  • AMP Research Power Steps

    Do you need steps for your Jeep Wrangler JK or JK Unlimited that won't interfere with your ground clearance? If so, you'll love AMP Research Power Steps. Traditional side rails or tube steps may hang too low and catch rocks and other obstacles on the trail. But AMP Research steps fold out when you need them, and fold up and away when you don't.

    amp-research-7512201a-jeep-wrangler-jk-powerstep-running-boards-jk-unlimited-steps-outEven stock Jeep JK's feature a higher stance than a typical passenger car. You have no choice but to step up on entry and step down on exit. This product gives you that extra wide step to make entry and exit more comfortable, especially for those who are not accustomed to a truck or SUV. These steps are great for those needing that extra foothold to enter or exit the vehicle, such as young children. 

    Amp-Research-Power-Step AMP Research Side Steps Are Fully Retractable

    The ability to fully retract these side steps makes them perfect for the family-oriented Wrangler JKU, where adding a vehicle lift could otherwise be impractical with small children or pets. Many owners also find that family members accustomed to passenger cars dislike high entry and exit points. These steps will mitigate that problem. Upon opening the door, the AMP Research step folds out (pictured above). The wide step provides a sturdy foothold. Once the door is shut, the AMP Research step retracts (pictured below).

     

    amp-research-7512101a-jeep-wrangler-jk-powerstep-running-boards-jk-2-door

    As you can see above, when the steps are fully retracted they fold neatly up to the pinch seam. These steps don't remain fixed, like a traditional tube step. This prevents it from snagging rocks or other obstacles on the trail. If you're looking for rocker protection, the AMP side steps can also hold up to moderate abuse off-road. This provides you with some protection for the pinch seam. However, we would not recommend this product for the dedicated off-road 'rig.' The step just won't hold up to repeated abuse while rock crawling.

    If you're looking for a top quality automatic step for your Wrangler JK or JKU, we recommend AMP research. We install these often here at the shop, and the customer is always happy. If you would like to order a set for your build, you can purchase HERE. Or give us a call at 828-675-8789.

  • Wrangler JK - Grab Handles

    Are you tired of busting your gut entering and exiting your lifted Jeep? Let's face it, the roll-bar and steering wheel provide awkward support at best. That's why grab handles are a popular aftermarket accessory. They simply make getting in and out of your ride a breeze.

  • Wrangler JK Interior - BedRug Liners

    BedRug Liners Reign In Form and Function

    BedRug liners are some of the best aftermarket floor liner replacements for the Wrangler JK. In terms of durability and ease of maintenance, BedRug reigns superior. BedRug's original BedRug Premium Carpet floor kit is offered for both the Jeep Wrangler JK and JK Unlimited. This kit gives you the look and feel of a premium carpeted interior -- without all the downsides of OEM carpet! For example, BedRug Carpet is resistant to mold and mildew. As any Jeep Wrangler owner knows, water and moisture soaking into OEM carpet can result in a dirty, moldy mess. This is true even with hard-top models.

    The Benefits of BedRug Liners

    BedRug-Liners-Premium-Carpeted-Front-Floor-Kit-Driver

    On older CJ's and early generation Wranglers, the answer to this problem is the removal of the factory carpet set and addition of a spray or roll on bedliner product. However, some owners may not like the roughness of bedliner. Some may have reservations about scuffing up the inside of a brand new $45,000 vehicle during preparation and install. Also, depending on the prep work, the bedliner may not adhere correctly to the tub. The Jeep usually needs to sit for several days for the bedliner to cure properly. Add in the fact that the entire interior needs to be removed, the dash taped off and the metal sanded down. All in all, you're looking at a sizable project.

    BedRug Liners-Premium-Carpeted-Front-Floor-Kit-Rear-Seat

    The benefits of BedRug are that the seats do not have to be removed, so install is a snap. The material, featuring a ¼ inch polypropylene foam layer and heat shields, dries quickly after getting wet. This is very useful for those unexpected rain showers when driving with the top down, or for when you want to wash the BedRug. This product is 100% waterproof and is custom molded to fit the interior on your Jeep. BedRug is also available for the Jeep CJ-7, YJ, and TJ, in addition to the latest generation Jeep JK and JK Unlimited (shown here).

    BedTred Liners Are Removable 

    BedRug BedTred LinersIf the carpet set isn't for you, or if you still want that rough and tough bedliner feel, check out BedTred, also by BedRug. This product gives you the spray-in bedliner look, without all of the hassle. BedTred is also custom molded to fit your interior, is easy to install and remove, and is 100% waterproof. BedTred will never stain or mold, and is resistant to harsh chemicals. This means you can remove BedRug after a day on the trails and hose it down, no worries! Featuring ¼ inch thick polypropylene foam and heat shields, BedTred is made to last, and also dampens road noise!BedRug Liners

    BedRug Liners Give You Affordable Flexibility

    So whether you like the look and feel of a premium carpet set or the toughness of the classic bedliner style, BedRug gives you affordable flexiblity. Offered in front, rear, or complete sets, both BedTred and BedRug kits can be ordered for the classic body style CJ-7, YJ, and TJ, and the new Jeep Wrangler JK and JK Unlimited.

  • Dirty Dog 4x4 - Cargo Netting

    Dirty-Dog-4x4-Netting-5pc-Kit-Jeep-Wrangler-JKUFor the average Jeep owner, taking the top off is one of the first things that comes to mind. However, if there are pets or small children as passengers, or if you've got cargo in the back of your Wrangler, the open nature of a topless Jeep is risky. But you can easily reduce the risk by throwing on a cargo net by Dirty Dog 4x4! These cargo nets come in a variety of colors, and are available for the Jeep Wrangler JK, JK Unlimited, TJ, and YJ.

    Benefits of a Cargo Net

    DirtyDog-4x4-Netting-3pc-Kit-JKU-Gray-Jeep-WranglerA cargo net allows for the complete open-air Jeep experience while providing safety in the form of heavyweight polypropylene straps, re-enforced stitching, and black anodized grommets. The Dirty Dog 4x4 netting can be left in place with the hard or soft top on. These cargo nets are quick and easy to install, without the need of any additional brackets or mounting equipment.

    Dirty Dog Patterns and Colors

    The side-window netting can be ordered in either the "spider" or regular patterns. The overhead and rear window netting is the standard, squared off pattern. Also, the overhead, side, or rear window nets can be removed while leaving the others in place.

So you don't have to buy a whole kit to get just the front cargo net. These cargo nets add solid protection and functionality to your Jeep with the top down. And they also prevent cargo from scratching or pressing against your soft-top side windows. Dirty-Dog-4x4-Cargo-Pet-Divider-Black-Jeep-Wrangler-JK

  • Wrangler JK - Performance Options

    When upgrading your Jeep, check out these performance options. Engine upgrades, exhaust kits, air intakes and more are just as important as flashy LED light bars or high-dollar lift kits. Don't let the performance of your vehicle suffer. With lift kits and larger tires comes decreased vehicle performance. Your JK will accelerate slower and have a lower top speed with inappropriate gearing and inaccurate shift points, for example. Fix these problems with the following performance options, perfect for bringing that pep back from your Wrangler's OEM days!

    Performance Options To Get You Back on Track

    From the factory, your Wrangler JK seemed to have it all. Great acceleration and top speed for an SUV, decent fuel economy, merging and passing power on the highway, and more. Fast forward six months and you've added a lift kit, 37's, armor, a winch, and loads of accessories. The OEM pep and power from the V6 3.6L just doesn't seem like it used to. Furthermore, the transmission seems to shift at odd times, and the RPMs feel like they're a tad too much for highway travel. The performance of your vehicle has fallen. With just about any vehicle, if you change enough of an OEM equation, you'll feel it in the performance of your ride. The following is a list of performance upgrades we recommend for the Wrangler JK, to get your build back on track!

    Superchargers: Magnuson or Sprintex?

    For superchargers, we recommend Magnuson and Sprintex. The Magnuson supercharger will give you 80-100 more HP, and is sure to bring back the lost OEM performance on your JK or JKU. A Magnuson supercharger will also net you a 60-70 ft/lb of torque gain. This supercharger is a powerful and reliable option for your Wrangler JK. Starting at $5,695.00, pictured above.

    The Sprintex supercharger, pictured below, is another great option. Starting at $5,495.00, this product includes a tuner for your engine and transmission shift points, and pegs up to 302 WHP and up to 307 ft/lbs of torque. Sprintex is a great company, and we highly recommend these products. If you're trying to restore lost power and don't want to invest in a V8 engine swap, a Magnuson or Sprintex supercharger may be for you.

    Air Intakes

    An aftermarket air intake kit can vastly improve upon the airflow from the OEM setup. Moreover, this upgrade usually gains you around 8 horsepower and 10-12 ft/lbs of torque. Coupled with an engine swap or supercharger, or even on an OEM engine, an aftermarket air intake helps you make the most of your Jeep. The engine will pull air more efficiently through an aftermarket intake. This translates to better fuel economy and power for your Wrangler. Starting around $300.00, we recommend Banks (pictured above), Airaid, AFE, and more!

    Exhaust Kits

    An aftermarket exhaust upgrade is great for the Jeep with an old or rusted exhaust system, or for those looking to squeeze just a little more power from the engine. Choose from several cool and unique exhaust tips. Upgrade your OEM single pipe to the classic "dual exhaust" setup, and more! We recommend Borla, Gibson, AFE, and Banks. Starting at $338.87, an aftermarket exhaust kit will give your Jeep that deep exhaust tone you've always wanted, while helping improve your power and efficiency. Perfect for stock builds to show Jeeps, and more!

    Gear Sets: Yukon or Alloy?

    Gears are a performance upgrade often overlooked by most Jeep owners. An expensive upgrade, gears are the best option, bar an engine swap, for restoring lost power to your Jeep. That being said, gear ratios can look complex to one unfamiliar with Jeeps or vehicles in general. We recommend and carry Yukon and Alloy USA gear sets. These gears go inside the differentials on the Jeep Wrangler JK. Aftermarket differential gears will help your engine pull through the transmission gears more efficiently. Furthermore, a gear ratio change will bring your Jeep back to OEM specs with RPMs on the highway, and more. This translates to not only better fuel economy on the highway, but better power around town!  Stay tuned for our Gear Ratio blog post and tire size/gear chart.

    Programmers To Unlock Your Hidden Potential.

    If we're talking modern vehicles like the Wrangler JK, we need to cover programmers. Gone are the days of simple electronic fuel injection (EFI) or carburetors in Jeeps. Now even a simple gear ratio change may cause the on-board computer to enter "limp mode" or another similar emergency function. While on-board computers are more complicated than ever, don't let that ruin the fun or possibilities with upgrading your Jeep! Aftermarket programmers can help the Jeep adjust to gear ratio changes, set shift points, correct the speedometer gauge, and more! We recommend AEV and Superchips. Starting at $170.00, aftermarket programmers can unlock your Jeep's hidden potential at the push of a button!

    Which Performance Upgrade Is Right For You?

    While there are more upgrade options than ever for your Wrangler JK, we believe that these are the cream of the crop. We have installed or worked with each of these products in our shop, and readily recommend them for your build. If you're still unsure which performance upgrade is right for you, give us a call today, we're glad to help you choose the right product for your build. See you on the trail!
