A Visit from Dave of Rampage

  
  
  
  

Dave from Rampage and the toolbox gascan

What do you suppose the red object in the picture is? I know what you're thinking: Gascan. A good guess, but wrong. You've fallen for the ruse, dear Jeeper, for what appears to be a traditional five-gallon Jerry Can is actually a storage box in disguise — and what a storage box it is. Ideal for tools, there are more drawers and hinges than you could ever figure out what to do with, it locks tight and it even plops into the place your Jerry Can used to go before it became illegal.

This ingenious little Transformer was the star of the show when Dave Williams, of Rampage, brought a bag full of toys over for a visit to the California office of All Things Jeep. It locks too.

Dave showed off several other Rampage products as well.

Highlights:

Tops
Sad, but true: You need a top for your Jeep if you're going to drive it out any time other than, say, Summer, or select days in Spring. Their frameless top, as Dave put it, won't cost a fortune and will keep you safe from the elements.

The top is cool because it doesn't need any additional bows or support hardware, which then makes it even cooler by allowing for larger windows that minimize the threat of the ever-pesky soft-top blind spot. It installs snugly over the factory roll bar. Windows attach to the sides by way of heavy-toothed zippers, and may be removed and stashed in a pouch contained in the top itself.

It also has the distinction of being, essentially, two tops in one. When you need full enclosure, you can have it, but you can also convert to a Safari top. Good fun.

A word of warning, straight from Dave: These windows, transparent and sturdy thought they are starting out, can be discolored over time, if you use brushless car washes. The PH level of the soap involved is apparently off-the-charts acidic. So if you want clear windows, just say no to brushless car washes.

Guess what you're gonna need to make this click onto El Jeep? Quick hint: Rhymes with windshield channel.

Windshield Channels
If you're going to put a top on your jeep, you're going to need one — unless, of course, it's a YJ, in which case you're in luck and can use the factory channel.

The Rampage header channel is actually something of a picnic to adhere to the ol' Jeep. You need not drill, nor even have any tools, it just sort of clamps into place and you tighten the handles.

Double-bladed Windshield Wipers
Yes, you love getting dirty, but your windshield wipers would tell a different story if they could, y'know, talk. They'd probably complain about all the hard work they have to do while you're stomping in mud puddles. Time to put those whiny old things to rest and pick up a set of double-bladed windshield wipers. The patented Double-Blade Technology causes these babies to wipe and scrub simultaneously, a double-action wiper blade.

Each assembly includes the dual blade, frame and universal adapters so you can snap it onto your Jeep no matter what. A pretty cool invention, you ask us. We all like getting dirty, but we still like to see where we're going, right?

Hood Locks

No one likes to return to the parked JK to discover that some dip has helped himself to a free battery. The most obvious reason to have a hood lock is to prevent this. It's also nice, though, that they cut down on the flutter that occurs when you start to pick up speed. The one Dave showed us was die cast, not stamped, metal, which is a plus when you consider how much you'll probably beat it up, the latch being the only protection the stuff under your hood has from the outside world.

Headlight Guards

These headlight guards snap in place. Isn't that cool? After all, in Dave's own words, "Usually, you have to knock the damn grille off." And who wants to go around knocking the damn grille off?

Other stuff

Generally, we had a blast scoping out all the cool Jeep stuff from Dave's bag of tricks. Pizza and a good time was had by all. Party down with Dave Williams if you see him walking down the street. Just don't ask him to navigate out of the wacky maze that is San Jose Mineta airport.

Spiderweb Tops — Go Topless and Avoid Sunburn

  
  
  
  

2011 05 15 spiderwebshade amanda daytona beach 5811 2Spiderweb Jeep Girl Amanda says, "Get a SpiderWeb Top."

It’s mid-Summer, and we’re all driving around topless. Ah, the open air, the open view, the wind ruffling your hair ... Ah, the sunburn, the wind-blasted ears ... That's life, baby. The good goes with the bad.

Yup, too much of this good thing can make you rue the day you dropped your top, as red skin peels and the UV has its way with vulnerable interiors. Baking in the sun gets pretty old, too. And don't you wish there was just a little less wind whistling past your ears?

Sure, you're a moth to the topless flame, but what if there was a way to combine the freedom of going topless with the shade a top affords?

Enter: The SpiderWeb summer tops, which answer the Jeepster-specific Summer conundrum. The see-through mesh blocks 90% of the sun's harmful UV rays, but allows enough light in so that you still feel great and topless, not to mention see the summer sky.

Speaking of fastening, you've never attached a top that goes on as easily as the SpiderWeb Mesh tops. A system of special bungees (spider balls), included, quickly and easily strap the top on. They don’t even require the installation of windshield channels.

 SPIDERBALLIn all it's glory: a Spiderball

Naturally, removing the top is a breeze, too.

Speaking of breeze, the SpiderWeb Mesh Top cuts down on enough wind that you can, say, speak and hear during fast Jeeping — E.g. You can hear a phone while driving 70mph.

It doesn't replace going topless, but its damn close, and when you're done jeeping, none of your so-called friends will have cause to slap you on the back and laugh as you writhe on the floor in blister-popped pain.

No matter what sort of Jeep you’re in, we have a top that fits. Any doubts about how easily they are installed may be curbed by watching the lovely Amanda set up one of the two-piece SW2 models here. The Jeep guys may enjoy watching this more than the Jeep girls will.

Go Topless Day countdown, weather, mousepad

  
  
  
  

curwx 600x405
Weather looks promising enough. Let's hope it keeps through our topless weekend.

Here we are, a scant four days away from our holiday that they wouldn’t understand.  Yes, Jeepers, three sunrises, four sunsets, away. Here in California, as always, the weather is sunny and cheery and in fact we’re all practicing for Go Topless Day by knocking our tops off and Jeeping about. In fact, across most of the country, we have nice, sunny pleasant weather. If we can keep this up for another few days, Go Topless Day will go off without a hitch.

The weather map confirms this story – very few patches of precipitation, and only in pockets of the East Coast. Should clear up – just don’t go sending it this way!

The bad news is that, while we’ve been shipping Go Topless Day shirts by the bucket, the days between now and Go Topless Day are growing a bit thin to rely on postal service delivery by May 19. Hope you’ve already got your Go Topless gear!

This Go Topless Day Mousepad can be yours ... free

If not, don’t despair, all orders totaling $75 or more earn you free standard shipping, along with a free Go Topless Day keepsake in the form of a pretty groovy little mousepad. Thus, every time you go to your computer to connect with Jeepsters and log onto AllThingsJeep.com, you’ll be reminded of your 2012 Go Topless Day. Cool even if it comes after Go Topless Day – it’s not like you’ll use your mousepad on Go Topless Day itself, anyway!

Go Topless in Foxboro, MA

  
  
  
  
GTD12 MA EVENT POSTER 

Local Jeep owners and off-road enthusiasts will join All Things Jeep and Ocean State Jeepsters for the Foxboro, MA, celebration of the fifth annual Go Topless Day.  It will be held at WC Motorsports, just across the street from Gillette Stadium. The event, hosted by Michael and Stephen Nashawaty of Taunton, MA, will be sure to send hundreds of Jeeps crawling up Route 1!

The event will feature a Rock Garden, RTI Ramp, a “Jeep Playground,” activities for the kids, food vendors, Jeep vendors and Raffles.

More details may be found at http://www.allthingsjeep.com/ go-topless-day.html. If you're not lucky enough to live in Massachusetts, be sure to check the site – chances are, your local Jeep club is coming around and hosting an event of its own.

For more info, contact us at gtd@allthingsjeep.com.

Go Topless Day is a worldwide phenomenon during which off-roaders shed their Jeeps' tops in celebration of the sport of off-roading.  The first Go Topless Day was held in the spring of 2008, a small gathering of enthusiasts in Lancaster, MA. The idea came to Jean and Norman Wnuk, founders of AllThingsJeep.com, as they thawed out during the close of a brutal New England Winter. They realized that Jeep and Off-Road communities needed a special day to rejoice the beginning of the Topless Season.

Since then, participation has grown to over 150 clubs, as Go Topless Day annually unites topless Jeepers everywhere to celebrate of the off-road lifestyle and form parades, organize cleanup events, picnics and, our favorite, pose for pictures.

Earth Day Celebration, AllThingsJeep.com and BlueRibbon Coalition united!

  
  
  
  

Earth Day _ All Things Jeep and BlueRibbon Coalition

We at All Things Jeep are turning Earth Day into a Jeep thing — from now through Sunday, we will donate 5% of proceeds to the BlueRibbon Coalition, an organization dedicated to preserving open space for the Off-Road community.

Since the late ‘80s, the BlueRibbon Coalition has been working to educate the public about the off-road sport while bringing attention to issues involving land use to a national level. The coalition protects the notion that public lands and the natural resources contained therein should be accessible to the public.

As fellow Jeepers, we feel that our regulars would agree with a sentiment that keeps your Jeep on the trail. So, all you have to do help the BlueRibbon Coalition protect your trail is buy lots of cool Jeep stuff. Not such a bad way to celebrate Earth Day!

Still need another excuse to load up on Jeep stuff? Just check in to AllThingsJeep.com this weekend and you’ll get a free Go Topless Day sweatshirt with the purchase of any sweatshirt plus Free Shipping on orders over $75 — and it’s this weekend only.

Earth Day — it’s a Jeep thing. For more information on the BlueRibbon Coalition, visit  http://www.sharetrails.org

Five Jeep Gifts That Will Fit in a Christmas Stocking

  
  
  
  

We have a tradition at our house that no presents can be opened on Christmas morning until everyone is awake and downstairs. This annoys the heck out of the little kids because us parents don't want to get up as early as they do. Especially after a crazy holiday season in retail, Christmas morning is one of the first days off where we don't get up before the sun. Thankfully, we started a tradition many years ago which allows the grown-ups to get just a little more sleep before trudging downstairs, bleary-eyed. We let the kids go through their stockings as soon as they are up. They can't touch the presents under the tree, but they can dump out their stocking and see what's inside. In the spirit of "the stocking's importance can never be underestimated", here's a few goodies that will fit inside your stocking.

Pack a few of these Jeep Stocking Stuffers into the stocking of any Jeep lover, along with some Christmas candy, and you'll have them smiling from head to toe. The Jeep stuff is cute and quirky and definitely unique.

1. Cute, Festive, Jeep Christmas Tree Ornaments for 2011 - We've taken some of our favorite holiday cards and turned them into cute little Christmas Tree Ornaments. They are fun, unique and only $5.99 each. We have a few different designs. Here's the rest of the Jeep Xmas Ornaments.

Would You Buy Chrysler Stock?

  
  
  
  

This week Chrysler announced that it could raise its financial targets for 2010 in the second half of the year and that it aims for a public offering of its stock "as quickly as possible." The new Chrysler Chief Executive Officer, Sergio Marchionne reported this on Monday, May 10th, and I think he impressed almost everyone with this announcement.

As far as I can tell, Chrysler stock has not been traded publicly since Cerebrus Capital Management bought the company in 2007 and made it privately-held. Back when it was a tradeable stock, the symbol was a "C", but that is now designated for Citibank. (What do you think the new symbol should be?)

So what's new on the horizon for Chrysler and will its stock be a good investment? Let's see, there's a new Jeep on the horizon - the all new 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee, scheduled to arrive in June. It's expensive! A few thousand bucks over $30,000. But its the first and only new offering in 2010, manufacturered under Jeep's new ownership. And so far, reviews are good.

On the other hand, according to Reuters, "Chrysler has forecast negative cash flow of $1 billion for 2010 and earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization of between $2.5 billion to $2.7 billion. It expects to at least break even on an operating basis in 2010 and on a net level in 2011."

Breakeven doesn't give me warm and fuzzy feelings. But I'm rooting for you Chrysler. I want you do do well. I want the stock to be traded publicly. I want it to go up. I want stockholders to be happy. I want new Jeeps coming off the production line.

So, my question is this: Would you buy Chrysler stock? What is your prognosis for the future of Chrysler? Do you believe in it enough to own a piece of it? Oh wait, we DO own a piece of it. The US Government, and all its taxpayers actually own about 10% of the Chrysler Group. But whether I purchase my own personal shares or not, I'm rooting for you Chrysler!

Jeep Versus Hummer. Who will we hate now?

  
  
  
  

Boston Red Sox versus New York Yankees. Dogs versus Cats. Chocolate versus Vanilla. And Jeeps versus Hummers. As long as there have been civilian Jeeps and Hummers, there's been a rivalry. Often heated! One of the very first tee-shirts All Things Jeep produced was the "Hummer Recovery Vehicle" Tee. It was a best-seller, providing an accurate perspective of the off-road abilities of these two vehicles (as seen through the eyes of a Jeep dude.)

We sold a lot of these tees until the lawyers at GM contacted us one day and told us to stop selling them or else they would "take action". We were just a little Jeep company. We stopped selling them. But that was probably the first and last time Hummer ever bullied Jeep.

We've always enjoyed the debate, the name calling, the mockery. And the jokes about Hummers. Risque enough for us to not print them here! So, in honor of the passing of the Hummer, a small tribute. Hummer, we barely knew you. Which vehicle will Jeep owners hate now?
