Fabtech 8" Crawler System for 87-95 Jeep® Wrangler YJ

Catalog #: 16119.510.T
In the late eighties and early nineties the Jeep YJ dominated the trail only to be replaced by the more capable TJ in 1997. Fabtech revitalizes the capability of the YJ with the introduction of our high end 8" Crawler System for 1987-1995 Jeep YJ's. As a bolt on installation this system replaces the factory front leaf springs with our Dirt Logic 2.5 Coilover shocks and tubular Radius Arms as found in our TJ Crawler systems. The rear features a spring over design with Soft Ride Leaf Springs, extended length Shackles and a Floating Traction Bar. This Crawler suspension can be order as a complete system or as a separate front and rear system. Install this Crawler system with our optional high clearance 1/ 4" thick steel transfer case skid pan on your YJ and you'll leave the TJ guys behind.

Front Suspension
Heavy duty 1 /4" thick steel axle and frame bracketry attaches the thick wall adjustable Radius Arms to the factory front axle housing or aftermarket TJ style axles for heavy duty trail use. Large 2" diameter adjustable Radius Arms have a 5/16" thick steel wall with giant 2 5/8" forged link ends for unsurpassed strength and maximum impact resistance. The tubular Coilover system secures to the side of the frame and motor mounts providing a solid structure for the Dirt Logic 2.5 Coilover shock. Installation of these Coilover mounts do not require cutting of the inner fenderwell, keeping mud and water away from the motor. The front system also includes a replacement Trac Bar, Pitman Arm, Quick Disconnect sway bar links, bump stops and more.
Rear Suspension
As an option to the front system our rear suspension design includes a bolt on bracket system converting the leaf springs to the top of the axle. We provide a 4 leaf Soft Ride Leaf Spring with nylon glide pads between each leaf for friction free operation. To work in conjunction with the Soft Ride Leaf Springs we provide extended length boomerang shackles that offer over 14" of wheel travel with superior articulation. A weld on Floating Traction Bar system is included to reduce spring wrap and increase tire traction. This rear system is compatible with the stock axle housing and most aftermarket housings that have been set up with the factory YJ leaf spring pad geometry.
