Rockdogz Jeep on the Moab Rim Trail. Easter
Jeep Safari, 2000
I started this project several years ago. The first upgrades included a
Rancho 2.5 inch lift, Con-fer extended lift shackles, 1-inch body lift and a
Lockright locker for the rear Dana 35. Over the years, the suspension has
been changed out to include a Rubicon Express 4-inch lift, the rear differential
has had the Super 35 kit installed and recently upgraded to their Super 35
Detroit kit. Other additions included a front locker, Warn XD9000i winch,
custom rear bumper, custom TJ front bumper, 4.88 gears, Canyon City swing out
tire carrier, KC Daylighter lights, rock lights, Durabak bed liner, Full
Traction Suspension Shackle Reversal, and the modification I'm most proud of, my YJ Dash
Conversion. Other items include the installation of a set of TJ flares and
a customized flat fender look. I also installed a Tera 4:1 kit and an in
cab winch remote.

Most of us have been there before. We're out on the trail and due to the hot weather, the pace of the trail, or some internal mechanism, we start to overheat. For us mortal folk, that's generally not that big of a deal, we simply drink some cool liquids, sit in front of the air conditioner or sit in the shade and cool down. But when that overheating is in your trail rig, cooling down isn't necessarily so easy to do.
TeraLow 4:1 kit in a NP231 Transfer case Installing lower gears will help your crawl
ratio, but often times sacrificing highway performance. Installing a 4:1 kit
will give your rig a much lower crawl ratio while retaining some of its on-road
Installing a set of TJ Flares on a YJ
Installing larger tires usually results in your tires rubbing and scraping
your stock fender flares as the tire gets stuffed up into the fender well.
The solution? Install a set of TJ flares. TJ flares are larger
and wider than stock YJ flares, thus increasing your tire clearance and
overall tire coverage.
YJ Dash Upgrade
The elegant lines of a CJ dash. Simple, uncluttered and no-nonsense.
That's how I wanted the dash in my 1991 Wrangler to be. But the
stock YJ dash is anything but that. Installing Dave's Off-Road laser
cut steel dash in my YJ gave me the look I wanted.

Axle & Gear's New Super 4.88 Gears
Superior Axle & Gear has finally introduced their new 4.88 gears for the AMC
Model 20, Dana 30 (standard and reverse rotation) and the Dana 35. You are no
longer limited to 4.56 gears. The additional 7% torque multiplication
roughly makes up the difference between 33-in and 35-in tires. If you plan
on running bigger meats, then check out these new gears!
Red Air Compressor A large contact area increases your tire's traction
holding capabilities, especially in rocks, snow and sand. But all too
often, people don't deflate their tires simply because they don't have a
way to reinflate them once they've completed the trail. The solution? A
portable 12 volt air compressor that lets you inflate your tires (and your
Teraflex 2Low231 Kit
This kit will free up the front axle for better steering while keeping your low range. Now
you can choose between either 4 Low or 2 Low. The
2Low231 kit provides a mechanical disconnect for the front and rear output shafts while in
the neutral shift position, thus allowing for a "true neutral".
3/4 Elliptical Suspension for Jeep Wranglers
We all want more flex and articulation from our 4x4s.
Some of us go to great lengths to increase the amount of
flex and wheel travel from our trail rigs. A 3/4 elliptical suspension
conversion on a leaf sprung Wrangler is a simple, yet effective modification
that allows for more rear wheel travel and articulation at a low cost.
Garvin Industries Expedition Rack for Jeeps
Jeeps are great, but you just never have enough space in one to take everything
you need on long trips or trails, The new Garvin Industries Expedition Rack for
Wranglers & CJs provides some much needed extra storage space for these Jeeps.
