Im really happy how she turned out. All the work was done by me, gears, lift, bumpers, Ford 8.8 disc conversion on my D44. The only thing i had done by a shop was drivelines. BTW Metalcloak set is AWESOME. I would highly recommend them for anyone wanting a strong, good looking set. Customer services a step above the rest.

Heres what she looked like when I picked her up back in Feb 2011. She had been sitting in this spot since late 2003 early 2004. $1700 plus a XJ Dana 44 rear axle.

Pops out of gear. I could be on the freeway going 80mph and boom rear wheels pop out. Then I have to pull over slow to a crawl an shift the rear back in high. Front does the same thing in low ranges.

There good rims, tires are cheap, there customer service.has improved a lot since I bought them back at the end of last year. I started with there Goodyear MT's the work good on everything but snow and deep mud. The oldschool MT/R's tear everything up. Same with the iroks. Kevlars suck on wet rocks. Sidewall are too still the got very little flex I ran them at 5psi. I wound not recommended them for anyone that wheels on big wet rocks.
