One of the aspects of the Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator that make them so popular is the ability to outfit them with all sorts of upgraded components via the Jeep Performance Parts line. Although the Wrangler and Gladiator are the most off-road-capable vehicles in their respective segments, many owners want items that make it even better on unpaved surfaces, and that is where the Jeep Performance Parts catalog comes into play. You can customize just about any aspect of these two Trail Rated vehicles, and the latest addition to the catalog makes the Wrangler and Gladiator more capable in serious off-road situations while also giving them a beefier appearance.
“Our Jeep Performance Parts team at Mopar is always looking for innovative ways to improve performance for off-road enthusiasts,” said Mike Koval, head of Mopar North America. “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.”
The Jeep Performance Parts 2-inch lift kit from Mopar comes with specially tuned 46-millimeter monotube shocks with remote reservoirs. The extra height improves ground clearance and makes room for larger tires while the Bilstein dampers offer a variety of advantages over the standard shocks, as stated below in the press release.
“The new Bilstein shocks complement increased ground clearance and larger wheels and tires by offering consistent, fade-free performance in all conditions. In addition, a self-adjusting, deflective-disc valve reacts instantly to surface changes, giving the driver maximum control.
Remote reservoirs increase oil capacity for greater heat dissipation, while a unique swivel banjo fitting allows for a 360-degree rotation of the flex hose for direct fitment while protecting the reservoir oil line from contact.”
This kit comes with everything needed to install this 2-inch lift in the Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator, including four springs, four Bilstein shocks, front lower control arms, front and rear stabilizer links, front and rear bump stops and all of the new fasteners needed – all of which use the factory mounting points, so there is no cutting or welding required. The kit also comes with a JPP badge and a JPP branded wooden crate.
“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,” said Jim Morrison, senior vice president and head of Jeep brand North America. “There is nothing quite like legendary Jeep 4×4 capability for enthusiasts who want to tackle the toughest terrains.”
This kit is available for the 2018-and-newer Wrangler and the 2020-and-newer Gladiator, with an MSRP of $2,095. A list of applicable part numbers is available below.
