A Brand That Inspires

A Brand That Inspires

If you would have told me a year ago that a car brand would be a life changing motivator, I would have told you that you were crazy. Since immersing myself in the Land Rover brand, I have found it to be so much more than just a vehicle.  Rather a true extension of an adventurous lifestyle.  The History of Land Rover and its dedicated followers really caught my attention. So many seemingly ordinary people taking what started as a farm truck on epic ventures. I read about people like Barbara Toy who took her Series I, Pollyanna, on solo excursions through Africa, the Middle East, across Asia, and even around the world. Later reading an article on Bristol Foster and Robert Bateman being reunited with their long-lost Grizzly Torque, a 1957 ambulance built by Land Rover, that had been lost for decades somewhere in Can ... read more

Mile-Hi Jeep Club is a non-profit organization, 501c(7), that combines the love of off-road with the drive to keep the sport alive. They strive to educate their members on the necessity of proper trail use, the importance of protecting and preserving the beauty of the trails they use and assist in search & rescue and other humanitarian missions around the state on a voluntary basis.

Rover Riders inaugural run 2016 – Mosquito Pass & Half Moon Creek

Rover Riders inaugural run 2016 – Mosquito Pass & Half Moon Creek

I’ve been wanting to put together an off-road trip for quite a while, and it finally came together with a little push from a long time customer. Thanks Dirk! Ok, I’m going to back up a second and explain why the name “Rover Riders” in the title. The Rover Riders were a club and group of Land Rover off-road enthusiasts that was started many years ago. That club was absorbed by the Solihull Society, the other and still current Land Rover club in Colorado, and the name was lost. I thought the name too cool to let go, and while I have no plans to create another (or competing) club, it was perfect to put it to use as a Facebook group This trip is the 1st time I created an event in that group, and invited some friends and customers of the shop. So it came to pass, that on Saturday July 23rd, 2016, our group of 8 vehicles gathered at JC’s British & 4×4 to head out for some high altitude adventure ... read more

Overheating!!! Be careful this summer!

Overheating!!! Be careful this summer!

Did you know that your engine can be overheating with you even knowing it! Yes, that's potentially true – and can have dire consequences. Here's why, for a coolant sensor to be accurate, it must have coolant flowing past it. If you have a coolant leak or complete loss of coolant, your coolant temperature sensor and therefore gauge will not react properly. In the winter there are often some simple signs that your coolant is low, particularly you often will notice that your heater is not blowing hot air. But come summer, that little warning of no heat from your vents goes unnoticed, pair that with running the A/C which pumps even more heat into the engine, and you can have catastrophic engine failure come up faster than you realize. Yes, some vehicle have coolant level sensors to warn you of low coolant level, but they don't always work reliably. And with the abundance of plastic engine (and cooling system) components in use today, some age and time cou ... read more

Undercarriage Protection

Undercarriage Protection

I thought I’d share my beliefs regarding undercarriage vehicle protection. – Body protection and “rock sliders” will be covered in another post. Basically the way I see it undercarriage protection falls into 3 general categories: Skid Plates/Guards – which generally cover an area & multiple components Individual component guards – as the name implies, this guard covers just the “one” component that is vulnerable Component Upgrades – for strength & durability Overall, I prefer to avoid skid plates and guards where I feel they are either excessive or have limited benefit. Therefor I tend to prefer component upgrades and individual component guards whenever possible. Below is a bullet point list of some of my thoughts. Pro’s to skid plates & guards: Relatively easy install Designed for “bolt in” installatio ... read more
