Doug Thorley Tri-Y Headers for LS Swaps
The newest long-tube Tri-Y headers from Doug Thorley will fit all ’88-’98 GM 1500 trucks and SUVs that have had their OEM engines swapped for LS-series engines. These headers are made in America and less restrictive than the stock exhaust manifolds. The Tri-Y design increases fuel efficiency by reducing back pressure in the exhaust system, which translates into more immediate throttle response and a better running motor.

Delta Tech LED Search Light
Delta Tech announces the all-new Silo-4 LED searchlight. This high-output, 40-watt light produces an impressive 6,400 lumens in a 20-degree long-range pattern to light up the darkest night.

BDS TJ Wrangler Belly Pan
BDS now offers a heavy-duty, high-clearance belly pan for the ’97-’06 Jeep Wrangler TJ that offers additional underbody protection for drivetrain components.

It increases ground clearance by 11⁄4 inches on the ’03-’06 TJ Wranglers and 1⁄2 inch on the ’97-’02 models. This system is compatible with most suspensions as well. The new low-profile transmission mount allows for additional clearance without requiring motor mount modification.

37-inch Mickey Thompson Baja Claw TTC Radial
Now available in 37X12.50R17LT size, the Baja Claw TTC Radial from Mickey Thompson features mud scoops placed strategically along the outer tread block and the directional 23-degree tread lugs. The extrawide footprint and decoupling grooves in the tread allow the tire to flex and conform to irregular surfaces.

MSD Wireless Atomic EFI for LS Engines
Where last year’s Atomic EFI consolidated electronics and sensors into the throttle body itself, the Atomic LS platform incorporates the electronics into the fuel rails. There’s no bulky ECU or wiring harness to mount and therefore no mess of wires to route around the engine. The Atomic LS wireless design mounts simply and cleanly on the engine, greatly improving the overall aesthetics under the hood. With the ECU integral on the engine, there is no need to run over a hundred wires around the engine and back to an external ECU. The electronic fuel rails each have only the connectors required for each bank of the engine.

DynoMax Wrangler & Grand Cherokee After-Cat Exhaust
DynoMax performance exhaust has launched several new high-performance exhaust systems for popular late-model Jeep models with the Pentastar 3.6L V-6, including Wrangler, Wrangler Unlimited, and Grand Cherokee. Each of the systems is designed to provide higher clearance than the stock or typical aftermarket exhaust and includes 21⁄2-inch Grade 409 stainless steel, mandrel-bent piping for extended protection against corrosion, and a 3-inch stainless steel muffler with a 6-inch slant-cut tip.
