AEV Procal for Dodge Ram

July 18, 2017

AEV's ProCal Module for 2013+ Ram 1500/2500/3500 trucks is a user-friendly recalibration tool that has a variety of unique features. One of the most popular features of the ProCal Module is its ability to correct the speedometer when larger tires (up to 48” tall) are installed. When the speedometer is left uncorrected, there is a major degradation in the performance of the stability control (ESP), transmission shifting, and engine performance – the ProCal Module will eliminate these issues by ensuring that the vehicle is properly calibrated.

Additionally, the ProCal Module is the only product of its kind that allows the user to recalibrate the TPMS system for larger diameter tires that have a lower inflation pressure than the stock tires – a common scenario that would otherwise lead to an annoying low tire pressure warning light. The ProCal will also recalibrate for axle gear ratio changes, allow users to turn the truck’s one-touch lane change feature on or off and determine whether or not the fog lights turn off or stay on with the high beams (for off-road use only).

The ProCal Module is equipped with a series of easy-to-use DIP switches. By reading the simple instructions included with the ProCal module, the user can quickly dial in a code for the desired recalibration. The entire process can be completed in mere minutes – once the switches are set, simply plug the ProCal Module into the vehicle's OBDII and wait for the horn to honk, confirming that the setting has taken effect.

Key Features:

• Compatible with 2013+ Ram 1500/2500/3500 trucks
• Easy to use DIP switches
• Recalibrate speedometer for larger tires (up to 48" tall)
• Recalibrate TPMS*
• Axle gear ratio recalibration (3.21-4.88)
• Turn one-touch lane change on/off
• Turn fog lights with high beams on/off (off-road use only)
• Optimizes ESP performance
• Will not interfere with most performance modules or tuners

Please note:
A visit to your local Jeep Dealership, or Murchison Products Workshop and use of the WiTech diagnostic tool is required to complete this procedure. Although your TPMS screen will show the new values, it will not “take” and stop blinking until your dealership completes the process.
This is the because the Ram ECU's come 'locked' from the factory and is due to Fiat Chrysler (owner of Jeep and Dodge) wanting to stop consumers going for aftermarket ECU modifications and tunes.

Storm Trooper JK Wants You To Feel The Force

June 20, 2017

Voltron Motors wants to build you a Jeep Wrangler worthy of the most menacing stormtrooper. In case you aren't sure you need one, the company even has a commercial with Tyrese Gibson to convince you.

Texas-based Volton builds a range of restyled Wranglers with names like Rebel, Anvil and Full Metal Jacket, with a range of features and prices available on request. The Intimidator edition, for example, starts at around $60,000.

These mean machines not only have the incredible appearance package, LED lights and monster wheels, Voltron even adds power-extending running boards and an optional power pack that boosts the Wrangler's engine by 60 horsepower.

Inside, look for diamond-stitched custom leather upholstery, add-on seat heaters and coolers, and video displays for the back seat in the front-seat head rests.

The awesome stormtrooper-like white-and-black paint scheme isn't the only finish that is available. Voltron's site even shows an unfortunate pink example that we'll pretend they didn't build for an insistent customer. We'll just focus on this incredible machine in white.

PX Ranger Commander Bar

September 27, 2016

Uneek 4x4 has an awesome bull bar for your Ford Ranger that turns it into a true Command Vehicle.

Uneek bull bars are designed by engineers who actually drive off road regularly. They do not design our bars to look the same across the vehicle range, following a design style that has been used for decades like most of their competition. Nor do they copy other manufacturers. Uneek fully develop their own product to individually suit that vehicle - taking time in designing from scratch and then test all our bars to comply with all relevant ADRs and Australian Standards.

On 2011 - 2015 PX Rangers this is a complete bumper replacement with no cutting of the factory bumper
On 2016 - Current PX Rangers the bumper is not cut but the grill is trimmed

Two heavy duty 20mm tow hooks (red) are supplied as standard. The Fascia Panels come powder coated black as standard but can be changed to brushed stainless, powder coated another colour, or even colour coded to the vehicle. The full bar can be colour coded to vehicle as well.

Most low profile winches such as the Runva 11XP can be mounted with ease. We are able to supply a special fit version of Runva's 11XP Premium Black Edition winch, please contact us for more details.

Uneek 4x4 WG / WJ Grand Cherokee Winch Bar

Murchison WK2 Grand Cherokee Snorkel

November 6, 2014

UPDATE - 11-3-15!!!!!
**************We have had the 1st couple of production rotor moulded parts come in to us from manufacturing but there are a few small inclusions in the product that we want rectified before making more, the mould is about to make a quick road trip again to have the touch ups done and then we should be right for full production late March early April. We know and realise this snorkel has been in the pipeline for some time now but the wait will be worth it!*********

It’s been a long time coming but we’re finally here. The new Murchison WK2 Snorkel is in full production now and we expect the parts to be available to us late March early April 2015, all made right here in Australia. We have deleted the recess for the indicator as it will make the fitment more streamlined with the 2014 onwards models, and have replaced it with the Murchison Logo. It will come as a complete kit ready to fit including a template for the whole trimming into the guard. We have drawn heavily on a design focus with this snorkel to compliment the shape and lines of the WK2, and not distort it, all the while maintaining a high level of airflow and compatibility. Final fitment inside the engine bay is factory like in appearance.

As the official pre-release for the snorkel we are offering people the chance to lock in for the price of $695AU for the kit, with a 50% deposit (fitting extra, pls call or email) with an expected RRP of $795AU. Murchison Products are proud to be supporting the local manufacturing Australian economy with this project which keeps jobs right here in Australia and also creates opportunities for us to develop future products for the KL Cherokee and more.
***Pls note the pre release price is not available through 3rd party or trade customers, it is only for snorkels sold or installed directly through Murchison Products*****

All the best
Stu Murchison

4x4 Australia Magazine and Tuning CRD's

October 9, 2014

Well a few months have rushed by but the land of Jeep never seems to slow down.

The New Cherokee is on sale and slowly gaining momentum, Jeep have announced that the new 3.0 V6 diesel is most likely to see out the current shape Wrangler in the 2017 era and possibly a new 7 seat Grand Cherokee. Workshop builds never stop here and we’ve put out quite a few absolutely awesome JK and WK2 builds. It’s good to see the slow but steady resurgence of the TJ’s too with a couple of project cars getting around our shop, and something new that has taken us by surprise is a full ground up restoration project for an existing customer for his 1979 Cj-7 complete with its original 304 AMC V8 !! What a beast this thing is going to be.

If you follow us on Facebook (highly advisable!) you’d notice a few new Mazda BT-50 and Ford Rangers through the shop of late – don’t be alarmed we’re not turning into one of those mass marketed franchise “we do everything 4x4 and more” type shops (god no!) but we are embarking on a lot more in the way of complete ECU rewrite programing for the late model Diesels which includes all of the 2011 onwards Jeep CRD’s in Both Wrangler and Grand Cherokee. The new CRD’s have a lot of anti-hacking software and protocols on board which means you cannot simply “OBD 2 Flash” the ECU via the OBD2 port underneath the dash, these new ones require complete ECU removal and minor surgery to open up and hard wire into ect – commonly referred to as “ Bench Flashing”. We’re still fine tuning the 2011 to current WK2’s and the 2011 to current JK CRD files are ready to go – exact same process for each. Give us a call to discuss further and finally we’ve just featured our Black WK2 in this month’s issue of 4x4 Australia Magazine. (see here)

Lastly, I’d just like to let you all know that my original Employee no.1 Carl has had to leave us as he’s heading down south to Melbourne with his partner due to her job change. Carl has been a great asset to us and we’ll all miss him – some of you certainly know Carl too!
We wish Carl and he’s partner Inara all the best in their ventures down in Melbourne.

So for the moment that’s it from us and I’ll report back soon on my (upcoming November) trip to Moab Utah with the Crew from AEV on a 4 day expedition driving the latest Hemi powered JKs and the mighty Brute Double Cab Ute, ahhh work’s tough sometimes but some of us have to do it J

Best Regards

Happy Easter from Murchison Products

April 16, 2014

Well the 4WD show has been and gone for 2014, yet another whirl wind event for us. So much preparation, so little time but in the end was well worth it. We invited up Dave from Uneek 4x4 in Melbourne to join us on our stand with his Rubicon JKU fully equipped with the Uneek line up. Uneek’s new Roof Rack was a huge hit. Very functional, super lightweight and strong, the Uneek rack addresses the issue that the other “Expedition Roof Top Cage” style systems seem to have and Dave gives it a crack free lifetime warranty! We were super impressed as were the public. We also had our fully equipped WK2 Grand Cherokee on display along with our prototype WK2 snorkel which is to be released some time late this year. Our Dozer JKU complete with AEV gear on board and our new TJ Brute Trayback Conversion named the “Stockman” was on display and a huge hit!

With the main show for the year out of the way and the cooler months’ starting to come in, its now time for us to hit the trails, so keep an eye out for our customer runs coming up in May and July. You can keep track of our runs currently through the Ausjeepoffroad forum in the “Organise a trip in your State” section, click on Queensland and follow the links.

Till then, Happy Easter and enjoy your break!
