NC4x4

This will be the FIFTH annual 12 Days of NC4x4 giveaway! As always, we appreciate our members and vendors and want to give something back for your support and for making the board the great place that it is.

This is the entry thread for the 12 Days of NC4x4.

Starting on Saturday, December 13, at approximately 9pm, and continuing each day until Christmas Eve, we'll pick one entry from this thread as the day's winner. We'll announce the winner and the prize in a separate thread.

We're not going to do it quite like the song, but each day's prize will be bigger and better than what came before.

I'd like to remind everyone that our supporting Vendors are instrumental in pulling this off. If you're shopping for 4x4-related gifts or making your wish list, be sure to consider shopping with our amazing vendors! Click here to register!...

Each year as the outside temps drop, 2 things happen. People complain about crappy fuel mileage and million of perfectly good thermostats are tossed in the trash can of the shop. Together we can end this mindless abuse of thermostats. It seems whenever a lack of heat issue is posted that someone also throws out the proverbial "replace the thermostat" reply. Not so fast Einstein.

Before condemning the thermostat, let's actually diagnose the issue. The following is how I successfully diagnosed a lack of proper heat on my wife's 1998 Jeep ZJ. Read More >>...

aimg.nc4x4.net_wp_2013_02_DSC_5618_300x199.jpg Dave Whitley built bumpers, sliders, EXO cages, and would do solid axle swaps in his (at home) fabrication shop, for years. He used Oliver's for drive shafts, so when the business came up for sale it seemed like a no-brainer to buy it. That’s the WAY short version of the story, but on September 1, 2009, he took on custom drive shafts, car parts, and accessories. Dave has a lot on this plate, including a new shop, so we're glad he took a few minutes to tell us how he got into four wheeling, both for fun and for his day job. Read More >>>...
