Amsoil XL Synthetic Oils
Amsoil has reformulated its XL extended-life motor oils to meet more stringent ILSAC GF-5 and API SN service categories. This means you can go longer between oil changes. Four viscosities are available.
•Extra alkaline additives neutralize acids and increases resistance to shearing.
•Oil change interval is 10,000 miles or six months, whichever comes first.

Badlands Bumpers
The Basher is named from an incident in which a Badlands Bumper customer accidentally hit a deer. The bumper survived with no damage. Unfortunately, the deer didn't fare so well. The primary structure is made using 0.120-inch-wall DOM tubing, and all tube ends are capped for superior corrosion resistance.
•Available for '79-to-'04 Toyota pickups and '84-to-'02 Toyota 4Runners. The bumper can be ordered with or without an upper hoop.
•An undrilled light mounting plate is included and installed. This allows customers to mount the lights exactly where they want them. D-ring mounts and a winch mount are standard.

Hesco Oil Pump Saves Distributor Gears
New EPA mandates are forcing oil companies to remove additive such as zinc and phosphorus. With these additives eliminated, it's more and more common for the distributor drive gear and its matching camshaft gear to prematurely wear on Jeep 4.0L inline-six engines. Hesco's new M167HVT oil pump provides a specific oil stream to supply the gears with a constant stream of oil.
•Worn distributor gears and camshaft gears are sure to be a thing of the past.
•Oil pump is a high-volume pump that's blueprinted for superior quality assurance. Oil pan internal baffle mods are required on pre-'00 engines so the larger pump body can clear the baffle.
