    tough to discern from a photo, but that looks like dirt/mud to me.

    Ehh, you might be right, just caught my eye. Something looked off like chipped powder coat/rust. But you might be right.

    The Metal Cloak 2.5 pairs awesome with the Teraflex Falcon shocks. The adjustments ranges from firm and flat to smooth and floaty. Dial in the ride you want for what you are driving. Change it back just as easy.

    I had my 2.5 inch lift installed a couple of weeks ago. Rear ended up being 3 3/4 front was 4 1/2 higher.

    Either metal cloak doesnt know which springs are what or my shop ordered the wrong thing. I have 315's on and they appear way to small. I dont have aftermarket bumpers or winch on yet so the front should go down some.

    The shop claims it will settle in some...we'll see.

    I am not happy that I apparently didnt get what I asked for but I am not asking for new springs either. I'm getting used to the extra room but it'll likely get me to go 37s sooner so I will save money on labor and springs in the long run.

    Performance is stellar. Steering is about the same, a little less precise which is a good thing. The road ride is better in some ways and in another a little stiffer/firmer. Not complaining in the least.

    Off road is pretty darn amazing. I dropped air pressure down to 17 and it floats over stuff, nice to know I can go even lower. On the way home I had a Forest Road race and it is flat out amazing. Part lift and a BIG part ADS suspension. For the money it oughta be. lol

    It REALLY feels good to have a lift finally on this thing. Going off road without fear of hitting trail poo or doing semi extreme climbs puts me back where I needed to be once selling my well set up TJ.

    My shop used to put on any lift the customer wanted but now just does metalcloak. He claims if something is better later he will change and go that route. Good to hear....or maybe he gets a better price point on them. lol

    Marketing really doesn't let us know of any sales until they basically start. That being said, we have traditionally done something for the 4th of July, so I would keep an eye out ;)

    Yes. BTW, the zinc dichromate coating MC uses is awesome. Initially the paint wouldn't' stick. Used a scotchbrite pad to give the surface some tooth. Didn't sand through the coating to bare steel, just roughed it up some. Has held up great. Had considered powder coating but would have had to break down all the joints. Am happy with how it turned out.

    Nice, those are 37s on your Jeep? Been considering moving from my Mopar springs and falcon shocks MC and Rocksport.
