Thanksgiving Weekend of Wheeling 2011

November 28, 2011 wayoflife 0

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.
