The Xventure Off-Road Trailer from Schutt Industries is an overland trailer designed to tackle the trails with your off-road Jeep, truck or SUV. Featuring weld-less aluminum construction and utilizing the company’s patented Alcoa Huck Bolt system, Schutt Industries explains the design is more rigid and sturdy compared to traditional welded units and it less prone to vibration fatigue on the trail. The fully customizable trailers, which were originally designed for military use, feature a full-size cargo bed (large enough to haul an ATV), spray-in bed liner and undercoating, electric brakes instead of hydraulic, a removable tailgate, large front storage cabinet, torsion suspension axle system and more. There are a variety of optional features, such as a pullout canopy for shade over the chef’s gallery, a variety of tent options, and even the option for solar-panel power. The unit the company displayed at EJS runs in the low $20,000s, with the base trailer starting at around $11,000. More information on options and features of the Xventure can be found on the company’s website at www.GOxventure.com.
NEMESIS INDUSTRIES ALUMINUM JEEP JK ARMOR
Nemesis Industries launched new aluminum front and rear bumpers for the Jeep JK during Moab EJS. The company also released a new rocker that incorporates steps into the design. In addition to the new body armor, an aluminum light bar was developed to mount five off-road lights or an LED light bar. All these new JK products are constructed from quality 3/16″ aluminum sheet, formed by a CNC press brake using proprietary tooling. The parts are then welded and metal finished providing a seamless finish. We were told that this new line of Nemesis Industries Jeep JK aluminum armor will be available for sale in mid-2014.
