Scott’s XJ was a clean, rust free canvas to build from. I was surprised at how nice it was, inside and out. He was looking for a very street-able daily driven rig as well as well as weekend camping/wheeling rig. Scott came to Rock Your 4×4 with a host of maintenance items and a list of parts he thought would work well on this project. We talked several weeks before pulling the trigger and ordering the parts to make sure we could stay in his budget and address the concerns and questions he had with the build. We settled on the following:
-Rusty’s 3″ Advanced kit with rear springs and HD front coils
-Rusty’s greasable rear shackles
-Rusty’s rear bar pin eliminators
-Synergy ball joints
-Zone steering stabilizer
-Zone front sway bar links
-new hub bearings
-new pads, rotors, and calipers
-new axle joints
-15×8 Pro Comp steel wheels
-31/10.50r15 M/T Deegan tires
-Magaflow exhaust with custom tailpipe
The new stance is a head turner. We hope to see Scott on the trail soon.
One more place is knocked off of the bucket list. We had a blast at Adventure Off Road Park. We rode trails Friday and Saturday. The event was well planned and there were 140 registered vehicles in attendance. Adventure Off Road Park is only about a year old and there is some great potential there. It was nice to drive there, wheel, and drive home. The map is fairly easy to read and most of the trails were well marked. We hope you enjoy the Trailfest videos. Part 1 is featured HERE. Part 2 of our Trailfest videos is HERE.
The Climrox project just rolled out of the shop after another major upgrade. This latest installment included a custom full float Dana 60 and a high pinion Dana 44, both 5 on 5.5 to retain the same wheels. The WMS to WMS was changed from 61″ to 64″. The new axles were built with some nice upgrades.
Rear axle specs:
-Dana 60 low pinion
-Spyntec Full Float kit with drive flanges and GM disc brakes
-Ruffstuff traction bar, diff cover, and axle mounting hardware
Front axle specs :
-Spyntec wheel end package with drive flanges and GM disc brakes
-Ruffstuff diff cover, axle mounting hardware, and offset tie rod kit
The 12″ travel shocks were positioned for better control and more clearance. The result is a better looking, stronger, and more capable rig. Subscribe for more updates on the Climrox project.
We lucked up and caught this action footage at the Monster Jam in Knoxville last month.
Part 2 of our 3 part series of Dixie Run is now available for viewing. Watching the video reminds me how much fun we had this year. Every wheeler should make the Dixie Run a must-go-to event each year. Its good to see old friends and make new ones as well. Check out the newest video here.
A new hot item we’ve sold quite a few of lately is the Warn Zeon 10-S. The new winch design includes a removable control pack for more mounting options than the previous styles. The winch has a larger motor and planetary than previous designs. It also has an aluminum drum to dissipate heat better for the included synthetic rope. Warn also supplies a nice polished aluminum fairlead with the winch. Check out the pictures below and check out Warn’s site for more details.
The Rock Your 4×4 JK and three others take on the Sand Mines trail at Royal Blue WMA in this (click me!)15 minute video. The majority of the day was wet and rainy but the weather cleared and we were able to get out and enjoy the scenery. If you have and questions about local East Tennessee trails let us know or check out Iron Jeep.

The All Pro control arms are a great addition to any lifted 96-up Toyota. A few benefits of the replacement control arms include unrestricted movement and more positive caster for better handling. The control arms feature:
•4130 chromoly construction
•1″ FK Uni-ball
•Greasable bushings with zerk fittings
•Satin black powdercoated finish
•Gusseted design for strength
We just recently installed these arms on a local ’98 4Runner. Check out All Pro Off Road for more hard core Toyota parts and give us a call to order.
