  • An FJ Cruiser That’s Red Hot

     

    Toyota’s classic off-road sport utility lends itself well to a few upgrades. Well, maybe more than a few. You are definitely ready to hit the trail in this one – and  you’re well prepared if you should wander off of it.

    The factory-equipped Trail Teams edition already has a great package, which includes front and rear lockers. High Country 4×4 Center upgrades include:

    • Fab Fours Front and Rear Bumpers
    • 9.5 cti-s Winch from Warn
    • 6-inch Pro-Comp Coil-over Lift
    • Bushwacker Pocket Flares, painted to match
    • RBP (Rolling Big Power) 20-inch Wheels
    • 35-inch Toyo Open Country Mud Terrain Tires
    • In-dash Back-up Camera

    This Toyota is ready for the woods or the open road, and you definitely won’t be meeting yourself around every corner.

  • It’s Summer Time…Are You Ready?

    [ngg_images gallery_ids="8"]

    The weather is getting warmer and people are venturing outside to enjoy a bike ride, a hike, a little paddling, or a ride on a trail. With the warmer weather, there are a few vehicle maintenance steps you should take to ensure optimal performance.

    First, you should check your tire pressure. Proper tire pressure will help your gas mileage. In warmer weather, the air in your tire expands, so you may have more pressure than you think. Make sure to look at the recommended pressure on your tires and modify if needed.

    If you own a Jeep Wrangler, it’s time to check your tops. Are they in good shape, need cleaning or repair? When changing from your hard top to your soft top, it’s easier to do on a warm day because it will stretch over the bows without as much effort. Bestop makes a kit to help with maintenance – a cleaner for the top, a cleaner for the windows, and a protectant to extend the top’s lifespan.

    For those of you that enjoy a more open cab, you may want to consider a bikini or a safari top. Bikinis cover the front to passengers, and safaris cover the entire cab. High Country 4×4 Center has these in stock or can get one in just a day if the inventory is running a bit low. To protect your gear, a duster deck cover comes in handy to keep the back seat and storage areas dry during those pop-up summer showers.

    To truly enjoy the summer, you need a convenient way to carry all of your gear. Stop by for systems to help you take along your bikes, kayaks, canoes, and even extra “stuff” in a tray that fits right into your hitch. You’ll also want to take along a cooler filled with water, snacks, and your other favorite beverages to help you cool off – a Yeti cooler will help with that, and it’s as tough as the trail.

  • One Phat Ford F-450

     

    This is one bad Ford F-450. We started out with the 4-inch lift from FabTech and upgraded the shocks to Dirt Logic. The tires were upgraded to Nitto Trail Grapplers, 285/70/17….Wow! Then we added the Warn Generation II grille guard/winch mount combo with Warn 12k winch. The finished product was awesome – looks great and works hard, too!

  • JK-8 Conversion

     

    This 4-door Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has just undergone a Jeep JK-8 conversion performed by our RubiTrux division. It has been transformed from 4-doors to a Jeep truck with a removable half cab.

    Other add-ons installed by the RubiTrux division are many and include:
    AEV Front and Rear Bumpers
    Warn 9.5 cti Winch
    Katzkin Heated Leather Seats
    4.5-inch Nth Degree Lift
    AEV Hood
    IPF Lighting
    AMP Powersteps
    37-inch BFGoodrich KM2 Tires
    Ion 17-inch Wheels
    Re-geared from 3.73 to 5.13
    WeatherTech Floor Liners
    Jeep Gas Door Cover
    LED Light Kit
    Rugged Ridge Grille Inserts
    Light Guards
    Tinted Windows
    2012 Jeep Media Center with Navigation
    Back-up Camera

    The coup de grace for this edition will be a scheduled motor upgrade to a 5.7 Hemi VVT, which will make it a one-of-a-kind, 400-horsepower Jeep truck.
