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!

Nice For Nissan
Looking to make a 'runner out of your Nissan? Check out NCD's new Long Travel Titan kit that puts King coilovers in between machined 6061-T6 aluminum upper and lower chromoly A-arms. NCD also addresses the need for limiting straps, beefed aluminum steering arms, brakelines, but specifies that you'll need to supply your own flared fenders to stuff 37-inch tires to the bumpstops. So what does a high-zoot kit like this give you? How about 16 inches of wheel travel, an 8-inch-wider track, and 5 inches of lift to fit 37-inch tires. Information: NCD, 805.983.7222,

Sidekick Calendars
You have to buy a calendar. We don't care how good your memory is, you'll need to record the dates of all your activities somewhere. But with Sidekicks new 2006 calendar, you won't have to worry about the dates of your off-road events since Sidekick Off Road was already nice enough to add every single one they could think of before ever distributing this full-color 12-month calendar. If you don't have a calendar yet, then check this out, and even if you do, go buy one anyways-the pics alone are worth it. Information: Sidekick Off Road, 877.628.7227,

Banks Power Palm
The Banks Six-Gun Diesel Tuners deliver gains up to 155 hp and 385 lb-ft of torque by tuning pulse width, timing, and fuel pressure, all while allowing you to choose six different power levels. And now you can control it all through a PowerPDA that sits on your dash, interfaces with the Banks Six-Gun Tuner, and adds the capability of tuning many more parameters, getting 0-60 and quarter-mile times, and clearing diagnostic codes. Information: Banks Power, 800.277.1991,

Don't 'Rock' Your Dodge
Looking for some good-looking and functional rocker guards for your Dodge Ram truck? You finally have somewhere to turn besides your local fabricator: Wilson's Off Road Fabrication now has TIG-welded rocker guards made up of 2-inch DOM and 2x3-inch rectangular tubing that bolt on to your Dodge's frame at three different mounting points (per side). Shown are examples in a textured black powdercoat, but other finishes are available. Information: Wilson's Off Road Fabrication, 281.380.8579

WFO HD Double Arms
We've been hearing of these for a while now, and finally WFO Concepts is ready to notify the 4x4 community about its new Dana 60 HD double arms machines from 1-inch steel. They are drilled and tapered to accept Chevy tie rods and drag links, but can be ordered to accept 3/4-inch rod ends. The ends of the arms are machined at a 10-degree angle to make up for kingpin inclination and allow for you to mount the tie rod in back of the axle. WFO's arms also eliminate any "death wobble" caused by kingpin deflection by eliminating the upper kingpin spring and replacing it with shims. Information: WFO Concepts, 530.268.9494,
