Made by EVO MFG, the Rock Stars are essentially lower control arm mount skids that allow you to chop the bottom of your factory control arm axle mounts and raise the lowest point 1.5″ higher off the ground.
And, if you’re in a pinch for time or just looking to save some money, here’s a write-up that will help you to make your own.
If you’re running a lift on your Jeep JK Wrangler and flex out the suspension on a regular basis, you may find that your rear sway bar had a tendency to shift to one side or the other.
Over the weekend, our good friend Adam (OverlanderJK) came up to Camp WAYALIFE to get away from the hustle and bustle of SoCal living and spend a few days relaxing and wheeling with us up here in beautiful Northern Nevada. While he was up here, he agreed to let us use his 2-door JK to install a set of new Rock Krawler Triple Rate coils that had been sent out to us a while back for testing.
For those of you who are interested in installing one in your Jeep JK Wrangler, this write-up will show you just how easy it is to do.
This step-by-step write-up will show you how to remove the power steering box (or “steering gear” as some like to call it) from your Jeep JK Wrangler as well as show you how to separate the snout and replace the O-Ring inside.
Running big heavy off road tires on wheels that have a lot less back spacing will put a lot more strain on your unit bearings and that will cause them to wear out prematurely.
As everyone knows, changing your engine oil is a necessary part of routine maintenance on your Jeep JK Wrangler and, it’s one that is required on a regular basis.
A full width front bumper on a Jeep JK Wrangler is something that Chrysler is required to provide in order to meet federal safety standards and, while I’m sure they do their job, they’re a complete nuisance out on the trail.
Airing down your tires for the trail is an essential part of off-roading and one that will give you significantly better traction on the rocks and will also offer a much more comfortable ride. However, getting your tires aired back up at the end of the day can be somewhat of a problem especially if you’re still a ways off from a gas station with a working air compressor. Of course, the best solution to this problem is to bring your own source of air but a good hard mounted compressor or CO2 air tank can take up a lot of space inside your Jeep and most of the basic portable units simply don’t have what it takes to fill up four over sized tires in a reasonable amount of time. And, that’s why we decided to get an ARB High Output On-Board Air Compressor for our old 2009 Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited.
Installing a set of heavy duty replacement differential covers is one of the cheapest modifications you can do to your Jeep that’ll help it look cool and give it some extra protection.
