Living Up to Their Name: Rock Krawler's 4899 Race Car
When it comes to Jeep suspension, one name stands for exactly what it does. Based out of Waterford, New York, Rock Krawler Suspension is a leading manufacturer of Jeep suspension parts for everything from the YJ to the JK platform. Naturally, the owner of the company, Jeremy Purick, brought his 4899 race car out to Easter Jeep Safari this year to see how it handles the red rocks. He takes pride in the fact that many of the components on this car are off-the-shelf parts that his company sells to the public — a true testament to their performance.
The 4899 car, based mostly off a JK platform, is unique in that it fits the bill for many descriptions. The single coilover-bypass shocks can be used in the Legends class at King of The Hammers, while the car itself can compete in other classes such as Jeepspeed. The 40-inch Nitto Trail Grapplers on Method Race Wheels Beadlocks also work phenomenally in the Ultra4 class. Jeremy believes having the ability to test the parts on this rig in each of these segments is the best way prove their performance.
