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

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.

Jeep JK Wrangler Axle Breather Hose Extension

In addition to installing things like longer sway bar links and brake line extension brackets, when you lift your Jeep JK Wrangler to a height of 3″ or more, it’s a good idea to extend your rear axle breather hose as well. If you don’t, you may find that the hose will get pulled off the axle when flexing out on the trail.

Jeep JK Wrangler Rear Axle Shaft
Removal & Installation Write-Up

Over the last 6 years, I have found the factory rear axle shafts to be surprisingly strong. In fact, I can honestly say that rear axle shaft breaks are actually pretty uncommon. However, because the factory Dana 44 is a semi-float axle, a bent flange is something that is pretty common and when that happens, it is a good idea to replace your shafts.

Rock Lights – Walmart Platinum Burner
Installation Write-Up

February 19, 2013 Cindy 5

Rock lights are essentially small lights that you can mount under your fenders and behind the grill so that they can effectively illuminate the ground immediately in front of your tires but without blinding your spotter. Right now, LED lights seem to be all the rage but, most are either cheap and unreliable or, are way too expensive for my taste. And, even the more expensive ones suffer from putting out way too little useable light. And, that’s why I decided to install a set of Walmart Platinum Burners.

Bleeding Your Brakes on a Jeep JK Wrangler

January 27, 2013 Cindy 7

Whether you’ve just installed a set of new brake lines or worked on your brake system in a way that required you to disconnect any of your brake lines, it is absolutely necessary that you bleed your brakes before you drive your Jeep JK Wrangler.

Truck-Lite Jeep JK Wrangler LED Headlight
Installation Write-Up & Testing

January 25, 2013 Cindy 25

While the Jeep JK Wrangler is without a doubt, the best off road vehicle ever made, the headlights it comes with from the factory are anything but. In fact, I’d have to say that they are the one thing that everyone I know who owns a JK, hates about it. The light they provide are a sickly yellow at best, are really only focused at one point and do very little to fill in the road immediately in front of you. In fact, it is for that reason this that most people who own a JK tend to always use their fog lights in conjunction to their headlights and, are always in search of a good replacement.
