So, you want to know what we're about?
MetalCloak is a company of Game-Changers.
Whether it's our Game-Changing approach to Product Design, our development of the first Bolt-On High-Clearance Production Fenders, our Lifetime Customer Service policy, or our Patented Game-Changing Suspension Technology, everything we do is only worth doing if we can not only do it better, but significantly different then what others expect.
We simply don't settle.
Our greatest asset is you, our customer. If we can't make you happy, we have no reason to be in business.
Originally founded in 2006, as Rev111, we took the Jeeping community by storm with the first and only Arched Tube Fender for the Jeep TJ, achieving High-Line clearance without cutting your stock fenders or hood. Changing our name to MetalCloak in January 2009, we expanded our product line across multiple platforms from CJ-5 - JK -- continuing to gain the most clearance and easiest installation in the industry.
In 2010 we entered the Suspension market with the revolutionary 6Pak Shock System and the Duroflex Joint, the first high-misalignment vibration dampening joint.
At MetalCloak we are a Systems-Based Company. Our philosophy is to develop systems that work incredibly well together, designing every individual part to function and improve that system.
From Computer Aided Design (CAD) of every part, to CNC manufacturing processes, we set a high standard of quality control to ensure that every product will fit your rig the right way every time!
And, of course, MetalCloak is a Certified Made in the USA company.
Here are just some of our product lines that were designed with you in mind...
|Meet the Duroflex Joint. The first Vibration Dampening, Self-Centering, High-Misalignment joint. Born from the desire to give your rig a more comfortable street ride while having all the off road capabilities. (Patent Pending #13/368,570) More>>>|
|The 6Pak Long Travel Shocks have started a revolution in the off road industry. The chance to put a Long Travel shock in stock mounts was the first benefit. Next came a more comfortable ride, less heat generation, and a simplicity that makes it easy to rebuild so it'll last a lifetime. (US Patent 8,714,321) More>>>|
|MetalCloak's Suspension Systems aren't called Game Changers for fun, they have truly changed the way we look at suspensions. Combining Low Center of Gravity builds with unbeatable comfort for on and off road durability and fun... Learn More>> TJ JK|
|Ditomic Armor - The latest in MetalCloak's offering to the Jeep Community, is not just Aluminum Armor. It is the carefully designed combination that provides Aluminum weight savings where you want it, but Steel protection where you need it. More>>>|
|The Arched Tube Fenders continue to lead the industry in quality and functionality by providing the greatest amount of clearance possible without cutting or replacing your hood. Clearance diagrams show that no other tube fender on the market today provides as much clearance as the MetalCloak Arched Tube Fender.|
|The Overline Tube Fenders took the industry by storm - providing a traditional flat fender look with the same extreme clearance of our Arched Tube Fenders. Providing the same removable flare option, the Overlines create a classic finished look, with ruggedly strong construction.|
The Frame-Built Bumper System available for the CJ, YJ, TJ/LJ and JK Wrangler is a revolutionary system providing a uniquely modular build process that is Frame-Built - meaning built around the strongest point on your rig - your frame. You can have a bumper that is as unique as you are.
