One of the world’s most recognized brands of off-road suspension components and accessories, Rancho is manufactured and marketed by Tenneco (NYSE: TEN).

Each new Rancho long-arm kit includes front and rear coil springs, upgraded front and rear bump stop spacers and front and rear extended length brake lines to accommodate the increased axle travel. The new Rancho kit fits up to a 37-in. tire.

The Rancho cross-over exhaust pipe kit prevents contact between the cross-over pipe and the front driveshaft, allowing for optimal driveshaft clearance and more suspension down travel than exhaust spacers.
The system is compatible with the Jeep JK Electronic Stability Control System. Each Rancho suspension system includes highly detailed, full-color product installation guides.
