Bolt-on Bandit
Fox has expanded its product offerings with the bolt-in Evolution Series IFP shocks and stabilizers for ’07-and-up Jeep Wrangler JKs with lift heights ranging from 11⁄2 to 6 inches. The new Evolution Series IFP shocks come in at under $100 each, yet are still packed with the quality materials, precision craftsmanship, and the expanded features Fox is known for. The new shocks and stabilizers have features found in the rest of the Fox truck and SUV lineup, such as application-specific valving, 5⁄8-inch NitroSteel shafts, and JM92 advanced suspension fluid.

Steer Clean
Keeping power steering fluid clean is key to helping the steering pump and box stay alive. KRC Power Steering offers the first power steering filter with a full Oberg filter screen. The filter ensures that clean fluid is circulated through the power steering pump without causing restriction at the inlet. The two-piece canister is 4.5 inches in diameter and 4.5-inches tall with a 4-inch Oberg coarse screen sandwiched between both halves. The top of the reservoir can be swiveled 360 degrees to point the return line in any direction for an easy install.

More Gearing
Oversized tires need numerically higher ring-and-pinion ratios to restore lost performance. Alloy USA now offers ring-and-pinion gearsets for the ’07-present Wrangler. The gears are cut from high-quality 8620 steel forgings and feature Gleason gear cutting technology. Available ratios include 3.73, 4.10, 4.56, 4.88, 5.13, and 5.38. Complete installation kits are also available.

Corrosion Stopper
Fight corrosion in your brake system with Phoenix Systems’ BrakeShot. It’s said to be the first brake fluid additive designed to fight corrosion induced by the harmful effects of copper. BrakeShot is DOT compliant and specifically formulated to prevent sticking calipers, ailing master cylinders, and other ABS braking troubles brought about by corrosion and high copper levels in the brake system. A 1-ounce shot of BrakeShot treats up to 1-liter of brake fluid, which is the average capacity of a vehicle’s braking system.

Coilover Conversion
TNT Customs introduces its weld-on coilover conversion kit for the ’97-’06 TJ Wrangler. The kit replaces the stock coil buckets, yet allows the factory inner wheelwell to stay in place.
