Dressing Up The JK Wrangler

Article written by Moab Man

Date Added: 07/06/2008

From time-to-time we check in with John, President Litegrip.com, to see what he has to offer in Jeep accessories. This time we got the scoop on a brand new product idea and saw what he had done with the Litegrip JK.

The first product we came upon, and the original product that started the company, is the Litegrip itself. John tells us the Jeep JK offers an excellent, out of the way mounting location immediately below the seat.
One hole already exists in the factory seat rails, and only one additional hole needs to be drilled using the Litegrip collar as a template.
We really like this mounting location in the JK. It?s tucked out of the way and not floor-mounted as it is in our TJ. This is an advantage because in the TJ, the collar?s plastic tightening screw sticks up where it can be inadvertently broken.
Moving around to the other side of the Jeep, we find the Firegrip mounted in the same location.
As with the Litegrip, only one hole needs to be drilled.
Shift Knobs
Looking much better than stock, we really like the 6 speed laser engraved shift knob.
And a matching t-case shifter.
Product Scoop
We?re not sure what the name is for this developing new product, but we hope it makes the cut.

Located between the sport bars (roll bars for those not hung up on legalize) and the hardtop on the passenger side, essentially dead space, we found a Litegrip branded clamping bracket holding a shovel and axe.

Breaking from tradition, this product is made from stainless steel instead of aluminum.
Mounting and releasing the shovel and axe requires no tools, just a simple turn of some large hand screws.

Those using soft tops will need to either leave the top up or remove it and its hardware from the Jeep to use this product.

Final Thoughts

If you like the new shovel/axe mount brackets, contact Litegrip. At present (06/29/2008) this product is not listed at Litegrip.com but may be available at the time you're reading this.
