Celebrating Freedom with Free Shipping!

This weekend we are celebrating America's Independence, celebrating the choice by our Founding Fathers to risk heir wealth, their families, and their own lives for the choice of Freedom. 
This choice for Freedom was not the first in our world's history -- but their Declaration, and the Nation that followed, has set an example for billions to embrace.

From our team of Freedom loving Jeepers at Metalcloak to all our Freedom loving friends around the world... Let Freedom Ring!

Metalcloak eNews: RockSport Shocks, Hardline Fenders & More!

Welcome to the new format for our weekly (mostly) newsletters. I hope you like it!
 
As you know, we've been extremely busy improving our delivery times and developing new products and I wanted to share a couple of them here with you now, including the official introduction of the new Hardline Fenders for the JK Wrangler and our exclusive RockSport Long Travel Shocks.

And of course, 4th of July is just around the corner (my personal favorite time of year) and I hope you are all planning some awesome Jeeping and family time this weekend.

And then there is Modern Jeeper... read more below.

Introducing the Hardline Fenders by Metalcloak
 
Metalcloak has set the standard in precision engineering & manufacturing of our fenders. From tangent lines to the perfect fit, the new Hardline Fenders require no finish work to "smooth" out the rough edges, they look good right out of the box...

Precision Designed and Precision Fit. Period.

Another Shock Option from Metalcloak?
Sure, why not?

Last week we received our first shipment of RockSport Long Travel Shocks for the JK Wrangler. Metalcloak is the exclusive importer of the RockSports (yes, sorry, they are not Made in USA). Similar to the tried and true Old Man Emu in travel and valving the RockSports have been designed to provide one more option, one that might be a little more budget friendly.

Look for the RockSports (front / rear) to be paired with several of our kits including the new Overland series. 

Are You A Modern Jeeper?
 
Along with everything else we like to do around here, we decided we should also create an online magazine. (I know, right?) Introducing ModernJeeper.com (facebook / website) - covering everything from Lifestyle to Events to Industry News to Off Road Racing to Land Use, Modern Jeeper is about sharing our mutual passion for everything Jeeping.

BTW, article submissions are welcome, email modernjeeper@yahoo.com.

What do the Army, Elvis and Tulsa, OK, have in common?

What do an Army Base, Elvis and Tulsa, Oklahoma have in common?

That's easy... they are all on the list of the next stops for #CTITour2015!

Corey just finished visiting three amazing shops on his way from Colorado to Unlimited Off Road Expo (Facebook | Website) in Louisville, Kentucky, and we will be doing CTI's there for the next couple days - in fact, I fly out tonight on a red eye, so I hope to see you there!

On Monday, June 8, the #CTITour2015 continues with our first stop at Air Assault Auto Parts on Ft. Campbell. Yes, ON the base! How cool is that?!?! (See below for how you can join us on base).

On Tuesday, June 9, we will head to Memphis, Tenessee, and after driving by Graceland, we will stop at Hypertech where our friends will be hosting the next stop along with members of MidSouth Jeep Club.

And finally, on Wednesday, June 10, our final stop on this tour will be Sam's Off Road Equipment in Tulsa, Oklahoma, which might very well be the biggest, non-event stop, yet thanks to our friends in JeepersAnonymous.

So check out the details below and I hope we'll see you soon!

Cheers,

Matson

Overland Expo, New Swag and the Pic of the Week!

We expect to have a refreshing, if cold, weekend in Northern Arizona. Refreshing because we will be attending the Overland Expo outside Flagstaff Arizona.

Don't get me wrong, we love Rock Crawling, but we also love living the adventure, exploring, camping out in the middle of the Mojave. Basically, we love Overlanding almost as much as wheeling the Rubicon.

So, through rain and snow, we will be hanging out with our yellow 4 door (Cloak 5) equipped with a Ripp Supercharger, KargoMaster prototype rack, ARB Tent and Canopy, Powertank, Warn Winch and Raceline Wheels. Look for the guys on the road as they land in Northern Arizona.

Cheers!

Matson

P.S. Check out our full list of events for 2015 here.

IF YOU MISSED THE STAMPEDE, YOU CAN STILL GET THE SHIRT!

The Metalcloak Ultra4 Stampede is truly "Carnage Unleashed" and you can commemorate it with this limited edition tee.

Printed on Port & Company 50/50 Soft Blend shirt with discharge "infused" inks, this shirt feels more like something from a high end retailer then an event shirt.

Featuring 2014's Metalcloak Stampede winner Tom Wayes, the stylish shirt was such a hit at Stampede this year, we decided to offer it to the rest of the Ultra4 Fans!

Only $18.

NEW PRODUCT: Durotrak Joints

Every good company likes to remain relevant by creating new producst, but at Metalcloak we never stop improving already existing products.

And while you, our friends, have raved about our track bars over the years, we weren't really happy with using stock-style clevite bushings.

Introducing the Patent Pending (#14/622,350) Durotrak(TM) Joint. The Durotrak is composed of two halves that screw together and uses force from where the two halves meet to keep it secure.

You can read more about its' NVH isolating ability and subsequent improvement of ride handling, here.

CONGRATULATIONS to our own Corey Osborne for capturing this sequence of photos at the Metalcloak Stampede and turning it into a Gif. (You know I had to share it!) What you see here friends is the always amazing Shannon Campbell in another incredible recovery. What this gif does not show is the additional excitement he displayed for the crowd when he almost endo'd at the double jump just a few seconds later. We'd love to see more gifs, so keep them coming!
