Our new 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Rubicon has arrived! We have been doing research and reading up on news for months awaiting its release and arrival. Now its time to begin the actual work. Lets start with some simple information.

The new 2018 JL is available in 2 door, and 4 door versions, in a Sport, Sport S, Sahara and Rubicon models. Sport, Sport S and Sahara are basically the same in body and drivetrain with main differences in standard or available features. But the Rubicon has a few differences. At this time, 1/31/2018 the only engine choice is the 3.6 V6 in a 6 speed manual or 8 speed auto.

1. Rubicon has D44 axles front and rear. These axles are stronger, wider, use 4.10 gears, and come standard with electric lockers. Better gearing means more power with larger tires, and lockers making sure all 4 tire always spin in any situation.

2. Rubicon has electric sway bar disconnects. Easily allows much better articulation, so your tires stay on the ground.

3. Rubicon has a 4:1 transfer case. On road this doesn’t affect anything, but off road it multiply torque adding power and slows down the vehicle for more control.

4. Rubicon also has higher fenders. This helps run larger tires. Rubicon comes with 33s, but 35s basically fit, and with a 2-3" lift 37s may also work. 

So therefore we purchased a 4 door JLUR. JL is the model code name. U is for unlimited which is the 4 dr model, and R is for Rubicon. So our JLUR will go through a few build stages. Stage 1 will be a 2-3" lift, 37s with factory length adjustable arms. This will be a 100% bolt on suspension for easily installation, but be fully adjustable so you can setup all the necessary angles. If you do a 2-3" lift on a Sport, Sport S or Sahara this should fit a 35" tire. 

Above are some initial pictures, and we will add more information as our build unfolds. If you have any questions feel free to email us.  sales@claytonoffroad.com

What People Are Saying

I have had Clayton's 6 inch kit in my WJ for about 4 years now, and let me say it has been put to it's test. Great kit, great craftsmanship, and nothing better then supporting a local shop! Would recommend it to everyone! It's a large initial investment but it's going to save you money and time in the end. Well worth the money!! Great work guys!

Just got my 6.5" Clayton long arm kit installed. I have own tons of different brands of kits. COR is by far the best riding! For being a weld on kit installation was trouble free. Keep up the great work COR!

John S
I put Clayton's 3.5" long arm on my Rubi straight after arrival from the factory. After talking with them at Topless forTaTa's 2014, I was left very impressed with their attitude, business ethic, and product. Now, 22K miles later and several trips to Rausch Creek, I can't say enough how amazing this lift is off road AND ESPECIALLY on road. On top of it all, their customer service has been the best quality too. Keep it up Clayton; you guys are awesome!!

It's no lie, put the Clayton 3.5 lift on my 2014 JKU, and it rides nicer than stock! Great products even better customer service. Highly recommend.

Vincent C

I have Clayton's long arm kit on my 2003 WJ Overland, and all I can say is wow! Good ride, super flexy offroad, and tougher than any other kit I've seen, regardless of type of vehicle. Clayton is always the first brand I recommend to anyone with a Jeep looking for top quality parts. Keep up the great work!
