As most of you know, Cindy and I prefer to run our Jeeps with big tires and with as low of a stance as possible. Of course, in order to do this and with a minimal amount of rubbing, some trimming of the body is required… okay, a LOT of trimming!
The first Jeep JK Wranglers came with mirrors that had a way of collecting water from rain or being washed and trapping it inside up against your doors – not a good thing. Later JK’s saw improvements to the mirrors which included a small notch at the bottom of the flange and, while it did help water to drain out, it was still a bit too small and had a tendency to get clogged up with dirt and debris. To fix this, a bigger drain hole is needed and this easy to do mod will help you to make one.
If you’ve just installed a suspension lift and a set of bigger tires on your Jeep JK Wrangler and are still getting a bit of fender rub at a full flex, one of the easiest ways to address it is to install a 1″ body lift.
Of the options out there, I personally would recommend the one made by Rock Hard 4×4 Parts. In addition to being reasonably priced, I have found that the Rock Hard Sport Cage to be one of the easiest options to install and to be one that makes no noise.
Because you never know when you’re gonna need a little extra light, I like to carry a good MagLite flashlight with me in my JK.
|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.|
|Driving your Jeep JK Wrangler the way it was designed to be driven, both doorless and topless, is exhilarating, liberating and of course, a whole lot of fun. Unfortunately, driving your Jeep like this can also leave you with virtually no way to lock up and store valuable possessions if needed. Sure, you’ve got your glove box or center console but, even if they’ve been beefed up with a steel Tuffy Security solution, you’re still limited to only small objects. What if you have something big you need to lock up – maybe something that can only fit in the trunk area of your Jeep? Fortunately for us, Tuffy Security has an answer for that as well and it’s with their JK Security Deck Enclosure.|
|If you’ve been a manual transmission driver most of your life and now that you have an automatic, don’t know what to do with your left foot, or, if you’re just looking for a more comfortable way to rest your foot and help brace yourself on technical descents, Mountain Off Road Enterprises has got the answer for you – a Dead Pedal.|
