Jeep JK Wrangler Axle Breather Hose Extension

February 27, 2013 Cindy 3

In addition to installing things like longer sway bar links and brake line extension brackets, when you lift your Jeep JK Wrangler to a height of 3″ or more, it’s a good idea to extend your rear axle breather hose as well. If you don’t, you may find that the hose will get pulled off the axle when flexing out on the trail.

Jeep JK Wrangler 2.5″ Budget Boost
Installation Write-Up

Phase one of the official Project-JK build up was to to get our Jeep JK Wrangler lifted high enough to sit on top of 35" tires and do it on a very tight budget. And, after doing some extensive research, we concluded that the best way to accomplish this goal was to start with the installation of a TeraFlex Budget Boost coil spacer suspension lift. With an extremely low retail price of about $225 (when purchased with a set of optional shock absorber extensions), this very complete kit will effectively lift your Jeep JK Wrangler 2.5" and do it without the need of purchasing new longer shocks – need I say more?

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.

Rear Track Bar Installation Write-Up

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.

Teraflex Jeep JK Wrangler Speed Bumps If you like to drive hard and fast down chewed up desert roads and washes, you know just how bone jarring of a ride it can be especially when your factory bump stops make full contact with your axles. And, short of installing a very expensive coil over suspension system on your Jeep JK Wrangler, there really hasn’t been a whole lot you could do to soften things up or, at least not until now.

If you’re looking for a basic lift to get your Jeep JK Wrangler up on a set of 35" tires, few lift kits today offer the components you really should have to keep your ride and handling performing well both on and off the pavement. Of course, you can buy a complete kit that comes with all the bells and whistles but then, they also cost considerably more. Needless to say, it is for this reason that Northridge4x4 has put together their own Old Man Emu Long Travel Lift Kit which includes the bare essentials that you really should have on a JK with 3" of lift.

Rock Krawler Jeep JK Wrangler
Heavy Duty Tie Rod Installation Write-Up

If you’ve just gone wheeling and your steering wheel is now off center, odds are you have a bent tie rod. Unfortunately, the factory tie rod is very weak and from what I have seen, can bend up and back from just a light hit to a rock or, in my case, can bend out and forward just from the torque and stresses of your front wheels when climbing up an obstacle. And, being that your tie rod is a part of your steering system, a slight bend in it will cause the position of your steering wheel to change. Of course, if the bend is slight, a simple adjustment to your toe and drag link can re-center your steering wheel without any problem. However, if the bend is significant, it can cause your toe to be significantly off and enough so that it cannot be corrected enough for safe driving. Likewise, a significant bend will cause your steering stabilizer to make contact with other components and interfere with your steering.

Contrary to what many seem to think, if you want to get your Jeep JK Wrangler up on a set of 37" tires, you DO NOT need to install a long arm suspension lift kit. Unlike the TJ Wrangler before, the factory length JK control arms are more than long enough to handle the lift you will need to clear 37’s and do it without compromising the quality of your ride. And, if you’re looking for a good short arm lift kit that’ll get you to where you need to be and without the need for anything else, you’re going to want to get a TeraFlex JK 4" Flex Arm Lift.

Rough Country Jeep JK Wrangler
Dual Steering Stabilizer Installation Write-Up

November 13, 2008 Cindy 17
After lifting your Jeep JK Wrangler and installing much bigger tires, you may experience a noticeable increase in the amount of bump steer you have when playing out on the trail. This is of course completely normal as the size of your tires will exaggerate bump steer and a good way to help dampen it is to install a heavy duty steering stabilizer. Or, if you really want maximum dampening, I would recommend picking up a heavy duty dual Steering Stabilizer setup like the kind that Rough Country makes.
