Simple status
85 deg ambient temps @ a crawl pace provided good test for cooling setup with no issues

Small humm driveline vibrations at 85mph no issues
No driving instability

Golan 4.6 stroker = star of the show just do it!

Metalcloak 3.5short arm - little to compare but happy with setup after setup
Actually enjoy the dual rate coils
Installed my airbags but may not need them for my usage now vs stock coils

Shocks could be better but pay for what you get applies

Pic is without swaybar disconnected

Quick update

SPAL is a great company & would thoroughly recommend them -

https://www.spalusa.com

Gas mpg isn’t great the cost of running the Jeep has increased but it gets compliments from everyone Jeeper or not

Golan stroker engine still kicks ass

May replace shocks

Metalcloack Suspension is noticeably more flex as miles accrue
Mouse, johncanfield and Desert Dog like this.
