Paint Armor
Amor All’s Extreme Shield Wax is formulated to protect and shine your vehicle’s paint. The wipe on/wipe off, no-haze formula is intended to repel dirt and grime while creating an invisible layer between your paint and the elements. This new-age wax is also said to reduce cleanup time and make bug and sap removal easy.

Hummer Zone
Clear up to 35-inch-tall tires with the ’05-’10 Hummer H3 and H3T leveling kit from Zone Offroad Products. The budget friendly 2-inch boost includes a pair of American-made CNC torsion bar keys. Working with the lift keys is a set of front shock spacers that help compensate for the added lift without limiting the suspension travel. Information: Zone Offroad Products, 888.998.ZONE,

Trail Ram
Trail Master’s 41⁄2-inch suspension system allows for up to 35-inch tires on the ’10-’11 Dodge Ram 2500/3500 4x4 trucks. Each kit comes with heavy-duty front coil springs, control arms, a track bar drop bracket, and a pitman arm to maintain the Ram’s frontend suspension geometry. The rear lift comes by way of heavy-duty steel blocks and longer U-bolts. Finishing out the system is a set of Trail Master SSV shocks.

4.0 Power Jam
The Trail Jammer EXT system from Superchips is engineered to pull out more power from the 4.0L inline-six in the ’98-’06 Jeep Wrangler TJ and ’98-’01 Jeep Cherokee XJ. Included in the EXT system is a Flashpaq performance tuner, a throttle body, and a cold air intake kit with a washable filter.

HD Sleeves
Rough Country’s HD Tie Rod sleeves strengthen the factory GM 1500 and 2500 4x4 IFS steering links. By increasing the steering link diameter from 1⁄2 to 1 inch, the sleeves reduce the risk of the links bending or breaking. The installer-friendly kit can be fitted on both stock and lifted trucks. Currently the sleeves are available for ’99-’07 1500 and ’02-’08 2500 GM trucks.

Outback Protection
ARB’s rear bumper with optional spare tire carrier offers sleek and durable protection for the back of the ’07-’11 Jeep Wrangler JK. The bumper’s center section is designed to make room for a 37-inch-tall spare and includes dual shackle mounts and Hi-Lift jack points. The optional tire carrier is fitted with a catchless-style latching system that allows the carrier to unlatch automatically when the tailgate is opened.

5.0 F-150 Intake
Volant’s cold-air intake for the ’11 Ford F-150 with the 5.0L replaces the factory air filter box and radiator coolant overflow tank. This system moves the intake several inches back toward the firewall to provide the sealed air filter box greater air volume and the ability to use an optional air scoop. Volant’s CAI kit comes with a five-layer Pro-5 cotton gauze reusable filter, and the coolant tank utilizes the factory fittings, cap, and hoses.

No Wobble
Ready Lift’s Anti-Wobble Track Bar is designed to remove the unwanted steering wobble from the ’05-to-current Ford F-250/350 4x4 trucks. The heavy-duty replacement track bar is comprised of 11⁄2x0.188-wall tubing and is fitted with 7⁄8-inch chromoly left- and right-hand joints for ease of adjustment. Track bars are currently available for 0- to 21⁄2-inch lifts and 4-inch-plus lifts.
