Front Suspension

6 of 10
A triangulated suspension is not practical in the front with a traditional steering box, so the front suspension uses Pro Comp coils and 11-inch-travel Rubicon Express monotube shocks in conjunction with a three-link suspension and track bar. The lower links are constructed from 2-inch, 0.250-wall chromoly and fitted with Rubicon Express Super Flex joints that connect to a Rubicon Express subframe. The single upper is essentially a radius arm that extends from the lower link to the top of the differential with 1.5-inch tubing capped with rod ends. A Currie Antirock sway bar rounds out the suspension and keeps the Wrangler stable on the street as well as on the trail. Denis originally ran Hummer H2 wheels, but found that excessive backspacing made the hubs vulnerable in the rocks. The H2 wheels were swapped out for 17-inch Allied Monster beadlock wheels from Trent Fabrication.
