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.
The S-Pod is a great addition to any vehicle. The S-Pod allows you to add electrical accessories with ease and safety. Below is a S-Pod that was recently installed.
The S-Pod Source 6 Circuit power distribution system includes:
-12 position terminal block for accessory attachment
-6 Bosch style cube style relays (SPST 40amp) (plug-in style)
-6 ATO style automotive fuses 3 15 amp and 3 30 amp supplied
-6 Diodes to protect sensitive accessories such as LED lights from “field collapse”
-Inline 50amp manual resetting circuit breaker
-8 gauge power leads with crimped and soldered terminal for connection to the battery
-Integrated LVCO (Low-Voltage-Cut-Off) circuit that detects the battery voltage and will cut-off at 10.6VDC and cuts-back in at 12.4VDC so there is enough juice to start your vehicle in case you left an accessory on!!!
-Fuse for LVCO which can be removed to bypass the LVCO
-Mounting bracket for Jeep Wranglers
For years we’ve been fans of TnT Customs and the products they supply. Take a few minutes to check out their site and let us know if you have questions about a certain product. Also, check back as we post the build thread on a 2011 JK using TnT’s aluminum complete underbody armor kit.
Here is the rock’s view of TnT’s Engine/Transmission Skid:
The AEV kits are becoming one of our top sellers. The kits feature remote reservoir shocks as well as a high steer draglink to match the roll center corrected brackets. The 4.5″ kit allows 37″ tires to be installed without any other modification. The ride and handling is superb. Let me know if you have any questions regarding these kits or any other AEV part.
Well, it’s the time of year when the backcountry gets hammered by soaking rains and things just don’t dry out as they do in the summer. I hope we’ll have some snow this year. We’ve been out on the trails several times the past few months and thought it’d be nice to share a few videos and pictures of those adventures. Be sure to check out this footage of the east TN terrain.

The JKs are coming out of the woodwork! We’ve lifted and setup more JKs just this year than we have since their birth in 2007. The most common setup is the 2-3″ kit with 34-35″ tires. For the cost, you can’t find a better package to get the looks and off road performance from the JK. Here is Stephen’s JK Shara Unlimited. We hooked Stephen up with the AEV2″ Spacer kit and wrapped the factory 18″ Sahara wheels with 34/12.00 Nitto Trail Grapplers. We really like using AEV parts on our builds. AEV has spent countless engineering hours creating components that work and function better than the factory equipment. You’ll not find just spacers with the AEV kit. They provide sway bar correction, bumpstop correction, and shock correction. And, by reusing the factory springs and shocks, the ride isn’t compromised. To allow clearance for the 34″ Nitto, we used 1.5″ Alloy USA wheel spacers. JK Before & After
Since the photos, Stephen has added ACE Eng. sliders as well as a hood mounted Hi-Lift jack and some lower windshield lights.
It’s been a great year so far and things have been real busy, sometimes too busy. So, we took the day off and headed to the woods on Memorial Day after a nice barbeque dinner at Rickard Ridge in the Cove Lake State Park. We got on the trail about 6:45p.m. and were out at the other end of the trail airing up by 9:00. It was the perfect evening and dry conditons made the trail almost effortless. You’ll catch a glimpse of the JK’s Achilles Heel in the video below:
