JL JOURNAL : Bumping Up to a Rancho 3.5 Inch Lift

Literally days before Cindy and I needed to head out to SEMA 2018, we desperately scrambled to make a series of last minute upgrades to our JL Wrangler and specifically, because we were planning to attend the 1st Annual JLX, immediately after the show. Of course, based on past experience, we knew that we’d be needing a bit more lift if only to improve our break over angles and we decided to make that possible with a set of Rancho 3.5″ coils and all new RS9000XL long travel shocks. In this episode of the JL JOURNAL, you’ll get to see what it took for us to install everything but without going too much into detail as we have in the past. As a reference, I have included a host of links that highlight our previous installations and if needed, they should be able to help you along. We hope you enjoy the video and find the information in it to be useful.

If you enjoyed this video, Cindy and I would be grateful if you could please SUBSCRIBE to our YouTube channel!
