New Mud Friends
All-terrain tires are great, but when the mud comes calling you need something with a more aggressive tread pattern to enjoy the fun. Dick Cepek introduces the Mud Country: an aggressive mud-terrain radial in specialty light truck and traditional light truck sizing. This tire is a great choice for enthusiasts seeking aggressive off-road traction and excellent handling on the street. The Mud Country has three-ply sidewalls for added toughness and a unique, boulder-like stepped tread design to disperse mud and rocks. The new tire comes in 24 sizes from 31 to 40 inches tall in rim diameters up to 20 inches to fit almost every light truck application.

A New Boss in Air Compression
Onboard air systems have become extremely popular in the last couple of years for situations when carrying just an air tank is not enough. The systems are often used to run air lockers or power air tools for trailside repairs. Kilby Enterprises, maker of the popular OnBoard Air system for Jeep Wrangler, Dodge, and Chevrolet vehicles, announces its new AirBoss beltdriven air compressor system for '03-and-later Chevrolet and GMC pickups and SUVs. The KE-4500-K AirBoss kit features the venerable York beltdriven high-output compressor (3 to 4 cfm at idle; 7 to 8 cfm at 2,000 rpm) and everything needed to install the system. The AirBoss is also ideal for vehicles equipped with airbag suspensions, and it fills a 2.5-gallon air tank in less than 30 seconds (with the engine at 2,000 rpm).

Keep Your Arms in Shape
Manufacturers don't always equip our vehicles for the adventures we take them on. Often stock parts get worn out simply because you cannot properly service them. Jeepin' By Al has just released a replacement option for the nonserviceable upper A-arms and ball joints on your Jeep Liberty KJ vehicle.
The arms are held in place at the factory mounting points and use the original equipment (OE) bushings for quiet operation, and the ball joints can be greased and are easily replaced should they wear out. These A-arms address the OE A-arm contact with the spring, which causes premature ball joint failure on lifted Libertys. In addition, the race-inspired, redesigned Jeepin' By Al A-arms reposition the ball joint, eliminating the adverse angle seen with the OE arm/OE ball joint on lifted Libertys.
The Jeepin' By Al upper A-arms are compatible with all the major lift kits on the market. Currently, these A-arms are only available for Liberty vehicles that have been lifted, but original equipment replacements are forthcoming. For more information, contact: Jeepin' By Al, www.jeepinbyal.com.
