It’s that time of year. The time when hard working tax payers saunter out to their mail boxes, and find a tax bill rebate check waiting for them. If you’re lucky, and you happen to find it before your significant other, you can start plotting and planning on sinking the money into your rig. Here is the Top Ten items that made our Tax Refund Wish List:
If you don’t already own one, then buy it today. Only a tool goes off road without decent first aid and recovery gear kits.
Invest in parts that will earn an extra return. Cold Air Intakes and Performance Filters increase horsepower and fuel economy, and put money back where it belongs: in your wallet.
A nice GPS with both Road and Topo maps will cost around $150-400. With it you can record your favorite trails, find the next peak and keep from getting lost.
Nothing is worse than a day on the trail in a worn out seat… it is like every rock is personally kicking you in the seat of your pants. Replace your worn and weathered seats with a set custom made for off-road use for a difference you can feel.
Don’t let night fall on your adventure. Create your own daylight long after the sun has gone down. From ultra bright HIDs to traditional halogen lights, there is a light kit to fit your budget.
Don’t let your battery die during your next recovery operation. A dual battery tray gives you extra piece of mind, and two batteries to power all your accessories.
You can pick up a heavy duty 8500 LB winch for less than $350 bucks, or you can fork over the same amount to Hillbilly & Son’s Wrecker Service the next time you get stuck.
It’s the only bumper system that allows you to pick and choose from a series of interchangeable components to build the bumper of your choice.
Let’s face it: Its not a Jeep until its lifted.
It may not be cost effective to drive your Jeep across the county, but for just a few hundred dollars you can rent a Jeep in places like Moab, Telluride, Hawaii or Costa Rica.

Its that time a year again. A time when goodhearted young men take a stab at a block of wood and try to turn it into a sleek racer. Boy Scouts everywhere compete to build cars from blocks of wood and are awarded for their speed and creative design. Of course the real fun happens when these same young men turn to their adult roles models in search of guidance. Experience has taught us to push the envelope of design (aka cheat) and we gladly impart this wisdom to our children, and bonding then occurs.
Since a Jeep is essentially an aerodynamic brick the folks over at Rugged Ridge had a head start into turning their block of wood into a stylish racer. Their team of engineers fashioned a scale CJ8 Scrambler complete with: Fender Flares, Mirrors, Off Road Lights, Jerry Can, Hi Lift Jack, Tube Steps and Spare Tire Carrier from their pine block.
How did it fare? When Rugged Ridge turned their Jeep over to the young racer, they had hopes of only scoring a trophy in the Pine Wood Derby Car Show. However, the wooden model was apparently more aerodynamic than its larger counterparts and scored 3rd in the races.

Suwanee, GA –For years Alloy USA has been the predominant supplier of Chromoly axles for off road enthusiasts looking to increase their axle strength and spline count. Now Alloy USA is using this same great forging technology to produce 4140 Chromoly axles in stock spline counts. Built with the occasional off-roader in mind, these great axles offer unparalleled strength both on and off road, but without the added expense of having to upgrade to a 30-spline differential. High tensile strength 4140 Chromoly is heat-treated twice and induction hardened to produce these heavy-duty axles that are up to 35% stronger than stock 1040 axles. The shafts are then precision CNC machined and magnaflux inspected for cracks before receiving a slick black anodized finish. Each axle shaft is backed by Alloy USA’s exclusive ten-year warranty! Our axle shaft kits include everything you need to complete the job: both passenger and drive side axle shafts, seals, bearings and wheel studs.
Wheel with confidence with newly expanded warranty coverage from Rugged Ridge, Omix-ADA and Alloy USA!
