LS Engine Upgrade
If you swapped a small-block Chevy engine into your Jeep before reality shows were big, Trans-Dapt has a great solution for an easy bolt-in upgrade. Toss that old two-piece rear main block and step up to an LS-series small- block. More power, better reliability and it's lighter. Now you can do it with a simple bolt-in adapter kit. The kit comes with 5/16-inch plate steel adapters and new bolts and is designed to work with Hedman Headers. Information: Hedman Performance Group, 562/921-0404,

Aluminum Case Saver
It is no secret that the Atlas transfer case is way heavier-duty than the stock Jeep transfer case. Heavier-Duty also means heavier. With heavy wheeling, that added weight adds stress to the tail end of the transmission and can result in cracks in the transmission case. The Atlas Support Ring from Roark Fab Works bolts around the tailhousing of the two and four speed Atlas, Dana 300 with Advance Adapters HD output or the JB conversion HD output and the NP231 with the Advance Adapters tailshaft kit. Information: Roark Fab Works, 606/286-0681

KC Pod
Designed by KC engineers in conjunction with critical feedback from some of the nation's top off-road racers, the KC-pod features a unique weight saving carbon fiber housing. The 70 watt HID bulb and computer-designed multi-surface reflector are protected by an unbreakable hard coated Lexan lens. The 7 -inch carbon fiber housing is fixed mounted for extreme stability. The spring loaded lens assembly not only isolates it from the harsh impacts of off-road racing, but also allows for fast, simple, and accurate aiming. An external ballast is attached directly to the light housing to provide easier wiring. Information: KC Hilites, 928/635-2607,

Brown Dog
