Merry Christmas to all… 🙂

My Christmas Wish For You

My Christmas wish for you, my friend
Is not a simple one
For I wish you hope and joy and peace
Days filled with warmth and sun

I wish you love and friendship too
Throughout the coming year
Lots of laughter and happiness
To fill your world with cheer

May you count your blessings, one by one
And when totaled by the lot
May you find all you’ve been given
To be more than what you sought

May your journeys be short, your burdens light
May your spirit never grow old
May all your clouds have silver linings
And your rainbows pots of gold

I wish this all and so much more
May all your dreams come true
May you have a Merry Christmas friend
And a happy New Year, too ..
We wish you a merry Christmas 🙂

(Repost but too good not to share once again!)

Good day all you Jeep enthusiasts.. Today I want to share a poem I cam across by a very talented writer I might add, while reading the news feed on Facebook today. Cindy Homans Creighton posted this ode that is fitting for all Jeep owners who know how to have fun in their Jeeps. Thank you Cindyfor allowing me to share your great poem and picture with all of our readers!

Ode to My Jeep
At Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas,
And everyone was asleep;
It was a perfect night,
For a rip in the Jeep.

I quietly slipped out,
Snow was gently falling;
When I got to the trailhead,
A Barred Owl was calling.

The trailhead was blocked,
By a big mound of snow;
Time to air down,
And put ‘er in 4-Low.

I tried to crawl it first,
But this mound was no mini;
I backed ‘er back up,
And gave ‘er the skinny.

She blasted up and over,
This snow mound with ease;
With lockers turning all wheels,
She was aiming to please.

It was a beautiful night,
A shame to waste on sleep;
This is what I call quality time,
For me and my Jeep.

The trail was pristine,
The off-camber sections were nice;
But then she plunged into a hole,
And crashed through the ice.

The tires spewed slush,
And the engine did roar;
But it was time to unspool,
My trusty 8274.

The winch it pulled,
As the tires they spun;
A big smile on my face,
This was all part of the fun.

We’re rolling again,
But it’s time to head back;
Santa will soon be here,
And I must hit the sack.

I put another log on the fire,
And headed up to sleep.
I drift off dreaming,
Of fun times in my Jeep!

Christmas is just around the corner but it isn’t too late to pick out the perfect gift for your off roader! Granted, I generally speak of mostly Jeep off roading items but we all know there are many types of off roading vehicles out there so I wanted to make sure I included everyone and every type of off roading vehicle driver in my list of gifts you can get for your special off roading enthusiasts.

This list will include gifts and ideas that are under $25.00 for any off road enthusiasts. If you don’t see something on this list, stay tuned because the next several blogs will be gift ideas for any off-roader!

Digital Tire Gauge $12.99:
As every off roader knows, a tire gauge is essential in deflating your tires to the right pressure for the terrain, and then airing back up before hitting the roads home. If your off roader is tired of trying to read the lines that are in 2 pound increments on those pencil tire gauges then this easy to read and accurate digital tire gauges in half-pound increments is for them! Lower the tire pressure for those off-road trips and then accurately re-inflate them to the safe recommended tire pressure for on-road use. These gauges save fuel and extend tire life. Made of high impact plastic.

Jeep Willys Shot Glasses

Crown Automotive Officially Licensed Jeep Willy’s Shot Glasses – Set of four, $14.95

Air Deflator

Air Deflators $15.95
These air deflators are a must have for any trail vehicle. Airing down your tires increases traction and handling when off-road, but can take forever when you are in a hurry. These air deflators make the job easier so you can get out onto the trail. A key chain ring keeps them close at hand. Constructed of zinc plated steel for durability

If you haven’t found just the right gift off this list, more great ideas in upcoming blogs!!!

Off roading is one of the most exciting and enjoyable ways to spend a weekend. While off-roading you will encounter beautiful scenery and meet new friends along the trails. It can also be a very demanding sport, which challenges drivers. The trails contain terrain that many drivers have never driven on before, this is why all drivers should follow these guidelines in order to safely return home.

Share Your Plans – It is important that you share your off-roading plans with relatives or friends. This will insure that someone other than you knows your location and the day and time that you plan on returning. If you do not arrive within an acceptable time of when you planned, your friends will be able to provide the location where you planned to off-road.

Have A Backup Vehicle – In the case of your off-roading vehicle becoming damaged beyond repair on the trails, you should always have another vehicle available to use as a backup. Having an extra vehicle will allow you to return home and tow your off-roading vehicle back. You will also be able to pull your vehicle if it should become stuck. A backup vehicle is always a good idea.

Have An Emergency Kit – As prepared as all drivers like to think they are, you never know for sure what may happen on the trail. If a situation arises where you become stuck or injured you will want to have access to an emergency kit. Your emergency kit should be stocked with first aid supplies as well as food and water.

Always Wear A Seatbelt – This is especially important to do while off-roading. The trails that you will be driving on are not as well kept as the roads at home. You and your passengers will be jostled and thrown around on the trail. Wearing a seatbelt will help keep you from becoming injured while driving or in the case of an accident.

These are only a few safety tips to remember, it is our goal to help keep you safe so that you can enjoy your time out on the trails.

With winter on the horizon, it is time to remind drivers of the dangers of driving in the snow. You never know when a storm can suddenly develop and leave roads a mess, this is why all drivers who live in an area that experiences winter driving conditions should be aware of safety precautions that are necessary if you happen to become trapped in your vehicle. Every weather situation is different but the following safety guidelines apply to all situations and can save your life.

Winter driving conditions offer their own unique type of hazards, which is why drivers should always have a winter survival kit in their vehicles. The survival kit should be loaded with food, clothing, water, an extra cell phone battery and blankets.

The food that you add to your survival kit should be dry packaged foods that will last for a long time. Foods of this nature include granola bars, trail mix, nuts, crackers and some types of candy. If you decide to add canned foods to your emergency kit, make sure that they have a lid that can be easily removed, such as a pull tab. This will allow you to access the food inside without going nuts trying to find a way to open the can. If you are willing to spend a few more dollars, you may want to add MRE meals that are available at military surplus stores as well as outdoor oriented stores.

Your kit should also contain extra clothing that can be used to provide warmth while you are stuck. The extra clothing should consist of boots, gloves, socks a blanket or sleeping bag. If you happen to get wet while venturing outside of your vehicle you will be grateful for the dry change of clothes.

Becoming stranded in the winter can also cause drivers to become dehydrated. It is important to have some extra bottles of water or Gatorade. This will help prevent dehydration. If you do not have access to fresh water, you can always eat snow or allow it to melt in order to drink.

These are just a few tips to help you stay safe in the winter months. Always be prepared and you will survive anything.

Old and New Ladder Bar


A ladder bar is a type of suspension unit that is installed on 4X4’s to prevent wheel hop on vehicles that have a coil spring. When installed the ladder bar is attached to the rear of the vehicle at the spring perch and is then attached to the chassis in front of the rear tires. When the driver steps on the gas and the vehicle the accelerator is pushed and the tires begin to gain traction. If you have a ladder installed it will prevent the rear tires from hopping up off the pavement. Wheel hopping has been shown to cause damage to the rear end, axles, body and chassis if a ladder bar is not installed.

When installed in an off-road vehicle, a ladder bar is used to provide better traction. By preventing the rear end of the vehicle and the front axle from rotating the 4X4 becomes more stable in situations where poor traction is experienced. The installation of a ladder bar also upgrades the braking system of the vehicle by limiting the amount of slop that a wrapped up axle produces.

The length and placement of the ladder bar controls the vehicles center point. The center point is an imaginary line which runs from the rear axle to the center of the chassis where the top and bottom control arms intersect. By moving the center point closer to the actual center of the vehicle, traction is improved because more downward pressure is placed on the tires. If the ladder bar is placed in a shortened area, the moving of the center will reduce the amount of traction on the vehicle. Placement of the ladder bar is crucial when used in an off-road vehicle, proper placement insures that the suspension will provide better traction and reduce the amount of slipping.

The ladder bar got its name from the design that was chosen. It is constructed of two long bars with several small bars placed in between. The end result is a design that resembles a ladder. A ladder bar tends to be wider at the rear and continues to get smaller as it goes up. A ladder bar is attached to the existing suspension system using helm joints and grade eight bolts. The decision to install a ladder bar is one that only the owner of the vehicle can make; it is up to you to decide if a ladder bar should be installed.

There are many benefits to becoming a member in an off road club. Some of these benefits include getting a lower insurance rate, participating in local off-roading events and making new friends who share the same passion as you do. Other benefits include off-roading on trails that you may not have had access to if you weren’t a member of an off road club. There are usually fees associated with becoming a member of a club, but many off-roaders feel that it is money well spent.

As a member of a local off road club, you may also benefit from special deals that the club has made with various businesses in your area. Some of these may include discounts on road service if your vehicle should become damaged. Other deals may be lower prices on auto insurance as well as discounts at repair shops. Becoming a member of an off road club, also proves to repair shops that you are dedicated and take the sport seriously which may lead to you becoming a valuable client to their business.

Becoming a member of an off road club will also allow you to participate in events that you may have not been able to participate in before. Because you belong to a club, you may find that these events are now more enjoyable than they were when you were attending them on your own.

An event planned by a local club will have all of the safety professionals that are in place to make the event more enjoyable and provide emergency care if something should happen.

By becoming a member of an off road club, you will also be able to bring your family along when you attend events. A club offers members a sense of belonging and safety; it is not uncommon to see families attending events that you attended on your own before you joined a club. There are many benefits to joining an off club, but you need to decide if it is the right choice for you.

2007 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon in sand.
All off-road driving terrain presents its own challenges to the driver. This is part of what makes off-roading so challenging and exciting. Becoming an experienced off-road driver requires knowing how to handle each of the challenges different terrain present. It is especially important to know how to drive successfully in mud and sand. Each of these elements present different types of challenges to the driver and knowing how to handle them will make you a better off-road driver.

When driving in sand and mud it is recommended that always maintain steady momentum to help safely propel vehicle. It is important that you choose a gear that is not too low for mud driving. Using too low of a gear in mud will only cause your tires to spin and you will just be wasting time. If your wheels begin to spin simply ease of the gas and let the tires get their traction again. If you’re driving in sand it is recommended to use a lower gear, especially early in the morning when sand is still firm.

If you are driving through the mud on a trail that has a lot of ruts, it is important that you always know which way your front wheels are pointing at all times. Keeping track of the location of your wheels will help you steer your vehicle and keep it from following ruts that may lead to a dangerous situation. Following established ruts in muddy terrain is a good way of knowing which way was successful for other drivers, but you also want to always be in control of your vehicle.
When driving on sand it is suggested that you follow the proper driving technique for the type of sand you are currently driving on. If you are on wet sand you want to be very careful. Wet sand may contain areas of floating sand or quicksand and these situations can become dangerous if you are not prepared for them.

If you are driving in a sandy area that features sand dunes, it is recommended that you do not attempt to drive over them. You should always go around them, you can’t be too sure of how stable and what dangers may be hidden under the sand.

There are two types of Wrangler owners. The first type of owner is the occasional off-roader who really buys the vehicle because they want to pretend they live in a world where they go mudding to release some steam, but really the only mud they come across is when the go camping at one of those pre-set, paved campsites with hanging numbers, no smoking or booze allowed. Then there is the type of Wrangler owner who needs an ARB Rockbar Bull Bar Bumper in Black for 07-09 Jeep Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK.

This ARB Rockbar Bull Bar Bumper will help to protect them from the enemies that lurk beneath the mud and bumps. The Wrangler owners who need this type of bumper are the ones who can’t pass up a muddy road that leads to nowhere even if their lives depended on it. These are the types of guys who are always getting called by their wives wondering why it is taking so long to pick-up dinner.

The ARB Rockbar Bull Bar Bumper in Black for 07-09 Jeep Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK is made to offer maximum protection to model year 2007-2900 Wrangles and Wrangler Unlimited. They have been clever enough to improve the approach angle and make the fit tighter to the frame than the older models. They have also flared out the wings to help accommodate over-sized wheels for the true off-road ranger.

When a Jeep has one of these bumpers attached it pretty much means the sky is the limit when it comes to getting off-road. This thing will allow the driver to clear through brush without fear of damaging the vehicle. The sturdy construction will allow you to have the peace of mind to run through thicker areas of bushes, small trees and other pesky things that go bump on the off road.

Another nice thing is that they have also made it to it can accommodate auxiliary lights and winch models made by warn. It can be had at Xtremeterrain.com for under $800 which is way less than a lot of other places.
