Sam’s Off-Road Traction Bar

sams traction bar

Axle-wrap, it sucks worse than a visit to a proctologist with big, cold hands and long, crusty finger nails. That’s exactly why, when we decided that our Project CJ was getting super-flexy, flat springs mounted over the axle, versus the stock ‘kinda-flexy-but-not-enough-to-impress-your-friends- and-family–under-the-axle’ position, we knew we would be inheriting an age old problem, one we hadn’t ever experienced with …

Rancho’s Dual Steering Stabilizer

  As you have all seen already, I’m sure a hundred times, are steering stabilizers, and a lot of them. This simple, yet effective, bolt on accessory is very useful. As for the most part, the majority of people that buy steering stabilizers are doing it for the looks. I though, want to send the message that they are very …

Project Buckshot – Power Steering Conversion / Upgrade

Once we shod Buckshot with 35” tall tires, we knew that the aging, stock power steering system wouldn’t hack it. One or two good off-road runs would send the power steering gearbox to an early grave. To cure our substandard steering system sickness, we put a call into the experts at BC Broncos in Ingram, TX. After explaining our Bronco’s …

  Sometimes the simplest, least expensive, and easiest to install products are the ones we tend to forget about. We want lockers, a quality suspension, big tires and low gearing.

Dick Cepek’s Front Dual Shock Kit

      I sat down and considered what upgrade could I do that would be functional and have a positive affect on the looks of my truck as well. I’ve seen dual shocks on trucks forever, but didn’t want to try it because I thought I would lose ride comfort. Well, after long consideration, I decided to bite the bullet and bolt …

Mountain Off Road Enterprises (M.O.R.E.) Shackle Reversal Kit

     Why install a Shackle Reversal? Because it allows the front axle to travel in a more natural action when the spring compresses. When the vehicle tire comes in contact with an obstacle it attempts to compress the spring, but the shackle must move forward to accomplish this, so it is already fighting against itself. By moving the pivot point to …

Metal Made Rite’s Revolver Shackle system

With many 4×4 owners fabricating their own suspension systems to gain axle droop, it’s no wonder other companies aren’t jumping on the bandwagon of extreme articulation. While most are fools gold, there are a few 14 caret nuggets to be found and the revolver shackle by Metal Made Rite is one of those rare little nuggets. Hinged shackles aren’t new …

Off Road Design’s Swaybar Correction/Disconnect Kit

When surrounded by an over abundant number of Jeeps, Landcriusers, Samurais, etc., it was frustrating to me that there are a limited number “trick” parts out there for the “full sized rigs”. When I read about the JKS swaybar disconnect kit available for Jeeps, I thought to myself why couldn’t us full size guys have the same benefits? Well, low …

Stage West 4wd Wheel Spacers

Ah decisions, decisions. We knew that the CJ-5 needed stronger axles so we built a set of custom Dana 44’s. Somehow in the process we also decided that it needed more flex, so we did a spring over with Wrangler springs. When the spring over was all said and done and we stepped back to look at our work we …
