    Modified Floor Jack and New Jack Stands

    I actually went with the 2.5-ton aluminum floor jack from the Harbor Freight and added the 911 Motorsports kit. Makes it a lot like the ProEagle jacks, but a lot of $$$$ less... I go the kit that came with the replacement plate (adds ~2-3" to the stock), and with 6" and 11" extenders, 6" wheels...

    CB Radios - Which one do you run and where do you mount it?

    I run a handheld clipped into my overhead MOLLE panel. I have a firestick antenna wired up and terminates up in place for me to hook in. I then use a handheld mic on the coil. All so I don't leave it in the Jeep full time. Have the same setup for my GMRS handheld (GMRS Antenna not the Firestick...

    Beware!! - EVO Protek Skid Plates

    Checked mine, and my only issue is a bend where the front Driveshaft comes out from behind. The fold on the edge narrows there and could be explained by that... Had mine for 5 years now and wheeled hard when it's out. Was low crawling on the plates for the first 2 years (33"s and 2-inch lift on...

    Best ball joints for a 2017 Rubicon on 37's with 50k miles?

    You can also go to the Delete Route. Ball joint delete kits replace them with a set of bearings that are maintainable/repairable and last significantly longer than normal ball joints. They are about twice as expensive as good ball joints, but last significantly longer, and are used also on Rock...

    Minimum lift for 37”?

    I'm running an EVO Enforcer 4" with Bushwacker Flat Fenders on my JKU with 38"s and don't see any problems and ran it up one of the RTI ramps this past weekend and managed to push the tires all the way up in the wheel wells and almost put the rear wheel on the RTI ramp (pulled a 108" on a...

    How to treat rust??

    I have my undercarriage hit with NHOU undercoating about every other year. Works great to keep the rust to a minimum here in New England... Note, NHOU is short for NewHampshire Oil Undercoat, It's a company that makes a petroleum product that is applied to the undercarriage and can be injected...

    What Not to do, and the plan moving forward

    Oh, and the E-Brake is a separate braking device (thankfully) and is located inside the rear brake rotors (it's actually a lot like a mini drum brake inside the rotor for the main disk brake). Please don't try to drive it anywhere only using that brake Have it towed. It's not designed for...

    What Not to do, and the plan moving forward

    Oh, and before I forget: Where you live shouldn't dictate how often you do your maintenance. if it does, go to the local mechanic or even the dealership. And if you don't like paying to have it done, and don't want to do it yourself, I'd get rid of your Jeep and get something different. Jeeps...

    What Not to do, and the plan moving forward

    Looks like a rotor that had been ridden on pads worn to bare metal (and then likely on the caliper's piston after the Pad shot out when it was the thickness of tinfoil). The Rotor looks completely worn/metal on metal contact. How often do you check/change your pads? Riding on nonexistent pads...
