MC 2.5 or 3.5 Game changer Question

Additional Question on the 3.5” Game Changer:

Does anyone know what the full “range” of travel is on a JKU after it’s installed? Assume you’d be using the 6 pack shocks.

That’s really a subjective questions. Depending on how much bump stop you run, tire size, Fenders, and/or how much sheet metal you cut out.

The six packs have a travel range of about 15” of travel based on collapsed and fully extended measurements.

Here’s why I ask: like a few others on this thread I find myself debating whether to do the Teraflex Falcon 3.3 shocks (really, really like them) or the MC 6 packs. It’s pretty clear that the 6 packs get some great range of motion, but I’d like to quantify it. If I chose to go Falcon, how much would I really lose, and would I notice it?

If you chose the Falcon Shocks, you will lose right at 4” of usable travel vs the 6 Pack’s. This is based off the 3.5” lift size. With that said the Six Packs are not for everyone. They require maintenance and special brackets for them to work. See the attached tables for reference.

3.5 game changer with 6 packs and 35" procomps. Running with an epic amount of weight as you can see and it still sits pretty high.

Just check your pinch seams in the rear fender well. Make sure to pay attention rear pinch seam as well.

Interestingly enough, when I went to trim the rear pinch seam on my 17 JKUR it was already done from the factory. I know it doesn't apply to your 11 but figured I would throw it out there for anyone who hasn't investigated their newer JK. I still trimmed the rock slider a bit to make sure it wouldn't rub. Hopefully my wheels come in soon so I can throw my 3.5 GC on.

Yep the newer models have the trim. Make sure to trim the rear part of the fender well as well quite a bit on the back side that can cut your tire as well. Especially running aftermarket arms.

Still running the stock rear bumper until I demolish it and bushwacker flat fenders so the rear-rear pinch seam isn't exposed yet but appreciate the heads up. The control arms will be set to center the wheel at full flex and enough bump stops to prevent it from rubbing.

Yank that rear bumper off and go with the fascia only!

man you guys are making me rethink my build over.. i wanted to go the cheap way with the Rocksports because i'm in Qc canada and shit gets expensive when it gets here .. but after seeing all this 6pack talk i'm questioning myself about witch way to go lol
 
I have the RockSports on my 2.5" Game Changer. I think it rides slightly better than stock. Travel is good (although I know it would be better with the 6paks). Frankly, I only had enough budget for the RockSports, and will likely upgrade in the future when it is time.
