Jeep Wrangler Snorkel by Rugged Ridge

May 25, 2012

Jeep Wrangler Snorkel by Rugged Ridge 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!


My 2007 Jeep Wrangler JK 4 Door & a 16′ Kayak

May 15, 2012

Jeep Wrangler Kayak Carrier; Locked & Loaded

I bought a kayak a couple of months ago (from an add on Craig’s List) and promptly stuffed it into storage at JeepWorld HQ. Semi-miserable, cold-ish Spring Weather followed here in Upstate, NY so there it stayed. Cue last week’s weather report predicting temperatures in the 70s with blue skies and plenty of sunshine. I dragged the kayak back out of hiding and promptly came to the realization that this thing (an Old Town Loon Tandem 16 footer) was HUGE. I also was nowhere near water and had to figure out a way to transport this red monster on my Jeep Wrangler 4 Door JK to a place where I could put it to good use. So, how DOES one carry a kayak on a Jeep Wrangler? 

The following solution will work on any 2007-Up Jeep Wrangler 4 Door with a hard top. Why a 4 door only? The 4 door model will provide the allowed set-back (space between the cross bars) to maximize load balance for better security during transport. I have witnessed people using the following set-up on a 2 door or on a 4 door with the front freedom panels removed, but this set-up is dicey at best. It may be OK for a short drive to water, but we definitely do not recommend it.

Step 1: You’re going to need a base rack. I suggest the Thule 300 Foot Pack with 58″ Load Bars to start. The 300 Footers attach directly to the rain gutters on your hard top. These are super easy to install and remove, just be sure you don’t catch the seal around your Wrangler’s windows in the clamp while tightening the knob. The footers then hold the Thule 58″ square load bars.

 Step 2: Next you’ll need to add a Jeep Wrangler Kayak Rack . Which carrier to use? This will depend on your kayak. Since mine is a big, wide kayak, I chose the Thule 883 Glide and Set because of it’s wide front cradles and felt-lined rear saddles that allow you to slide the kayak up into place on the rack. This kit includes two tie-down straps to secure the kayak to the carrier and two ratchet-down straps for the front and rear, a must for maximum security (see pics of my Jeep). For smaller kayaks, I would recommend Thule 830 Stacker (especially for whitewater kayaks) or the Thule Hull-a-Port Pro (835pro). Again, what you use should be dependent upon the kayak or kayaks you are carrying.

Step 3: Drive to some open water and have fun! 🙂

Note: The solution listed above has a maximum weight load of 165 lbs.

From personal experience, I can tell you that this system worked out great. I had an awesome day out on the lake and a heck of a lot of fun. I am confident enough in this kayak rack that I plan on using it to take my kayak on the five hour trip to Maine later this Summer.

Jeep Trek: Paris to NYC “The Long Way” Take 2!

January 5, 2010

A while back, we posted about a group of German Adventurers who were attempting a trek for Paris to NYC, “the long way” in Jeep Wrangler RubiconsThis hearty crew was forced to shut down the expedition in early 2009 due to the horrific Siberian Winter.  Bogged down by countless snowstorms and mechanical failures, the team was delayed long enough to prevent them from crossing the Bering Strait into Alaska.  According to the Toledo Blade , our brave adventurers are back at it:

“The German adventurers attempting to drive two modified Toledo-built Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicons from Paris to New York the long way have restarted their journey after a nine-month hiatus in western Siberia.

Extreme Events founder Matthias Jeschke and his team departed from Egvekinot, on the coast of the Bering Sea’s Anadyrski Gulf in southeastern Russia, on Dec. 29. That location was where the team suspended its journey March 26, because of poor weather and mechanical breakdowns. The team had traveled 18,000 miles from Paris eastward across Europe and Asia. The original plan was to cross the frozen Bering Strait, drive into Alaska, into Canada and then across the northern United States and reach New York City and complete the 27,000-mile trip last spring. The two Rubicons will attempt to reach the village of Uelen – on the Russian side of the Bering Strait – by the end of January before attempting to cross the strait via an ice bridge, using outrigger pontoons attached to the vehicles as a backup. The expedition’s schedule calls for the team to visit Toledo – where the Wranglers were made – on or about June 1, on their way to a June 11 expedition end in New York City.”

Featured Jeep: 2007 Wrangler Sahara (JK)

December 1, 2009

From Larry in TN:

My Jeep doesn’t really have any thing stock. I have 5 22 inch tires for a total of 120 inches of chrome. That doesn’t include the chrome grill, chrome mirrors, chrome step bar, chrome hinges for all the doors including the engine hood, chrome fuel cover, chrome exhaust pipe, chrome door handles, chrome locking door hinges. When you see this baby driving down the road on a sunny day it really makes you look twice.

It’d be a shame to get all that chrome muddy, Larry.  Heh Heh Heh.  No it wouldn’t!  -JW

We carry some great chrome Jeep accessories for your Wrangler.  Spice up the front of your Jeep with our Wrangler Chrome Grill or Jeep Grill Inserts .  We also carry chrome hood scoops and chrome mirror covers as well.  Check out JeepWorld.com for all of your Jeep Parts needs!
