For our final day at the 2007 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, we decided to head out to the proving grounds and take a spin on Off Road Evolution's bad ass Full Traction Suspension long arm lifted and highly modified Jeep JK Wrangler Sahara. Let me tell you, this thing was sitting on Pro Rocks, Superior Chromoly Axles, Superior 5.13 Gears, 35 Spline Dana 44 Rear, OX U-Joints, 40" Toyo M/T's, Ultra 20" Wheels, Allied Bead Locks, Staun Internal Beadlocks, 12" Coilover, Air Bumps, JE Reel Drive Shafts, had MasterCraft Seats front and rear inside and was covered with a Wild Boar Fast Back Hard Top and Xenon Fender Flares. Let me tell you, this thing had an insane amount of crazy flex, was a blast to ride in and a hell of a lot of fun to watch.

The 2007 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada is finally underway and Project-JK is here live to bring you the all the hottest news and information that you're going to want to know about. On Monday, September 29th, Mopar held an exclusive press conference called the Trail Initiative where they announced some really big news - they will now be selling a 4.5" long arm kit under the branding Jeep Off Road Technology or ORT for short. And more specifically, this lift kit will be a repackaged Rubicon Express 4.5" long arm kit. And, in addition to getting involved in the aftermarket suspension industry, Mopar will also develop other performance products such as transfer case upgrades, performance axles and air intake systems. Special thanks goes to Capture Live for making our daily coverage of SEMA possible.
BIG NEWS EVERYONE!! For all those people who've been leary about installing a lift kit on their Jeep JK Wrangler or were told by their dealership that they could not exceed a 2" of lift because anything more would void their warranty, have I got news for you. I just got out of an exclusive MOPAR press conference entiteled 'Trail' Initiative and was informed that MOPAR itself will now be selling not just a lift kit for the very first time in its long history, but a 4.5" long arm kit at that!!
Well, I'll be honest and tell you that I did have my doubts as to whether or not we would be able to have our Jeep JK Wrangler finished in time for the 2007 SEMA Show.
Without a doubt, the SEMA Show that takes place every year in Las Vegas, Nevada is by far the granddaddy of all automotive aftermarket shows, bar none. It truly is a who's who event where you can be sure to see all the hottest products being released for just about every vehicle made and catch a glimpse of things to come.
