"When" it is necessary to Carry these in your ZJ



High Intensity Road Flares

$40.99

Many modern day vehicles are equiped with high intensity (xenon) headlights. Unfortunately, this makes unsafe conditions for the broken-down motorist. Your old flares just don't grab attention when the daylight-projecting HID car comes racing around the corner at multiples of the legal speed limit. Who else but KaleCoAuto to provide a solution? These are KaleCoAuto's finest road flares. They are specially made to compete with modern HID lighting, and provide the best bang for your buck you can get! A word of warning, you may want to take at least three steps back after lighting, these flares are extremely bright.

When you're sore the next day from working on it all day.

When your friend with a JK and payments gets jealous.

When you purposely park next to the other modded ZJ at the auto parts store. Walk in to buy an oil change and end up having a 30 minute convo with the sales associate who you just happened to run into who drives the other ZJ outside.

There's a girl who has a black limited zj with 4.5" lift and 33s and she's cute too. I've only seen her twice though.

You know you drive a 4.0 zj when it stops faster and harder with brakes that need replaced than it does taking off.

When you feel the ABS pump on a hard stop on dry pavement, and the rear end still slides out.
