The Ultimate E-Ticket Ride!!

November 29, 2006 wayoflife 21

Last week, Off Road Evolution decided to put their brand new 2007 Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited Sahara to the test by driving it over 1,700 miles to visit family in Missouri, play hard at Disney, Oklahoma, and then drive it all the way back to their home in sunny southern California.

Now, just so that we’re all on the same page here, we’re talking about driving a JK Unlimited automatic that’s been lifted with a Full Traction 4″ Ultimate short arm kit, is sitting on top of 37″ Toyo Open Country A/T’s and is running J.E. Reel Drivelines but is otherwise stock when it comes to its drivetrain. It’s still running a stock Dana 30 front and Dana 44 rear axles, stock gears, no lockers and it only has a 2.72:1 Command Track transfer case. And, aside from the over-drive being rendered completely useless due to the 37’s and being pulled over by a cop once just so he could get a better look at this awesome JK, Mel tells me that it drove great, rode great and even performed way better than he thought it would on and off the trail.

The Best of Bestop

Included in Bestop’s line-up were the kind things I had expected to see like your standard Bikini Top, Windjammer and Duster Cover, but much to my surprise, they also had things like their new electric AMP Research Power Steps, very cool Element Door System, front and rear Highrock 4×4 bumpers, a sweet 2-piece hard top, overhead console and a well needed trunk on display as well. Basically, everything a Jeeper could want and/or would need for their brand new Jeep JK Wrangler.

Security Console Insert & Security Drawer

One of the things we all love about owning a Jeep is the freedom that we have being able to drive it topless and doorless. Needless to say, one of the things that thieves love about Jeeps is the fact that the people who drive them often do so topless and doorless. Well, fortunately for us, Tuffy Security Products has been providing Jeep owners with lockable high quality and extremely durable steel center consoles, overhead consoles, console inserts, trunks, drawers and more for years. And, now that the new 2007 Jeep JK Wrangler has been released, Tuffy is once again stepping up to the plate and making the kind of products we need to keep our valuables safe.

November 8, 2006 wayoflife 12

With a Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited sitting on top of 6″ Long Arm Suspension System and 39.5″ tires, TeraFlex clearly had the biggest JK on display at SEMA 2006. But, in addition to this monstrous lift, TeraFlex also had four other suspension systems available for the 2007 Jeep JK Wrangler including a 2.5″ Performance Boost, a 3″ Suspension Kit and two variations of 4″ Suspension Kits.

For SEMA 2006, Full Traction had a total of five different lift kits available for the 2007 Jeep JK Wrangler including a 2″ ECONO Lift, 3″ Economy Suspension System, 3″ PREMIUM Suspension System, 3″ ULTIMATE Suspension System and a 4″ ULTIMATE Suspension System. And, with a total of seven Jeep JK Wranglers sitting on top of one of these suspension systems, Full Traction was able to grab the title for having the most products on display at the show.

SEMA 2006 – Jeep JK Wrangler Suspension Mentions – Donahoe Racing

November 6, 2006 wayoflife 0

Seeing Donahoe Racing at SEMA 2006 wasn’t so much of a surprise but seeing them there with a 5″ lifted Stone White Jeep JK Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited definitely was. Make no mistake, Donahoe Racing is no rookie when it comes to developing high end off-road suspension products, but this JK was most certainly the first time that they’ve made a stab at the Jeep industry in quite some time. However, after looking at what they came up with, you’d never know it.

With over 34 Jeep JK Wranglers hooked up, modified and on display by manufacturers such as Full Traction, PUREJEEP, Superior Axle & Gear, TeraFlex, Bestop, Toyo Tires, Donahoe Racing, Rancho, Skunkwerks, AEV, Bestop, Tuffy, Skyjacker, Bushwacker, Superlift, WARN, Rubicon Express, Ramsey Winches, Avenger Superchargers, Kilby Enterprises, Warrior Products, Burnsville Off Road and a few more that I’m probably missing, I’d have to say that this year’s SEMA Show was by far one of the very best that I’ve had a chance to attend.
