ARB Fridge/Freezer

Spend any amount of time wheeling with Scott Carline, owner of Axleboy Off-Road, and you’ll soon discover that, like most other people, this man likes his beverages kept cold.  Most wheeling trips, this is no problem.  There are plenty of gas stations and grocery stores that can keep up with Scott’s demand for ice, but, with plans to take his Jeep out on the Rubicon Trail for a few days, the inability to acquire ice would present a significant problem.

How to Keep it Cold

The dilemma was real, and the way we saw it, there were 3 options:  First, we could try to change Scott’s taste, to be more like Mike, who actually likes his drinks served at room temperature.  That option didn’t seem likely at all.  Our second suggestion was to pack a cooler right before hitting the trail, as usual, and hope that it would last the full three day trip.  Knowing that the cooler’s lid would be opening every 30-45 minutes (you think we’re kidding), there was no way a bag of ice could last throughout the entire trip.  Our third and final option was to look into portable refrigeration.  That’s where the ARB Fridge/Freezer comes into play.

The ARB Fridge Freezer

Scott and his Jeep spend a LOT of time on trails, so it made perfect sense to invest in this heavy duty, portable fridge.  A few of the features that really stood out to us are:

  • Three year warranty.
  • Forward facing thermostat control.
  • Deep storage capacity.
  • Able to operate at extreme angles without affecting operation or reliability.
  • Fully removable lid and basket for easy cleaning.
  • Internal LED cabinet light.
  • Interior drain plug.
  • Integrated battery protection system
  • Offered in a variety of sizes: 37 Qt, 50 Qt, 63 Qt & 80 Qt
  • and more.

The Right Option For You

We know that not everybody is into multi-day off-road trips, and like Mike, no everybody wants their beverages nice and cold.  For those of you that ARE and DO however, the ARB Fridge/Freezer is a pretty nice way to go!  If you’ve got questions about this setup or you want to see how it looks in the back of a Jeep, call or stop by Axleboy.  Our front counter crew is more than glad to get you the information you need, put together a price quote, and let you check out the product for yourself. We’re here for you! 636-939-5337

Factor 55 Closed System Winching

If you drive a Jeep, it’s likely that you’ve seen plenty of recovery videos on YouTube where something goes wrong.  While there will always be some element of risk involved with winch recovery, many of those risks can be minimized through exercise of safe winching practices and proper equipment.

In an effort to promote safer trail recovery, Axleboy Off-Road is excited to announce that they are partnering with Factor 55 Precision Engineering to deliver high quality closed-system winching solutions.

What is Closed System Winching?

Closed system winching is a winching technique that uses rigging comprised entirely of closed link hardware. With this system you can use your existing winch and cable/rope while replacing the hook with a Factor 55 winch-line shackle mount made from high-quality billet 6000 series aluminums and 6AL-4V Titanium.

Isn’t the Hook Good Enough?

People have been using hooks for a long time.  The common “clevis hook slip” that comes with most winches was originally designed and manufactured for use in commercial settings, to hoist heavy payloads secured by chain link.  In this setting, the hook has proven to be dependable largely due to the nature of the task.

For decades, off-road enthusiasts have taken this commercial tool and put it to alternative recreational use. Under such recovery type conditions, the hook is prone to failure because of the non-closeable opened end.  Even hooks with a safety latch cannot be considered a closed system because of the inherent weakness of the clasping mechanism.

Can the hook work? Yes! Will it work reliably? For that, there is no guarantee. The professionals at Axleboy Off-Road strongly suggest using a system that has proven to be safer, stronger and more secure.

Factor 55 Products are all Made in the USA & Trail Tested

Factor 55 PROLINK
  • Replaces conventional winch hooks with a safer more secure shackle/D-ring
  • Lightweight- Precision CNC machined 6000 series aluminum
  • No splicing required- titanium double sheer pin design
  • Designed for both steel cable and synthetic ropes
  • Integrated rubber boot for fairlead protection
  • Exceptional strength and quality
  • 3 sizes and 5 color options
Factor 55 FLATLINK
  • Foldable-1.75” thick (works will all fairlead license plate mounting brackets)
  • Prevents rattles- clinches neatly against both Hawse and roller fairleads
  • Increased approach angle
  • Replaces conventional winch hooks with a safer more secure shackle/D-ring
  • Lightweight- Precision CNC machined 6000 series aluminum
  • No splicing required- titanium double sheer pin design
  • Designed for both steel cable and synthetic ropes

 

For safer, stronger, more secure closed-system winching, stop by Axleboy Off-Road and pick up your Factor 55 PROLINK or FLATLINK today! For more technical information on closed system winching check out factor55.com or call Axleboy at 636-939-5337.

The Latest in Falcon Innovation

Have you seen the latest thing to come out of the Falcon Shocks factory? We’re not talking about the Falcon 3.4 series shocks, although we have to admit they are pretty awesome.  Think even better!

Back in 2007, Jeep rocked the way we experience trail life when they introduced the luxuriously comfortable Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.  Almost overnight, the aftermarket world stopped developing new ideas and products to fit the rugged TJ model and began focusing all their efforts on building up a new off-road champion.

Now, after more than a decade of innovation silence, Falcon Shocks is making enormous waves among TJ owners by introducing their latest, and quite possibly best, creation.  Check out the video below as Scott Carline, owner of Axleboy Off-Road, gets a shocking surprise!

Ready to get more performance out of your TJ while you embrace the trail life? Give us a call for pricing on a set of new Falcon Reservoir shocks! 636-939-5337

Big Plans for 2018

We are so excited for the limitless possibilities of the new year, and hope that you are too!

As many of you know, this time last year, Axleboy moved from a small industrial park location with cramped bays and poor lighting to a beautiful big shop with 15 service bays and enormous glass doors.  To make the year even better, we spent more time on the trail than in any other previous year, going to places like:

  • Moab- for Easter Jeep Safari with Teraflex Suspensions
  • Asymetric Solutions (Washita)- to wheel with MWJT and Camp Hope
  • Monkey Mountain  & Moonlight- for the Jeeping 101 course with MWJT
  • SMORR- for Chicks in the Sticks, Jeepstock ’17 and again with 618Jeeps
  • And several Jeep show ‘n shine events in both Missouri and Illinois

Less than a full week into the new year, and we’re already looking forward to LOADS of upcoming events and opportunities to hang out with other Jeepers and off-road enthusiasts.  A few typical places you can expect to find us include:

  • Our shop- We’re here from 8:am-6:pm M-F and we love to talk Jeep!
  • The Annual Chili Cookoff- Feb. 24th 11am-2pm, Right here at Axleboy
  • Intro to Off-road (Jeeping 101) with Midwest Jeepthing
  • Jeepstock- Every September at SMORR
  • and more

This year we’re looking forward to seeing even more trails as we get to know the Two Rivers Jeep Club at their 4×4 Safari and later make a special trip out to experience the legendary Rubicon.  Keep a lookout for Scott’s white JKU, and feel free to stop and say, “Hi” when you see us out and about.

Follow us on Facebook and/or Instagram to get a steady stream of fresh Jeep pictures and see the latest happenings in the shop.

The White Whale Goes GenRight

If you’ve ever been wheeling with Scott Carline, owner of Axleboy, it probably didn’t take long to notice that he doesn’t take any trail half-way.  If there’s an obstacle that other Jeepers are dodging out on, you can almost guarantee he’s the one that will put on a show and give it a shot.

With this mentality and driving style, protecting his Jeep is an investment Scott takes seriously, which is why “The White Whale” (his 2013 JKU) recently underwent another phase of transformations.  New to the Whale are GenRight aluminum fenders, rock sliders and an ultra low-profile front bumper.

Prior to this change, Scott’s Jeep was outfitted with aluminum fenders made by Nemesis Industries, an aluminum stubby bumper from Teraflex Suspensions and stock Rubicon rock rails.

Why the Sudden Change?

When asked about the reason behind his change in parts, Scott noted, “The Nemesis fenders have the best fit and finish I have EVER seen, but I’ve developed a habit of catching the lip on rocks and feeling bad about beating them up.” He further stated, “I’ve had my eye on the structural qualities of the tubular design for some time and feel like they might roll off things better.  As the only authorized GenRight installer/dealer in the area, it just made sense to give them a shot.”

As for the new side armor and rock guards, Scott was impressed by the replaceable steel “rash guard”, something that offers additional protection and reinforcement of the body armor.  “I haven’t seen any other manufacturers offer this,” says Scott, “And you can bet these rails will take some pretty hard hits.”

Changing the front bumper all comes down to two words, “approach angle.” “There was absolutely nothing wrong with the Teraflex bumper that I had before, but this new ultra slim bumper gives me nearly six inches of additional clearance in front.  That’s huge when you’re trying to pick your line to get up and over an obstacle,” says Scott.

Keep it Raw or Make it White?

The original vision behind The White Whale was to create a well-built Jeep with the classy look of a Sahara.  With the first round of modifications almost everything that went on it, first took a trip to the powder-coater to match the white body.

We asked Scott if he intended to do the same thing with the latest round of upgrades and he replied, “I was really tempted to do the same thing and white it out.  With the trend being to black out everything, I found that doing the complete opposite helped my Jeep stand out from the crowd and brought a lot of positive attention.  I priced out getting the new stuff powder coated too,” he says, “but impatience got the best of me and the bare aluminum look is really starting to grow on me, so I’ll probably leave it just the way it is.”

Check it out in Person

Those who follow Axleboy on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Google Plus…and even Pinterest) expect to see new pictures all throughout the day, highlighting work in progress, completed projects and a variety of off-road adventures…  But there’s nothing like seeing a product in person! “Any time you are in the area,” says Scott, “stop by and check out the Jeep in person.  Everybody here loves talking Jeep.”

Axleboy is located in O’Fallon Missouri, on the North side of I-70 (1935 E Terra Ln., O’Fallon, MO 63366).

Tuffy Security Products Available at Axleboy

All it took was one weekend trip into downtown St. Louis and Scott Carline, owner of Axleboy, started thinking about all the things on his Jeep that he would be remiss to have stolen: his ARB dual air compressor, a RIPP supercharger, countless tools, an expensive stereo and so much more.

Fortunately for him, nothing went missing during his brief stay, but the possibility still lingered in his mind and continued to trouble him.  by Monday morning, Scott felt so strongly about the lacking security on his Jeep and countless others that Axleboy placed an order for several lockable storage items from Tuffy Security Products™, including: glove boxes, under-seat concealed carry boxes, hood locks and several locking rear-deck enclosures.

All of these products are now on display and available for purchase in store.

 

 

Fun Info About Automotive Burglaries

According to the US Department of Justice, over 1.4 million vehicles were burglarized in 2010.    Among the items that burglars look for and steal are these are some of the most common:

  1. Money (Somebody’s gotta pay for my McD’s)
  2. Navigation Systems
  3. Mobil Devices (phones and tablets)
  4. Clothing
  5. Sunglasses
  6. Tools
  7. Vehicle Registration (If you’ve got a nice car, you probably have a nice home too)
  8. Backpacks and Briefcases
  9. CD’s (believe it or not people still use these)
  10. Car components (HID headlights, air bags, etc)

 

What can you do to protect your valuables?

With the typical burglary lasting no more than a few minutes, here are a few tips to help deter would-be thieves.

  1. Many of us Jeep owners have already learned (some the hard way) if you don’t want to lose something, it shouldn’t be left in the Jeep. The safest place for anything of value is behind a locked door…at home. Don’t bring it if you don’t need it.
  2. Don’t invite the burglar to take a closer look. Think of backpacks, suitcases, gift bags, charging cords and loose change as invitations. Would-be thieves see these things and immediately think, “I wonder what else is in there?”  Whenever possible keep these things locked up and out of sight.
  3. Park in areas with high traffic and visibility. Car burglars want to get in and out as quick as possible without drawing a lot of attention to themselves. Whenever possible, park in well-lit areas, close to building entry points.
  4. Lock your doors…unless you drive a Jeep with a soft-top. We hate seeing a perfectly good soft top get cut up, especially when the windows could just as easily be unzipped. For the Jeep crowd, we’d recommend getting a lockable glove-box, under-seat conceal carry box or a Tuffy™ locking deck enclosure. These minor upgrades can help make your sweet ride a secure one too.

 

If you’re in the market for lockable storage solutions for your Jeep, stop by Axleboy Off-Road in O’Fallon, Missouri or give us a call at 636-939-5337.

Axleboy Move-In Special (TJ & JK)

Remember what it was like to hop in your new Jeep and roll down the highway at 65-70 mph? Do you miss that feeling?  Would you like to recover that lost power?

Teaming Up With Yukon Gear & Axle

Axleboy is teaming up with Yukon Gear and Axle, today through the end of March 2017, to bring you a move-in special that will do exactly that for your JK, your TJ or both:

  • Recover Lost Power
  • Improve Fuel Mileage
  • Deliver Better Towing Capacity
  • Lower Your Crawl Ratio
  • Increase Engine Efficiency

What’s the Deal?

Starting at $1850*, Axleboy will regear both front and rear axles of your 1997-2017 Jeep Wrangler with premium Yukon gears, 4.10 (TJ only), 4.56 or 4.88.  This special includes:

  • Front and Rear Yukon Gear and Axle ring and pinions with master install kits
  • LubeLocker gaskets for both front and read differentials
  • 80/90 Break-in Oil
  • Gear-lube service in 500 miles with synthetic fluids
  • Axleboy’s 12 month/12,000 mile warranty

Thinking about stepping up your ratio to a 5.13? We’ve worked out  a special price for that too, starting at just $1950*.

What Are You Waiting For? Get Your Power Back!

Don’t wait too long, because this special is only going to run through 3/31/2017.  Call Axleboy today at 636-939-5337 to get answers to your questions and schedule service.

*Jeeps that currently have a 3.21 gear ratio will require an additional $101 to upgrade the carrier.  While the differential is apart, we highly recommend replacing axle bearings and seals.  We also recommend re-calibrating your speedometer and setting shift points soon after installing new gears.

Newer Bigger Location

Axleboy is pleased to announce that after 12 years of business, in the St. Peters area, they have relocated to a significantly larger and more accommodating facility only a few miles West.

On January 1, 2017, Scott Carline, owner and president of Axle Boy Enterprises, LLC dba Axleboy, received possession of the building and land located at 1935 E. Terra Ln. in O’Fallon, Missouri.  In the weeks that followed, extensive renovations began to reshape both the production and showroom areas, to bring them in line with OSHA and Axleboy standards.

Axleboy officially stopped all production on January 9, 2017 at the Ehlmann Rd. address so that larger equipment and computer systems could be moved to the new location.  Within the relatively short timeframe of one week, Axleboy was appropriately staffed and able to resume full service and production efforts on January 16, 2017.

As of January 20, 2017 Missouri’s self-proclaimed Jeep and off-road authority is open and operational with only minor cosmetic updates still in progress.

For all your Jeep, truck and off-road needs, call Axleboy at 636-939-5337 M-F 8:00am-6:00pm.
