Rightline Gear: Truck Bed Tents

If you have never been truck tent camping before, you’re missing out on something special. Sleep in full comfort, up off the ground, completely dry, no matter the weather. You don’t have to find a flat piece of ground: simply camp wherever your truck can take you! Truck tent camping is enjoyable for anyone with a truck, including weekend warriors, adventurers, hunters, fishermen, and family campers.

The Rightline Gear truck bed tent features a floorless design that allows you to set up and take down the tent without removing your gear from the bed. You will appreciate the time savings when using your truck to get around for the day. If your truck bed is greasy or grimy, you will also appreciate keeping your tent away from that mess. The use of a standard tarp to cover the floor (that can be washed and kept separate from the tent) is a great idea if your truck bed is less than clean.

Set up of the Rightline Gear truck tent is completed with your feet planted firmly on the ground; it is not necessary to enter the tent or to use a stepping stool to reach high poles. The tent is outfitted with (2) gear pockets, a lantern hanging hook, glow-in-the-dark zipper pulls, and a sky view vent.

The Rightline Gear tent completely covers the tailgate of the truck, allowing you to use every inch of available space. All windows and doors have no-see-um mesh and storm covers. Special attention has been paid to achieve a highly water-resistant design to keep you dry.

  • Floorless design allows for set up without removing gear from the bed
  • Protective heavy-duty straps and plastic buckles won’t damage truck’s finish
  • Color-coded poles and pole pockets for quick and easy setup
  • Water-resistant fabric with tape-sealed seams
  • Sky view vent for more light, ventilation, and sleeping under the stars
  • All truck tents sleep (2) adults
  • Includes: tent, rainfly, stuff sack, and sewn-in set-up guide

ReadyLIFT® (49-6407): Jeep JK Wrangler Max Flex System

Increase your off-road capability with ReadyLIFT® Off Road Suspension’s Jeep JK Wrangler Max Flex System! From the trails of Moab and Rubicon to the extreme rock gullies of Big Bear, ReadyLIFT has pounded, thrashed, twisted, and throttled this system to create the absolute best short arm flex kit on the market.

At the heart of the 49-6407 for four-door 2007-2015 Jeep JK Wranglers are beefy Currie Original Johnny Joints®, which offer incomparable articulation. The 4″ front lift and 3″ rear lift are achieved via progressive-wound off-road coil springs. This lift includes heavy-duty, extended-length front and rear sway bar end links that compromise on neither handling nor maximum flexion. Additionally, they include a new rear track bar relocation bracket to aid in correcting important suspension geometry.

Notes:

  • 77-6002 and 77-6003 heavy-duty track bars recommended for correct geometry during suspension flex.
  • Requires longer shocks.
  • Allows for up to 37″ tires when using flat fenders
  • Includes Currie Original Johnny Joints.

AAM GROUP AND TOTAL TRUCK CENTERS BRING TOGETHER AFTERMARKET PARTNERS TO BENEFIT NAVY SEAL FOUNDATION

October 7, 2015 (JOHNSON CITY, Tenn.) — The AAM Group, the largest program distribution group in the SEMA marketplace, is proud to announce NSF1: a fully customized 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited being built to benefit the Navy SEAL Foundation. NSF1 is intended to represent the spirit of the Naval Special Warfare community and features the best products from leading manufacturers within the SEMA accessory aftermarket.

AAM secured commitments from more than two dozen manufacturing partners to purchase the Jeep and outfit it with the latest aftermarket products; the donated accessories showcase the full power of AAM’s Jeep aftermarket lineup. AAM’s Special Markets Manager Greg Griffith oversaw the project’s concept, design and implementation with additional installation help from RPM Offroad (Edelbrock supercharger), Atomic City 4×4 (ring and pinion gears and chromoly axles) and Autopro of Nashville (custom Katzkin leather seat covers and a KICKER audio upgrade).

After completing a national circuit of appearances, NSF1 will be handed over to the nonprofit during a special ceremony at AAM’s 2016 Membership Meeting. The foundation plans to use the vehicle at its various recruitment drives, publicity events and outreach engagements.
