The Jeep platform has won over off-roaders around the globe for decades. With eco-friendly vehicles becoming the focus of several auto manufacturers; the makers of the Wrangler recently offered the option of a 3.0L V6 EcoDiesel engine to power the Jeep JLs. Not only would this option provide the efficiency they looked for but plenty of power that would come in handy when Chris Coffey looked hit the trails and open desert.Diesel PoweredThe V6 comes from the larger Ram trucks but is tailored for the JL Jeep. It still puts out a massive amount of torque at 442 ft. lbs. and 260hp, all with 29-mpg. This setup provides plenty of power to make crawling the rocks of Southern California no obstacle at all.When Chris picked up his diesel-engine filled Wrangler, he headed over to Off-Road Evolution to get it set up right without being too overdone.Their team, along with EVO Mfg did just that; looking at function first and finishing the Jeep off with a clean, subtle style.Low Profile, Long TravelThe limitation seen when setting up an EcoDiesel Jeep for off-roading is that you are only able to fit up to 37-inch tall tires due to interference with the windshield wiper fluid tank; without relocating it first. The crew at Off-Road Evolution had their ways of ensuring plenty of travel and off-road capabilities within the limitations of the 37s. Their natural choice was the latest in all-terrain tires from Nitto; a set of 37×12.50R17 Ridge Grapplers over 17×9-inch KMC KM325 Grenade Crawl wheels with an EVO Mfg Rear Tire Carrier securing a spare, just in case.The diesel Jeep’s suspension setup allows for a full 14-1/2 inches of travel in the front, and 14-inches in the rear with KING 2.0 bump stops. Providing that travel is EVO Mfg’s Long Arm Kit with KING 2.5 Coilovers on all 4-wheels that are tuned to EVO’s experience-driven specifications.By setting up the diesel Jeep with enough off-road capabilities without going overboard; Off-Road Evolution crafted a timeless rig with the latest eco-friendly power.HARD FACTS [ Close ]
Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel: Students studying for big exams may want to put down their neon highlighters and make some flash cards instead.Some of the most popular study strategies — such as highlighting and rereading — don’t show much promise for improving student learning, according to a new report published in Psychological Science in the Public Interest, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science.While 10 learning techniques commonly used by students and researched in the report vary widely in effectiveness, two strategies — practice testing and distributed practice — made the grade, receiving the highest overall rating.Practice testing involves using flash cards or answering questions at the end of a textbook chapter. Distributed practice is the opposite of last-minute cramming, spreading out studying over time and quizzing yourself on material long before the big test.Read the whole story: Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel

Powered by Firework The reason behind Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s brutal physical regime at Manchester United has been revealed. The training sessions of Manchester United are now getting very lengthy and the players only get one day off in the preseason training. So, the players are getting exhausted in the training sessions.Advertisement The vibes are coming that the players are not very much happy with the new training system of the manager. Accoding to the close sources, they are naming this technique too much British. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants Manchester United to be a good counter attacking team. To become a good counter attacking team, you must have to work very hard in the training session.Advertisement When, the club management of the Red Devils reviewed the performance of the previous season, they found that Manchester United failed to qualify to the Champions League in the next season because they could not play as a counter attacking side. In the training session of Solskjaer, we can witness the short sprints more than long runs. These things are suggesting that the manager of the Red Devils are determined to make Manchester United a good counter attacking side in this season. The inclusion of players like Aaron Wan Bissaka will certainly help him to implement this system properly.Daniel James is now officially a player of Manchester UnitedAdvertisement Advertisement
