Non Torsion Drop
When lifting an IFS suspension, many companies use drop brackets to lower the torsion bars. This is simple and effective, but it leaves the torsion bars prone to rock hits and trail damage. Rough Country's NTD 6-inch suspension system for the '99-'06 leaves the torsion bars in their stock location and uses Rough Country's exclusive NTD brackets to span the new distance between the torsion bars and the dropped lower control arms. The NTD brackets provide unmatched ground clearance and give a factory look to this lifted suspension system.

Champion One-Piece 'High-Thread' Spark Plug Solves Tuning Challenges On Ford 4.6L, 5.4L and 6.8L Engines
Champion spark plugs now offers a proven problem-solving spark plug design that eliminates an engine tuning issue affecting millions of Ford 4.6L, 5.4L and 6.8L engines.
The Champion Double Platinum Power spark plug utilizes a one-piece "high-thread" design that replaces two-piece original equipment and/or aftermarket plugs utilized in these engines. When servicing the engines, professionals and do-it-yourselfers often find that plugs can separate during removal, potentially leaving the base trapped within the engine's cylinder head. The Champion one-piece design solves this problem.
In addition to its problem-solving design, the new Champion Double Platinum Power plug features an extended ceramic post that virtually eliminates flashover, and an advanced J-gap configuration that is easier to set and helps ensure more efficient ignition performance. Like all premium Champion plugs, the new Double Platinum Power spark plug also features the brand's exclusive Heat-Active alloy, which enables the plug to more quickly reach and maintain the optimum temperature range.

Chevy Slip Yoke Eliminator
What's the best thing to do with a transfer case-mounted slip yoke? Eliminate it! Off Road Ltd/WIB-FAB has come up with a solution to the problematic slip yoke of the Chevy 208 and 241 transfer cases.
The WIB-FAB Chevy slip yoke eliminator kit comes complete with a flanged yoke, retaining bolt, washer, and shaft seal. CV mounting allen head cap screws are also included. The yoke flange will accept CVs using up to 1350 series joints. The transfer case output shaft has to be drilled and tapped when installing this kit.
This kit will allow the use of a rear CV drive shaft thus eliminating the vibration issue most often associated with lifted vehicles with slip-yoke type transfer cases. The conversion also provides peace of mind. If the rear drive shaft becomes damaged it can be removed and the truck can still be driven out on the front drive shaft without losing the t-case fluid. This is impossible with a slip-yoke type transfer case.
Custom drive shafts are available upon request to complete the conversion.
