If you’ve got your hands on a Jeep that you intend to take off-road, odds are you’re wondering about the best Jeep accessories on the market. Here’s a quick overview of what you should be keeping in mind when shopping
You’ve probably seen Jeeps and trucks with lift kits before, but the Wrangler gets an extra kick out of a lift kit because improved ground clearance equals better off-roading adventuring.
If you enjoy crawling over rocks and through swampy, muddy terrain, a set of solid mud tires will help your Jeep perform and handle better.
If you’ve got the lift kit and bigger tires, you’ll need to be able to fit those tires on your Jeep. Bigger fender flares will make more space for your wheels.
No matter how prepared you are for going off-road, odds are you’re eventually going to get stuck somewhere. This is why you should opt for a recovery winch with a capable rope for pulling a trapped Jeep out of perilous places.
If you have any more concerns about the best Jeep accessories, don’t hesitate to call or stop in to ask us here at Rochester Hills CDJR. We’ll give you all the information you need to make a good decision.
Spring cleaning doesn’t have to just be about your house. Why not clean out your car as well? Here are some spring cleaning tips for getting the most out of cleaning your vehicle.
Toss any trash, keep what you want
Sort all the stuff laying around in your car into a “trash” pile and a “keep” pile. Toss out the fast food wrappers you’ve been hiding in your backseat and bring your gym clothes into the house and wash them for once.
Scrub and vacuum
Vacuuming is a great idea, but you should clean out any dirt that’s stuck in the carpet or in the nooks and crannies of your car’s interior by using a bristled brush to scrub it until it’s loose.
Instead of taking your car through a drive-through car wash, bring out some car-friendly soap and get down and dirty with an old-fashioned hand-washing.
Clean the windows last
If you start with your windows, grime from the rest of the car is just going to get on them again, so wait till you’ve cleaned everything else first.
Our team at Rochester Hills CDJR knows how special it feels to get into a clean, like-new car, so make sure to follow these spring cleaning tips to experience the feeling of driving a car that’s been taken care of.

Everyone knows that Ram rocks, but it’s still nice to hear.
Automotive Fleet magazine holds a yearly voting process in which its readers – over 20,000 operators and owners of commercial truck fleets in North America – select which truck they like the best. Competition in the segment is always rough, but Automotive Fleet said the votes favored a clear winner by a landslide. The results are in, and this year, the Fleet Truck of the Year title went to the Ram 1500.
The Ram 1500 is no stranger to the honor, either. This is the second time in the past three years the truck has taken home the award. The 1500 succeeded in categories such as application effectiveness, durability, quality, servicing, maintenance, and lifestyle costs. Amazingly, the Ram 1500 was one of forty trucks contending for the award, but managed to pull into the number one spot regardless.
Bob Hegbloom, the head of the Ram Brand of FCA North America, commented on the win, “Receiving an award based on such an experienced audience truly gives Ram Truck more momentum and confirms we are delivering the features most important to business owners.”
Ram enthusiastically accepted the 2015 Fleet Truck of the Year award, happy to receive recognition for their continued commitment to excellence.
