The TJ has been stretched a total of 7 inches and lifted 4 inches using a Rubicon Express long-arm suspension kit modified by Samco Fabrication. The Jeep rolls on 40-inch Goodyear MT/R tires. The rear suspension pushes the axle back 5 inches and features a triangulated four-link design coupled with Pro Comp coils and 16-inch-travel Edelbrock remote-reservoir shocks. The lower links were built from 2-inch, 0.250-wall DOM tubing and Summit Machine Jimmy Joints. Since the upper links are less susceptible to damage, 1.75-inch, 0.125-wall tubing was deemed sufficient.
