How many companies do you think supply aftermarket parts for the Jeep segment? We’re going to reference the highly scientific number of “a ton.” From performance upgrades and recovery gear to cosmetic touches and user conveniences, there’s essentially no end in sight regarding modifications available for the nation’s most beloved 4×4. But how many companies do you think are manufacturing outstanding quality replacement parts? Aaand, how many have been doing it consistently since 1963??
That whittled the list down quickly, huh?
Have you met Crown Automotive?
Crown Automotive has been supplying dealers and retailers with OE-grade replacement parts for Jeep, Chrysler, and Dodge vehicles since JFK was still in office. The company built itself up from a little Boston storefront to a leading manufacturer with international warehouses and the largest stock of replacement parts for Jeeps—including those that have been discontinued. In fact, if it weren’t for Crown Automotive, your grandpappy’s Willys Jeep would likely be rusting away in a barn somewhere.
Now, the renowned brand is extending that star power to a new line of accessories and heavy-duty performance parts, RT Off-Road.
Now meet its trademark brand RT Off-Road.
Crown Automotive is all about hard parts—and that means precise, high-quality replacement pieces. RT Off-Road takes things a step further by giving some added flare and function to Jeep-specific upgrades. The brand serves the Jeep community in two primary ways: accessories and performance parts.
RT Off-Road offers accessories for nearly every square inch of a Jeep, both inside and out. From soft tops, bumpers, and LED lighting to trailer hitches, wheel accessories, and stainless-steel touches, RT Off-Road brings a new level of excitement and quality to both old and new fans of mother company Crown Automotive.
The products getting our attention lately? Bumpers. RT Off-Road offers a full line of aftermarket Jeep bumpers, including tubular, rock crawler, and heavy-duty options. Featuring a quality steel construction with black powder coat finish, many of them mount directly into factory holes, requiring no drilling or cutting. Several configurations are available, including variants with integrated D-Ring mounts, hitch receivers, tire carriers, and winch or light mounts.
There is truly an option for every style of Jeep and every style of Jeep owner. And since they’re part of the Crown Automotive legacy, you can rest assured that they’ll actually be able to, you know, absorb a bump.
Making a Jeep look the part is one thing, making it walk the walk is quite another entirely. Superficial mods are where many run-of-the-mill accessory suppliers draw the line. RT Off-Road however, isn’t afraid to dive into the guts of the Jeep and tackle the parts needed for a high-quality performance upgrade.
Among the brand’s performance-minded offerings are upgraded axles, transmission parts, exhaust header kits, engine valve covers, and a variety of suspension components. Dive through what RT Off-Road has in stock and you’re sure to find everything you need to elevate your Jeep to its true off-road potential.
There are some flashier mods tucked in there for the Jeep Junkies as well, including products to sweeten that exhaust note or mild lift kits to gain a more aggressive stance. Overall however, RT Off-Road adopts a form follows function approach, meaning your upgrades will look sharp—but they’ll perform even better. And really, when you’re out crawling rocks or blasting dunes, isn’t that what you want? You don’t dominate the game for five decades to offer something simply “pretty.”
Get Thee to a Dealer
If you find yourself itching to browse some RT Off-Road parts for your Jeep, here’s a helpful heads up: RT (like Crown Automotive) does not sell directly to the public. So while you can’t find prices on the company’s website, you can find a detailed list of all the authorized dealers near you. Take advantage of this setup and use it as an opportunity to consult with a qualified professional about your Jeep mods. Shopping from home in your pajamas has its advantages, but when it comes to a important purchase like outfitting your off-road rig, you want that in-store experience.
