J.E. Reel Offers Must-Have Driveshaft Solutions for Lifted 2012 Jeep Wranglers

February 23, 2012 wayoflife 9

Pomona, CA – The new 3.6L Pentastar engine in the 2012 Jeep Wrangler JK is one of the most welcome changes to the popular JK since their introduction in 2007. However, the position of the new engine in the chassis creates some unique challenges when driveline angles are changed even slightly from stock, as with a lift kit. Only J.E. Reel offers durable must-have driveshaft solutions for lifted 2012 JKs.

KEEP IT TIGHT : JK-Experience Teaser Clip
Winching out of Carnage Canyon BV

February 20, 2012 wayoflife 0

With nothing but sky in front of you, climbing your way up the extremely steep ledges out of Carnage Canyon BV requires skill, throttle control, a good spotter, strong winch and, if you have manual transmission, the use of all your hands and feet. With our upcoming KEEP IT TIGHT : The JK-Experience Rocky Mountain Run series scheduled to be released this February 28, 2012, we thought it would be fun to put this short clip from the cutting room floor – just to get you juices flowing.

DieHard Platinum Battery for
a 2012-Up Jeep JK Wrangler

February 20, 2012 wayoflife 17

So, for some reason, Jeep decided to change the type of battery they use in the Jeep JK Wrangler from a Group 34, which was used in 2007-11, to a Group 91 which is now used in all 2012’s and I presume, on up. While this really shouldn’t be that big of a deal, the terminals on a Group 91 battery are opposite to those on a Group 34 and, this makes it near impossible to hook up the leads or, at least not without having to do some modifications. Of course, as luck would have it, a Group 91 battery or it’s equivalent, a Group 48, isn’t really a common size you find in a deep cycle format and unfortunately, not something that’s available in a Sears Diehard Platinum, Odyssey or even Optima.

King of the Hammers 2011

February 16, 2012 wayoflife 0

It’s not everyday that you get to see a street legal JK participate in the Ultra4 Class King of the Hammers Race and, all I can say is that I’m so glad that we had the opportunity to be apart of the Off Road Evolution Team. Thanks to their awesome off the shelf EVO Lever system, EVO 1 JK was deemed to be “too fast” for the Everyman Challenge and really, that was fine by them.
