SEMA 2019: Hellwig Jeep Gladiator Raises The Roof In Las Vegas

Hellwig Suspension Products Jeep Gladiator on display at SEMA 2019

Wrapping up our tour of SEMA 2019 is a lifted Jeep Gladiator that literally has been “lifted twice.” Mike Hallmark, International Sales and Marketing Manager for Hellwig Suspension Products explained the reasoning behind the raised rear rump of the truck, and what makes their products so spectacular.

Simply put, the back-end of the Jeep Gladiator on display had been lifted on 18-inch wheel chocks in order to showcase the brand’s latest load and sway control products for the chassis. While massive 40-inch tires and a suspension lift from the truck’s owners over at Icon Suspension certainly helped as well, adequately exposing the large diameter sway bar was a must Hallmark explains.

Made entirely from forged chromoly steel, this beefy sway bar is specifically designed for lifted applications that have been raised anywhere from 3-5-inches. A trio of mounting points on the sway bar itself allow three-way adjustability, and each of these bars have been suspension travel tested to achieve a bump-to-droop level that is so balanced that it can barely be noticed.

“You don’t sacrifice any of your drivability on the highway, where you are going to and from the tail, you also don’t limit your articulation, and your slow crawling rate,” Hallmark tells us. “It feels like you are driving a race car on 40-inch tires.”

Granted, being that this is not a leaf spring setup there is more inherent body roll, so Hellwig manufacturers this product to be a solid sway bar unit, thus allowing a higher spring rate and therefore more stability. Coupled with more even weight distribution from inside to outside tire, then fine tuned to your Gladiator’s ride ride height, this 3-way adjustable sway bar is the ultimate solution for those looking to fine tune their ride and rate of roll.
