Rides the exactly the same Sport & Track Dial works the same.There is alot of travel on the stock jeep.I took away 2.5 to 2.75" off the rear and 3/4" off the front.The problem is the camber had to make pan bars.The only other problem is it looks 300% better.I keep hearing about Eibach and H&R coming out with a kit.If they go more than 2"s the camber is a problem and they will have to provide adjustable pan bars.Here is a video

Its better I show you with pictures in any event everything was removed and the shop run 3" stainless steel rather than stock OEM 2.75" created a crossover and placed (2) 10" resonators.They took the OEM exhaust valves and widened them to fit the 3" pipes and placed them in the original location to mimic the exhaust for back pressure as well the ECO system.They put back the OEM tips back.The exhaust valves is why the aftermarket exhaust people are having a hard time coming out with a system.The shop that did the exhaust said the OEM Stainless exhaust valves are the finest his shop has ever seen.He tried to order them from the factory for his racing systems that they make, Mopar told him they are not avaliable or for sale

PICTURES OF THE VALVES BACK IN POSITION


THE CROSSOVER


PICTURES OF THE RESONATORS



RESONATORS ALL IN CONNECTION TO THE HEADERS

The Track and Sport dial work the same no clearance issues and no rub running with 305/35ZR22'S all the way around on 22x11's I thought it would be a problem.There is only one thing it looks 300% better.I'm sure they will be jacking off for a while doing a lowering kit.I couldn't wait and pulled the trigger
