Jacobs Electronics – AccuVolt

Last November, we had the opportunity to install a Jacobs Electronics Omni Magnum ignition system in our K-5 Blazer and were pleased with the outcome. Several months and thousands of miles have gone by since, and we couldn’t be happier. Their product quality and reputation cannot be beat nor can the support team they have if you should ever need …

Hypertech’s Power Programmer

If you drive a modern 4×4 with a computer controlled engine, then adding a few extra ponies is a plug and play proposition. Hypertech has been building power adding computers for over 20 years, and when it comes to using 1’s and 0’s to do it, you can trust the computer geeks at Hypertech to unleash the power hidden in …

Auto Meter MCX Series Gauges

  Sure, we could have stayed with the old, played-out gauges in project Buckshot but they were, well – old and played out. After all, Buckshot is about serious transformation, not restoration. The stock gauges (although functional) just wouldn’t do in our radically modified ’75 Ford Bronco. We needed a solution to monitor all of the engine’s vital functions and …

But, when the light comes on, it is basically saying “Oh, by the way, you just cooked your motor or your charging system just failed you”. Well, to avoid this, there are better …

Flex-A-Lite Fix For Faulty Fan

It’s been some time since we installed our Flex-A-Lite electric puller fan in our project Land Cruiser and for the past 2 or so years, it’s worked like a champ. It’s kept our engine running at 180-200 degrees in almost any condition. That is, until recently. Our fan started acting odd about 2 months ago. The fan would come on …

MSD 6-OFFROAD IGNITION CONTROL

  In the endless search for more off-road power from your 4×4, you will eventually have to consider an ignition upgrade. While we all know about the benefits of a bigger cam, a better carburetor, or fuel injection, there’s only one way to burn the fuel, more spark.
