Metalcloak 2.5" coils/2 door

Poll: metal cloak does not offer a 2 door 2.5" coil. The reason is supposedly no demand
I really want to see a 2 door 2.5" coil lift added to their lineup.
So...... Who would like MC to offer a 2.5" lift/coil ?

1 own a 4 door or don't care
2 heck yes
3 eh
4 bacon

2.5 on a light weight 2 door is more like 3.5
3.5 is more like 4.5

We are working on the 2.5" coils for the 2 doors. It will be a while before we have them available because we need to test them and make sure they are right before we start to ship them out. The demand for the 4 doors was a lot greater but we have enough from the 2 door crowd to justify making the springs.



BTW, Had to vote for bacon.

The thing that we are working on is keeping the same extended and collapsed measurements like we have with the 3.5" springs and 2.5" springs for the 4 door. This way you can get the same travel with different right heights.

All is fair in love and Jeeps. I just received my 3.5 MetalCloak lift yesterday. I definitely think that our two door brethren should enjoy the same as us 4 door bastards.

This just got me so pumped. I was gonna pull the trigger on the 3.5 inch for my 2 door and kept talking myself out of it because I have no need for that high of a lift. Now you just gave me more time to save money for 2.5 inch kit and your fenders!
