Three-Link ZJ

Iron Rock Off Road now offers the Rock-Link three-link front long-arm upgrade for the ’93-’96 Jeep ZJ Grand Cherokee. The completely bolt-on subframe is made from 1/4-inch steel and the arms are made from 2-inch-diameter, 5/16-inch-wall DOM tubing. The subframe is said to tuck up as tight as possible for improved ground clearance. The control arms are fully adjustable to allow for proper axle location and wheel alignment. The lower arms feature an inboard bend to clear the tires when turning. No welding is required for installation. Information: Iron Rock Off Road, 877/919-5337,

New Cooling

Flex-A-Lite introduces a new line of performance radiators. The new radiators feature extruded tube core technology to replace the traditional single-row, two-row, three-row, and four-row tube core designs. The extruded tube core design is said to be much stronger and increases contact area between the coolant and the extruded tubes for better heat dissipation. The cooling fins have louver patterns cut into them to direct airflow, which is also said to improve heat rejection and cooling. The Flex-A-Lite extruded tube core radiators have a 100-psi burst rating, making them significantly more durable than anything else on the market. Radiators are available both with and without a Flex-A-Lite electric fan. Direct-fit radiators and direct-fit radiators with electric fans are available for popular applications. Each Flex-A-Lite extruded tube core radiator comes with a two-year transferable warranty. Information: Flex-A-Lite, 253/922-2700,

HD JK Coils

American Expedition Vehicles now offers all-new 4.5-inch-lift high-capacity coil springs. They are designed to be a direct-fit upgrade for customers with an AEV 4.5-inch DualSport SC/RS suspension system on their ’07-’18 Jeep Wrangler JK. The coils are designed with the overlander in mind and feature a frequency-tuned, progressive-rate coil wind, which is said to provide the increased load carrying capacity necessary for heavily loaded vehicles, while retaining ride quality, handling, and off-road articulation. They are only available as a matching set of front and rear springs in order to preserve optimal vehicle handling dynamics. The relative rate/frequency of the front coil springs verses the rear springs is said to be a crucial part of safe vehicle handling. Information: American Expedition Vehicles, 248/926-0256,

Raging Bumper

Rampage Products has extended the Rock Rage bumper category with a new winch-ready front bumper designed for the ‘07-‘18 Jeep Wrangler JK and JK Unlimited. The bumper features raised angled ends for ground clearance and tire clearance during articulation. Each bumper has been fabricated from 3/16-inch-thick steel, which is hosed with a light textured black powdercoat finish. Other features include an integrated winch plate, round bull bar, reinforced D-ring shackle mounts, mounting tabs for auxiliary lights, and 4-inch receptacles that allow installation of OE-style foglights. The Rock Rage JK Bumper comes backed by a three-year limited warranty. Information: Rampage Products, 800/241-7219,

JL Coil Bow Correction

Daystar introduces the Bow Correction Coil Isolators for the ’18 Jeep Wrangler JL. Some aftermarket lift kits for the JL use the OEM coil isolator, and in some cases that has caused the front coil springs to flex outward and rub against parts of the suspension. The Daystar isolators are designed to correct the geometry of your aftermarket lift kit’s front coil springs to eliminate the bowing and rubbing. Bow Correction Coil Isolators are said to install quickly without specialized tools and are covered by Daystar’s Go Everywhere warranty. Isolators are also available specifically for the Mopar lift kit as well. Information: Daystar, 800/595-7659,

OBD 2.0 Readout

AutoMeter now offers the DashLink 2.0. It’s said to feature a refreshed user interface created with user input from the original AutoMeter DashLink app. This new DashLink update retains all the same features as before, but is said to be more user-friendly. You can data log what your vehicle is doing, determine: 0-60, 1/4-mile, horsepower, and braking performance. You can map where your vehicle has been, how it performed, and how many g’s you experienced with real-time track mapping. You can also monitor your fuel economy/MPG, see how long your vehicle has idled, how many aggressive accelerations or braking events have occurred, and how your vehicle was driven. Other features include the ability to instantly read, diagnose, and clear engine codes and clear troublesome check engine lights, all with the plug-and-play functionality of the DashLink system. Each DashLink system comes with the OBDII module ready to work out of the box along with a quick-start guide for operation. Information: AutoMeter, 866/248-6356,

Fiber Fender

Jeepster Guru introduces right and left fiberglass front fenders for the ’66-’71 Jeepster and Commando models. The fenders are brand-new reproduction parts. They feature a smooth gelcoat and indents for marking. The holes are not cut, so the fenders are said to fit all applications and modifications. They are designed to be completely bolt-on and are ready for paint. The inner and outer fender are joined and shipped in one box. Information: Jeepster Guru, 303/946-3313,

AZ Off-Road

Rugged Routes has released an Arizona map on an SD card designed exclusively for Lowrance GPS devices. It consists of 100 trails based on the Guide to Arizona Backroads & 4x4 Trails guidebook by Funtreks. The map works with Lowrance HDS and Elite Ti GPS Units and includes aerial imagery of the trails and trailheads. The trails are color-coded according to difficulty, and the map displays waypoints mentioned in the book. The waypoints are loaded with information, such as trail introductions, optional off-shoots, photo spots, and hikes. Other popular Rugged Routes maps include San Bernardino National Forest, California; Johnson Valley, California; Glamis Dunes, California; Funtreks Guide to Colorado; and Funtreks Guide to Moab, Utah. Information: Rugged Routes, 909/695-0477,

Bead Keeper

Method Race Wheels now offers the all-new Trail Series MR701 wheel. The one-piece wheel is made from T6 heat-treated 356 aluminum. Strategically placed grooves, called Bead Grip Technology, can be found on both the inner and outer bead seats. The grooves are designed to engage with the tire bead for increased grip while running lower tire pressures. In addition to the grooves, the safety hump has a more aggressive profile, which is said to further stabilize the tire bead in the seat. The inner lip is reinforced to help support heavy loads. Load ratings are 2,650 pounds for 5- and 6-lug applications and 3,640 pounds for 8-lug wheels. Wheel sizes offered include 15x7, 16x8, 17x7.5, and 17x8.5 in Method bronze and matte black finishes. Information: Method Race Wheels, 866/779-8604,

Renegade Bed

Rugged Ridge introduces the C3 Cargo Cover for ’15-’18 Jeep Renegade BU models. It’s said to be built on the same principles of versatility as the popular C3 Cargo Covers for Wrangler JK models, giving Renegade owners the ability to protect the vehicle interior cargo space from the wear and tear that SUVs are exposed to during normal use. The C3 Cargo Cover offers wall-to-wall coverage of the Renegade cargo area, including the rear seat backs, carpet, and side panels. It is constructed of heavyweight UV-protected PVC polyester fabric that resists water and features a side retention system to keep it in place, even when loading and unloading cargo. Information: Rugged Ridge, 770/614-6101,
