Steve Sasaki at Advanced Air Systems was not satisfied having the quickest tire fill up times in the west, so he went and improved them. Advanced Air Systems has released their new SuperFlow HP Regulator for the Power Tank.
4Crawler Offroad's 2Air / 4Air System
Roger Brown of 4Crawler Offroad has devised an ingenious system for quickly airing multiple tires up and down simultaneously, while equalizing pressure in all tires. The 2Air / 4Air systems can be a great addition to any 4-wheeler's toolbag, and other uses are likely to be found for the system as well.
Winch Weight Winch Weight
Everyone who uses a winch should already know to throw something soft and heavy over the wire rope before making a heavy winch pull. In event of the wire rope's failure, the inertia of the weight will help counter the kinetic energy stored in the stretched winch line. The downside to this safety precaution is that it usually makes for a very dirty -- or possibly even ruined -- jacket or blanket. The new Winch Weight can be easily stored and quickly deployed to make all winch pulls safer.
Increase your winch saftey Winch Hook: A tool to increase winch saftey
I never like to wear gloves around pinch hazards like winches, but I always like to wear gloves around puncture hazards like winch lines! This Minute Mod should help to alleviate that dilemma by giving you a tool to control the wire rope from just enough distance so you will not have your fingers pulled into the winch or your hand punctured by any frayed strands of wire.
tsw.3.jpg Work Bench/Tool Storage Chest
Have you ever noticed how thin and flimsy most tool chests and work benches are that you buy from the market? Not to mention the cost of these light weight units! I was in need of a storage chest big enough to hold my handtools and a welding bench strong enough to withstand the rigors of some serious fabrication and pounding.... I needed all of this without the cost normally associated with a unit this big.
Century 131 Cordless Wire Feed Welder
If you are looking for a welder that can be used for serious trail repairs, is truly portable, and requires no installation on your vehicle, this is your welder. Better yet, the Century 131 is less expensive than most other options that are available for a trail vehicle.
tn_Dcp01966.jpg Extreme Outback Products Black Rat Recovery Kit
While a winch (be it an electric or "people-powered") is a great recovery tool, without the proper ancillary equipment, the use of a winch has the potential to cause damage to trees, property and even humans. Using the proper equipment not only protects trees, property and humans, it results in a more efficient use of the winch, and puts less stress on other equipment such as bumpers, receiver hitches and tow hooks.
tn_Dcp02021.jpg Extreme Outback Products Recovery Hand Winch
This hand winch is a small, portable and lightweight unit designed for self recovery situations, stabilizing a tipsy rig, or any number of applications where an extra cable is required.
Kilby Enterprise York Kits
The engine driven York compressor is the probably best package for on-board air. Brad Kilby Enterprises sells kits for 1987 to Present Wranglers along with some Cherokee Kits. There are different kits for applications with A/C and those without. The York compressor is able to produce 5 CFM and up depending on the Rpm's of the engine, making it one of the quickest ways to air up at the end of the trail.
Save Your Skin: Mechanix Wear Gloves
Have you ever had to work on your engine while it was still hot? Or perhaps your trying to remove a suborn bolt and it lets loose unexpectedly. Then try some Mechanix Gloves.
Big Red Air Compressor Big 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 buddies tires).
ArboTec Ultra Lube
Like every other off-roader, I am constantly maintaining my rig. A big part of this is making sure that everyhing is well lubricated and that the lubricant has not been contaminated by water, mud, dust or dirt. ArboTec's Ultra Lube can make changing fluids a breeze.
Choker Chain Tricks
A solid length of choker chain comes in handy almost on almost every trail ride. Examples include rigging a tow without tow hooks, winching with a Hi-Lift jack, or using it as a clamp.
