When Mike Kim, Off-road Suspension Engineer for Off-road Power Products, purchased his Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon earlier this year he set out to design a reliable off-road suspension package for the Wrangler JK while keeping the price attainable for the average consumer. Mike’s goal for the Off-road Power Products (OPP) designed Jeep Wrangler JK suspension system was to reliably run 37” tires while keeping the Jeep as low as possible.

The ability to use 37” off-road tires on a Jeep Wrangler JK usually means the owner would need to install a 3.5” lift kit at a minimum. Mike said “This makes the rig top heavy and uncomfortable to side hill in.” Wanting to reduce the chances of a roll-over in his Jeep Wrangler JK Mike Kim designed a proprietary 2.5” lift kit with custom wound Eibach coil springs. The OPP kit moves the shock mounts to fit 11” travel shocks at all four corners.

While Mike was at it, he installed ARB air lockers and cromoly axle shafts. The underside of the Jeep Wrangler JK Unlimited is almost completely flat thanks to the under belly skid plate system and other body armor pieces Mike installed. Of his Jeep, Mike said “OPP is different from a lot of companies because we actually use our marketing vehicles. We’re not afraid to get scratches and dings on the trail. It gives them character.”

Mike Kim looked to AEM for Jeep Wrangler JK cold air intake system, number 21-8316DS, because the sealed air filter box keeps out heat, mud, and water when off-roading

Because turning 37” tires is no easy task, Mike Kim looked to AEM for a Jeep Wrangler JK cold air intake system. Mike Kim has known of AEM since the late 1990’s. “Back then AEM was mostly a tuner car company but it has always been regarded as a high quality manufacturer. When AEM asked if my Jeep would be available for SEMA I was happy to say yes,” said Kim. Mike installed AEM cold air intake 21-8316DS on his Jeep Wrangler JK and says “I’ve been happy with the system on my Jeep as it’s sealed to keep the hot engine air out, but also because it helps protect the filter from mud and water.”
