RK Sport Jeep Wrangler JK Heat Reduction and Cold Intake Hood
After doing some research and asking the helpful guys at my local 4 Wheel Parts store in Lynnwood, Washington, I decided to purchase the Durabak polyurethane bedliner for my Jeep. I was told that I would only need a single gallon to cover the entire inside of the tub with two coats, but to be safe I purchased an additional quart (this turned out to be unnecessary, but better safe than sorry, right?).
We all know what can happen when water meets metal: rust. Living in the extremely wet climate of Seattle, my 1992 Jeep Wrangler has its fair share, inside and out. Getting rid of rust on the inside of your vehicle is a relatively simple project that doesn’t require any particular technical skill or know-how. With the right tools and a helping hand, it can probably be completed in a single weekend.
We have just run into a 2007 JK Jeep oddity. When looking to do a gear upgrade on your Jeep, be aware that not all 2007 JKs have Dana 44 rear axles. There are a few that have Next Generation Dana 35s with 4:10 gears from Chrysler. They are easy to spot because the axle cover has a different shape than a Dana 44.
Currently there are no gears, axle shafts, or lockers available for this Jeep. Since they are in such limited supply in the United States, it is doubtful any manufacturer will spend any time or money to make upgrades for them.
Just wanted to make ya’ll aware I am not just a “Jeep JK” Jeep Bastard. My first Jeep experience was a 1978 Jeep CJ5 that I have no picture record of. Next was a 1979 Jeep J20 pickup that I still own, but it’s in storage.
My first hardcore experience was Sledge Hammer in Johnson Valley, CA around 18 years ago. The CJ7 I ran that day ran a lot of trails over a 20-year span. My last experience in that Jeep was the Jeepers Jamboree 2003. That run was marred with a broken right rear axle, no rear brakes, and a severely broken frame. Read more
