At the SEMA Show this year we announced that we will launching this program that will will provide grants to non-profit organizations to help keep trails open on public land. These grants will also go to groups that help advance and protect the off-roading. At the SEMA show, Omix-ADA donated $50,000 to the program as a show of support for organizations fighting for trail access.
“The Rugged Ridge Trail Access Program was created to back efforts to keep public trails open to full-size four-wheel-drive off-road use,” said Dave Logan, product manager at Omix-ADA and a four-wheel-drive trainer. “Omix-ADA will always support the off-road hobby; we recognize that for us and others within the off road automotive aftermarket, no trails means no sales.”
Non-profit organizations can apply for grants of up to $5000 by visiting www.ruggedridge.com/trailaccess. Only one grant will be awarded to any given organization per year. Grants can be put toward education, stewardship, litigation, or any other activity advocating the conservation of public land and access to recreational trails.
The Eclipse Sun Shade gives both the front and rear passengers a “top down” feeling, while providing added protection from the sun. By retaining access to the Jeep’s top clamps, drivers can keep the shade in place and still use the factory Freedom panels. By using the mesh material with built-in elastic straps, the Eclipse Sun Shade was designed to eliminate the need for a header channel. The Eclipse Sun Shade installs with built-in bungee cords and a small mesh carrying bag for storage when not in use. Compact in size, the Rugged Ridge sun shade can be stored in just about any compartment of a Jeep for quick access.

The Jeep was originally built for military use and gained a reputation on the battlefields of World War II. After the war was over the civilian CJ was made available to the public. So to pay tribute to the old time beauty Jeep has created a limited 2014 Jeep Wrangler Willys Wheeler Edition that will debut at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show.
The 2014 Jeep Wrangler Willys Wheeler Edition is inspired by early Willys CJ (Civilian Jeep) models with exclusive styling and upgraded off-road goodies. Starting with a Wrangler Sport, these upgrades include a Dana 44 rear axle with limited-slip differential and 3.73 gears, along with meaty BF Goodrich KM Mud Terrain tires mounted to the Willys Wheeler’s black 17-inch wheels. For more of a classic Jeep look, this model adds a gloss black grille, “Willys” hood stickers and rock rails to protect the side sills. Jeep is also tossing in a D-ring, tow strap and gloves that are all kept in a special carrying bag.
When it goes on sale early next year, the two-door Willys Wheeler Edition will start at $26,790 and the Unlimited four-door models at $30,590. That pricing reflects a premium of $3400 for either version, but there is quite a bit that comes with the package.

Everybody loves a Jeep cause it can go literally anywhere with you off the beaten path. Offroading and Jeeps were a match made in heaven. So when we were just doing our rounds around the web to see the latest Jeep stories we came across a ad that would make any Jeep owner proud. So let us humor you:
First is the screening test to see if your qualified enough:
if you do not own a toolbox, have never changed your own oil, and are scared of firearms: THIS VEHICLE IS NOT FOR YOU.
If you have been posting on facebook all about how excited you are for pumpkin latte season: THIS VEHICLE IS NOT FOR YOU.
If you get offended easy and often, whine to your co-workers, and bitch a lot: THIS VEHICLE IS NOT FOR YOU.
If you feel you are owed anything in the world & have a bull-ish job where you fail to produce: THIS VEHICLE IS NOT FOR YOU.
If you own a bieber album, white oakleys, affliction t-shirts, or those candy-butt stitched-pocket jeans: THIS VEHICLE IS NOT FOR YOU.
If you consider the 2nd Amendment an anachronistic relic and have never owned a firearm: THIS VEHICLE IS NOT FOR YOU.
Than if you pass this why you should buy it:
If, however, you have BALLS OF STEEL and consider adverse weather an excuse to do stupid shit: THIS IS YOUR JEEP.
Do you laugh at danger, and tempt fate?
Have you ever uttered the words, “Hold my beer and watch this …”?
While bored at work do you pick targets at random and think, “I could hit that from here with the .22 …”?
Have any of your friends quit hanging out because you were too much fun?
Do you have the number of a friend with cash memorized for bail?
When you pass an abandoned flatbed farm truck along a fenceline do you consider taking on another project?
Is your ol’ lady really sick of the random piles of parts, greasy footprints, and empty beer bottles in the garage? Could you not care less?
Do you have Jalopnik saved on your laptop AND smartphone?
Do you own a service manual for every vehicle you ever owned?
Do you still miss your first ride?
Can you carry on a two hour conversation discussing tools, scars, and hi-lift jacks?
Remember when tool companies had the balls to put half-naked beauty queens on their calendars?
Do you consider the Prius an abominable affront to the Gods of displacement, torque, and All Mighty Internal Combustion?
Jeep enthusiasts can now get an aggressive never-before-seen off-road look for their ’07-’14 Jeep Wrangler JK with the introduction of Rugged Ridge’s newly designed Hurricane Flat Fender Flares.
Drawing inspiration from the company’s own historical Jeep Collection, the Rugged Ridge Hurricane Flat Fender Flares combine the popular modern pocket style with the traditional flat fender design first found on the 1941 Willys MA.
“We looked back at some of the original prototype Jeeps in our collection and were inspired by the design of the Willys fender flare; especially that little triangle support in the front,” said Henk Van Dongen, Director of Marketing at Omix-ADA. “Our engineers took that idea, modified it and gave the design a modern twist; creating a new style that resulted in the new flat pocket fender flare design.”
Each new Hurricane Flat Fender Flare incorporates a unique double bolt pocket that updates the classic pocket flare design. Engineered for both form and function, the fender flare’s unique shape is built to complement the Wrangler’s body, resting high on the vehicle and providing extra clearance for oversized wheels and tires while on trails, and protecting the vehicle’s paint from flying rocks, mud and any other elements found outdoors.
Each flare is constructed from durable black TPE plastic that can be left unfinished or painted to match the factory paint. Included with each purchase are two sets of durable corrosion resistant fasteners, one stainless steel and one black so owners can personalize the final look to their own tastes. The fender flares are priced from $499.99 and are backed by an industry-leading, five-year limited warranty.
