  • GenRight. The Right Choice For Jeepers!

    At RubiTrux we work with a variety of aftermarket vendors, to bring you the best Jeep products the Jeep world has to offer. This week we’re proud to showcase GenRight! We've featured these products on builds such as Project Vandal and several of our current TJ Brute Conversions.

    Genuine Product Ideas Engineered Right

    GenRight is short for Genuine Ideas Engineered Right. The off-road-racing inspired company went public in 2006. But the GenRight founders and employees were no strangers to the off-road world before they went public. These 4x4 enthusiasts have decades of experience, from weekend wheeling to the King of the Hammers (KOH)! Based out of California, GenRight manufactures many products. These accessories range from aftermarket gas-tanks to fully built racing roll cages for CJ’s and all Wranglers. You get nothing but the best for your Jeep build, from the oldest classic to the newest JK Unlimited.

    GenRight Offroad Logo

    Gas Tanks

    Even before the name GenRight existed, Tony Pellegrino (President and Founder) was designing and building “Crawler Extreme” high clearance aluminum gas tanks. These custom tanks allow Jeepers to stretch the wheelbase without interference and offer more clearance than the standard tank offered by Jeep. We all know just how vulnerable a gas tank is when off road. So it's a win-win when you have something that is not only tucked up high enough to avoid collision, but is also strong aluminum. These tanks are available for every CJ, YJ, TJ and JK.

    GenRight Gas Tanks

    Bumpers And Armor

    Many Jeepers constantly search for more power. One way you can do this is through weight reduction. Many times, weight reduction typically relates to removing seats, carpet and even air conditioning; but at what benefit? Another way you can do this is to utilize high strength aluminum that generally weighs half of its steel counterpart. One of the best parts about aluminum (especially here in Boone) is that you can leave the raw finish without worrying about rust or corrosion. Rest assured, aluminum can take a beating off road too. All of GenRight’s products are race and off-road tested in some of the harshest environments in the country. Not worried about weight? GenRight offers most of their products in a steel match with a more budget friendly price as well!

    GenRight Bumper

    GenRight Armor

    Tire Carriers

    As you consider a bigger tire size, two things you should contemplate are tire size and weight. Although many have done otherwise, we only recommend using a 33” tall tire, at most, on the factory tailgate. Any larger than that, we notice a common trend of tailgates loosening, rattling, and even breaking spot welds, and damaging the tailgate itself. GenRight’s simple design removes the weight off of the tailgate and reinforces the weight through the hinges and spread across the rear sides of your Jeep’s tub to accommodate up to a 42” tall tire. We installed this setup on Project Vandal to hold its 40x14.50x20 Interco SSM16 spare tire and has been flawless. We are especially impressed with its rattle free design and how easy it is to operate. Check out the video below!

    GenRight Fenders

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=la_FLufu6AU

    Fenders

    Along with bumpers and armor, the industry constantly recognized GenRight for its fenders. High clearance fenders provide a larger wheel well opening so that you can use a much larger tire combined with a smaller lift height to create a more stable ride off road. GenRight offers fenders in variations of no flare to 6” so that its customers (even with strict tire coverage laws) can enjoy the freedom of larger tires without a massive lift.

    GenRight offers fender flares in aluminum, steel, and even carbon fiber for the JK crowd!

    GenRight Fenders

    genright-fenders-3

    Roll Cages

    Any Jeeper that is heavily involved in off-roading knows the importance of a solid roll cage. While  bolt on cages are available, GenRight feels that the most protective cages are fully welded. GenRight offers cages for CJ’s to JK’s that are specially cut and notched to fit together like a puzzle, so that install is as simple as possible. Just line up the “puzzle pieces” and have your experienced welder add the finishing touches. Don’t have an experienced welder? No problem! Genright also offers a welder services and ships the roll finished roll cage straight to you.

    GenRight Roll Cage

    GenRight's Suspension

    GenRight also offers a custom fabricated suspension, designed to handle everything from curvy roads to rock racing, in one complete package. GenRight's suspension features a unique 3-Link front and 4-Link rear to allow for plenty of smooth, usable suspension travel. GenRight focuses their kits around King Off Road Racing coil overs, while tucking every component as high as possible to give the ultimate ground clearance.

    GenRight Suspension

    If you want to order Genright products, or if you just want some more information, please don’t hesitate to give us a call! Dial 1-888-357-2999.

     

  • Baja Designs Optimum LED Lighting

    Baja Designs is an industry leader in off-road lighting. For over 20 years, they've designed premium quality lighting solutions for military, agricultural, marine, industrial and consumer use. The company creates and innovates to provide brighter, bolder lighting for all applications.

    Baja Designs' CopperDrive System

    Baja Designs understands its top industry ratings depend on its ability to build quality internals; not just yield light output. Their quality process begins in the LED light itself. CopperDrive is the LED management system BD uses to manufacture a superior product. The CopperDrive system uses next generation circuit boards and driver technology to run LEDs effectively and safely at a true 100%.

    Four levels of thermal management transfer heat up to 3000% more efficiently. BD provides an extra layer of vibration isolation to truly take the best LED on the market to the next level. They use copper in their circuit boards (instead of aluminum) to transfer heat at a super efficient rate. The thermal gap plays an important role in aiding the transfer to the heatsink, keeping your LEDs cool during use. The CopperDrive also includes microprocessor-controlled thermistors that constantly monitor the LED temperature. This process ensures brightness and longevity.

    Baja Designs - CopperDrive

    5000K Daylight

    Anyone who has experienced driving with a well-designed LED headlight knows that a halogen bulb is far inferior. LEDs reign supreme for increasing your field of view. And they produce a more relaxing light for night driving.

    Human eyes see best at noon on a sunny day. On the Kelvin Color Temperature Scale that time and light equates to 5000° Kelvin. This color reduces driver fatigue and increases terrain recognition. Baja Designs exclusively uses 5000K LEDs to give you the highest performance and safest driving experiences possible.

    Baja-Designs-5000K-Daylight

    Baja Designs' MoistureBlock Technology

    Waterproof, rainproof, and submersible are three more qualities that make Baja Designs an industry leader. The combination of O-ring seals and Baja Designs' proprietary cord technology, creates superior water blockage. The O-ring seals much more effectively block water than beads of silicone. And the BD cords completely prevent water from wicking its way up the cord into the light.

    Even if the connector is cut off, the lights are still waterproof and your warranty remains intact. Weather elements play a key role in LED light performance. Since conditions are often less than ideal, MoistureBlock keeps the top-of-the-line auxiliary lights functioning properly in all weather conditions.

    Baja-Designs-Moisture-Block

    Baja Designs' Interchangeable uService

    Baja Designs uses a truly all-inclusive manufacturing process. Since they use o-rings instead of silicone seals, the BD's lighting allows you to interchange your lenses for a variety of applications. You can change beam patterns with ease.

    Light patterns in LED lights sealed with silicone are not interchangeable. In this case, a rock chip is either something you have to live with, or you have to return it directly to your light supplier for repair. With BD lights, you simply unscrew the water and dust proof lenses, change the o-ring over, and reapply the ring that holds the lens in place.

    Baja-Designs-uService

    Baja Designs' ClearView Optics

    While focused on providing the safest and most effective light output, BD also must build a lens that does not cloud to ensure optimum light passes through. This may seem simple, but imperfections in a lens (or one made with inferior materials) will lose light in the pass through.

    ClearView is Baja Designs' proprietary optic. The BD ClearView provides more usable light patterns than any other manufacturer's optics. Baja Designs gives you light for every zone and the scientific data to back it up. Racing engineers with first hand knowledge (about what each optic must contain to be the most successful in its application) design ClearView in-house at Baja.

    They design each optic to illuminate one or more of the eight specific lighting zones. BD’s Wide Cornering and Wide Driving patterns were the first HID and LED lights to offer both a horizontal cut off, coupled with a wide pattern. This ensures the light is usable in fog or dust, without causing blinding back-scatter. It also fills the crucial cornering zone so you don't feel like you are driving in a tunnel.

    BD’s High Speed Spot has revolutionized LED lighting by truly achieving the distance of an HID with the smoothness of an LED. Other patterns available are Driving, Spot, Flood/Work and Dome/Interior. Amber patterns are also offered. See all the patterns and zones Baja Designs covers below!

    “The ultimate goal of lighting is to provide a smooth field of light so the driver can drive quickly with minimal fatigue. My engineering and racing knowledge combined with the feedback of our professional racers and drivers has allowed us to develop the best optics in the industry.” – Alan Roach, Baja Designs Engineer, Founder and Racer.

  • An Extraordinary Brute Double Cab HEMI Conversion

    As we prepare to deliver our popular Project Vandal 7.3L HEMI to its new owner, we thought it only appropriate to launch a new HEMI build in the high horsepower, big tire, unique build section of our RubiTrux shop. When our regular customer, enduring supporter and RubiTrux friend, Mark, heard the chatter, he came up with a brilliant idea. Mark asked us to to build his dream Brute Double Cab. Of course, we were honored and thrilled.

    Brute-Double-Cab-Hemi

    We spent a few days bouncing ideas back and forth to determine the direction of this custom Jeep build. We knew Mark wanted plenty of power. And we knew his extraordinary taste for premium quality and unique design elements to make his vehicles really stand out. Aside from that, he left all the specific design-build choices up to us. We think it’s safe to say, “We nailed it!”

    Stock Wrangler JKU to Double Cab: What A Stretch!

    The process started at AEV’s conversion shop in Wixom, Michigan. A brand new stock Wrangler JKU is stripped down and ready for the conversion process. The added sections in the frame stretch the wheelbase an astounding 23 inches, from a 116-inch wheelbase to a 139-inch wheelbase. AEV then adds a custom cab enclosure, hard top, and stamped composite bed measuring 61 inches long by 60 inches wide.

    Every Double Cab conversion comes standard with an AEV DC350 build package, meaning a 3.5-inch lift and 35-inches tall tires. The conversion process usually takes around 9 months to complete from order to delivery and starts at $41,589 for the conversion alone, not including the Jeep itself.

    We started with AEV’s DC350 build Package as a base; 3.5” DualSport SC suspension, 35x12.50x17 BFG KM2 Mud Terrain Tires, AEV Pintler Wheels, and AEV Premium front and rear bumpers. While it looks incredible, stretching the wheelbase and adding larger tires does have one downfall... Power.

    The HEMI Swap Unleashed A Monster.

    Even the mighty 3.6L Pentastar engine starts to lose some power with the added upgrades. Mark knew this so our first item on the build sheet was a 6.4L HEMI. Knowing Mark’s taste, we knew it wouldn’t stop there.

    You may remember the 7.3L stroker HEMI from Project Vandal, built by our friends at Arrington Performance in Martinsville, Virginia. Arrington is THE go-to performance shop for all things HEMI.  We were unsuccessful at convincing Mark to go with a 7.3L stroker, but we did plan out an upgrade for the 392.

    Arrington swapped the stock heads for CNC Ported and Polished Heads, replaced the stock valves with EPOC Custom Machined Valves, added a Comp 270 Cam and wrote a custom tune for us.

    What kind of power does this add? Glad you asked. The stock 6.4L HEMI makes around 470 HP at the crank with the AEV HEMI Conversion kit. With the added upgrades, this unleashed monster now makes around 650 HP at the crank and an incredible 590 lb-ft of torque!

    External Upgrades For A Heavenly Highway Experience.

    After the HEMI swap we focused on exterior upgrades. We swapped out the 3.5 inch DualSport SC suspension to the 4.5-inch DualSport SC suspension. This, of course, made more room for a bigger tire. While our normal combination is a 4.5-inch lift paired with a 37-inch tall tire, we wanted to push the limits with a 38-inch tall tire. It doesn’t seem like much, but a one-inch taller tire makes a huge difference.

    We chose a 38x13.50r18 Toyo Open Country MT paired with a Fuel 18 x 9 inch Anza wheel. We feel this combination is a match made in heaven. The tires don’t look too big, nor too small. They fill the wheel well proportionately.

    To help turn the massive tires, we chose a 4.56 gear ratio to make it jump right off the line, even with 38s! We could have considered 4.88s. But with all the highway driving this Jeep will experience, plus the HEMI, the 4.56 ratio fits the bill best for both application and performance.

    Dressed For Success! Small Details Make A Big Difference.

    We always take pride in small details, and this build is no different! We completely outfitted the interiorWe started with custom Alea F-1 leather. Then we added the Alpine X009-WRA Restyle Head Unit.

    For an easy in-and-out experience in a Jeep this tall, we installed Carolina Metal Masters Billet Front Grab Handles, paired with AMP Research Power Steps.

    We upgraded lighting with Vision X Vortex LED Headlights, JW Speaker Fog Lights, and a full Recon lighting package which includes turn signals, fender markers and tail lights -- all in a smoke and black. We installed ARB 32 Intensity LED lights for a tasteful touch of color and more forward projecting light.

    If you didn’t catch it on Facebook, here’s a quick glimpse at Mark's new beastie, but beautiful, custom Double Cab conversion. (Stay tuned for a more detailed video posting soon.)

  • Jeep Wrangler JKU Old Man Emu Suspension

    jeep-wrangler-jk-old-man-emu-front

    Here at RubiTrux, most of our builds are equipped with an American Expedition Vehicles DualSport suspension system; however, this recently finished build is unique in that we added an Old Man Emu suspension system instead. While this is not a first for us, this JKU certainly stands out from the crowd, especially with the bright yellow shock absorbers and steering stabilizer. Old Man Emu offers a variety of accessories for the Jeep Wrangler, including lift kits, track bar brackets, transfer case lowering kits, and trim spacers, to name a few.

    jeep-wrangler-jk-old-man-emu-rear

    This 2015 Billet Jeep Wrangler JK Unlimited is equipped with an OME (Old Man Emu) 4" suspension system, which includes four Nitrocharger Sport shock absorbers, four coil springs, one steering stabilizer, a forged track bar, brake line relocation kit, sway bar link disconnect kit, rear track bar bracket kit, bump stops, front and rear trim spacers, and a caster & driveline kit. For smaller builds, Old Man Emu also offers a 2.5" kit for the JK that can feature a light or heavy spring rate, depending upon the desired application.

    jeep-wrangler-jk-old-man-emu-front-sideAn OME suspension lift will allow the fitment of larger tires on your Jeep, and will also improve on and offroad performance. Old Man Emu has long been a popular choice among offroad enthusiasts, and for good reason; whether you have an older Wrangler, a Grand Cherokee, or a brand new, off the lot JK, contact RubiTrux for all of your Old Man Emu needs!

  • 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited: Customer's Build

    jeep-wrangler-JKU-black-vinyl-wrap-before

    This recent project at RubiTrux definitely stands out from the crowd. With 37" Nitto Extreme Terrain Tires, ORFab Stinger, EVO rock sliders, and a Teraflex lift kit, this rig was capable of conquering any type of terrain, save for one, the highway. While this Jeep was well equipped for off-road excursions, on-road performance was lacking, namely in regards to road noise and poor ride quality. Enter RubiTrux, where this customer's build continues, so that off-road prowess can meet on-road functionality, with additions such as Hellwig swaybars, PSC Hydro Steering Assist, a Prodigy Performance Stage 2 Intercooled Turbo,  Poison Spyder armor, bumpers, and a Warn Zeon Winch. Currently, this JKU is receiving a full body matte black vinyl wrap, in addition to countless other upgrades. Stay tuned for more!
