    Last night while running to Target to pick up some forgotten items I was in an accident. While entering the left turn lane a tow truck decided he also wanted to enter it as well. His driver side front tire contacted my passenger rear and the impact spun me around so I was facing opposing...

    While out at KOH on Wednesday watching the 4400 qualifying with my buddy a guy in a Toyota (well Toyota motor and frame) parked next to us.

    Best EDC Binoculars

    I know there are a lot of people on here who enjoy the outdoors. I am looking for a nice set of binoculars that I can EDC in my Jeep for around $100 or so.

    Jeep Pushing the 2.0

    Well I've been in contact with a dealership to price out a new JLUR for my wife. I was surprised to see that if I wanted the 3.6l it was an additional $1750 and then the 850RE was another $1500. The dealership contacted me and said that in order to have that combo on the Rubicon, Jeep now...

    So-Cal: Set of 4 Full Traction 3" Springs 2007-2018 JK

    I have a set of 4 Full Traction 3" springs for a 2007-2018 JK. I believe the fronts may work on a TJ/LJ. They were still providing 3" of lift when I swapped them for 4" plush rides. They're fairly soft but not as soft as the plush rides. I'm asking $200 for all 4 or $100 a pair. Again I'm at...

    When I had the shocks rebuilt one of the front shafts was bent. Mel explained that as the axle swings the body of the shock tends to hit the frame and bend the sock shaft. I used Evo Mfg lower shock relocation brackets to move my King 2.5's to the outer side of the lower mounting brackets. Is...

    Replace the Front Output Shaft Yoke?

    Well after my last oil change and service I noticed what looked like T-case fluid being slung on the underside of the jeep originating from the front output shaft area. I assumed the seal was wearing out and it would need to be changed. Also while driving I could hear a rotational chirping...
