Plug And Play
Professional Products has engineered a user-friendly engine management system that can run TBI, multiport, and even forced-induction EFI systems with up to 30 psi of boost. Just fire up and drive it for about 30 minutes and the Smart-Tune technology simply tunes the engine while you drive. The Stage 2 EMS utilizes a wide-band O2 sensor to continually tune and adjust the engine for varying conditions and driving styles. Installation is simple with a minimum number of wires that are clearly labeled and fitted with OE-style GM connectors. Information: Professional Products, 323.779.2020, www.professional-products.com

Tube Car Kit
Essentially Offroad has developed a low-cost mail-order buggy builder kit called the 321. These kits feature 1.75-inch tubing and come completely notched and ready to weld with detailed instructions and an assembly video. All the customer needs to supply is the 2x3-inch main framerails and an experienced welder. Kits are designed to accommodate wheelbases from 110 to 120 inches, full-width axles, and a variety of drivetrain choices from four-cylinder to big-block.

Engine Isolation
Brown Dog Offroad introduces 11 new Ultra-Flex Rubber Motor Mounts designed to absorb more driveline vibration, providing a viable alternative for the Jeep owner who uses the same vehicle for daily driving and weekend wheeling. The new bushings are manufactured in the United States and are also offered in 1-inch and 2-inch motor mount lifts. Brown Dog also offers its Classic Polyurethane motor mounts to provide Jeep owners with a sportier feel. Information: Brown Dog Offroad, 866.401.3877, www.browndogindustries.com

Tiny Trail Tires
ITP has just released two new TerraCross R/T tires for ATVs and UTVs. These new sizes are designed for less sidewall flex for precise steering and exceptional control. Being lighter than previous sizes, they reduce horsepower losses and allow the operator to retain OEM gearing characteristics. This tire's wrap-around shoulder-lug design provides excellent sidewall protection and grip when navigating trails with large ruts or rocks as well. And it has a super-tough six-ply construction. Information: ITP Tires, 909.390.1905, www.itptires.com

Tighter Tubes
Get tight-fitting tube joints with the PipeMaster. Slide the PipeMaster over your tube and push the housing down far enough so the spring-tempered stainless steel rods match the shape of the joint. Pull the tool back up the tube far enough to trace the shape outlined by the rods. Cut along that line and the tube is ready to be welded in place. Tool sizes range from 1/2 inch to 12 inches and are also available in four popular kits. Information: PipeMaster, 360.668.3291, www.pipemastertools.com

Dirt House On Wheels
The Ute XS pop-up truck camper is fully self contained and four-season prepped right out of the box. The Ute design is continuously tested off road, is constructed of molded composite fiberglass and balsa sandwich panels, and has a seamless carbon-truss roof, making it lightweight, robust, and reliable. Standard amenities in the Ute include an auto-light three-way fridge and freezer (gas, 110V, 12V), a thermostat-regulated 16,000-Btu furnace, and on-demand hot and cold water fed by an auto-light hot water heater.

Wild Robby Wheels
Robby Gordon, NASCAR racer, desert racer, and maniac dune-jumper, has his own Signature series wheels-race-inspired and race-proven. These are the same wheels he races on. Available in a machined finished 17x8 race beadlock, or a flat black, machined finish, or a chrome finish 17x8 street version. Also available in a 20x9, 6 1/8-inch backspacing, chrome or flat black, and 20x10 with 4 1/2-inch backspacing available in chrome.

Moab Metal
The M4O-GTJK kit was designed to combat collapsing track-bar mounts and link brackets. After a trend of repairs seen in the shop at The Moab 4x4 Outpost, the fabrication team decided there was a real need to build a kit solving this issue. Much like problems seen on TJ models, the OEM mounts tend to fold, bend, or shear completely off. This five-piece weld-on kit solves the problem on all JK model Jeeps. It works with most lift kits, and the company offers a similar kit for TJs. Information: Moab 4x4 Outpost, 435.259.1109, www.moab4x4outpost.com



Toy T's
Whether you're wrenching on your old FJ-40 or cruising the outback in your 200 series, if you're a Land Cruiser guy you need to check out the line of shirts from SackWear.com. These shirts shout "I like my Toyota!" and they're soft enough to wear all week, no matter how far from home you travel. Information: SackWear, www.sackwear.com
