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 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!

Explore More Tuning
Now you can get customized tuning specifically for lifted trucks from Explorer Pro Comp. The same people who bring you so many popular lift kits now have Power Pro Tuners (PPT) to better tune your tranny and engine in your truck or Jeep to better suit the way you use your truck. The PPTs will even make sure your odometer is right on to help you avoid getting tickets and into trouble. And if your engine ever sees any trouble, the PPT will double as a diagnostic trouble code reader. Information: Explorer Pro Comp, 800.776.0767,

Solid-Axle Horns
After a year of research and development, Rock Krawler is very proud to release its first solid-axle swap kit for the '00-'06 Chevy 2500/3500 trucks. The system provides around 9 inches of lift with the help of coilover racing shocks. The system is designed to work with an '03-and-up Dodge Ram axle, but brackets are available to make any driver-side pumpkin axle work with the kit. Heavy-duty steering kits are also available to complement this kit while giving minimal bumpsteer. Rear coilover kits are available as well, or you can stick with a conventional rear leaf setup. Information: Rock Krawler, 518.270.9822,

GPS Bracket
Need a place to put a GPS guide unit in your truck, but don't have enough room in the dash? Don't worry about it, because Four Treks has a new modular mount to hook your GPS securely to the dash bar of your rollcage tubing. Four Treks' aluminum rings can be ordered to fit 1- to 2 1/4-inch tubing and come with stainless steel Allen head bolts to secure it all. Information: Fourtreks, 818.517.6145,

You've always been able to fill up tires with an ARB air compressor if you had nothing else available, but it sure was slow. The light-duty air compressors were only meant for differential lockers and emergencies. But due to popular demand, ARB has recently released its high-output onboard air compressors with a 50 percent duty cycle supporting a flow of 2.65 cfm. It's fully sealed for dust and moisture resistance, and has a relocatable air filter for waterproof air intake positioning. The anodized case has a Teflon-impregnated carbon-fiber piston seal for friction reduction, as well as a 100 percent ball-bearing motor that will ensure long compressor life. Information: ARB USA, 425.264.1391,

No-Burst Hoses
If you've just bought a new JK Wrangler and you're reading this magazine, you probably didn't buy it just to be trendy. You likely bought it to get you to remote areas and back, and therefore you need to demand the best in reliability out of everything on your JK. So in your fury of modifying, you should look into ditching those plain old rubber hoses and upgrading to some nice silicone units like these five-ply beauties from BRX Products. The hoses are guaranteed for life but it's unlikely you'll ever need to call the warranty claims department because these hoses will keep your fluids from bursting out of your ride. Information: BRX Products, 951.662.2009,
