If you are afraid of scratching, denting or breaking stuff, this one is not for you. Very excited to do this one. It really kicked my ass last time. At the end of the day, I had bent the tie rod, reshaped my muffler, bent a lower control arm and sheared off a wheel stud.

I now have MetalCloak for the lower fronts and still have the stock ones for the rest. I want to see how the MC ones stand up to abuse before getting the rest.

Holy crap.. How did the Jeep drive after that trip?

I am up grading my Tie Rod with a currie right now. I should be ready for this trip - just waiting on the currie tie rod and the tera flex flip kit.

Actually it drove straighter coming home than it did on the drive out there. I kept it to 65 on the highway and really wasnt bad at all.

So when you say they the "SHIT" does that mean they are good or bad? You young people really need to sit down with a dictionary and look at the meanings of words. Don't take this wrong but a lot of times you say something is really defined as bad, but it's really good....

So are they good or bad. Also a reasonable explanation as to goodness or badness would help out those who are inquiring... Please realize sometimes a shit is good, or bad! sometimes depending on the position of your pants....

You old fucks..... THE SHIT is good, SHIT is bad.... LoL Seriously though, they are awesome. Plus they are so quiet. My jeep was so noisy before because of my control arms, squeaks and rattles everywhere. The guys would give me a hard time on the trail because it is just squeak, squeak, squeak all the time.

Now with the MC arms its smooth, doesn't make a noise. Flex is awesome, no binding, no issues, and it feels like it handles better on the street too. I plan on finishing off the lift in the near future with MC springs, rear track bar, and then some Fox Racing shocks. I would love the 6pack shocks but they are just to expensive.

I can't say enough good things about Matson at MC and the customer service as well. They have fielded a ton of phone calls from me, Facebook posts about a track bar issue I had, returns & refunds, etc. They are awesome.

Maybe you should put your glasses on Nancy, because this run is on the 16th of February.

So now that I see this post, why didn't you go with the Currie Currectlynk HD steering system which includes the drag link instead of going with the Teraflex? The Currie is way beefier in my opinion and truly an adjust on the jeep set up too...then you install an Artec Truss with a HD raised trackbar bracket and call it good. Probably all for about the same price as your gonna spend on the Teraflex crap...
