Poison Spyder Dana 44 Bombshells Are BACK!!

More specifically, NEW and IMPROVED Dana 44 Bombshells are back! They're thicker, stronger, better looking. Check out the website page for all the info on them. These can be bought directly from us or from any of our Authorized Poison Spyder dealers (you might actually beat some of them to this info LOL)



Its been a long process, so we've held back on talking much about them until they were actually here, on the shelf and ready to ship. And that is indeed the case! The only delay is for powder coat, so if you want yours coated allow an extra week as we JUST got these in and are sending a batch over to coating as we speak. WOOHOO!!! Bombshells are BACK!!



Here are a few photos of them bare. We'll be getting some coated and mounted up soon, so we'll have some installed photos to post up shortly. Thanks everyone for your patience with these!





IMPORTANT FITMENT INFORMATION FOR OWNERS OF JK RUBICONS WITH STOCK TRACK BARS:

We have been hearing from several owners of stock JK Rubicons that their stock front track bar is contacting the Dana 44 Bombshell at full suspension compression. The stock track bar has a tight U-shaped bend in it, which just clears the stock diff cover at full suspension compression. We designed the Bombshell using Chrysler's 3D CAD models of the JK, and it was a close fit there but everything looked like it was going to clear. The weird thing is it seems to just miss the track bar on some stock JK's, but hits on some. We've learned over the years that often there can be variances in some dimensions from Jeep to Jeep, and that may be the case here. At any rate, the bottom line is that we can NOT recommend the Dana 44 Bombshell for the front of JK Rubicons with the stock track bar.

Most aftermarket suspension systems for the JK include a replacement track bar that does not have that funky U-bend, and therefore do not have this potential problem. Note that the problem is not remedied specifically by a certain amount of lift. A "Budget Boost" or leveling kit won't alleviate it, since the stock track bar is still there and the upper travel limit has not changed. A bumpstop spacer might help but we have not tried that in the shop. So for now our recommendation is to only install it on JK Rubicons with an aftermarket suspension system with an aftermarket track bar.

We haven't heard any feedback on this issue yet here on this board, however if you have experienced it and would like to speak with our sales department about a return/refund or some other remedy, please give us a call at 951-849-5911. Likewise, if you have already purchased the D44 Bombshell but have not installed it yet, and wish to return it due to this new information, please give us a call and we will make those arrangements. We apologize for any frustration this may have caused for any of you who have already installed this item and experienced this issue.

Awesome looking covers. If I wasn't planning on installing OX lockers I'd be picking up a set. Would be nice if they had a drain plug, but still another great product.

I like them, funny I was just looking yesterday for a cover on the 44 and went to your website first. I was disappointed when I only saw a D30 and other over on there.

Yeah I'm sure we lost a few people by taking so long to get these revamped and back on the market. Sorry about that wait!

Assuming you're talking about the D44 version (D30's not out yet): $119 for the bare Bombshell, $19.50 shipping to a residential address in your zip code. Thanks!

How about some more customer photos. Some of you guys are getting pretty creative on painting your Bombshells

This one's from Kelli Jennings Regis:


How about this one from Kenneth Bernhardt:


Here's one I spotted on a customer's rig who was visiting the shop:


This one's from Renee Holland Shewfelt:


Here's one from Allen Hughes:


Here's one we put on here at the shop. Even the single-color black powder coat looks nice!


Here's Kenton York's matching set of D30 and D44 Bombshells:


Joe Coffman went with green for the Spyder:


Takafumi Hori from Japan also went with green but added red inside the Spyder. Sweet!


These Japanese guys have a theme going...Kazutoshi Furuhashi also painted the inside of his silver Spyder red:


Let's see yours!
