JK Wrangler True Dual-Rate Lift Kit, 2.5"/3.5"
Metalcloak Jeep JK Wrangler 3.5" True Dual-Rate Lift Kit


 
The MetalCloak JK Wrangler 3.5" Dual-Rate Lift Kit is the perfect kit for the discerning JK owner looking for a little lift but not planning on extreme off-road conditions.

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. Front Upper Control arms are included in the kit to allow for setting the proper caster angle.

This is an entry-level kit -- a 3.5" 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.

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

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.

JK True Dual-Rate Lift Kit, 2.5”/3.5” May 13, 2018
Reviewer: Alex Hufham from Hoover, AL United States  
First of all, I want to brag about the Metalcloak’s customer support...ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!! I had several questions throughout the process and they were able to answer every question and provide excellent product advice!! Everything with the lift installed pretty easily. I knocked it out over a weekend in my driveway with the help of a couple a buddies. If you’re looking at a very complete kit for a great price, go Metalcloak!!

Just get it! September 30, 2017
Reviewer: Matthew C from Wasilla, AK United States  
I was in the constant dilemma of trying to decide between MC and RK suspensions then once I made the MC decision (best ride/articulation IMO after riding in some buddies jeeps). I was faced with the next decision... spend everything up front for the game changer or get this kit and build to the game changer. I’m very happy I decided to go this route so I could build up to the game changer kit, and the jeep couldn’t ride any smoother even with stock shocks. Everything from MetalCloak’s customer service to their parts are incredible. They won my service after they picked up the phone and gave me more information than any other suspension manufacture I was considering. I’m so glad I went this route and I wouldn’t change it any other way. I opted to pick up the rear brake lines with this kit so I only had to bleed my brakes 1 time. All I need now to build my kit to the game changer is a rear track bar, the 6 remaining control arms, and some better shocks. Install took about 6 1/2- 7 hours.

My new lift December 31, 2016
Reviewer: Kevin M from Bloomfield , NJ United States  
I put in this lift in, in my driveway, by myself. I printed out the directions from the website and it went in just like it should. The only issue I had was with the front track bar, because you have to spread out the bracket on the axle and frame to fit in the new bar, but that's to be almost expected.
