If you've just installed a set of bigger tires on your stock wheels or on a set of new wheels with too much back spacing, there's a good chance that you'll have some rubbing issues on your front sway bar, frame rail and/or lower control arms while making a full turn.
If you have a 2008 or newer Jeep, your wheels will have come with TPMS or, valve stems that have a Tire Pressure Monitoring System. These sensors provide your Jeep's computer with real-time tire-pressure information and will alert you if one or more tires are running low on air.
You can do what you can to help keep your brakelines out of harms way but, rocks, logs and other obstacles will still have a way of reaching up and snagging them when you least expect. Unfortuantely, it doesn't take much to sever a line or to even tear one out and when that happens, you had better hope you're in a position where braking isn't required.
||Are you finding that you are having to pull up on your Jeep JK Wrangler's emergency/parking hand brake higher and higher in order to get it to work? Or, are you finding that even after pulling it up as high as you can, your JK still tends to roll on an incline? Unfortuantely, it is not uncommon for your JK's e-brake to lose its effectiveness over time but fortunately, there is a way to make adjustments to it with simple tools and with relative ease.
||Thanks to the advent of technology, just about every single part on your new Jeep JK Wrangler is wired up to a computer. And, if anything goes wrong with any one of these parts, your Jeep's computer will make a note of it and/or even let you know about it by illuminating a Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL for short or 'check engine' light) or icons on your dash. Unfortunately, the MIL or other icons won't tell you a whole lot other than the fact that your Jeep is having some kind of a problem and unless you take your Jeep into the dealership or have a OBDII reader handy, you're pretty much out of luck, right? Wrong. As luck would have it, the JK Wrangler's come with a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) reader built right into the dash and you can access them by following the 3 simple steps below. Once you have the DTC code(s) in hand, check it/them against the list below and you will be able to find out exactly what problems your Jeep is having.
