  • New Jeep® Wrangler lift kit available now; new Jeep Gladiator lift kit arrives later this summer
July 30, 2020 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - For enthusiasts looking to further enhance the off-road capability of their Jeep® Wrangler or Gladiator, Mopar and Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) are introducing new specifically tuned 2-inch lift kits for EcoDiesel-powered Jeep models.

“Our comprehensive Jeep portfolio includes more than 500 factory-engineered, quality-tested, off-road performance parts and accessories,” said Mark Bosanac, Head of Mopar Service, Parts and Customer Care, FCA – North America. “At Mopar, we’ll continue to fill our catalog with ultra-capable, factory-backed features that resonate with Jeep fans.”

Both lift kits are validated to OEM specs in order to manage the increased vehicle curb weight and to deliver heightened ground clearance and higher approach/departure angles needed for larger tires. Specific features include:
  • Suspension articulation is increased 18 percent from stock for enhanced off-road vehicle capability
  • Larger 2.5-inch-diameter (versus 2-inch-diameter stock) aluminum-body FOX monotube shock absorbers are specifically tuned for increased weight capacity, durability and cooling during off-road conditions
  • Springs are specifically tuned for the diesel-engine application, which optimizes the dynamic performance in all on- and off-road driving conditions
  • Longer front lower control arms (versus stock control arms) offer ideal caster settings, while unique heavy-duty bushings provide improved vehicle control and assist with suspension articulation
  • Direct bolt-on kit requires no drilling, cutting or welding
Each JPP lift kit includes four springs, four FOX shocks, front lower control arms, front and rear stabilizer links, front and rear bump stops, various fasteners and JPP badge, all packaged in a custom, reusable wooden crate with the JPP logo.

The JPP Wrangler lift kit (Part #: 77072399AE) is available for purchase now, while the new JPP Gladiator lift kit (Part #: 77072469AC) will be available in late summer. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) for each kit is $1,495.

When oversize tires (33 inches in diameter and larger) are installed, the Mopar Vehicle Protection (MVP) Custom Calibration option reconfigures the vehicle speedometer and odometer calibrations for accurate gauge readings. The available option has an MSRP of $125.

I am going to check if this lift would work on a gasser. The increased spring weight might help offset spring sag from the weight of a winch and other accessories. Essentially treating
this kit like an HD kit for the 3.6

well if the regular Mopar lift is giving people like 3.5" of lift this kit will probably give you 5.5" :jk:

I think the diesel weighs more than 300 lbs over gas, not sure of any bumper/winch combo that gets close to that.

I wonder if the only major difference here is the height of the front springs, which the original kit should have anyway. Even before I installed my winch, I had a good two inches of rake and had to correct it with spacers.

For the price, though, this kit should still come with either adjustable control arms or adjustable trackbars.

Not me but some mount a steel cable winch, bumper, double battery setup, high-jack lift. The weight goes up from there for some overlanders.

The diesel weighs 392 pounds more if I remember right. Most of that weight is up front but there are some exhaust differences so I don’t know. I realize there are better lifts out there, but I do think this could be a suitable “heavy weight” lIft kit for some overlanders usage.
