JK Wrangler Wrenchings

Posted in News on December 28, 2013

That’s right, Jp magazine’s ’07 Wrangler Rubicon is finally getting some modifications. We’ve learned all we can about the vehicle in its current state of build, which includes a budget Daystar spacer lift, JKS control arms, Dynatrac replacement front housing with RCV shafts, and some nice Synergy rocker and undercarriage armor. It’s time to forge ahead and mix things up. What’s next for our little two-door? First off is finding a replacement NSG370 six-speed since after almost 90,000 miles the factory tranny is shot. We’ll be taking the tranny replacement as an opportunity to highlight a cool product we worked with Centerforce to develop…but more on that later. Until the tranny situation is sorted, we’ll focus on prepping the Jeep to run one of only a few sets of Falken’s new Wildpeak M/T tires in the country. And to do that, rather than lift the Jeep higher we’re replacing the factory fenders with some Modern Classic Enterprises Hi-Clearance Gen III Flexible Carbon Fiber Fenders. If you’re a JK guy, keep your eyes on upcoming issues of Jp for the changes we’re making to our ’07 and a cool build treatment Feature Editor Simons is doing to a ’13 Wrangler he just picked up.
