JK Wrangler 2.5" True Dual-Rate Lift Kits

Product ID: *A1125
The MetalCloak JK Wrangler 2.5" Dual-Rate Lift Kit is the perfect kit for the discerning JK owner looking for a little lift but not planning on extreme off-road conditions.

Designed to use the RockSport Shocks, Fox Shocks, or Stock Shocks (or you can choose to add any aftermarket shock).

MetalCloak's True Dual Rate™ Coils are the focus of the kit, providing a more stable ride and better overall ride quality then typical single rate or progressive coils. Front Upper Control arms are included in the kit to allow for setting the proper caster angle. [more...]

This is an entry-level kit -- a 2.5" lift kit, that gives you lift, unprecedented ride quality, and at an affordable price that allows you to build upon the kit if your ultimate goal is the Game Changer.

Now made with DuPont™ Kevlar® fiber - the first suspension components manufactured with Kevlar® for industry leading durability.

Note: All 2012+ JK Wrangler will require exhaust spacers (7078) for clearance for the front drive shaft.

Note: MetalCloak Recommends You Have a Suspension Specialist Align Your Jeep Once MetalCloak Suspension is Installed.

Note: MetalCloak does not recommend powder coating your True Dual Rate Coils. See instructions for additional details.

Introducing the Durotrak™ Bushing

Eliminate squeaks and clunks in your steering with the technology of MetalCloak’s Durotrak™ bushings; exclusively found in MetalCloak track bars.

Introducing the Front Lower Outboard Shock Mount

Engineered to move the lower shock away from the Jeep frame rails and rotate the shock eyelet from factory position by 90 degrees allowing it to swing with the axle vs bind on the bushing. Only Comes With the RockSport and Fox Shocks Options.

THE TECH

IT ALL STARTS WITH THE BUSHINGS

The Patented Duroflex™ Joint ( metalcloakpatents.com) is the key to getting the greatest flex in a JK Wrangler bolt-on suspension kit. Period.

OEM Clevite and Typical Flex Joint is the Duroflex Joint

MetalCloak has taken the best features of the most widely used control arm joints and combined those features to create the Duroflex Joint, producing a Low-Maintenance, High-Misalignment (34˚), Self-Centering, Rebuildable Joint with an OEM quality ride.

Duroflex Kevlar Bushing

Now with Kevlar!

The MetalCloak Kevlar® bushings can be identified by the M located on the surface.

DuPont™ Kevlar® continues to take on new challenges, their scientists are continuously innovating and working on a range of new opportunities through collaborations with communities, industrial manufacturers, and governments. Together we’re bringing the strength, durability and performance of Kevlar® to new frontiers. Kevlar® aramid fiber is pushing boundaries and defying obstacles every day.

What are True Dual Rate Coils?

MetalCloak JK Wrangler True Dual Rate™ Coils have one of the longest free length in the industry for greater articulation without sacrificing the OEM ride quality.


Without the advantage of the Dual Rate Design, the required Spring Rate would be too low and "squishy" -- just loading your Jeep up with supplies would affect ride height and quality.

Not just any track bar bushing...meet the Patented Durotrak

Durotrak Bushing

The Patented Durotrak Bushing (metalcloakpatents.com) is a NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) bushing made with a proprietary rubber compound unique to MetalCloak. The Durotrak two part bushing is comprised of two pieces that thread together making this bushing simple to install without a press, reduces vibration and harshness transferred to the driver, and improves vehicle steering input.
