Off-Road Hardware

Bubba Rope Life Guard

Bubba Rope is a tongue-in-cheek name, but the quality is dead serious. Bubba recovery ropes are tough items, but the folks behind the ropes have found that most rope failures are the result of cuts and abrasions from rocks, trees, and even vehicles’ surfaces such as bumpers. The Bubba Rope Life Guard protects your Bubba Rope and lets you pull your stuck buddies to safety.

  • Made from Kevlar, the same stuff used for body armor
  • Life Guards are custom-sized to fit each size of Bubba Rope

Chevy consistently offers outstanding engine performance, and Chevy’s new LS376/525 crate motor lets enthusiasts driving all brands take advantage of the Bow Tie’s engine expertise. Chevy engine in a Ford? We’ve seen it and it works well.

Total Chaos Boxed Tacoma LCAs

Of course, you know that LCA stands for lower control arm, right? Total Chaos now offers a boxed lower control arm option with its long travel kit for the ’96-to-’04 six-lug Tacoma. The boxed lower arms are compatible with hydraulic bumpstops and are stronger than the original tube-and-plate lower arms. Even though boxed LCAs are stronger, there is still sound logic behind the original-style lower arms, and that’s why Total Chaos offers both styles. Contact Total Chaos Fabrication to discuss what’s best for you and your Tacoma.

  • Fits the ’96-to-’04 six-lug Tacoma, ’96-to-’02 4Runner, and ’96-to-’02 Prado 90. Two-stage powdercoat process gives a long-lasting finish
  • Mounting tabs for dual 2.5-inch shocks are welded on. Specify your exact vehicle model and brand of shocks at time of order. Shocks are not included
