Custom engraving on the fan shroud or tank top is available, and the radiator features dual 11/4-inch cores and is designed to cool 750 hp.

Beef Your Jeeps Dana 44
The EVO 44 Magnum sealed axle sleeves from Off-Road Evolution are designed to increase the JK axlehousing (Dana 30 and Dana 44) strength by 30 percent while incorporating dual seals to prevent debris from entering the axletubes.

Slick Engine Additive
High-viscosity oils can increase internal heat and drag, creating parasitic power loss. Justice Brothers Heavy Duty Vehicle Lubrication Additive has been dyno-tested and formulated for gasoline and diesel engines. According to the manufacturer, it reduces internal friction, gear noise, and high temperatures without increasing oil viscosity. This additive helps free sticky valves and rings, improves fuel efficiency, and increases parts longevity. Information: Justice Brothers, 626.359.9174,
