Hauk Designs has been hard at work on a 6×6 Dodge Truck that they are building for Pitbull Tires to display in their SEMA booth. This vehicle is getting a ’94-’01 RAM 2500 BDS Long Arm kit in the front and Jeep JK rear long arms in the build up.

They have completely tore this thing apart. They took most of the original vehicle off and will not be putting it back on. They kept half the frame and the engine transmission, that’s about it.

Now this is a very cool build, but it did not come so easily. One of the biggest challenges that the crew at Hauk Designs had was figuring out that center axle. The crew tried a few different things from using a two piece drive shaft and double transfer cases, but to be able to drive this thing at highway speeds is not easy. That center axle is a key piece and it has to be done just right for this thing to run properly. Luckily these guys know what their doing. This isn’t the first 6×6 that these guys have done. They built their first one a while back as a request for one of their overseas clients.

Check out Episode 1 and 2 of the build series and keep up on whats new by following Gearwench and Hauk Designs on Facebook.

Jeep JK Fox 2.0 High Mount Steering Stabilizer

BDS Suspension now offers high mount Fox 2.0 single steering stabilizer kits for 2007-2016 Jeep Wrangler JK. This is the newest addition to the BDS/FOX 2.0 Performance Steering Stabilizer line offering improved drivability by eliminating the front end shimmy caused by oversized tires hitting imperfections in the road and/or trail. This steering stabilizer is designed to bolt directly on any BDS 4” lift or higher that utilizes the BDS axle track bar relocation bracket.  This bracket already has a high-mount steering stabilizer tab that positions the new stabilizer over the top of the tie rod.  For those vehicles that do not have a BDS track bar bracket installed, the 55376 high-mount bracket kit will be required.  This bracket kit relocates the stabilizer to the top of the tie rod and includes both a new axle and tie rod bracket.  The 55376 bracket kit can be used with other brand steering stabilizers as well to move the stabilizer into a high-mount position.

For more information on these lines and other Jeep Wrangler JK products, head online to BDS Suspension or call (517) 279-2135.

Important Kit Notes:
1) Must use #55376 mounting kit unless installed with existing BDS track bar bracket integrated high-mount stabilizer location.
2) 4″+ lift required to install high-mount stabilizer.
