Todd McDaniel says:

Does it seem like the 37’s are putting strain on the engine and transmission? Will it go into 8th gear and what kind of mileage are you getting after the install? Any need or plans to re-gear?

Bobby S says:

Had to fwd that music was horrible with the same tune over and over. Give us some good music lol

josorzo11 says:

Nice videos bro . I got the same Jeep as you . Question Why didn’t you go with the mopar 2 inch lift kit ?

talon3633 says:

What size lift was this and what’s the total height at the tallest point on your Jeep. Just wondering if it will still fit in my garage.

Nick M says:

great vid. great edit. I own a 2018 jku. what led you to install the icon suspension over other brands?

Sentinel says:

Looks awesome man. Let us know how it wheels off-road now.

John SmithDE says:

Great job! Now you have to change the diff gearing and the brakes. Maybe later you can install some power rock sliders when you get tired of climbing up into your raised jeep. Happy trails.

Fritz Olivier Braun says:

I’m debating putting this or the EVO Enforcer w King Shocks on my JL, what’s your opinion on this one for On road smoothness?

Frank Contreras says:

Man, the Jeep looks awesome with lift and tires. Everything except the USMC plate on front. Lol I was in the Army. Just messing around

Paul Daeth says:

The “trail rated” badge actually means something. Look it up

Thomas D says:

Where did you get your tire delete license plate???

Rex0915 says:

Do you know the total height with the 37’s and this lift?

Alex Lindsay says:

Aghh… what do you mean it wasn’t all good? I have this kit on order =

TheJLGuys says:

Yo man you need a high clearance exhaust from Wraith Offroad
Find me on Instagram @thatwhitejl

Brayand Osorio says:

Hey man. I’ll be getting the upcoming Jeep truck as soon as it hits the dealership near me. I was thinking about doing the YouTube thing as a way to keep up with upgrades and things. I guess what I’m trying to ask here.. what’s your camera and microphone set up? Editing software? And any other tips to get me started?

M C says:

When doing lifts, using some stock control arms, do yourself a favor: Loosen all the bolts on them when installing the rest of the lift parts, lower the jeep to the ground on the new lift, then go back and tighten all the control arm bolts to spec. This will help with both longevity and ride quality.

Rick Boyett says:

Friend, your taste in wheels is outstanding. That is a DAMN GOOD lookin JLU. Subscribed and looking forward to your next video.
