Q-jets are great carbs but they don't last forever. Luckily JET Performance has two new rebuild kits for Quadrajet carburetors. Both kits include a complete needle and seat assembly, an accelerator pump, a fuel filter gasket, choke seals, a body-to-base gasket, an air horn gasket, a carburetor-to-intake gasket, and an air cleaner gasket. By replacing old seals and worn-out parts, you'll find lost power and be back wheeling in no time.

Performance Diesel Inc. (PDI) is now offering new manifolds for '98-'02 Dodges with the 24-valve Cummins. The manifolds are forged of a Molysiliconductile material-the same material used to cast turbo housings-which allows for both the manifold and turbo housing to cool at similar rates. This is designed to help reduce the risk of warping and cracking the manifold. Each ball-seal manifold is finished with a high-temperature coating to prevent corrosion and for a finished look.

Asfir has a new line of body armor for the Jeep JK Wrangler. The company is offering front winch bumpers with mounting pockets for a 9,000-pound winch that were also designed to enhance airflow to the radiator. Asfir's product line is engineered to be light weight yet still protective, such as their JK skidplates made from 6mm aluminum that were laser cut and bent to fit tight against the underbelly of the Jeep, yet remove easily for future service. Skidplates mount through original factory chassis holes.
