Bestop SuperTop CJ8

Summer approaches in Dallas, TX.  People are spending more time outside and the days are getting longer and hotter.  Sunny and hot may sound great to sun worshippers, but not so much if you are on a first name basis with the dermatologist.  It’s time to start thinking about protection from the glaring sun.  No more peeling burned skin off …

Mile Marker’s 10,500 lb. hydraulic winch

Electric versus Hydraulic…Hmmm…Nope, Not gonna do it. This debate rages on like locker versus posi, coil springs versus leaf springs. We will not be party to this competitive bashing, you can decide which is better. The Mile Marker Hydraulic winch has impressed me from the first day I saw one in use. Last spring I was fortunate enough to be …

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 …

Mittler Bros’ Deluxe Tubing Notcher

“Use the right tool for the job!” That’s what Master Sergeant Smythe used to scream at me during my 8-year stint in the armed forces. Of course it was followed by a few colorful superlatives, and his shrieking, gravely voice made that demand stick in my mind forever, which is what brings me to write this editorial about using the …

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 …

Bedrug bed liner – Chevy Silverado Install

At 4X4REVIEW, BedRug bed liners have adorned every truck that our staff have ever owned, and for good reason. Before we tell you why BedRugs are our first and only choice, let me tell you what the BedRug is not, and dispel any rumors floating around. It is not, and I repeat NOT a rug or a carpet. Although it …

Lowrance iWay 500C GPS System

Men hate asking for directions almost as much as we hate a visit to the dentist or nails on a chalk board. Asking for directions falls somewhere between visits from our mother-in-law and getting kicked in the… well, you know. It isn’t our fault, though. The gene for asking for directions disappeared long ago. Early nomadic tribes weren’t wandering the …

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 …

PSC Hydraulic Assist Steering

    When it’s time to hit the trail nothing is more important than a thorough inspection the night before or even days before. We should all be checking the obvious; oil, tires, nuts, bolts, safety gear, etc. But there are times that you just can’t catch everything, and you end up doing a trail repair or two. Still other …
