Looks good. I like the height on that. I thought about going that height but at 5'8" I'm vertically challenged and already struggle getting in mine with 37"s and a 2" lift at work where I park on an angle in the garage.

Thank you... I’m 5’ 9” and yes it’s sometimes a challenge to get in but so far I’ve made it in every time. I guess I’m use to getting in... I use to own a JKU with 35’s and the MC 3.5” lift.

See now sir you are just an enabler here. :) I was hoping you would say it was almost near impossible to get in. ;) First, I went with 35"s and thought damn those just are not big enough and now with a 2" lift, I thinking the same thing. The JT seems to have an appetite for these things.

Nice JK. Truth be told I miss my JKU Rubi. I had a 10th Anniversary. When I see my JT all that goes away though for the most part. :) Honestly, I think the JT rides and drives so, much better to me with the added utility.

yes! I am an enabler! The JT/JL platform is a big change in such subtle ways. I really enjoy the transmission and the interior room.

After 2.5 days, I can say the queen is better than ever.

Here is everything that was done... take off the fat bobs garage spacer lift, fox extended shocks, fox TS stabilizer, oem driveshaft, springs, control arms, draglink and tie rod.

Installed evo front truss, steersmarts raised trackbar bracket/ top mount draglink/ tierod, Adams front 1350 driveshaft, Metalcloak 3.5” game changer lift/ front durosprings, falcon 3.3 sp2’s in their longest length/ JK version 2.2 stabilizer, rockhard front control arm skids/ rear control arm skids/ rear shock skids.

All I can say is wow, such a difference in driving. She stay down the road straight, definitely less bouncy/ wallowy down the road.

I’m super happy with the result and can’t wait for wheeling season this year. A big shout out to @Northridge4x4 for the install at the Denver location. You guys knocked out the park.

Now for some pictures up the queens skirt!

Well due to choosing the Falcon shocks, the DV8 compressor bracket I had installed was in the way of the shock on the drivers side. I decided the ARB underseat twin mount was my next step. Install wasn’t too bad but had its challenges.
To make it easier to install, took off the doors and then unbolted they seat. There’s 2 connectors to unlatch and the seat came tight out. Then came the cutting, using the instructions I cut the rear seat duct and the carpet. Then you build the air compressor and install it on the plate, take it over to the mounting location and you mark a hole and get to drilling, you can see I painted the hole up. I then ran the wires underneath, between the frame and the body, Some handy zip points along the way. Then you tighten the front bolt down, run the wires through the grommet and seal the crap out of it with silicone. After all that, you put the seat back in, then the doors. Walla... air for the queen!

When I got my lift done, the installers made a couple cuts for the falcon resi shocks in the inner fender, which turned into a big hole that allowed too much to be seen/shown of my girls insides... what a guy gotta do to keep the queen happy ... add JCR inner fenders that fit falcon resi shocks! I decided early to keep partial factory plastic inner fenders and I cut them to not interfere with the new ones. Yea... soo much better looking now.

I told the queen she needed to help the peasants, so she could have more respect and admiration. She did a great job carrying the weight of the people (aka 25 bags of mulch)

the awesome part was how she handled down the road... the ride was awesome with the extra weight.

The queen loved every minute of it.

pictures of her loaded and unloaded

The queen has been having some noises coming from her rear. I performed a visual check and found one of her lower control arm skid plates not in its right position. It was somehow misaligned and allowing contact to the control arm. So with help, I got it fixed... the queen is happy again.

Are you having any contact issues with your Steer Smarts front end? I've been running the same setup on my JK and went to purchase it for my JT and now there's a warning not to use the bracket and flipped draglink for fear of contact issues when running the GC lift.

no issues that I have come by. The setup was recommended and professional installed by the guys @Northridge4x4 at the Denver shop.
You know they warned the same thing on the JK’s right??? I had this exact same setup on my JKU and I had it CTI’d by MC, I was at 3 pucks (like I am on the queen) and they told me I could go down to 2 all the way around. I think the warning is there due to people not getting their setup done correctly IMO.
