Rancho RS 9000X Pro Series Remote Reservoir Shocks

May 9, 2008 Cindy 3
When it comes to off-road performance shocks, few companies have the history and outstanding reputation that Rancho has been able to create for itself over the last 50 years. Needless to say, when it came time for me to start looking for a new set of extended shocks to go with the 4.5" of lift that I now have on my Jeep JK Wrangler, Rancho was the first company I turned to for help.

JKS Sway Bar Link Quick Disconnects Installation

February 4, 2008 wayoflife 48
Disconnecting your front sway bar links is something that Jeep owners have been doing for years as it allows your axle to have significantly more articulation. And, more articulation means you will be able to keep all four of your tires on the ground more often than not and this will ultimately provide greater stability and traction on the trail.

If you’re looking to give your Jeep JK Wrangler a 2" lift and have no plans of ever going taller in the future, there’s only one true suspension lift kit you should consider and that is the one made by Old Man Emu.

One of the easiest and single best things you can do to improve the performance of your Jeep JK Wrangler on the trail is to disconnect your front sway bar links. By doing this, you free up your front axle to have a significantly greater range of articulation or what Jeepers often refer to as ‘flex’. And, when you can maintain all four on the floor, you inherently gain more stability and traction, both of which will improve your Jeep’s ability on technical terrain.

AIR LIFT 1000 Air Springs Installation Write-Up

As much as I love doing short day trips up hard core trails, I have to say that my real love for Jeeps comes from the fact that they allow me to see and explore all the wonderful places this great country has to offer. And, when you load up your Jeep as much as I do to go on multi-day wheeling/camping trip with the entire family, the rear end of your Jeep JK Wrangler will sag considerably and in some cases, measurably enough to be an issue on and off the trail. Certainly, on the trail, sagging will cause a loss of ground clearance and on pavement, sagging will cause your head light beams to shine high and into the eyes of on coming traffic. So how does one go about solving a problem like this? Install a set of Air Lift 1000 air springs.

Truly, there are few 3" lift kits available on the market today for the Jeep JK Wrangler that are as complete and well made as the Full Traction Suspension 3" Ultimate Lift. Made here in the USA, this lift kit comes with 3" taller coils, adjustable lower and upper control arms, adjustable front and rear track bars, bump stop extensions, brake line relocation brackets, new longer sway bar links for the rear and sway bar link disconnects up front for X and Sahara model JK’s. In essence, you get EVERYTHING you need to dial in your ride as these components will allow you to reposition and center your axles under your Jeep, set your rear pinion angle (if you have an aftermarket drive shaft) and set your caster angle to where it needs to be after lifting your Jeep and installing bigger tires.

Full Traction Suspension Jeep JK Wrangler Adjustable Front Track Bar Installation Write-Up

March 2, 2007 wayoflife 21
When you lift a Jeep JK Wrangler 3" or more, you really need to do more than just pop in a set of taller coils if you hope to maintain a good ride quality and handling. At the very least, you really need to address the shift in your axles by adjusting your track bars. And, while a track bar relocation bracket is a great solution for the rear, I would highly recommend the installation of a good replacement heavy duty adjustable unit up front like the kind Full Traction Suspension makes.
