OUR JEEP® WRANGLERS
It may happen when the vehicle “walks” an upsweep of rock to Chicken Point. It may happen during the steep but smooth ride down the “Road of No Return”. But sooner or later your thoughts will stray from the beauty of the surroundings, drift away from your guide’s informational talk, and suddenly you realize there is a lot more to this Jeep® Wrangler than meets the eye.
Pink Jeep Tours has a commitment to you to provide the safest, most comfortable, and enjoyable vehicle for your tour.
When it comes to the design, construction, maintenance, and all around safety of our 65 vehicle fleet, turn to our own Pink Jeep Tours Service Center in Sedona.
Every guide is assigned his or her own vehicle. This allows the guide to become very familiar with the vehicle’s idiosyncrasies.
Every vehicle starts its day with a twenty-point inspection. After inspection sheets are turned in, the fleet manager reviews the information.
Any potential problems are handed to the service manager, and then work orders are assigned to the technicians. The service manager completes all follow up to assure the job was completed.
Additionally, to meet or exceed our record of safety and security, each and every vehicle is on a stringent preventative maintenance schedule. Every 30 days, each vehicle is pulled “off line” and goes through a rigorous 55-point inspection and regular servicing.
Nothing is left to chance!
We are going to walk you through the build process of a new Jeep® Wrangler – Here is a stock Jeep® Wrangler before it became a tour vehicle. We start off using a normal Jeep® Wrangler that we purchase from a private party or dealer.
We remove all of the stock parts that are not used and strip the vehicle down to the basic body.
Here you can see the stock suspension has been removed and the new upgraded Long Arm suspension and axles are installed. We change the gearing in the axles from 3.73:1 to 4.56:1 to allow the vehicle to crawl over the rocks easier. The front axle is beefed up by adding ¼ inch thick sleeves inside the axle tubes and gussets from the ball joint bracket to the axle tubes. Heavy duty custom springs are installed along with heavy duty steering linkage. The Stock Dana 44 rear axle is removed and a heavy duty Dana 60 axle is installed.
After fab and suspension work – Here you can see the canopy and seating has been installed along with all of the body parts. We do a test fit on all the parts to make sure everything fits right and works like it should before it goes into the paint area.
This shows the Jeep® in “pink” primer. We use a colored primer so that when we get rock chips it does not show. The lettering is painted on in black before the base pink coat is applied. After the pink paint is applied it is covered with a clear coat for durability. High wear areas like the floor, steps and grab handles are painted with a colored bedliner material.
Here is the finished product and it is ready for tours. All of the work done on the Jeep® Wrangler is done “in house” other than the upholstery. The whole process takes about 9 weeks from start to finish.
