Stage 8 announces a partnership with the founder of War Paint Offroad, a YouTube channel that demonstrates how to fabricate, build and modify off-road rigs. The channel has more than 10,000 subscribers and over 300 videos, and is highly ranked with over 1.5 million views.

Known as “Dan” to his audience, he takes pride in teaching enthusiasts how to make modifications on a “normal guy’s budget” from his garage. 

Adopting a straight-shooter-style of presenting information mixed with humorous outtakes, Dan is recognized as an authority that promotes only products he believes in, according to a press release.

“We are excited about this partnership,” says owner Bruce Bennett of Stage 8 Locking Fasteners. “Our entry into the off-road segment started with our X-Lock locking spindle nut kit about 10 years ago and we’ve expanded the line with new axle flange locking bolt kits. Most of the products were created for off-roaders who were having bolts back out during racing. Dan will provide us with more connections in this segment and will represent Stage 8 at off-road events throughout the year.”

Dan built and drives his Jeep JKU, called Warpaint, and is building a completely custom 1978 Jeep CJ5 with junkyard 1-ton axles, a custom frame made from a pile of tubing, a Chevy V-8 and a high-performing custom link suspension.

“Stage 8 got my attention when I couldn’t keep axle shafts from loosening up in 14-bolt axles under off-road abuse. I was super-impressed with their zero-failure rate, which instills confidence,” said Dan. “I am very impressed with the quality and Stage 8’s parts speak for themselves the second you hold them in your hand. I’m stoked about this new partnership.” 

Dan is building this vehicle to race it and get his young kids in the driver’s seat on the trails.
