Spreading the Love, Jeep Wrangler Style!

Jeep related date ideas

Celebrate Valentine’s Day today or this weekend with these lovely ideas for your special someone who is also a Jeep fanatic. Check out these four Jeep-related date and gift ideas and feel free to share any you may have with us as well on Facebook.

Camping

If your darling loves their Jeep and loves camping, you should definitely get them the tools and materials they need to turn their Jeep into a bed or a tent. There are definitely a lot of ready-to-purchase tents that are built specifically for Jeeps and prices range from $200 to over $1,200.

But if that is out of your price range, you can buy them the things to make a DIY bed in their Jeep, and that is an exceptionally cool idea if they have the panoramic sunroof or a Wrangler. All you need to buy are some blankets, pillows and fold the seats down to createa flat space. You can go out any night of the week and enjoy the night sky without getting all of the camping gear.

Jeep Tours

There are two local Jeep tours we recommend checking out for a date! Whether you want to see the Everglades like you never have before or tour Miami in a different light, there is a South Florida Jeep tour for you. [click to continue…]

Do you know the difference between ground clearance and the different off-roading related angles? If not, pay attention!

Running Ground Clearance

Running ground clearance is usually just referred to simply as “ground clearance”. Whatever you call it, it is important to pay attention to it. Ground clearance is the measurement of the space between the lowest point of your vehicle and the ground. This information is particularly useful for those that plan on driving through uneven terrains because it is easy to drive over something too high and have it scrape the bottom of your vehicle.
