A New Kind of Bumpstop for JKs
TeraFlex SpeedBumps are an innovative composite bumpstop system designed for high-speed, high-performance JK Wrangler applications. The maintenance-free, performance-tuned closed cell microcellular polyurethane material provides an effective yet simpler method for absorbing bottoming-out events. Thanks to traditional "can-style" packaging, SpeedBumps are easy to bolt on with no further adjustment or tuning required. The kit is compatible with all suspension systems that retain the factory axle and spring-mounting locations.

Tundra Suspension Options
If you own a '07-'10 Toyota Tundra and you'd like to fit a 35-inch tire under it, check out this new suspension kit from RCD Suspension. The kit includes Bilstein 5100 Series monotube rear shocks as well as one-piece steel boxed crossmembers that maintain the integrity of the factory frame and the proper control-arm and CV axle angles. Additionally, the kit includes a pair of CNC-machined cast-iron steering knuckles that are said to reduce installation time while improving front end alignment and steering characteristics significantly. All RCD suspension kits feature attractive 304 stainless steel anti-compression struts that tie the front subframe to the center portion of the frame for increased strength.

Survival Brake Series
One of the most overlooked road safety issues is the stopping performance of four-wheel drives. Disc Brake Australia (DBA) is out to change all that with a new line of rotors that boast quicker stopping and improved pedal feel, improved pad wear, reduced fade, and cooler running for better durability. DBA calls these new rotors their 4x4 Survival Brake Series. All DBA performance rotors are designed and manufactured in Australia. In every case, they are direct replacement discs, meaning no other modifications to the braking system are required.

It has a 470-volt primary/45,000-volt secondary output, plus a built-in rev limiter with rotary dials for easy adjustment from zero to 9,900 rpm.

Mud Flaps that Make a Statement
Daystar's new universal mud flaps keep your vehicle legal while expressing your opinion in bold letters. Daystar's "Four Wheeling is Not a Crime" mud flaps provide adequate tire coverage and are constructed of high-strength polyurethane material that is resistant to vehicle fluids, road grime, and magnesium chloride (used for de-icing). At 5/16-inch thick, Daystar's mud flaps are tough and designed to last for years in punishing environments. They are a universal fit designed to work with commonly available bracket systems. We like the fact that a portion of the proceeds for all mud flaps will be donated to the BlueRibbon Coalition in order to assist with the fight to keep trails open.
