Jeep Performance Parts Introduces Factory-Designed 4-Inch Wrangler Lift Kit

When you buy a new Jeep Wrangler, you’re not really getting a new car—you’re getting a blank canvas to customize, modify, hack apart, and bolt back together in whatever crazy one-off combo you desire. Jeep knows this, as evidenced by the plethora of Mopar and Jeep Performance Parts accessories available for the venerable off-roader. Now, you can roll with the big boys but maintain the reassurance of factory engineering: Next month, Jeep Performance Parts will begin offering a four-inch suspension lift for the Wrangler.

We first saw the new four-inch kit at the unveiling of Jeep’s 2015 Moab Easter Safari concepts, albeit clandestinely: The custom Red Rock Responder concept (shown above) sits on the Jeep Performance Parts lift. Jeep’s in-house accessory line has offered a two-inch lift for some time—as seen on the Wrangler Africa and Jeep Chief concepts also shown at the Easter Safari showcase—but this is the first time Jeep has offered a four-inch kit engineered in-house.

The kit packs new springs, remote-reservoir shocks, new control arms, a new front driveshaft and yoke, lengthened brake lines, a high-steer conversion kit, a steering damper, and all the necessary brackets to complete the installation. The whole outfit costs $2250, though sadly, it’s available only for the four-door Wrangler, 2007 to current.

Of course, if you really want to roll with the biggest boys, you’ll need to throw in another upgrade from the Jeep Performance Parts catalog: bolt-in front and rear Dana 60 axles with either 4.88:1 or 5.38:1 gearing and the brakes from a Ram 3500. Which, if you go that route, will add another $13,000 total to your project budget. But hey, you can never be too prepared.
