Tougher Tundra
Pro Comp is proud to introduce a new 4-inch suspension system for the ’07-’12 Toyota Tundra. This system installs without any cutting of the factory crossmembers and provides clearance for 35-inch tires. Extended steering knuckles are used to keep the rack-and-pinion steering unit in the factory location. These knuckles combined with rockproof, one-piece lower crossmembers provide performance, durability, and ease of installation that Tundra owners demand. Advanced engineering maintains proper CV axle angles and allows the full range of compression and extension travel without binding ball joints. Best of all, it is 100-percent VSC stability control compatible.

Locked Up
New from STRATTEC Security Corporation is the BOLT Spare Tire Lock for ’91-to-current Jeep Wranglers. The BOLT Jeep Spare Tire Lock features the company’s breakthrough One-Key Lock Technology, which eliminates the need to carry extra keys to protect expensive Jeep spare tires. It works by permanently programming the lock to the Jeep’s ignition key to prevent problems with lost keys and costly lockouts. To use, simply insert the Jeep’s ignition key into the lock cylinder, turn once and spring-loaded plate tumblers move up and down until they are matched exactly to that key. The auto-return spring automatically locks when the key is removed. BOLT Jeep Spare Tire Locks have an automotive-grade lock shutter to keep out weather and debris and a six-plate tumbler sidebar that prevents picking and bumping.

Spyder Square
Spyder Industries now offers the Black Venom bull bar for popular fullsize trucks. The Black Venom is made of heavy-gauge 2½-inch square tubing on the outer frame. The square tubing is turned on a diamond shape for great looks and extra strength. It provides front-end protection, as well as four mounts to add off-road lights to your truck.

Save The Hammers!
Master-Pull has again committed to keeping public lands open to the public by donating a portion of the proceeds of its new limited-edition green winch rope to the Johnson Valley defense fund, which has been set up by the California Motorized Recreation Council. The California Motorized Recreation Council (CMRC) is a collection of pro-access organizations that are working together to develop a plan to save Johnson Valley. CMRC includes organizations such as ORBA, Cal4Wheel, CORVA, the AMA and the ASA. The limited-edition ropes are available in 100-foot lengths in either 3⁄8-inch or 5⁄16-inch thicknesses.

Axle Actuation
Jasper Engines & Transmissions is offering complete remanufactured front axle actuator assemblies for late-model GM four-wheel-drive SUVs, including the ’02-’09 Chevy Trailblazer, ’02-’08 GMC Envoy, ’02-’03 Oldsmobile Bravada, ’04-’07 Buick Rainier, and ’03-’07 Isuzu Ascender. The four-wheel-drive actuator assembly includes a new electric shift motor installed on the housing, two side gears that spline into the left and right axleshafts, along with a shift fork and collar that shifts the vehicle into, and out of, four-wheel drive. Jasper uses synthetic grease in its remanufactured actuators in place of the standard lithium-style complex grease. In addition, axleshaft seals are pre-lubricated during assembly, to prevent a squealing noise coming from the actuator from dry seals rubbing against the axleshaft.
