    Any word on the progress or potential timeframe for the release of the 2 door lift kits?

    Right there with you. I'm really interested in Metalcloak's rock rails too, but no word on when they will be ready either. The only response I got was that "2019 will be an exciting year". I understand it takes time with R&D and production, but the snails pace of just about everything from just about every vendor for the 2-Doors is frustrating!

    Unfortunately, I think out of all JL's sold last year only about 20% were 2 doors, from a manufacturing/business perspective I totally understand why they choose to focus primarily on the JLU. I would not be shocked if the Jeep that replaces the JL down the road isn't even offered in a 2 door version.

    Rock Krawler. JKS and Mopar all have 2dr specific springs lifts. Could also go with a spacer lift, a few of them available too.

    Sorry, I haven't checked here in a bit. We are working on the 2 door coils and should have them soon. They are going to be different from the 4 door stuff.

    @CloakedWillys just noticed on the Metalcloak website that the 2dr lifts have been announced. I'm particularly interested in the 2.5" kit, what shock lengths do you recommend?
