RK Sport Jeep Wrangler JK Heat Reduction and Cold Intake Hood
In 2004 I bought a gas saver: a 2004 Toyota Corolla. At this time, gas was skyrocketing and I needed to save gas, so I looked into an air intake system. I looked at aFe and AIRAID but the one that caught my eye was K&N Filters.
I remember the company from when I was a kid; I’m older now and these guys are still around.
Time for another upgrade! As I mentioned in my first post, the intake system made a world of difference in power, torque, and gas mileage. I was happy with the performance of the truck, but because I am such a speed junkie I wanted more.
I was doing some research on how to get additional off the line power. Keep in mind I really didn’t want to get too crazy with the upgrades either. I just wanted direct easy to bolt-on power, just like the intake system I installed. After researching and asking around, upgrading the throttle body was what I needed to do.
We love our big trucks and blazing through the trails, but we also want to make sure that we have trails to crawl for years to come. Many of our off-road enthusiasts will come back from the trails with a rig full of trash and recyclables that others have left behind. We are proud supporters of Tread Lightly© and although off-roading might not be the most eco-friendly sport, we want to do all that we can to tread lightly on our planet.
In honor of Earth Day, we wanted to give you guys some good fuel economy tips and let you know about a few of our eco-friendly products.
