Jeep Wrangler JK Diagnostic Code List | 2007-2018

The purpose to this post is to provide Jeep owners with a means to run DTC without the need for a scan tool. Although this procedure is not as useful or effective as a scan tool, it may help reduce some stress when you find your MIL illuminated while off the grid. This procedure is fairly straight forward and, to my knowledge, will work with all Chrysler products dating back as far as the 1980's -the oldest models require counting the duration and number of flashes produced by the CEL, then cross referencing them to a DTC list.

How to Modify Your Rig For Overland Travel

As the popularity of modifying our vehicles for overland travel grows, so does the market for vehicle modifications. New companies continue to pop up offering yet one more thing that you just can't live without. Although it is incredibly fun, and easy to get carried away, it becomes increasingly difficult to discern that which is needed from that which we want. Most people will not tell you this because they think it’s bad for business, but truth be told, you absolutely do not need a four wheel drive vehicle for overland travel. In fact, your skill-set is far more important than any piece of kit you bring into the backcountry. More knowledge, less kit should be your mantra as you outfit your rig.
