Rock, CalRocs, and King of the Hammers, so we know it will stand up to thetoughest terrain on earth. We are so sure that this is the best axle housing in the industry, weare backing it up with our world famous no questions asked warranty.
Figure (A): Deflection gaps in the Brand X seal are the result of the spring clip opening. Fluid is allowed to bypass the seal lip through these deflection gaps. The result is a leak.
Figure (B): The Trail Safe seal lip is totally supported by a garter spring. The spring applies constant force over 360º, not allowing any deflection gaps. This means no fluid leaks. Read More→

This exclusive axle design is the first in the industry to be released with all new parts. Our knuckle balls are forged from 1035 steel, making them much stronger than stock, eliminating closed or bent knuckle balls.
The axle tubes have been offset above the housing centerline, so the inner axles ride near the bottom of the axle tubes rather than in the center. The result is an increase of 3/8″ in ground clearance under the axle tubes. The axle tubes are made from 5/16″ thick 1020 DOM tubing with an outer diameter of 3″. Read More→
Trail-Gear understands when you have a link or even leaf sprung suspension, that during a vertical climb or decent, your suspension will unload making your truck less stable as the center of gravity becomes higher. Our answer to this problem is a small, easy to mount suspension winch that will allow you to stabilize your suspension and effectively control how much suspension droop you have during times when having that control makes all the difference.
Most competition buggies and hard core trail rigs have been using these suspension winches for years to get the job done, so Trail-Gear has decided to offer the Rock Recovery™ Suspension Winch 3000. It is compact, reliable, and easy to install. Everything about the Rock Recovery™ Suspension Winch 3000 is tailored so that installation is a snap. Read More→
Trail-Gear arrived on the lakebed almost a week before the big race to make their final tweaks and get the car fully dialed in. A 9th place finish at last year’s King of the Hammers proved that the 4-cylinder, Ecotec powered engine at the heart of the #17 Trail-Gear Godspeed buggy had what it took to be a contender at the toughest off road race in the world.
“I’ll drive fast enough to put that fire out.” Those were the words of Matt Messer, owner of Trail-Gear, regarding concerns of a potential fire if any race fuel were to spill onto the turbo during refueling in the pits. It was obvious that their only options were to win or break trying. Starting at the middle of the pack in 44th position meant having to reel in a large number of other racers to move into contention.

Rock Defense™ Tacoma Front Bumper – 120176-1-K
Rock Defense™ Tacoma Rear Bumper – 120153-1-K
Trail-Gear is proud to introduce the first of many Tacoma bumpers that we will be adding to our product line. The Rock Defense™ Tacoma Bumper will fit Tacoma’s from 94 1/2 to 2004. All Trail-Gear bumpers are constructed with 1.75″ x .120″ wall, 1035 DOM material. This bumper is a true “bolt on” product, no cutting or welding required.
Mounting holes on the winch plate are drilled for most 5000-9500 model low-profile winches and smaller sized 9.0R winches. For larger winches some minor trimming of the grill may be required. Bumper also features a 2″ receiver that will make a great anchor point for winch or strap recoveries.
Note: Turn signal and license plate mounting tabs are not included. Unpainted steel finish. Will not work with roller type fairlead, requires hawse type fairlead. Not intended for use with a body lift.
We all know that the stock pump on a 3.0 is just not enough to turn big tires or run a ram assist and when you try and drill out the inlet to get more volume the result is a loud pump followed by pump failure. A new Toyota stock pump puts out around 1,300 PSI at only one gallon per minute. Our Rock Assault™ Pumps put out 1,450 and 1,650 PSI at 4-4.5 GPM, which is more than enough volume to provide you with the steering power that you will need to turn big tires or run a ram assist or full hydraulic steering system.
Trail-Gear has handpicked each component in this kit to ensure quality, ease of installation, and durability. This kit ships complete with all parts included and full color installation instructions.
Application Notes: This pump and bracket is designed to fit all Toyota V6 3.0 Pickups and 4Runners from 1989-1995. This kit does not work with 3.0 Tacoma’s. This kit will not work on 4Runners with a functioning AC, because the AC cooling fan must be removed for the placement of the PS Pump cooler.
Trail-Gear knows that when it is time for a recovery that the last thing you need is a broken winch line, so we made our Rock Recovery™ Winch Line from 100% pure Dyneema Fiber (SK-75), which is the strongest and most UV resistant material in the world for synthetic winch lines. Our Rock Recovery™ Winch Lines come with a stainless steel thimble and are all pre-stretched, 12-strand braids. They also come with the first 5 feet covered with a black nylon sleeve to protect the line from rocks and trees.
Synthetic winch line is about 45% stronger than conventional steel cable and weighs only a fraction of what steel cable weighs. In fact, synthetic winch line is so light it floats on water. When steel cable winch line fails, breaks, or comes off of the attachment point it recoils from stored energy, snaps back, and can be deadly. There is almost no snap back at all with synthetic winch line because it does not store energy like the steel cable, this is why steel cable winch line is no longer permitted at most off road competitions or races. Synthetic winch line is very flexible, but does not curl or kink and will never cut your fingers.
