Lower control arms May 11, 2017
Reviewer: andrew Martin from columbus, OH United States  
The product is badass and heavy duty.  Better than I expected and to top it all off, the customer service was top notch. A rep called to confirm my order and shipping. I can't remember another company who has paid that much attention.

Finishing out the lift my Jeep deserves March 16, 2017
Reviewer: Scott Zero from San Antonio, TX United States  
I started this Jeep sooner than intended. When I started looking for lifts for my JK I was more than surprised how many were available.  Having built a rock crawler TJX I knew a thing or two. My shop herein San Antonio is a dealer of a number of lifts. He was glad to seem me choose the Metalcloak.
I will say that I wanted the Game Changer but would have to pace myself with the build. He suggested the Gold Standard as an affordable start with upgrades to follow. These front lower control arms are the real start. The difference in the flex and ride could not of been more obvious.  It makes it all the more obvious that the uppers and lowers have to be added soon too. Then it's just a matter of tuning.
