Why does ANYBODY think that a cup mount phone holderis a good idea?!?!? There are MANY things in life that I wonder about, however, a cup mount phone holder is borderline dangerous!!!
I have always heard good things about WeatherTech Products, however, seeing their cup mount phone holder, the CupPhoneproduct makes me cringe!!!
Mobile phones are often a distraction while driving, however, using mobile phones hands-free functions, lessens the dangers. Using a cup mount phone in many ways defeats the purpose of the hands-free functions!!!
IF you must use your mobile while driving, OR if you use the GPS functions, put the phone in a holder that is at LEAST within your sightline while driving!!!
Tomorrow is Go Topless Day and for some, it may be a go naked day!!! When running with the doors off, you’ll need mirrors to stay legal. If you drive a JL, you should really check out the Trail Mirrors from Motor City Aftermarket.
Motor City Aftermarkethas designed a mirror system that utilizes the windshield hinge as the mounting point, to ensure little to no vibration.
Chris from Motor City Aftermarketexplains in greater detail what makes their trail mirrors superior to competitive products.
I attended the indoor Jeep Meet & Greet and was VERY impressed with the products and Jeeps on display.
Motor City Aftermarketproducts are made from “tank DNA” as they state on their web-site, as they are closely partnered with a defense partner that produces parts for the M1 Abrams tank, Stryker vehicle, EFV, and Humvee.
All of their products are designed for no-drill installation, welded by AWS Certified welders and finished with SaltShield Coating System.
Motor City Aftermarket has what I think a great solution for trail mirrors on the JL, when the factory doors are removed. From the looks of them, I would think that there would be no vibration with them mounted to the rock catcher!!!
In addition to great products on display, Motor City had 40+ Jeeps inside on display, including Big Chief and Frakenbrute!!!
Shaun Day from Stinger Motorsport drove in their King of the Hammers rig and had it on display!!!
Back when I had my first seven slat vehicle, a 1990 Wrangler (in 1992), cell /mobile phones, were not as ubiquitous as they are today…the CB radio however, was not yet TOTALLY forgotten…
Sidebar…remember the Nextel phone, and the Push-to-Talk feature? Now, if that service still existed…and if it does, there can’t be more than two people that still have it…it would be the perfect trail comms solution.
Today, the CB radio is all but forgotten, however I believe that the CB radio is an effective trail comms solution. Many in the Jeep community would argue for the use of two-way radios, or hamm, and I understand that these technologies are in many ways better, however for overall investment, ease of use, and practicality, I believe that the CB radio is the way to go for trail comms.
I recently learned, while listening to the Jeep Talk Show, that it is a good idea to check and re-adjust your antenna tune if your antenna impacts anything on the trail AND if you remove the top and/or doors on your Jeep! Below is a great video from Right Channel Radios on how to tune your antenna.
So that’s my set up, what’s yours? Can we MAKE CB RADIO GREAT AGAIN?
