New Upgrades Available for the JL Wrangler

As manufacturers of the world’s premier selectable lockers, ARB recently issued the following press release, regarding new parts available for the 2018 Jeep Wrangler (JL) Sport:

ARB maintains a strong presence in the off roading industry with its proactive approach in R&D. Supporting accessories alongside new vehicle releases is key to staying ahead of the game. Our drivetrain engineers have assessed Jeep’s new Wrangler JL Sport and are proud to announce the release of Air Locker applications for both the front and rear axles.

Replacing the JK, Jeep has built on the Wrangler’s legendary history with their most capable vehicle to date, while maintaining its heritage with touches such as a seven-slot grille, iconic round headlights and open air models. To complement these unique touches, Jeep has upgraded the off road ability and central to this is next-generation Dana axles. To further enhance the JL Sport’s capability off road, ARB is happy to release front and rear locker applications.

  • For the rear axle M200 application, RD244 was newly developed.
  • For the front axle application, existing RD100 will suit.
  • Please note some Wrangler JL Sport models come with M220 axle housing. Please verify before ordering RD244 Air Locker

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

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

GenRight Off Road Products

Axleboy is honored to announce that we are now an authorized seller and installer of  GenRight Off-Road products.

RBB-8220.1

 

A few days ago we received a call from Taylor at GenRight Off Road, a California based company that specializes in creating innovative, high-quality products for the true off-road enthusiast.

 

After a casual conversation about Axleboy and GenRight, comparing policies, quality standards, business goals, and our mutual passion for the off-road lifestyle, Taylor dropped the big question: “Are you interested in being our exclusive authorized dealer and installer for the state of Missouri?

 

Our jaws dropped at the surprise and for a moment there was utter silence.

 

Having seen firsthand GenRight’s attention to detail and quality performance, of course we gladly accepted.

 

Whether you’re the type of Jeeper who spends more time driving through creek beds and over mountainsides or you simply want superior quality off-road parts on your Jeep, check out the full GenRight product line and give us a call to get your next project going.

New Product From ARB

OME is pleased to release a new range of adjustable control arms with Max C Dual Durometer bushes for the JK Wrangler.

Adjustable control arms are perfect for those Jeep owners who want to customize caster and pinion angles to fine tune ride and handling for both on and off-road applications.  All arms have been shot peened, zinc electroplated and powder coated to prevent corrosion.

 

Max C Bushes:

MAX-C is a Dual Durometer composite bushing engineered for optimal ride quality and off-road durability in heavy duty applications.

The MAX-C is constructed of multiple urethane compounds and materials to deliver significant dampening and elastic characteristics that enable the joint to perform in a more linear torsional spring rate. The Free Pivot design eliminates pre-mature bushing failures from twisting loads particularly on long travel suspension arms or track bars and is ideal for heavy duty off-road performance. Synthetic Elastomer formulation consistently recovers to co-centric position effectively Self Centring the joint. Reinforcement Tube redistributes load evenly throughout the cushion and prevents contaminants entry into the joint by effectively minimizing gaping of the hole during misalignment configuration.
