San Antonio Custom Jeep Modifications
Jeep Winch Mods
With a winch, you can free yourself from a tough spot or even tow your buddies if they get stuck. Having one installed can mean the difference between making it home from your off-roading adventure or spending hours stranded in the middle of nowhere waiting for someone to come bail you out.
Jeep Suspension Lift Kid Mods
A standard Jeep straight from the factory stands about 8.3-10 inches above the ground. This won’t cut it if you’re looking to maneuver steep ascents or crawl over deep grooves. For that, you’ll need to lift your Jeep. Installing a lift kit and suspension upgrades will give you the increased ground clearance and improve how you handle your approach and departure angle. A better lift will allow you to drive over huge obstacles without ruining your undercarriage, getting stuck, or flooding your engine if you’re going into the water.
Shocks & Springs – Balancing Rebound
The first item people associate with suspension is springs and shocks. Older Wranglers (YJs) have leaf springs, while newer models have coil springs. Both are designed to absorb vertical impacts. When a vehicle goes over a bump or a hole, there is a vertical impact. The force of the impact is absorbed and distributed within the spring. The shock, or dampener, helps tame the energy absorption. If the vehicle were just on springs, it would continually bounce up and down when there was an impact. The up/down movement would continue until all of the energy absorbed by the spring is dispersed. A shock regulates and dampens that energy so the rebounding up/down movement is greatly reduced. This is why a stiffer shock results in a harsher ride as it quickly dampens the up/down movement. Also, some modern coil springs now come with different firmness rates, designed to react differently according to the pressure it’s absorbing.
