MIP CVC RC4WD

Our friends over at MIP also know they are a problem so they have announced a new X-Duty C-Drive Kit for the truck. The MIP units are heavy duty and made from steel, making them much stronger than the stock units. MIP’s spline drive technology also allows for them to operate freely even over the roughest of terrain.

The part number for the MIPs is #14260 and they are priced at $80. Get more details by hitting up This Link over on the official MIP website.
