WHY ARE WE THE BEST? IT STARTS WITH THE SHOCKS

The design of the 6Pak didn't just revolutionize shocks, it changed the
suspension game forever. The shock is no longer the limiting factor in your build.

The MetalCloak 6Pak™ (US Patent 8,714,321) provides the longest shock travel relative to a compressed length for any off-road shock ever built in history, period.

MetalCloak's Long-Travel Shock Technology provides a game-changing platform featuring parallel shafts extending from a floating body, centralized by dual opposing reservoirs; this revolutionary feature allows for twice the usual stoke over typical industry shocks.

Now the problems of low-hanging shocks or limited travel because of your shock body are fully and completely eliminated.

Reviewer: Allen Watson from Lithia, FL United States  
I haven’t had the best of conditions to test this system. However, what I have gone trough the down force provided by the six-pac shock is amazing. The articulation is great and the ride comfort is unbeatable
