Trail Access Grant: Dirt Minions 4×4 update

The Rugged Ridge Trail Access Program was first announced at the 2013 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Since then, it has awarded grants to a number of non-profit off-road organizations, including Dirt Minions 4×4 from Oregon.

Since receiving the grant late last year the organization has made great progress with the Ladee Flats OHV for their trail. They’ve upgraded two existing trails from easy to moderate trails with multiple single black diamond sections. A large clean up event that brought out 105 volunteers started the efforts removing 4600 lbs of trash from the OHV, from there numerous changes begun.

Several features have been added such as boulders to 4 separate optional crawl sections and clearing brush to opening a large natural rock ledge for climbing. Rail style fencing has been added to keep people on the trails and off the nature areas surrounding. Added water management to miles of trail that were unsustainable due to muddy conditions helped tremendously for the wet season which in Oregon feels like year round.

Dirt Minion 4×4 next plan of actions include a wide variety on new trails and expanding. There will be 2 new trails that require a lot of work for the trails to be sustainable for long term use. The organization also helped the Forest Service to obtain a large grant that will help expand the parking area along with permanent restrooms and also a campground may be in the near future for the park as well.

With the Trail Access Grant the organization has spent less time raising funds and more time putting their shovels to work.

Rugged Ridge Soft Top Spring Assist

Rugged Ridge today announced the availability of its new Soft Top Spring Assist Kit for the 2007-2012 Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited 4-door models.

Spring assisted opening and closing is already a feature found on the 2013-2014 Wranglers from the factory; Rugged Ridge’s new retrofit kit brings the same convenience to owners of older Jeeps. Designed to work with Jeep’s factory frame components, the new JK Soft Top Spring Assist kit is relatively easily installed and seamlessly integrates into the soft top as well as other aftermarket factory replacement tops on the market.

Engineered to allow just one person to raise and lower the top, each Rugged Ridge kit features dual spring arms and a quick release locking mechanism that keeps the soft top safely locked in the lowered position for open-air driving.

“The spring assist simplifies the process of raising your soft top from a two person job to a do-it-yourself task,” said Alain Eboli, Engineering Manager at Omix-ADA. “In older JKs, the canvas soft top is so heavy it requires the effort of two people – one on each side of the top. Now, with this retrofit kit, owners have the help of spring assist to lift the other side, making the process much less cumbersome.”

The Rugged Ridge Soft Top Spring Assist is backed by Rugged Ridge’s 5-year limited warranty and is available online and through select Jeep and off-road parts/accessories retailers nationwide.

For more information about the Soft Top Spring Assist, Rugged Ridge’s complete line of high-quality Jeep and off-road products, or to find an approved retailer, please contact Rugged Ridge at (770) 614-6101 or visit www.RuggedRidge.com.
