Jeep Wrangler JL RaceRunner Shocks
This entry was posted on January 24, 2018 by Tyler Carrington.
aFe Control has finished the development of our RaceRunner series of shocks for the new Jeep Wrangler JL! With sets that match both the front and rear, we have options that support lifts from 0 inches all the way to 5 inches for your Jeep. Featuring a simple bolt-on design, the RaceRunner Series is a great option to give your Wrangler JL much better off-road performance than stock!
If you ride in a stock Wrangler JL, you’ll notice the suspension runs a bit on the stiff side. That is mainly because of the shock absorbers being tuned for on-road use, and not off-road use specifically. For those who plan on taking their Jeep off-road, aftermarket shock absorbers are a must-have option, and aFe Control delivers the best bolt-on solution with our RaceRunner line of shocks.
Our engineers worked around the clock and produced the first matching front and rear set just two days after getting our newly purchased 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL 3.6L! Our game plan for these shocks was to give the Jeep JL a smoother ride over bumps and better offroad performance without complicated fabrication, cutting, drilling, or welding. A culmination of all the years of experience in the suspension industry helped us design, build, and install these performance shocks in such a short amount of time.
The handling of the Jeep immediately improved after installing the RaceRunners, and the beautiful look of the black anodized shock body makes the shocks visually appealing as well. Bumps and potholes that once jarred the Jeep when driven over now felt smooth and comfortable even at higher speeds.
This is just the beginning of our journey to upgrade the JL platform with high performance aftermarket suspension components, and we have plenty of options lined up to release for the new Jeep Wrangler JL soon. We’re proud to introduce the RaceRunner line to the Wrangler JL, and we’re excited to share with you what we produce so you can have the ultimate off-road experience with your Jeep Wrangler JL!
