As you probably already know, King of the Hammers was another amazing, daring, surprising, thrilling race! This year it was even better for the viewers with a huge JumboTron showing the 160 miles of desert racing live in HammerTown.
If you watched it online, the feed you were getting was the same feed we got in HammerTown from the JumboTron. Very impressive.
Just as impressive, at least to those who are biased like me, is the great response to our growing line of suspension products.
The four options on our JK Wrangler suspension kits give you a choice between a basic Lift Kit, the Full Package without the 6Paks, the Full Package without the Control Arms, or the Game Changer itself... the full complete awesome kit that is getting rave reviews all over the web.
Similar packages will be coming for the TJ/LJ and we already have YJ and CJ owners sporting the 6Paks and loving the results.
This week I want to share some more details about our Patent Pending Joint, the Duroflex, and an update on the CA4WD raffle Jeep that SOME of you have a great chance to win...
The Duroflex Joint...
When we decided to enter the field of suspension systems, we approached it with the same driving force that has brought so many Game-Changing products and standards from Metalcloak.
The first step was the 6Pak shocks, proving the most travel relative to its compact size, which led to the development of the Dual Rate coils giving the most free length of any relative size coils, which led to the develop of the Duroflex joint allowing our control arms to take advantage of all that travel.
Why the Duroflex? Well this diagram from our website says is all...
We took the best features of the most widely used control arm joints and combine those features to create the Duroflex Joint, producing a Vibration Dampening, High-Misalignment (34˚), Self-Centering, Rebuildable Joint with an OEM quality ride.
What does this mean?
It means that a lifted Jeep no longer has to be a lousy ride on the road. It means that you can take your Jeep or other project rig, install our joints on your control arms (or buy our arms) and IMMEDIATELY improve the ride ON and OFF road.
And they LAST! We've put them on our JK over a year ago and have easily put over 10,000 miles of both blacktop (Road & Highway) and dirt (Death Valley & the Rubicon) on it and there has been NO visible signs of wear.
I am not sure how long they will last, but they are definitely lasting longer then your typical Johnny Joint style bushings.
In fact, if you are one of the thousands who replace the bushing in the JJ each year, we also provide a Johnny Joint Rebuild Kit.Learn more about this High-Misalignment, Vibration Dampening, Fully Rebuildable Joint Here.
Why You May Win A 2011 JK Rubicon...
As you may know, each year the California Association of 4WD Clubs (CA4WD) gives away a raffle jeep. This is a very successful fundraising campaign for them and an exciting time for the winner.
The give away the Jeep every year at their Annual Convention. This year the Jeep is a 2011 JK 2-Door Rubicon. Not only does it feature our JK Hi-Clearance Overline fenders and body armor, it has a lot of other goodies from manufacturers all over.
But how can you win it? Buy raffle tickets of course!
However... if you put in an order with Metalcloak between November 1, 2011 and December 31, 2011 whose amount was over $100, then we bought a raffle ticket for you.
For who? For you! That's right... you are automatically entered to win a 2011 Mango Tango Rubicon 2 Door JK with Metalcloak Fenders and a whole lot more.
When is the drawing? The night of Saturday, February 25, during the annual dinner where clubs across the state are recognized for their community service and work.
So stand by the phones. If you put an order in the last two months of 2012, your name could very well be called (yes they will call you that night if you win and put you on live speaker phone.
PIC OF THE WEEK...Our Good Buddy Jeremiah Tompkins of HikeBikeDrive submitted this great pic of his 2 Door JK Wrangler with an awesome body matched paint jog on the fenders. You can find more pics of Jeep lovers everywhere on our wall at Facebook.com/metalcloak
