404 Portal Boxes
74 Weld Desert Products 404 portal boxes are designed to be a strength- and weight-saving upgrade for rigs equipped with Mercedes-Benz Unimog 404 axles.

Swift Driver
Master Mechanic’s Swift Driver is a ratcheting-style screwdriver that is crafted to help speed up your work. Since the Swift Driver uses a bearing and sleeve design, it doesn’t have to reverse itself first before going forward. By holding the collar and twisting the handle back and forth, you make the Swift Driver continually drive in the same direction with twice the driving efficiency. The 29-piece driver tool is available exclusively at True Value stores.
