ProClip Tablet Mount in a 2005 LJ

In an increasingly connected world, some of us find it extremely useful to have a device at our fingertips while driving.  I’ll leave the opinions about whether you should or shouldn’t have access to your mobile device while behind the wheel for someone else to debate.  Responsible device usage while on the trail can be […]

My Jeep Story

About two months ago, a Youtuber by the name of Chris Meacham started this really cool idea.  He told us all his Jeep story, and then called out three more Jeepers to do the same.  Those three told their story, and then called out three more.  And so on.  I got called out on the […]

Identifying a trac-lok with the kids.

I wondered if the rear D44 in my LJ had a trac-lok or not.  Internet lore suggested that it did, but I wanted to be certain.  I had the rear shafts out to replace seals/bearings anyway, so I pulled the cover and replaced the fluid while I was at it.  Perfect time to see if […]

J.T. Brooks Tire Deflators, vs my old generic deflators

Hey folks, we’re just past Christmas, and one of the few SWBCrawler related gifts I received (aside from a really nice set to ratcheting wrenches) was a set of the J.T. Brooks Pro tire deflators. Now, getting the air out of your tires seems easy enough right?  I did it manually for years, and then […]
