Quadratec and Tread Lightly!Quadratec and Tread Lightly! Announce Stewardship Grant Fund

Quadratec Inc. unveiled its 50 Cleanups in 50 States Stewardship Grant Fund in partnership with Tread Lightly!, an organization whose mission is to protect and enhance recreation access by promoting outdoor ethics.

The ‘50-for-50’ program will fully support one stewardship project in each state over the next 24 months that enhances or improves off-road or public land access. The ’50-for-50’ stewardship grant fund will help project managers pay for equipment, fees, volunteer support, food, fuel, signage and other miscellaneous costs.

Quadratec worked with industry partners Tread Lightly! and the Bureau of Land Management to launch the program during the recent Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah — funding a work project on Kane Creek Trail that enacted protective buck-and-rail fencing around an important historical petroglyph site.

AWE SteedaAWE Teams Up With Steeda for Law Enforcement Mustang

AWE has teamed up with Mustang specialists, Steeda, to outfit a vehicle from the local Valdosta Police Department in Georgia.

At its core, the Mustang began as a standard ’21 GT with the 10R80 10-speed transmission that received a major overhaul in the performance department—from suspension, chassis, wheel, tire and powertrain upgrades.

Amongst the list of modifications resides the AWE Touring Edition Catback Exhaust with quad 4-in. tips in diamond black, which features AWE’s patented drone-canceling solution, 180 Technology to ensure a drone-free experience through the entire rev range.
