Old Man Emu BP-51 High Performance Shock Kit for 18-19 Jeep Wrangler JL

Quadratec Part #: 16090.4255
Improve performance and handling in your Jeep Wrangler JL with the Old Man Emu BP-51 High Performance Shock Kit. This complete shock kit is designed for use with Sport and Sahara models with 3.5” of lift, or Rubicons with 2.5” of lift. BP-51 shocks are fully adjustable, so you can tune them to your terrain and driving style. The high-flow design, remote reservoirs, and aluminum bodies keep the shocks cool and fade free. By mounting the remote reservoir behind the headlight buckets, Old Man Emu keeps the wheel wells clear for increased suspension articulation. The lower shock mounts feature a built-in skid plate for added off-road protection.

Vehicle Specific Kit: Old Man Emu designed this kit for use with the Jeep Wrangler JL. The front remote reservoirs mount behind the headlight bucket on both halogen and LED models.

Lift Height: For use with 2.5” of lift on JL Rubicons, and 3.5” of lift on JL Sports and Saharas.

High Flow Bypass Ports: By using 51mm kidney bypass ports, Old Man Emu’s BP-51 shocks have a maximum oil volume for increased performance and cooling.

Aluminum Construction: The BP-51 shock body and reservoir are made from high-grade 6061 T6 aluminum. Old Man Emu uses this alloy because of its corrosion resistance and heat dissipating properties.

High-Flow: For an unrestricted flow of oil, the BP-51 shocks feature DASH-6 high-temperature Teflon hoses with high-flow fittings.

Durable Bushings: To improve ride comfort and reduce road noise, Old Man Emu uses oversized rubber bushings.

Abrasion & Corrosion Resistant: BP-51 shocks are coated in type-3 40-micron hard-anodizing. This heavy-duty finish is resistant to oxidation and stone damage. The BP-51 shocks also feature a replaceable shaft guard for additional protection.

Position Sensitive Damping: By using an internal bypass, shim controlled, position-sensitive damping, the BP-51 automatically adjusts depending on the shock’s compression. At ride height, they provide a comfortable ride, and at the ends of the shock travel they increase responsiveness and control.

Fully Adjustable: Both compression and rebound are independently adjustable on BP-51 shocks. The adjustments are external, and can be changed without removing the shocks from the vehicle.

Remote Reservoir: To increase oil volume, the BP-51 utilizes a remote reservoir design with aluminum anodized-floating piston and high-pressure nitrogen.
