5.11 Backpack for Free from ARB!

Purchase an ARB Air Locker and receive a special edition 5.11 Tactical Backpack for free. Rebate form must be submitted by August 15th, 2018 to be eligible.


ARB Air Locker

Created to provide 100% traction on demand, without sacrificing any of your vehicle’s highway driving performance, ARB Air Lockers employ a 12 volt ARB Air Compressor designed to activate (and deactivate) a solid and durable locking mechanism inside the differential. This gives you the traction you need, when you need it, all at the flip of a switch and all within the comfort of the driver’s seat.

The advantage of the ARB Air Locker lies in the pneumatically operated locking system inside the differential. When activated, the Air Locker prevents the differential gears from rotating and therefore prevents the axle shafts from turning independently of each other. With both wheels tied directly to the rotation of the ring gear, the vehicle maintains maximum possible traction at all times. When unlocked, it operates just like a conventional ‘open’ differential.

In addition to providing outright improvements to a 4×4’s off road capabilities, the Air Locker offers significant environmental benefits. An Air Locker equipped vehicle can be driven in a slower, safer and more controlled manner, greatly reducing the likelihood of vehicle damage and environmental impact.

Why switch to an Odyssey battery? Safety, Power, Durability – 42% Off of Overstock Batteries!

We Currently have a limited number of Overstock Group 34 and Group 34R Odyssey Performance series batteries for only $143! get yours now at: https://ruggedrocksoffroad.com/index.php?route=product/search&search=*Overstock*
These will fit in 2005+ Xterras and Frontiers, are an oversize battery that fit in 1986 – 1997 Nissan Pathfinders and Hardbodies and will likely also fit as an oversize battery in 1998-2004 Frontiers and Xterras! They are usually priced at $249, but are currently going for only $143! These overstock batteries carry a 6-month warranty. We have very few shipping boxes for these batteries so order soon! Remaining overstock batteries will need to be picked up from our Corona, CA location. Otherwise new/non-overstock batteries can be shipped.

If you have haven’t heard of Odyssey batteries before, I want to introduce them to you. As an off road enthusiast, choosing a battery for your vehicle that fits your off road needs is important. You may have not thought about it before, but your battery takes a lot of abuse due to shock and vibration while off road. It also has to deliver high amounts of current for various accessories such as winches, lights, & communication equipment. It needs to be able to be deeply discharged allowing you to run various accessories at camp, and it should be sealed to prevent leaking acid all over the engine bay or even worse.. all over you!

 Odyssey batteries are an AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat) battery with impressive specifications that address all of these needs, and even more!
These batteries are sealed dry cell batteries with a robust case that hold up to the heavy vibrations and are sealed to prevent spilling. This means you don’t need to worry about acid making a mess all over your vehicle when on steep hills, crazy off camber situations… or even a rollover!

Odyssey batteries have lots of cranking power ot get your engine started and also hold a charge in long term storage better than conventional flooded batteries, especially in cold weather. They can also be deep cycled! Partly due to the pure lead that is used in these batteries, they charge extremely fast and work very well with our high output alternators (available here: https://ruggedrocksoffroad.com/index.php?route=product/search&search=high%20output%20alternator )  or Odyssey chargers, (available here: https://ruggedrocksoffroad.com/index.php?route=product/search&search=odyssey%20charger)

It seems too good to be true but here is a bit more info:

Some batteries provide enormous cranking power. Others, deep cycle reserve power. The revolutionary ODYSSEY® battery is designed to do both.

How is this possible? The answer begins with flat plates made of 99.99% pure lead – not lead alloy. Pure lead plates can be made thinner, so we can fit more of them in the battery. More ODYSSEY battery plates mean more plate surface area. And that means more power – twice as much as conventional batteries.

In fact, ODYSSEY batteries are capable of providing engine cranking pulses in excess of 2250 amps for 5 seconds – double to triple that of equally sized conventional batteries, even at very low temperatures. And they can handle 400 charge-discharge cycles to 80% depth of discharge.

This extreme combination of power and performance makes ODYSSEY batteries perfect for a range of applications, including automotive/LTV, marine, commercial, and powersports.
