3.5 JT Game Changer installed. Looks like I picked up just over 3.5” at the front bumper but only .25” at the rear hitch. Front should settle a bit in time. Happy so far, may need a small puck added to the rear.

Just put in 17x9 -12 Vision Nemesis with 315/70/R17 Falken AT3W. Love the look and wheel give me the required back space for the Metalcloak Game changer on the way. Big thanks to Don at Discount Tire (@Discount Tire )on this forum, for working with me to set up this package. Had a little help...
I am considering the full Metalcloak Game changer and replacing the rear track bar and rear upper control arms with the Rock Krawler Rear JT Pro-X upgrade kit for the triangulated 4 link. Anyone else researched this option? Pros/cons?
Has anyone installed the game changer with 2.5" front springs and the 3.5" in the rear. According to Metalcloak this would come pretty close to maintaining factory rake. Pictures would be appreciated. I am considering this configuration, as well as the 2.5" level with a 0.75" spacer in the rear...
I am looking at the same wheels with the Nitto Ridge Grapplers 35x12.5R17. I have run a few calculators that say tires will stick out 2.8” further than stock. Nearly 3” on each side seems like a lot. How far out past the fenders are they? I am also looking at the MC game changer lift that...
I emailed metalcloak and got the following response to some of these questions Their answers in RED:
What is the base-line for the nominal heights of the lifts? I understand this can be a difficult question as every rig is outfitted different, but how do you determine the nominal lift? We...

It does look pretty level. I was thinking that from the factory the rear is about 1.5” higher than the front so raising the front only would surpass the height of the rear making it look like it is squatting.
I am ok with level, just don’t want that squat look.
Can you shed some light on the 2.5” as a leveling? Everything I seem to see is that there is a 1.5” rake on the rubicon. I would think that 2.5” would set the front higher than the rear.
Also did you have to change out the front drive shaft for the 2.5” leveling kit?
I had this qued up when I made my order for the black plates back in September, I opted for "JTRBICN". 4 months later and still don't have the plates. Called DMV Friday and they told me they are running about 6 mo right now.
