<![CDATA[Answers to All Your Jeep Questions]]> http://www.omix-ada.com/presscoverage/fourwheeler-answers-all-your-jeep-questions/

I've been getting Jp since I bought my first Wrangler in July 2016. I have a ’16 Rubicon Unlimited that I purchased new. I had a Rubicon Express 2.5-inch lift professionally installed right after buying the Jeep. I recently added 285/75R17 tires, Mickey Thompson Classic rims, and Rough Country front geometry correction brackets. I asked the shop to do a front alignment while there, and that's when the drama started. The shop informed me the camber specs were the worst they had ever seen. One side measured negative 1 degree and the other side negative 0.6 degrees. The tech said they normally only see something like this on Jeeps with lots of miles and wear. My Jeep only has 4,700 miles with no real off-roading at this point! You can see the slant of the tire on the passenger side with the naked eye. The shop is suggesting that I may have a factory defect in the front axle.

<![CDATA[‘Hurst Edition’ Jeep Project to Raise Pediatric Cancer Awareness]]> http://www.omix-ada.com/presscoverage/the-shopmag-ruggedridge-jeep-project-charity/

Omix-ADA has partnered with the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer on a Jeep build to help raise awareness and increase support for the nonprofit’s cause.

The inspiration for the build comes from one of the rarest Jeeps ever produced: The 1971 Jeep Hurst Edition Commando. Based off of a basic two-door wagon, the Jeep Commando was treated to a host of styling goodies by Hurst Performance, including a hood-mounted tachometer, air scoop, dual-gate shifter, special Hurst badging and its legendary Champagne White paint with red and blue striping.

Welcome back to another installment of our new series Come Ride With Me! This series shows you exactly what it is like to live with a vehicle. On this episode we take a look at Tommy’s own personal vehicle, a lifted 2016 Jeep Wrangler Sport that has seen a number of mild and also wild modifications.

Visual Mods and Accessories

Many of Tommy’s modifications on his Jeep are aesthetic mods. He has a set of Bestop front and rear steel bumpers to replace the plastic ones that came stock from Jeep. On the front bumper is a pair of Rugged Ridge LED lights as well as a beefy Warn winch. The soft-top was also provided to us by Bestop, giving Tommy easy access to the great outdoors. One of the more recent additions was the new spare wheel mount for the tailgate from Rugged Ridge. Now that he has an upgraded spare mount, he is able to carry a full-size 35″ spare tire at all times, perfect for going off-road.

Rugged Ridge eats, sleeps and breathes Jeep. They’re always looking for ways to make the Jeep Lifestyle more accessible and more enjoyable. So when I heard that they just came out with a new antenna mount that allows you to combine AM, FM and CB reception into a CB antenna, and mount it in the factory FM antenna location, I kicked myself. I was mad at myself for the time I had wasted researching, YouTubing, forum posting, trying to learn about how to purchase and mount a CB antenna. The new antenna mount kit from Rugged Ridge would have saved me time, and given me better performance. Read on and I’ll tell you more about this snazzy little gizmo.

The team behind Toledo Jeep Fest said Tuesday they have secured a number of key partnerships -- including agreements with Dana Inc. and ProMedica -- and are about halfway to their lofty goal of raising $300,000 to put on the highly anticipated event next August.

Registration is also now up and running for both people who want to enter their Jeeps in the show or parade, and for vendors.

"That's important because we're anticipating between 60, maybe to 100 vendors to come and participate in the event. A lot of these will be Jeep aftermarket and suppliers that are interested in the customer base we're going to be able to accumulate," said Jerry Huber, chairman of the Toledo Jeep Fest Steering Committee and a former manager of the city's Jeep plant.

Last week during SEMA we released a video on our social media pages about counterfeiters exhibiting at the show. In that video we spoke with Pat Johnson from Omix-ADA about companies attending SEMA that had violated patents on some of Omix-ADA’s products, and one that had produced a counterfeit product for display. SEMA and AAPEX officials worked with Omix to handle this situation discretely. When these companies failed to meet with officials at the SEMA show office to surrender product and print materials, officials made their way to the booths of these exhibitors to enforce court paperwork.

Win against Chinese counterfeiters for US automotive manufacturer – A Georgia-based car accessories producer has won verdicts of patent and trademark infringement against a number of Chinese companies. Interestingly, Omix-ADA noticed the infringement at the Speciality Equipment Market Association (SEMA) trade show in Las Vegas, where counterfeits of its products were being sold. Reporting the victory, Plastics Today notes that trade shows are often an important environment in which brand owners can spot fake versions of their products. As has been previously argued in World Trademark Review, the key is to take swift action, which means being ready to act at first sight of infringing goods. (AH)

This is not fake news … but it is news about fakes: A US District Court has made a decision in favor of Omix-ADA, a company who complained of a Chinese company selling copies of their Jeep accessories.

You may recall the story of well-known U.S.-based Jeep accessory manufacturer Omix-ADA filing a complaint with the U.S District Court against Unity 4WD Accessories Co., a Chinese company hawking Jeep accessories which were suspiciously similar to products trademarked by other companies, proving once again that the term copyright infringement doesn’t seem to translate terribly well into Mandarin.

At the 2016 SEMA show in Las Vegas, the Guangzhou company was served with legal papers, quickly followed by a search and seizure operation which placed a temporary halt to the alleged illegal activity.

Three off-shore automotive companies have been ordered to immediately cease manufacturing, importing and selling Jeep aftermarket products in the U.S., after a district court judge ruled their parts violated patents and trademarks held by Omix-ADA, a leading Jeep aftermarket manufacturing giant.

Guangzhou Vcan Electronic Technology Co., Ltd., Shenzhen Unisun Technology Co., Ltd., and Unity 4WD Accessories Co., Ltd were all found in violation by Chief Judge Gloria M. Navarro of the U.S District Court, District of Nevada after each company declined to agree to settlement terms, Omix-ADA said in a company press release earlier this month. These three companies were also ordered to destroy all product, marketing materials and catalogs, while surrendering any manufacturing tooling.

The new Circular LED Third Brake Light ($93.99 MSRP) from Rugged Ridge is available for the 1987-2017 Jeep Wrangler, and addresses a problem that plagues lifted Jeeps as well as provides an effective solution.

When a vehicle is lifted above factory ride height and a larger diameter wheel and tire is used on the rear of the vehicle, the third brake light is moved upward, out of the normal field of vision. It is often obstructed by the spare tire, making it virtually useless. Many times the third brake light is removed altogether, creating a potentially serious safety concern.

You may remember that during last year’s SEMA show in Las Vegas, U.S. Marshals raided several aftermarket parts companies’ booths for copyright infringement. The whole story started when Omix-ADA/Rugged Ridge, a giant in the Jeep parts market, filed a complaint, alleging several competitors have been copying its component designs almost exactly.

Then the story suddenly dropped out of the news. Like so many legal matters, this one has been fought out in a courtroom without reporters hanging on each word. We finally have an outcome. Some of the accused parts companies agreed to settle the case with Omix-ADA, but others refused. Now, a U.S. District Court just passed down an injunction on Guangzhou Vcan Electronic Technology Co., Ltd; Shenzen Unisun Technology Co., Ltd.; and Unity 4WD Accessories Co., Ltd., ordering them to stop manufacturing, importing, or selling any parts in violation effective immediately.

On Nov. 7, 2016, I wrote an article about how trade shows are excellent places to find your knocked-off products. The company I wrote about had called in the Feds at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas when it spotted a vendor selling counterfeit products belonging to Omix-ADA, a Suwanee, GA–based manufacturer of high-quality Jeep, truck and off-road accessories. Based on the merits of the claim, U.S. Marshalls executed search and seizure operations at the SEMA venue, as well as the concurrent AAPEX show happening nearby, and placed a temporary halt to the alleged illegal activity.

Today, in a release from the company, Omix-ADA announced that a decision has been handed down in the case of several off-shore companies accused of patent and trademark infringement, as well as participating in the manufacture of counterfeit products.

It’s time to get the new Chevy Colorado ZR2 on a proper Colorado Rocky Mountain trail. Huge thanks to Chris Laney for bringing his ZR2 all the way from Phoenix, Arizona to test it on the Cliffhanger 2.0 trail.

The ZR2 is purpose-built off-road pickup truck. It’s got the hardware to backup its tougher looks. This particular truck is powered by the 3.6L V6 with 308 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque, although a 2.8L turbo-diesel I4 is also available for an additional $3,500. The power is to a proper 4×4 system with low range transfer case and front/rear lockers via an 8-speed automatic transmission. The ZR2 has more ground clearance and a much better approach angle than any other Chevy Colorado currently available. It is the only midsize pickup truck with front and rear locking differentials. The 31-inch Goodyear Duratrac tires put the power down.

The custom Jeep craze in America has created a peculiar conundrum. On one hand, numerous aftermarket companies are creating kick-ass parts, and if you venture out to Moab, Utah chances are you will see these components being put to good use. Wheelin’ with your buddies on the weekend is about as American as apple pie and Sunday Night Football, a time-honored tradition that favors rocky trails and massive amounts of mud more than anything else.

While dedicated hot-hatches and high performance sports sedans will always retain a special place in my heart, there’s something undeniably badass about kicking Mother Nature’s ass for an afternoon. This is what Wranglers were bred for since day one, and by going out and getting them dirty, we are solidifying their claim to the 4×4 throne.

Back in June, I took a trip down to the Atlanta area to visit Omix-ADA/Rugged Ridge. While down there with a number of other journalists we toured their warehouse and museum and got to take several of their historic Jeeps for a drive around the industrial park in which the offices resides. We also took several modified JK Jeeps out to drive offroad through some North Georgia trails and through a few water crossings.

One of the Jeeps that we drove on the trail, the one they called Mango, was shipped up to Detroit and put in the local press fleet. For whatever reason, most pubs didn’t so much as get the rig dirty. When I was contacted to see if I’d like to review the Mango Jeep, I said SURE and in doing so was determined to drive it in the environment it was designed for, as well as see how it did the daily grind.

A core safety requirement of heading out on an off-road adventure is having a properly sized spare tire available. Jeeps have had a spare tire mounted to the back of them for decades; there is no space in the cargo area for it, nor is there any space to tuck it under the body.

The rear tailgate and hinges are made from stamped steel, and were designed to support the load of a factory-ish sized tire. However, with the extra pounds of upgraded wheels and tires, they no longer has the strength, nor longevity.

<![CDATA[Rugged Ridge Spartacus Heavy Duty Tire Carrier]]> http://www.omix-ada.com/presscoverage/grab-a-wrench-spartacus-tire-carrier/

Earlier this week, Rugged Ridge released their brand-new Spartacus Heavy Duty Tire Carrier for 1997-2006 Jeep Wrangler TJ models. The carrier is designed to enable TJ owners to carry up to a 37-inch tire without the added expense of switching to an aftermarket rear bumper. The heavy-duty aluminum tire carrier replaces the TJ’s factory tailgate hinges entirely with a substantially stronger hinge assemble. The carrier is made of cast aluminum and is fitted with hardened steel hinge pins for smooth, one-handed operation.

Jeep XJ Cherokees are known to run hot, especially when taxed for long periods of time by hill climbs or slow-speed rock crawling. However, despite the fact that our ’89 XJ’s 4.0L I-6 was a great-running engine, some hot summer days the coolant system was happy as could be; on other days when the weather was cooler, it might boil over. We knew the radiator was in good shape and not terribly old. It had a fairly fresh water pump, fan clutch, thermostat, coolant recovery tank and cap; and there seemed to be no discernable pattern between driving at highway speed, commuting around town, or slowly idling down a trail.

The internet has been awash with spy photos of the upcoming 2018 Jeep Wrangler. Mild hybrids, eight-speed automatics, and a slightly more modern look will define the next body-on-frame Wrangler, while a production model will show up in late November of this year.

Until then, the aftermarket remains hot for the current JK. From model-specific recovery gear to lift kits that laugh in the face of rocky Moab trails, there is no shortage of products to hoover cash from a Jeeper’s wallet.

Southern hospitality at its finest is our best description of the 2nd Annual Omix-ADA Rugged Ridge Jeep Heritage Expo. While still in its infancy, the event is growing and gaining popularity. It drew in more than 300 Jeeps to the one-day show. Jeepers traveled from the surrounding states to show off their mildly to wildly built vehicles at this Jeep-only event. Every make and model imaginable was in attendance. Beautifully restored stock CJ-5s and 7s, a skillfully built J4000 on 1-ton axles and 40s, more JK Wranglers than you could count, and of course several flatfenders. Folks could escape the heat and humidity by stepping inside to tour the renowned Jeep collection or take a guided tour of the warehouse.

The Jeep aftermarket is huge and they're right in the thick of it, providing parts for classic Jeeps all the way through to 2016 models. When Dave Logan told us that we should stop by and visit them at the SEMA Show, it was a no-brainer. Omix-ADA has a cool collection of early Jeeps, many of which wear tires from our Military | Truck catalog. Dave told us they'd have a few cool old Jeeps in their display, and he wasn't kidding! From the fully-implemented CJ-2A Farm Jeep to the not-even-broken-in-yet original 2k mile 1978 J-20, they had some seriously cool old Jeeps on display. Their business is Jeeps new and old, and their passion is easy to see. The fact that some of these old Jeeps had our tires on them, makes it even better!

Founder and President Al Azadi first came to the States at age 24 and started Omix-ADA right years later in ‘92. He started out buying some surplus parts and worked tirelessly day-to-night to convince his first customers to give him a chance. The work paid off.

<![CDATA[There’s Nothing Like Light Off-Roading in a Heavy-Duty Overlander]]> http://www.omix-ada.com/presscoverage/gear-patrol-/

Overlanding is a pastime of relative excess. Compared to the regular rigors of everyday motoring, an overlander’s bigger tires, lifted suspension, snorkel system, high-lift jack, exterior roll cage and flood lights are all overkill. But, as stated, that’s all relative. Compared to the average overlander, all those optional extras are par for course — and for some, it’s the bare minimum.

Omix-ADA, the owner of Rugged Ridge and organizer of the Jeep Heritage Expo invited me down to Georgia a few days before the Expo in order to get an idea of what it is they actually do and to test its aftermarket Jeep accessories first-hand in the field. And, as the single largest independent supplier of Jeep accessories and parts, Rugged Ridge specializes in all things Jeep. Which means, when they go to deck out a Wrangler, they don’t hold back.

England has the Land Rover, Germany has the G-Wagon, Japan has the FJ, and the U.S. has the Jeep. And, like the others, our four-wheelin’ hero was born out of the WWII war effort and then converted for civilian use soon after the fighting stopped. Its original purpose was to cart our soldiers confidently across the broken terrain that was Europe, so it’s no surprise that when it took up civilian duties, it made for one hell of an off-roader.

For the most part, a car’s success and acclaim in never planned. A manufacturer can do its best to make a great vehicle, but once the car leaves the factory, all there is to do is hope the people love it. The closest a car maker can come to controlling the fanfare is keeping the production number low (cars like a rare Ferrari or the new Ford GT, are made in small numbers, creating a level of desire, intrigue). And that’s exactly why the CJ-5 Super Jeep is such a lovable car — its rarity, its cult status, its very existence — its the result of a mistake.

With a legacy dating back three quarters of a century, the Jeep is surely one of the world’s most iconic vehicle platforms. From the U.S. Government’s initial call for a four-wheel drive light personnel carrier in 1940, to pioneering the Rubicon Trail in the 1950s and setting the standard of 21st-century capability, the seven-slot grill has a place, not only in the hearts of Americans, but with backcountry enthusiasts the world over. During the recent recession when the brand was struggling financially, they closed their museum and unfortunately, liquidated its inventory. Although it was an economic necessity at the time, gone was one of the most comprehensive Jeep collections on the planet. All is not lost, however, as a few years ago the guys at Omix-ADA (Rugged Ridge/Alloy USA) began acquiring rare models with a plan to create a museum of their own.

For more than 75 years, Americans have been in love with Jeeps. Even as the SUV has been developed into a fast, great-handling, and luxurious segment of the vehicle market, the basic Jeep MB/CJ/Wrangler has remained more or less unchanged. In truth, if Jeep ever did change the basic formula, they would risk destroying the cult appeal of the vehicle. So what is it about Jeeps that has captured the imagination of millions over the decades? Why do people continue to buy these Spartan four-Wheel-Drive boxes on wheels?

“I think everybody wants to own a Jeep at some point in their life,” says Pearse Umlauf, President of Jeep Jamboree. “And by Jeep I don’t mean a Cherokee or a Grand Cherokee or a Patriot or something like that. I mean one that’s descended from the original army Jeeps.”

We see a lot of Jeeps; I mean a lot of Jeeps. And as you well know from reading the pages of Jp Magazine or logging on to jpmagazine.com, “show” rigs are not exactly our forte. Sure, if it has nice shiny paint, spiffed-up wheels, and looks like it’s cleaned on a regular basis, we’re all good with that; as long as it’s got a lot of “go” in it. That’s why when we first laid eyes on the ’87 Jeep Grand Wagoneer built by Troy Tertany and Tony Durbano at the 2016 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, we were intrigued, but a tiny bit skeptical. That initial skepticism fell away quickly the day we saw it roar up the canyon for our photo shoot.

Sometimes a project requires hitting the restart button. I found this Red 1961 Willys Wagon in a garage where it had sat since 1978 with a blown Ford Y-block V-8 engine (by “blown” I mean blown apart, not supercharged—it literally had a hole in the side). I drug it home and did a new V-8 swap in record time for a video, but in doing so the Jeep could go but not really stop, as we had adapted a new V-8 to the tired old drivetrain. The steering wasn’t great, the gearbox was leaking, and both old axles were due for a rebuild. Plus there was a giant hole where the firewall had been because I didn’t have time to finish it. One night I was trying to move it around the workshop and it ran into another vehicle because of the lack of brakes. It wasn’t bad, but I was annoyed with this cool-looking Jeep with a nice new engine that was still undrivable. I parked it and stewed on it for almost a year.

<![CDATA[Jeep Wrangler Interior Rehash]]> http://www.omix-ada.com/presscoverage/driveline-interior-rehash/

Buying a used vehicle always has its pros and cons. For many, the allure of the perceived good deal is often too tempting to pass up. When it comes to the ’97-’06 Jeep Wrangler TJ, you can now pick them up for a fraction of what they were going for just a few years ago. This is partly due to JK prices finally starting to settle.

We picked up this ’97 Wrangler a few months back for a deal, with the understanding that it was in need of some TLC. One of the most obvious areas of age was the interior. Spending most of its life in Southern California, the Wrangler was a pretty exciting East Coast find considering the lack of rust that’s more common for Jeeps in North Carolina. While we were thrilled about a frame and body with a clean bill of health, the inside of the 20-year-old Wrangler was in rough shape.

<![CDATA[Rugged Ridge Magnetic Panels for Jeep Wrangler]]> http://www.omix-ada.com/presscoverage/off-road-magnetic-panel-install/

When we get a new Jeep—at least “new” to us—or an actual brand-new off-the-showroom-floor Wrangler, we want to keep it as pristine for as long as we can. But how can we keep our Wranglers scratch- and dent-free when we wheel in the desert, rock crawl in the mountains, or park at the mall?

Inconsiderate shoppers seem to be drawn to new cars like bees to water, and they usually don’t care if their doors dent your doors or not. Rock crawling in the mountains magically seems to cause branches and pine cones to scratch the flat panels on your rig, and desert wheeling can see cactus pinstriping messing up your polish.

Upgrading the steering on my 1973 Jeep CJ-5 sounded like a pretty easy job. The Jeep I call Lemon Pie is a junkyard rescue with a 258ci straight-six. You may recall it from a bygone adventure when I fixed it up (barely) and drove it across America in the “CA to PA in a CJ” road trip (read about it in the March, April, and May 2012 issues of 4WOR). The Jeep has manual drum brakes and manual steering, but these early 1970s CJs were available with optional power steering. I assumed this meant I should be able to just walk into the local parts store, tell them I need everything to reduce my manly manual-steering biceps down to puny power-steering twigs, and leave with an afternoon of wrenching ahead of me as I unbolt old stuff and bolt on new stuff. Simple eh? Yeah . . . nope!

If you drive your 4x4 hard enough, you'll find the weak points on the vehicle. While nobody likes breaking down on the trail, it's an inevitable reality for many. Preventative maintenance is one to keep from being stranded, but your trail prep shouldn't end there. On vehicles such as the '97-'06 Jeep Wrangler TJ, a major weak link can be found with the Dana 30's front axleshafts. In stock form, the 1040 steel 'shafts are plenty adequate. However, when you add in heavier and oversized tires into the equation, akibg with a front traction aid such as a differential locker, the 'shafts and U-joints are known to fail.

As I said in an earlier article, when building a daily driver for an avid off-roader, who also happens to be a high school student in Southern California, one has to consider California's more stringent vehicle regulations. For instance, all tire treads have to be covered by the vehicle's fenders to reduce the likelihood of road debris being thrown up by the tires. A set of Rugged Ridge extended fender dlares takes care of these requirements for the SoCal Cherokee. You should check the regulations for the state in which you reside, as these same requirements may pertain to you

The company filed a civil complaint with the U.S. District Court and obtained a summons and civil action for a temporary restraining order and seizure of goods. U.S. Marshals served papers to the company's representatives, and ordered the display dismantled and the goods in question removed.

<![CDATA[Things Get Real At SEMA As Feds Seize Chinese Aftermarket Parts Booth]]> http://www.omix-ada.com/presscoverage/jalopnik-chinese-aftermarket/

It's a known fact that Chinese knockoffs occasionally float around the automotive industry. SEMA is no exception, and this year, the feds got involved.

On Wednesday, federal marshals raided two booths owned by Chinese companies, reports Automotive News. Four Wheeler was able to capture the event on video.

They seized parts, displays and communications equipment from a complaint filed on Tuesday by Omix- ADA, a manufacturer of aftermarket Jeep parts. Omix claimed patent infringement and asserted that: the Chinese companies were displaying and selling knock-offs of several of its patented aftermarket parts. Those parts included replacement hood latches, light mount assemblies and front grilles for the Jeep Wrangler.

JP Magazine contributor Traci Clark was a first-hand witness to an offshore exhibitor being served papers at the 2016 SEMA Show. Well-Known U.S.-based Jeep accessory manufacturer Omix-ADA noticed suspiciously familiar products being displayed at the show by Unity 4WD Accessories Co., Limited of Guangzhou, China. The company filed a civil complaint with the U.S. District Court and obtained a summons and civil action for a temporary restraining order and seizure of goods. U.S. Marshals served papers to the company's representatives, and ordered the display dismantled and the goods in question removed.

From what we could gather from the photos we could get of the papers, it appears the company's representatives will be required to appear in U.S. court within 21 days for a hearing.

<![CDATA[Breaking: Eight Aftermarket Companies Raided by US Marshals at SEMA]]> http://www.omix-ada.com/presscoverage/bestride-sema-2016-raid/

For years, there's been a buzz around the Specialty Equipment Manufacturer's Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas that offshore companies were reverse-engineering knockoff products and then displaying them with impunity at SEMA and at the nearby Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX). On Wednesday, eight companies had their booths shuttered and their inventory raided by Federal Marshals at those two shows, accused of multiple copyright and trademark violations.

The accusations stemmed from complaint from Omix-ADA, which is the world's largest independent producer of aftermarket accessories for Jeep vehicles, alleging that the companies were counterfeiting numerous Omix-ADA products, including bumpers and the company's popular Spartan Grille

The booths of two Chinese companies appearing at the Specialty Equipment Market Association convention and six others at the nearby Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo have been shut down after raids conducted by federal marshals.

Authorities indicate the investigation took place following an emergency lawsuit filed by aftermarket Jeep parts manufacturer Omix-ADA alleged that the Chinese companies were offering counterfeit versions of a number of its products, including bumpers, grilles and hood latches. Omix, which maintains that it is the "world's largest independent manufacturer and wholesaler of Jeep parts and accessories," says that inferior knock-offs of its products have been available online through sites like Amazon and Ebay for a number of years.

American companies doing business in China have run into widespread intellectual property theft, right down to entire factories (with signs) being duplicated. The problem shows no sign of abating; indeed, at least eight Chinese companies allegedly displayed their fakes at the SEMA auto-aftermarket show this week.

Omix-ADA, the largest independent maker of Jeep parts and accessories, recently go subpoenas against eight Chinese companies for copyright and trademark violations. Federal marshals raided two Chinese companies' booths in the convention center yesterday; six others were raided at the nearby Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (Chandzhou Jiulong Auto Lamps, Gangzhou Vcan Electronic Technology, Maxgrand Ltd., Sanmak Lighting, Shenzen Unisun Technology, and Unity 4wd Accessories.)

Omix-ADA just might have stolen the show at SEMA 2016 this year, all due to the crackdown on Chinese parts counterfeiters. It's kind of hard to get past the fact that the U.S. Marshals came in and raided Chinese companies both at SEMA and the APPEX show after Omix-ADA filed and emergency suit over counterfeited Jeep Wrangler parts, but the company did have pretty neat show setup just past the media center. In fact, it wasn't the raid at all that got my attention, but the super-sano 1966 Jeep Wagoneer coupled with an early 1960s travel trailer sitting at the top of the escalator. You couldn't miss the ivory white body and the dog dishes as you got close to it, and that wasn't all...

"Get your kids into Jeeps and they won't have money for drugs!"

That's the long-running joke with more than a little truth behind it. It's well-known that when kids have constructive and heathly hobby that they're less likely to get into trouble and do better in school.

That kind of thinking is exactly what led the Pickens County, Georgia Sheriff's Office to decide to take a '99 Wrangler TJ Sport seized from a known drug dealer and turn it into a Community Relations vehicle.

Jeep accessory manufacturer Omix-ADA is partnering with SEMA Cares, the charitable arm of the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) for the fourth time in building and displaying a Jeep Wrangler at the 2016 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

This year’s Wrangler was built by Petty’s Garage in North Carolina, founded by NASCAR race legend Richard Petty.

The build showcases Omix-ADA’s line of Rugged Ridge accessories for the JK Wrangler, some of which will be seen for the first time at the show. Proceeds from the auction of this year’s featured Jeep will go to Victory Junction, a camp for children with chronic and serious illnesses, founded in memory of Adam Petty, Richard Petty’s grandson, who was killed in a race accident in 2000.

Our third shipment from Rugged Ridge arrived today. Five boxes filled with goodies This shipment is for our third phase of the Roadfly Black Bear Jeep Build. We did a 4.5-inch suspension lift in our first phase. See Installation of 4.5 inch Rugged Ridge Lift Kit with Shocks and Completion of Rugged Ridge 4.5 Lift Kit with Shocks. We added super strong Rugged Ridge XHD steel bumpers, winch, trailer hitch and reinforced Spartacus tire carrier for our second phase. See Second Shipment from Rugged Ridge, Phase 2 Begins and Installation of Rugged Ridge Bumpers, Winch, Spare Tire Carrier and Hitch. For our third phase we decided to upgrade our existing lights and add additional LED off-road lights.

Old school off-road lighting was typically 6 inch round lights with 100 watt halogen light bulbs. Think KC Hilites. Some off-roaders would run 4 to 6 on a light bar across the top of the windshield. Others put one on each A pillar. Some put two on the front striker bar. And then still others would do all or some combination of the above. This usually resulted in a significant additional draw on the Jeep’s electrical system of between 600 and 1,000 watts. That much energy consumption usually involved some type of upgrade to the Jeep’s original electrical system. With the improvements in lighting technology, most off-roaders have gone to LED’s, significantly reducing the energy consumption and largely eliminating the requirement of any electrical system upgrade.

<![CDATA[JKS 2.5 Jeep Wrangler Suspension Review [Video]]]> http://www.omix-ada.com/presscoverage/drivingline/

Jeep got plenty of things right when it moved to the Wrangler JK platform in 2007. With better steering, axles and suspension, both the two- and four-door Unlimited models make for an extremely easy-to-build and versatile platform. Recently, we shoehorned on a set of 35x12.50R17 Nitto Ridge Grapplers under our ’13 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. Given the relatively small budget boost it was running, we experienced a fair amount of rubbing from the tires off-road.

We prefer to keep our Jeeps with a low amount of lift for the benefit of maintaining a low center of gravity. The challenge with the JK is often how to balance the ride quality and performance at such a low lift height. Looking to give our 35’s more breathing room and enhance the ride quality, we decided to install a 2.5-inch JKS Suspension System. The JSEPC suspension is ideal for our application, where a modest lift height is sought, but on- and off-road ride quality is extremely important.

In 1973, AMC's suppliers were ablt to keep up with the production of most of the Renegade's parts, but according to Patrick Foster in his book, "The Story of Jeep," Renegades sold so well that AMC had run out of the aluminum wheels that were part of the package.

This kit requires the use of a drop pitman arm (part#18006.55) separate from the kit and we also ordered a few additional parts for the front end (adjustable track bar (part#18205.08), inverted drag link (part#18205.23) and a steering stabilizer (part#18475.03)). When I spoke with the guys at RR regarding the kit they said that on their rigs they just install the kit and the pitman arm so we'll see once we finish our install whether the additional front-end parts make a difference."

Organizers of the Toledo Jeep Fest are expecting visitors and attendees from across the country on Saturday, as thousands descend on the home of Jeep to honor the brand's 75th anniversary and celebrate its contributions to the city.

"Everything's coming together nicely, and thank God for all the volunteers we had who spent countless hours on this," said Bruce Baumhower, president of United Auto Workers Local 12 and the key person in assembling the committee that made the event possible.

"We think we've got everything nailed down, and now we just need the weatherman to help us and it'll be a great day," he said.

As Jeep entered its 75th year, an anniversary sure to be marked with narratives from car lovers and history buffs, officials with the brand were working on how they wanted to tell their own story.

In the end, they decided the story wasn't their own at all.

"We are a brand that is really and truly owned by this incredible global community of fans, followers, and owners, said Kim Adams House, head of Jeep brand advertising. Why wouldn't we let them tell the stories they've experienced using our vehicles?"

Jeep's marketing folks will tell you all about the awards won by the brand. Top four-by-four of this, best sport utility vehicle of that.

But nice as they are, Jeep's accolades go far deeper than a trophy from some magazine.

"The Jeep won World War II. It saved nations. It was part of the rescue of France, of the Philippines. The Jeep vehicle was that important. And in peace times, it's saved a lot of companies as well," said Patrick Foster, an automotive historian and author of Jeep: The History of America's Greatest Vehicle. "I think it's gotta be one of the two or three most important brands in the world."

Omix-ADA, the world’s largest wholesale-only Jeep parts and accessories manufacturer and distributor, recently announced that will be participating in the 2016 Toledo Jeep Fest as an official showcase sponsor. As part of its support of the festival, Omix-ADA will have 10 rare vintage Jeeps from its historic Jeep Collection on display.

Jeep is the root of Toledo’s heritage. The Toledo Jeep plant first opened its doors in 1910 and not long after, in 1945, the first civilian Jeep was produced and made its official debut in Toledo. On August 13th from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m., the Toledo Jeep Fest will honor Toledo, Ohio and its rich Jeep heritage by hosting a Jeep parade through downtown Toledo, an All Jeep Car Show at the SeaGate Convention Centre and select downtown streets, various historical Jeep vehicles, military programming and vendor displays.

While waiting for our lost crush sleeve to show up, we drove around town for two weeks (including a week at Rehoboth Beach) with the rear of the Black Bear 6.5 inches higher then the front. The crush sleeve arrived the day I got back from the beach, so with sleeve in hand, we finally got down to installing the front portion of the Rugged Ridge 4”-5” Coil Spring Lift Kit with Shocks (part#18401.60).

While we thought the Black Bear looked pretty cool with its new aggressive stance, we needed to get her leveled out. So we set out on a Saturday morning to complete the job we started two weeks prior. This kit requires the use of the Rugged Ridge drop pitman arm (part#18006.55) separate from the kit, so if you are ordering the kit make sure you add this part to your order.

With as much aftermarket support as the 2007 to current Jeep Wrangler has, there’s no shortage of customization one can do to their JK. While most of the upgrades we install on our 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon are centered on off-road performance, some are simply out of necessity. Since we purchased our Wrangler used, we were at the mercy of whatever factory options the original purchaser opted for. Unfortunately, one item that we frequently need was missing – a two-inch receiver.

For the last 75 years, Jeep has been a part of U.S. military and civilian life. One company, based not in Detroit but in the Atlanta suburb of Suwanee, Ga., has combined that history with the spirit of the American dream to create a business with 20,000 Jeep parts in stock and a retail value of around $100 million.

OMIX-ADA is the aftermarket parts supplier you've probably never heard of. You may be familiar with its Rugged Ridge and Alloy USA sub-brands. Its business relies on retail outlets including O’Reilly Auto Parts, Amazon, Quadratec, 4WD Hardware, JC Whitney, Summit Racing, 4 Wheel Parts Wholesalers, Morris 4x4, and Keystone Automotive to sell its products. The company also has agreements with more than 500 additional Jeep parts retailers, warehouse distributors, installers, and Internet merchandisers around the world.

The first annual Jeep Heritage Expo kicked off with hundreds of custom Jeeps arranged in different Show & Shine categories along with Omix-ADA’s own 30 rare Jeeps ranging from very early 1941 prototypes to the latest 2016 Wranglers.

Omix-ADA rolled out the red carpet for attendees, inviting them to get an exclusive look at its extensive historic Jeep collection. Highlights of the collection include one of 100 original 1941 Bantam BRC models in existence – to which Jeep owes its historic lineage; a World War II-era Ford GPA amphibious Jeep intended to cross rivers and lakes; and a rare 1946 Willys CJ-2A Jeep originally customized with farming implements. The farm Jeep is equipped with a front PTO winch, an engine driven air compressor, a rear towing boom, a Newgren buzz saw with table, and dual tires for improved stability in the dirt.

When driving off-road at night or even down rural roads, it becomes very apparent that the factory headlights and fog lights leave a lot to be desired, even with the high beams on. In the past, aftermarket off-road lights have played both the part of a functional accessory and as cosmetic 4x4 jewelry. Modern-day aftermarket off-road light offerings are brighter, more compact, and more efficient than ever before. A couple decades ago there were only one or two types of light options. Today, there are three different affordable lighting technologies. These include halogen, high-intensity discharge (HID), and light-emitting diode (LED) off-road lights. Each technology has its advantages and disadvantages. Which light technology is right for you depends on the application and, of course personal preference.

Lovers of Jeeps can’t agree whether the brand’s 75th anniversary fell in 2015 or occurs this year. They can’t even agree on how many types of vehicles can be called Jeeps. But aficionados seem to unite on calling Omix-ADA’s collection of Jeeps one of the most complete.

Omix-ADA says that, except for Jeep itself, it’s the largest maker of parts and accessories for Jeeps, the all-purpose, four-wheel-drive vehicle that became famous during World War II. Until this month, Omix-ADA’s collection of three dozen vintage vehicles has only been accessible by appointment. That changed last weekend with the opening of the Jeep Heritage Expo at Omix-ADA’s headquarters in Suwanee, Ga., about 30 miles northeast of downtown Atlanta.

Not all the gear you buy, build, or bolt to on your Jeep is meant to increase horsepower, torque, traction, or outright performance of any kind. If that’s all you ever thought of, your rig would be great on the trail or a road trip for about an hour, if that. There is another side of that Jeep gear coin, which is the type of gear that makes your trips more comfortable and using your Jeep more convenient. No, we’re not talking about ‘rhoid pillows. We mean things such as ice chests, radios, axes, soft tops, and other products or equipment that won’t make your engine roar but will certainly make trail life more enjoyable. Here are 10 things we like having on or in our Jeeps to make trail rides more comfortable and convenient.

After building an awesome, supremely capable, strikingly attractive Jeep, you may be afraid to leave it at the airport or even take it to the movies. Although you’re proud to show it off, there can be the constant fear it’s going to be stolen. It’s so much fun to drive now that you’ve put all that time, effort, and money into the build, but you do need to protect your investment. LoJack can help find the Jeep if it’s stolen, but steel can help protect its body and components while you’re on the trail. With that in mind, we went shopping for armor.

<![CDATA[Jeep JK Wrangler Front Axle Shaft Removal & Replacement Write-Up ]]> http://www.omix-ada.com/presscoverage/jeep-axle-removal/ omix-ada old schooo

Contrary to what so many people seem to think, the number one reason why factory Rubicon Dana 44 front axle shafts break is not because they're weak but rather, because they come with c-clips. Over time, movement in the bearing caps can cause the c-clips to work themselves free and once they're gone, there's nothing to keep the caps in place. Once one or more bearing cap is gone, it's just a matter of time before the trunnions tear through the ears of axle shaft yokes. While buying a set of overpriced RCV axle shafts is one solution to this problem, a more affordable and just as effective solution is to pick up a set of chromoly axle shafts with u-joints that have full circle clips much like the kind that AlloyUSA makes. Unlike c-clips, full circle clips will completely surround the u-joint bearing caps and that that will prevent them from working themselves free.

<![CDATA[ How to Install U-Joints w/ Full Circle Clips onto a Chromoly Front Axle Shaft + VIDEO ]]> http://www.omix-ada.com/presscoverage/u-joint-install-omix/

In spite of what so many people on the internet will try and tell you, Dana 44 front axle shafts on a Jeep JK Wrangler Rubicon are NOT inherently weak and you do NOT need to go out and buy a set of expensive RCV shafts to prevent breaks. The problem with factory axle shafts is that they utilize c-clips to hold the bearing caps in place and over time, movement in the caps can cause the c-clips to work themselves free. Once the c-clips are gone, there's nothing left to hold the bearing caps in place and if they fall out, it's just a matter of time before the trunnions tear apart the ears of the yokes. That being said, a great solution to help prevent this from happening is to run a good set of chromoly shafts and u-joints with full circle clips, much like the kind that AlloyUSA makes. The full circle clips will not come free of the bearing caps and this alone will help prevent the number one cause of front axle shaft breaks. This video and the write-up below will show you just how easy it is to install a set of AlloyUSA X-Joints with full circle clips onto one of their chomoly front axle shafts.

Jeep started producing the venerable 4.0 in 1987 as an upgrade to the previous 4.2L inline 6-cylinder design. The basic block dimensions lasted until the demise of the TJ Jeep in 2006… that’s damn near 20 years! These 12 valve gas pots can be described as a thick skinned, reliable workhorse with a fan club that can only be described as “devote”. The fans though, will attest that while the design of the basic short block is rock solid, its ancillary equipment leaves a lackluster sheen. The factory exhaust systems are what bring the 4.0L down a notch, but we’re going to raise it back up.

We bought our first Jeep (a ’46 CJ-2A) from my wife’s father in 1964 and there have been many more since, so we have quite a few decades of experience with Jeeps. When it was time to get our new-to-us Jeep, we decided to go with a first-gen Wrangler because, while it has many of the creature comforts we both desired, it has few of the electronic nannies I can live without. So when I located a fairly basic used Rubicon Unlimited LJ in Manchester, New Hampshire, our youngest son and I flew out to pick it up and drive it back to Arizona. We set the cruise control, turned the radio up, and steered the Jeep between fuel and food stops. That 3,000-mile trip, at those sustained high speeds across most of the United States, proved the reliability of the 10-year-old Wrangler.

When it comes to aftermarket doors for the Wrangler JK platform, the options are seemingly endless. Tube doors, soft doors, plastic, steel, aluminum—you name it, it’s available. Since the Wrangler is one of the only vehicles engineered to have easily removable doors, it stands to reason that there would be lots of aftermarket door options. While we love the freedom and visibility gains of simply going doorless, we often miss the comfort and security of the doors on longer adventures.

When Rugged Ridge asked us to try out their new 4-door JK Bowless top and give our feedback, we were more than happy to give it a try.

Chances are, if you own a Wrangler with a soft top, you’ve found yourself making a few sacrifices for the freedom to roll that top back and take in a little sun. Namely, the ability to load gear on the top of your Jeep.

<![CDATA[ 2014 Jeep Wrangler - A Soft Top System For Jeeps That Can Carry 300 Pounds]]> http://www.omix-ada.com/presscoverage/soft-top-system/ soft-top-system

One of the main reasons Jeep owners (regardless of what model they have) wanted a Jeep was to get outside and explore the backcountry. As such, it only seems natural that a soft top you can be peel back to allow more of that outdoor experience to get inside the cabin would be so popular. Don't get us wrong, there's nothing wrong with a hardtop, but you just can't get that same sun on your face, wind in your hair, getting outside sort of feel stuck under a solid lid on your Jeep.

The Wrangler Rubicon Jeep is offering in standard guise is already a quite potent offroader. Considering its DNA and pedigree, it’s easy to see why. However, as is the case with any other car out there, improvement can be done and we just took note of how many of them thanks to our recent encounter with a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon from Rugged Ridge.

Five dollars, a cheap motel room and a tank of gas. That’s all it cost me for almost two full days of adventurous off-road driving in Southern California with a SEMA show truck. While in L.A. for my first drive in the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata, I padded my trip with an extra day and a half of free time to allow me to explore the wilderness in a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon.

The next part of the Rightline Gear Jeep Build involved replacing a major part of the stock vehicle (as if bumpers don’t already count!). For some reason, replacing the factory hood seemed like another level of aftermarket accessory installation all-together.

The Performance Vented Hood was provided as part of our sponsorship with Rugged Ridge. I had been aware of this product from its debut at the 2014 SEMA Show on the Lady Rugged Ridge Jeep. Pretty sharp!

Tired of bashing in your gas tank while scraping it over the boulders, even with the minimal protection provided by the thin tin OEM skid plate? It’s not only dangerous because of possible leaks, but it also robs you of fuel capacity.

Almost every time the plastic tank deforms, it loses capacity. Sometimes it’ll flex back, other times it won’t. The last thing you want to happen on a trail ride is lose gas. Like I said, it’s not only dangerous but it can also cause other problems long after you’ve driven on.

Tucked away in a nondescript business park in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, sits one of the coolest private Jeep collections in the United States. Owned by Jeep aftermarket parts supplier Omix-ADA, these Jeeps span the full gamut of the brand’s existence from the early military vehicle prototypes to ultra-rare late model examples. Some of these Jeeps, displayed at SEMA in 2014, have previously been covered by Hemmings, but traveling to Omix-ADA’s headquarters provided the perfect opportunity to check out the full collection.

In 2011, BHJF set the Guinness World Record for the Largest Parade of Jeeps in Butler, Pennsylvania, with 1,106 vehicles. This year, 1,846 Jeeps packed the Daytona International Speedway on April 26 and outdid the BHJF record. One point Deep South! After thorough research and hours reading other riveting records, it was discovered Florida is also home to the Guinness World Record holder for the Farthest Distance Skateboarded by a Goat.

It’s refreshing then to see products that not only solve your problem, but make using your vehicle easier and more enjoyable.

“Is it worth buying a Rubicon edition?” We hear that question routinely. Out of the box, it’s hard to beat the Wrangler Rubicon. While the first-edition Rubicon (’03-’06) was jam-packed with off-road features, Jeep took things up a notch with the ’07 model year. In addition to front and rear selectable differential lockers, mud-terrain tires, and a 4:1 transfer case ratio, the JK Rubicon platforms now came standard with an electric push-button sway-bar disconnect and Next Generation Dana 44 axles.

I had a good idea of what I was looking for regarding features, comfort, capability, and reliability. A Jeep Wrangler just seemed to fit the bill. Cue the purchase of an ’11 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon.

Quite a while ago we played around with the idea of putting a TJ soft top on the YJ that later became Big Mini (“Updating Your Soft Top,” November, ’07). Anyone who has owned both vehicles and got caught in the rain knows how much faster and easier a TJ top goes up and down. Not only that, but the TJ top tends to be quieter as well. Trasborg doesn’t have a bender or notcher, so it was either an off-the-shelf pre-formed ’cage kit, or take the Jeep to a shop and get a custom ’cage built.

Adding off-road accessories to your roll cage or steel tube bumper has never been easier. With the new Rugged Ridge X-Clamp there is no need to grind, weld, paint or powder coat to add tabs. All you do is clamp and tighten four allen bolts for a fast, secure mounting base that works on round tube ranging from 1 to 2.5 inches in diameter. Some good uses we’ve found for the X-Clamp include mounting off-road lights, CB antennas, safety whips, even HD cameras.

One of the most enjoyable aspects of the four-wheeling hobby is the challenge of exploring new places. The road trip helps you build confidence in your rig, and having a great weekend off-road simply reaffirms why this hobby is so great. As much as we like hitting the road for a faraway ’wheeling destination, we try to build our rigs for the terrain that we wheel the most. Building for where you actually wheel, versus where you would like to wheel, is often tricky for ’wheeling enthusiasts, and we completely understand why.

Suspensions have come a long way since the introduction of the first buckboard stiff, leaf- sprung flatfender Jeep over 70 years ago. Custom four-link Jeep suspensions have become increasingly popular among skilled fabricators, and for good reason. They provide an incredible amount of torque and axle control, articulation, and wheel travel. Unfortunately, a four-link requires a lot of forethought and knowledge of suspension geometry. Building a four-link that works properly isn’t exactly inexpensive or easy.

The lots benefitting charity are often brand-new cars donated by the manufacturers or automotive organizations, and such was the case with these five hot rides, which rolled off the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale stage after selling for way above MSRP and without any commission going to the auction house.

Dollars to donuts, it doesn’t matter if you got an 1800s-tech carb on your engine or a more- recent fooz-injunction system. However, physics is physics. As you heat stuff up, the molecules expand. It’s true of fat guy’s spare tires and old gym shoes, as well as basically everything else in the world.

We’ve bagged on the 3.8L V-6 in the JK pretty much since the Jeep came out. It got pulled out of a minivan and stuck in the Jeep. It wasn’t a V-8, it wasn’t a diesel, and it wasn’t our beloved 4.0L inline-six. In short, we felt we got gypped and were angry at Jeep for it. We know most of you were too.

For the longest time, if you were to have asked me what I thought about half doors, I would have been the first to say that I don't like them. I mean sure, they look cool and I had even considered buying a Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited with them on in the past but for the most part, I've never really been a fan. They let in too much noise, the window are difficult to use and really, when given the chance, I would just prefer to run doorless.

There are few feelings better than scoring a screaming deal on a used Jeep. We’ve purchased our fair share of lemons, beaters, and diamonds in the rough over the years. More often than not, these pre-owned 4x4s are in need of a little TLC but all easily salvageable. Case and point is our ’98 Grand Cherokee ZJ.

When I first bought my 2007 Jeep Wrangler JK my goals were modest; just a small lift and bigger tires to get me where I wanted to go. I had only recently moved to California and quickly learned that a stock SUV wasn’t keeping up with the places I wanted to explore. I joined a local Jeep group to learn more about adventuring off-road in my new environment and the obsession quickly took hold. I thought I’d gone far during Phase 1 of the build, but since completing Phase 2 (pictured above) I’m beginning to realize just how endless the possibilities are!

When I learned to drive, the personal computer had yet to be invented, the Beatles were still together, and the Jeep was a simple steel box.

Four-and-a-half decades later, the Jeep is still a simple steel box.

Not long ago, I spent a couple of weeks in Georgia driving a Jeep Rubicon. It was an education in both off-road technology and evading the cruel and relentless cycle of automotive fashion: while other vehicles fall out of style, the humble Jeep remains an icon.

As a kid growing up in Massachusetts, I watched a lot of cartoons while snowed-in during winter. Though at the time I didn’t know who Rube Goldberg was, the guys who created the cartoon characters Tom and Jerry surely did. One of my favorite cartoon episodes, Designs on Jerry, follows Tom the cat as he designs and builds an overly complicated Rube Goldbergesque mousetrap to catch Jerry the mouse. Once triggered, the mousetrap meandered and plodded through a series of unnecessarily complex moves all over the room until finally springing the part of the device supposed to catch Jerry. Naturally, it didn’t work. It’s much like the factory Ross cam and lever steering in most ’71-earlier Jeeps.

We are still in love with the simple military look. We also showed you how we added underbelly protection and rock sliders from Synergy Manufacturing with help from our friends at Absolute Offroad here in Phoenix, Arizona. This time we’ll drag the skidplates across some rocks and report back to you on how they did.

It’s sometimes not what ya know, it’s who ya know. Such was the case with my most recent old-Jeep purchase. My buddy’s wife is a realtor. One day she called me out of the blue to say one of her clients 15 miles down the street from me needed to clear out an old long-wheelbase Willys. The only hitch was that I had just bought a non-running 1971 Jeep CJ-6 a week earlier, and it was still sitting on my trailer. Real Jeepers never say die, so after a few more phone calls and some assurance that the Jeep was a runner, I headed to his place with my towbar and a wad of cash.

Rugged Ridge really outdid themselves at the 2013 SEMA Show by bringing out the best collection of old iron I have ever seen. Seriously, they actually had an original 1941 Bantam BRC-40, a 1941 Willys MA and a 1941 Ford GP all on display! These are literally the granddaddy's of the modern Jeep - the source DNA of what we all love. Of course, this is to say nothing about the ultra rare 1943 Ford GPA or "Seep" as well as a couple of other Willys M38's. I do apologize for the lack of photos and for the quality of the ones I got. Unfortunately, the lighting in this area was terrible and I could only grab a few that were still in focus before the crowds came rushing in. Anyway, here ya go...

In a world where every middling lip-synced award show performance is declared to be "iconic," it's fair to say that the word has lost much of its meaning. When it comes to cars, finding an icon amid the glut of focus-group and committee-designed transport pods isn't easy. The alchemy of form, function and emotional connections that converge to make an enduring nameplate is not easily harnessed.

When is stock not enough? For our ’99 Jeep Grand Cherokee, it came at 137,000-plus miles when power began waning, even while using synthetic oil for regular oil changes and an open-element air filter in place of the factory air filter. We could have survived as is, but we needed some seat-of-the-pants, if not documented, performance improvements to keep our WJ maintaining at our desired level.

We make a lot of assumptions about people based on the cars they drive. A driver in a new Mercedes-Benz has money. The person behind the wheel of a new Ford Fiesta may be middle or working class. But there's one auto brand that has managed to attract people across the wealth divide. Car data shows that in new auto sales, Jeep does equally well among people who are making less than ten-thousand dollars a year and those who make over half a million.

<![CDATA[Rust always wins]]> http://www.omix-ada.com/presscoverage/off-road-news/

Easy fix, funny story. There are definite positives and negatives associated with living in a coastal town in the south. For me, my top three dislikes are tourist traffic, hurricanes, and the salt air that eats away at your rig. My ’97 Jeep Wrangler TJ started its life in Pennsylvania, so it was already behind the curve when it came to being rust free. Living next the coast for the remainder of its life hasn’t helped it either. It wasn’t until a few years ago that my Jeep finally received an upgrade and some element protection.

Off-road armor appeared shortly after WWll vets bought Jeeps and began backcountry exploration. The 4x4 exterior accessory aftermarket soon grew from off-road clubs: Jeepers would make a widget for their own rig, then other enthusiasts would see it and want one. Industry forefathers such as Basil Smith and Pete Condos began by making bumpers for their own Jeeps in their tract home garages.
