RK Sport Jeep Wrangler JK Heat Reduction and Cold Intake Hood
My name is Jay Barnett but my co-workers and friends call me Jeep Bastard Jay. I got that nickname from an old friend (it’s a long story), but I have stuck with it ever since. I have been with the company for a LONG time and currently help the DSI department. Well, enough about me. Here’s my Jeep story.
Back in 2007, Jeep released their new Wrangler called the JK and from the moment I saw it I knew everyone was going to see me on the trail with the newest and greatest Jeep vehicle. The only problem was that California didn’t have any of them, so before I could pack I was on a plane flying to Dallas, Texas to bring home my bright red Jeep. The good thing about working here and having one of the first JKs in California is testing the aftermarket parts for vendors.
Last time I told you about the lifts, wheels, and tires that went into turning my basic 2008 Jeep Wrangler into a 7 foot beast. But before I could take it on the test run, there were a few more things I wanted to add:
I bought my 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with the bare minimum because I knew in 6 months it would not look the same.
I started with the essentials: lift, wheels, and tires. For this I went with the pros at the 4 Wheel Parts in Santa Ana. We decided to tackle a 6″ Pro Comp Long Arm kit with Fox Reservoirs. I also installed Pro Comp 7005 series 17″ wheels and the Pro Comp 37″ Mud Terrains, which hold up great on trail rides and are smooth on the street.
