View Full Version : 2017 SEMA Rego 4x4 REX Jeep JK Wrangler

Located in a distant tent in a far corner of the 2017 SEMA show, there lay an awesome new product made specifically for the Jeep JK Wrangler and it's called the REX. Created by a company in Israel called Rego 4x4, it's essentially a IFS / IRS suspension system and while they are far from the first company to try to do this, they are in the first to use a unique and innovative design. In a nutshell, they've taken the concept of portals, mounted them directly to the differential and then ran the axle shafts to the wheels on the opposite side. By doing this, they were able to run much longer shafts and this allowed them to obtain a significantly greater amount of vertical travel - an impressive 20" of vertical travel!

As I been told, Rego 4x4 literally pulled their prototype off a Jeep they have in Israel, shipped it here to Las Vegas, bought a new JK a few days ago and then bolted on the kit just before the show. Yes, you heard right, the kit is designed to be bolted on to the JK frame - check it out!

Here's a short video that Rego 4x4 made in Israel that shows how their suspension system works. Notice how the JK looks a lot like a side-by-side out on the trail

I tried to pressure a price out of them but they really have no idea as of yet. A lot of this is because they need to partner up with U.S. manufacturers before they could really say. Right now, the setup you see is built off of a Toyota diff but they know in America, Jeepers would want to use something like a Dana 60 or the like. Either way, their hope is to make it cost comparable to a high end axle upgrade with coil overs - think ProRocks and DTD pricing.

Assuming they can partner up with a company like Dana, you would be able to run any gear ratio made for it.

I'm pretty sure it's steel but if you think about it, the IFS eliminates a crazy heavy SOLID axle and depending on your build, heavy long arms. Typically, IFS is lighter than a solid axle setup even with all that you're seeing.

First, I have to say how impressed I am with the self contained, bolt on style of the kit. It looks to have a lot of creative, as well as, functional design and strength.
I would like to see how larger tire sizes, 40+, affect the overall movement and articulation of such a design.
Second, well I'm truy impressed and more than a little interested. Will keep my eyes and ears open for where this company goes.
Already jealous as to your comment on the military version you got to see Eddie.
Thank you for the great pictures and commentary.

Yeah, I get the travel, but I thought the solid axle was a selling point to the Jeep. If you're out blasting the desert I get it, but it seems to me that the IFS doesn't perform as well on the rocks.

Why? If you think about it, our current axles are connected to our Jeeps with bolts. Bolts on the suspension ans steering components are all that are holding them in place now. By the looks of the blow up diagram.in the video, likely the same amount of bolts hold that together.

Portals on a solid axle at the wheel ends don't do great at higher speeds mainly due to suspension geometry. If u thunk about it both upper and lower control arms are well above the centerline of the wheel. So it puts some weird forces on the arms. Even at slower speeds their are tremendous forces on the control arms that are different than a normal setup. Works fine for crawlers and tons of extra clearance. Now on ifs it's not the same issue. There are thousands of h1s and humvees running around with that setup. In this case it is very innovative how they are using the portals to flatten out the shaft angles and allow longer shafts.

Typically portals flip the direction of rotation unless they are 3 gear portals which they could be. Or since it's based on a Toyota diff that has a 3rd maybe they are just flipped like you do with a rear engine setup to get the correct rotation. Either way I dig it!

I totally did it too if only because of how innovative it is. I see a lot of potential with this design. It's funny because they started designing this system for a side-by-side but thought there might be a market for Jeeps too.

Not sure what parts and gizmos you're referring to. Once bolted up or welded on, the brackets aren't going anywhere. The A-arms have joints just like control arms and there are plenty of different ones for them. Assuming they're able to get Dana or a company like that to work with them, the ring and pinion would be the same as any other Dana axle. The portals are new and the shafts would be different but not like anyone would have spares for my XD60 or ProRock 80.

I asked them about this and they would be the first to admit that the rear was just a "solution" they could work out quickly. I think initially, they were just working on IFS to be run with a solid rear axle but then wanted to take it all the way so that they could really test things out. I would imagine that the ultimate end product would look different.

The shaft length on this front end is HUGE, having them cross under the differential is an awesome idea. I wonder if they have helical cut gears in the portals or straight cut. With the additional set of gears you would be able to run a relatively low number (higher ratio) gear in the diff (similar to HMMWV).

I think it would be fun to watch a rig with this set up front and rear do some crawling.

I'm thinking if it is strong enough to handle rocks, and with a Dana 60 and upgraded axles, I would think it would be strong enough, Maybe not rock bouncing but most every thing else. My only concern would be the strength of the portal boxes. Plus combined with a 3 or 4 speed transfer case, you could have a bad-ass sand Jeep/rock crawler all in one package. :cool:

That is a really really neat idea and out-of-the-box thinking. I'm curious about droop on the front axle because of the axle shaft on the one side and the cross brace. Not sure how rear leading arms would ride. You could definitely either flip it or run something like the front axle. I look forward to seeing where this goes but will be way out of my price range unless I win the lottery.

Really cool design! It would be even cooler if they could fit a ProRock in there. Hope this evolves into something

Hi there,
I am new to this forum, saw the thread and wanted to join in..

I saw the jeep first hand.
I can tell you the car drives beautifully.. it handles a lot better then regular solid axles jeep, not only on rocks but in every tarrain..
It is so smooth you can compare it to driving a citroen if you know what i am talking about..

I am not part of the company but know the owners, so if you have any questions that are not shown in their video\website - i will be happy to try and answer them for you.
Who knows - maybe JEEP people will see this somehow and like it - the new wrangler version might have that suspension installed in the factory..

Welcome to Wayalife. Why'd you post this this morning, then delete it, and repost the same thing again now? I'm confused. :thinking:

For the rear - are you able to use a factory gas tank or does this require moving to a fuel cell?
What would be max tire size clearance or are there options to be able to gain more clearance and run larger sized (ie - 40" tires)?

I can only take the guys who made it at their word but they were telling me that they could literally drink a cup of coffee on terrain that the solid axles that came on their Jeep would put in their lap. I believe it.

LOL!
That's the reason 2dr Wrangler never had cup holders ! ( I kid, I kid..)

Yeah.
I have been thinking about swapping in front TTB from a F250 for a while, just to make commuting BETTER and gain durability offroad from the DANA SFA.

Wow! I love it! Ive been all for an IFS Wrangler for a while now, and this looks to be well thought out and 20Ē of travel is nuts!

I'm not allowed to post it but I got to see a military version of this and holy hell, it's was badass.

The military version is available on REGO's webpage an other sites....
I've seen a demo during a mil equip show.
Luckily, we're neighbors too ;)

LOL!! All they did was take the video Rego4x4 was playing at the show, took out what was playing on it, added their own music and their logo. :crazyeyes:

Sad that certain people do that. Seems to happen a lot these days. They take someone else's work, slap a watermark or logo on it and call it their own. No shame.

Located in a distant tent in a far corner of the 2017 SEMA show, there lay an awesome new product made specifically for the Jeep JK Wrangler and it's called the REX. Created by a company in Israel called Rego 4x4, it's essentially a IFS / IRS suspension system and while they are far from the first company to try to do this, they are in the first to use a unique and innovative design. In a nutshell, they've taken the concept of portals, mounted them directly to the differential and then ran the axle shafts to the wheels on the opposite side. By doing this, they were able to run much longer shafts and this allowed them to obtain a significantly greater amount of vertical travel - an impressive 20" of vertical travel!

As I been told, Rego 4x4 literally pulled their prototype off a Jeep they have in Israel, shipped it here to Las Vegas, bought a new JK a few days ago and then bolted on the kit just before the show. Yes, you heard right, the kit is designed to be bolted on to the JK frame - check it out!

Here's a short video that Rego 4x4 made in Israel that shows how their suspension system works. Notice how the JK looks a lot like a side-by-side out on the trail

I'd be really interested in hearing what you all think of this :yup:

With SEMA right around the corner, I wonder what ever became of Rego 4x4?

Great thread revival. I have been wondering the same thing. This whole concept really captured my interest.
Thanks Brute

I'm surprised no one brought this up in the recent discussion on IFS

This looks like an IFS set up that would work.
