Giving this Jeep the stance it deserves is achieved by lifting it 2.5” using a high end Teraflex Sport ST2 suspension system with Falcon 2.1 Shocks.
Developed for the Jeep enthusiast looking for a stable highway commute and comfortable trail performance, the 2.5” Sport ST2 Suspension System features front lower Sport Flexarms and Falcon Progressive Bump Stops. The preset Sport Flexarms optimize steering geometry for improved highway handling. The additional lift height clears larger diameter tyres without compromising on- and off-road stability.
Falcon shock absorbers and TeraFlex lift coil springs have been engineered together to improve both compression and rebound for optimal vehicle stability. These Jeep-specific shock absorbers deliver increased stability, improved ride quality, and comfort for daily driven vehicles as well as race-inspired performance, handling, and stability for off-road rigs.
We have cleared room for huge 37” tyres with only a 2.5” suspension lift. This has been achieve by combining the Teraflex 2.5” suspension lift with Mopar high top fenders which create an additional 2” clearance for the tyre within the fender flares. This lower lift height / high fender combination creates a lower centre of gravity for both on-road comfort and off-road performance in comparison to larger suspension lifts.
The 37×12.5“General Grabber X3 tyres are fitted to 17 × 8.5” Rugged Ridge XHD Hub Centric wheels.
The Rubicon is equipped with the gear you need to take on the trails. Tru-Lok front and rear electronic locking differentials lock power and distribute it evenly between the wheels for ultimate traction during low-speed rock crawling. Pushing the dashboard-mounted sway bar button disconnects the sway bar and allows your front wheels to drop and compress, improving articulation. A heavy-duty 4:1 low-range transfer case delivers outstanding torque and low-speed control for impressive off-road performance. The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is also equipped with front and rear Dana 44 axles. The axles are beefed up with thicker tubes and forgings for superior strength, rigidity and durability.
The Rugged Ridge Arcus stubby recovery bumper features 1-inch thick recovery hooks cross-drilled so they accept both 7/8 and 3/4 inch D-rings. Clever recesses in the bumper offer direct frame access for effective lifting of the Jeep with a hi-lift jack. The bumper accommodates a hoop with Rugged Ridge LED cube lights, LED fog lights and the winch plate mounts a Rugged Ridge Trekker 12000lbs winch with synthetic rope which has been placed lower for greater airflow to the radiator.
Rear Rugged Ridge recovery bumper also features 3/4 inch D-rings, Hi-Lift jacking points and parking sensors. The numberplate has relocated out of harms way and HD Rugged Ridge tyre carrier is callable of handling the huge 37” spare with rear view camera integration.
