4 Wheel Drive Hardware is back supporting us again this year. Their help has been awesome. We picked up some really bling parts from them. Check out these really nice Corbeaus and the bling KMC beadlocks. Don't forget to give these guys a call if you need something. www.4wd.com


Whats some really bling wheels with out some really sweet Cooper Tires! Thats right Cooper is going to make a big statement in the rock crawling world this year.






The KMC wheels are also brand new on the market and like most things will take time to prove to the pirate guys wether it's a worthy product to spend youre hard earned money on. I am very impressed with the wheels so far the finish was better than I expected. (yes I was unsure considering some of the things I had heard.) But for the money and new style it is definately a slam dunk. I'll let scott compare them to his walkers he just got for you guys.

As for the coopers we are very excited to represent these guys. They have been offering solid on road products for years as well as high quality off road products as well. They just haven't made the dent as a go to tire like goodyear and BFG have done. After looking at the specs it turns out the tire is softer on the durometer than our BFG's were. Being a 12.50 wide tire that will also help to narrow us up some as well. The lugs don't appear to be as agressive as a swamper or Krawler but the siping seems to really help them flex and grab. Jake and job were able to pull off a win with them last year in a 40" tire class with only 37's. There's alot to be said there.

Last couple of partners I really want to thank for this year is Brandt Fabricating in Bashor Kansas and BAM Diesel Performance also in Bashor.
Brandt is the one we take our tricky welding things too. All of our transfer case doublers and aluminum welding are done at Brandt Fab.

Also new on the Diesel truck scene is BAM Diesel. Ryan has tons of experience working on all diesels but has the most fun with performance parts on the light duty stuff. If you get out to any midwest diesel truck pulling you are bound to see some of his work leading the pack.

I'll have some more soon but for now I've gotta get some rest. Looking forward to the We-Rock season opener at Hannibal this weekend. See you there!
Jake
