We've all seen snorkels before, or at least a picture of them. For those of us who have tried living with them, whether homemade or store-bought PVC, we've all had issues with the plastic breaking at some point or another. The River Raider snorkel is made from aluminum, so it will take an occasional tree hit, all the hardware is stainless, and unlike some other kits, you can still remove the doors after the snorkel is on.

The new Sport ST Gauges from Sunpro are touted to feature vibration-proof, air-core, electronic-driver or bourdon-tube meter movement to ensure the pointer responds accurately and rapidly to system changes. We don't know about all those big words, but they sure do look cool.

When your TJ's rear axle is rotated up for the proper pinion angle when running a CV-style driveshaft, the shock body often interferes with the axletube. JKS Rear Shock Extensions move the shock away from the tube, providing the necessary clearance. They're also useful in applications where the axle rotates at full droop.

With a 41.4mm piston, 17.5mm chrome-hardened shaft for 40 percent more displacement and a 50 percent larger rod than stock shock absorbers, these new shocks from Rough Country are built to last. An external jounce bumper and internal rebound spring provide fantastic energy absorption during extension and compression.

If you want more power, look to Dynomax. With a complete system including cold-air intakes, headers, and after-cat systems for most Jeep Wrangler and Cherokee vehicles, the combination of cold air into the engine and a better-flowing exhaust will provide driveability and power increases across the board.
