    MetalCloak 4 Link Long Arm

    Well the 4 link version has finally arrived. This is a great upgrade option for the off-roader that does not want to get out and turn the lock-n-load arm and the added security of upper control arms. With this kit, it will need some welding for the upper control arms. All other parts are all bolt on as usual. The rear will still utilize the DB3 brackets. Despite what most folks are saying, outside of double triangulated this will give you the most ground clearance in front of the tire. I would encourage all of you to check out the graphics on these brackets, truly a "Game Changer".

    I am curious if the upper control arm brackets will interfere with the Metalcloak skid system. What are your thougths?

    This next week most of the individual components will go live. Just give the shop a call and they can work out what parts you need to upgrade.

    I may upgrade my front arms for the 4-link setup. Not sure i like the drop bracket for the rear. Genright offers a gas tank similar to the TJ design that allows a true 4-link in the rear. I may use the genright rear arms and metalcloak fronts...

    Would you double triangulate the rear?

    So far the reviews on the rear drop bracket from DIE HARD long arm users has been phenomenal... for both high-speed on and off road usage to off road rock crawling, the DB3 is getting rave reviews. You might consider trying it before going through all the expense of relocating the gas tank.
