Gear Up For An Exciting New Career!

Supporting Make-A-Wish as a Wish Hero

The Gear Centre Group of companies is a proud supporter of Make-A-Wish Northern Alberta, which is why we jumped at the opportunity to be a Wish Hero for the month of April. We’re striving to raise $2500 as a Wish Hero, to help grant the wishes of every eligible child. The Gear Centre Group of companies will also match donations raised, dollar for dollar up to $2500. The goal is to grant 1600 wishes across Canada, with 230 wishes in Alberta.

Every dollar helps and will go towards making wishes come true for local children with critical illnesses. More wishes are waiting than ever before and we’re hoping to make more wishes possible.

If you can, please help by donating today!

Pat’s Driveline Custom-Built Driveshaft for Upgraded Jeep Wrangler 4xe

At Pat’s Driveline we’re honored to have one of our custom-built driveshafts used in a new Jeep Wrangler 4xe modified by Epic Adventure Outfitters in the following YouTube video. This is one of the first lifted, plug in hybrid electric 4x4s we’ve come across, and are excited we had the opportunity to contribute to the modifications.

Our Surrey, British Columbia, location built a custom driveshaft to Epic Adventure Outfitters specifications which included a double cardan CV joint and a greaseable slip yoke, both with forged u-joints. We strongly recommend checking out Epic Adventure Outfitters video below on the Jeep Wrangler 4xe’s features and their modifications!

If you’re rebuilding a 4×4 off-road vehicle for the trails this summer, we can help ensure that you have the best driveshaft and driveshaft components for your custom ride. If we don’t have the specific driveshaft you require ready-to-go, our driveshaft experts can help you shorten, lengthen, rebalance or otherwise modify your driveshaft, or build a brand new driveshaft for your rig. Contact Pat’s Driveline for more information on how we can build a custom driveshaft for you!

Pat’s Driveline boasts an impressive inventory at all our locations across Canada to ensure that you can fearlessly hit the trails. We stock the best aftermarket brands such as Spicer, Neapco, and Quality Gear. Click here to see our automotive products.

Supplying PPE Kits for Commercial Truck Drivers

“This event has truly been a group effort, coming together quickly thanks to the efforts of all involved. We all know drivers are essential to our supply chain and although they have been hauling throughout the COVID-19 pandemic for weeks now, we need to continue to support them, and most importantly keep them safe,” says Chris Nash, president of the Alberta Motor Transport Association (AMTA).
