The Loveland Castle (Chateau Laroche)

The Loveland Castle (Chateau Laroche)

With less than a week left before we begin our 2016 wheeling season and a few late winter modifications that had yet to be tested, we knew it was time to get Dirty out of hibernation and blow the winter cobwebs out.

JK/JKU Trailer Harness Install

JK/JKU Trailer Harness Install

When we purchased Lil Punkin’ she already had a receiver but she was lacking the accompanying harness.

Recently, we purchased a Ripp Superchargers Cold Air Intake Kit for our 2013 JKU. While installing it, we noticed that there were a few things missing or different. So, to help others that may be planning to install this same kit soon, we thought we would do a little install write-up. The RIPP part number for the kit we purchased is 0114JK36CAI.

How Internal Bypass Shocks Work….

How Internal Bypass Shocks Work….

Lots of rigs have them… and while I’m sure many are for looks or to brag about having them. Many don’t really know how they work. This video by Fox does a great job at describing what’s going on inside. If nothing else, we can all sound smarter at our next swap meet or Jeep event after watching it 😛 😎 😉
