The Latest Parts For Your 4x4

Super Dyna Duty
The first company to offer a locking hub conversion for unitbearing applications, Dynatrac now announces its Free-Spin hub conversion kit for 2014 Ford Super Duty applications. Unlike imported imitations, the Dynatrac Free-Spin kit is the only 100 percent USA-made hub conversion available. All Dynatrac kits include heat-treated chromoly spindles, top-quality bearings and seals, 35-spline 1.50-inch chromoly outer shafts, wheel hubs, locking hubs (Dynatrac DynaLoc or Warn), and all necessary ABS components, studs, and hardware. Dynatrac Free-Spin kits are now available for 1994-2013 Dodge 2500/3500 and 1999-2014 Ford F-250/F-350 trucks. As an added feature, when Dynatrac DynaLoc hubs are used, the Free-Spin kit offers the shortest hub stick-out length on the market, keeping them tucked inside your wheel better than any competitors’ kit.

Early Bronco Wipers
Got a 1966-1977 Ford Bronco? Wipers suck? The answer is probably yes. Why else would New Port Engineering come up with its Clean Wipe system? The system comes complete with everything needed and features a heavy-duty two-speed wiper motor, oilite bronze-bushed wiper transmissions, complete linkage, linkage covers, wiring harness, switch, and polished stainless steel wiper arms with blades. Just remove the old wiper motor, linkages, and transmissions and bolt the Clean Wipe system right in. You can upgrade to intermittent delay by purchasing the company’s intermittent delay switch.

JK Odd-Fire Inertia
This product was actually Editor Hazel’s idea. Noticing a distinct propensity for the JK’s 3.8L to stall when lugged down during off-roading, he asked Centerforce to develop an inertia flywheel similar in spec to that of the legendary Buick 225 found in 1966-1971 CJs, which could be lugged down as low as 150 rpm. The result is the Centerforce High Inertia Billet Steel Flywheel for 2007-2011 Jeeps with the six-cylinder 3.8L engine. The high-inertia design will help the engine resist stalling on-road and maintain speed off-road. This new flywheel replaces the OE 33-pound flywheel with a higher-quality 50-pound billet steel flywheel, designed for a direct bolt-on replacement. The High Inertia Billet Steel Flywheels are CAD/CAM designed and then CNC machined for a perfect fit and hassle-free, bolt-in performance.

Hot Can
Campfire In A Can makes it easy to have a campfire…in a can. The perfect blend of durability, size, and ease of use make this the most unique and effective campfire for camping, backyard, beach, and everywhere in between. It burns wood, charcoal, and fire logs in a vertical burn chamber. The fuel is strategically positioned using burner inserts and burned in the upright position. The unique burner design allows all the elements that make a great fire to come together to produce a good old-fashioned, roaring campfire. The canister and base design allows the fire to be quickly and safely extinguished by placing the canister over the base. When the canister is snapped down, the fire goes out and no smoke or debris can escape. Once cool, the compact size makes it easy to store and transport.

Razor Soft
No, Four Wheeler isn’t going to start doing a bunch of Polaris RZR coverage. However, when we saw the new Door Bag with knee pad and arm rest from PRP Seats designed for PRP’s aftermarket RZR doors, we recognized they might be a cool product for many of you building your own custom tube doors. The bags feature black carbon-fiber vinyl for style and coated nylon sides and back for durability. They’re available for driver or passenger side with carbon-fiber black, red, or orange piping and retail for $85 each.
