Shaft Up
Dynatrac now offers a 35-spline JK44 Axleshaft Upgrade Kit for ’07-current Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited models. The ’shafts are manufactured with rolled splines, feature a deep heat-treating for strength, and are made right here in the USA. They come fully pressed and assembled, ready for you to slide them home into the housing. Dynatrac includes new stronger wheel studs, new billet ABS tone rings, and billet steel retainers with retainer studs that are said to not spin or strip out.

New AT
Pro Comp introduces the new A/T Sport all-terrain tire. The new tire features an all-terrain rubber compound that is said to be formulated for balanced on- and off-road performance. The Side Holder Lug technology is claimed to not only provide aggressive looks but also increases traction and puncture resistance. Every Pro Comp A/T Sport comes with the Pro Comp Forever Warranty, a 60 Day Ride Assurance, and a 60,000-mile treadwear warranty. Offerings include 15- to 20-inch rim sizes up to 37 inches in diameter.

Rugged Ridge now offers a new line of Boulder Aluminum Differential Covers for Dana 44 and 30 axles. The A356-T6 cast aluminum covers are said to be designed to help protect internal components from damage caused by contact with trail debris. They also help better dissipate heat from differentials than steel covers. Rugged Ridge Boulder Aluminum Differential Covers are painted black, come with a magnetic drain plug, and feature a specially designed dipstick bolt to check the oil level.

ReadyLIFT Suspension has developed a new 4-inch SST Lift Kit for the Jeep JK Wrangler. The factory control arms are replaced with heavy-duty DOM tube steel upper and lower control arms that feature Terrain Control Technology flex joints contained in heavy-duty forged housings. Each kit includes new coils, a new front track bar and all the necessary brackets and hardware. Lifts are available with or without shocks.

JK Sway
Hellwig now offers an adjustable heavy-duty replacement sway bar for stock-height ’07-current JK Wranglers. The heat-treated, 1 1/4-inch chromoly steel sway bar fits both two- and four-door models. Each bar features three holes in the forged ends to allow the driver to pick between three different sway bar rates to match their driving style or the weight of their specific vehicle. The Hellwig sway bar is powdercoated and comes complete with polyurethane bushings and adjustable length end links. Also, the manufacturer wants to stress that its sway bars don’t lift the vehicle or make its ride stiffer—they only work to resist excess sway and body roll.

New Sizes
Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels has added four new sizes to the Deegan 38 tire line. The new sizes are LT265/75R16, LT285/75R16, LT265/70R17 and LT285/70R17, bringing the total number of sizes to 17. The Deegan 38 mud-terrain was developed with racing icon Brian Deegan. The tread is said to consist of Mickey Thompson’s proven compound and a number of unique design elements to handle water, mud, and rocky terrains. Mickey Thompson’s SideBiters protect the shoulder of the tire and provide additional traction.

Get Stepping
Need a lift when loading the roof rack or adjusting the roof-mounted lights on your JK Wrangler? The folding Hinge Step from Kargo Master Safari may be what you need to get that extra reach. The Hinge Step is made from high-grade powdercoated steel and bolts to the JK door-hinge assemblies on two- and four-door Wranglers. Each foldout step is rated for up to 300 pounds. When not in use, the step can be folded out of the way.

Flex-a-lite introduces extruded aluminum coolant expansion and overflow tanks. The tanks are made from the same extrusion as the Flex-a-fit radiator side tanks and feature a TIG-welded aluminum construction. An included clear hose allows for easy verification that there is sufficient coolant in the system. Both a 20- and 32-ounce version is available. The overflow tanks are designed to be quickly removed from a Flex-a-fit radiator to help purge air from the cooling system. All Flex-a-lite expansion overflow tanks are made here in the U.S.A.

Heavyweight JK
Are you running an EVO Manufacturing Bolt-On Coilover suspension kit on your ’07-current JK Wrangler? Have you loaded down your Jeep with an abundance of heavy body armor and other accessories? You might need heavier coil springs to support the load. EVO Manufacturing now offers heavy-duty coilover springs for those applications. The coils can be purchased as a front and rear kit or individually. The coil spring swap can be done with a floor jack and basic hand tools.
