Are UCA’s being developed? Like those offered in the Toyota range.

Is there increased travel with these kits?

Thx

does the kit not include top hats for the struts? Are these not adjustable such that you can't lift to "properly" fit 37s? I guess I'm not aware the sway bar needs replacement?? Is the price $1800 for all 4 corners? That's less than half of kits like 4WP, Fabtech and even some ICON. What am i missing???
These will not include top hats. These kits in particular are not adjust but our BP-51 setup will be.

We highly recommend the sway bar for heavier applications, just to help control the extra weight.

Heavy Kit is $1800 for everything: 2 struts, 2 shocks, 4 coil springs, track bar bracket, front sway bar, and one front and rear trim spacer.

Is the BP-51 available yet? What is cost?

@Ryan at ARB I've seen the stock photo that the kit is running with stock UCA. I assume it is okay to run with stock UCA. I suppose it is recommended to install an aftermarket UCA to compensate for the extra lift as well?
2" lifts won't require aftermarket/adjustable UCA's

So, thanks for this, but can you speak to a 2 door kit? Or should we just buy the light 4dr kit and plan on being able to add a bit more weight in options?

Also, any word on when your 2 door rock rails will be available?
we will have kits specifically for the 2 door. Not sure when they will be available.

I haven't heard of a rack the 2 door. Unfortunately, we currently only plan to offer them for the 4 door.

How in the F do you not have a bronco by now?
Are you a 2 door manual Sasquatch waiting for a painted hardtop guy?
Sadly, i'm just a 2-door Badlands 2.3/MT/High Package (with ZERO options) with a MY21 dealership allocation that got bumped to MY22...... And now very much looking like it will be a MY23 order, losing X-plan and losing price protection in the process.

And to make matters worse, @Ryan at ARB won't even promise a VIN if I buy the suspension. Help me help you, Ryan!

So the question would be what would happen if these are installed on a 2Dr? Just not tuned for weight?

In stock? For a 2.3 Black Diamond with an HD Modular Bumper

is the 2” lift comparing to stock or SAS?

also maybe I miscalculated but for your opened and closed measurements, Is that measured eye-to-eye? Converting to inches and comparing with other brands, I end up with this:


OME
Front 22.638 / 14.961 7.68”
Rear 27.008 / 16.732 10.276”

Icon
Front 24.53 / 17.6 6.93”
Rear 28.9 / 18.36 10.54”

KING
Front 23.96 / 17.88 6.08”
Rear 26.94 / 18.55 8.44”

Fox
Front 23.72 / 17.94 5.78”
Rear 26.42 / 19.44 6.98”

my question is on those compressed numbers.. I have seen a Bronco with a set of Kings (and admittedly 37s) rub the fenders on compression. So even on 35s, wouldn’t the tire just eat through the fenders at over 2” shorter than the closest competitor?

Pretty sure I’m missing something here. @BigMeatsBronco maybe you Wana weigh in?

and if my math is off here, what’s the actual stroke length and compressed measurement of the shock we can expect?

sorry for the tech questions, I’m just trying to see if this would work with my 37s (or what would need to change for it to work)

From website:


All models except for ones with the Sasquatch trim level will get approximately 2″ lift. Sasquatch models will get approximately .75″ lift.

Anti-sway bar notation: moderate to heavily loaded Broncos should be fitted with the OMESTAB10 bar.

It is not needed with the Sasquatch package (including Wildtrack) as all are OE supplied with a heavier bar”

Not yet but we will announce on Bronco6G.
Any updates? I’m so excited to learn of the BP-51 kit as I’m contemplating several brands.

This is correct - we are seeing the Sasquatch models net .75-1" of lift.

Are you seeing the non-sasquach models get the full 2" or is it more or less?
