Rusty's Rigs - Jose Perez

The Base

  • Owner: Jose Perez @zoomzoomjr
  • Year & Model: 2001 WJ Grand Cherokee
  • Engine/Transmission: Built 4.0 and 42re
  • Why Rusty's Off-Road: I saw a episode of extreme 4x4 and they built a WJ with a Rusty’s kit and they had nothing but positive things to say about them. Once I was in the market for a lift I knew I had to have a Rusty’s off road kit! I have had absolutely ZERO problems with the kit spring rate and shock damping are beautiful straight out the box! I recommend this lift to everyone in the market for one.
