According to Jeep, the four-inch kit arrives next month with factory tuned springs, remote reservoir shocks, new brake lines and control arms, a double cardan driveshaft, steering damper and a high-steer conversion kit. More detailed specifications haven’t been announced, other than its $2,250 price tag, but fitted to the Wrangler Red Rock, the kit allowed for 37-inch BF Goodrich Mud Terrain tires to find a home underneath.
It comes as good news for Jeep fans looking for factory alternatives to aftermarket kits, but it also stimulates a larger question. Will Jeep bring a pickup truck back to market? If those at the company’s upper echelon have a say… then yes. Jeep CEO Mike Manley previously noted that he would like to see a pickup return to the Jeep lineup, but that it would likely debut with the next generation Wrangler – expected in 2017.
