Typically, our family uses the Thanksgiving weekend to visit relatives but, because of our son’s school and work schedule, we decided to change things up and just stay at home and relax. That is, that was the plan up until we got a call from Mel at Off Road Evolution who asked if we’d be interested in a last minute banzai run out to Laughlin.
The all new 2012 Jeep JK Wrangler comes with a new vacuum assist or pump which is located on the driver side frame rail and just behind the front bumper. For the most part, there’s nothing wrong with where it’s placed but, if you choose to run an aftermarket front bumper and install a large winch that sits between the frame rails, it is something that will need to get relocated.
There is so much I absolutely love about the all new 2012 Jeep JK Wrangler – I love the new interior, all the new creature comforts, tailgate that stays open on it’s own and who could forget the awesome 3.6L vvt Pentastar Engine with 5 speed automatic transmission. But, I do have to say I was a bit surprised to see all the new changes under the belly including a crazy exhaust loop, dangerously exposed transmission cooler line and no skid plates presnt to protect any of it.
Back in 2006, Burnsville Offroad came to the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada with the very first HEMI converted Jeep JK Wrangler.

You’ve just got to love technology and companies like Edge Superchips for coming out with some amazingly sophisticated programmer/tuners for our Jeep JK Wrangler.
TeraFlex came to the 2011 SEMA Show with their all new new Tera44 Jeep JK Wrangler replacement front axle housing.
Of all the Jeep JK Wranglers at the 2011 SEMA Show, I’d have to say that the AEV Brute Double Cab stole the show.
Among other things, Full-Traction Suspension came to the SEMA 2011 to show off their all new CRC Link for the Jeep JK Wrangler. In this Project-JK Video Spotlight, Steve Kramer explains how easy it is to install as well as the benefits it provides both on and off-road.
If there was one thing that was really hot at the 2011 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, I would have to say it was pick-up truck versions of Jeep JK Wranglers.
One of the very first stops we made at the 2011 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, was over at Dynatrac. Before coming to the show, we had heard rumors of a badass new axle they might be unveiling but for the life of me, I wasn’t expecting to see this – a Pro Rock 80!!
