Product Reviews

  1. kraken makes the most durable cages

    Posted by david miller on Sep 11th 2015

    I received my sx5 sidewinder and was amazed at the quality of Kraken instantly. The scale look and durability after several roll overs on cement, grass, dirt, etc. has left me with a great looking and well made American cage. Do yourself a favor and make that Baja look it's best as well as protect it!!

  2. Awesome Sand Rail Kit!

    Posted by Jon S. on May 12th 2015

    Very happy with the purchase of my SX5. The quality is superb and the fit and finish is of the best quality. Feel tough and if it's as good as the durability of my CL1TSK, I am happy man. The price tag may seem a little high but once you get your hands on this baby, you will know why! No regrets and highly, highly recommended! Might just get another one for the next build ;-)
