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.

Rock Assault™ 3.0L V6 Power Steering Pump Kit

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

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.

Rock Recovery™ Winch Line

Friday, August 27th, 2010

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.

Tacoma Rear Frame Reinforcement plates

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010

1995-2004 Tacomas have c-channel frames that are notorious for bending and cracking. The c-channel frame also contributes to axle wrap and wheel hoop at the rear axle. Toyota’s answer to this issue was to box in and reinforce the frame on the newer 05-09 Tacoma’s and FJ Cruisers. Our solution is our Taco Rear Frame Reinforcement Plates.

This kit will help you avoid costly frame repairs and give your frame more strength, fixing many of the issues a c-channel frame causes while offroading. The kit comes complete with frame plates for both the left and right side. The kit is shipped unpainted and some modifications will be necessary when using this kit with a double cab.

Fits 95-04 Standard or Extra Cab.
