From the dealer lot this Jeep Sahara Altitude was blacked out and super slick. While that may satisfy the average new car buyer it most definitely does not to a Jeep owner. Brian wasted no time and neither did we. First up we ordered a Metal Cloak 3.5-inch dual rate lift kit with rock sport shocks. This is the perfect kit so you can enjoy your Jeep with a lift now, with opportunity to build on for the future.
- Duroflex joints enhanced with Kevlar.
- True dual rate coils.
- Durotrak equipped front trackbar.
- Specifically tuned rock sport shocks for true dual rate coils.
- Height adjustable bump stops.
Tires are always top of the list when building a Jeep and Brian chose a set of 37-inch Patagonia M/T’s. Designed to be at home rock crawling, mud bogging, or a casual drive through mountain trails, the Patagonia M/T has all the attributes to overcome any terrain. The high-void tread design is engineered to provide aggressive biting edges while promoting self-cleaning.
Motiv Off Road Mutant 20 by 10 wheels were used for their blacked out spoke design. With a negative 25 offset these wheels help widen the stance of the Jeep. With the extra weight of the larger tire and wheel combo a new heavy duty tire carrier was needed. The decision was to use the new Smittybilt JL HD Pivot Tire carrier as it will carry up to a 40-inch tires without the tailgate sagging or buckling. It is customizable as it can mount the tire vertically or in a slant back position. The easy-to-use single action opening and closing of the tailgate works without rattles or vibrations.
