Truck-Lite Jeep JK Wrangler LED Headlight
Installation Write-Up & Testing

January 25, 2013 Cindy 25

While the Jeep JK Wrangler is without a doubt, the best off road vehicle ever made, the headlights it comes with from the factory are anything but. In fact, I’d have to say that they are the one thing that everyone I know who owns a JK, hates about it. The light they provide are a sickly yellow at best, are really only focused at one point and do very little to fill in the road immediately in front of you. In fact, it is for that reason this that most people who own a JK tend to always use their fog lights in conjunction to their headlights and, are always in search of a good replacement.

Spidertrax Wheel Spacers Installation Write-Up

January 12, 2013 Cindy 21

If you want to run bigger and wider tires on your Jeep JK Wrangler, you really need to do one of two things. One, buy a set of new wheels with less back spacing or two, install a set of high quality wheel spacers which will effectively reduce the 6.25″ of back spacing that your factory wheels have.

Tuffy Security Conceal Carry Underseat Drawer Installation Write-Up

Keeping your valuables out of sight and secure in Jeep JK Wrangler can prove to be a real challenge. Even with your doors installed, a soft top offers little to no protection from would be thieves and, that’s why I always recommend Tuffy Security Products. Of course, if you’ve already got their locking glove box, center console and rear deck installed and are looking for just a bit more secure and convenient to use storage space, I would highly recommend that you get their Conceal Carry Drawer.

OR-FAB Jeep JK Wrangler 2007-2010
Sport Cage Installation Write-Up

June 6, 2011 Cindy 5
While the Jeep JK Wrangler does come with a roll bar right from the factory and one that actually holds up pretty well, it’s definitely something that could still benefit from a bit more support. Because a full custom weld in cage can be quite expensive to have installed and, is for the most part well more than what most people need, the addition of a sport cage like the kind that OR-FAB makes is what I might recommend instead.

Sprint Booster Jeep JK Wrangler
Installation Write-Up & Review

May 9, 2011 Cindy 14
Having come from a background of CJ’s, TJ’s and XJ’s that all came with nice torquey 258 or 4.0L I-6 engines, it was hard for me to get used to the lathargic 3.8L V6 that the JK’s come with. Granted, my previous Jeeps may not have been speed demons but, at least wanted to get up and go as soon as you hit the gas. More than the motor, the problem with lag that the JK’s have comes from the fact that they now come with an ETC or electric Throttle Control. And, while there are solutions available that can help address this lag by allowing you to reprogram your computer, there is another solution that does a great job of helping out as well – Sprint Booser.

Rock Krawler JK Heavy Duty Deep Sump
Automatic Transmission Pan Installation Write-Up

January 18, 2011 Cindy 1
While the Jeep JK Wrangler comes with great skid plate right from the factory that actually does a job of protecting your 42RLE Automatic Transmission, it does have a way of getting in the way of your drive shaft if you have a 3″ or taller lift installed. Because of this problem, there are a lot of people choose to remove this skid plate but, by doing this, you leave the thin transmission sump pan dangerously exposed to rocks. For those of you who have a long arm kit installed on your JK, removing your transmission skid plate is a requirement. So, what is one to do? Well for me, I decided to get a Rock Krawler heavy duty replacement deep sump transmission pan.

TeraFlex Jeep JK Wrangler
Elka Suspension Reservoir Shocks

November 9, 2010 Cindy 3
Elka Suspension, a long time manufacturer of performance ATV products has recently turned their sights onto the Jeep JK Wrangler and, with the help of TeraFlex, has developed a high quality reservoir shock made specifically for it. And, after running them for a few months now, here’s what I can tell you about them.

Jeep JK Wrangler Coast Front 1310
Drive Shaft Installation Write-Up

October 20, 2010 Cindy 29
In addition to things like taller coils, longer shocks and adjustable control arms and track bars, a new 1310 or 1350 double cardin U-Joint style front drive shaft is something that you really should have in your list of needed parts if you plan on lifting your Jeep JK Wrangler 3" or more and you have an automatic transmission. While the factory front drive shaft isn’t all that bad, its diameter is very wide and at 3" of lift or more, it will get hung up on the automatic transmission skid plate (limiting your droop) and its spline shaft boot will catch on the lip of your transmission sump pan causing it to tear.

TeraFlex MONSTER Jeep JK Wrangler
Rear Track Bar Installation Write-Up

September 13, 2010 Cindy 10
Installing a lift of any height on your Jeep JK Wrangler will cause your axles to shift from center. Up front, your axle will shift over to the driver side and in the rear, it will shift over to the passenger side. This shift occurs because your factory track bars are fixed in their length and are attached to only one side of your Jeep’s frame rails and to the axle on the opposite side. As your Jeep goes up, your axles will get pulled to the side of where your track bar is mounted on the frame.

Hanson Stubby Front Stinger Bumper Installation Write-Up

September 9, 2010 Cindy 3
When it comes to heavy duty steel formed bumpers, few companies have the history of excellence and reputation of quality that Hanson Offroad enjoys today. Made entirely here in the USA, you can be sure that all Hanson bumpers are crafted with care and are ready to take just about any punishment you can subject it to. Of course, when I heard that Hanson had released a brand new stubby front bumper with a stinger for the JK, I knew that it was something I had to see it. And, once I did, I knew right then and there that it was the bumper that was going to go on our Sunburst Orange JK.

Bushwacker JK Flat Fender Installation Write-Up

July 11, 2010 Cindy 18
Opening up your fenders and providing more clearance is by far the easiest ways to get your Jeep JK Wrangler sitting on top of much larger tires and without too much effort. And, while there are several options available to do this including trimming your factory fenders or installing a set of steel tube fenders, nothing I have seen to date compares to the new Flat Style Fender Flares made by Bushwacker.
