The JK gets laid to rest
If you’re shopping for a new Jeep Wrangler right now, things might be more than a little confusing. That’s because there are two completely different 2018 models on sale. As it ramps up production of the recently-introduced next-generation Wrangler on a new production line, right around the corner Jeep is still building the outgoing model, which is going on 11 years old. But it will be putting the old war horse out to pasture soon, according to a recent press release.
General Patton’s Jeep Driver Passes Away
Francis “Jeep” Sanza, a beer truck driver and milkman who got his work experience driving for General George S. Patton during World War II, died Tuesday at his Victorian home in downtown Napa California. He was 99 years old. Sanza died in his sleep, said his son Nick Sanza. A framed picture of his former boss General Patton was hanging in the dining room until his last day. From the preparations for D-Day, in May 1944, right up through the landing at Normandy, the Battle of the Bulge and the final push into Germany, Sanza was at the wheel of an open air Willys-Overland with the four-star general in the passenger seat.

How Much Lift Do You Need?
This is such a difficult question to answer. It really depends on what you’re plans are for your Jeep. You can elect to lift just because you want to, or lift so you can gain clearance between your axle differential housing and the ground. Approving your ability to clear objects off road, and in some cases on road! Every modification on your Jeep will cause you to make other modifications, eventually.
