ExtremeTerrain’s Clean Trails Program

JL Hill Descent Control Tested

PAOLI, Pa. (May 29, 2019) – ExtremeTerrain, the auto parts retailer known for customizing Jeep Wranglers and Toyota pick-ups, continues to give back through the Clean Trail Initiative program in 2019. Launched in 2015, the program seeks to reward local clubs and organizations with small, project-specific, grants to be used for trail maintenance and restoration. In the approximately 4 years since it started, the program has given out $21,650 in trail project grant funds.

The community of off-roading and 4×4 enthusiasts sometimes get a bad rap for their treatment of trails. There is a negative impression that many members of the off-roading community work hard to combat. There are dozens of non-profit organizations filled with conscientious 4×4 owners around the U.S. that organize excellent programs to clean and maintain the trails they use, while also educating the community of fellow 4-wheelers about the proper rules and regulations that govern lawful use of public and private lands.

ExtremeTerrain’s Clean Trail Initiative program was designed with these very organizations in mind. The clubs and groups that are out in the woods, are the front-line ambassadors for the good name of law-abiding, conscientious members of the Jeep and 4×4 community. Therefore, any little bit of support that the e-comm parts company can supply to these great folks is helping to bridge the divide between non-motorized outdoor recreational enthusiasts and the OHV community.

As 2019 ramps up into the spring and summer season, the need to support trail clean-ups and stewardship increases. Therefore, ExtremeTerrain is rededicating itself to the program. Application for 2019 trail grants are being accepted right now! It is very easy to submit a grant request.

Leaders of trail projects can visit the page https://www.extremeterrain.com/clean-trail-initiative-program.html, and sign-up through the easy online application. Members of the ExtremeTerrain team will notify grant winners within just a few days and get a package of trail cleaning supplies shipped out soon thereafter.

Can Ryan’s Stock JL Keep Up With his Modded TJ Offroad?

Comments Off on Can Ryan’s Stock JL Keep Up With his Modded TJ Offroad?

Stock JL vs Modded TJ

PAOLI, Pa. (February 6th, 2019) – In the latest edition of ExtremeTerrain’s (XT) “Throttle Out” YouTube Series, XT host Ryan Huck visits Rausch Creek Off-Road Park in Pine Grove, PA with his new, stock, 2.0L-powered 2018 JL Wrangler 2-door and his trusty, heavily-modified, 1998 TJ Wrangler to give them a proper shake down while comparing how each performs on the trail.

Ryan has had his TJ since he earned his license over 16 years ago and it was his daily driver until recently, when he purchased his new JL. His TJ has been through several iterations of lift kits and is functionally modified with all the supporting components needed to handle even the toughest of trails. On the other hand, his new JL Wrangler is bone-stock, for the time being, but is equipped with more technology and modern architecture, making for an interesting comparison to his old TJ on the trail. Which one would you choose to take out on your local trail?

JL Hill Descent Control Tested

PAOLI, Pa. (Jan 15th, 2019) – In this episode of ExtremeTerrain’s Throttle Out YouTube Series, Ryan Huck takes a 2018 JLU to Rausch Creek Off-Road Park in Pine Grove, PA to test the JL Hill Descent Control (HDC). This new feature, available in the JL Wrangler, is only intended for low speed off-road driving. When HDC is activated in 4-low, it automatically applies the brakes while descending hills at speeds below 30 MPH.While using this feature, the driver has control over the exact speed the vehicle will descend — even over bumps, stair steps, and jagged rocks.In addition to his explanation, Ryan walks through, step-by-step, how to activate HDC as well as demonstrating the feature’s capabilities in real-life situations on the trail. Using two different areas of the park for his demonstrations, Ryan tests how well the HDC can handle a variety of trails and surfaces.

JL Turbo vs V6 Off-road Comparison

JL Turbo vs V6 Off-road Comparison

PAOLI, Pa. (DEC 27th, 2018) – ExtremeTerrain’s (XT) Ryan Huck orchestrated a camera crew and two bone-stock JL Wranglers during a trip to Rausch Creek Off-road park to create this Throttle Out episode comparing the new 2.0L Turbo 4-cylinder Wrangler against a 3.6L V6 JL. The purpose of their mission was to take both JL’s on the trail to see if one engine performed better than the other off-road. In this video, Ryan demonstrates the off-road prowess of both configurations, while hitting a few different types of obstacles to show how each performs at different RPM’s. As a seasoned, technical wheeler, Ryan fights off his natural instincts, putting the throttle down on both JL’s, to provide evidence for his comparison. Even with the difference in power output and power band, both configurations were more than capable of handling the snow-covered trail and were evenly matched in their native off-road environments.

PAOLI, Pa. (December 19th, 2018) – ExtremeTerrain’s Ryan Huck has produced the video, “How Jeep Suspension Works | Jeep Suspension Geometry Explained”, as an informational tool for the 4×4 community focusing on modified Wranglers.

What is Death Wobble

PAOLI, Pa. (December 11th, 2018) – ExtremeTerrain’s Ryan Huck created a demonstration to show the effects of death wobble on JK Wrangler with a 3.5” Rock Krawler Lift Kit and 35” tires.

From bushings to trackbars, Ryan runs through all the scenarios where death wobble can occur on a Wrangler, so you can stay safe on and off the road!

ExtremeTerrain GiveawayExtremeTerrain is excited to give away two brand new 2018 JL Wranglers that have been modified from bumper to bumper in typical XT fashion. One lucky winner will be given the keys to two JL Wranglers, one 4-door model and one 2-door model, that can be shared with a friend, a significant other, or both can be held onto by the winning party.

For months, excitement has been steadily building around the all-new and redesigned 2018 JL Wrangler as more and more details and images have made their way into the press. The latest iteration of the iconic off-roader that can trace its roots back to WWII, the new JL Wrangler is breathing new life into the model line by taking a different approach to the winning recipe. Additional engine options will be offered, including a 3.0L Diesel and 4-Cylinder Turbo, joining the 3.6L Pentastar V6. The aluminum construction of the JL will reduce weight and improve fuel economy, making it even more off-road capable.

With the Toledo, OH Jeep plant retooling the line for JL production and order banks opening up shortly, the winner of this giveaway will have two of the first 2018 Wranglers to roll off of the assembly line, with both already completely outfitted with a range of modifications. The one JL in the giveaway is going to be a Rubicon Unlimited (4 doors), using the faithful 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine. Sitting on 35 Mickey Thompson Tires and a 2.5 Lift, this JLU will be outfitted with a mix of Deegan38 parts including bumpers, fenders, a grille and much more.

Matching the ride height and tire setup of the Deegan 38 JLU, this Barricade JL will be outfitted with a mix of exclusive parts that includes armor, bumpers, fenders, a winch and much more.
