Install Cold Air Intake

1. Make sure your car is in park and the engine turned off before you start the installation. The emergency brake should also be engaged and the battery’s negative cable disconnected at the hood.

2. Use the flat-head screwdriver to remove clamps that are found around the hose intake on the engine’s throttle body. The screw driver will help make loose the screws that hold the clamp secure.

3. Use the Torx wrench to remove from the cold air tube, the mass air flow unit. The Philips screwdriver or the flat-head can also be used for this job. The sensor can be damaged when removing the mass air flow unit so caution should be taken.

4. Take the air box apart by unclasping the latches on it. The air box should then be removed completely from the engine bay. After this the stock air filter should be located and removed.

5. At the end of the intake tube connecting to the throttle body, insert a coupling. The other end should then be placed over the body

Road Safety with Sport Vehicles

Most importantly, understand the limitations of your vehicle. SUVs perform much differently than smaller passenger cars, and are typically much larger and heavier. Given their increased size, more work is required from an SUV’s brakes and engine to brake and accelerate, as well as stay under control on the road. By braking quickly, you will put great stress on your brakes, causing them to wear extremely quickly. Over time, worn brakes will dramatically increase the distances required to come to a stop, and failures are a constant threat, introducing the potential for a rear end accident or breakdowns costing thousands of dollars to repair.

In the same way, quickly accelerating will put added stress on your engine, potentially leading breakdowns. Added weight also raises the center of gravity, making it more top heavy through turns. If taken too quickly, a turn can cause an SUV to roll onto its roof. By turning gradually, you will keep your wheels firmly planted on the ground.

The physical boundaries of your vehicle should also be understood, as an SUV may

Use Of Spacers In Wheels

Increase the bolt pattern

When the wheel spacer is fixed to the wheel hub of the car, the bolt pattern which exists presently will be modified. A good wheel adapter can easily change the patterns of bolts from a 4 bolt to a 6 bolt type. When the number of bolt increases that attachment of the wheel onto the spacer becomes firmer. The chances of wheels coming off are minimized. With the inclusion of spacer, you can use custom wheels on your car. With the increase in the number of bolts options, this becomes easier. The offset of the cart also is raised which aids you in better control of the car.

Get the right fit

With the independence of buying a tire after spacers are fitted, you can enhance the looks of your car with custom tire fitting. Purchase of the wheel spacer should be made with care. The wrong spacer can spell risk factors increase for you. Consult a person who has the technical knowledge of spacer and can guide you for purchasing the right product

Crossover SUV

Pro: Smaller Size For A More Efficient, Agile Ride

Crossovers are lighter and more agile than full sized SUVs, which means a more responsive driving experience as well as better efficiency and kms. Since it doesn’t have to be built for heavy duty towing or hauling capacity, they are able to cut down on weight and size. This fact also helps the crossover to be more stable, since it is lower to the ground and is thus much less likely to roll over during a wreck. Plus, the smaller size and lower stature of the vehicle makes it easier to fit in both your garage or a tight parking space in town.

Today’s drivers and economy require good kms and an efficient ride, and that is a major reason why the crossover has become so popular. In fact, many of them offer a sporty ride that you would expect from a sedan or a coupe.

Con: Less Power, Capability Than A Truck Or Full Sized SUV

On the other hand, motorists who need to haul or tow very heavy loads will find that a full sized SUV or truck works better for them. As

Storing Gear

The most basic storage on a ute is on the back of a metal tray. Many of these have sides, but a lot of them don’t. Either way, anything in the back of a ute must be tied down and secured unless you have a canopy fitted. This can be a real inconvenience, as it takes quite a lot of time to tie everything down. The other issue is the weather that can get into a utes storage space. If you don’t have a canopy, expect everything on the tray to get wet, and damaged by the sun.

On the other hand, you have less restrictions for space; if you want to take a motorbike or other large item on the back of the ute you don’t have to worry about height restrictions. This is why a lot of people don’t bother about fitting a canopy. There are a number of canopies available; fibreglass, steel, canvas and aluminum. Some are removable, and some are permanently bolted down. If you have the ute covered over, it becomes easier to set up the inside of the ute permanently.

Drawers are a common addition to utes, to ensure that

Things Before Buying An SUV

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The compact SUVs have a single rear seat and offer seating capacity of at least five adults. Mid-size SUVs usually have a single rear seat, but the larger ones can have an extra rear seat. As a result, the larger ones can offer seating capacity of at least eight adults. The full-size SUVs have two rear seats and offer seating capacity of at least eight adults.

You can fold and remove the rear seats to make room for more cargo. The compact ones have maximum capacity of 70 cubic feet. The mid-size ones have maximum capacity of 100 cubic feet. The full-size ones have capacity of more than 100 cubic feet.

Luxury and Safety

Regardless of the group, SUVs have similar features when it comes to convenience and luxury. Some of the most popular features are special storage bins, rear-seat entertainment systems, keyless start systems and Bluetooth capability, navigation systems, iPod interfaces, heated seats, and automatic climate control.

SUV manufacturers make sure that there is no compromise with passenger safety. Apart from the strong and sturdy frames, SUVs also come with features like stability control, side curtain airbags, front-seat

Having a 4WD

Most awnings on the side of the vehicle are 2.5 metres x 2 metres, or 2 metres by 2 metres. The longer side is usually the one running length ways along your vehicle, so make sure you measure to see which is going to sit the best. These things are great, and incredibly cheap. In fact, you can get a good quality one for under $300, and fit it in around an hour.

4WD Awnings are designed to be set up by one person, and very quickly. The procedure normally involves unzipping the case, un-clipping the supports, rolling the awning out and standing the legs up. The legs are incorporated inside the aluminium frame that the awning rolls out of. Stand them up, attach the supports and if it is windy, put a few pegs in the ground with guy ropes going to the awning. I usually suggest that pegging it down is a good idea, as a gust of wind will pick the whole thing up, and dump it on your vehicle. This often results in panel damage!

4WD Awnings are completely weather proof; I have had a puddle of water build up on our

Tricks Use Maxtrax

If you are stuck in sand, simply remove them from their storage location (a lot of people mount them on roof racks with the supplied mounts), dig some of the sand out of the way and put them as far under the wheels as possible. Maxtrax have the ability to be used as a shovel, making life very easy. Once you have a pair (make sure they are used on the same axle or you will get crossed up) under the wheels, gently accelerate until the vehicle grabs the Maxtrax and goes forward. These can be used in forward or reverse motions, and if you have a second set can be used together (1 on each wheel).

There are a number of alternatives to Maxtrax, but you get what you pay for. In mud, Maxtrax also works exceptionally well. Simply move a bit of the mud out of the way (or just jam them under the tyres) and you are set to go. The advantage of storing these on top of your vehicles is that when they are dirty, you don’t have to put them in your car!

Maxtrax come in a number of colours, and

SUV Safety Changed

From Small Truck To Big Car

One of the biggest changes manufacturers made is hard to notice at first glance. Originally built on traditional truck frames, most SUVs now ride on a form of adapted car chassis, lowering the centre of gravity, improving handling and stability and even reducing the weight. This one, albeit fairly substantial, change has proven to nearly eliminate rollovers, the most dangerous problem once faced by SUV drivers.

SUVs: Smarter Than Ever

The other major contributor to the modern SUV’s enhanced stability is the advent of advanced, computer-based electrical systems intended to detect and react to potential rollover situations. Many manufacturers have implemented specific anti-rollover technology that can sense when the vehicle is listing too much to one side and adjust break pressure and engine speed to avoid an accident.

More Interior Space Means More Airbags

While multiple airbag systems have become a common feature on many vehicles, the sheer amount of open space inside an SUV makes extended airbag coverage all the more vital. Airbags aren’t just found in the steering wheel and dashboard anymore, full-length side curtain, seat mounted side impact and even drivers side knee airbags

Trunk Mount Bike Rack

The primary benefit is that the overall charges will be very low and affordable. It doesn’t need any roof rack or hitch and it are considered as the ideal choice for occasional short journeys. Most of these racks are user-friendly, and can easily carry 2-4 bikes. They are easily affordable and stored. The trunk mount bike rack blends security and provides greater clearance over other spoilers. It is more convenient for using and storage purpose.

The molded rubber pads are provided to give a firm support and hold the vehicle along with proper protection from scratches. As it can hold more than one bike, it is very important to handle the contact between the bike and the bike along with that of car and bike. The anti-sway cages play an important role in handling such contacts and the bicycle arms provide ample spacing to avoid the contact damage. It cushions the bike along with maximum security.

The levers of the trunk mount bike rack allow adjusting the bicycle arms easily as well as independently. This feature is designed to support all types of bike frames.

This type of rack is also available with another important

Prestige Car Hire

Petrol and Diesel Will Run Out Fast

Most rentals allow a mileage of 100 miles per day, with additional miles available for a surcharge. That might seem like loads. But, depending on the make and model of the car that you choose, you’ll need to fill up before you reach the 100 mile mark. Plus, you’ll usually have to return the car with a full tank of fuel, so fill up only about a mile before you reach your location to make sure you don’t have to pay any surcharges.
Under 25? You’ll Have to Pay

Some companies let those that are under 25 drive premium cars. But it’s a select few – generally, the consensus is that the younger you are, the more risk and therefore the more likely it is that you’ll damage the car or get into an accident. As such, premiums for the day are usually extremely high for those under 25 and some companies will veto you altogether. If you’ve held a valid driving license and had no driving offences or tickets since you were old enough to drive, then you’re in with a better chance. But be prepared to pay

Repaint Jeep Wheels

The first thing is removing the Jeep wheels in pairs. Untie the lug nuts on the front wheels and lift the jeep with a car lift. Ensure the jack is securely standing on the vehicle. Lower the Jeep lifts until an equal weight is distributed between the lift and jack stands.

Use the 400-grit sandpaper to sand the Wheels, rub as if you are washing the Jeep. Ensure you keep the sandpaper wet the entire time. Use water from a bucket or running water hose pipe. The water is usually used to keep build-up of the old paint from scratching into the surface of the wheel. Sand the surface until the wheel feels smooth to the hand. Remove any rough spots and any scratches or surface rust.

After removing the dirt apply degreaser. Once applied, wash the Jeep wheel off with water. Allow the wheel ample time to dry completely. Apply masking tape on the tires sidewall and also around the tire’s valve stem this is to limit the overspray from the paint. Ensure that no parts of the wheel are masked. Use the adhesive promoter and spray the primer in light thin coats so that

Tata Safari Storme

Powering the Safari Storme is the same old 2.2 litre, 4 cylinder VariCOR (remember the DiCORs of the older Safari? It’s the same thing) diesel engine that puts out 138 bhp and a torque figure of 32.6 kgm. Fuel economy is quite decent; this SUV returns around 10 kpl in the city and a little over 13 kpl on the highway. This engine has a linear power delivery and can pull the car quite nicely till the tachometer gets up to 4,500 RPM; although be warned that things do get rather loud once you’re past 3,500 RPM. The short throw gearbox feels true but it does require a little effort in operating it. If you have driven the previous Safari, one improvement that you will notice right away is the fact that the Storme feels a lot smoother and refined. And thanks to new sound deadening features, the passenger cabin is a lot quieter as well. Also adding to this feeling of refinement is the new wishbone suspension with coil springs at the front. A wider track at both ends does increase stability but not by all that much; go around twisty roads at speed and it feels

About Off Road Modifications

Some people find the sport intimidating because they have an impression that it is expensive. Luckily, there are cheaper options such as aftermarket upgrades that are available in the market.

Here are some of the top modifications that can improve a vehicle’s off-roading capability:

Off-road tires are more expensive than your regular tires. The price of mud tires usually start at $100. This is the most basic upgrade that a budding off-roader can start with. These type of tires have deeper treads and offer excellent traction to withstand different off-roading conditions.

Cold air intakes and air filters are another must have when you go off-roading. It enhances a vehicle’s performance by improving its airflow. Some of the most popular brands are AFE, Volant and K&N.

Another popular upgrade is shock absorbers. High quality shocks are essential to help control the suspensions and to improve the ride quality and handling of a vehicle, on and off-road. Rancho and Bilstein are two of the most popular shock absorber brands in the market.

Lights are another must have. Visibility is one of the most important concerns of outdoor adventurers. Different types of off-road lights such as

Ford Poised

Ford has asserted its plans to release its subcompact SUV Ecosport in more than 60 countries all over the world from just 10 in the current picture. The Escape renamed as Kuga outside North America is set to make its release to Chinese markets this year. The huge investment was said to be a major bet to incorporate Ford’s plan to propagate small SUVs multifold by Jim Farley, Executive Vice President-Global Sales & Marketing, and is relied upon to pay off well. Small SUVs have helped Ford to multiply their share in the market; especially traditionally toughest markets of coastal areas like California and catalyzed expansion in markets under development. CEO Alan Murray has pushed beasts like Explorer SUV on a diet to invite more customers looking for rough terrain performance, cargo space as well as fuel economy. With wealth being grown in Indian and Chinese markets, One Ford Plan has prospered very well and is expected to continue for coming years.

People around the globe have fallen amorous for these Small Utility Vehicles. The body style seems intriguing while the fact that people can sit above traffic and pack luggage as well as people in cozily,

Fit Spacers for Rims

Tire life is increased

When the spacers are inserted between the wheel and the hub of the car, the overall fitting becomes tighter. This brings down the jerking and the feel of the ride is also enhanced. If the tires are of the larger variety and the spacers are absent, there is always the possibility of the tires to rub against the body parts. This can increase the wear and tear of the tires. Increase of friction is the primary cause for this. Fitting the spacers will reduce the friction element and the lives of the tires are increased. You will have to shell out lesser money on the tire replacements.

Increase the balance of your car

With the fixation of the spacers for rims, your car balance improves. As the wheels get spaced outwards, the distance between the right and the left wheels are increased on the shaft. The weight of the car gets a better balance with a shift in the equilibrium of the car. It gets improved further when a wider tire is used. As the surface area of the tires increase, the car weight gets distributed over a wider area. This

Affordable And Versatile

The basic revamps are attributed to comfort and safety while the 2013 Sequoia offers minor mechanical under the hood transformations which seek attention. Although the Sequoia may have the bones of Tundra, Toyota’s big pickup, the ride is rather pleasing. The adaptive air suspension of the Platinum trim is meant to regulate comfort and riding pleasure. The 5.7L V8-engine’s quenching thirst for continuous supply of fuels shall not be awarded for any earth-saving accomplishments, yet it shall ensure smooth motion, acceleration, and with ultra-premium luxury. While just buying the Sequoia for the sake of hauling numerous people, alternatives lie in smaller, higher on fuel economy and easier to maneuver, crossovers; whereas towing requirements are best served by the SUV.

The new Sequoia offers seating capabilities for 7 or 8 members depending upon model selection while providing three trim variants – SR5, Limited and Platinum – each rendering both manual and automatic drive options. The exteriors remain aesthetically unaltered for the most part. It offers aerodynamically friendly mirrors, wipers, and roof rack as previous models. In addition, the newer version has headlamp washers to ensure vision as bright and clear as possible. The Limited package brings along various
