I had a Prius for a number of years when I had to deal with a commute (great car by the way, I'd buy another one in a nanosecond if I had to deal with commuting again) and referred to it as a...

I get positive comments on the color frequently (maybe not daily) as well. I parked mine next to a red JKU in a parking lot just the other day, it was not RL, was a shade or two darker, and a couple...

I had an '00 TJ with the 4.0L inline 6, and now have a '13 JKUR. I put almost 100K on the old engine, trouble free, and generally liked it fine. The 3.6 is better, however, lots more power and...

I rotate in the spare, and do a full rotation every 5K miles, when I change the synthetic oil. Think about it in terms of percentages, the tires will, quite literally, last 20% longer by using the...

Looks like an easy buff if the pic is accurate. Steel sliders or side-steps offer some protection, but some doors are quite rounded and can reach past a slider/step, not to mention trucks/SUVs which...

I had a '00 TJ that was my only vehicle for 8 years. I used a small utility trailer when I needed pickup-like capabilities. When I had to haul people, I made do. Not ideal, but I survived. A JKU...

I drove a '00 TJ for 8 years, saw a lot of hood flutter. The '13JKUR is a lot better in wind, and with hood-flutter, but I did get it back around Christmas driving across eastern Montana in a...

A lawyer, for a $7,000 engine, or any other relatively small claim (meaning under about $15K) for that matter? I don't think so. Unless it's an attorney fee case (meaning that there is a contract...
