Off-Road Hardware

Roll Your Own Way

Rough Country’s new wheel adapters and spacers for the Jeep JK and Dodge eight-lug pickups solve wheel problems and add appeal to these already-popular vehicles.

• The Jeep JK wheel adapters add 1.5 inches of width per side for added stability and lateral tire clearance. They adapt the bolt pattern from the 5-on-5 stock JK pattern to a 5-on-4.5-inch bolt pattern, letting you use stock Jeep wheels from older models such as the TJ, XJ, and YJ.
• The Dodge 8-lug wheel spacers add with, stability, and gain lateral clearance between the tires, wheels, and suspension. Both styles of adapters are made from 6061-T6 aluminum for long-lasting good looks.

Rev Wheel’s Guillotine

Rev Wheel’s new 845 “Guillotine” wheels are part of the Rev Wheel K.O. line, aluminum wheels inspired by the athletes of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

• Not wimpy lightweights, these are burly wheels worthy of their billing
• Matte black finish with bolt accents, they’re available in 17x9 and 20x9 sizes. Offsets for the Guillotine are 0mm, +12mm, and +20mm. Bolt patterns range between 5-on-4-1/2 to 8-on-180mm

Almost as Good as a K&N Filter

If you’ve never seen a Sledster before, that’s because it’s a concept vehicle built in limited quantity exclusively as a die-cast collectible. Only 96 of these were made, so if you need one gracing your desk, shelves, or trophy case, contact Custom Crew posthaste.

• About 1:50th scale, this concept vehicle features real rolling wheels and a metal body and chassis
• Comes with an oversized acrylic display case featuring a mirrored base. K&N graphics abound.

Affordable Bender Upgrade

Power-actuated tube benders are easier to use, more accurate, more portable, and more powerful than their manually-operated counterparts. Why don’t more of us use them? Cost. Until now, purchasing the pneumatic ram and pump easily exceeded $500. Swag Off-Road has found an affordable air/hydraulic ram sold by Harbor Freight and designed high-quality tubing bender conversion brackets around it. Slick, easy, and most of all, affordable.

• Fits JD2 Model 3, JD2 Model 32, Pro Tools 105, Pro Tools 105 HD, and JMR manual tubing benders. Sold in both welded or unwelded versions. Buy the unwelded version and weld it yourself to save even more cash.
• The hydraulic ram is listed on Swag Off Road’s website, but is sold separately through Harbor Freight Tools. The Swag conversion brackets and Harbor Freight air/hydraulic ram combine in a bender that’s capable of bending 2-inch-diameter, 0.250-wall DOM tubing with ease.
