|While a decent FRS walkie-talkie style hand held radio will get you by on the trail, there really is nothing that compares to a good old fashion CB radio when it comes to range, audio clarity, reliability and ease of use. And, it’s for those reasons that’s so many Jeep clubs make having a CB Radio a requirement in order to go on their runs.
Now, I know there are a lot of people who try to argue that a CB radio is too expensive or that they wouldn’t know where to install one in the Jeep JK Wrangler and it is for them that I have created this easy to follow write-up. With the very affordable Midland 1001Z CB Radio (can be purchased for about $32 shipped), a few simple tools and an hour of your time, you can have a great CB radio installed on your Jeep that’s compact, looks great and comes loaded with features including a PA switch. Need I say, you no longer have any excuses for not having a CB radio in your Jeep.
For those of you looking to keep your Jeep JK Wrangler relatively stock and have no plans of installing tires larger than 33″ but would still like to regain some of the power you’ll loose from them, Superior Axle & Gear has got the answer for you. Last week, I got to watch the very first set of Superior Axle 4.56 gears getting installed into Brett Woods’ (aka – Woods) 2007 Jeep JK Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited and after giving them a thorough break in, here’s what he had to say about them…
This latest addition to our growing colletion of Project-JK videos was flimed back in August and highlights our easy 2-day run/camping trip that we did up to the Sierra Nevada Mountains to watch the Perseid Meteor Showers.
Of all the trips that we’ve gone on this year, I’d have to say that this was by far the mother of all last minute runs. In fact, I don’t think any of us had any idea as to where we might be going – if we were going, until the Friday before and even then, nobody had a clue as to what the plan was until close to 10:00 PM that night.
