The Latest Goodies For Your Rig

Trail-Gear’s differential armor
this is designed to fend off marauding rocks that would otherwise leave you stranded. It’s available for front and rear Suzuki Samurai axles, Toyota Tacoma rear axles, and Toyota FJ Cruiser rear axles. Installation requires simple welding. Shipped in raw steel; paint after welding.

  • Samurai armor is crafted from 3/16-inch-thick A36 steel. It’s precision–laser-cut and CNC-formed for an ideal fit
  • Tacoma and FJ Cruiser armor is made from 1/4-inch-thick A36 steel. Like the Samurai armor, it’s precision–laser-cut and CNC-formed, making fit-up and welding a breeze. The Tacoma version fits 1995-to-2004 Tacomas and 2000-to-2006 Tundra pickups. Does not fit axles equipped with the factory E-locker. The FJ Cruiser version fits 2007-to-current FJs, 2003-and-newer 4Runners, and 2005-and-newer Tacomas

Bestop’s PowerBoards
They have always been a great way to ease egress and ingress for taller-than-stock vehicles. Installation is now easier than ever, thanks to Bestop’s new WiFi actuation system. Meet the new PowerBoard NX.

  • System is installed without removing kick panels, kick plates, door panels, or carpet
  • Sensors operate independent of other vehicle control systems. There is no tapping into the vehicle’s wiring harness
