Mopar Offers Parts to Build a Jacked-Up Jeep
Owners of late model Wranglers and Gladiators can now jack their rides skyward courtesy of a new kit from the official Jeep Performance Parts catalog.
Hey, it beats sketchy wooden logs and some hockey pucks.
The kit includes Bilstein-branded monotube shocks with remote reservoirs, increasing oil capacity of the suspenders for greater heat dissipation. In plain English, that means drivers can beat on these things over dunes and rocks without having to worry about performance degradation causing their spines to be hammered into a fine powder.
Included in the lift kit are four springs, a quartet of those remote reservoir Bilstein shocks, front lower control arms, front and rear stabilizer links, plus new front and rear bump stops. The whole thing lifts the vehicle a couple of inches and, since this is Stellantis we’re talking about, comes packed in a reusable wooden crate festooned with Jeep Performance Parts branding. Someone must’ve found a cache of empty Demon crates behind the warehouse.
The kit is good for JL Wranglers (2018+), with the number of doors mattering not, across all powertrains including the psychotic 6.4L V8 Hemi. A stock Wrangler 392 is tough enough to tame as it is (keep those front wheels straight before nailing the throttle, mmmkay?), so we can only imagine how an extra two inches of lift will play with those physics. Meanwhile, anyone with the keys to a JT Gladiator (2020+) can also avail themselves of this lift kit.
Price checks in at $2,095, which is a lot more than a few old hockey pucks but at least you know this kit has been designed and tested by people who know what they’re doing.
