So what normally happens when you go out of town? Maybe you come home and you’ve got a new couch in the living room or the kids have grown a little. The family might welcome you home with a hug and a kiss. Well, for one local family, the husband came home to a “rocked” Jeep!
I was contacted by a local customer regarding some upgrades to her husband’s Jeep while he was out of town. We had approximately 3 weeks for the job to be completed and also had to work within the budget she had set aside. The vehicle in question is a 2007 Jeep Wrangler JK two door. After several conversations and estimates were presented she decided to pull the trigger and get the ball rolling on the project. Below are the details:
-Bestop Trektop NX w/ tinted windows
-Mopar upper half doors
-Raptor Bedliner exterior black coating
-2014 Rubicon X wheels/tires
-Rough Country stubby bumper caps
-Metalcloak LED taillights
-Weathertech floor liners
-14″ Black stainless antenna
-new windshield and wipers
It has been a long time coming. We were able to get out for a Tuesday night snow run last week with our ice and snow accumulations. We started on the trail at 5 PM at the main Windrock Park entrance. We took trail 2 to trail 16 and then exited the park via trail 74 to Highway 116. Check out the video here.

“Newer Jeeps don’t have much room under the hood to mount accessories.” I just ate those words a few weeks ago after installing the sPOD with Mountain Off Road’s under hood ARB twin compressor mount. The setup turned out great and we had room to run a remote disconnect on the front bumper. If you have questions about pricing or fitment don’t hesitate to give us a call. And check out this 2013 Rubicon with these components installed:

Scott’s XJ was a clean, rust free canvas to build from. I was surprised at how nice it was, inside and out. He was looking for a very street-able daily driven rig as well as well as weekend camping/wheeling rig. Scott came to Rock Your 4×4 with a host of maintenance items and a list of parts he thought would work well on this project. We talked several weeks before pulling the trigger and ordering the parts to make sure we could stay in his budget and address the concerns and questions he had with the build. We settled on the following:
-Rusty’s 3″ Advanced kit with rear springs and HD front coils
-Rusty’s greasable rear shackles
-Rusty’s rear bar pin eliminators
-Synergy ball joints
-Zone steering stabilizer
-Zone front sway bar links
-new hub bearings
-new pads, rotors, and calipers
-new axle joints
-15×8 Pro Comp steel wheels
-31/10.50r15 M/T Deegan tires
-Magaflow exhaust with custom tailpipe
The new stance is a head turner. We hope to see Scott on the trail soon.
One more place is knocked off of the bucket list. We had a blast at Adventure Off Road Park. We rode trails Friday and Saturday. The event was well planned and there were 140 registered vehicles in attendance. Adventure Off Road Park is only about a year old and there is some great potential there. It was nice to drive there, wheel, and drive home. The map is fairly easy to read and most of the trails were well marked. We hope you enjoy the Trailfest videos. Part 1 is featured HERE. Part 2 of our Trailfest videos is HERE.
The Climrox project just rolled out of the shop after another major upgrade. This latest installment included a custom full float Dana 60 and a high pinion Dana 44, both 5 on 5.5 to retain the same wheels. The WMS to WMS was changed from 61″ to 64″. The new axles were built with some nice upgrades.
Rear axle specs:
-Dana 60 low pinion
-Spyntec Full Float kit with drive flanges and GM disc brakes
-Ruffstuff traction bar, diff cover, and axle mounting hardware
Front axle specs :
-Spyntec wheel end package with drive flanges and GM disc brakes
-Ruffstuff diff cover, axle mounting hardware, and offset tie rod kit
The 12″ travel shocks were positioned for better control and more clearance. The result is a better looking, stronger, and more capable rig. Subscribe for more updates on the Climrox project.
We lucked up and caught this action footage at the Monster Jam in Knoxville last month.
Part 2 of our 3 part series of Dixie Run is now available for viewing. Watching the video reminds me how much fun we had this year. Every wheeler should make the Dixie Run a must-go-to event each year. Its good to see old friends and make new ones as well. Check out the newest video here.
