Adventure Series Shocks at Shock Surplus

Posted

Adventure. That word alone can convey that you’re up for anything and that you have the wheels to back up the claim. If you have the Fox 2.0 Adventure Series shocks installed on your vehicle, it’s just assumed that you are probably a serious off-roader who knows exactly what equipment will make your vehicle perform at maximum capacity. It’s why you get your shocks at Shock Surplus - you also know who to trust when you want to jack your ride. 

Previously, Fox offered the Evolution Series shocks, which were only available for Jeep Wranglers. Those shocks were discontinued without much fanfare or explanation; however, they’ve been reborn, better than ever, as the 2.0 Adventure series. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with the first set of these babies on the market and we’ve got the 411 on why these shocks are the best in the business. 

Doing a side-by-side comparison of the discontinued Evolution shocks with the hot new Adventure Series, you’ll see that they look as if they perform the exact same way. Why change the appearance if it’s about what is on the inside that counts? From the specifications afforded to the new and improved Fox shocks, the Adventure Series Shocks look just like this: 

  • 2.0" Smooth bore and honed seamless alloy bodies - the shock body on another popular Fox shock - the 2.0 Performance - is a brushed aluminum, which makes the old shocks handle a little less smooth on the on-road side. The Adventure Series is instead a steel body that offers a smoother on-road ride and strong off-road handling. Trust us when we say they’re smooth as the off-roading equivalent to butter. Seriously, you’ve got to try them.
  • Thick silver powder coat - resists corrosion and rust. Without the proper protection from all types of weather, your shocks won’t last as long as you need them to. But this new coating is sure to protect your shocks so you ride them until their last breath.
  • A specialized internal IFP mono-tube reservoir design separates shock oil from the high-pressure nitrogen charged gas chamber. With the right lubrication from within, you’ll get more for your money. See? We told you it’s what’s on the inside that counts.
  • 5/8" hard chrome plated heat-treated alloy steel shaft - heat treating the steel and chrome plating it helps prevent scratching and pitting that can come from off-roading, and can damage the seals on the shaft. Chrome also adds increased strength and rigidity. The ⅝” shaft is large, and allows for more rigidity and greater strength. With these new shocks, you can set out on the next challenge without issue.
  • Quiet Nitrile rubber allows for increased suspension articulation.
  • Direct replacement for both stock and aftermarket lift kits. This is where the aftermarket buy starts, with a new product you don’t want to wait for any longer.

And if you look at the specs for the now-nonexistent Evolution Series, you’ll see that they look about the same, but for one big difference. Where the Evolution shocks were only made to fit 2007-2017 Jeep Wranglers, the Adventure Series allows a bigger family of vehicles to benefit from their superior performance. Do you own one of these vehicles listed below? If you do, then the Adventure Series is what you’re looking for:

  • 2001-2010 GM 2500 / 3500
  • 1994-2002 Dodge 2500 / 3500
  • 2003-2012 Dodge 2500 / 3500
  • 2005-2016 Ford F250 / F350
  • 1997-2006 Jeep Wrangler TJ / LJ
  • 2007-2016 Jeep Wrangler JK
  • 1984-2001 Jeep Wrangler XJ

The 2.0 Adventure Series shocks are bolt-on, and because they are designed for specific vehicle types, they don’t require you to make any modifications before installing them. Once you install them and take them for a test drive, you’ll feel the difference, both on-road and off. This shock is made to give you the ultimate in functionality - ride quality when you’re on the road, and consistency and balance for a safe but thrilling off road experience. The internal floating piston (IFP) allows for the performance of the shocks to remain unchanged across a variety of weather conditions and temperatures, again, to ensure that your ride is exactly what you’re looking for.

The 2.0 Adventure Series use Fox’s “proven damping technology” - which means that when you’re in your prime off-roading location, you’re going to feel less of the rough terrain you’re conquering because feeling of the back and forth motion is reduced in order to overcome the friction and smooth out your off road ride, no matter the terrain. Off roaders start with a few specific types of locations just to ease into it, but with these new Fox shocks you won’t have to break them in. If you’re looking for shocks that will give you everything that you want in an off-road experience, paired with handling and comfort for your on-road drive times, the Fox Adventure Series 2.0 is what you want. 

This product is new, so it hasn’t been on the market for long, but we have it in stock like everything else you want. If you’re still not sure if these Fox shocks are the best option for you and your vehicle, our specialists are standing by waiting for your call. At Shock Surplus, we’re about presenting you with quality products that can take the toughest rides just like you. We also want to make sure that you feel confident in every purchase you make with us.
