The revised suspension features Fox jounce shocks. Think of it as a shock within a shock that can absorb hard hits without compromising overall ride quality.

The Mojave even has a better approach angle than the Rubicon thanks to its 1-inch front lift: 44.7 degrees compared with 43.4 degrees in the Rubi.

The Mojave gets Jeep's Command-Trac technology with a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio. This means it can run faster in low range, making dunes easier to climb.
