Where do you put your garage door opener in your jeep?
Are you brave and just toss it on the dash, or clip it on the visor?
I have a soft top and I usually don’t have the back and side windows in the Jeep. This is great to drive around in, but not very secure for anything laying out in the open. I used to put the opener in the center console because that has a lock on it, but that thing is a wide open box that you can lose small children in. After weeks of having to fish around in the center console, I came up with a quick fix to attach it to the underside of the center console lid. Now it locks and I no longer have to dig around to find it.
When you have a really cool Jeep, its hard not to want bling that matches your vehicle. People get jackets with logos, keychains with symbols, stickers and T-Shirts that call attention to brands that we like.
So, I wanted a really cool Jeep key. Not just any stock Jeep key. I wanted a unique Jeep key that few people have. I thought about the Jeep rock key directly from Jeep, but I also wanted the key to match my Rhino-Lined paint job.
My Jeep Valkyrie, has a bright red Rhino-Lining all over it. It looks awesome, period. When I’m not driving it, someone always asks me about it and all I have are pictures. Pictures can’t show texture as well as actually touching something. So, I wanted my Jeep key to be Rhino-Lined too.
So, I had my keys Rhino-Lined with the same color paint as my Jeep.
This weekend we replaced the marbleized Jeep Wrangler dash bezel on the Valkarie Jeep with a Rhino Liner painted version that matches the outside of the Jeep. It’s just one of those little touches that makes the custom Jeep match inside and out.

Its a beautiful day outside and you are ready to go and enjoy your Jeep Wrangler. You jump in, close the door and hit the road. You go to make a lane change and the side view mirror is pointed at the clear blue sky again. “What the heck?,”” you think to yourself, “I’m positive I set the mirror yesterday when I drove. I remember because the I almost drove OVER a car yesterday when I went to make a lane change. I stopped and specifically adjusted it.”
If you have a TJ Jeep Wrangler and you find yourself constantly having to re-adjust your side view mirrors, you are not alone. Your Jeep is probably a 1997-2002 TJ Wrangler. Chrysler (Jeep’s parent company) eventually realized the ball-socket design didn’t stand the test of time and eventually changed the side-view mirror design in 2003, eliminating the problem of regular
I was lucky enough to get to upgrade one of our Jeeps to some Nitto Mud Grappler. I can honestly say these tire are great. They drive awesome on the street and do even better in the mud (hence the name I guess.) At 35mph the howl of tires begins to sound like a WWII bomber and you can’t help but smile as you feel like a kid taking his first ride on a two-stroke four-wheeler.
Nitto Grapplers & Off Road-ability
Then enter the off-road world. The Nitto Mud Grapplers easily gripped and carried us over obstacles that hung us up in previous wheeling adventures. We were able to pull through mud in 2 wheel drive that other 4×4 vehicles struggled with in four wheel drive. These tire are expensive, but this is one of those “you get what you pay for”
We are finally at the finish line for “White Rhino”. The project was an incredible success and is one of the best driving jeeps that we have ever produced. The long arm lift made a huge difference in how it performs and between the aftermarket air intake and exhaust, matched with the right gearing, this jeep is fast as well. We are really proud of this jeep and actually hate to see it sold. The crew here kept fighting over who gets to drive it next.

Let’s face it, the bigger the tire, the more expensive it will be. It gets even worse when you go for M/T offroad tires. I bought my Jeep with BFG KM2′s 315/75/16 on them. These are really expensive to replace. So how can I keep my big tires and still afford gas money to get me to the offroad events? Simple…retreads.
A retread, also known as a “recap,” or a “remould” is a worn tire that has gone through a remanufacturing process to extend its useful service life. Retreads are usually a lot cheaper than a new brand name tire.
Treadwright currently has 315/75/16 tires with highly aggressive tread for $150-$170. These same tires are $309-$330 elsewhere. The best I could come up with was TireRack, but even then, it was $206 for a 35×12.5×16 tire. It’s the same height tire as a 315/75/16, so its at least in the
