ICON Releases 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL 2.5” Suspension System

New from ICON – the 2.5” suspension system for the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL. This system is designed to drastically improve on and off-road ride quality. See more details below.

Official Release:

ICON Vehicle Dynamics is excited to provide a sneak-peek into the development of a 2.5” suspension system for the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL. Aimed at drastically improving (not just maintaining) on and off-road ride quality this system includes dual rate coil springs, 2.0 Aluminum Series shocks, link arms, front and rear bump stops, sway bar end links, and all necessary hardware for a complete install. The JL is a much more “refined” vehicle compared to previous Wranglers, and with improved suspension geometry and more robust components this new Jeep sees significant performance gains with the introduction of ICON suspension products.

Through an accelerated testing process dubbed the “ICON1K” R&D program, ICON has logged over a thousand miles in the dirt pushing the JL to off-road extremes to identify limiting factors in OE components, develop products that remove these limits, and further extrapolate performance out of this vehicle. This 2.5” suspension system has been tweaked, tuned, and revised several times over the course of this ICON1K testing in an effort to provide unparalleled ride quality and vehicle dynamics for everything from rock crawling to high-speed desert running. By removing the aforementioned “limiting factors” this ICON suspension system completely redefines the potential of the 2018-UP Jeep JL with wheel travel gains over 30%!

This ICON Vehicle Dynamics 2.5” suspension system will allow for the use of a 35” tire, while ICON Alloys offers wheels in both a 4.5” and 4.75” backspace that provides ideal fitment for the varying axle widths found on Rubicon and non-Rubicon models. For those who are looking to install a 37” tire, ICON will be offering a bump stop spacer kit that allows for this as well. Additional ICON JL components are currently in development, so be sure to keep your eyes out for an official release on the COMPLETE 2.5″ suspension system lineup in the coming weeks!

Features:

  • 2.5″ lift height
  • Fits 35″ tires (37″ with bump stop spacer kit)
  • 3″ front, 2″ rear increase in wheel travel
  • Improves on and off-road ride quality over stock
  • Dual rate coil springs with lifetime guarantee against sagging/breakage
  • 2.0 Aluminum Series shocks with vehicle specific valving
  • 100% bolt-on system makes for an easy install
  • “ICON 1K” tested under rigorous off-road conditions to validate tune, performance, strength, and durability
