5 Cool Jeep Products Seen At 2016 Easter Jeep Safari #EJS2016Posted in Moab Experience: 2016 on March 24, 2016
Jeepers are always looking for the next best thing to try on their Jeep. Who can blame us? We all want the newest and best equipment and accessories we can possibly find to make our Jeeps all they can be. Every year at Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah, manufacturers reveal new products. We cruised the vendor display and found five items we think you’ll be interesting in checking out further.
Evo Manufacturing has just introduced a pneumatically operated front anti-sway bar quick-disconnect system for the Jeep JK. This module from Evo is a direct replacement for the factory electric system, and is operated by a single switch that turns on an air compressor to feed the Evo anti-sway bar disconnect system. It’s a quick and positive disconnect and re-connect, and its fail mode is connect, so you don’t have to worry about limping home with no anti-sway bar functionality.
Aluminum is the wave of the future for automotive bodies, and it’s extremely beneficial to the Jeep enthusiast. Aluminum doesn’t rust, and it’s lighter in weight than steel. Aqualu was showing its all-aluminum cab and front clip sections for the two-door JK at the 2016 Easter Jeep Safari, and it’s much better in real life than the photograph shows.
Fabtech has all kinds of good things going on, and manufactures suspension components and systems for everything from Ford, GM, Dodge, Ram, Toyota, and Nissan vehicles. However, they have jumped into the Jeep market head first with an entire catalog of suspension lift systems, springs, and shocks. One of those new items that we really liked was the Fabtech 3- and 5-inch long arm suspension lift systems for the Jeep JK, highlighted by a control arm joint that is rated at being capable of standing five tons of force.
The Performance Steering Components (PSC) Jeep JK Cylinder Assist Kit can seriously beef up the factory steering system on your Jeep JK. The kit includes a bolt-on cylinder assist bracket, a new JK steering gear with PSC Superflow Tower, a new high-flow CBR pump with pulley, remote reservoir with filter, and as an option, you can also get a single-pass cooler kit.

These super heavy-duty ball joint sets from Synergy Manufacturing are the cat’s meow for the serious Jeeper. They are designed to replace the factory ball joints that are prone to premature wear on lifted vehicles. The metal on metal design features a machined bearing housing made from sintered graphite, bronze, and 1045 steel. The Synergy heavy-duty single ball joint sets include uppers and lowers, while complete sets include two single sets, and high-performance (4119) grease recommended for this product.
