Shelby rocks. She takes both hands off the wheel while blasting down a gravel road and laughing.
That Bronco needs more lift, the rubbing is bad.

Mitch is a blast and enjoy his videos...
The rubbing is good example of why I would not let 4WP touch my truck or future bronco. If I decide to get a lift, I would get Kings, Fox or many others coilovers before the 4WP set up. Lot of quality family owned off-road shops around that do great installations for those if us who don't wrench on our vehicles much.

So compared to the other ride in the video his shocks were too loose? It looked like the front was sitting higher than the back. I imagine that softness is better on the road vs off-road.

He talks about adjusting the ride height (lift) at the end, but that won't fix the offroad rubbing since that is primarily determined by compressed shock length and not the preload.

If it is the same setup in his previous video, it is 4WP coilovers and 17x8+35 wheels. I think this is close to the setup recommended by 4WP, so we now see that the 4WP solution doesn't work well offroad with 37's unless you can accept significant rubbing. I think the 4WP coilovers are best suited to add 35's to non-SAS Broncos (or 37's for street duty). Note that the King shocks are significantly longer and probably fix the 37" rubbing issues, but they sacrifice wheel travel to do that.

If you watch his install video, he talks about how he will try other lift kits when they become available to compare.

AWESOME! Let him be the gunned pig!

Ouch. Couldn't get through the video, all that rubbing was making me cringe. As those 4wp's are adjustable I wonder if he had them cranked up to max height or not? I was originally had a set of the 4wp coilovers but since have decided to go in a different direction.

They are adjustable and he did not have them set in the highest settings. He talked about it in the video

And that's one of the inherent challenges with lifting IFS.
For sure the Fun Haver was cranked down more..but then check out his inner CV boot.
