FireMike Just plugged in a order of Overlines F/R into the shipping calculator to see where shipping costs would be. I live in NW Oregon, it came out to $150 bucks. Completely reasonable shipping rate. You will not loose my business MC!

Give us a call. We do use a different company to ship to Hawaii and the computer can not factor for this.

Call them. They will work with you. My Overlines with 6" flares arrived Friday.

Steve98 Northridge 4x4 hooked it up for me. I did overlines, extended corners on my LJ, and rockers, all with 6" flares. Free shipping, same price metalcloak has listed on their site but I didn't get the 5% discount for buying it all. I honestly doubt metalcloak would still give the 5% at the same time they offer free shipping. Free shipping from Northridge saves way more than 5%.

Mike5087 Fenders and front bumper come Thursday! Fingers crossed on an "easy" install! Hopefully the tire carrier gets moving. I'm sick of the rattle
04-01-2014 10:05 PM
Steve2012 My suspension came in today, well worth the wait. High quality stuff!
03-18-2014 05:15 AM
Mike5087 ^ x2 on the waiting! I check my order status everyday. Very depressing seeing "processing" next to everything... And I'm only on week 2!! The saga continues!!
03-15-2014 01:10 PM
JeePeters 6" Overline fenders/flares front and rear are now on order. Thanks for your help Will. So far MC has been very easy to do business with. Now for the hard part.......waiting for them to arrive!
03-08-2014 09:21 AM
JeePeters FYI - I just re-ran my order on their website and for the Overline fenders with 6" flares front and rear the shipping cost is about half of what I was quoted about 2 months ago from the website. I think I first calculated freight when their online freight quoting system was screwed up.

00TJSport I got the full set of control arms there and really want their 3.5" springs. Guess it'll wait til next year. The new ca's made a huge difference.
03-07-2014 12:44 PM
Mike5087 XJ- I just placed an order yesterday (a rather large order) and Will was able to work with me on the shipping. Obviously it wasn't free, but it definitely helped. Shoot him a PM and see what he can do. Good people to do business with.
03-07-2014 11:53 AM
xj-boonie I can't believe I missed the free shipping too - though at the time I was still deciding between two different lifts and bumpers... that's what I get for reviewing things to death!

I've got the tires and winch, just need the lift and bumper now! My fingers are crossed too!

Cloaked Willys James, Was great to meet you and I am glad I could help out. Thank you for stopping by.

I just wanted to let everyone know that I am going to try and keep a better eye on this forum. This is a busy time of year with everyone getting their tax money and ordering parts. We are doing what we can to keep shipping down and on larger orders can usually do something to help out. As Matson said we are not looking to make money on shipping but do need to cover our cost.

If you have any questions feel free to give me a call or shoot me a PM.

Just checked their price was more than buying directly from Metal Cloak and paying their silly shipping. Still glad I went with RK.
We are a tad bit higher but as far as suspension components go we should have it in stock ready to ship the same day you order.

JKTHOMPS I am going to place this here since the cost of shipping influenced me to drive to MC and pick up what I needed.

Your customer service rocks! I called yesterday and spoke to Will to make sure you had the inner fenders in stock and decided to drive up and pick them up (only about an 1hr 15min drive for me). It was a heck of a lot cheaper than the shipping I was quoted online lol. I must give props to Will for his help and knowledge. Once I got there to pick up the liners he answered all of my questions about MC's armor, fenders, bumpers and the lift. Amazed to see the original JKU and all the goodies on it. As far as the lift is concerned, I was torn between MC and RK as are many individuals. Will answered all of my questions and concerns and showed me the lift setup on the red JKU (which is a beast btw, love it!). I have decided MC all the way. I will be contacting Will over the next couple of days to order up the setup I want, and of course, after seeing the fenders and armor, I will go that route eventually when I need to replace my current finders and body armor.
Anyways, I know you guys are working on the shipping costs, but I wanted to let you know that my first experience at the MC shop was a great one and thumbs up to Will and his help. Even my wife was very happy to know that when I drop the $$$ on a product the company is close and stands by their product (which helps when it is time to $$$$).

Thanks guys!

By the way, it only took me about an hour to install the inner fenders. They are great! The only issue I have is the passenger side liner that goes towards the firewall was a pain with the all the wiring and plugs are there (2012+ JKU). However, nothing a little persuasion couldn't handle.

Thanks again and see you guys soon!

matsonian Sorry guys I've been absent from the forums for a while...

Quite a hot topic here, and I appreciate that...

So, here is the skinny on shipping...

We use a backend called Volusion. They provide our shopping cart on the website.

As part of their programming, we put in our UPS account and it is supposed to apply our rate to all our customers orders.

After the first of the year, something changed. We were working with it to figure out the best rates we can give to you, but, apparently, it went the total opposite direction.

However, it was the feedback of our customers that had us investigating it and making the changes necessary to fix it (apparently, the rates you all were seeing were basic UPS rates - total retail - not representing our negotiated rates that we prefer to pass on to you.)

We have never had any desire to make a profit on shipping. It is, however, one of our greatest expenses, so we try to make sure all costs are covered.

We are still a small, growing, company who is blessed to have great customers like you, and we do make mistakes.

However, it is your great feedback that helps us get better and better at what we do.

As a note... we do have real, live, people available to talk with you if you have any questions at all about your build, about your order, or, in this case about screwed up shipping rates.

Free shipping from MC would probably have me pulling the trigger on front overline flare/fenders and rear fenders. Free shipping would pretty much bring the cost of MC's in line with GenRight. Advantage for MC is that they offer black powdercoating option plus I think they look better than GenRight.
If you think that's bad enter my zip code just for fun.. 99503

00TJSport I ordered my full set of control arms today. I mentioned to them that the shipping cost was way high the other day. He told me to remove everything in the shopping cart and do it again. The shipping was cut in half. They said the had a glitch in their system recently which made things wacky.
02-18-2014 05:56 PM
my996duc1 has anyone tried calling them and talking to them ??

when I ordered mine I called and worked out a better deal on shipping.

I also got a discount on my parts since I was buying front and rear fenders and the rock rails all at the same time.
