Time to go up!

Good luck, both are great lifts. Either way you will be happy.
 
What a great weekend!! Received my Clayton 3.5 lift on Friday and installed it myself over the weekend. Pretty straightforward instructions that were somewhat easy to follow. Used two floor jacks and two jack-stands. Took me part of Friday afternoon and all day Saturday to finish it up. Caster and pinion angles were fine, but I will most likely replace the front drive shaft at some point in the near future.

Here's a few pics:

TBH, the pics don't do it justice. But...you can definitely notice when climbing into, and out of, the Jeep. I took measurements before and after, so I'll post those up later.

Very happy with the results!

I'm anxiously awaiting my 392 to put my 2.5" GC lift on. I went with MC over Clayton due to availability and reviews, as well as being able to flex the sh!t out of it

So what's the ride like compared to stock? I'm still debating on doing something similar but not if it sacrifices on road driveability.
 
This is probably a dumb question, but I don't know much about lift kits as I've never had one installed...did you have to get it aligned?

Do you have the recon pkg and then also added the lift as well. What size tires?

I, personally, think it rides better on the road. I have had it up to speed on the highway and get zero shimmy/shake and the steering is great. I love the adjustability of the control arms and Clayton instructs you how to dial them in. Same for the sway bar end-links. I still have the Kenda's (37x12.5R17) that I had prior to lift and they're riding very smoothly.

Not a dumb question at all! Yes...I took it in after the install and had it aligned. Came out perfect!

My 392 is a non-XR. I removed the factory MOPAR lift (same as on the XR) when I installed the Clayton lift. My tires are Kenda Klever R/T's at 37x12.5R17.
