Is it any better than if they had done it to a jk?

The grill alone makes it better.

I like it, and I agree that thing is beautiful.  Kinda liked it as its stock version, but it looks tough as hell now.  Still love my JK more though.

Must of started out as a Rubicon, they come with highline fenders now from the factory. Sports and Saharas have lower mounted fenders.

First close up look at the JL axles. I feel like I’m looking back in time with the CAD system...

Nice video, thanks for posting.  I've been searching for details on the new Danas, but not much is out there yet.  Wish they had the Rubicon version, though.  I'm also a little skeptical about the FAD (CAD).

I copied this off another forum.   A Stock JL.      Figured I would add fuel to the JL fire


"Metalcloak had one on their CTI trailer and did a proper 15PSI flex test.

The JLU scored 636 which is surprisingly more than a stock JKU scores at around 540. This shows there have been significant upgrades to the suspension design/shocks. In fact, the 636 is about the same as many 2.5 "kits" for JK's, such as the AEV, Rubicon Express and Teraflex with 9550's... "

Good for jeep to recognize what the weekend trail rider wants. They may not want to climb serious rocks but that should make it easier for stock owners. Oh wait how much is a stock sport jl?
