Fred Williams, Tech Editor of Petersen’s 4-Wheel & Off-Road Magazine stopped by Zone’s R&D facilities earlier this week with a brand spankin’ new 2012 Jeep Wrangler JK Rubicon. This rig is being built up for the 2012 Ultimate Adventure and will be featuring some pretty radical modification by the time its finished. Fred’s stop at Zone was to get the Zone prototype long arm suspension installed on the JK and swap the stock tires for a set of 35” Nitto Trail Grapplers. In the end, a Zone 4” prototype longarm lift kit with Zone Nitro shocks and stabilizer were installed
