Cool Covers
Con-Ferr offers new heat-treated aluminum differential covers. The covers provide increased oil capacity and ribbed construction to help dissipate heat to keep gears running cooler for longer life. The covers are available in fully polished satin aluminum, and black with polished fins. Information: Con-Ferr Products, Dept. 4WOR, 733 Victory Blvd., Burbank, CA 91502, 818/848-6993,

Under the Influence
Performance Distributors introduces its Davis Unified Ignition (D.U.I.) for six-cylinder AMCs. It's a one-piece unit that replaces the messy wiring and coil. The coil and module are said to be virtually water-, mud-, and vibration-proof because they are inside the distributor.

Go Rhino! also features the StepGuard, the only Euro-style grille- and brushguard with a built-in step, available in chrome or black powdercoat finish. All Go Rhino! products are backed by a limited five-year warranty. Information: Go Rhino! Products, Dept. 4WOR, 2097 N. Batavia St., Orange, CA 92865, 714/279-8300.

Instant 4WD
All '94-2000 Dodge Ram owners can be a part of the growing family of GM drivers who have already discovered the 4x4 Posi-Lok, a cable-operated mechanism that is said to enable instant four-wheel-drive control. With a simple pull and twist of the T-handle, the driver manually engages the front axle. Information: Whitey Inc., Dept. 4WOR, 6625 SW McEwan Rd., Lake Oswego, OR 97035, 503/620-8877,
