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.



Crush Recovery Build: Rugged Ridge Aluminum XHD Bumpers

Finally got the Rugged Ridge Aluminum XHD front and rear bumpers installed, along with the tire carrier, and winch as well. The build is really starting to come together and is looking more and more like the rendering every day!
