JK Mirror Mod - Fix Your Drippy Mirror Write-Up

April 28th, 2013

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.

Installation Write-Up

February 12th, 2013

If you've just installed a suspension lift and a set of bigger tires on your Jeep JK Wrangler and are still getting a bit of fender rub at a full flex, one of the easiest ways to address it is to install a 1" body lift.

Rock Hard 4×4 Parts Jeep JK Wrangler
Sport Cage Installation Write-Up

November 25th, 2012

Of the options out there, I personally would recommend the one made by Rock Hard 4x4 Parts. In addition to being reasonably priced, I have found that the Rock Hard Sport Cage to be one of the easiest options to install and to be one that makes no noise.

Because you never know when you're gonna need a little extra light, I like to carry a good MagLite flashlight with me in my JK.

Tuffy Security Conceal Carry
Underseat Drawer Installation Write-Up

June 28th, 2011

Keeping your valuables out of sight and secure in Jeep JK Wrangler can prove to be a real challenge. Even with your doors installed, a soft top offers little to no protection from would be thieves and, that's why I always recommend Tuffy Security Products. Of course, if you've already got their locking glove box, center console and rear deck installed and are looking for just a bit more secure and convenient to use storage space, I would highly recommend that you get their Conceal Carry Drawer.

OR-FAB Jeep JK Wrangler 2007-2010
Sport Cage Installation Write-Up

June 06th, 2011

While the Jeep JK Wrangler does come with a roll bar right from the factory and one that actually holds up pretty well, it's definitely something that could still benefit from a bit more support. Because a full custom weld in cage can be quite expensive to have installed and, is for the most part well more than what most people need, the addition of a sport cage like the kind that OR-FAB makes is what I might recommend instead.

Bushwacker JK Flat Fender Installation Write-Up

July 11th, 2010

Opening up your fenders and providing more clearance is by far the easiest ways to get your Jeep JK Wrangler sitting on top of much larger tires and without too much effort. And, while there are several options available to do this including trimming your factory fenders or installing a set of steel tube fenders, nothing I have seen to date compares to the new Flat Style Fender Flares made by Bushwacker.

Tuffy Security Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited
Security Deck Enclosure Installation Write-Up

May 13th, 2010

Tuffy Security Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited Security Deck Enclosure Installation Write-Up Driving your Jeep JK Wrangler the way it was designed to be driven, both doorless and topless, is exhilarating, liberating and of course, a whole lot of fun. Unfortunately, driving your Jeep like this can also leave you with virtually no way to lock up and store valuable possessions if needed. Sure, you've got your glove box or center console but, even if they've been beefed up with a steel Tuffy Security solution, you're still limited to only small objects. What if you have something big you need to lock up - maybe something that can only fit in the trunk area of your Jeep? Fortunately for us, Tuffy Security has an answer for that as well and it's with their JK Security Deck Enclosure.

Rancho Jeep JK Wrangler Rock Gear
Tube Doors Installation Write-Up

May 05th, 2010

In my opinion, what's a Jeep JK Wrangler good for if you aren't taking the top and doors off the minute it's warm enough to do so. I mean, it's a Jeep and they need to breath right? Now, I know there are some of you out there that feel a little uncomfortable riding around town or the highway without anything present to help keep you in or, maybe it's your significant other who feels this way. Whatever the case might be, what I would recommend is that you pick up a set of Rancho Rock Gear Tube Doors.

TeraFlex Quick Disconnect
JK Mud Flaps Installation Write-Up

April 17th, 2010

For those of you who don't know me, my white Jeep JK Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited is currently sitting on top of exceptionally large 40x15.50 Toyo Mud Terrain Tires. And, after having been pulled over twice for not having any mud flaps (a requirement here in the state of California), the 2nd time resulting in a fix-it ticket, I realized that something needed to be done. Obviously, installing a set of mud flaps was the answer but from what I have personally seen on other rigs wearing a set, off-roading with them on will get them torn off in a hurry. What I needed was a set of mud flaps that could be worn on pavement and removed quickly when I was ready to hit the trail and fortuantely, TeraFlex makes exactly what I needed.

Jeep JK Wrangler Factory Fender Chop

February 11th, 2009

Even after installing a tall suspension lift, fender rub is a common problem that many Jeep owners suffer from especially if you're running wide tires and/or have wheels with very little backspacing. Now, the easy answer to fixing this problem would be to install taller bump stop extensions, add more suspension lift or maybe install a body lift. However, by going higher, you also raise your Jeep's center of gravity and that isn't going to do a whole lot to help you out on the trail. So, what is one to do? I say, chop your fenders!

Project-JK Decal Application Write-Up

May 01st, 2008

Although the application of vinyl decals is pretty straight forward and easy to do, getting them on right, positioned correctly and without any wrinkles or bubbles the first time around can be somewhat tricky. That is, unless you know how to do it right. Granted, I have no doubts that there are a plethora of different ways to apply decals, but this method has always worked for me and the easy to follow step by step instructions below should help you get yours on without any fuss. Of course, this write-up is for the application of the Project-JK logo decal, it will also work for any decal that you apply on your Jeep JK Wrangler.

Affordable Jeep JK Wrangler Grab Handles

June 22nd, 2007

With all the improvements and additions that have been designed into the all new Jeep JK Wrangler, I really am surprised that a decent set of overhead grab handles weren't included in the design. For the most part, this is no big deal as there are plenty of good aftermarket solutions for the front passengers like the velcro grab handles that MasterCraft makes but with the sound bar being located where it is, finding a good solution for the rear has been a bit tougher.
