Jeep announces suspension lift kit for Wrangler SUV and Gladiator pickup

July 31, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The American automaker said that a suspension lift could soon be ordered for the Wrangler SUV and the Gladiator pickup. The kit, which consists of Fox shocks, levers and rods, costs $ 1,495.

The Italian-American concern FCA, and in particular its divisions Mopar and Jeep Performance Parts (JPP), which supply original parts and accessories for the brand’s models, plans to significantly improve the off-road capabilities of the Wrangler SUV and the Gladiator pickup. An official factory suspension lift will be released for these models. Most importantly, this upgrade will be covered by an official warranty.

There is one problem though. The factory “lift” kit is only for Jeep models with the EcoDiesel diesel engine family.

The lift kit includes four Fox shocks, front lower control arms, front and rear stabilizer links, front and rear bumpers, assorted fasteners and a JPP badge. They are packed in a wooden box with Jeep branding.

Needless to say, the lift kit increases the off-road capability of both vehicles by increasing the suspension articulation by 18%. Fox aluminum monotube shocks are tuned for increased off-road lift capacity, while the springs are specially tuned to work in diesel vehicles. The front lower control arms are longer than standard and heavy-duty bushings provide improved vehicle handling and help with the suspension articulation.

The JPP Wrangler Lift Kit is already available for purchase, but the JPP Gladiator will be available to order by the end of the summer. Both kits come with a price tag of $ 1,495 and are warranted for two years / unlimited miles or up to the remaining new car warranty.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that Jeep is preparing an “anniversary” edition of the Grand Cherokee SUV. The American automaker will offer customers a special edition of the legendary SUV called 80th Anniversary. It was created in honor of the 80th anniversary of the Jeep brand.
