Jeep owners love to modify their Wranglers to suit their personalities and performance needs on the trails. If you have a Jeep Wrangler JL, you may be wondering where to start with your modifications. Here are three reasons why a Jeep Wrangler JL lift kit should be one of your first investments.
Your stock Wrangler JL has pretty good clearance, but it may not be enough for every trail. You may find that you have a take a different line on the trail or have other Jeeps pull you through obstacles if you lack clearance. A lift kit works with tire size and other factors to create more clearance for your differentials and other parts under your Jeep.
Flexing and Articulation
In addition to clearance, your stock Jeep Wrangler may not be able to handle some obstacles because the tires rub the fenders. Some Jeep Wrangler JL lift kits create more space in the fender well so your Jeep can flex and articulate more. This gives you a greater range for managing more difficult obstacles on the trail.
If you want your Jeep Wrangler JL to have a tougher stance, a lift kit can help. Quality Jeep Wrangler JL lift kits can add between 1.5 and 6 inches of lift.
Tires are essential for any off road vehicle. Your stock Wrangler can handle some rather large tires without any modifications, but you may have problems on the trails. Lifting the Jeep makes more room for taller tires so you can handle a wider variety of trail conditions.
