Anyone using 6in metal cloak coils?

Im at 4.5in of lift, like to get to 5.5, and Id like to try these metal cloak coils. They only make a 6in coil for the TJ. Anyone using these? Did they net under 6? I have a smittybilt bumper with a steel cable winch so it will def compress a tad. Just wondering what other people are seeing. Thanks!

ACOS and metal cloak 3.5 coils work great for me at 6 " lift, plus i can fine tune it side to side.

Re: Anyone using 6in metal cloak coils?

I have been running the 6" TJ MetalCloak coils for 4 years now. I did lose 1" of lift from the previous 6" Skyjacker coils, but the Metalcloak sit at a true 6" over stock ride height.

The only issue I had is they are a TJ coil and do not wrap tight around the XJ upper coil mount. This allows them to move around up top unless you can secure them somehow. I tack welded on some added steel to close the upper coil diameter to keep them centered.
