Stroking 4.0L

Looking to replace your tired Jeep 4.0L inline-six engine or do you just want more punch when you mash the throttle? Golen Engine Service may have what you need. Golen offers a direct-replacement 4.6L long-block for any Jeep that came from the factory with a 4.0L. Your stock Jeep 4.0L intake, throttle body, header, exhaust, and ECU fit the Golen 4.6L stroker. A carbureted and aftermarket fuel-injected 4.6L engine is also available for the earlier model CJ. Each engine is said to produce 270 hp and 300 plus lb-ft of torque without sacrificing drivability or fuel economy. The Golen 4.6L stroker comes with a three-year warranty.

JK Beadlock

AEV Conversions introduces the all-new A356 T6 cast aluminum alloy 17x8.5 Borah DualSport wheel for the Jeep Wrangler JK. The Borah is available in a variety of configurations with either a fully-functional beadlock ring for running very low tire pressures off-road, a protection ring designed for street use as well as wheel protection off-road, or no ring for a minimalist look. Both the beadlock and protection rings are interchangeable, giving you the ability to run a protection ring on the street or upgrade to a functional beadlock ring for off-road use. The Borah is available in either an onyx black or onyx black with a machined finish. The optional beadlock ring and protection ring feature a silver finish that can be painted for a custom appearance. Information: AEV Conversions, 248/926-0256, aev-conversions.com

Deployable Shelf

Bestop introduces the new Roughrider Tailgate Shelf. It was developed specifically for ’07-’17 Jeep two-door Wrangler and four-door Wrangler Unlimited models. It can be converted into a shelf or a bin, yet still fits onto the inside of the rear gate. The RoughRider Tailgate Shelf is made from a heavy-duty composite housing and includes a polyester mesh pouch that can be removed to create a traditional shelf or to turn your Jeep’s tailgate into a work space. It’s said to open with one free hand by simply pushing a button. The spring-loaded shelf then automatically deploys. It measures 25 by 14 by 4 1/2 inches when closed and can be installed with no drilling. Information: Bestop, 800/845-3567, bestop.com

Fender Armor

Rugged Ridge now offers a new line of Armor Fenders for ’07-’16 Jeep Wrangler models. The new front and rear fenders attach high on the body for increased tire clearance and feature beveled edges with hidden weld seams. Armor Fenders are constructed of a steel plate and finished with a black powdercoat. The front fenders are notched to allow use of both OE and aftermarket hood latches and are stamped with a screened vent behind the wheel opening to help vent engine heat. The two-piece rear fenders feature a separate rear tail light guard for added protection. Each Rugged Ridge Armor Fender is backed by a five-year limited warranty.

Axle Alignment

Synergy Manufacturing introduces a heavy-duty, adjustable, front track bar designed as a factory-style replacement for Jeep TJ, LJ, XJ, ZJ, and MJ applications. It mounts directly to the OE tapered track bar mount on the frame, but requires the axle mount to be drilled to 9/16-inch for added strength. A recommended weld-on gusset is included for axle bracket reinforcement. The track bar fits Jeeps with lifts of 0 to 4 inches. Each track bar is made in the USA from 1 3/8-inch 1018 cold-rolled solid round bar stock and includes new grade 8 mounting bolts and hardware. The Synergy double-adjuster sleeve and pinch bolt assembly allows for adjustment of the track bar length without removal from vehicle. A powdercoat finish provides corrosion resistance.

Remanufactured Splitter

Summit Racing Equipment now offers UMC ReTech remanufactured transfer cases for nearly all popular Jeep models. Each transfer case is said to meet or exceed OE-specs. The remanufacturing process begins with an OEM core that’s prepped using UMC ReTech’s Hydro Blast process. The case halves are wet sanded to ensure perfect mating surfaces and then sealed with Loctite gasket eliminator and primer. Each case receives backlash, mesh load, leak, and rotational torque testing. Some transfer cases are available with a slip-yoke eliminator kit already installed. Each UMC ReTech transfer case comes with a 12-month/12,000-mile warranty. Information: Summit Racing Equipment, 800/230-3030, summitracing.com
