Pure Performance Rhino Suspension System - Pure Bred Rhino Performance

Pure Performance specializes in late model pickup and SUV suspension systems. However the people who run Pure Performance also enjoy riding side-by-sides in their home state of New York. As such, they developed an entry level suspension system that met the needs of a majority of Rhino owners everywhere. At 3 inches wider per side the Trail Runner mid-travel kit adds significant stability to the nimble Rhino chassis, yet still allows owners the ability to haul the rig around in a full-size long bed pickup with the tailgate down. A favorable 2-inch increase in wheelbase is included with this system, giving Rhino owners that little extra advantage for climbing hills. The completely bolt-on kit provides height increases by at least 2 inches with the OE coilovers, which should help accommodate larger than stock tires and wheels. The system was intended to improve wheel travel while remaining value priced. But don't let the low price of this system fool you. Once installed the name Pure Performance immediately rings true, allowing drivers to push harder through corners, and faster over the rough stuff. We optioned our test kit with a set of high-performance Elka adjustable remote reservoir coilover shocks. The results were simply stunning. Follow along as we highlight the installation process as completed by Trains 4x4 in Salinas, California.
