Rugged Ridge Splash Guard

Rugged Ridge, a leading manufacturer of high-quality Jeep accessories, today announced the availability of its new Splash Guards for 2007-2015 Jeep Wrangler (JK).

Constructed from high-quality, high-strength, injection molded Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE), the Splash Guards protect the Jeep Wrangler’s painted lower body panels from rock chips, mud, water and debris splatter. The Guards are also paintable, allowing Jeep owners to further customize their Wrangler.

“I love getting my Jeep dirty out on the trail, but it’s always a chore afterwards to clean all the splatter and mess that the tires kick up,” said Chris Van Buren, a Design Engineer at Omix-ADA. “These Splash Guards allow me to spend more time behind the wheel of my Wrangler and less time cleaning it.”

Splash guards or mud flaps are required by law in certain states within the continental United States. Please check your local laws and regulations.

The Rugged Ridge JK Splash Guards are backed by Rugged Ridge’s 5-year limited warranty and are available online and through select Jeep and off-road parts/accessories retailers nationwide.

Rugged Ridge Soft Top Spring Assist

Rugged Ridge today announced the availability of its new Soft Top Spring Assist Kit for the 2007-2012 Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited 4-door models.

Spring assisted opening and closing is already a feature found on the 2013-2014 Wranglers from the factory; Rugged Ridge’s new retrofit kit brings the same convenience to owners of older Jeeps. Designed to work with Jeep’s factory frame components, the new JK Soft Top Spring Assist kit is relatively easily installed and seamlessly integrates into the soft top as well as other aftermarket factory replacement tops on the market.

Engineered to allow just one person to raise and lower the top, each Rugged Ridge kit features dual spring arms and a quick release locking mechanism that keeps the soft top safely locked in the lowered position for open-air driving.

“The spring assist simplifies the process of raising your soft top from a two person job to a do-it-yourself task,” said Alain Eboli, Engineering Manager at Omix-ADA. “In older JKs, the canvas soft top is so heavy it requires the effort of two people – one on each side of the top. Now, with this retrofit kit, owners have the help of spring assist to lift the other side, making the process much less cumbersome.”

The Rugged Ridge Soft Top Spring Assist is backed by Rugged Ridge’s 5-year limited warranty and is available online and through select Jeep and off-road parts/accessories retailers nationwide.

For more information about the Soft Top Spring Assist, Rugged Ridge’s complete line of high-quality Jeep and off-road products, or to find an approved retailer, please contact Rugged Ridge at (770) 614-6101 or visit www.RuggedRidge.com.

Rugged Ridge Drag Links

 

Rugged Ridge, a manufacturer of Jeep off-road accessories and suspension kits, today introduced its new inverted drag link for 2007-2014 Jeep JK Wranglers. Specially designed to fix steering geometry issues that plague lifted Jeeps, the new design reduces bump steer and increases ground clearance; keeping vital steering components out of the way from rocks and other obstacles on the trail.

Jeep’s original design has the drag link mounted from the bottom of the passenger side steering knuckle, leaving the drag link especially vulnerable to trail damage. Using Rugged Ridge’s new design, owners drill out the original steering knuckle mounting hole and relocate the new inverted drag link over the top of the knuckle using a connecting sleeve, gaining precious ground clearance.

“With bump steer, the vehicle might need constant direction adjustment whenever driving over a bump. Drivers could be holding the steering wheel straight, but the vehicle could steer to the left or right every time they hit a bump on the trail,” said Alain Eboli, Engineering Manager at Omix-ADA. “By inverting the drag link, this problem can be greatly reduced.”

Rugged Ridge’s Inverted Drag Link is available online and through select Jeep and off-road parts/accessories retailers nationwide.

For more information about the Inverted Drag Link or Rugged Ridge’s complete line of Jeep parts and accessories, or to find an approved retailer, please contact Rugged Ridge at (770) 614-6101 or visit its website at www.RuggedRidge.com.

Jeeps Five Year Plan

jeep-chart2

During the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Investors Day meeting it was revealed by Jeeps CEO Michael Manly the ambitious plans for the next half decade that are in store for the Jeep brand. The goal during that period is that FCA will launch Jeep as a lead global brand by boosting sales to 1.9 million units by 2018.

The beginning of this plan will be to launch the new Renegade late this summer that debuted in Geneva. Next will come a new unnamed compact SUV model that will replace the current Patriot and Compass that will arrive in mid 2016 to help celebrate Jeep’s 75th Anniversary. A new generation Wrangler arrives in mid 2017 which will be followed by the all-new Grand Cherokee later that same year. And as if that wasn’t enough the last new arrival will be a large, 3 row SUV that will have the classic Jeep Grand Wagoneer name.

Nothing but good things will be coming from Jeep.
