New short-arm kits from Rancho

Rancho has announced the release of two new off-road specific, precision engineered Rancho Crawler short-arm suspension systems for the Jeep Wrangler JL Unlimited Rubicon and Unlimited non-Rubicon models.

The new short-arm 3.5-in. suspension system for Wrangler JL Unlimited Rubicons (Part No. RS66123B) and 4.5-in. suspension system for Wrangler JL Unlimited non-Rubicons (Part No. RS66125B) provide competitive ride performance and vehicle stance. The systems are designed to be compliant with the U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 126 – Electronic Stability Control Systems (FMVSS-126).

The kits include progressive rate coil springs and adjustable Rancho control arms with new Rancho D2 synthetic high articulation bushings for superior dampening, improved ride/handling characteristics and no maintenance. These systems also feature D2 bushings inside the heavy-duty front and rear track bars to easily center the axles.

The Rancho kits were designed for full compatibility with the Jeep Electronic Stability Control System. The systems fit up to a 37-in. tire. Each system includes highly detailed, full-colour, step-by-step Rancho installation guides. An aftermarket driveshaft is required for this kit to achieve maximum front articulation.
