A LOOK AT JKS’S NEW 3” JSPEC JRATED SYSTEM FOR THE 2020 GLADIATOR JT
The long awaited new Jeep truck is here and right out the gate it has an impressive sell sheet, class leading payload numbers, ample power numbers, offroad capability and unique features like the removable roof. It’s safe to say the new Gladiator is making waves in the offroad market and customers get it. While there are some similarities to the current Wrangler JL in the front suspension, the rear is all new with longer control arms and progressive rate coils that resemble more of the RAM 1500 rear suspension. The truck is capable right off the showroom floor, but its only a matter of time before the aftermarket gets their hands on it to up the ante, providing more performance, more capability, and all the other add-on accessories that come with owning a Jeep. With keys in hand we turned to our friends at JKS Manufacturing in Coldwater, MI to take a look at their newly released 3” Jspec suspension system to get the inside scoop on what it takes to lift the new Gladiator to fit 35-37” tires. JKS Mfg is no stranger to engineering parts for Jeep vehicles, they’ve been at this for 30 years designing solutions for Jeep vehicles.
