New Late Intake

View Slideshow

When the 3.6L Pentastar was plunked between the framerails of the '12, the game changed. Not only was there more power than ever before from the factory, but the entire aftermarket had to go back to the drawing board for power adders. So, if you've got a '12 or '13 Wrangler, maybe you've been waiting for the right intake. Maybe this is it. The Momentum GT intake outflows the factory intake by 47 percent and frees up 12hp and 11 lb-ft of power. It is a one-piece unit with a massive air filter inside and premium mounting and assembly hardware. The housing has a large cold air scoop that can be blocked by an included urethane plug on those really cold days. Information: aFe Power, 951/493-7135, afepower.com

HuMn

Bifold and trifold wallets are all well and good, but they take up a lot of space and it can be difficult to get stuff out of them. Not only that, your ID can credit card info can be swiped by an RFID scanner without you ever taking the wallet out of your pocket. Enter the HuMn wallet 2 (HW2) and HuMn wallet mini. Available in your choice of 6061 Aluminum or 3K twill carbon fiber, it is lighter and sturdier than what you carry now. The aluminum is available in a wide assortment of colors, and the HW2 can be had in either 2-plate or 3-plate configurations with whatever plate and strap colors you want. Just go to the website to customize yours. Information: HuMn Wallet, 800/704-4588, humnwallet.com

Beaded

View Slideshow

TreadWright has announced the launch of its new bead-to-bead retread tire so you can get all the benefits of costly new tires at a fraction of the price. In fact, you can save up to 60 percent over certain other brand-name tires. Bead-to-bead is a process of applying new rubber veneer to the tire sidewalls, significantly enhancing the tire's cosmetic appearance and long-term performance. The new sidewall veneer provides additional benefit in that it further seals the tire, improving the overall durability. Information: TreadWright, 877/439-0759, treadwright.com

Not Draconian

View Slideshow

This neat looking cast aluminum wheel is from Rugged Ridge and called the Drakon, but it is anything but draconian. While it was designed with the JK in mind, the 5-on-5 inch bolt pattern with 4.53 inches of backspacing could work on other Jeeps, such as the WJ as well. It is available in satin black, satin black with a gold lip, satin black with a gunmetal lip, and solid gunmetal powdercoating. This DOT-approved wheel is rated for 2,200 pounds and is currently only available in a 17x9 size. Information: Rugged Ridge, 770/614-6101, ruggedridge.com

Antigravity

View Slideshow

We've been saying for years that Lithium Ion batteries are the next big thing to come in Jeep batteries. Antigravity is a new player in that market, with batteries that boast up to 80 percent more amperage than a similarly-sized lead acid battery. As the name implies, these batteries are also much lighter than regular lead acid batteries as well. With more power on tap you can also go with smaller batteries, which can mean more space under the hood. That can mean either more space for other accessories, the ability to put dual batteries in the spot where one used to be, or a combination thereof. Information: Antigravity Batteries, 310/27-2330, antigravitybatteries.com

The center cap conceals the lug nuts for added security and to provide a smooth appearance. The 5182 Series wheels are offered in 17-inch and 20-inch diameters with five-, six-, and eight-lug applications to fit many axles and vehicles.

Skinny Oval

View Slideshow

New from JW Speaker is the model 6020 LED worklight. It features a unique oval design and is quite thin to fit in tight spaces. The housing is die-cast aluminum with an impact-resistant polycarbonate lens and designed for off-road situations. The Model 6020 has an impressive light output of 1,800 raw lumens and 1,010 effective lumens. The color temperature of the Model 6020 mimics that of a bright, noonday sun, which is not only easy on the eyes, but helps to promote alertness. These lights are designed and manufactured right here in the USA. Information: JW Speaker, 800/558-7288, jwspeaker.com

Two-Door Lovin'

View Slideshow

The four-door JK is so popular that just about anything you want you can find in the aftermarket—the two-door, maybe just a little bit less so. That is why we are pleased to announce this new gas tank skidplate from Rough Country suspension for the two-door JK. Made from 3⁄16-inch-thick steel with a completely bolt-on installation, it is an easy way to up-armor the underside of your JK. Once bolted-up the skid has a flat profile, so sliding over rocks is easier than ever. Information: Rough Country Suspension, 800/222-7023, roughcountry.com
