Pro Wire
Painless Performance Products introduces the new Pro-Series chassis wiring harnesses. Each Pro Series kit comes with new built-in circuits and included connectors/terminals that allow for customizing into a direct-fit harness. The harnesses are available with and without a bulkhead connector. Ample length is said to be provided for each circuit to give you the freedom to route and hide your wiring how you choose. The 6-gauge charge wire is designed to keep up with today’s high-amperage alternators, and front and rear ground harnesses are provided to simplify lighting circuits. All circuits are protected with LED ATC bladed fuses, which will light up if blown, making troubleshooting electrical gremlins much easier.

The JakJaw features a wide and deep cradle to provide a safer way to join your jack and vehicle. Also, the design relocates the jack further from the body of the vehicle, preventing damage to the sheet metal, fenders, or body cladding. Each JakJaw is engineered and machined-formed in the USA from heavy-duty laser-cut steel. The JakJaw is compact enough to fit into most recovery bags. Information: JakJaw, 909/794-6524, jakjaw.com
