JK Wrangler Game-Changer Suspension 4.5", Hi-Steer, RockSport Edition


 
The MetalCloak JK Wrangler 4.5" Game Changer Hi Steer Suspension System, RockSport Edition, features the New RockSport Long Travel Shocks shock absorbers and Hi Steer Kit!

This system includes our True Dual Rate™ Coils that provide a more comfortable ride than traditional single rate lift springs and feature better load handling stability than your typical "progressive" coils.

This is not an entry-level kit; this is a complete 4.5" suspension system that gives unprecedented ride quality at a more affordable price than our Game Changer 6Pak Edition. The system includes 2 patented technologies; the Duroflex and Durotrak™ bushings for the best (NVH) vibration handling available for the smoothest ride (metalcloakpatents.com).

Now made with DuPont™ Kevlar® fiber - the first suspension components manufactured with Kevlar® for industry leading durability.

As leaders in the off-road industry MetalCloak knows what it takes to make a great suspension system. Our Engineers worked tirelessly to fine tune the New RockSport Long Travel Shocks for another great option to be used with the Dual-Rate Suspension product line.

Note: All 2012+ JK Wrangler will require exhaust spacers (7078) for clearance for the front drive shaft.

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

Note: MetalCloak does not recommend powder coating your True Dual Rate Coils. See instructions for additional details.

WHAT ARE TRUE DUAL RATE ™ COILS?

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.

Awesome Lift May 18, 2018
Reviewer: David Warren from JACKSONVILLE, FL United States  
Had my local Jeep shop install the Metalcloak Game-Changer 4.5", Hi-Steer, Rocksport Edition Lift and I am very Impressed! My local Jeep shop told me that they are promoting more Metalcloak lifts because of their excellent engineering design, on & off road performance and ease of installation!    Very nice product. Everything works well and the Rocksport shocks are way better than I thought they were going to be. Better than my brothers Fox shocks. I know all about the Gold coating as it has been used in the telecommunications central  offices and Data Center offices for supporting their equipment for years. Great protection from the elements.Good Job Metalcloak!

Went from 3in BDS with Fox Shocks to the 4.5in Game-Changer Rocksport Edition.     Couldn't be happier twice as much articulation and smooth as silk on road.  The ride is better than stock!

Gamechanger 4 1/2" June 12, 2017
Reviewer: Clifford Zwiercan from Reinholds, PA United States  
Had difficulty getting the Jeep drivable after installation. Had to install drop brackets in the front and that took care of the death wobble immediately. I don't think it is any fault of Metalcloak but me not setting it up properly (alignment for lifted vehicle). Took it off road and it performed well. A bit noisy at first until I'm guessing it started to settle in. Would definitely purchase again but I think I would leave the install to someone who has the ability to set it up correctly.

All the parts came right when the tracking number informed me it would arrive. Shocks were on back order so took a few more weeks to arrive. The wait was worth it. All the parts looked well fabricated. Thank you MetalCloak!
