Winterize Your Jeep

Winter is in full swing right now and with that comes the cold weather we all don’t look forward to if you have a Jeep. But have no fear, we have a couple of helpful tips to get your Jeep in gear for this cold weather.

Proper Accessories

We all know how important good accessories can be during this season. Even simple accessories like a good pair of windshield wipers can help you out in a snowstorm especially. But lets not all forget that your interior can be accessorized as well, like with our All Terrain Floor Liners that will protect your Jeep from the daily grime that can accumulate. Also, it is the perfect time to change your tires to Snow Tires to help hold traction on the slippery roads out there.

 

Emergency Kit

Being prepared for the worst can’t hurt. Having a small emergency kit with the essentials like a blanket, shovel, and other things can really come in handy for when you get stuck on or off the trails. With our Recovery Gear Kit getting unstuck can be done in faster time than without.

 

Full Gas Tank

Now it’s safe to say this is just common sense but we just have to remind you. You shouldn’t be riding around with a near empty gas tank and in the winter you don’t want to be caught on the side of the road. Make sure you’re regularly filling up to help prevent condensation from forming on the walls of the tank and dripping down into your gas.

 

 

Office Grudge Match: Tug of War

Jeep Tug of War

The office is basically like the gridiron. A certain amount of trash talking is  expected and even acceptable. In our industry that usually means guys with oversized egos compensating for undersized lifts and tires, if you know what I mean.

The longest running office spat started when a tech guy called out of one of our engineers and asked when he was going to trade in his 2WD Grand Cherokee for a “real Jeep”. The engineer asked replied in kind asked the tech guy the same question. When was he going to trade in his YJ for a “real” Jeep?

To be fair the YJ is the perennial red headed step child of the Jeep family. (How quickly can you say square headlights?) Half CJ7, half TJ it seems the YJ got the worst of both worlds. The ribbing knows no bounds. Example:

Question: Why don’t you see more YJ’s on the trail? Answer: Cash for Clunkers.

Question: What is the best upgrade you can make to YJ? Answer: A TJ

For the better good we decided it was time for this hate fest to end. Love heals all wounds. So, we tried to convince them to fight it out.  They need wounds before they can be healed, right? We have been religiously offering helpful solutions: Duels, Bicycle Jousting, Arm Wrestling, but the absolute best solution we came up with was a tug of war.

So, we ask you: WHO WILL WIN? The grocery getting 2004 2WD Grand Cherokee that is one step above the soccer mom minivan, or the 1993 anemic 2.5L YJ Wrangler? The Grand Cherokee is bone stock (minus the addition of a car seat). The YJ (Yuppie Jeep) is out fitted with a 4″ ORV Lift, 1″ shackle lift and the perquisite 3″ body lift with 35×12.5×12 super swampers.
