Rancho Delivers Rockcrawler and Sport Options for New Jeep Design;
Both Systems Easily Accommodate 35-in. Tires
The brand built on “no-compromise” off-road-proven suspensions is again at the forefront of the market two new
application-engineered suspension systems for the 2007 Jeep Wrangler JK.
The Rancho systems incorporate its legendary Jeep heritage and engineering excellence into each design.

Rancho’s first option for the Wrangler JK is the Long-Arm Rockcrawler system (p/n RS6508B), engineered for high
articulation and increased ground clearance required in demanding off-road adventures. The Rockcrawler system
includes an all-new, exclusive Rancho design: self-lubricating spherical composite rod-ends that deliver enhanced off-
road performance and improved ride quality.
The Rancho Rockcrawler edition is compatible with optional competition grade coil springs for vehicles running at
maximum GVW. The new Rancho system also includes a front and rear track bar relocation bracket and heavy duty,
quick-disconnect front sway-bar end links to deliver a zero-bind steering envelope and a forged pitman arm that allows
for optimal steering geometry and minimized bump steer.

Rancho’s second option for the new Jeep Wrangler JK is the new Sport system (p/n RS6507B). Designed for quick and
easy installation, the Rancho Sport system offers a high-clearance drop bracket design that requires no cutting or
welding during installation. This system also includes a front and rear track bar relocation bracket and a forged pitman
arm. This system also is fully compatible with the competition-grade coil-springs.

For more information on the new Rancho Wrangler JK systems or other Rancho products, contact your local LA Sport

When Jeep released the all-new 2007 Wrangler (JK), Warn Industries made sure to offer the aftermarket performance
parts needed to make this vehicle ready for the toughest off-road adventures. To accommodate JK enthusiasts, Warn
Industries has launched a front Rock Crawler Bumper for this vehicle.
The WARN Rock Crawler Bumper is constructed from heavy 3/16" and 1/4" steel, and is CNC formed and robotically
welded. The bumper features tapered ends for an increased approach angle; welded eyelets to mount D-shackles, for
increased recovery options, and round light ports. For added vehicle protection, there's an optional front Grille Guard
To top it off, a black powder-coated wrinkle finish provides good looks and outstanding durability.

Warn Rock Crawler Bumpers are now available from your local LA Sport Dealer. Contact details available on
