It’s a myth that most Jeep Wrangler owners add big wheels and tires to match simply because they look cool …well, ok, maybe that’s not really a myth at all. In 99.99 percent of cases, in fact, it’s absolutely true. Sure, many of us put outsized rubber on our rigs for extra capability off-road, but it’s the cool factor that hooks more than a few owners.
Many gearheads focus on outright speed or acceleration when talking about their favorite pickup. After all, the truck horsepower wars are in full swing, with Ram belting out over 700 ponies from the mighty TRX and Ford responding in kind with a GT500-powered Raptor R. And you can bet GM and Toyota won’t let this challenge go unanswered for very long either.
It’s hard to separate the name WARN from vehicle recovery winches, considering WARN winches are universally recognized as being among the absolute best in the business, and the company hasn’t slowed down any since reaching the top. Instead, they continue to pioneer, innovate, and push the envelope when it comes to cutting-edge features and design.
Every new vehicle sold today has headlights made of a polycarbonate plastic that resists the impact of small debris, even in extreme conditions. Whether it’s 100 degrees or 20 below, a rock kicked up by the truck in front of you won’t break the bulb behind these plastic shields.
Having the right tires on your ride is critical, and nowhere is that more apparent than off-road, where every stab of the throttle or squeeze of the brake pedal is a fight for traction. And of the several different types of off-road tire on the market today, mud tires are about as particular and purpose-built as they come.
Overlanding, for those unfamiliar with the term, is a type of self-reliant adventure travel. It involves setting out to remote destinations—a trip in which the journey itself is one’s primary goal. Blending off-road exploration with a healthy dose of comfortable camping, this get-away-from-it-all activity has seen a great deal of growth in this current age of social distancing.
The 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is an incredible machine, thanks to its monumental horsepower and the sort of intoxicating supercharger whine that will peel the paint off the walls. But you know what’s even better than that breathtaking 707 factory horsepower? How about 1,000 horsepower? Now you have the chance to add a tuned, 1,000-horsepower Charger Hellcat to your garage, courtesy of Dream Giveaway.
One of the first things most gearheads do after buying a new rig — besides washing it profusely, of course — is head straight to the internet to find a cache of aftermarket parts. This accomplishes two things: it helps customize the vehicle for whatever harebrained plans we happen to have rolling around in our brains, and it helps separate our machine from all the others. After all, shouldn’t your truck look just a little bit different than the one your neighbor brought home last month?
No matter how good your car, someday it will happen: your air conditioning system will make the dreaded switch from blowing cold air on that hot day in traffic to air that’s just cool. Then, slowly — maybe even over the course of a few days — it’ll become warmer and warmer until there’s no cooling at all.
