  • Jeep Wrangler is Becoming a Mainstream Passenger Vehicle

    When the 2007 Jeep JK two-door Wrangler and four-door Wrangler Unlimited were introduced, Dynatrac immediately recognized that the new vehicle would fill a niche between the outgoing TJ Wrangler model and the wildly popular, but discontinued (and sorely missed) XJ Cherokee model. But the JK intrigue actually attracted more than just off-road enthusiasts and diehard Jeep owners – a whole new breed of customers to the Jeep brand and the aftermarket parts industry helped increase the sales volume of the Jeep Wrangler to nearly that of mainstream cars. In fact, FCA has sold approximately four times as many Wranglers each year as it has Chrysler 300s, and Wrangler annual sales have been roughly equal to that of the Chevrolet Malibu.* Continue reading

  • Jeep Wrangler JL Transfer Case Modification

    The 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL has many great, new features. It may be the most-capable Jeep Wrangler ever made. We dove right into this new model and built the first JL on 42s, named CODE1. Through our series of modifications which included Dynatrac ProRock axles and 42-inch tall tires, we ran across a situation where the transfer case may refuse to shift; specifically when the front axle is replaced with one that does not have front-axle disconnect (FAD).

    The Jeep JL is equipped with a Magna transfer case. The transfer case uses a synchronizer to smooth shifts between high-range and low-range. Ironically, components of this synchronizer seem to be what keep the transfer case from shifting in certain situations. Continue reading

  • Dynatrac CODE1 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Build

    We are proud to introduce you to the Dynatrac CODE1 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL project. The concept for this vehicle was to create an iconic overlanding vehicle that is extremely capable as a rock crawler.

    We wanted to set the bar extremely high, using 42-inch tall Maxxis tires and changing the body from a 4-door to create a long-wheelbase, 2-door with lots of cargo space behind the front seats. To make the project even more challenging, we built it in just eight days!

    The idea for this build started with Tony Carvallo, who now works for us at Dynatrac, and Fred Williams at Dirt Every Day. Before Tony joined Dynatrac, he worked at FCA as the Product Planner for the JL. They wanted to be the first to build a JL on 42s, and the vision for this build evolved over time. Continue reading

  • Lance Clifford Chose Dynatrac to Eliminate Axle Worries

    Lance Clifford, founder of pirate4x4.com, has built a lot of 4x4s over the years. From Toyota pickups to race rigs, along with his fair share of Jeeps. When he decided to build his current Jeep JK, the one thing he had learned from all of those other 4x4s was to make the drivetrain bulletproof.

    “I wanted it to not break down. Ever,” Lance said, “I wanted to be able to do any trail in comfort and know that I can get my wife and kids back to the camper at the end of the day.” Continue reading

  • All-New DHD Drag Link Sleeve™ from Dynatrac

    The all-new DHD Drag Link Sleeve™ from Dynatrac replaces the Jeep Wrangler JK adjustment sleeve on the drag link, a weak component that is prone to failure on lifted Jeeps. The DHD Drag Link Sleeve provides more length, more adjustment and is more than twice as strong as the factory sleeve. The DHD Drag Link Sleeve is made in the USA. Continue reading

  • New 40-Spline DynaLoc™ Hub

    The new DynaLoc™ 40-spline hub from Dynatrac brings complete hub-to-hub 40-spline strength to ProRock XD60™ and ProRock 80™ front axles. The Dynatrac DynaLoc hub design has stood apart from competitors since it was introduced in 2006, boasting more strength and unique features than any locking hub in the past 35 years. Dynatrac’s new 40-spline version sets new benchmarks for strength and durability, and further widens the lead DynaLoc locking hubs have over other brands. DynaLoc hubs are 100 percent made in the USA. Continue reading

  • Dynatrac™ was Created Out of a Need for Quality Off-Road Axles

    If you’re building a Jeep or other 4x4 for off-roading, you probably know the name Dynatrac™ and associate it with big, beefy, high-quality axle assemblies. But there wasn’t always a Dynatrac offering alternatives to junkyard rebuilds of Dana 44 and Dana 60 axles with patented, unique drivetrain products designed specifically for the way you use your vehicle off road. The company had very humble beginnings. A man with a need and a drive to offer something better than what was available. Continue reading
