PIAA Deno Series Performance LED Lights

 LED’s aren’t new – in fact they’ve been around since 1907, and serious research started in 1936 by some really old German dude. In the last few years however, LED’s have grown well beyond your alarm clock display. They have developed so much lately, that they’re now being used as aircraft landing lights, super-bright tactical flashlights, and a myriad of …

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 …

Project Buckshot get a Roll Cage

An American author from the 20’s – John A. Shedd – once wrote, “A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.” So true these words of wisdom are, and it applies to our 4-wheel drives quite nicely, thank you. We can build or have built, the baddest, most capable off-road vehicle, and as …

Flex-a-Lite’s Mojave Auxiliary Heater Review

  Last month we told you about something new… Something that just about any home-built or highly modified 4-wheel drive probably couldn’t do without. We received word of a new product from a company who’s made it their business keeping rigs cool, and is now making a great product to keep your rig warm.

Tractech’s Truetrac Locker or Posi?

Is it a locker, is it a posi? Hum, I would have to say it falls somewhere in between. The manufacturer, Tractech calls it a limited slip differential. The TrueTrac is a gear driven traction adding device. According to Tractech, it provides a controlled amount of resistance to a one-wheel spinout, so that the other wheel (with traction) receives sufficient …

Buckshot Disc Brake Conversion

  When we bought project Buckshot, the last owner told us that it came with “MayGo” brakes. He cautioned us before the test drive stating that the Bronco “may go left, or may go right” – sometimes they didn’t stop much at all. Now, with the Skyjacker 5” lift kit installed and the 35” tall Goodyear Kevlar MT/R tires, we …
