AAM EcoTrac AAM introduces industry first EcoTrac (TM) Disconnecting All Wheel DriveDETROIT, MICHIGAN-December 19, 2013 - American Axle & Manufacturing (AAM) today announced the introduction of the automotive industry’s first disconnecting all-wheel-drive (AWD) system.  EcoTrac TM on the all-new 2014 Jeep® Cherokee.

AAM’s EcoTrac TM Disconnecting All Wheel Drive is a new approach to minimizing the effect of inertia and drag on a vehicle’s driveline system by disconnecting many of the rotating components from the driveline when they are not needed.  AAM’s EcoTrac TM disconnects at the power transfer unit (PTU) and the rear drive module (RDM) allowing  large portions of the driveline to discontinue rotating while in front-wheel drive.  These components include both the PTU and RDM hypoid gear sets, the bearings associated with the gear sets, and the driveshaft.  The result?  The benefits of an all-wheel-drive system without the sacrifice to fuel economy and emissions.  Read More→

2010 01 MetalCloakOverlineFenders1 300x225 MetalCloak’s Overlines™ for JK – Run 37’s with No LiftRancho Cordova, CA   January 18, 2011 MetalCloak has once again changed the game in the Jeep Tube Fender industry with the release of the Overline™ Tube Fenders with Quick Release Flares for the Jeep Wrangler JK and JK Unlimited. The term Overline refers to the unique mounting system that places the fender above, or over, the lines where the stock flares and typical tube fenders mount. Using a dynamic bracing system, MetalCloak’s incredibly strong fenders provide the most clearance and the best object deflection angle in the industry, giving wheelers the option of running 37” tires on a stock JK with no lift.  As for fitment, ease of installation and quality of manufacturing, for those who know MetalCloak’s well-earned reputation, they don’t disappoint, hugging the curves of the JK like they were meant to be.

Rusty’s 5.5 JK Wrangler Long Travel Kit

Monday, December 27th, 2010

2010 12 RustysOffroadJK1 300x224 Rustys 5.5 JK Wrangler Long Travel KitRainbow City, AL, 12/27/10 – Rusty’s new JK long travel kit is the result of many hours at the computer, in the shop and extensive testing. We use our proven radius arm system in the front as well as the rear, something we had used only on local custom vehicles. Now, Rusty’s JK system can be installed in most any garage and it does require welding. We spent countless hours developing our new long travel mounting brackets using our keyed and tabbed bracket technology. In simple terms the .250 thick brackets are laser cut and CNC formed. Once formed on the press brake, the keyed and tabbed technology bracket simply go together like a puzzle, this mean precision fit without the use of jigs. Read More→
