Superlift Lift Kit
Posted November 1, 2007

How Much Do You Really Need?
When push comes to shove, how much lift height do you really need to achieve your off-road goals? When you know a couple of inches is all you need to tackle your favorite trails, check out Superlift's new '07 Jeep JK 2-inch lift kits for both two- and four-door models. With the new kit installed on your JK, you can safely clear a 33x12.50 tire and even stuff a 35-inch-tall tire with some fenderwell trimming. The kits include bumpstop spacers and optional Superide shocks that improve control and allow 2 extra inches of extension travel.

If you still want a few more inches, then Superlift's new 4-inch kit may be what you're looking for. It uses preset coil springs to clear up to 37x12.50 tires. To control roll and yaw, a front adjustable track bar is included; a relocation bracket is used on the rear track bar. Superide shocks with yellow boots are also included.

Keep Your Goods Secured
Two new security products from Tuffy are now available for the Toyota FJ Cruiser. The new center security console and rear security drawer are both outstanding choices to ensure thieves keep their mitts away from your stuff. The center console provides a comfortable armrest while retaining the factory cupholder, and it allows the driver-side fold-down armrest to still be used. The console features an internal storage tray to keep smaller items separate and has an external tray for sunglasses and loose items.

The rear drawer is completely lockable to store your tools, recovery items, and camping gear. Foldable wings provide a full-width platform on top of the drawer and create hidden storage space for smaller items. The drawer is made of heavy-duty steel with a textured black powdercoat finish. Tuffy's Pry-Guard II locking system, featuring a 10-tumbler, double-bitted lock and heavy-duty latch, keeps the drawer securely closed and locked.

Rock-Free Transmission
Keeping body damage to a minimum is important but not as important as keeping the terrain away from your engine and transmission. Skid Row Offroad is well known for making some of the strongest skidplates on the market today, and the company now offers '07 Jeep JK engine/transmission skidplates. These new skidplates provide protection for the engine, transmission, and exhaust system using 3/16- and 3/8-inch steel construction, and they feature bolt-on installation with no drilling, multistage powdercoating, and the flexibility to work with any short- or long-arm suspension.

A Wise Choice
If you're the proud owner of a '97-'06 Jeep Wrangler model with a Dana 44 front axle, then you're in luck. Pro Comp has just released its new front adjustable track bar for 2- to 5-inch suspension lifts. This adjustable track bar keeps the front axle of a lifted Jeep in the correct location to reduce bumpsteer and to keep the vehicle tracking down the road straight. The JTB403 adjustable front track bar is made of 4130 chrome-moly tubing and features an aircraft-quality, high-angle spherical rod end to allow maximum articulation. Installation of the track bar requires the use of a Pro Comp track-bar relocation bracket and a Pro Comp pitman arm. The combination of these components provides ideal steering geometry with no bumpsteer.
