STORM-8, 2013 Jeep Wrangler 2 Door 2.8 CRD


The Storm Jeeps suspension has been uprated to a ARB Old man Emu Sport system with a 2.5” height increase.

While ride height increases are attained with this kit, emphasis is placed on ride control improvements. Further fine tuning is achieved as the springs are precisely matched to a corresponding set of Old Man Emu shock absorbers, delivering a fully integrated system, designed specifically to suit the Jeep. The spring rate has been specifically engineered for the 2 door diesel variant. Extra weight from aftermarket equipment has been accounted for in the spring rate to ensure the suspension is optimum for the Jeep.

The Old Man Emu JK lift uses the Nitrocharger Sport Shock, the most advanced and innovative 4×4 shock absorber on the market. Designed by a dedicated team of OME engineers through an exhaustive vehicle specific development program, Nitrocharger Sport 4×4 shock absorbers deliver the best control, durability and most comfortable ride over all terrain.

Brake line relocation brackets have been developed to reroute factory brake lines to work with this kits’ extended shock lengths; this relieves stress on brake lines resulting from the higher ride height.

Front sway bar features quick disconnects, allowing for the front sway bar to be disconnected for off road use and increasing suspension articulation.

An Old Man Emu heavy duty steering stabiliser / damper has also been fitted, with increased compression and extension damping performance. This improved performance will assist in the overall ride and control of the JK Wrangler.

Fender Flares

Pocket StyleFender Flares are a Bushwacker original manufactured in the USA. The factory coverage fender flares feature recessed stainless steel bolts and massive presence, they’re custom-designed for the Jeep Wrangler to complement oversized tyres and high-clearance suspension. Matte black finish – they’re UV protected so they won’t fade.

Wheels and Tyres

Huge 20” x 9” Fully cast race proven KMC XD Rockstar 2 alloy wheels with custom painted white spokes and centre cap. The wheels are fitted with aggressive 33” x 12.5” Achilles Desert Hawk X-MT Tyres.

An AEV Procal module has been used to re-calibrate the speedo and gearbox with the oversize tyres.

Side Steps

Smittybilt SRC Side armour utilises a dual girder system provides the ultimate protection for the sides and under section of the Wrangler. SRC Side armour provides protection as well as a step at the same time. Finished in the same matte black textured powder as the front and rear bumpers.


Smittybilt’s all new SRC Gen 2 front and rear bumpers have been engineered to provide the maximum fender to fender protection. Each SRC bumper is made from 3/16” steel construction with two-stage textured matte black finish. Solid plate centre sections (slip strips) are made from UHMW (ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene) and provide the ultimate protection for rock crawling. Bumpers also feature D-ring mounts to recover form those sticky situations.


The factory headlights have been upgraded with Vision X Vortex LED headlights finished in black chrome. Legal and engineered for the UK market the Vortex LED Headlight also comes packed with an extremely powerful high-beam and a wide spread low beam. With such diversity in beam pattern, you can rest assured that you’ll have the right lighting for the right scenario at any time. Equipped with a Halo LED Ring, the headlights feature a bright halo ring that can be active as a day time running light, without the low beam or high beams. Having a 7″ halo on the front of your vehicle will not only turn heads, but also provide you with the optimal lighting options for any situation.

Front fog light have also been upgraded to Vision X Optimus LED units. Neatly integrated into the front bumpers these light are E marked.

JW Speaker LED tail lights offers a one-of-a-kind look incorporating a contoured housing, innovative light blade technology and “blacked out” styling.

19” front bumper light bar by vision X provides a powerful long distance light that can be operated with main beam.


The white and black theme runs throughout the Jeep. The rugged ridge spartan grill with Vortex headlight add aggressive front end styling. No tyre on the back door and JKS tailgate vent gives well finished clean appearance.
