Mud Country
Dick Cepek’s Mud Country Radials are available in additional load range E sizes. The new sizes include LT285/75R16, LT305/70R16, LT315/75R16, and 35X12.50R17LT. As a mud-terrain radial the Mud Country is designed for mud, rocks, and street, and the heavy-duty sidewalls mean it can handle even heavier loads.

Daystar Cam Can Trail Box
The newest addition to the Daystar Cam Can lineup is the Trail Box. Designed to transport towstraps and other recovery gear, it is also a great place to keep first-aid supplies where they are easy to reach. The Cam Can system mounts in the center of the spare tire or with a universal bracket and the Trail Box can easily be mounted in conjunction with other Cam Can systems.

BD Diesel Dodge Sway Bar Endlinks
The sway bar endlinks on ’00-’09 Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 trucks are prone to wearing, breaking, or even pounding out over time. BD’s sway bar endlinks have a dual pivot design that allows for more articulation and prevents binding. The urethane bushing design allows for greater flex without breaking and will not pound out or seize due to the elements. All components are designed to be easily installed and serviced, and wear items are low cost to replace.

Nitro Gear Big Pinion Toyota Gears
Nitro now offers the industry’s first aftermarket ring-and-pinion sets to suit the latest, greatest ’01 and newer Toyota 8-inch differentials featuring a 29-spline pinion. Until now, only 27 splines were offered, which meant changing the pinion flange to the older, smaller design. The new Nitro 29-spline pinion is a direct fit on the ’01 and newer Toyota 8-inch applications, including those fitted with factory electric lockers. Older models can still take advantage of the upgrade by purchasing the upgrade kit that includes a new matching pinion flange, nut, and seal.

TireBalls Air Inflation System
Using proven military, industrial, and motorcycle technology, TireBalls now offers its unique Rock Crawler Multi-Cell Inflation System for tires ranging from 38 to 42 inches. The High Performance Inflation System consists of multiple individual inflation cells inside your tire, not just one tube. The puncture of a TireBall inflated tire results in a single flat cell out of many, not a flat tire, allowing many puncture situations to be ignored.

Rockland Standard Gear Tranzilla

Designed to replace traditional balky-shifting, wide-ratio truck transmissions with the smooth shifting, closer-ratio transmission, the RSG Tranzilla is available for GM, Ford, Dodge, and Jeep applications in three torque ratings: 500, 700, and 850 lb-ft. The Tranzilla will work with any 27- or 32-spline input shaft New Process, New Venture, Atlas, or Dana 300 transfer case and allows incremental clocking to optimize ground clearance and driveline angles.
