J Spec Suspension Systems: July marked a year since the release of our JSpec suspension
line. JKS added the J Kontrol system to the JK line up, bringing JKS’s knowledge of all things
off road to urban maneuvers, as well as the first of the TJ J Spec suspension systems that will take
the TJ to a new level of on road and off road capability. Rounding things out were our Advanced Geometry
kit and draglink flip for the JK for Jeepers wanting to add J Spec geometry to other brand’s
suspensions. 2016 promises more JSpec packages for the JK, as well as new offerings for the TJ and
JKS Control Arms: JKS took a look at the control arms for 4 link Jeeps, rereleasing new
and improved versions of all three of it’s control arm variants: Our indestructible
J-Link control correct castor and pinion angles while maintain the factory ride quality and
simplicity of the factory rubber bushed control arms. The adjustable
J-Flex control arms are JKS’s re-envisioning of the traditional adjustable control arm.
With a forged flex joint on one end and OE rubber bushing on the other, the J-Flex arms allow you to
fine tune you caster, pinion angle and axle placement and adds a good street ride, off road performance
and rugged durability to you Jeep. The forged flex joint is our own design which allows for easy servicing,
performance and durability that you don’t find in other flex joints. The J-Flex arm is a great
choice for the off roader who wants the quality and performance you expect from JKS! The
J-Axis control arm was rereleased for the JK, along with some minor changes for other applications.
The J-Axis arms are a flagship product for JKS; they’re the ultimate high performance control arm
for the daily driven Jeep. Both ends are rubber bushed for a premium feel on the road, but what makes
a J-Axis arm unique is that arm itself rotates as the vehicle travels over obstacles. This is achieved
with a finely threaded center shaft with a brass bushing and dual high durometer seals to keep it water
tight and lubricated. This threaded center allows fine adjustments control arm length, but with no resistance
as the arm deflects keeping wheel travel is smooth, consistent and instantaneous. Since this is no limitation
to the rotation this gives you access to 100% of the flex the rest of your suspension will allow. There
is no jam nut to set, you just adjust the arm to length and bolt it in!
Events from Coast to Coast: 2015 was a big year for events! Our 2Door JK continues to prove
itself out on the trail, despite the modest 37'' tires in a see of 40s. JKS started out the year climbing
the rocks in Moab at Easter Jeep Safari. We brought JP Freek Adventure Magazine along at the Jeep Jamboree
in Big Bear, tackled the Rubicon Trail with Nitto Tire at the 63
rdannual Jeepers Jamboree and finished off with a wild adventure through the Rockies with JK Experience
Throughout the year we attended dozens of open houses and Jeeps shows across the country, including Jeep
Beach, Bantam Jeep Festival, PA Jeeps, Overland Expo, Timber Crawl, All 4 Fun, Off Road Expo and
of course, SEMA!
What’s in store for JKS in 2016? The year will start with the refresh and repair of the JK-S two
door, then it’s off to an early start, with off road events starting as early as mid January!!!
Look for new J Spec variants for the JK and the expansion of the J Spec TJ/LJ line up as well as
more Flex Connect versions and applications. Looking forward to seeing you in 2016! Happy Jeeping!
