Welcome to JKOwners.com

Like the title says, welcome to JKOwners.com. The site is small, but I promise you it will someday soon be the largest JK resource on the Internet.

Who are we? Well my name is Lance Clifford, and I am the President of Pirate4x4.com. Pirate4x4 is the largest off road oriented website in the world with one million visitors and fifteen million page views per month. While Pirate4x4 is a little too rough around the edges for a JK Forum, we felt there was a need for a real JK community where people are able to say what they want and share ideas with others and vendors freely.

We have quite a bit of background in this industry, and we plan on letting you readers reap those benefits. We will be doing LOTS of product giveaways here, just for being a member of JKOwners. We will be providing great tech, trail meet and greets, and for those of you who are newbies, we will be conducting some wheelin 101 classes by yours truly (I'm the 2007 and 2008 WEROCK Unlimited National Rock Crawling Champion, and 2006 and 2007 Baja 1000 Jeepspeed class winner.)

So enjoy the ride, and if you have any feedback or ideas, please feel free to drop me a PM or email. Thanks again for being part of something new, and hopefully something fun!

Yes, they are already available. However they don't carry over from one site to the other.

Ok, I must have missed it somewhere... I'd like to become a vendor here, but for some reason I don't see a link to become one...
Scott
Nevermind, I saw it. Did want to ask, whats the rules on links to my business website if I am not a vendor? Is that legal? If not, I will rip it out of my sig asap.

I asked this question of the admins because I figured it would come up.

If you are not actively marketing your products, then you are ok.

I offered up JR from Warrior as an example, I know he works for Warrior but he likes to help out with questions. He isn't actively marketing Warrior products here and is a welcomed member of the community.

If you cross the line, we will let you know.

If you would like to provide press releases we will post them up for you.

However we would certainly prefer those that will benefit from being here to sponsor our site and our community.

Good deal. As said, I do plan on eventually become a vendor here, and plan on being around here for a while. I have some general knowledge of jeep vehicles, and such, and would also love to learn more about JK's. Thanks for the answer Michael!

"Superwinch EPi9.0 on stock stubbified bumper"

I love the end caps! I've been thinking about how to do a lost cost winch front end. Did you cut off the ends of the bumper and secure them to the shortened mid-section? What was required to mount you Superwinch? Any pictures you could share? Thanks!

Great Site Lance!

It's a great idea to have a specific site for "jk owners". This site is very helpful to me already, and I only joind what 4 days ago? I asked questions about the Hesco supercharger and with in an hour I had responce. This site also helps you make desicions on expensive equipment such as the supercharger .

Hi, Lance (and everyone). Great site!
I've been a Jeep owner for many years, as have my 3 sons (old Cherokee, 2 XKs, a Grand and TK. My new JK is due for delivery late this month (Feb.08)...Can't Wait! I've ordered it as trail-ready as possible (short of being a Rubicon), with elect rear locker and sway bar disconect. We're planning a trip in July to Colorado (Telluride area) for a week+ of Jeeping. That's a l-o-n-g treck form Florida but we love the sites out there. Till my Jeep comes in I'm browsing everything on the Net that I can find, so here I am and glad for the company. A question: I've read the 3.8 seems to get stronger after about 5K or so. Anyone having that experience?

The fly-by-wire system "learns" your driving style in the first few thousand miles. It seems completely gutless at first (and if you have an auto, you're really not going to like it) but things DO improve. Congrats on the new ride.
