Roof Tools
Keep your shovel and other large tools out of your Jeep and make more space inside with the Rhino-Rack pioneer shovel/spade/axe mounting bracket. The Rhino-Rack mounting bracket attaches directly onto the Rhino-Rack Vortex crossbars or Rhino-Rack Pioneer systems. It is said to allow for easy tool installation and removal and can be used in multiple mounting configurations. The mounting brackets can be inverted to position the tool above or below the tray, and the hinged design allows mounting of a wide variety of handles. Each mounting bracket is made of steel, has a powdercoated finish, and is backed by a three-year warranty. Information: Rhino-Rack, 303/706-9700, rhinorack.com

Broken Stem Solution
Colby Valve introduces several new valve stem replacements. They are designed to be installed and replaced without breaking down the tire, which could keep a broken valve stem from putting a damper on your off-road adventure. The Colby Valve Emergency Valve requires no tools for installation, and the winged-spacer design is said to make tightening the valve as easy as twisting a wing nut. Colby Valves are made from solid brass bar stock, fit any 0.453-inch valve stem hole, and are said to be 20 times stronger than standard valve stems. Every Colby Valve is made in the USA.
