A LOT of you have been asking about our lift kit and skid plates, wanting to know how they’re holding up! So after about 10k miles, here is are our thoughts on them!

As a side note, this is also our final day in Japan, and from what I hear it’s been snowing back home in Colorado! So stay tuned, because I’m sure snow wheeling will be in our very near future!

Hope you all enjoy the video!

And, of course, don’t forget to follow my Instagram as well for more rad car stuff!

    Why 3.5 inch instead of 5.5 inch lift?

    You are putting so much stress on this Jeep. This JL is not designed to for this. I predict it will break down fatally in two years.

    Great video, thanks. So far, did you have any mechanical issues? A bunch of people are saying Wrangler is a money pit, but i see a bunch of people that doesn't seem to have any issues with anything.

    I have a question. Do people reconnect the sway bar after off-roading?

    I was curious if you guys maybe recorded total how much you paid in gas throughout those ten thousand miles( not really including the off-roading just highway). I’m only curious because I recently traveled from CA to NC and it makes it more interesting when a wheeling Jeep does it fully loaded?

    Great review. Question…I know you guys might have said in one of the other videos and I just missed it…but which rock rails/sliders do you have on the jeep? They look a little like the Metalcloaks, but not exactly.

    Any problems with the Death Wobble? They said thats ones off the more recurrent problem in the jeep when you install the Lift kit, it's that true?

    First off I love your videos. In 2013 my son and I got into off-roading I had a 900xp RZR and my son had a 110 dirt bike he was only 9 years old at the time the dirt bike couldn’t keep up on the trails so in 2016 I got me a 2017 1000xp high lifter RZR and let my son have the 900xp we have lots of fun with them but were we live we cannot drive them on the road my plans are to sell my high lifter and get a 2 door JL for me so we can still go off-roading and use the JL as a daily driver also.

    I love the way your Jeep is setup and would like to see a video or even just a list of all the mods and upgrades y’all have done to yours including brands and things you may have done different maybe even how important the upgrade was like your skid plates before watching your videos that would have been one of the last upgrades I would have done now I see it’s one of the first I will do. Lastly thank you for making the videos I enjoy watching them for the off-roading and all the info y’all provide thanks

    Great review … something I hear is the upper part of the duel rate springs compress with the weight making them single rate !!! Y’all have an opinion on that ?

    Hey Guys, do you actually get any travel from the light end of the dual rate springs? It looks like the light section stays completely compressed with just normal weight on it. I suppose it helps keep them seated when extended?

    Thanks for the update. The skid plates really seem to be doing the job. You two have really put them to the test! I like the solution to the stabilizer. Getting that up out of the way should help a lot! I remember you tearing up the drive shaft. What was the final solution? If you covered that then I'm sorry I missed the update on the drive shaft. Thanks for all the great ride alongs. Kevin really is a nut!

    You should weigh yours and find a stock one and weigh it.
