XJ Fender Flares
The Bushwacker Flat Style Flares for the '84-'01 Jeep Cherokee XJ two-door and four-door use a trail-worthy design that's tough enough for the hardcore rockcrawlers. The matte black finish is UV-protected to resist fading, and the flares also resist denting and cracking. They are constructed with an incredibly durable material, which can bend without breaking and retain its shape to help prevent body damage. The Flat Style Flares require some minor fender trimming and drilling, but give 41/2 inches of tire coverage in the front and 31/2 inches in the rear.

Interlocking Tube Clamps
If you need to place a support tube across your truggy or buggy, but need the flexibility to remove a motor, transmission, or even a seat, then tube clamps can help. Trail-Gear's interlocking tube clamps are machined from 4130 chromoly steel and use a counter-sunk Allen-head screw.

Synthetic Winch Rope
Rugged Ridge's 8,500-pound high-strength synthetic winch rope is strong and light, never kinks or splinters, and has a breaking force of 16,550 pounds. The line is woven from 12 UV-treated strands, and each rope comes with a protective sleeve that prevents it from overheating on the winch drum. It also features a black powdercoated latched hook, a stainless steel thimble, and a preterminated end for easy installation.

Engine Torque Damper
The Stiffy series of adjustable engine torque dampers for '97-'02 Jeep Wrangler TJs with 2.5L engines is designed for drivers who want more precise throttle response from their Jeep. The damper is engineered to reduce deflection under hard acceleration for improved performance and power-to-weight transfer. The damper transfers more power to the road and improves acceleration, shifting, and overall control and balance.
