4.1.3.4 Maximum front wheel travel is 10″. This will be measured with the vehicle jacked up so both front tires are off the ground and the frame supported. Wheels and tires must be left in place, and limit straps must be fully extended. On beam axle models the suspension travel will be considered the vertical distance from the metal bump stop pad on the axle to the metal bump stop bracket /pad on the frame, not including the rubber, plastic or urethane bump stop. On IFS models the front wheel travel will be measured at the center line of the front spindle as the suspension is stroked through its travel from metal stop top metal stop. The length of the shock absorber shaft will not be used to calculate or measure wheel travel. Suspension travel may be checked before or after an event. Competitors are responsible at all times for providing the correct jacking devices for their jeep in the technical inspection area prior to the race as well as in the winners impound area after the race to enable race officials to check wheel travel.

4.1.3.5 Limit straps must be used on both ends of the front beam axle. They must be located in a vertical
plane toward the outside of the centerline of the frame rails. The straps must mount to the axle on or
forward of the vertical centerline of the axle, and the upper mounts must lie vertically above or forward of the lower mounts. Straps must be double layer and be manufactured by a name brand supplier. IFS limit strap
location is open but must restrict travel to 10″ and front shocks may be removed to check travel measurements 4.1.3.6 Springs are open (diameter, rate, length, etc.) but the upper spring mount must remain in the
stock location and the lower spring mount must be within 2″ of the original location. IFS models may use approved aftermarket direct bolt in coil over shocks utilizing factory upper mountings. CJ and Scrambler
specific must use front and rear leaf springs with shackles not to exceed 6″ eye to eye.

4.1.3.7 Shock rules…… A single shock absorber per side is allowed with a maximum diameter of 3″ with no form of bypass, or 2-1/2 inches with external or internal bypass or adjustment. Currently, the largest actual outside diameter of a commercially available 2-1/2 inch shock body is 2.65 inches, and this will be the maximum allowable measured diameter. Shocks or reservoirs with cooling fins will be measured at the base of the cooling fin. Rate adjusters or anti cavitation adjusters may be added to resevoirs The upper shock mount must be in the approximate stock location and must not protrude through the inner fender well into the engine compartment (except for only the stock pin-type upper shock mount if used). The upper shock mount may be strengthened by adding material. The lower shock mount is open, but must mount to the axle and not the control arm on beam axle models. On IFS models the lower shock mount must attach to lower A arm within 2″ of original position.Remote reservoirs are allowed with a maximum diameter of 3″ and a maximum length of 16″, and may only utilize a single hose for fluid attachment to the shock (no double-hose recirculating systems). Liquid cooling of shocks and reservoirs is not allowed. YJ Wranglers may use TJ front suspension kits or XJ front axle/suspension conversion kit (currently approved kit from Warrior Products.). 4.1.3.8 If applicable a stock concept panhard (or track) bar system must be used. Panhard bars and brackets are open. Aftermarket or stock brackets may be strengthened by adding material.

4.1.3.9 Bump stops are required to attach in the original locations and may be of any material.
Air/Hydraulic bump stops are allowed. Mounting locations on frame may be modified only enough to allow mounting of new bump stops, but bump stop angles may be changed. WJ Grand Cherokees must install front hydraulic or air bump stops in same location as XJ, TJ and ZJ models i.e. inside the front coil, or, may use the original factory rubber bumps or aftermarket urethane bumps in the original locations. WJ models can place hydraulic bump stops inside rear springs or use the original location for rubber or urethane bumps. On IFS models the front bump stop location is open.

4.1.3.10 Original type steering box or rack and pinion must be used but may be modified and must be mounted in stock location using the stock mounting holes; however the mounting area may be strengthened by adding material. Steering quickener box may be added and steering shaft modified or replaced as necessary. Steering components (tie rods, tie rod ends, pitman arm, track bars etc.) are open. The steering system must remain stock concept OF tie rod and drag link or rack and pinion (i.e. no remote steering, bell cranks, etc.). Power steering pump and reservoir is open, and fluid coolers and filters may be installed. I.F.S. models must use stock rack and pinion steering. Beam front axles must use stock concept of steering knuckles and ball joints. King pin steering is not
permitted on straight axles.


4. 1.4 Rear Suspension

4.1.4.1 Stock frame spring mounts may be strengthened by adding material or replaced but must remain in original location.

4.1.4.2 Axle leaf spring brackets may also be strengthened by adding material, but must remain in original locations relative to axle centerline. Pinion angle may be changed from stock by rotating the spring bracket on the axle, but the spring must remain mounted over the axle using stock mounting method. Short wheel base Comanche trucks can use the stock spring under configuration. Short wheel base Wrangler spring bucket may be re-located to long wheel base 103.4″ position. The frame may be notched but upper plain of the frame may not be broken .YJ Wranglers may install TJ rear suspension systems

4.1.4.3 Cherokee XJ , Wrangler YJ, CJ and Scrambler rear springs may be lengthened to a maximum 57.5″ measured eye to eye through the arc of the main leaf, and must mount in the original stock manner under the frame and over the axle. Rates and capacities are open. Front spring mount may be moved forward
2.5″ from stock location. Rear shackles are open but must not exceed 6″ eye to eye. Two single point or one three-point anti wrap bars may be used on the rear axle assy.

4.1.4.3 Rear coil springs may be of any manufacturer.


4.1.4.4 Maximum rear suspension travel is 12″. This will be measured with the vehicle jacked up so that both rear tires are off the ground and the frame supported. Wheels and tires must be left in place, and limit straps must be fully extended. The suspension travel will be considered the vertical distance from the metal axle tube/pad to the metal bump stop mounting location/pad on the frame, not including the rubber, plastic, or urethane bump stop. Suspension travel may be checked before and after an event.


4.1.4.5 Limit straps must be used on both ends on the rear axle. They must be located in a vertical plane within 2″ either way of the center line of the frame rails. The straps must mount to the axle on or behind the vertical centerline of the axle, and the upper mounts must lie vertically above and behind the lower mounts. Straps must be double layer and be manufactured by a name brand supplier.


4.1.4.6 A single shock absorber per side is allowed with a maximum diameter of 3″ with no bypass, or 2- 1/2 inches with internal or external bypass or adjustment. Currently, the largest actual outside diameter of a commercially available 2 1⁄2 inch shock body is 2.65 inches, and this will be the maximum allowable measured diameter. The upper shock mounts may be inside the passenger compartment, but minimal material must be removed from the fender wells or floor for installation. The lower shock mount is open but must mount to the axle directly (no remote mounted shocks). As an alternative: two shock absorbers per side are allowed with a maximum outer body diameter of 2 inches (2.15 inches actually measured body diameter), but these shocks must be mounted completely below the floor pan.

Shock location is optional, but lower mounts must attach to the axle directly (no remote mounted shocks). Remote reservoirs are allowed with a maximum diameter of 3 inches and a maximum length of 16 inches and may only utilize a single hose for fluid attachment to the shock (no double-hose recirculating systems). Liquid cooling of shocks and reservoirs is not allowed. Anti-cavitation or rate adjuster may be added to resevoirs.


4.1.4.7 Bump stops are required in the original locations and may be of any material. Air/hydraulic bump stops are allowed. Bump stop mounting locations on frame may be modified only enough to allow mounting of new bump stops.

4.1.4.8 Must use rear suspension components from the approved suspension manufactures. Rear track
bar may be replaced by triangulated link systems. Rear upper arm kits may be modified to fit triangulated brackets on the rear axle.

model trans. These727 and Turbo 400 larger transmissions may require reforming the floor on some models. Any changes must be made with the same weight and gauge material.
