Throttle Out | How to Choose Shocks for Your Jeep Wrangler

Side-by-Side Off-Road Comparison | Twin-Tube v. Monotube v. Reservoir

PAOLI, Pa. (March 12th, 2019) – In this episode of ExtremeTerrain’s (XT) “Throttle Out” YouTube series, Ryan Huck visits Teraflex in West Jordan, Utah to talk all about Jeep Wrangler shocks. From piston size and valving, to materials and real-world testing, Ryan spends some one-on-one time with Teraflex’s Chief Technology Officer, Paul Cox, to discuss the three different shock styles before testing them out for himself in the frozen Utahan wilderness.

“Shocks have always been a bit of a magical black box to most people. We know that some shocks are “better” than others but this was a great opportunity to get a first-hand look into why, by seeing how they’re built. Hopefully this video will help people understand what they’re buying when shopping for new shocks!”—Ryan Huck

 

Products tested include: Teraflex 9550 VSS Twin-Tube Shock Absorbers, Teraflex Falcon Series 2.1 Monotube Shocks, and Teraflex Falcon Series 3.3 Adjustable Piggyback Shocks.

Throttle Out | Can Ryan’s Stock JL Keep Up With his Modded TJ Offroad?

TJ VS JL Wrangler at Rausch Creek Off-Road Park

PAOLI, Pa. (February 6th, 2019) – In the latest edition of ExtremeTerrain’s (XT) “Throttle Out” YouTube Series, XT host Ryan Huck visits Rausch Creek Off-Road Park in Pine Grove, PA with his new, stock, 2.0L-powered 2018 JL Wrangler 2-door and his trusty, heavily-modified, 1998 TJ Wrangler to give them a proper shake down while comparing how each performs on the trail.

Ryan has had his TJ since he earned his license over 16 years ago and it was his daily driver until recently, when he purchased his new JL. His TJ has been through several iterations of lift kits and is functionally modified with all the supporting components needed to handle even the toughest of trails. On the other hand, his new JL Wrangler is bone-stock, for the time being, but is equipped with more technology and modern architecture, making for an interesting comparison to his old TJ on the trail. Which one would you choose to take out on your local trail?

“We knew at the start that the TJ would be able to out-wheel the JL, but I was excited to see what the stock JL could do and I wasn’t disappointed!  It was great to have both of my Jeeps out on the trail and it made me look forward to building my JL even more.” –Ryan Huck
