Metalcloak's line of JK Wrangler Suspension Systems including

  • Duroflex Suspension System[/URL]
  • Dual Rate Lift Kits[/URL]
Are now available in 2.5" for both the JK Wrangler (2-Door) and JK Wrangler Unlimited (4-Door).

2-Door JK with the new, 2-Door Specific, 2.5" Dual Rate Coils

Featuring the Metalcloak Duroflex Joints and TRUE Dual Rate Coils, the Metalcloak suspension systems give you the most droop of any LCG lift.

With 21 7/8" Free Length in the front and 19 1/2" of Free Length in the rear, our 2.5" Dual Rate Coils provide the same Free Length as it's 3.5" brother, providing incredible droop for a true LCG build.

Combined with the Patent Pending Duroflex Joints (depending on the system) the Metalcloak 2.5" Suspension is the perfect choice for the LCG "Sleeper" Build.

Did metalcloak increase the price by 100 for the 2.5" dual rate kit?
Yes, the 2.5" Dual Rate Kit Introductory Price has, unfortunately, come to an end.

Still a savings over buying the parts individually.

I am considering the 2.5" Gamechanger OME/ARB/Lite with with 315/70/17 Duratracs and and stock fenders with an CoD/MW3 bumpers.

Will I need a new driveshaft or risk damaging my stock one?

The instructions say backspacing of 4.0" or less is recommended. Therefore, could I save some money and get by with stock Rubicon wheels without spacers? If not, most of the wheels I'm looking at have 4.5-5.0" of backspacing. Will either of these larger than 4" backspacing create an issue?

Thanks!

Never mind about the backspacing. I just realized I understood it incorrectly.

this brand is the reason I havent gone out and got a Cheaper lift kit. Ive had my jeep 2 years now, and refuse to let my budget keep me from getting what I want. A few more months of saving and I will be purchasing this kit. I cant wait.

I bought it during the free shipping promo. It came in yesterday, I'll install next weekend. Will let you know, but everything I've heard from others has all been great!

The kits that we build do not require a new drive shaft. We know of several customers that have put 30k+ miles on our kits with the stock shafts.

That being said the stock shafts do leave a lot to be desired and I have seen them fail in bone stock jeeps. I will always recommend them as part of a long term build that is going to see off road use.

anyone get this kit yet? how does it handle
I installed the 2 1/2" kit on my 2015 Hard Rock two door and have been extremely pleased with the handling and great ride afterwards.
No more body lean and I even tow my boat with the Wrangler since it handles the additional weight now and doesn't push the rear end around.
