Skyjacker 4.5-inch Suspension

If you're looking for enough suspension height to clear some really big runners, then look no further than the Jeep Gladiator Long Travel Suspension System from Skyjacker. The company's Jeep Gladiator 4.5-inch Dual Rate-Long Travel coils deliver a lighter spring rate first for a good road ride, while the second higher rate only engages during coil compression. The spring rates change during a rate-transition range based upon suspension travel, and the long-travel coils expand as the suspension terrain changes. Shocks are included in the kit.
