2-inch lift kit for Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator now available
Jeep wants to make it easier for customers to install suspension upgrades on their Wranglers and Gladiator pickup trucks. With help from Mopar, the automaker revealed the upgraded Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) 2-inch lift kit with specially-tuned Bilstein shocks.
That's right, the new 2-inch suspension lift kit now comes with 46mm monotube shocks with remote reservoirs from Bilstein for better performance and ride. The new Bilstein shocks complement the increased ground clearance and larger wheels by offering consistent performance in all conditions. It also has self-adjusting, deflective-disc valves that react instantly to surface changes for better control.
The Bilstein shocks remote reservoirs are designed to better dissipate heat while under heavy use. Meanwhile, a unique swivel banjo fitting allows 360-degree rotation for the flex hose for direct fitment while also protecting the oil line from contact.
“Our Jeep Performance Parts team at Mopar is always looking for innovative ways to improve performance for off-road enthusiasts. With more than 500 quality-tested, factory-backed performance parts and accessories across the Jeep lineup, our customers win with new options to upgrade and personalize their vehicles,” said Mike Koval, head of Mopar North America.
The new JPP 2-inch lift kit comes with four springs, four Bilstein shocks, front lower control arms, front and rear stabilizer links, front and rear bump stops, assorted fasteners, and the JPP badge. The new bolt-on JPP lift kit can easily be installed in stock mounting locations with no extra drilling needed.
“We can’t wait for our Jeep off-road community to experience the new Jeep Performance Parts lift kit with Bilstein shocks on Wrangler and Gladiator this summer. There is nothing quite like legendary Jeep 4x4 capability for enthusiasts who want to tackle the toughest terrains,” added Jim Morrison, senior vice president and head of Jeep brand North America.
The new JPP 2-inch lift kit is available for the 2018 model-year and newer Jeep Wranglers (JL) and 2020 model-year and newer Jeep Gladiators (JT). The suggested retail price of the new suspension lift kit is USD 2,095 or around PHP 114,097.
