RANCHO® LAUNCHES THREE PERFORMANCE SUSPENSION KITS FOR POPULAR WRANGLER TJ/LJ SERIES
LOS ANGELES, Tues., Jan. 25, 2011 – Rancho® – a legendary brand in off-road Jeeping and performance suspensions – has released three new suspension systems for the 1997-2006 Jeep Wrangler TJ/LJ series.
The Rancho systems incorporate its Jeep heritage and engineering excellence into each design. Rancho is manufactured and marketed by Tenneco Inc. (NYSE: TEN). Rancho headquarters are in Long Beach, Calif.
Rancho’s first option for the Wrangler TJ/LJ is the new 3.5-in. short-arm suspension system (p/n RS6504), providing additional performance benefits and head-turning appearance to the popular Jeep models. The red-only kit includes specially engineered, high-articulation 2-in. O.D. by 3/16-in. I.D. control arms with a patented bushing system that helps increase approach angles during off-road driving.
The new short-arm kit also includes a front adjustable track bar; new forged pitman arm; rear track bar relocation bracket; and front and rear heavy duty springs. Fitting up to 35-in. tires, the system includes a transfer case shifter relocation bracket and drop down spacers to allow for the use of factory drive-shafts; industry-leading front sway bar disconnect design; and new brake lines for increased articulation. No exhaust modifications are required to install the system.
Rancho also has launched two sport suspension systems for the TJ/LJ platform: a 3.5-in. kit that fits up to 35-in. tires (p/n RS6501) and a 2.5-in. kit that fits up to 32-in. tires (p/n RS6503). Both systems are available in a red finish only.
Each system includes rear track bar relocation bracket; new lower links; front and rear heavy duty springs; transfer case shifter relocation brackets and drop down spacers to allow use of factory driveshafts. The install requires no exhaust modification.
