Nitro Xtreme Diff Covers for Semi Float Landcruiser!

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

Nitro Xtreme Diff covers for Semi Float Landcruiser! Now in stock!

As many of you know the factory stamped diff cover on the Toyota Landcruiser 9.5″ semi-float rear end is little to be desired. They are thin, rust easily and don’t adequately protect your expensive diff parts from damage. Since these are sort of the oddballs, none of the common sources make a diff cover for them. Read More→

Anyone can buy new tires and new wheels, install them on their rig, and give a glowing review about how well the tires hook up and how pretty the wheels look…but the real test of a product is how well it survives hard long-term use.  I’ve put a set of 39 x14.5-17 Pitbull Maddog LT Bias Tires and 17×9 TrailReady HD Aluminum beadlock wheels thru 18 months of hard trails and offroad abuse, and it’s finally time to brag.

Right Channel Radio CB Installation

Sunday, December 14th, 2008

‘Hey, who’s the driver of that tan FJ40?’


‘uummm….hello? Anyone know which way to turn at the intersection? ANYone??’

How many times have you been ‘that guy’ on the trail ride? I have a few times…and it isn’t fun. The problem? The rig ahead of you is responsible for you making correct turns and helping get you unstuck…but many of us forget to check our mirrors when we trail ride. So, now the responsibility becomes yours: communication. Is your CB in good condition? Is it TUNED? Or, like many, should you just stick your head out the window and yell because you’ve neglected to install a CB and instead dropped $1000 on tires and wheels that STILL left you stuck on the trail? has the solution for us… Read More→

Roundeyes Conversion Headlamps

Tuesday, November 14th, 2006

I don’t know about you, but I’m notorious for my ability to break accessories on my rig…as much as I slide the cage/body on rocks and trees and as often as I flop or roll the rig, anything bolted on the outside is a candidate for replacement. Mirrors and auxiliary lights are no exception…and frankly, replacing even cheap floodlights gets expensive. I’ve also run some junk aftermarket headlamp replacements…JC Whitney offers a couple, but they filled with haze and rusted so quickly that they were ineffective after a year. And as we all know, the “off the shelf” halogen light is sufficient for lighting the shop, but not so great when you are on a deserted stretch of road or on the trail trying to see what’s coming ahead. Finally, I came across the Roundeyes 7″ Toyota Conversion Headlamps. Read More→

While my wish list tends to drive my wife crazy, sometimes you have to take the plunge and take a chance.  Pitbull Rockers are new on the market, and turned out to be an excellent choice. Read More→
