2007 Jeep JK Wrangler - Synergy JK

    Used, Abused, and Better Than Ever

    Phil HowellPhotographer, Writer

    You've probably seen this Jeep before. Since 2007, Poly Performance and Synergy Mfg. owner Dave Schlossberg has used this JK Wrangler as a test mule while he and his engineers push the limits to design Wrangler products for the rest of us. It's the Jeep you see that's loaned to magazines for thrash fests and suspension shoot-outs. It's the Jeep that goes to events and trail rides around the country. It's one of the most-used Wranglers we've ever seen and is a credit to the amount of abuse a JK Wrangler can take and still come back for more.

    Some of the credit has to go to the parts installed. The Synergy Stage 4 Long Arm Suspension geometry is perfect, and with the 8-inch Synergy stretch kit, allows the Jeep to climb, descend, and articulate well. Currie Rock Jock 60 front and rearends are strong and trouble-free. Synergy armor and bumpers keep the JK relatively safe when it's being hung out in the rocks. Dave even installed a Synergy heat exchanger, part of their Sit Shower Shave kit that's a "full bathroom in a bucket."

    The Synergy JK shows how well a Jeep can work, even when it's really worked. This JK is a great showcase for Synergy Mfg. and the parts they offer for enthusiasts.
