    Ursa Minor Pop-Top Jeep JK

    I think the confusion is that if you have the ursa minor Then you cannot open it with an exo cage on, because they have fixed cross bars that go over the top. So you would be left with finding one that is completly open on top and only has bars around the sides or and forward of the...

    Which Jeep Model & Why?

    Out on the trail anything can happen In my view limp home is better than tow home. I never had an issue withthe sway bars disconnect. I imagine you could just crawl under there and push back to where it is supposed to be. Couldn't be much worse than a manual discconect? I think if you go...

    JKU 37's

    On my 08. Jkur I ran 315 70 17. With no gearing change. Now keep in mind that is the old 3,8 underpowered for sure. However it was bullet proof oh and I had OME 4 inch heavy duty springs to handle that insanely heavy front bumper and winch. No where did I go where I was too short tire...
