Headed into the summer days of wheeling, we thought it a good time to bring you another roundup of new off-road products to get you geared up for a day on the trail.
Quadratec JT/JL Tube Doors
One of the best tickets to #JeepLife is the ability to remove the doors from a Wrangler or Gladiator for a bit of freewheeling trail fun. Classic-style half doors are notably absent from the parts catalog right now, so Quadratec has stepped up with a set of tube doors that fill the gap quite nicely (pun intended).
With kits available for two- and four-door models, the black powder-coated tubular-steel doors deliver a fresh open-air feeling and rugged off-road look. Built from two-inch, 16-gauge steel tubing, Quadratec Tube Doors are expertly crafted to keep occupants safe and secure while enjoying a true open-air trail driving experience. Plus, they look completely bad-ass.
Hellwig Front Sway Bar, 2019+ Silverado/Sierra 1500
Available for both two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive models, the Hellwig front sway bar is wider in diameter than the stock sway bar and reduces body roll for improved driving dynamics and more control for the driver. Measuring 1 3/8inches in diameter, it’s forged from heat treated 4140 chromoly steel and features Hellwig’s “Hammertone” powder coat to prevent corrosion and wear.
Helpfully, the sway bar retains the factory end links and includes polyurethane bushings for reduced noise during operation. It can be installed with simple hand tools and comes with all necessary parts and hardware, so forget about rummaging around in that Random Leftover Part Box to find a washer that’ll finish the job. Hellwig sway bars are made in the USA and backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
Hellwig Helper Springs
As anyone who’s ever hitched a trailer to their truck or loaded it full of gravel can attest, the rear suspension of a pickup can squat under heavy loads. This does several unhelpful things to your truck, not the least of which is making the its steering less precise thanks to the relative lack of weight on the front end. Having a set of headlamps pointed at Jupiter doesn’t help, either.
Helper springs are designed to maintain a level ride height, improving the safety and look of your truck. In addition to addressing the problems mentioned above, helper springs also reduce the amount of wear and tear on the rear end suspension and braking components, making this accessory an ounce of prevention that’s definitely worth more than a pound of cure.
EarthCruiser Dual Cab Overland Adventure RV
Okay, this one is far outside our normal list of bolt-on accessories but it’s such a cool concept that we couldn’t help but share it with our readers. EarthCruiser has developed a new overland adventure RV based on a dual cab chassis that you’ve probably seen around work sites and delivery zones.
They are custom-built rigs complete with a Hero 2-speed transfer case and Dynatrac Pro Series 80 axles with front and rear ARB air lockers. Two onboard air compressors actuate the ARB diff lockers for brutish off-road traction. The camper comes standard with WARN hubs, an alloy bullbar, brush guard, WARN front-mounted winch, and radiator skid plate.
Driven by a 6.0 liter V8 Vortec gasoline-fueled engine, it packs 297 horsepower and 361 lb-ft of torque, all backed by an Allison automatic. In addition to solar panels on the roof and a water filtrations system, the EarthCruiser has a 60-gallon fuel tank, meaning you can finally check out that far flung dry lake bed you’ve always wanted to visit.
