Jeep suspension kit offered for 1 gold coin

A California company that makes aftermarket off-road parts for the Toledo-built Jeep Wrangler is running a promotion in which it’s offering a full suspension kit for a single coin. But don’t get too excited, kids — you’re not likely to find this one in the piggy bank.

Starting today, Metalcloak says it will accept any 1-ounce gold coin in exchange for its Gold Standard Suspension System.

“Off-road enthusiasts are true patriots and they recognize the relationship between gold and liberty," company spokesman Matson Breakey said.

Metalcloak said the kit, which fits 2007 to 2013 Jeep Wranglers, retails for $1,999. The company says it will accept the coins, no matter current market value, through July 4.

On Friday, gold fell about 1.7 percent to $1,388 an ounce.
