Drive Slug

Get rid of your selectable hubs the cheap way Using a steel plate cut down and drilled to the appropriate diameter and mounting surface, and weld a differential side gear to it to create your own at-home drive slug. This tip is intended for the external-style Dana 60 or Dana 44 axle and requires some fabrication skill. We've all seen the cheap, 15 lights at Wal-Mart and auto houses. Generally we advise staying away from the little importstyle lights, but we've found them to be incredibly useful...

Estled Off The Coast

Of North Carolina is a place of easy wheeling, cool ocean breezes, and a family-friendly atmosphere. Known by most of the locals as the North End, Freeman Park is one of the few remaining east coast beaches that allow seaside lovers to drive, camp, and shore-fish on the beach. To make it out onto the sand you'll simply need a four-wheel drive and a day or year pass. While it's not required, airing down makes the trek a bit easier. After spending some time on the island, we found that for many...

If You Cant Wheel Hit The Road

After last month's racing escapade, the Army Truck needed a power steering pump, the Red Sled is getting dismantled for parts allocation in an upcoming project, and Clampy busted both rear spring center pins the last time out. As a result, going wheeling would involve wrenching, and for some reason I just didn't feel like opening up the tool box or my wallet for required parts. I just needed a break from smog-encrusted Los Angeles for a few days. I needed a road trip. Like most of you, my boss...

Body protection is one the most important elements to keeping your weekend wheeler looking respectable in the corporate parking lot. Rock sliders are generally first on our list, as they are a wise investment. They act as body protectors, skids, and a step to help you get in and out. 3 Once you've tossed on a set of taller tires you'll likely need a new differential gear-set to match. Proper gearing is crucial for maintaining highway speeds and decent fuel economy. Be careful when selecting...

A The switch to a manual is threefold. For starters, you'll need the transmission, bellhousing, clutch, flywheel, and adapters to your transfer case. These can be had from Novak Adapters (877.602.1500, www.novak-adapt.com) and Advance Adapters (800.350.2223, www.advance adapters.com). Then you'll need the pedal assembly and clutch master and slave cylinder assembly. The pedals should come from a truck of the same era. The master and slave cylinder come from later-'80s, early-'90s GM trucks, but...

Road Or

How streetable a vehicle is depends on the vehicle, driver, road conditions, and highway patrol. We've had our Durango up to highway speeds, and although we think it's fine to drive down the road to your local wheeling spot, it's not exactly something we would like to drive cross-country. That's not to say the vehicle couldn't do it, but it would be slow and potentially expensive (depending on what state we're passing through). Does this mean that if you build a Rockwelled rig, you need to...

Special Tire Tread

I enjoy your mag but I have a question. In the May '09 issue on page 80 is a story about a jack (Hydra-Jacking). There is a really good photo of a good-looking tire on the Jeep. I have never seen this thread design before. Can you tell me the brand ROGERQUADE via 4wheeloffroad.com 0 Roger, that's one of our new favorites, the 31x10.50-15 Pit Bull directional Growler. And yes, there's no R in that designation because it's a bias-ply-wonder for wheeling. I've flat-towed it on Pete's Jeep for...

The 10 Lexus Rx450h Hybrid

ES, THIS SECTION IS DEDIcated to all you backyard wrenches with a hammer and stick trying to fix your 4x4 so you can go wheeling. Once upon a time your rig was a luxo-barge you couldn't afford. That's why we took a look at the super-cool Lexus RX450h hybrid. While the sticker on this gem is on the shy side of 45,000, you get a vehicle very capable for the moderate use it's intended for, along with a host of gee-whiz gad-getry that will someday become commonplace. You think that fuel injection...

Wrangler Halftop

Beaming sunshine warming your skin, water splashing in your face, and a cool breeze are all great if you're spending a day at the beach, but when these elements are part of your commute, then it might be time for a new soft top. While not having a top shouldn't keep you from wheeling your Jeep, we have to admit that the shade is pretty nice and protection from incoming mud bombs after hammering through a pit makes the drive home less crusty. When it comes to replacement tops, one company simply...

Double The Ford

QMy buddy has a '90 F-250 (which used to be 2WD) running Dana 50 and Sterling 10.5 axles from an '03 F-350. The truck has a V-8, a C6, a custom lift, and 42-inch TSLs. It will mainly be used for the mud but he has an itch to get into the rocks. So I showed him the way of the 203 205 doubler. The problem is finding a Ford NP203. We found you can get them remanufactured at a certain auto part store, but the Chevy units are plentiful. We have found the adapter for in place without feeling cramped....
