Airbag Cradle
Daystar’s new Air Bag Cradle mounts to your truck’s lower suspension providing more room for the airbag to safely cycle with no loss of wheel travel. With most airbag systems, the lower airbag mount is placed above the leaf spring, significantly reducing wheel travel. Made from extremely tough Daystar Polyurethane, the Air Bag Cradle allows full suspension travel, while still maintaining the full benefits of your airbag system. The Air Bag Cradle fits most fullsize pickup trucks and SUV’s running 6-inch-diameter bellows-style airbags and is made in the USA.

Gate Saver
The TeraFlex Heavy Duty Adjustable Tire Carrier and Tailgate Reinforcement Kit is designed to carry up to a 37-inch tire over the most extreme trails and obstacles, and provide easy access to the rear cargo area with a single action. The kit spreads the load and weight of the tire to more than just one hinge point. A cast-aluminum main component keeps the carrier as light and strong as possible and is designed to follow the contour of the Jeep body, while providing additional mounting points for off-road accessories. The TeraFlex HD tire carrier removes all the stress from the factory gate by utilizing the HD reinforcement carrier as the load-carrying component, in effect carrying both the weight of the tailgate assembly and the spare tire.
