Install Cold Air Intake

1. Make sure your car is in park and the engine turned off before you start the installation. The emergency brake should also be engaged and the battery’s negative cable disconnected at the hood.

2. Use the flat-head screwdriver to remove clamps that are found around the hose intake on the engine’s throttle body. The screw driver will help make loose the screws that hold the clamp secure.

3. Use the Torx wrench to remove from the cold air tube, the mass air flow unit. The Philips screwdriver or the flat-head can also be used for this job. The sensor can be damaged when removing the mass air flow unit so caution should be taken.

4. Take the air box apart by unclasping the latches on it. The air box should then be removed completely from the engine bay. After this the stock air filter should be located and removed.

5. At the end of the intake tube connecting to the throttle body, insert a coupling. The other end should then be placed over the body

Road Safety with Sport Vehicles

Most importantly, understand the limitations of your vehicle. SUVs perform much differently than smaller passenger cars, and are typically much larger and heavier. Given their increased size, more work is required from an SUV’s brakes and engine to brake and accelerate, as well as stay under control on the road. By braking quickly, you will put great stress on your brakes, causing them to wear extremely quickly. Over time, worn brakes will dramatically increase the distances required to come to a stop, and failures are a constant threat, introducing the potential for a rear end accident or breakdowns costing thousands of dollars to repair.

In the same way, quickly accelerating will put added stress on your engine, potentially leading breakdowns. Added weight also raises the center of gravity, making it more top heavy through turns. If taken too quickly, a turn can cause an SUV to roll onto its roof. By turning gradually, you will keep your wheels firmly planted on the ground.

The physical boundaries of your vehicle should also be understood, as an SUV may

Use Of Spacers In Wheels

Increase the bolt pattern

When the wheel spacer is fixed to the wheel hub of the car, the bolt pattern which exists presently will be modified. A good wheel adapter can easily change the patterns of bolts from a 4 bolt to a 6 bolt type. When the number of bolt increases that attachment of the wheel onto the spacer becomes firmer. The chances of wheels coming off are minimized. With the inclusion of spacer, you can use custom wheels on your car. With the increase in the number of bolts options, this becomes easier. The offset of the cart also is raised which aids you in better control of the car.

Get the right fit

With the independence of buying a tire after spacers are fitted, you can enhance the looks of your car with custom tire fitting. Purchase of the wheel spacer should be made with care. The wrong spacer can spell risk factors increase for you. Consult a person who has the technical knowledge of spacer and can guide you for purchasing the right product

Storing Gear

The most basic storage on a ute is on the back of a metal tray. Many of these have sides, but a lot of them don’t. Either way, anything in the back of a ute must be tied down and secured unless you have a canopy fitted. This can be a real inconvenience, as it takes quite a lot of time to tie everything down. The other issue is the weather that can get into a utes storage space. If you don’t have a canopy, expect everything on the tray to get wet, and damaged by the sun.

On the other hand, you have less restrictions for space; if you want to take a motorbike or other large item on the back of the ute you don’t have to worry about height restrictions. This is why a lot of people don’t bother about fitting a canopy. There are a number of canopies available; fibreglass, steel, canvas and aluminum. Some are removable, and some are permanently bolted down. If you have the ute covered over, it becomes easier to set up the inside of the ute permanently.

Drawers are a common addition to utes, to ensure that

Tricks Use Maxtrax

If you are stuck in sand, simply remove them from their storage location (a lot of people mount them on roof racks with the supplied mounts), dig some of the sand out of the way and put them as far under the wheels as possible. Maxtrax have the ability to be used as a shovel, making life very easy. Once you have a pair (make sure they are used on the same axle or you will get crossed up) under the wheels, gently accelerate until the vehicle grabs the Maxtrax and goes forward. These can be used in forward or reverse motions, and if you have a second set can be used together (1 on each wheel).

There are a number of alternatives to Maxtrax, but you get what you pay for. In mud, Maxtrax also works exceptionally well. Simply move a bit of the mud out of the way (or just jam them under the tyres) and you are set to go. The advantage of storing these on top of your vehicles is that when they are dirty, you don’t have to put them in your car!

Maxtrax come in a number of colours, and

Repaint Jeep Wheels

The first thing is removing the Jeep wheels in pairs. Untie the lug nuts on the front wheels and lift the jeep with a car lift. Ensure the jack is securely standing on the vehicle. Lower the Jeep lifts until an equal weight is distributed between the lift and jack stands.

Use the 400-grit sandpaper to sand the Wheels, rub as if you are washing the Jeep. Ensure you keep the sandpaper wet the entire time. Use water from a bucket or running water hose pipe. The water is usually used to keep build-up of the old paint from scratching into the surface of the wheel. Sand the surface until the wheel feels smooth to the hand. Remove any rough spots and any scratches or surface rust.

After removing the dirt apply degreaser. Once applied, wash the Jeep wheel off with water. Allow the wheel ample time to dry completely. Apply masking tape on the tires sidewall and also around the tire’s valve stem this is to limit the overspray from the paint. Ensure that no parts of the wheel are masked. Use the adhesive promoter and spray the primer in light thin coats so that

Having a 4WD

Most awnings on the side of the vehicle are 2.5 metres x 2 metres, or 2 metres by 2 metres. The longer side is usually the one running length ways along your vehicle, so make sure you measure to see which is going to sit the best. These things are great, and incredibly cheap. In fact, you can get a good quality one for under $300, and fit it in around an hour.

4WD Awnings are designed to be set up by one person, and very quickly. The procedure normally involves unzipping the case, un-clipping the supports, rolling the awning out and standing the legs up. The legs are incorporated inside the aluminium frame that the awning rolls out of. Stand them up, attach the supports and if it is windy, put a few pegs in the ground with guy ropes going to the awning. I usually suggest that pegging it down is a good idea, as a gust of wind will pick the whole thing up, and dump it on your vehicle. This often results in panel damage!

4WD Awnings are completely weather proof; I have had a puddle of water build up on our

Things Before Buying An SUV

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The compact SUVs have a single rear seat and offer seating capacity of at least five adults. Mid-size SUVs usually have a single rear seat, but the larger ones can have an extra rear seat. As a result, the larger ones can offer seating capacity of at least eight adults. The full-size SUVs have two rear seats and offer seating capacity of at least eight adults.

You can fold and remove the rear seats to make room for more cargo. The compact ones have maximum capacity of 70 cubic feet. The mid-size ones have maximum capacity of 100 cubic feet. The full-size ones have capacity of more than 100 cubic feet.

Luxury and Safety

Regardless of the group, SUVs have similar features when it comes to convenience and luxury. Some of the most popular features are special storage bins, rear-seat entertainment systems, keyless start systems and Bluetooth capability, navigation systems, iPod interfaces, heated seats, and automatic climate control.

SUV manufacturers make sure that there is no compromise with passenger safety. Apart from the strong and sturdy frames, SUVs also come with features like stability control, side curtain airbags, front-seat

SUV Safety Changed

From Small Truck To Big Car

One of the biggest changes manufacturers made is hard to notice at first glance. Originally built on traditional truck frames, most SUVs now ride on a form of adapted car chassis, lowering the centre of gravity, improving handling and stability and even reducing the weight. This one, albeit fairly substantial, change has proven to nearly eliminate rollovers, the most dangerous problem once faced by SUV drivers.

SUVs: Smarter Than Ever

The other major contributor to the modern SUV’s enhanced stability is the advent of advanced, computer-based electrical systems intended to detect and react to potential rollover situations. Many manufacturers have implemented specific anti-rollover technology that can sense when the vehicle is listing too much to one side and adjust break pressure and engine speed to avoid an accident.

More Interior Space Means More Airbags

While multiple airbag systems have become a common feature on many vehicles, the sheer amount of open space inside an SUV makes extended airbag coverage all the more vital. Airbags aren’t just found in the steering wheel and dashboard anymore, full-length side curtain, seat mounted side impact and even drivers side knee airbags
