I'll tell you a story!

« on: June 18, 2012, 10:01:51 PM »

About a year ago Rugged Rocks was neck deep in all kinds of new product projects, and over the last year, one by one, new products were released and the list of open projects grew shorter and shorter. Progress!! Below is an updated list of products that were either new last year or were in progress. As you can see the number of open products has shrunk to just a few. Rugged Rocks has always been enthusiast driven and once again needs your input push the Nissan 4x4 aftermarket forward even further. What do you guys need for your trucks? Lets talk about it on the message board and get the ball rolling on some new products.
I really appreciate everyone's input and everyone's business.
Lets keep it going.

Rugged Rocks Winch Fairlead

pre-'05 Xterra / Frontier / Pathfinder - H233B 33-Spl Lockright LockerPowertrax (maker of lock right lockers) was sold off by Richmond Gear (Previous owner of Powertrax) to Midwest Truck and auto Parts Who has no idea what happened to this project, and the parts I sent into them were lost. The project has vanish into a puff of smoke and probably will not be happening. However, I have mentioned to Randy's Ring and Pinion that they should make a 33-spline version of their 31-spline locker (similar to lockright) as is available here:  http://ruggedrocksoffroad.com/nissan-patrol-spartan-locker-by-randys-ring-pinion-h233b-31spline-p-36117.html

Advanced Adapters - 4 Cyl Pathfinder / Hardbody Atlas Adapter
           
Have tried having AA make this but it hasn't happened.
           I can have the proper spud shaft made elsewhere to complete the 4cyl kit but I haven't due to lack of demand. If you are interested in this, please speak up!

Would still like to see a rear disk brake conversion for 33spline front Frontier and Xterra.

The Xterra comunity seems to be gravitating towards you. I was wondering if you would consider carrying smaller ticket items like wheel spacers or suspension components.

I'll see what I can do on the wheel spacers.

What are you refering to specifically when it comes to suspension?
I really try not to step on PRG Greg's toes but if there is something he is missing for the second gen trucks, I'll check into it and run it by Greg.

Thanks for the input!

I see what you mean. Greg's a great guy and working with him is a great idea. Shoot, I have all of his gear going on my X.
     On a selfish note. Since locking, I'd like to see 4:10 gears for the R180. I have no idea what the market would be, but I would be willing to do what ever it takes to help.
     If it helps, I have a complete r180 3:13 and a carrier for a 3:69 and up r180 that I'd be willing to donate for mock ups.

Penski,
3.73 gears for the front probably aren't going to happen.
The Simple way to put it is, Superior is basically done making stuff for Nissan.

Toro,
The 4.10's for the front were never made or even attempted becuase the R180 has so many failures. We feel that the deeper gears would just put added stress on the housing that is can't really take.

Thanks for the input though guys.
Keep it coming.

The last project was an insane amount of stress and now they are sitting on gears.

00-04 xterra sas kit?

00-04 xterra steering system
(i'm running total chaos system now, but would have liked options other than their $1200 kit, plus i think they're missing stuff from the kit that i may fab myself this winter)

98-04 pathfinder 1" strut spacers
(i can supply you with a set i had custom made if you require templates)

O2 sensor check engine light eliminators (seems like a easy up-sell to go with the doug thorleys)

I'll keep my thinking cap on...
