PowerTank, Camburg, Kevin's Off-Road, and More!

More Flow
Got a Power Tank or CO2 system on your rig? Now you can get more flow out of it to fill tires faster and run high-demand air tools and pneumatic bottle jacks. The Power Tank SuperFlow XP400 regular has a max outlet pressure of 400 psi and an amazing flow rate of 48 cfm. Info: Powertank, 209/334-0898, www.powertank.com

Raptorize Your F-150
If you own an ’09-or-newer Ford F-150 4x4 and want to go fast in the dirt, consider Camburg Engineering’s all-new coilover performance system. The kit adds three inches of lift and allows 10 inches of wheel travel, thanks to 2.5-inch FOX Racing Shox. Info: Camburg Engineering, 714/848-8880, www.camburg.com

Better Bushings
Kevin’s Off Road recently sent us a pair of their new Hard-KOR super durometer track bar bushings to test in our project Silver Bullet JK. The bushings work with most aftermarket track bars for Jeep vehicles, including bars from Rubicon Express, JKS, and Trail Master. Our testing proved that the stiffer bushing material resulted in crisper steering and improved handling. Track bar bushings typically wear out much faster than other joints due to the forces they control, so if you are trying to restore your factory steering feel, these bushings are a great place to start.

DIY Floor Coating
This new garage floor coating is said to be 20 times more durable and 98 percent more flexible than traditional epoxy floor paints. That translates into a floor covering that won’t crack or peel, while resisting harsh chemicals such as salt, oil, and gas. Ultra-low VOC levels makes it environmentally friendly, and the unique chemical composition cures within eight hours, which allows you to get back to work quickly. The kit covers up to 250 square feet. Info: RockSolid Floors, 612/518-2184, www.rocksolidfloors.com

Hands-Free Trailer Jack
Check out the new Brute Jack from Husky Towing Products. Intended to replace traditional hand-crank-style tongue jacks, this unit is packed with value. The weather-resistant housing features a built-in LED work lamp, and the whole setup is wirelessly controlled from up to 40 feet away. There’s also a Smart Stop feature that eliminates the hard mechanical stop at the end of the range of motion, which lessens stress on the jack and reduces current draw. Capable of lifting 4,500 pounds up to 18 inches vertically, this jack is in a league all its own. Info: Husky Towing Products, 800/361-5227, www.huskytow.com

New Meats
The new Mickey Thompson Baja STZ tire is aimed at the OEM replacement segment. As such, you will not find it in plus sizes. However, for those who need stock replacement sizes, the STZ packs a punch, thanks to variable-density nylon wraps over the belt package to deliver improved uniformity, ride comfort, and handling. Serrated tie bars and robust shoulder scallops help provide lug shear resistance, while multi-angled tapered lugs allow the tread to eject mud and stones. All these features combine to create an impressive performer in mud, sand, and snow. Siping has been strategically placed to improve traction in wet and icy road conditions as well.

Jeep Trail Doors
T&T Customs Trail Doors are constructed of 3/16-inch aluminum and include padded armrests, cupholders, hinges and Bestop-compatible latches for ease of use. Doors ship with a durable powdercoat finish and are available for the Jeep TJ, LJ, and YJ. Info: T&T Customs, 307/775-9565, www.tntcustoms.com
