Eastwood LED Worklight
Eastwood offers a rechargeable 120-LED underhood worklight. The surface-mount LEDs put out 1,250 lumens, which Eastwood maintains is up to two times brighter than conventional LEDs. With extendable bars that have foam-covered hooks, the light mounts to any surface from 53 to 72 inches wide. Built from ABS and aluminum, the light folds in half for easy storage. The kit includes an AC/DC adapter and a 12-volt charger for the 7.4-volt (2200 mAh) lithium-ion battery.

Metal Cloak Adjustable JK Bumps
The follow-up to the company’s adjustable front bumpstops, Metal Cloak now offers configurable rear JK bumpstops. This allows the best bumpstop length for the suspension setup to be dialed in. Each kit includes eight 1-inch-thick rectangular pucks made from thermoplastic rubber. Up to four can be stacked per side, giving 1 to 4 inches of bumpstop length, in 1-inch increments.

Reid Racing Super Duty Knuckle
A passenger-side high-steer conversion knuckle for ’05-present Ford Super Duty trucks is now available. Reid Racing designed it with a reinforced, tapped flat-top pad. Aftermarket bolt-on steering arms of various heights can now be installed to accommodate suspension lifts and axle swaps. All OEM ball joints, brake, hub, unit bearing, traction control, and ABS systems are retained. Optional tie-rod end bolt kits allow reusing the original tie rod or upgrading to hydraulic ram-assist.

Inline Tube Chevy Brake Lines
A replacement hard line kit for ’99-’08 Chevy/GMC trucks is now available from Inline Tube. Kits can be ordered in OE steel or, for GM truck owners with corrosion issues, stainless steel. (Inline Tube recommends checking under the driver’s door frame rail, the most common corrosion location.) Lines are CNC-bent to follow OE contours. Correct fittings and flares are part of the package, and the upgraded kits also include stainless fittings.

Corbeau claims that the seat will fit a person with up to a 38-inch waist.
