JK Wrangler Lift Kit, True Dual-Rate, 2.5"
JK Wrangler Lift Kit 2.5" True Dual-Rate



The MetalCloak JK Wrangler Unlimited (4-Door) 2.5" True Dual-Rate Lift Kit is a well-designed lift kit for the discerning JK owner who wants to get "just enough" lift for a better looking rig, without losing the ride quality that cheaper kits sacrifice.

Designed to use Stock Shocks (or you can choose to add any aftermarket shock).

MetalCloak's True Dual Rate™ Coils are the focus of the kit, providing a more stable ride and better overall ride quality then typical single rate or progressive coils. Upper Front Control arms ensure proper caster angle, eliminating the potential for Death Wobble.

This is an entry-level kit -- a 2.5" lift kit, that gives you lift, unprecedented ride quality, and at an affordable price that allows you to build upon the kit if your ultimate goal is the Game Changer.

Note: This kit requires no more than 5.5" backspacing (or 1.5" spacers on stock wheels).

Note: MetalCloak Recommends You Have a Suspension Specialist Align Your Jeep Once MetalCloak Suspension is Installed.

Dual rate 2.5 December 1, 2013
Reviewer: Jordan Chick from Edmonton, AB Canada  
Great lift painless install, given I was a cerified mechanic. I have to say I was a bit chapped that it was missing a control arm bolt, and was surprised it didn't have a upgrade bolt kits for all control arms and trac bars. I also question the lift height, it looks to be closer to 3 or 3.5 inches.
