May 6, 2015 wayoflife 0

Over the weekend, our good friend Adam (OverlanderJK) came up to Camp WAYALIFE to get away from the hustle and bustle of SoCal living and spend a few days relaxing and wheeling with us up here in beautiful Northern Nevada. While he was up here, he agreed to let us use his 2-door JK to install a set of new Rock Krawler Triple Rate coils that had been sent out to us a while back for testing.

ARB High Output On-Board Air Compressor Under the Hood JK Installation Write-Up

June 2, 2013 Cindy 50

Airing down your tires for the trail is an essential part of off-roading and one that will give you significantly better traction on the rocks and will also offer a much more comfortable ride. However, getting your tires aired back up at the end of the day can be somewhat of a problem especially if you’re still a ways off from a gas station with a working air compressor. Of course, the best solution to this problem is to bring your own source of air but a good hard mounted compressor or CO2 air tank can take up a lot of space inside your Jeep and most of the basic portable units simply don’t have what it takes to fill up four over sized tires in a reasonable amount of time. And, that’s why we decided to get an ARB High Output On-Board Air Compressor for our old 2009 Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited.

MAINTENANCE: Jeep JK Wrangler
Differential Fluid Service Write-Up

May 22, 2013 wayoflife 108
Changing the fluid in your Jeep JK Wrangler’s differentials is an important part of routine maintenance. New gear oil will insure your differentials will be properly lubricated and functioning properly. And, unlike previous Jeep Wranglers, you will not need to pop open the differential cover in order to perform this maintenance. Granted, I do recommend that you do so anyway from time to time (every other fluid change) as it will give you a chance to inspect the gears within it for any damage or unsual wear.

JK Mirror Mod – Fix Your Drippy Mirror Write-Up

April 28, 2013 wayoflife 0

The first Jeep JK Wranglers came with mirrors that had a way of collecting water from rain or being washed and trapping it inside up against your doors – not a good thing. Later JK’s saw improvements to the mirrors which included a small notch at the bottom of the flange and, while it did help water to drain out, it was still a bit too small and had a tendency to get clogged up with dirt and debris. To fix this, a bigger drain hole is needed and this easy to do mod will help you to make one.

Cobra 29 CB Radio Installation Write-Up
2007-10 Jeep JK Wrangler

March 14, 2013 Cindy 8

Over the years, I have installed and tested out a few different CB Radios of different makes and models and while they all did the job, they all lack options that I wanted and their performance was always just okay at best. In fact, some were difficult to hear, a couple were temperamental and others simply died after a short amount of use. Needless to say, when it came time to look for a new CB Radio for our Orange Jeep JK Wrangler, I decided to do some research and if necessary, spend a bit more money to get a better product. And, what I finally ended up getting was a Cobra 29, or more specifically, the LTD BT version of it.

LoD Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited Signature Series Rock Sliders Installation Write-Up

March 1, 2013 Cindy 15

More times than not, the best line you can take through a technical section of trail will require you to use your tires to climb up and over big obstacles. Of course, by doing this, your rocker panels quickly become the lowest point on your Jeep JK Wrangler and if left unprotected, you leave the door wide open for significant body damage. It is for this reason that I always recommend a good set of rocker guards or, “rock sliders? as a must have upgrade and only second to a set of tow points front and rear.
