The ingenuity of DirectDrive lies in its novel solution.

Why use DirectDrive?

Space Efficient

Space constraints with the left-hand PTO on 4×4 Ford trucks have long been a frustration for engineers and upfitters. DirectDrive technology is the perfect solution. The plug-and-play Transfer Case trade-out opens a world of possibilities with an extended PTO shaft design.

Power Delivered

With the space restrictions solved, the only remaining power limit is the horsepower that can be produced by a transmission. DirectDrive technology optimizes this power in a low maintenance design that allows you to install as large a hydraulic pump, generators, air compressor, vacuum pump, blower, as the transmission can handle. This is huge! Turn your truck into a power center that was formerly a wistful dream.

Convenient & Painless Installation

We’ve been at this for over a decade and the consistent comment we get is how perfect & painlessly the DirectDrive components slipped into place. We’ve honed the process to perfection, with everything you need ‘on a silver platter’. From the ease of ordering, to the way it’s packaged to the install directions, it’s a cinch. Any mechanic with a skill set can install a DirectDrive Kit in less than 4 hours*. When you are finished, simply return the OEM unit in the packaging. It’s almost too good to be true!

*Time varies with skill level and application details.

Custom Engineered to Ford & RAM

DirectDrive for Ford is called LiveDrive 4×4 Plus, and for RAM it’s called RAMDrive 4×4 Plus. Each product line is specifically designed to absolutely optimize the system it is installed in.


Rest assured, you’re covered. The DirectDrive warranty is an exact match to the original factory warranty. You’ll basically never know the difference. In the rare case of a warranty claim event, we are committed to ensuring the process is as efficient and painless as possible, getting you back running in record time.
