ABOVE: With a GoPro camera on the other Jeep, we captured Robby on the trail.
I came to find out - and this will be no surprise to anyone in the Jeeplife
scene - that Robby had spent thousands of dollars on this thing. Everything
you could upgrade, replace, or change had been upgraded, replaced, and
changed. This was a serious piece of overlanding equipment. And yet
interestingly, he hadn’t touched his bump stops. Robby had mentioned that
he’d heard poor reports on the hydraulic bump stop replacements that are
common - lots of noise and not a lot of support. He wasn’t interested in
that investment. So when we agreed to test the SumoSprings on his Jeep
probably the best
term is, every confidence in the ride.
ABOVE: This is where Robby added some speed to the trail. Smooth jeeping.
BELOW: Robby (right) scoping the best route before heading down.
he was already intrigued. There’s no way he - there’s no way either of us thought they’d be as impressive as this. Robby even confessed that, “my
bump stops have been a huge part I overlooked. Like, just all the stuff I
have done and I left the bump stops stock. I feel like I probably should have
done them a long time ago.”
People still ask me, ‘how’s those SumoSprings for the Jeep?’ But now my
answer is easy. I use the same phrase Robby does...
it’s a night and day difference.
