Submission Information
Maybe you have a company and want to know how to get your stuff in New Products. If you have a new truck- or 4x4-related product you'd like us to help you debut, e-mail an image and some text about the product to Please have all images be no less than 1600 x 1200 pixels (or two megapixels) and be saved as a TIFF, an EPS, or a maximum-quality JPEG file so our art director doesn't shoot us. We can't use images off of any Word Documents or Adobe Acrobat files, so be sure to include a separate image in the proper format, or it won't be run. Thanks again. We love seeing all the new stuff you guys come up with!

Bigger Brakes Without Big Cost
Baer's new Eradispeed +1 brake upgrade gives you an option for bigger brakes without spending the big money. The new kit comes with oversized rotors to match those big wheels, and brackets to adapt the factory calipers to the new rotors. By creating more leverage force, the braking performance is increased, even with the factory calipers. On top of all that, the rotors have a limited lifetime warranty against warping, and are zinc-washed (along with the caliper brackets) to prevent corrosion. Information: Performance Products, 800.789.1966,

Mega Juice
Why bother with a dual battery kit when you can get 2,150 cranking amps from one battery? Odyssey's new military-grade PC 2150S is a Group 31 battery putting out twice that of other Group 31 batteries, not to mention having around a 10-year life in engine-starting operation. The 13x6.80x9.40-inch PC 2150S is a drycell sealed battery that can be mounted in any direction and has more cranking amps than you'll know what to do with, especially when considering the 200-minute reserve capacity at a 25-amp load. Information: West Coast Batteries, 888.379.2555,

Universal Radiators
Yep, this is probably just about the nicest radiator you'll ever see. Flex-a-lite's new Cross-Flow radiators with their patented sidetank design feature not only outstanding looks, but also an internal fin luxury that act as heat sinks that help absorb heat and then dissipate it through its external fins. The external fins double as limitless mounting points for expansion tanks, electric fans, oil coolers, and the brackets to sit your radiator in almost any radiator support you could choose. The Flex-a-lite radiators can be purchased with or without the electric fans and come with a two-row core (three different core sizes available) and 1-inch tubes. Information: Flex-a-lite, 800.851.1510,

Stainless Hose Insertion Made Easy
Ever tried to stick a frayed braided hose into a fitting's socket? It can be a real pain in the butt, but not anymore. Fragola's Koul Tool is made for just such an operation. Just insert the socket, close the clamshell, and juice it with a little oil, and the hose will twist into place. The Koul Tools are sold in sets of three, with sizes ranging from 4 to 16. Information: Fragola PerformanceSystems, 866.337.2739,
