Mopar Offers Two-Inch Lift for Diesel Gladiator, Wrangler

Diesel Jeeps need a lift, too, and now they're getting it along with a sweet crate

  • Lift designed to work with extra weight of diesel engine

  • More suspension travel, more capability for Wrangler, Gladiator


Mopar is giving diesel-powered Jeep Gladiator and Wrangler owners a lift with a new Jeep Performance Parts lift kit designed for that heavier lump in the nose of the off-roaders.

Both lift kits are tested the way the original pieces would be, says Mopar, but in this case to make sure they can handle the diesel’s extra weight as well as the different needs of higher ground clearance and steeper approach and departure angles. And knowing you’ll probably be upping the tire size.

2020 Jeep Wrangler Diesel Engine Will Cost $4,000

The 2.0-inch lift kits come with new springs all around ready for the diesel weight. It also has 2.5-inch diameter Fox monotube shocks, half an inch larger than stock. The bigger size helps keep the shocks cool off-road and increase durability.

Longer front lower control arms fix the caster settings while heavy-duty bushings let the suspension articulate and, Mopar says, improve control.

The lift and suspension changes increase articulation by 18 percent in addition to the extra ground clearance, both improving performance over rocks and rugged terrain.

While the kit comes with the springs, shocks, control arms, bump stops, stabilizer links, and a JPP padge, the coolest part is the wooden crate. It’s reusable so you can either store the old parts or make it part of your in-bed storage solutions.

The kit starts from $2,165 for Wrangler and $2,310 for Gladiator, available late this summer. It also includes warranty coverage for two years or up to the remainder of the new vehicle warranty.
