Jeep 3.6L Pentastar Engine Oil Change

One of the cornerstones of vehicle maintenance is the oil change. It’s a simple process that requires few tools and can be performed at home. By doing the oil change yourself it also allows the opportunity to look around and see if anything else needs attention. The 3.6L V6 Pentastar engine was designed in a way […]

2012 Jeep Wrangler Brake Upgrade

I have looked at upgrading my Jeep’s brakes. I’m still running my factory 32 inch mud terrain tires with a little over 32,000 miles on the Jeep. My brakes still have life but leave me wanting. I’m also planning ahead. 37’s are in my future and the current setup is less than desirable with a larger, […]

Tuf Shine Permanent Tire Clearcoat

Some Jeepers don’t believe in tire shine. They feel it discredits the offroad worthiness of their rig. Personally, I like a dressed tire, even on M/T tires. I’ve purchased a lot over the years. Most dressings last a few weeks, but only looks great for a few days. I read about Tuf Shine Permanent tire clearcoat on […]

Clean Wheels

The city of Springfield saw fit to use a lot of salt this past winter. Couple that with brake dust and SMORR mud and you have a dirty undercarriage. As you can probably tell, I wash my Jeep often. But, once or twice a year I take this to the extreme and deep clean the Jeep. […]

Naked Jeep!

I was finally was able to swap the tops on the Jeep. The weather in Missouri has warmed up and the temperature topped 96 degrees today. Toppless and doorless is the best way to experience a Jeep. I love this weather.

Motor Kote Engine Coating

I detailed my engine about 3 weeks ago. After a few rain showers and a trip to SMORR, it was no longer clean. I’ve read a lot of threads on AutoGeek’s forum about professional detailing. While I have no desire to become a professional detailer, I can appreciate their methods and effort while trying to […]

Paul Walker’s Car Collection

Filmed in 2012, the production crew at The Smoking Tire said they originally respected the privacy of who owned this classic collection of cars. “As we filmed this over a year ago, it makes no sense now not to say the cars all belongs to Paul Walker and Roger Rodas,” their youtube page states. The […]

New Steering Stabilizer

New Steering Stabilizer

If you venture off-road enough eventually you are going to break something. Most Jeepers see this as an opportunity to upgrade, mainly because we are optimistic people. In my case, the Big Run a couple of weeks ago took its toll on my stock steering stabilizer. The shock’s rod bent and the busted case required […]
