We've refined the RockSport Shocks compression and dampening to provide stable, yet compliant manners for daily driving and in situations where Long Travel articulation is needed to keep your tires planted on the ground.

MetalCloak JK Wrangler True Dual Rate™ Coils have one of the longest free length in the industry for greater articulation without sacrificing the OEM ride quality.

Without the advantage of the Dual Rate Design, the required Spring Rate would be too low and "squishy" -- just loading your Jeep up with supplies would affect ride height and quality.

High Quality Product at Reasonable Price Point February 23, 2017
Reviewer: Brian H from Annapolis, MD United States  
Extremely satisfied with this system.  Components are machined with clean welds and milling and solid construction.  Engineering of components to fit stock frame so well with minimal drilling and no welding/cutting is impressive.  Instructions were pretty clear.  Package specific instructions would be nice to take some of the guesswork out of making sure components were being installed correctly more my specific package, but it wasn't hard to figure out.

great product, quality and customer service December 22, 2016
Reviewer: Benjamin Leal from Carrollton, TX United States  
My jeep buddy referred me to MetalCloak and once i settled on this kit, ordering was a breeze.  Customer service called me to let me know they had my order and to see if i had any questions.
My buddies and i got the kit installed in one day and didn't have any issues.
The ride quality is great and I'm surprised at how much of a difference in height 2.5" makes.
My one quibble is that the instructions aren't included in the kit.  So i had download them from the site but the ones i downloaded were "2.5"-3.5" Dual-Rate Lift Kit" but the ones i actually needed were "2.5"-3.5" Dual Rate Lift Kit Fox Edition". The reason is the instructions that match my kit, covers reusing the old shocks referred extensions i didn't have instructions for the front shock relocation mounts.

Overall I'm happy and would recommend.

Worth Every Penny October 24, 2016
Reviewer: Merritt from Urbana, OH United States  
I recently moved from a CJ7 to a JKUR.  I wheel a lot and this kit looked to have the most flex possible but still have road manners since my new JK is my daily driver.  This kit has exceeded my expectations both on and off road.  On road it handles better than stock.  Off road this thing walks through trails that most of the guys in my club have issues with.  I am extremely happy with this kit and will be adding control arms to upgrade this to a complete game changer as my budget allows it.

Awesome October 12, 2016
Reviewer: Josh Davis from Pinedale, WY United States  
My Jeep looks and rides great. I Have friends that have bought cheaper lifts and said that I shouldn't "waste my money"with metalcloak. They were so wrong. My rig not only flexes and tears up the trail with the best of them but also feels solid going 85mph on the interstate in a strong wind. Their lifts are squirrly at high speed and frankly scare the hell out of me even though they are decent off road.
I installed the lift myself with little trouble then I had my local shop align it all and double check my work. They were impressed by the kit and said they have had full size trucks on the rack that didn't have control arms as beefy as my new ones. All around I'm super pleased and my friends are impressed as well.
