13" TJ Wrangler Front 6Pak Shock
Our Next Generation of 6Paks - now with longer travel!

Designed specifically for applications where space is paramount; the 6Pak compact shock body extends shafts from both sides of a floating remote reservoir/body allows for a much smaller compressed shock while still providing more extended length than ANY other bolt on shock.

Thanks to the tireless work of our engineers, we've now made the 6Pak shocks even better...

MetalCloak's Floating Shock Body Technology (FST) provides a game-changing platform featuring parallel shafts extending from a floating body, centralized by dual opposing reservoirs; this revolutionary feature allows for twice the usual stoke over typical industry shocks.

Now the problems of low-hanging shocks or limited travel because of your shock body are fully and completely eliminated.

The shock is no longer the limiting factor in your build.
