The MetalCloak JK Wrangler 2.5"/3.5" True Dual-Rate Lift Kit, Fox Edition, features the highly respected Fox shock absorbers. This is the perfect kit for the discerning JK owner looking for a little lift but not planning on extreme off-road conditions.[more...]

The kit includes our True Dual Rate™ Coils providing a more stable ride than traditional single rate or the more recent trend towards progressive coils.

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

This is an entry-level kit. A 3.5" lift kit, that gives you an affordable lift, unprecedented ride quality, and at an affordable price.

Working closely with FOX Shocks, MetalCloak has chosen to offer the BDS tuned FOX 2.0 Performance series shocks as a standard shock option.

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.

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.

This specially designed rod end has been engineered just for the JK Wrangler steering.

Full side to side range of motion ensures bind free steering when pushing the extremes of your Jeeps travel and articulation, while a limited "front to back" range of movement is built into the rod-end and eliminates the possibility of the offset to allow the tie-rod to "flop".
