JEEP WRANGLER JK - 2007 To The Present by Don Alexander and Quinn Thomas is the guide you need if you do not have a great mechanic around who knows everything about this modern age of Jeep Wrangler. I knew Jeeps were always popular with the outdoor type, but I didn't realize just what that entailed. Here, Don Alexander has went from his love of speed and racing to the just as arduous role of off road rock driving. Don is not only a great racing driver but a teacher of drivers aa well as author of many books and articles about racing, driving and all things associated with speed. Don's go-to man for all things Jeep is Quinn Thomas. He and his wife Heather own, operate and deeply enjoy their shop, All J Products out in Big Bear Lake, California. Quinn is a self confessed gear-head and off roader from way back. Together they have put together a hell of a great book about their favorite subject. It is nice to know that the authors know what they are writing about, so lets get to the heart of the matter. The Jeep. Specifically the Wrangler JK that came out in 2007 and is still being produced. Let's face it, if you bought one of these vehicles showroom new and only got the stock package, you cheated yourself. Not that buying stock is bad, but for a Jeep you'd want to get her set up to take on anything off road could throw at you. And here is a great listing of what products are out there, how they work and how well they work, along with so much more that you probably didn't think about or just plain forgot about. The book is broken down into sections for the various parts of the Jeep. Wheels and tires, suspension, lifts and steering assemblies, as well as brakes, axles and all things electrical. These are the basics needed to take your Jeep to the next level and the authors have detailed various products available. They do not cover all materials you could look at when, for example, you are thinking about increasing your breaking power. This Jeep, after all, is the most modified vehicle ever and the list of manufacturers and parts would stagger you. But they offer suggestions. Then there are the frills, upgrading the pieces and parts of your engine, adding extras like tire deflators/inflators, kit boxes, additional fuel storage, and the list goes on and on. At only 144 large pages they can't give you everything you need, but they do try. Plus there is an added source guide at the back of the book if you need to explore further. So when you are planning your build, or just the next modification, here is a trail map to help you. And the book is jammed with color photos to guide you on you trek into the wild. Enjoy! I won this book through LibraryThing.

About This Item

We aim to show you accurate product information. Manufacturers, suppliers and others provide what you see here, and we have not verified it.

Transform your Jeep Wrangler JK into a superior off-road performer with this comprehensive guide to select the best parts and make modifications.

A full complement of heavy-duty suspension, chassis, steering, drivetrain, and high-performance engine parts has been developed for this platform. Jeep Wrangler JK 2007-Present: Performance Upgrades co-authors Don Alexander and Quinn Thomas offer guidance for making those modifications. Lift kits from 1.75 to 5 inches are available, so you can fit off-road wheels and tires for exceptional traction. Suspension springs, specially calibrated coilover shocks, and sway bars must work in concert to provide the correct suspension articulation and ride quality to scale obstacles and negotiate terrain. To increase durability and essential reliability, pitman arms, drop links, driveline parts, steering boxes, and skid plates are examined. Because the drivetrain must be ready for off-road service, the authors cover the most rugged and reliable axle assemblies available. Exhaust, intake, and electronic engine mapping upgrades make the Jeep 3.6- and 3.8-liter V-6 engines much more potent. This book also includes how to swap GM LS and new Hemi engines into the JK for vastly improved performance.

Since its release in 2007, the JK has become wildly popular and nearly 1 million units have been sold in North America. With a wider track and longer wheelbase, the Wrangler JK is roomier, more comfortable, and delivers better on-road performance than its predecessor. However, it needs serious chassis, suspension, and drivetrain upgrades to tackle demanding off-road terrain and rock crawling.

If you believe that paved roads are simply access-ways to the open range, you and your JK need this book. It contains the vital information to convert any mild-mannered street vehicle into an all-conquering off-road rig. Whether it's lift kits, wheels, tires, drivetrain, or suspension and engine parts, this volume provides detailed information, insightful guidance, and installation instructions so you can build an off-road JK to handle the toughest terrain.

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers. ** Jeep Wrangler JK 2007 - Present: Performance Upgrades is another great addition by CarTech. Well detailed information, concise explanations, great instructions. There are, as usual, loads of useful photographs for guidance. Grab one to add to your collection, before you dive in! You'll be glad it's on hand.

As a jeep owner, I couldn't be happier. This is a great book for Jeep owners who want to mod their Jeep and even for those who don't because it has a lot of great information about the Jeep before mods. And as usual, you have to admire the great Car Tech photos. I recommend this book.
