Two Jobs In One
For many of us an optional auxiliary fuel tank is a necessary item for hauling or for work-related ventures. Extra space for your tools or equipment is almost always needed as well. Zylstra Performance Products' new toolbox/fuel tank combo could be just what you are looking for. The box is constructed of marine-grade aluminum, Heliarc-welded, and uses heavy stainless steel hinges and a lock assembly for strength and security.

Increase Your Flow
Increased throttle response and a cool intake sound when you punch the gas are things any enthusiast can appreciate. Just released from aFe Filters is a new cold-air intake system for your '05 Toyota Tacoma V-6 and four-cylinder engines. The new system claims horsepower gains of up to 7hp and is constructed of a 4-inch high-flow conical filter that feeds a free-flowing aluminum tube.

Typhoon Power
Keeping your right foot happy is a crucial element when adding performance modifications to your rig. Professional Products' new Power+Plus Typhoon manifold for your 4.6L 2V Ford V-8 engine brings a number of benefits to your ride. This new lightweight aluminum manifold has been put to the test on the dyno with claims of 20+ horsepower between 5,000 and 6,500 rpm. Another benefit of this product is that it is direct bolt-on equipment and accepts all factory accessories.

Breathable Barrier
After a long day on the trail you stop by the local spray-n-wash to knock off the mud and grime built up from a day of fun. Now it's time to protect the finish of your vehicle while parked in your driveway. Covercraft's new WeatherShield has been manufactured to keep the elements off your vehicle while allowing the material to breathe enough to keep moisture from building up between surfaces. This lightweight cover is available in most popular sizes and easily stores in your lockbox or storage compartment.

100% Monitoring
Stop by your local tire shop and ask the mechanic what he thinks is one of the biggest issues on the road today. Most likely he is going to tell you that people do not check their tire pressure properly or regularly. This results in not only improper wear of tires, but according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an estimated 10,000 traffic deaths per year. Simply remove your valve-stem caps and tighten down the TireWise monitors and your tire pressure will be continually monitored indicating green when properly inflated and red when your tires need attention.

Soak It Up
Now that you have spent half the day removing the pumpkin from your rig, the last thing you want to do is make a mess on your workbench. Don't you wish there was something that you could lay down easily that would soak up all that oil? Mr. Gasket's new Fluid Zap pads are perfect for use on your workbench, under your project vehicle, or even in tight, hard-to-reach places where fluid can spill. They are sold in single pads, sheets, and large rolls, so no workspace is too big or too small.

On The Bottle
When big power is in order, what do you think of? A well-thought-out nitrous system can be beneficial to many kinds of vehicles. Many of us have vehicles that we want to perform not only well in the dirt but also on the road. For those of you who are in need of a quick bottle-changing system, here is your answer. Wilson Manifolds offers the new Nitrous Pro-Flow Wrench System which can swap bottles in seconds.

Double Shifting
Over the past seven years, if you were looking for a twin-stick setup for your early Bronco you probably put in a call to JB Custom Fabrication. Recently, it has increased its product line from early Bronco to Jeep and international vehicles. All the machine work going into the units is done in the United States. The threaded parts of the units are done using a CNC machine with all bends done through a mandrel bender.

Faster Power
RacePumps has a new, adjustable fuel pressure regulator on the market. It allows for a smooth fuel pressure throughout the entire rpm range and flows in excess of 200 gph, which is enough for up to 2,500hp. The valve is made of lightweight ceramic for smoother pressure and other internal components are corrosion-resistant stainless steel for long-term durability and reliability.

Easy Adjustability
Simply and easily dial in your Safety Bellhousing using a pair of these new-style adjustable bellhousing dowel pins from Lakewood Industries. The unique design lets them slip easily into the block and be adjusted using an open-end wrench rather than a screwdriver. This method provides for faster and more precise adjustments. Once they are pointed in the correct direction, a set screw is then tightened which prevents the dowel pin from turning. There is no need to pound the pins in and out, nor is there a need for drilling or tapping.

Illuminating Simplicity
Not everyone wants a heavy-duty front bumper carrying a winch. For those of you in need of something simple and lightweight that has the ability to run your off-road lights, check this out: Rusty's Off-Road offers a new Baja Bar that is designed to be a direct bolt-on bar that still leaves room for your factory towhook points. The current bar is made for '93-'98 ZJ Grand Cherokees with additional vehicle options coming soon.

No More Mess
For decades, many of us have run into the age-old dilemma of a full reservoir and a half-full funnel. ProForm's new No-Mess Funnel has a patented Ball-n-Hook design that shuts off fluid flow when the funnel is lifted, preventing overspills and allowing any excess to be returned to the original container. The shutoff mechanism also permits one-hand operation.
