I have been promised Friday morning (tomorrow). I apologize for the delay but you would not be happy with the quality of our first 2 runs. This process has been very difficult to get right. We can ship you the stainless steel hardware kit now if you want.

Installed the new Metalcloak light bar today; man, this thing is great! It's got really solid recovery points which mount to all 8 front bolts for those who don't have the frame-mounted points, and the light bar itself is light and does the job admirably. There are more pics over on my Metalcloak Bumper Review, but here are some other pics.





Another fine product from Metalcloak! Should be available on the site in the next few weeks. Great job guys!

So many of you are thinking it and more will say it... FINALLY!

Yes, here are the long awaited Grill Guard / Hoop Combinations for the MetalCloak TJ/LJ/YJ Frame-Built Bumper.

The New Mid Stinger (20" from the base and positions at 60 degrees for better forward stability if you were to land on it)


The New Full Stinger (26" from the base and positioned at 60 degrees for better forward stability)


The Mid Stinger Grill Guard


The Full Stinger Grill Guard



The Grill Guards follow a unique design coming off of the mounting point of the forward hoop and coming back and at an angle supported by the rugged mounting bracket.

More details on each of the hoops above our posted on our website:

Order Your Own TJ/LJ/YJ Frame-Built Modular Bumper

Just click on the hoop of your choice to see other views and more specific information.

We look forward, as always , to your feedback!

I can tell you this is one strong *** bumper cause I landed directly on it and would have definitely gone end over end if it hadn't been there...

Any chance of a "Mid length" cap set, I don't want a stubby or crawler, but 52" is a bit long, any chance of there being say a 48" 49" or even 50" length cap set?

Secondly, are there any light tabs on the winch guard hoop? If not, can there be?

And finally, anything new on the steering skid, and license plate brackets?

It looks like I might be doing MetalCloak on my current jeep after all, but I want to make sure everything is perfect first.

Thanks

P.S.
You mentioned that MetalCloak has black roller fairleads for sale on the site, but I can't seem to find them. Thanks again

No... at this stage our 36" stubby, 46" crawler and 52" slider are the only options we have as part of the hundreds of builds available with the Frame Built bumper system

Currently light tabs are not offered. Though there may be option in the future. Some customers have welded tabs on their own and used rustoleum black textured paint to match up the powdercoating.

The steering plate and license plate brackets are coming soon.

Also, we offer a black roller fairlead bracket but not a black roller fairlead.

Thanks for all the great questions!
