From Daniel in Siloam Springs, Arkansas:

This picture depicts the character behind the Jeep. Built for rockcrawling and driving to school everyday the Jeep lives the best of both worlds. I inherited the Jeep from an older brother and made it into a little 4-cylinder machine. With the addition of a locker this little bad boy has kept up with the big dogs on several occasions. I love to drive it and enjoy God’s creation in an exhilarating fashion.”

Getting your Jeep into that mess is more than exhilarating! Good stuff!


10 Must Have Jeep Accessories for Summer.

May 28, 2008

A beautiful Memorial Day Weekend kicked off the start of Summer with our Jeeps. The sun was shining, tops were down, and the open road was prime for the taking. Here is a Top 10 list of Must Have Accessories for Jeep owners and their Jeeps during Summer:

10. This Jeep Tent is a perfect compliment to the freedom afforded by your Jeep. It attaches to any Jeep vehicle with a lift gate to create extra storage space and can even be rigged up to work on a Wrangler. With more people vacationing closer to home for less money (ie, camping), this tent is a perfect set-up for summer fun.

9. We noticed more vehicles on the road with kayaks and canoes on the roof this summer. These vessels are a heck of a lot cheaper to maintain than motorboats along with the added benefit of a great workout while having fun. Well what are you waiting for? Go buy a kayak now and be sure to purchase a Jeep Kayak or Canoe Rack to carry your new toy to the lake or river! Options are available from Mopar or Thule. These products will work with any Jeep model assuming you’ve got some type of t-slot compatible cross rails or sport utility bars to attach the rack to.

8. If motorboats or jet-skis are your thing, get your Jeep ready to tow them to the lake with the Jeep Trailer Hitch .

7. When bouncing along off-road you’ll want to give your passengers a fighting chance. Hook your Jeep Wrangler up with Jeep Grab Handles and give them a little grip to hold on to. Available for your roll bars and the rear of your front seats.

6. After a long winter and spring of tracking in slush and mud, this time of year is perfect to replace your Jeep Carpet Mats . These are made by Mopar to specifically match your Jeep’s interior color.

5. Nothing is worse than carrying your bike inside your car. This particular endeavor is made more difficult when driving a Jeep with less interior cargo room, such as the Wrangler or the Compass. The Jeep Bicycle Carrier by Mopar is designed to make lugging your bike less painful and to insure that it will arrive to it’s destination safely. It is available in spare tire mount for the Wrangler , spare tire or roof mount for the Liberty, & roof mount for the Grand Cherokee, Commander, and Compass, as well as a Hitch Mount version for the Jeep Patriot.

4. It’s summer and your hard-top MUST come off. Your Jeep was made to be driven topless and now is the time to do it. What to do with that unwieldy hard-top? Why not stow it on a Jeep Hard Top Storage Dolly? This product allows easy movement of the hardtop with the best use of available space.

3. Another Jeep Wrangler Accessory and overall Summer must have is the Cloverpatch Window Roll. This clever product allows for easy storage of the soft top windows while out on the road or trail. it protects your windows from dents, scratches, and tears while allowing you to bring them with you on the trail or road. If you run into a stretch of bad weather, just bust out the windows and you’re good to go.

2. Summer is the perfect time of year to get your Jeep out, cleaned up, and on the road or trail. Set your Jeep apart from the pack with a Jeep Tire Cover. Everything from Smiley Faces, to American Flags, to Jeep or Life is Good Logos are available.

1. Our favorite summer Jeep Accessory is the Jeep Bikini Top. Available for TJ and JK models (1997-up), this product allows you to stay cool and in the shade with the ease of removing the top if you are feeling the need to get a tan.

If you have any technical questions or advice, please leave a comment and we’ll do our best to get them answered for you. Now get out there and have fun!

From Sheila in Colorado Springs, Colorado:

My Jeep takes my dogs and I onto the mountain backroads of Colorado with ease. There is nothing more enjoyable than 4-wheeling to a secluded spot and enjoying the view…just me, the dogs and the Jeep!”


Hell no! We won’t pay for expensive gas!

May 22, 2008

Except that we’ll have to pay even more to refill these vehicles we just emptied during out “protest” !

A few minutes ago, I stepped out the front door of our offices to a cacophony of truck horns blaring, as a parade of commercial vehicles flying hundreds of tiny American Flags cruised down the main road through town . Gas prices finally topped $4 per gallon here in the Northeast today (just in time for Memorial Day Weekend) and the alliance of “Truckers and Concerned Citizens” decided to protest what they see as “unreasonable gas prices”. The protest was at least 50 vehicles strong and containing everything from commercial rigs, to dump trucks, to logging trucks. It was a regular circus of noise, billboards, & fumes, and guess what? It didn’t accomplish anything. A true protest would have these trucks parked in garages somewhere, not delivering the goods we all depend on, instead of on the roads burning the gas they were protesting the price of in the first place. Gas prices have become a hot-button issue. This is the first gas protest I’ve witnessed in my lifetime, but I certainly don’t think it will be the last. Let’s make it a little less self-defeating next time, eh guys?


Featured Jeep: 1998 Cherokee Sport (XJ)

From Joshua in Woodland Park, Colorado:

My main reason of why I love my jeep is because of its versatility. I love how it handles in the snow and off road. I plan on taking it to Moab, UT this summer. This really is my baby. It is a Five speed too, which makes it GREAT on gas. I can easily get about 25 to 30 Miles to the gallon”


$2.99 Gas Plan Extended by Chrysler

May 21, 2008

It looks like Chrysler is now extending their $2.99 gas plan , that we blogged about a couple of weeks ago, until July 7th, 2008 . The “deal” is not offered for the Jeep Wrangler and other more popular Chrysler models.

This program should allow Chrysler to move their current inventory, while (we hope) working on producing more fuel efficient vehicles. What do you think? Good program or cheap gimmick? Let us know!

From George in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (spell check, please!):

It takes me everywhere I want to go and I look good getting there.”
