7075 LockNLoad HiRes Media 220x123 MetalCloak Takes the Bind out of Radius Suspension Systems with the Patent Pending Lock n LoadRancho Cordova, CA - Take the bind out of the radius arm suspension and add additional safety features with The MetalCloak “Lock-n-Load” (Patent Pending ID# 14/469,438)!  The unique design of the passenger side replacement Lock-n-Load control arm allows you to “lock” the control arm in a static “solid” state for added on-road safety and lively road handling.  “Load” the arm to unleash the capabilities of your radius arm suspension – reducing bushing and bracket load like a 3-link but with the added safety of four attachment points at the axle! How? When “loaded” the arm compresses and expands to compensate for control arm length change. Combined with MetalCloak’s patent pending Duroflex vibration dampening bushing, the Lock-n-Load gives you maximum ride quality.  “Lock-it” or “Load-it” – get the bind-free flex you have dreamed of for off-road AND the added stability on-road with just a few twists! MetalCloak, it’s Your Jeep, Only Better.  Information: MetalCloak, 916-631-8071, www.MetalCloak.com

Monday, September 29th, 2014

Nitto’s new Terra Grappler G2 all-terrain light truck and SUV tire delivers balanced on-road and off-road performance with a compelling mileage warranty.

12 220x169 Nitto Terra Grappler G2 All Terrain TireCypress, Calif. (September 23, 2014) – Ask any enthusiast what they want out of a tire and the answer you get is almost always proceeded by the word “more” – more traction, more stability, more sound abatement, more tread life, and more style. Nitto Tire U.S.A. Inc., a leading manufacturer of off-road and street performance tires, has listened to enthusiasts and announced the evolution of the company’s flagship light truck and SUV tire – the Terra Grappler G2. Available in both OE-replacement and plus-size fitments, the G2 was engineered to balance enthusiasts’ all-around performance demands with unprecedented treadwear.

Although the G2 visually resembles the original Terra Grappler, the tire has been re-engineered inside and out. The Terra Grappler G2 uses a new rubber compound that’s unique in Nitto’s current Grappler line which significantly improves treadwear. In fact, Nitto’s limited treadwear warranty for the Terra Grappler G2 covers 50,000 miles for LT-metric and floatation sizes and an eyebrow-raising 65,000 miles for hard-metric sizes. Read More→

FITS ALUMINUM & STEEL SUSPENSION MODELS

4 220x132 ICON 2007 UP GM 1500 Suspension SystemsICON Vehicle Dynamics’ 2007-UP GM 1500 1-3” suspension systems are designed to dramatically increase the on and off-road ride quality of Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups.

After this initial step, an array of products including coilovers, rear shocks, and upper control arms were developed and put to the test in varying terrain and extreme conditions. Once these products had seen many miles of on and off-road abuse without failure, they were organized into several stages that deliver unique levels of performance to the vehicle. Read More→

ICON 2005-UP Toyota Hilux Suspension Systems

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

5ea8daf9 791d 4873 b522 507a0b13fbdc 220x146 ICON 2005 UP Toyota Hilux Suspension SystemsAlthough many think the Hilux is more or less similar to a Tacoma it is, in fact, a very different vehicle. The frame is very stout, and the rear suspension is designed for quite a bit more load and service than a Tacoma. These differences prompted an approach to this international chassis that was quite different than the USDM counterpart. In standard fashion, ICON engineers took an all-encompassing approach and addressed the Hilux’s suspension as a whole rather than focusing on one particular component. The result of this is a dramatic increase in wheel travel and damping ability, translating into outstanding vehicle control and ride quality both on and off-road. Read More→
