"Cal,
Some shots of our recent Canning Stock Route trip.
The stock route itself is 2000km in length between Wiluna and Halls Creek - all up we did 4500km including transit to Wiluna and back down the west coast of WA from Broome back home to Bunbury.
The stock route is not maintained at all and has severe corrugations for lengthy stretches of up to 100km.
The jeep, a JK Wrangler Rubicon SWB, carried a heavy load with 250 litres of fuel plus water and all the essentials for camping.
We only had 3 weeks for the entire trip so we had to keep moving in order to meet the tight timeframe.

The suspension kit I purchased from you performed flawlessly - the most severe corrugations were tackled fairly aggressively and the shocky temperatures were monitored, however no problems were encountered at all.

Others however did not fare so well - we encountered a number of vehicles that had suffered broken springs, failed shock absorbers, failed air adjustable suspension and broken steering components.

I was particularly impressed by the ability of the jeep to handle the toughest going fully loaded while still maintaining good speed and handling despite corrugations, deeply rutted sandhills and harsh rocky sections.

Importantly after the trip the vehicle showed no ill effects with the suspension returning immediately to normal height once unloaded.

I have no hesitation in recommending your suspension system to anyone that is looking to prepare their vehicle for serious outback travel.

Regards, John T "
