Liquid Image EGO
The Liquid Image EGO HD Action Camera is a WiFi-enabled video recorder that is highly adaptable to any environment. It can be easily mounted anywhere on your rig with a variety of available accessories. This is much more than your average helmet cam. A free Liquid Image app is available for iOS and Android smartphones, which enables the camera to stream your photos and videos live to your phone and act as a remote-control to activate the camera. With a few click on your screen you can flip the camera image, adjust the aspect ratio, and even download the video to your phone and instantly share it online. Some features include 1080p recording, continuous photography, a 135-degree wide-angle lens, and a water-resistant housing. Additional waterproof housings make these little cameras perfect for the mud! With an 8-gigabyte card, the approximate video recording time for both the 1080p at 30 fps and 720p at 60 fps is around 89 minutes. $199

All-Terrain Vise
Not every job presents the ideal work conditions, which is one of the reasons why Wilton, a leading manufacturer of industrial vises and clamps, developed the ATV (All Terrain Vise). This unit helps transform any vehicle with a 2-inch hitch into an instant workstation. Once the vise is inserted into a receiver, a standard hitch pin secures it. In addition, two patented setscrews on the top and side are used to tighten the ATV inside the receiver, which will eliminate play and reduce vibration when driving. A spring-loaded hub secures the handle when driving and keeps it in an upright position. Other features include a large striking anvil, a patented 360-degree locking handle, and an integrated carrying handle. At 33 pounds it is light enough to call it portable, and the powdercoated steel is rated to 60,000 psi. The 6-inch wide jaws open to 5 3/4 inches and have a 5-inch throat depth. The vise has a clamping force of 1-ton and is equipped with two sets of jaws, straight and V-grooved, which are replaceable. The pipe jaws hold material up to 3 inches in diameter, which is perfect for fixing a broken four-link. $199-$249

Speedo Correction Adapter
Is your speedometer not giving the correct speed? Don’t drop the pan or struggle with locating increasingly scarce internal speedometer gears, because California Performance Transmission has the answer. Simply screw the inline adaptor into the transmission’s speedo drive and then your speedometer cable into the back of the adaptor. Now here is the trick: Use a GPS device or your cellphone to accurately drive at 50 mph and then read the speed that your car’s speedometer is indicating. After you send California Performance Transmission your speed, the company will calculate the correction ratio and gear a new adaptor for you. Once you receive it and install it, problem solved! $75

Jeep Wrangler Turbocharger
The Banks Sidewinder Turbo for the ’05-’06 4.0L Jeep Wrangler is designed to increase low- and midrange torque, which provides additional power on in the mud. A few other advantages are improved drivability on the road, a significant increase in rear wheel horsepower, and torque upgrades of up to 83.7 lb-ft at 3,200 rpm with a modest 6 psi of boost pressure. The torque output at 1,600 rpm is greater than the peak torque in stock condition, which is ideal for slingin’ some mud. For easy fitment, the turbo configuration is preassembled to its cast-iron mount with alternator relocation provision and an integrated blow-off valve and wastegate. Banks includes the AutoMind handheld programmer for recalibration of the engine control unit (ECU). A Ram-Air Intake System is unique to the application and is available with an optional through-the-hood Super-Scoop. The Super-Scoop provides a cold air path into the intake system, which raises air density and increases performance. Everything required for a complete installation is provided. Components include a Banks-developed 46x58mm oil-cooled turbocharger with an integrated recirculating blow-off valve, new Bosch 35 lb/hr fuel injectors, a two-bar MAP sensor, a billet throttle body spacer mount with a port provision for the Banks boost gauge, and stainless-steel turbine inlet/outlet pipes. The boost tube includes provisions for Water-Methanol injection nozzles. $2,950
