The only coilover conversion for the 2007-2016 Jeep Wrangler JK 2 and 4 door that addresses these important factors:
Ease of install
Why Bolt On?
When our RECON system first came out, it went up against a very popular weld-on system offered by our competition. However, it addressed many concerns the weld on system didn't.
Time to install: RECON can be installed in one day, by anyone. Don't have a welder? Don't have access to an installation bay? Don't have years of suspension experience? Not a problem with our system. If you can drill, line up bolt holes, and turn a wrench, you are 100% capable of installing coilovers on your Jeep JK.
Reliability: Because our bracket system has zero moving parts, there are no joints or hinges that can wear over time and fail.
Performance: Our RECON coilover conversion gives your Jeep JK both unrivaled on road performance and off road stability and articulation. Everything from daily driven Jeeps on 35 tires to wild builds with 44 mud bogger tires each benefit from converting to coilovers.
Customizability: Because the brackets do not have to endure heat from welding, your brackets can be custom powdercoated to retain a color scheme you may have already started with your build. This is very important to more customers than many think.
But - it's bolts...
Correct - and nothing against welding. In fact, every single one of our brackets can be welded on if you so wish. Let's also look at what else is bolted on your Jeep: wheels, brakes, drive shafts, engine, seats, power steering box, etc etc etc. With the proper torque spec, bolting suspension components on is perfectly safe.
What does bolt on gain me?
Several important factors. Installation is much less time consuming, allowing for same day installation. Bolt on allows you to carry the system with you. You can return a Jeep back to its original configuration prior to sale, and reinstall the coilover kit on your next JK. A great option for leased or rolled/damaged vehicles.
Front Hydraulic Bumpstops?
The addition of hydraulic bump stops enables the vehicle to absorb impacts in a controlled manner without the jarring effect of a rubber or polymer based bump stop. Hydraulic bump stops also control unwanted body roll and dipping when you to traverse a side hill. The front upper hydraulic bump stop mount is a direct bolt on application and utilizes the same three mounting holes and hardware as the front coil over hoop. The brackets are recessed inside the factory coil-spring bucket.
This design is inherently strong as this is where the factory coil-spring is located. (The coil-spring mounts hold the entire weight of the vehicle.) The bump stop follows the same trajectory as the front coil overs. This allows both the bump-stop and the coil over to work in unison and for full energy absorption.
The hydraulic bump stop contact area on the axle is the factory coil-spring / bump stop locating bracket. The upper mounts are angled to allow for correct contact and full energy absorption between the bump stop and the lower axle mounted bump pad when the vehicle is articulated and the suspension is cycled.
We invite anyone to ride in a JK with our RECON coilover conversion. On road and off road handling are unmatched. It's a smoother, safer, and smarter ride all around.
