Tied TuffyWe all know and love the Tuffy security consoles and lock boxes. Now the company has come to market with a new tie-down system featuring the same great steel construction, and the same durable powder coating. The multi-point tie down rails and modular gear anchors are marketed as accessories for Tuffy boxes, but they could easily be used in your Jeep on any flat surface that you want a steel tie down point (instead of the cheesy factory tie down points). Information: Tuffy Security Products, 800/348-8339,

Braking JKFinally you can get off the shelf braided stainless steel brake lines for your JK. Available in 0-1 , 4, and 6 inches of lift flavors, these DOT compliant lines include zinc-plated fittings, Teflon inner liner and 308 stainless steel braid which protects from rocks, tree branches, and slipping wrenches. Simply bolt them on; bleed your brakes and go. Information: Russel Performance Products, 800/416-8628,

Track Bar KeeperJKS developed the Rear Trackbar Brace to provide Jeep owners with a permanent solution to this problem. The mount is constructed of high strength 7-guage steel that has been precision cut and formed using CNC equipment. The heavy-duty design connects the factory track bar mount to the axle with 45-degree reinforcement wings, which triangulates the mounting configuration to resist lateral track bar forces that would otherwise tear the weak factory mount from the axle. Information: JKS Manufacturing, 308/762-6949,

Trailsport SpacersIf you are looking to put bigger tires on your stock rims, or are having problems with the tires rubbing your springs, frame or control arms, you may need a set of wheel spacers. Trail Sport's Billet Aluminum Spacers are available from 1 1/4 to 2-inches thick in many available bolt patterns and are made from 6061 aluminum. Information: Trail Sport Unlimited, 909/370-0144,

Hemi HeadersFor the guy that wants to put the engine in his JK that Jeep should have, 4 Wheeler Supply now offers ceramic coated Hemi headers that fit the JK frame. They feature 1 3/4-inch primaries funneling into a 3-inch collector and fit the 5.7-, 6.1-, and 6.4-liter Hemi engines. The long tube design increases flow and low end torque. Information: 4 Wheeler Supply, 800/954-0065,

Two LowNow you can modify your stock JK 241OR transfer case to include a 2-Low position in the shift range. This affords a tighter turning radius and eliminates most steering bind associated with 4WD. It is a completely internal modification and won't affect your stock shifter except for adding a detent between neutral and 4-Lo. Information Tera Manufacturing Inc, 801/288-2585,

Cherokee SkidsKilby Enterprises, long known for quality on-board air systems is branching out into skidplates for Cherokees. The company is now offering a gas tank and a transfer case skidplate made out of HRPO 3/16-inch steel with Kilby's famous quality control. The gas tank skid features increased departure angle and compatibility with the OEM trailer hitch and OEM gas tank while the transfer case skid uses factory holes and mounting hardware for a seamless installation. Information: Kilby Enterprises, 818/565-5945,
