How to Prepare Your Jeep® Wrangler for Summer
Summer is right around the corner, which means that hard tops and door panels will be coming off. Can anything beat the sensation of air rushing over you and turning up your favorite music as you drive? Before you head out on your next adventure with your Jeep® Wrangler, we’ve got a few things to help make it the best possible experience.
DIY Maintenance Check
Not the sexiest topic for any car owner, but spending some time checking your vehicle’s essentials can spare you headaches (and your wallet) once you hit the road. A few key areas to investigate under the hood that even a novice can handle include:
- Brake fluid
- Air filter
- Windshield wiper fluid
- Power steering fluid
Once you’ve got these components in good shape and at the proper levels, take a look at these exterior parts that, while seemingly small, can have big implications later:
- Windshield wiper blades: check for wear and tear; many newer blades come with a handy yellow dot indicator of when they’re ready to be replaced.
- Tire pressure/wear: increase your Jeep® Wrangler’s gas efficiency and avoid unnecessary tread wear by keeping your tires properly inflated for the terrain you’re tackling. Also be on the look-out for tread’s becoming too shallow, which can lead to poor handling and be a general risk to your safety.
Ways to Up Your Jeep® Game
Now that you’ve gotten the basics out of the way, let’s look at two potential improvements that we think can enhance your summer driving experience.
- Weather covers: never get caught off-guard by another summer storm again; gain peace of mind when you’ve left your door and rear panels.
- Double foot rest: say good-bye to fatigue while driving; add some comfort to your next adventure.
