Pro Guard For Duramax
aFe now offers its line of Pro Guard D2 oil filters for '01-'08 Duramax diesel-equipped pickups. This oil filter is designed to produce maximum efficiency with minimal flow loss. The Pro Guard D2 Diesel Duty oil filters use a heavy-duty coil spring, wire-backed media providing strength, and an anti-backflow valve to reduce damage during cold starts. Info: 951/493-7100, www.afepower.com

10-Inch '08 Super Duty Kit
Superlift's new Super Duty kits are available in 2-, 4-, 6-, 8-, and 10-inch (shown) heights. Caster correction is engineered into each system; Ford's radius-arm suspensions lose about 3 degrees of caster for every 2 inches of lift. Superlift's taller systems use either caster brackets with the OE arms or a four-link conversion. Other key components are engine-specific coil springs as required and an optional track-bar relocation bracket to prevent yaw and roll. Rear lift options include blocks, add-a-leaves, or full replacement Superide spring packs with the option of a hollow rubber cushion load-assist system. A high-angle front CV driveshaft is offered with the 10-inch kit. Info: 800/551-4955, www.superlift.com

Drop-In Atlas 2 For Jks
Advance Adapters now offers an easy install kit for Jeep JKs. The kit will allow you to fit the Atlas 2 transfer case under the newest Jeep with no custom modifications necessary. This allows you to retain your stock driveshafts, virtually making the Atlas a one-day install. Info: 800/350-2223, www.gotatlas.com

Break-In Oil
Engine builders using flat-tappet cams have grown increasingly concerned that many modern motor oils do not provide adequate wear protection for new engines, particularly those using flat-tappet cams. Royal Purple addressed this issue by developing a new engine break-in oil. It's formulated to allow optimal ring seal and to protect rotating assembly components such as the camshaft and valvetrain from initial start-up wear. Royal Purple combines highly refined mineral oil, preferred for engine break-in, with advanced additives containing high levels of zinc and phosphorus to optimize protection in flat-tappet and roller engines.

Pro-Flo XT Fuel Injection System
Edelbrock is taking the Pro-Flo into the next generation of powerful yet friendly EFI with the introduction of the new Pro-Flo XT electronic fuel-injection system. The system includes a new, more powerful ECU featuring fully sequential injection, an improved handheld tuning module for tuning on the fly without the use of a laptop CPU, predefined calibrations, and wideband O2 sensor compatibility. If laptop tuning is desired, the user can tune the system using the Pro-Flo XT software (included). The Pro-Flo XT also receives a new modern intake manifold design packaged with a 90mm front-mount throttle body. The complete system includes an ECU, a wiring harness, a handheld tuning module, all electronic sensors, fuel system components, an intake manifold, injectors, fuel rails, a throttle body, and software.

JK Swing-Away Tire Carrier
Carrying a spare tire and extra fuel is essential for many avid Jeep enthusiasts. But keeping these items protected on the trail or on the highway is just as important. That's why OR Fab manufactured its swing-away tire carrier to be virtually indestructible. Made in the U.S.A. from 1.5-inch-diameter, 0.120-wall tube steel, this tire carrier is strong, allows full access to the tailgate, and features a heavy-duty hinge with a 500-pound-rated lockable draw latch. The unit can hold up to a 35-inch tire and two jerrycans, and features a mounting location for a Hi-Lift jack and CB antenna. Its sturdy design keeps the carrier from rattling on the highway while visually complementing your Jeep with either a smooth or wrinkle black powdercoat finish. The OR Fab swing-away tire carrier is available for the '07-'08 JK Wranglers. Info: 928/636-7080, www.p-a-g.net
