Sprint Booster Jeep JK Wrangler
Installation Write-Up & Review

May 9, 2011 Cindy 14
Having come from a background of CJ’s, TJ’s and XJ’s that all came with nice torquey 258 or 4.0L I-6 engines, it was hard for me to get used to the lathargic 3.8L V6 that the JK’s come with. Granted, my previous Jeeps may not have been speed demons but, at least wanted to get up and go as soon as you hit the gas. More than the motor, the problem with lag that the JK’s have comes from the fact that they now come with an ETC or electric Throttle Control. And, while there are solutions available that can help address this lag by allowing you to reprogram your computer, there is another solution that does a great job of helping out as well – Sprint Booser.

Rock Krawler JK Heavy Duty Deep Sump
Automatic Transmission Pan Installation Write-Up

January 18, 2011 Cindy 1
While the Jeep JK Wrangler comes with great skid plate right from the factory that actually does a job of protecting your 42RLE Automatic Transmission, it does have a way of getting in the way of your drive shaft if you have a 3″ or taller lift installed. Because of this problem, there are a lot of people choose to remove this skid plate but, by doing this, you leave the thin transmission sump pan dangerously exposed to rocks. For those of you who have a long arm kit installed on your JK, removing your transmission skid plate is a requirement. So, what is one to do? Well for me, I decided to get a Rock Krawler heavy duty replacement deep sump transmission pan.

TeraFlex Jeep JK Wrangler
Elka Suspension Reservoir Shocks

November 9, 2010 Cindy 3
Elka Suspension, a long time manufacturer of performance ATV products has recently turned their sights onto the Jeep JK Wrangler and, with the help of TeraFlex, has developed a high quality reservoir shock made specifically for it. And, after running them for a few months now, here’s what I can tell you about them.

Jeep JK Wrangler Coast Front 1310
Drive Shaft Installation Write-Up

October 20, 2010 Cindy 29
In addition to things like taller coils, longer shocks and adjustable control arms and track bars, a new 1310 or 1350 double cardin U-Joint style front drive shaft is something that you really should have in your list of needed parts if you plan on lifting your Jeep JK Wrangler 3" or more and you have an automatic transmission. While the factory front drive shaft isn’t all that bad, its diameter is very wide and at 3" of lift or more, it will get hung up on the automatic transmission skid plate (limiting your droop) and its spline shaft boot will catch on the lip of your transmission sump pan causing it to tear.

TeraFlex MONSTER Jeep JK Wrangler
Rear Track Bar Installation Write-Up

September 13, 2010 Cindy 10
Installing a lift of any height on your Jeep JK Wrangler will cause your axles to shift from center. Up front, your axle will shift over to the driver side and in the rear, it will shift over to the passenger side. This shift occurs because your factory track bars are fixed in their length and are attached to only one side of your Jeep’s frame rails and to the axle on the opposite side. As your Jeep goes up, your axles will get pulled to the side of where your track bar is mounted on the frame.

Hanson Stubby Front Stinger Bumper Installation Write-Up

September 9, 2010 Cindy 3
When it comes to heavy duty steel formed bumpers, few companies have the history of excellence and reputation of quality that Hanson Offroad enjoys today. Made entirely here in the USA, you can be sure that all Hanson bumpers are crafted with care and are ready to take just about any punishment you can subject it to. Of course, when I heard that Hanson had released a brand new stubby front bumper with a stinger for the JK, I knew that it was something I had to see it. And, once I did, I knew right then and there that it was the bumper that was going to go on our Sunburst Orange JK.

Bushwacker JK Flat Fender Installation Write-Up

July 11, 2010 Cindy 18
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.

TeraFlex Jeep JK Wrangler
Speed Bumps Installation Write-Up

May 26, 2010 Cindy 3
Teraflex Jeep JK Wrangler Speed Bumps If you like to drive hard and fast down chewed up desert roads and washes, you know just how bone jarring of a ride it can be especially when your factory bump stops make full contact with your axles. And, short of installing a very expensive coil over suspension system on your Jeep JK Wrangler, there really hasn’t been a whole lot you could do to soften things up or, at least not until now.

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

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 5, 2010 Cindy 5
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.

Jeep JK Wrangler Door Removal

April 29, 2010 Cindy 26
Without a doubt, there really is, only one Jeep. Unlike any other vehicle available today, a Jeep Wrangler is the only one that’s specifically designed to perform exceptionally well off road and right out of the box. Of course, another key feature that makes a Jeep so unique is the fact that above and beyond being a convertable, it’s also purposefully built to have it’s doors removed as well. In this configuration, the Jeep finds its true identity as an individual – it’s not a car, not a van, not a truck and most certianly, not an SUV.

TeraFlex Quick Disconnect
JK Mud Flaps Installation Write-Up

April 17, 2010 Cindy 9
For those of you who don’t know me, my white Jeep JK Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited is currently sitting on top of exceptionally large 40×15.50 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.
