JK Smart Straps

Door straps don't last forever. When yours wear out, replace them with something smarter and better than the original. Enter JK Smart Straps from Star Fabricating.

  • Easy installation does not require removing the factory door panel, and does not require replacing the factory wiring harness. Available for 2007-and-newer Jeep JK models, both two- and four-door
  • Stronger than factory door straps, and allows front door to open slightly further than factory. Sold in pairs; specify front or rear doors

Know It's Locked
Toyota's electric locking differentials for the Tacoma and the high-pinion FJ-80 axles are typical Toyota: reliable. Even so, they require wires to actuate them, which are skinny and vulnerable. Chilkat Designs offers the E-Racer, a cable actuator for the Toyota electric locking differentials.

  • Heavy-duty cables are stronger than wires every time, and the E-Racer is made in the USA.
  • Replaces the electric actuating mechanism. Your selectable Toyota locker is now cable-actuated via a convenient cab-mounted lever. Those who have completed a solid axle swap using leaf spring suspension will be glad to know the E-Racer is compatible with front leaf springs

Warrior Cargo Net
Backcountry trips require a lot of gear. Gear floats around if it's not secured. The Warrior Cargo Net holds your stuff down, yet allows easy access when you need it.

  • Made from 2-inch polypropylene webbing: UV and mildew resistant
  • Installs into the cargo area of four-door JK Wranglers. Install horizontally over the top of your cargo, or install vertically to function as a divider or pet barrier
  • No JK? No problem! Safari Straps offers many other products including nets for universal applications
