Saw a 2010 4dr the other day and it looked pretty good, I asked the guy what he was running for a lift and he said it was a Clayton 4.5 suspension lift.

I was just wondering if anyone had any first hand info on the lift, I've never heard of the company.

Just curious....I'm still a die hard Rock Krawler fan/customer.

I am running a 3.5" Clayton on my JKU and it performs very very well. It has awesome street manners. It does very well offroad as far as ride and articulation goes. I would recommend Clayton Offroad to anyone. Ive got JKS Quicker disconnects and running Bilstein 5100 shocks with my lift.

They build top quality stuff. I know their kits were real popular for the TJ's, the long arms for them are virtually indestructible. They are a great stand up company with great customer service from what I've heard. Rock Krawler is just as good though too, you would probably be happy with either one.

i've got the 3.5" in my rig and its been great so far (mostly on road as i just put it on and have yet to take it for a full offroad trip). first impression you will get is that the kit is heavy duty, all the control arms are like steel girders and the quality is top notch. i can also confirm customer service was great, dealt with adam and he offered help through the process and even reached out to him on my install day for a few questions.

its good stuff, not as well known as some of the others, but definitely high quality.

That's cool to hear about another stand up company that sells good offroad products.

I firmly believe that competition between all these offroad company's is what makes a better product for the consumers...........

I beat the living he'll out of their 4 link in my tj on 42s and it just wouldn't break. I love their stuff.

My plan is to eventually do their kit but leave my rk springs and rancho adjustable on.

been running their 3.5 for over two years now. The control arms are stout to say the least. The only problem I ever saw was another guy here in town broke their track bar bracket and they had a new one to him in 2 days time. Took the old one back to see what happened to it.

I am doing the same thing. I have Rock Krawler 2.5 springs and just ordered 5160's. I got Adam to put up their track bar measurements on the web site so I could do some measuring to see if they will go short enough to work with the RK 2.5 springs.

I had a complete 3.5 kit for my 4 door and. I never got the chance to do the install because I traded in my 4 door JK on an Armada for the wife. Clayton’s stuff is top notch. Nothing against Rock Krawler but I am not sold on the poly bushings. I really like how Clayton uses clevite bushings in his arms and trackbars.

Now I have a 2007 2 door that I purchased at the salvage sale with a front end hit. I keep kicking myself for selling the Clayton kit.
