|FyrFytr704||Well, this certainly confirms it - I am definitely going for the 3.5" - 4" range!|

Metalcloak 3.5" lift???
Does anyone know anything about the Metalcloak JK Wrangler Game-Changing Mid Arm 3.5" Suspension System? I use my Jeep every day for work so I cant get crazy. This kit looks impressive. It uses the 6PakTM Long Travel Shocks, Metalcloak Dual Rate Coils, Duroflex Control Arms with Roto-Bearing, Duroflex Joint, and front & rear Solid Chromoly Track Bars. Anyone using this kit?

Bob you and I are in the same boat. I'm getting my '14 JKUR Wednesday and have already started ordering things for it, including a q-tec hitch and I just received my Rancho geometry correction brackets. I'm ordering a TF 2.5" spring lift with shock adapters next week.
Question for Teraflex.. You mentioned the kit with adapters has a different track bar? If I wanted to swap to longer shocks later on, what will I need? Are the spring identical between kits?

Are the shocks on the Rubicon the same as on the Sport/s? I am ordering a 2014 JKUR and was thinking of the 2.5 with extensions. I will be adding bumpers carrier and winch.

|Julius||Since I just got my first Jeep and am looking into lifts this was AWESOME!! Thanks!|
|09-14-2013 10:14 AM|
Definitely, the 2.5" kit with shocks and 35s is the best choice for my needs...

|insylem||Nice video. Learned some things I didn't know before.|

good stuff. My question is: I have 3.21 gears on my 2013 JKU freedom edition. If I went with a performance leveling kit, can I run 33" or 35" tires and not sacrifice performance or fuel mileage? I do mostly street and/or beach driving.

|TeraFlex||2.5" kit will be perfect for you. I do highly recommend the shocks.|

|TeraFlex||I prefer the 2.5" kit with shocks as the extensions are using a stock shock that isn't really valved for the increased spring rate. The extensions were provided as an option for someone looking to do 2.5" springs on a budget, hence the different style rear track bar bracket.|
|08-23-2013 03:33 AM|
Maybe I missed it in the video. Teraflex, can you explain which would be smarter, your 2.5" kit with shocks or shock adapters. First jeep, first lift here.
It is my DD and practically new. Ok, it's a year old but has 6000 miles on it since i've been deployed. The 2.5" seems very practical for what i'm looking for: A little height and the room to move from my 33s to 35s if I decide to later on.

|TeraFlex||Jon snow, Sorry I didnt see your post earlier. If you are going to stay with the 285's I'd reccommend one of our leveling kits, either the spring one (1351500) or a puck system (1155200) which will give you enough room to clear the 285's. If you like to carry lots of gear or are planning on adding bumpers I'd point to more to the spring version.|

Great info .. I have been watching the Teraflex videos, I wish all the manufactures would put the "how to" videos together.
|08-17-2013 12:06 PM|
Question for TeraFlex: what lift kit would you recommend for me based on above setup and intended use for everyday driving with weekend off-roading. Not looking to tackle the extreme trails, but able to traverse most moderate ones. Also, is a basic lift kit a do-it-yourself operation (I'm comfortable doing routine maintenance on a vehicle such as oil/filter changes, plugs and wires, coolant changes, tire rotations, etc., and have also done shock replacement), or should I take it to a mechanic.
|08-13-2013 02:23 AM|
Describe what you have now, what you're planning to buy, who's going to be doing the install, how you think you'll use it, etc.
Then ask a bunch of questions.
Rinse, lather, repeat.

|Spaste19||Great video. It helps, but I alrady know what lift I want. My problem with pulling the trigger is not knowing what else is affected? I hear about exhaust relocations, need for a track bar, etc. If I'm going to do it, I'm going to do it right, but am worried about what I don't know.|
