Perkins Ranger Bumper

If you’ve got a late-model Ford Ranger and you want an alternative to a prerunner-style front bumper, Perkins Performance demands a look.

  • Heavy-duty construction, bolt-on installation, adds ground clearance and makes more room for oversized tires

  • Integrated winch mount, recessed fog-light sockets, three-stage powdercoat. This is a heavy-duty, fullsize-worthy bumper that’s built to fit the Ranger.

7.3L Powerstroke Solution

When the 7.3L Powerstroke’s oil pan dipstick adapter starts leaking, you have to pull the engine to fix it, right? With Strictly Diesel’s Dipstick Adapter Repair Kit, there’s no need to do so. After the Dipstick Adapter Repair Kit is installed, future leaks are highly unlikely, but should one occur, the kit can be removed, resealed, and reinstalled without special tools.

  • Beautiful CNC-machined construction

  • Double O-ring seal for prevention of future leaks

BBK LS Throttle Body

If you’re swapping a GM LS-2, LS-3, or LS-7 into an off-road machine and want to eliminate the drive-by-wire stock throttle body, BBK’s new LS cable-operated throttle body is what you’ve been waiting for.

  • Available in 92mm and 100mm bore sizes, the BBK LS throttle body is made from aluminum that’s cast in Los Angeles and then machined at BBK’s Temecula, California, headquarters

  • Screws, bolts, and instructions are included, but sensors and a throttle cable are not. Compatible with OEM sensors and most popular aftermarket throttle cable brands.

ASR Recovery Ropes

Steel winch cables are as reliable as ever, but they’re dangerous, heavy, and outdated compared to the new-generation synthetic ropes available today. ASR Offroad offers a line of synthetic winch ropes and Kinetic Recovery Ropes to suit every off-road recovery need.

  • ASR synthetic winch line is up to 85-percent lighter and 40-percent stronger than an equivalent steel line

  • ASR Kinetic Recovery Ropes are designed to stretch up to 30 percent of their length during use, making for a smooth, gentle transfer of energy between the two attached vehicles
