Innovate Motorsports’ RAD-1 Digital Inclinometer

Innovate Motorsports’ RAD (Rollover Avoidance Device) inclinometer system is a new twist on an old concept – keeping your rig’s roof pointing up and the tires pointing down, not vice versa. Inclinometers though, have been around as long as I can remember, and they get their roots from the aviation industry. They are bloody simple by design… some floating, weighted …

Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo Tires

In an effort to find the best all around tire for our Chevrolet Z-71 4×4 we happened across the new Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo tires. Our Chevy Z-71 truck is used for a multitude of tasks, these include: hunting, fishing, camping, towing, and daily driver. With these varied duties, we needed a tire that could stand up to rough rocky …

Firestone Destination MT Tire Review

  In my never-ending quest to modify all things Jeep, I have recently begun to build a very straight and mostly stock 1980 CJ-7. Although it isn’t my Jeep, I couldn’t stand idly by and let this poor, helpless Jeep live such a boring “OE” life. While not the most aesthetically pleasing of all Jeeps on the planet, the combination …

Interco’s TSL Super Swamper Radial VS. BF Goodrich’s Radial Mud Terrain   Here it is folks, the long awaited tire review that many of you have asked for. We took two of the most popular rock crawling tires on the market and put them to the test. This isn’t a one-person, one-sided review either. We put same-zie tires on similar …

Walker Evans Beadlock Wheel

A little bling is never a bad thing and custom wheels, perhaps more than any other modification to a vehicle, can provide dramatic improvements in in both performance and style – the best of both worlds if you will. Our Jeep CJ5 now has more bling than I ever imagined I would put on it, but these new Walker Evan …

db Performance Exhaust Jeep JK

  As most of you already know the 3.8 Liter V-6 engine in the Jeep JK is anemic and underpowered. While 205 H.P. and 240 lb/ft of torque sound impressive, once you start adding heavy duty parts to a 2-ton Jeep, it just doesn’t cut it and ‘more go’ is definitely needed. Our 2007 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 2-door edition already …

Goodyear Wrangler GSA’s

Our often used and usually abused tow rig, a 1999 Chevrolet Silverado, was desperately in need of some new tires. On what little tread was left, our old tires were showing their cords and had more curves and cups than a sumo wrestler feasting at Krispy Kreme. We made a call of desperation to Goodyear and were surprised by their …

Allied RockCrusher RT Rock-A-Thon Bead Lock Wheels

The first time we bumped into the folks at Allied Wheel Components was at the 2005 SEMA Off Road show in Indianapolis. To be honest, we figured their “new wares” were nothing more than a makeover of the same old beadlock rim you’d find from just about any off-road wheel manufacturer, which seemed to be the case for every other …

Flex-a-Lite’s Black Magic X-Treme Electric Fan

For those of us that have made engine modifications, particularly larger-engine transplants, overheating is a common problem. There are a number of cures for this, but in the end, there are only a few things in your cooling system that will make a big difference – your radiator, your fan / shroud combo and your water pump. Any other change …

Miller Diversion 180 TIG Welder Review

For folks like me who learned to weld with a MIG welder, learning how to use a TIG welder was a daunting and downright unnerving experience. While MIG welders are generally quite forgivable and can lay down some strong welds, even in the hands of a novice, TIG however, was another animal – that is, until now. Miller has been …
