Jeep Regear Special

Jeep Re-gear Special

What’s the worst thing about lifting your Jeep and setting it up with bigger tires?  Ask any veteran Jeeper who uses their rig as both a daily driver and weekend warrior and it won’t take long to uncover the frustration of losing 6th (and sometimes 5th) gear.

Some folks will just go with the flow and chalk up the loss of highway speed as part of the exchange for better off-road handling.  After all, you can’t have the best of both worlds… right?

We beg to differ!  You CAN have an awesome off-road Jeep AND a daily commuter that performs well on the highway.  The solution is finding the right gear ratio for your Jeep needs.

Axleboy is here to help give meaning back to 6th gear… without breaking the bank.  Right now, save over $300 off the cost of installing your choice of 4.56, 4.88 or 5.13 gear ratio in your JK.  Prices start as low as $1795 per Jeep* so what are you waiting for?

Check out this awesome offer and lock in the opportunity to:

  • Improve your gas mileage

Why We Put Off Auto Repairs and Service?

When it comes to car care, we believe that dependable cars are the ones that are well maintained.  There are a lot of reasons why vehicles may not receive the maintenance or repairs that they need in a timely manner.  We’ve found that people typically put off vehicle maintenance and repairs for one of three main reasons: Price, Forgetfulness & Denial.

Dollar Stretching Makes Cents…Right?

Last time we checked, the average person doesn’t drive around town looking for ways to put more money in their car.  In fact, quite the opposite is true.  There are a number of ways that people attempt to cut short term costs, including: intentionally stretching service intervals, putting off minor repairs that do not effect immediate drivability (headlights, tail lights, rough idle) or waiting until they receive a discount coupon in the mail.

Regular oil changes, semi-annual tire rotations and other routine services can seem to add up relatively quick and it can be tempting to push them past the suggested limits.  In the short term, this offers car owners relatively little financial relief, and over time, creates a destructive habit that literally shaves years off the life of a vehicle.

It Just Slipped My Mind

Life is busy.  Between work, school, family responsibilities and social priorities our attention often focuses on the most critical items first…making it oh so easy to forget the basic maintenance needs of our vehicles.  If it’s not screaming for attention, it must be ok, right?

Every car owner wants to have that long-lasting dependable vehicle, the one that they can count on for that weekend getaway or that cross-country trek.  That is where Axleboy comes in.  We not only service and repair vehicles, but we also send out occasional service reminders, letting you know that it’s a good time to start thinking about scheduling routine maintenance.

No, It’s Supposed To Sound Like That

When you first notice a slight ticking sound in your car or a strange odor what do you do?  Without fail, there are always a few people who will just turn up the radio and pretend that there is nothing wrong.  To our knowledge, a self-repairing car has yet to be invented and from a historical standpoint, ignoring even minor issues can eventually grow into a situation that leaves the driver both stranded and frustrated.

 

At the end of the day, there will always be reasons why people don’t maintain or repair their vehicle…but if you want a vehicle you can count on, then regular service and maintenance are a must.  Let’s face it, all machines require a certain amount of work to keep them running.  The only question is who to trust under your hood.

Axleboy has the knowledge and reputation of dependability and integrity that you can rely on and we firmly believe that if you take care of your car, it will take care of you.  Schedule your routine service appointment today by calling (636)939-5337.

Over the Top!

What’s on your agenda once the weather turns warm and we start seeing more nice weekends?  Whether you plan to go fishing, hunting, camping, off-roading or some combination, Axleboy is equipped to customize your Jeep and keep it running strong.

If you are thinking about taking your Jeep on a destination trip this year, there are several things to think about before you leave the comforts of home.  Depending on the type of terrain you plan to cover, you may be considering a suspension upgrade, Yukon gears, new tires or a WARN winch.  These are all “must have” modifications if you plan to take things off the beaten path.  What more could you possibly want on your Jeep?

Our parts manager, Joel suggests, “How about a roof-top tent?  It’s a pretty cool idea if you plan to go on an expedition.”  Yeah, that’s right…a roof-top tent.  Forget about having to stake out that perfect spot to erect a tent on the rocky slopes of Montana or the rain saturated ground of Missouri in springtime.

The roof-top tent offers any outdoor expeditionist a flat, pebble and root-free place to lie down at the end of a long day.  It also provides a valuable element of convenient protection from wildlife (Lions and Tigers and Squirrels…oh my!), flash floods and muddy ground.

While most industries claim to think outside the box (a.k.a. Jeep), the experts at Axleboy are happy to build all around it, under the hood and even on the roof.  Give us a call at (636) 939-JEEP for an estimate on the installation of your new roof-top tent.
