Jeep on a rockWhen Jeep introduced the TJ Wrangler in 1996, owners of CJ's and YJ's became green with envy. The buzzwords flex and articulation came to the forefront of discussions as everyone compared their rigs. The neat thing is that it spawned an incredible wave of creativity in the owners of the leaf-springed rigs. Buggy springs and Goofy Leafs became more popular as everyone wanted that extra bit of flex and a killer RTI ramp score.

Skid PlateFast Forward to 1999. This month, Warn will begin shipping it's new Black Diamond long-travel suspension for the Jeep Wrangler (YJ). Not far behind will be a kit for the CJ-7, a well.

Imagine the looks on your buddy's face when your Wrangler's suspension stretches more than 40" and scores a 1200 on a 20 degree index ramp or just walks right over that waterfall in Las Cruces like it was a super-highway. Oh, and wait until he rides with you and doesn't lose his teeth on the trail! That's what this kit is all about. Extreme 4-wheeling without sacrificing a good ride.

ShockThe kit uses Fox racing shox and has an optional remote reservoir with adjustable compression damping so you can customize the ride of the Jeep.

Warn says the kit should take very minimum welding and can easily clear a 33x12.50 tire. It's also easily adaptable to clear a 35" tire.

Contact Warn or your nearest Warn dealer for more details on how to make your YJ an extreme machine.
