    JL JOURNAL : EVO JL Coilover Suspension Installation - S#!T JUST GOT REAL / PART 2

    Ride quality is without question, 100% subjective and everyone has their own idea of what "good" is. Certainly, after over 20 years of testing a wide array of suspension systems and on all kinds of Jeeps, I'd be lying if I said that Cindy and I didn't have an idea of our own. Of course, for us, that would be a long arm suspension system with coilovers and specifically, one made by EVO!

    In spite of what so many people seem to think, not all long arm kits and coilover systems are made the same. In fact, most kits out there require you to have a sky high stance, lack any real up travel and offer a ride quality that is in my opinion, sub par. What we love most about the EVO system isn't the high clearance long arm brackets, the low stance you can set it to, the 15" of vertical travel, the crazy big flex it provides or how amazingly well it soaks up the bumps bombing across the desert, it's how awesome it handles and feels ON PAVEMENT and as a daily driver. Even though we work from home, we rack up a ton of miles on our Jeeps and just on our JL Wrangler alone, we've already got 36,000 of them. As most of you know, we NEVER trailer our Jeeps and so all our miles are from us driving around the country to get to trails, wheel them and then drive them back home again. It's because of this that ride comfort is so paramount for us and in our opinion, no other suspension system can come even close.

    In this episode of the JL JOURNAL, you'll get to see what it takes to get an EVO bolt-on coilover system installed on a Jeep JL Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited. You'll also get to see how a suspension system is cycled for maximum performance and get a quick look at some testing we did, out on dirt. We hope you enjoy.



    Without question, there's nothing cheap about an EVO high clearance long arm kit and coilover system but if you can afford it and need a shop to do the install, we would highly recommend you give Off Road Evolution a call. As you can see in the video, their guys know what they're doing and do great work.

    A BIG THANKS goes out to Mel and Lisa for helping to make JET into the JL Wrangler we've always wanted.

    Video was well done!

    Did you install wheel spacers when you got home? I thought I saw that you installed some in another thread.

    Pretty impressive!

    Two things are, John can spin a nut really fast and the rear coilovers look pretty easy to install.

    Awesome video. Learned a few things that will assist me dialing in my system. Although it's got crazy flex, the on-road performance is stupid good. Solid axles have no business handling pavement this well.

    Need? What's that word you speak of? It seems irrelevant.

    Wow. This is just incredible. Itís not what you see on the top side, but whatís on the under side that counts. Is there a $$ range someone could expect to be around to purchase this setup and have Melís crew install that you wouldnít mind sharing?

    So awesome! Everything looks amazing. Gotta keep saving my pennies lol. Loved the bonus action as well! I know you probably don't have to many miles yet, but how's it working out with the spacers and 4.75 backspacing? To wide/to high scrub or is it alright?
