Start with the Montessa, then move on to Rio Puerco. Montessa is very small but it has some mud. Cedro has mud in the valley on the east boundary too.

Cherokee is humongous and I don't want that. I want something smaller, like Renegade.

I'm going to wait until 2018 and see what they cook up to replace my JK. If they drop the 2-door version, then...

Does anyone know if it's possible to take just the hubs with necessary wheel hardware and somehow install them on stock JK without replacing the whole axle?

Make sure you can lift Wrangler's wheels. Frankly they are a bit heavy to me. Just to make it more fun, the sadistic Jeep engineers neglected to include the "spoon" or "nose" on which the spare could...

My 2010 has the same exact problem and the nozzle is not adjustable. It was adjustable on other cars that I had before, usually by a way of a litte ball with a channel. The ball could be turned to...

I paid $1,384 for 4: $739 for the tires at TireRack and $646 to get them installed. The real kicker is the TPMS (of which I had 5). Supposedly they must be replaced, not just batteries swapped out....

I would buy FJ or Xterra. For some reason Tacoma is uncomfortable: its cab is too low. Surprisingly, FJ is much better.

I could also drive an F-150 if that's all we had left.

TrueDelta was a large reason why I bought my JK back in 2010. Back then, FJ had about half of the repair frequency of JK. Or, you could say it was twice as...
