We are putting the finishing touches on the new Recon Rack for the Toyota Tacoma. It is a tubular bed rack system, using modular roll cage type construction similar to the Congo Pro. This rack fits all our baskets, platforms and accessories, making it the ultimate load handling solution for off-road expeditions to everyday utility.

I am always testing a different rack set-up on my my JK, but the Congo Pro with a Mod-Rak Stealth platform is what i eventually come back to as my personal favorite. This sweet rack does it all in style. I just reconfigured my Jeep and will share a few details of the install.
Here are the main components of the Congo Pro Base Rack, super sturdy 2" x .120" wall tubing with our trick clamps. I put the whole mess on the scale including the Katwalk and it weighs in at 125 lbs. Not bad considering it is evenly distributed across the vehicle. This rack will carry way more than your Jeep can handle so don't get crazy...
the front hoop mounts solidly to the a-pillar braces picking up 10 bolts. The rear hoop can be mounted to the rear bumper or to the frame using the supplied brackets.
The Mod-Rak platform is attached to the spreader bars using hard anodized billit clamps. It is a modular aluminum deck with our integrated t-slot extrusion for mounting accessories like the k-rails, eye-nuts and rope hooks. I also threw on a few sets of grab handles for EZ access.
We also offer an optional rear step to avoid the temptation to stand on the tail light...
I drove 400 miles home from Auburn, Washington with an ARB bull bar and a full OME tacoma lift kit on my roof. No rattles, sweaks, whistles nor worries. Who needs a pickup truck when you have a Congo Pro and a Mod-Rak Platform? Try it! You'll wonder how you ever got by without one.

In the Jeep world there are no shortage of rocker protection offerings, in fact the options are downright dizzying. When the KMS Rocker Walks were conceived, we started with a blank slate, the objective was to create a multi purpose product that is unlike anything on the market. I will explain why they are such a perfect choice for almost every Jeep JK.
No drilling required. Just remove old equipment and clean off any dirt or grime.
Tightly boxed and wrapped to protect that beautiful matte textured powder coat finished 3/16" steel plate.
Inner support attaches to factory holes along pinch weld area of rocker panel. Precision laser work ensures fitment.
Outer Shell bolts to inner support and picks up lower body mount bolts. Notice how they perfectly follow the body line with even margins and just enough gap for cleaning. Dimple die surface provides a slip free step for EZ access. Designed to make entering vehicle or accessing roof rack and Kat-walk via Hinge-steps a secure and natural affair.
Fender to fender protection, a real plus for rock wash, which can chip your paint to hell after only a couple hundred miles of graveled roads. I also really like how they keep the cow shit off my door handles... Notice how nothing hangs down, exact same clearance as factory Rubicon guards.
Not only are Rocker Walks a great step and debris deflector, they are built for big rocks as well. I drug my JK on 35" tires through the Rubicon Trail on this set without any body damage whatsoever. With a 4 door these rockers got a work out, but they were no worse for the wear. I don't know of any other Rockers that do so much so well without making swiss cheese of your body for all the drilling. Our customers in areas of salted roads will really appreciate not inducing body cancer due to rust. Buy a pair of Rocker Walks for your Jeep JK, there really is nothing else like them for any price.
On sale now, don't delay!

If you haven't noticed LED light bars are very popular among the off-road crowd. Prices have really become quite reasonable and the biggest obstacle usually is how to mount it properly. KMS makes it easy with our # 60300 billet aluminum light mount kit.
The disadvantage to our mounts is that they only work for 42" bars and smaller. I have a friend who already had a 52" bar but wanted to use it in conjunction with our Congo Pro. The front hoop of our rack is basically the same dimensions as the factory windshield frame, so we just cut his old mount down to size and drilled and tapped 2 holes each side and bolted it to the Congo Pro.
I prefer 42" light bars for the sake of not catching them on rocks and trees, but if you already have a 50-52" light bar you like, don't worry, with this simple modification you can upgrade to the Congo Pro and utilize your light and mounts. Our mounts will work with any 2" tubular rack, get yours today.

I have knives, machetes and blades stashed all over the place, but my new L.T. Wright overland machete will never be out of reach. This sweet little machete is a functional piece of art. Unlike most of my blades this baby is made by craftsmen here in the U.S.A.

I am a tool guy. Good equipment saves time, money and frustration. When i first saw the Krazy Beaver shovel i thought it was cute. Let me tell you i dig this shovel. I own no less than 25 shovels of every kind, and this one is the meanest.

I always run heavy loaded and needed to unlock some more horsepower from my 2014 3.6L Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. I have tried many different programmers with mixed results but when i laid my eyes on the new Superchips TD2 i had to have one.
Why TD2? Well … it does everything, and then some. It actually does more than i need, but what was really important besides some of the best power tunes in the business was the interface and control features.
