    JK Coilovers

    Hey guys,

    Iím looking to convert my JKU to a coilover setup. Iím looking at either the EVO bolt-on coilovers or the Rock Krawler Trailrunner coilover kit. Who runs either one of these kits and which one is better? They seem to be about the same price. Iím running Teraflex longarms with a Dynatrac Pro60 in the front and a Prorock80 in the rear.

    It's a Wayalife!

    Iíll suggest EVO mostly because I donít have personal experience with the RK setup. Know that the Kings only come in black now if you order the EVO kit.

    Bubba, Are they black coils or just the little bit black on the bodies with the blue coils? Thanks

    The ends are anodized black, slider is black, and the stickers are black. I havenít actually opened the box yet and looked at the springs but I think theyíre still blue. I have an install next week so Iíll know for sure then.

    well i have the Evo offroad coilovers and cant fault them.

    From doing slow rock crawling too doing 100KPH+ offroad they are great but i would say get some hydro bump stops.

    My coils came blue. I had to get them powder coated.

    I requested custom colors and they still woudn't do the springs black.

    I can add to this! I got them yesterday and couldn't wait to open them. Black ends, black slider, blue springs. Let me know if you want any other pics.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
