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

    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.

    Damn that’s impressive! Can’t wait to see the future of this product.

    Literally, the most impressive thing I've seen at SEMA in a long time - if only because of its thinking outside of the box approach to things.

    that's engineering... wonder how much it'll cost

    Also wonder how the longer axle shafts will hold up on the rocks in 4Lo

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
