I'm running JJ lowers and I'm getting ready to buy upper arms (still have stock uppers). I had been planning to use JJ's on the uppers, but now I'm wondering if the MC's would be a good choice for the uppers to keep NVH at bay.

I have read pretty much the entire thread, but I do know since you have started this thread a lot of other people seem to be giving the cloak arms a try, just want to see what others thoughts are on them. Not trying to hijack your thread though.

Awesome thread btw man some good info you have put together.

They're certainly an awesome product though. Hope y'all get them soon.

I'm also waiting on arms from MC... I emailed last friday asking what was up and they said they're waiting on a batch from the zinc coaters expected this week, apparently they just ran out of stock. Its great that they're that busy, but I would have appreciated an email telling me to expect a delay in shipping.

Also, thanks for the review thread...

Straight from the dog's mouth--they've seen a large increase in demand and are beyond capacity.

Don't freak out if you haven't got your stuff yet. Just be patient.

Yeah, I was just grumbling and giving word for delays... not their fault but I did a flattish belly thinking I'd have new arms in a week-doofus got ahead of himself. I'm sure it'll be worth the wait.

You can all thank (or blame) Imped for the delay... this thread is one of the reasons our TJ arms have taken off more then we expected.

We are definitely sorry for any delay, we are working diligently to get back to our quick turn-around standards.

Feel free to give myself or Will a call to find out the status of your order.

This would be a good problem!

I am ordering lowers to replace my fixed RE's so I will wait a bit.

My only gripe is that a phone call would've been nice, as I got a call they were to ship them and never got them. My current arms are sold and had I of known they were out of stock I would have held off on the sale. Anyways, I'm confident these arms are well worth the wait and I'm very excited to get them on and finally dial in my pinion angle as well as ditch these RE lowers....

Thanks everyone for the team work and bringing us up to speed, it's much appreciated.

I knew this would happen... and its understandable. As soon as Imped gave the thumbs up I pulled the trigger. I experienced no delays and excellent customer service and prompt shipping.
