Very nice write up, lots of high quality details, I like it! Putting an M & G on our 2011 GMC was a snap. Putting one on our '03 Rubicon, was a tad more difficult but, still not all that bad. But, putting one on this new '15 JKUR has got me wondering. I've done just about everything under the sun in mechanics on all my cars/trucks/motorhomes/boats/motorcycles for decades an decades. This is one of those things that I guess, I'm just getting tired. I'm tired of fighting things. Yeah, I suppose I'll get a new M & G and install it but, I'll be arguing with myself all during the installation.

OK, enough rant. You did a great job, great photos, great explanation and detail. I try and do the same when I'm showing something I've done on here. By the way, if you read this, what kind/model/amount of lift do you have on your JK? It looks good. Do you do much off roading? If so, do you rub any on your fenders/rear/front?

I just installed a "Leveling kit" on ours and am running 315 70 17 ATs on American Racing Anson Off Road 17"x7" wheels with 4.25" off-set. I'm getting a bit of rubbing, on dips even while street driving, mostly on the back fenders.

Thanks Scott.
I just purchased the Jeep, figured it was time to find something a little smaller to tow. Have not had it off road yet and not sure how much I will until spring. We are making a west trip so might see some mild action then.
I installed a 2-1/2" Teraflex lift with Rancho Shocks and a Synergy front Track bar to center the axle back up. Tires are 315/70 R17 on Procomp wheels with 4.75 backspace. From what I have read they really should not rub, 37's seems to be where you start having more clearance issues with a 2-1/2" lift.

Looks like I uploaded one of the wrong pictures.

Beautiful installation and write-up! You did a cleaner installation than the Pro's did on my Jeep.

I agree really neat write up with detail instructions and you will love the ease of hook up with M&G.
