Brian’s Jeep has been through some very challenging tracks and some very harsh terrain and managed so well even with its open differentials.

The JK Wrangler has a secret weapon “traction control” which still works in the background when switched off or in low-range and it actually acts like a half diff locker, it’s a bit hard to explain.

Brian walks us through his Wrangler from bottom to top showing us everything including his DIY mods to the rear.

We also talk about the weak points on the Jeep Wrangler JKU and the priority mods to do before other improvements.

  2. Murchison Off-Road Adventure W.A.
  3. Yeagerup & Callcup W.A.

Unstoppable moment in the Jeep Wrangler:

Every time we go off-road, the Jeep has always made it home again.

 

Most scary situation in the Wrangler:

Going down a steep muddy track, with no control over the Jeep near Harvey Dam.



Brian's modification tips:

Make sure you can do a self-recovery, get a steel bar on the front with a winch and get recovery point’s front and rear as a minimum.



Top 3 tips with Jeep Wrangler JK :

1.      The 3.8L engine get a better response with an accelerator Chip.

2.       If doing a lot of off-road or sand driving install an extra cooler for the auto transmission.

3.       Before you go off-road give your car a good spray with Inox under the bonnet and on all your bar work, it will be a lot easier to clean when you get home.
