It's Your Jeep, Only Better

TJ/LJ Jeep Wrangler Long Travel, Short Arm Suspension, 3.5", ARB Edition

The MetalCloak TJ/LJ Jeep Wrangler 3.5" LTSA (Long Travel, Short Arm) Suspension Kit, ARB Edition, has all the components of the LTSA, including the high-misalignment vibration-dampening Duroflex™ Control Arms, but without the 6Pak™ Shocks.

Instead we worked closely with ARB, a leader in the off-road industry, and decided to add ARB's Old Man Emu Nitrocharger Sport Long Travel Shocks as an option to our Game-Changing product line.

Who should use this kit? This kit is perfect for the TJ/LJ owner who wants the best flex and the best ride quality, but doesn't need the unprecedented off-roading articulation and capability of the 6Pak Shocks.

Or if you are still running stock fenders, and want the best suspension on the market today, then this kit is perfect for you.

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.

SUSPENSION. WITHOUT LIMITS. REALLY.

This is our JK Wrangler Duroflex 3.5" Mid-Arm bolt-on suspension system with the addition of
Old Man Emu Nitrocharger Sport Long Travel Shocks.

Perfect as an intermediate step for the TJ/LJ owner who wants the best, most comfortable quality on or off road, but does not need or want the 6Paks Shocks just yet.

We chose the Old Man Emu Nitrocharger Sport Long Travel Shocks. after closely working with Industry Leader ARB and looking at all the other aftermarket shocks available.

While most companies brand their own standard shocks (using international manufacturers like Bilstein) and uses a company like King or Fox for their top end shocks, we are doing the opposite.

We manufacture our own (in house) top end shocks, the 6Paks, but decided to not try and brand basic shocks... the ARB Old Man Emu Nitrocharger Sport Long Travel Shocks. work according to our high expectations.

A LEGENDARY SHOCK FROM A LEGENDARY COMPANY.

Old Man Emu's proven line of Long Travel shock absorbers includes some of the latest shock valving technology achieving a whole new level of ride quality.

Most dual and monotube shocks typically feature a two-stage valving process, the new OME Nitrocharger Sport Long Travel Edition features a triple-stage valving process rivaled only by a remote canister adjustable shock.

These have been stacked into the most durable shock body and adjusted by load capacity for you. And the additional travel makes it one of the few shocks that can take on the flex Metalcloak offers.

Fitting with our soft shock, stiff coil, philosophy, the off-the-shelf valving of the OME shocks have the perfect synergy with our True Dual Rate Coils.
