Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator EcoDiesel Get Mopar Suspension Lift Kits
Jeep is rolling out the very first diesel engine option in the Wrangler family (dubbed EcoDiesel by the brand). It also adds the same 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V6 to the 2021 Gladiator pickup. The point is, however, that a lot of Jeep Wrangler (and Gladiator) owners love to play with their SUVs (or trucks). ): add accessories, replace the original wheels and tires for aftermarket units and lift the suspensions for more ground clearance. While these Wrangler EcoDiesel (and – in the future – Gladiator) owners could likely benefit from the same suspension upgrades that work on the gas-powered equivalents of these Jeeps (parts would fit, after all), they’d better be explore Fiat Chrysler Catalog from Mopar Accessory Arm, which offers an even better option.
That better option is a new diesel-specific 2.0-inch suspension lift kit. You see, the diesel powered Wrangler and Gladiator models are significantly heavier than their gasoline counterparts. Take the Wrangler, for example. Jeep claims the EcoDiesel model weighs 4,862 pounds wet, which is 413 pounds more than the standard four-door Wrangler Unlimited with the 3.6-liter V6 and an automatic transmission. (We only compare the four-door Wrangler to the four-door Wrangler – automatic to automatic – because the EcoDiesel engine is only available on Unlimited models and pairs exclusively with an automatic gearbox.) The diesel Wrangler also outperforms the Wrangler. Unlimited when equipped with the 2.0-liter turbo-charged four-cylinder engine available from the SUV with a remarkable 384 pounds. These disparities are expected to spill over to the gladiator as well.
Mopar’s EcoDiesel-specific suspension lift kit is therefore tuned to account for the added weight of the diesel V-6. As with other Mopar accessories, the kit also comes with the added benefit of not ruining your new diesel-powered Jeep’s warranty – and the setup even includes a two-year, unlimited mile (or the rest of the Wrangler’s warranty) warranty. Three year, 36,000 mile Gladiator (whichever comes first). This is not something you can count on with an aftermarket kit. Also, Jeep engineers helped assemble this 2 lift kit. , 0 inches, which should ensure a certain cohesion between the chassis and the suspension that an aftermarket configuration might not respect.
Kits for the EcoDiesel Wrangler (part number 77072399AE) and Gladiator (part number 77072469AC) cost $ 1,495 (installation not included) and include four 2.5-inch diameter Fox shocks, new springs, thrust bumpers, arms front command and un-roll end of bar links. The proper hardware and bushings are also included, and the complete kit is a bolt-on case, meaning no cutting or drilling is required to install it. Mopar even throws all the components together in a fresh reusable wooden crate, which can be reused to contain the original factory parts. (We would probably turn it into a nifty coffee table or something).
In addition to increasing the Jeeps’ suspension height by 2.0 inches, Mopar EcoDiesel lift kits are said to increase suspension articulation by 18%. Customers who want to upgrade their wheels and tires to make them more meaty (hence, with an outside tire diameter greater than 33 inches) can also purchase the $ 125 Mopar Speedometer Calibration Kit which represents the most. large rolling stock.
