    Question about diesels or gassers and grille front light bars/light mounts

    I’ll have to disagree... If done in moderation like I did with the BD led lights you should not have any problem. I’ve been in 4 low at elevations over 12,000 feet in 90 degree weather without any signs of the engine getting warm. The newer trucks, particularly diesels, have a tremendous amount...

    New Jeep - Gladiator Rubicon

    I have been waiting for this truck for a few years. We’’re going to a local dealer tomorrow to test drive one and if everything goes as planned we’ll be ordering one from a dealer in a nearby state who is willing to sell below invoice. My out the door price for a nicely optioned Rubi should be...

    Possibilities for my F-150

    2019 Baja XL... who's in?

    Anton I don't know if you know but Porsche raced the Cayanne in the 2008 Transsyberian Rally and did very well. In fact they built 6(?) cars and I think all of them finished. You could actually order a new Cayanne with the TR package straight from the factory so if you need something specific...

    Alu-Cab Has Landed In The USA!

    It's been great. The only issue was that Jeep didn't install a plate to protect the DEF injector. I bought one in the aftermarket. It will be interesting to see how/what Jeep does to protect this on the JT, particularly in something like the Rubicon trim...
