Our aluminum hybrid products are designed to be as strong as a comparable steel products at less than half the weight. Think of it this way. We put 70 lbs of corner armor, 70 lbs of gas tank skid armor, 80 lbs of rocker armor on our Jeeps. That’s at least 220 lbs more than a stock Jeep. Add that to all of the other stuff we cram into them and it is not uncommon to see an extra 500lbs on a Jeep. Factor in the bigger wheels and your Jeep is now a dog and the suspension sags. If the rockers, gas tank skid and corners only weighed a total of 110 lbs you see why we are making things out of aluminum.
Where do we play?
Aluminum is every bit as strong and resilient to steel. We use 6061-T6 heat treated aluminum alloy. There is really only one way to best test a product to see what kind of abuse it can take. Johnson Valley, California has trails that take you to the limits of your ability to navigate thru the unforgiving rocks of the Hammer trails.
There are many beautiful, breath taking and awe inspiring trails in California. We like the rugged isolation of Johnson Valley’s Hammer Trails. Considered some of the toughest trails in North America. We invite you to come play with us!
- Our products are trailed tested here and other great trails.
- Our test mules are everyday TJ/Unlimiteds that have been outfitted and built to withstand tough trails.
