Ever since we had the all new EVO MFG Bolt-On Coil Over kit installed on Rubicat (our new 2012 Dozer Yellow Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon), we’ve had a ton of people ask us about how well it performs. And, rather than just tell people what we think, we thought it might be better to film this kit in action, make a short film highlighting it and let people decide for themselves based on what they see. Of course, we couldn’t think of a better place to put this kit to the test than the world famous, Rubicon Trail.

Email for the video pops up. Supervisor walks by and asks what the hell am i watching. She then sits and watches the whole video and goes "wow that's crazy" and walks away :LOL: Awesome Video as always

Pretty good for a "bottom end" system. :cheesy:

Watching these is love/hate for me...love seeing it, hate that I now want to drop more loot on my jeep. ;)

Wow great video and great editing! I'd better hit those freeway off ramps with my "anything helps" sign so I could get some bolt on cool overs ;)

There's no doubt in my mind that the EVO bolt on cool over system is tough to beat. Look at that wheel travel!

only bottom end when compared to the DTD and price. it's a great system and i personally think that for most people, all they will ever need.

LOL!! i can see it now. :crazyeyes:

the kit really is hard to beat and you don't need to take my word for it. just ask anyone who came on this run with us. :yup:

All of the above! Great video! Great times! Great friends!
I was amazed how well the EVO bolt on coil over system worked on RubiCAT. I need EVO! (not want, need) :-)

Is it a sign of a problem if I've already watched this multiple times? :)

It's only a problem if you downloaded the video and encoded it in HD for the iPhone and looped it with other wayalife videos and watched them over and over. :cheesy: It's an illness if you show them off to all your friends and family knowing fully they won't understand. I'm almost there! :doh:

LOL! I do the latter for sure. The former is well beyond my computer skill set. Me thinks we need to talk though. :cheesy:

These videos are awesome. The coil overs are absolutely amazing. For me, I put the carriage before the horse when I bought the 37's and have a D-30. First I need to wrangle the horse infront of the carriage by getting a ProRock44 then I can look into this system. There is no doubt how great this system works. it's just a matter of time for me.

Thank you for sharing this video Eddie.

Watched it once or twice. Wait, three times. No four. I think it was four. Maybe five. Oh well, I can't remember. I guess I will just watch it again. Excellent work as always! Rubicat rocks!

Is there any chance Eddie that you could post a couple pictures showing how you routed your brakelines front and back. Mine are looking like they will get caught in the coilovers while yours didn't seem to even come close in the video!

thanks in advance!

Awesome video!! :rock::rock:

Great job.
I have what may turn out to be a very annoying noob question. Please forgive me but the last time I worked on a Jeep I was swaping leaf springs. lol
So this kit is the Evo front and rear coilovers as well as the high clearance long arm kit?
Its more than capable on the trail. How does it handle as a daily driver?
Sorry for the elementary questions, just doing my homework before I buy parts. :D

Yes, Eddie is running the high clearance long arm kit with the coilovers. It does not come with them. I am running aftermarket short arms on the front and stock control arms on the back and it flexes like crazy. Also, rides better than stock on the road.
