|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 I decided to get an ARB High Output On-Board Air Compressor.
|I have always been a fan of the factory scissor jack that comes standard with a Jeep JK Wrangler as it is compact, easy to use, much more practical and safer to use than a Hi-Lift Jack for changing tires and, as if it needs to be mentioned, stores away nicely and out of sight when not in use. Of course, the biggest drawback to the factory scissor jack is that they are only designed to lift a stock height to a mildly lifted Jeep just high enough to allow you to change your tire. Unfortunately, once you get your Jeep sitting on a 3"-4" lift and on 35"-37" tires, the factory scissor jack essentially becomes useless. Needless to say, that's why I bought me an AEV JK Jack Base.
|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.
