From Andrew in Sacramento, CA:
“This is my first Jeep and WOW. This trip to Winnemucca for a Chukar hunt was my opportunity to really see what it could do. My Rubicon effortlessly tread up anything I stuck in front of it. Whether the trail was icy, rocky or muddy – it just didn’t matter. Where the other vehicles in my group had to stop I just kept on going. I guess my favorite thing was the sense of freedom that comes with the ability to go anywhere on the mountain. Can’t wait for next year!!“
Congrats on the new Jeep! Winnemucca (wherever the heck that is) looks beautiful and I hope you you shot lots of Chukars (whatever the heck they are)! – JW

We’re in the midst of what is shaping up to be an epic Winter here in the Northeast (knock on wood). With record numbers of skiers and riders headed to the mountains in their Jeep Wranglers, the eternal question of how to get your skis to their destination safely and securely is raised once again. What’s that you ask? “Can’t I just throw my skis or snowboards down the middle of the inside of my Jeep”? Go for it. And enjoy the wet snow melting all over you and your interior while you and your buddies/family elbow your gear for room during the long ride home. Is there a better option(s)? Yes.
Thule has updated their Jeep Ski Rack solutions for us for 2013 (see above). Step 1: Attach the Thule Spare Me (963PRO) Bicycle Rack to your Jeep Wrangler’s Rear Mounted Spare Tire. Yes this doubles as a bicycle rack in the off season. Step 2: Hook the newly re-designed Thule 9033 Tram (carrying capacity of up to 6 pairs of skis or 4 snowboards) to the Spare Me. Step 3: Get up to the mountains and start having fun! Note: This solution works for any Jeep (or other vehicle) with a spare tire.
The other option for a Jeep Wrangler Ski Rack here at JeepWorld.com, which also happens to be the solution I use personally, is the Thule 300 Footer with Thule 58″ Load Bars combined with a Thule Flat Top Ski & Snowboard Carrier. Simply attach the footers to the rain gutters on your Jeep’s Hard Top and attach one of Thule’s Flat Top Ski Carriers to the load bars. Voila! Another easy and safe solution for getting your gear to your favorite ski area. This solution is for 2007-2013 Jeep Wrangler JKs with Hard Tops only.
Both options are available here at JeepWorld and can ship same day (if your order arrives by 2pm EST).
We know that your Jeep is your favorite vehicle, so tell us what your favorite mountain to ski and ride is in the comments below.

If you’re a Dad who drives a Jeep (like me) or if you have a Dad who drives a Jeep (like me), then you’re either hoping to get and maybe even give some Jeep Gifts this weekend for Father’s Day 2012. Here’s a few that we think are great:
Jeep Tire Cover
We’ve got a whole slew of designs to fit most tire sizes. From the Jeep 70th Anniversary Tire Cover to the Call of Duty, from the ever popular Life is Good Tire Cover to plain or with a Jeep Logo only, JeepWorld carries a tire cover for every taste.
Jeep Off-Road Recovery Kit
If the Jeep Dad in your life loves to take his Jeep Off-Road, our very cool Recovery Kits are a must. We offer two different kits, one by Rugged Ridge and one by Jeep. Both include the necessary tools to help your Dad get his Jeep out of any hairy situations and enhance his experience out on the trail.
Jeep Wrangler Floor Mats
If your Dad uses his Jeep like it’s meant to be used, the interior is going to end up pretty filthy. Help him protect the Jeep’s Floor with a set of Jeep Wrangler Floor Mats. We have great options from Jeep, Rugged Ridge, and Weathertech to suit your Dad’s and his Jeep’s needs.
Happy Father’s Day to all the Jeep Dads out there. We here at JeepWorld.com hope it’s a great one!

If you’re using your Jeep like it’s meant to be, you’re getting plenty muddy and wet. The Rugged Ridge Modular XHD Jeep Snorkel System relocates the vulnerable stock air intake location to help reduce the risk of hydro-locking your Wrangler’s Engine and help prevent dust clogged filters. It is also the first Jeep Snorkel designed with the modular functionality of a pre-filter low mount & ram high mount air intake engineering. Unlike other snorkels, you don’t have to give up flexibility for functionality.
Built in manual drain valves channel away excess water to prevent it from entering the intake system. It installs with minor modification to the fender, but without the major cutting and surgery that other kits require.
So there it is JK drivers! Enjoy!

These are our in house four legged friends, Walter & Tiki. They’re chillin’ in my Jeep prior to our 1st You Tube Video Shoot although they’d rather be playing fetch or rolling in poop. -JW

10.3.11 – Chrysler Group LLC is reporting an increase in Jeep Brand Vehicle Sales of 24 percent for September 2011. The Jeep Wrangler led the way, but the increase was also bolstered by a whopping 306% increase in Jeep Compass sales and a 78% increase in Grand Cherokee sales. These increase can be attributed to the 2012 redesign for the 2012 Grand Cherokee and the new Trail Rated 4×4 capability of the new Compass. Chrysler is showing a 27% increase across the board for all it’s vehicle lines (Jeep, Dodge, Ram, Chrysler). Great news for Jeep lovers.
If you’ve purchased a new Jeep this year, make sure to outfit it with us! We’ve got Jeep Accessories for every Jeep vehicle!

From Motor Trend:
“Jeep’s never-ending streak of special-edition Wranglers continues, but the latest edition won’t be sold in our market. The new 2012 Wrangler Arctic Edition, which debuts at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, will only be offered in Europe.
Chrysler’s official press release says the Wrangler Arctic was inspired by the terrain found in its namesake land, as it provides the grueling and demanding environments the Wrangler was engineered to conquer.” Perhaps, but this go-anywhere, do-anything SUV isn’t given any specialized equipment that facilitates sub-zero travel; instead, the Arctic is essentially a spiffy dress-up kit for the Wrangler Sahara and Wrangler Unlimited Sahara.”
