If your Jeep is rolling on massive tires beyond 44-inches in diameter, then you likely have some extremely hefty axles, maybe even Rockwell 5-tons. To make these axles more streetable, Boyce Equipment now offers a manual locking hub set with CTIS adapters. The locking hubs fit the BMY Harsco 5-ton 900 Series A2 model with the central tire inflation system. A locking hub kit for the non-CTIS axle is also available.
No Limit Disconnect
EVO Manufacturing introduces the No Limits on Demand Rubicon Swaybar Disconnect for the Jeep Wrangler JK Rubicon models. It replaces the failure-prone factory Rubicon electric sway bar disconnect with an air-actuated disconnect mechanism. The EVO No Limits on Demand is said to give you the ability to disconnect and reconnect the sway bar at any time, in any gear, and with any amount of articulation. It’s said that there is no need to bounce the vehicle, no pins to pull, no fighting to reinstall, no sway bar links to remove, and no punctured tires from loose flinging sway bar links. The EVO No Limits on Demand requires on-board air (not included). It’s said to work well with an ARB compressor and solenoid.

Like all MRT Performance exhaust systems, the new Wrangler system is designed, engineered and manufactured at the MRT facilities in Plymouth, Michigan.
Steinjager introduces its tube doors for ’81-’86 CJ-7 and CJ-8 Jeeps. The main construction of the door is 1 1/4-inch tubing. Custom-machined door hinges are said to allow for easy switching from your stock door to the tube door. The factory CJ mirror can be swapped over to the new tube door with the supplied hardware and a few common hand tools. A quick release detent pin is held to the door with a weather resistant cable to ensure that you don't lose your door latch pin. The doors are made in the USA and available in a rainbow of different colors to match your Jeep.
OR-Fab now offers the HD Crossmember for the ’07-’16 Jeep Wrangler JK. The crossmembers are made from 3/16-inch-thick steel plate and feature full box-welded construction. It is a direct bolt-on replacement for the factory unit and is said to be 50-percent stronger. Additional rigidity and strength come from the provided hardware and DOM inserts used on the mounting points of the frame. The slim design is said to provide 1/4-inch more ground clearance than the factory unit. All crossmembers are made in the USA and feature a black textured powdercoat finish.

Bestop introduces the Powerboard and Powerboard NX automatic electric running boards for the Jeep Wrangler JK. The Powerboard is said to utilize a torsion bar design to deliver smooth operation and a factory-quality fit against a Wrangler’s rocker panel. The Powerboard NX applies wireless technology to sense when the boards should deploy or retract. This is said to greatly simplify the wiring and reduce installation time. Linkage arm thickness is said to have been increased by 70 percent for stability and strength. The rod pins and self-lubricating linkage bearings have increased in size too.
Centerforce now offers a Dual Friction Kit for the 3.8L V-6 engine found in the ’07-’11 Jeep Wrangler JK. Heavy use and the addition of larger tires can significantly decrease the life of the stock clutch. The Centerforce Dual Friction Kit is said to improve JK clutch life. It’s also said to be engineered to be street-friendly while improving low-speed off-road performance. A new heavy-duty 50-pound billet steel flywheel replaces the factory flywheel to help maintain engine rpm in rough terrain. Each flywheel is balanced and meets SFI competition specifications, while the Dual Friction clutch is said to provide greater holding capacity. The Dual Friction Jeep JK clutch kits are said to be a direct-replacement for the stock parts. Each kit comes complete with an alignment tool, pressure plate, friction disc, flywheel, pilot bearing, throw-out bearing and bolts.
Rugged Ridge introduces the new C3 Rear Cargo Covers to provide protection for the rear cargo area of the ’07-’16 Jeep JK Wrangler.

The split fold feature allows for 40-60 rear seat lowering, and offers coverage with your rear seat up, partially lowered or fully lowered. A flip out cover flap keeps dirt from falling into the rear tailgate door gap. The built-in front curtain wall helps to keep items and pets from entering the front seat area. A side retention system helps ensure that the cover stays in place as you load or unload. Rugged Ridge C3 Rear Cargo Covers are available for both the two- and four-door JK.
