March 19, 2009 wayoflife 3

Northridge4x4 is happy to announce that they will be working with AEV in Moab during the Easter Jeep Safari and will be performing a JK HEMI V8 Conversion Class on April 9-10. Customers interested in checking out the class will have the opportunity to talk to both the technicians doing the work as well as the engineers who designed AEV’s HEMI Conversion Kit. An intentional effort will be made to go slowly over a two day period of time to give people a chance to ask questions and see just how easy it is to install a V8 HEMI using AEV’s kit. This installation class will be held in the parking lot of Moab 4×4 Outpost which is located at 1805 S. Highway 191 in Moab. For more information please contact: david@northridge4x4.com

Project-JK Valley of Fire Logandale Trails 2009

March 12, 2009 wayoflife 8

I have in-laws that live in Henderson, Nevada, and so as you can imagine, I get to spend a lot of time out in the Las Vegas area. And, while I have always known about the Valley of Fire and some of the trails that exist back there, I’ve never had a chance to check any of them out or at least not until recently. Now, while there is no off-roading allowed within the boundaries of the Valley of Fire State Park, there is a large area located on the outskirts of the park near to the north shores of Lake Mead and to the town of Logandale. This area contains a large network of OHV trails and is specifically known as the Logandale Trails. Of the trails that are designated for Jeeps, the Shitter, Rock Bottom, Hawkins, Bowl, Matterhorn, Arockalpse are the most popular and most of these have tough optional side routes that you can try out such as the infamous S-Turn. Of course, in addition to the great off roading you can do, the scenery is simply to die for and if you’re willing to do some exploring on foot, there are some beautiful springs and petroglpyhs that you can hike up to as well.

Jeep JK Wrangler Torque Settings

March 2, 2009 Cindy 24
As a part of routine maintenance or anytime that you work on your Jeep JK Wrangler, it is important that you tighten any bolt and/or nut that gets removed back to the appropriate torque settings as is outlined by the Factory Service Manual. Obviously, failure to get a bolt and/or nut tightened enough can result in them eventually coming loose and while that can be a real problem, tightening them too much can also be a problem as you can run the risk of breaking them. Needless to say, knowing the proper torque setting for each bolt and nut on your JK is important to know and the list below should help you to know just how much you should be tightening them to.
