MBRP Intercooler Pipes
The MBRP Cummins 3-inch mandrel-bent intercooler pipes are engineered to provide a 144 cfm of increase in flow per side over stock for faster turbo spooling and lower exhaust gas temperatures (EGTs). Made from polished 6061 aluminum, each pipe includes four-ply couplings and spring-loaded, constant-tension clamps to prevent leaks and blow-offs. MBRP considers these driver- and passenger-side pipes must-haves for Cummins trucks with turbo or electronic modifications.

Proform Diagnostic Tach/Shift Light
The new programmable Digital Shift Light from Proform also functions as a diagnostic tachometer. Removing the light from its base allows the rpm display to be viewed through the windshield during engine tuning. Only 41⁄4 inches long, the Digital Shift light has three LEDs. Illumination point can be set between 100 and 12,000 rpm, and the unit works on engines that have one to 12 cylinders. The kit also includes a three-wire harness, a mounting base, and installation instructions.

Westin LED Bars
Westin’s Low Profile Double Row LED Light Bars feature two rows of 3-watt Osram LED chips encased in a 6063 extruded-aluminum housing. Lengths range from 2 to 50 inches. Beam patterns are either flood or flex, combining wide coverage and long distance. Housings are powdercoated, and the lenses are made to be shatter- and scratch-resistant. Kits include a wiring harness with a connector, a switch, an in-line fuse, side mounting brackets, and hardware.

ORO JK Hood-Stopper
The Hop-Stopper from Off Road Only is engineered to eliminate the annoying JK hood hop. It mounts below the steel grille shell using two bolts. A fixture is included for proper positioning of the two 1⁄4-inch holes that must be drilled on either side of the hood hook opening. Manufactured in the USA, the Hop-Stopper is made from corrosion-resistant stainless steel and comes with zinc-coated hardware. It is designed to work with stock and aftermarket hoods.

Vision-X Cannon LED
This new 6.7-inch round LED is manufacturer-rated at 50 watts and 2,520 feet of usable light. The beam pattern is a 10-degree spot. Replacement polycarbonate covers change the beam from spot to Euro to flood. Available filters are clear, blue, amber, and red. The Cannon is IP-68 waterproof-rated. Kits include wiring harnesses.

ARB Kakadu Tent
The ARB Kakadu rooftop tent has been designed with warmer climates in mind. For increased ventilation, the side windows add airflow and increase natural light. Material is poly/cotton rip stop canvas with polyurethane coating for water resistance. Windows and doors have insect screens. The Kakadu is designed to mount on popular roof racks and includes a high-density foam mattress and an aluminum ladder. Packed dimensions are 55 by 471⁄4 by 8 inches.

Superlift Ram HD Leveling
Superlift’s 21⁄2-inch Level-It kit for the ’14 Ram 2500 and 3500 features fabricated steel spacers that bolt to the coil spring towers, fitting up to 33-inch-tall tires. Additionally, relocation brackets for the factory shock absorbers’ bottom mounts ensure adequate shock extension travel. Unless the shocks are relocated, they will prematurely top out. Components are finished in black powdercoat and zinc plating.

PSC JK Steering, Trans Coolers
Designed for easy installation, the PSC power steering and transmission cooler kit mounts in front of the radiator, behind the grille. The coolers are designed to prevent premature steering and transmission failures due to larger tires. The kit includes two 19-row coolers, plumbing and fittings, and mounting brackets with hardware.

Automotive TouchUp Paints
Automotive TouchUp custom-mixes aerosol paint to match factory colors. The color-match is guaranteed. Automotive TouchUp claims that name-brand paints are loaded into the 12-ounce cans, which have pressure-sensitive nozzles for an evenly atomizes spray fan. An optional gun-style trigger is also available.

Rancho Ram 4-Inch Lift
The new Rancho Ram 1500 kit is designed and constructed for maximum durability and performance. The kit includes a one-piece subframe, constructed from laser-cut, 1⁄4-inch-thick steel. Other components include coil springs, extended brake hoses, CNC-machined steering knuckles, and a set of tie-rod ends. This kit is intended to easily accommodate 34.5-inch tires. Rancho claims that it will not affect the vehicle’s Electronic Stability Control System and allows for reuse of the stock wheels.

Road Armor JK Stubby Bumper
This new JK one-piece winch bumper is manufactured from 3⁄16-inch hot rolled steel, with 1⁄4-inch-thick frame-mounting plates. Solid shackle loops are made from 7⁄8-inch stock and are welded inside and outside the frame. The integral winch plate is engineered to accommodate up to 12,500-pound winch. A recess for a 10-inch LED bar is also included.

Tub O’Towels
Tub O’Towels wipes are marketed as bigger, stronger, and tougher than other wipes. Even then, they’re sized to fit in a toolbox or glove compartment in a choice of 7x8- or 10x12-inch sheets. The fiber-weave wipes are soaked in a solution that includes nine citrus-based cleaning ingredients. Paint, grease, and dirt are some of the messes Tub O’Towels are formulated to clean up. Skin-friendly ingredients include lanolin, aloe vera, and vitamin E. The towels are made in the United States.

Mickey Thompson Deegan 38
Mickey Thompson’s new light-truck tire was developed with five-time Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series champion and 16-time X Games medalist Brian Deegan. The Deegan 38 is an aggressive mud-terrain that’s designed to have respectable street manners and impressive style. The tread has beveled edges to enhance self-cleaning; wide grooves to channel water away; large center elements for better grip, even wear, and a quieter ride; and signature SideBiters sidewalls. The sidewalls also include high-tensile ply cords for increased sidewall integrity and improved heat-dissipation. The Deegan 38 will launch in 13 popular sizes.
