suspension review

Jeep got plenty of things right when it moved to the Wrangler JK platform in 2007. With better steering, axles and suspension, both the two- and four-door Unlimited models make for an extremely easy-to-build and versatile platform. Recently, we shoehorned on a set of 35x12.50R17 Nitto Ridge Grapplers under our ’13 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. Given the relatively small budget boost it was running, we experienced a fair amount of rubbing from the tires off-road.

We prefer to keep our Jeeps with a low amount of lift for the benefit of maintaining a low center of gravity. The challenge with the JK is often how to balance the ride quality and performance at such a low lift height. Looking to give our 35’s more breathing room and enhance the ride quality, we decided to install a 2.5-inch JKS Suspension System. The JSEPC suspension is ideal for our application, where a modest lift height is sought, but on- and off-road ride quality is extremely important.
