You can thank Mike Rowe for this new column. Well, not Mike directly. He didn’t come knock on our office door and say, “hey, 4-Wheel & Off-Road, how’s that new special series that salutes American companies hiring, supporting, and manufacturing in America to keep American jobs in America going? Done yet? Tick, tock. America!” But you can thank the mikeroweWorks Foundation’s Profoundly Disconnected Campaign, which was established to challenge the belief that the only path to success is through a four-year college degree, for championing a call to action in resurrecting American industrial might. The campaign’s website,, strives to highlight the growing skills gap in our country. After all, how many unicycle-riding, mustache-waxing baristas does this country need? But welders and founders and carpenters and doers and makers? Yeah, more of those is definitely something to celebrate. So, in this first installment we proudly highlight the preeminent manufacture of high-quality automotive axleshafts and drivetrain components, RCV Performance.
