    JK Lift kit

    I initially was not going to purchase a lift kit until black Friday. However, metal cloak is running a 10% off sale and free shipping until 6 pm today. Their 2.5" gamechanger lift kit would be about $2300 with rocksport shocks. Now, the other option is to buy the 2.5" teraflex kit from Allen off Roads with front swaybar disconnects, front yeti track bar, exhaust spacer, a full set of core4x4 tier 3 control arms, and fox remote resi shocks for $2500. Also, this is mostly a daily driver and off-road warrior about 12 times a year to places like Rausch creek and AOAA.

    Do you guys think there are better deals to be had come black Friday, or should I bite the bullet and purchase the metal cloak lift now?

    Thanks in advance for any advice provided!

    If it were me, I would wait until Black Friday when reputable companies also have deals on the table.

    I thought metalcloak was considered one of the best 2.5" kits on the market, am I wrong? I am aware of Rock Krawler and EVO being other options, however EVO did not impress me when looking at their website.

    Buying Jeep parts based on marketing and how cool their website is - solid plan

    Edit: Non-sarcastic answer: Spend waaaay more time researching before you buy your lift. Or save yourself a lot of grief and call Bubba at Exodus Jeeps.

    Apologies, let me rephrase that. I've done some research on EVO, and most agree that it is a very good on-road kit that is also decent offroad. I did not think this kit was right for my kind of riding, however, I am not set in stone and appreciate any insight you can give me into this! They have very attractive prices.

    Edit: Haha, I was writing this post while you were editing yours. I will definitely give Bubba a call while continuing to research. Thanks!

    I had Metalcloak and would never buy their crap again, garbage. Get yourself the Evo Enforcer and be happy your getting a quality lift that will absolutely out perform the Metalcrap.

    Ahh, I just realized my mistake. I was talking about AEV, not EVO. My mistake just wanted to clear that up.

    That makes sense. Cant go wrong with the EVO lift. One of the better riding lifts out there.

    Give JKS a look, their lift kits are very well put together (except for whomever the fuck though putting 2" bumpstops on their 3.5 inch lifts was a good idea...) and I'm very happy with the setup.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
