Time for a little fall maintenance

I’d been putting off some routine maintenance on the Wrangler for a few weeks now. I needed an oil change a new air filter and probably a tire rotation too for good measure, but I’d been putting it off. I didn’t want to spend the money to take it to the dealer, and I didn’t […]

Well that’s diff-erent, Is my LSD bad?

Sometimes things don’t go to plan. Like when your limited slip differential mysteriously goes out without warning. This is what we discovered last week after it began making the characteristic clunk and chatter of an LSD on the way out. I had the Jeep up on jack stands swapping to swap out the old rear […]

Everything looks better in red even shocks

I’ll be the first to admit shock absorbers are not the most glamorous part on a Jeep, but this week that’s exactly what were talking about.

On rust patrol, going to war on the red rot

4x4s are designed to take a beating; for this reason, most are still made from steel. Steel skid plates protect vulnerable parts like your engine and fuel tanks from rocks and other hazards.

Countless trips to the dealership and mechanics revealed a laundry list of repairs. Some of the repairs […]

Project Wrangler: Swapping the springs

Last weekend, I manged to complete the suspension overhaul on my Wrangler I started back in August. Ever since I got my Jeep back in March, I’ve had no end of suspension trouble. I’ve had everything from bad shocks to bent steering components. With the availability of perfectly good take-off parts available on the cheap, I […]

How we found the best off-road bumper for our rig

It wasn’t until recently that I started thinking about swapping my Jeep’s lightweight plastic bumper for one better suited for the off-road abuse I was likely to experience while wheeling. I wanted something that looked good, would improve my clearances and allow me to modify my Jeep in the future. Before we go any further, I […]

Introducing Project Wrangler

The thing about owning a Jeep — Specifically a Wrangler — is once you start working on one you never really finish. I wish I’d known that before I purchased mine earlier this year. Honestly it wouldn’t have stopped me. I was hell bent on owning a Wrangler. It’s not that it’s always breaking down, […]
