The Build

As Easter Jeep Safari 2019 was getting closer, we felt inspired to take a new wrangler and properly make it trail ready by stripping all the way down to almost just the frame. We wanted to show people that you can build up a sport model wrangler to be one of the most capable rigs out there - granted we changed just about everything on that jeep, but it made for one bad ass rig in the end.

This 2018 Jeep Wrangler JLU made its debut at the 2019 Easter Jeep Safari. The experience out at Easter Jeep Safari never disappoints. With the beautiful scenery that Moab has to offer and the iconic offroad trails, there are few places in the world that can give you the same feeling when you are wheeling. Being able to take this jeep there was a great chance to see what it's made of, as well as grab some really great photos.

The Jeep handled the trails in Moab without breaking a sweat. With proper axles, gearing, and suspension; it made it very easy to move those 40” Nitto tires along. This gives the jeep all sorts of grip and having our 6” long arm lift system gave the jeep the right amount of ground clearance and articulation.  We felt this Jeep could tackle just about anything we threw at it, including some high-speed sand dune fun that you can see in the video.

Moving forward, the plans for this Jeep are plain and simple, go around the country hanging out with Jeep enthusiasts, and wheel some fun trails whenever we can. Be sure to follow along on this Jeep's adventures through our social media platforms.

Jeep Wrangler JL 2" Lift Kits: BDS Suspension joins the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL market with the first of several lift systems to hit the shelves ready to ship. These new 2” lift systems are designed for improved on-road ride quality and offroad capability with clearance for 35” tires. Designed to not only lift, but enhance the new Wrangler JL’s all around performance, these new 2” systems come complete and ready to perform right out of the box. At each corner replacement JL-specific ProRide coil springs are supplied to mimic the factory ride and spring rate. These springs provide additional ride height, along with allowing for increased suspension travel over coil spacer kits on the market. They are paired with specially tuned NX2-gas shocks to offer a smooth ride and split second response to changes in the terrain with 10-stage velocity sensitive valving. These high pressure nitrogen gas charged shocks offer a huge improvement over the factory shocks and kits with shock extension brackets. Along with the new coil springs and gas shocks, these 2" kits include front and rear bump stop extensions to properly limit suspension up travel. Up front the front axle is repositioned forward to correct caster using a set of lower control arm cam locks. JKS quicker disconnects are supplied with the kit to unlock the front suspension’s potential to flex while maintaining quiet on road operation with a heavy duty adjustable design and spherical bushings. Along with the sway bar disconnects bolt-on mounting posts are supplied for each side to easily store the sway bar up out of the way when hitting the trail. In the rear extended length sway bar links are supplied to keep the sway bar at the optimal operating angle and allow more droop travel when paired with the rear NX2 shocks. Finishing out the rear of this kit is a 2-piece rear track bar bracket to recenter the rear axle under your new Wrangler JL while improving the operating angle for improved roll center geometry.

As with all BDS Suspension products these are backed by Factory Protection Plus offering safety and security with a limited lifetime warranty and ESC system compatibility along with 5-year, 100,000-mile extended drivetrain warranty. Go with confidence and get more out of your new 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL with BDS Suspension.
