A round-up of the latest gear.
Automatic Tire Deflators
The Staun II Automatic Tire Deflators makes airing down to the proper pressure for the trail a simple process. Adjustable to pressure settings of 3 to 50 psi, they screw onto any standard metal or rubber valve stem and deflate the tires while in motion, eliminating long waits for airing down. Once they get to the preset pressure, each Staun II will shut off automatically.

Jeep Dana 35 Disc Conversion System
The new D154 Pro Series rear disc brake conversion system from Wilwood covers the full range of non-ABS Dana 35 axles used over a wide range of Jeeps. Stopping power comes from 12.1-inch-diameter rotors and forged billet two-piston GM D154 calipers that easily stop oversized tires. Wilwood’s BP-10 compound “Smart Pads” round out the kit with a rotor-friendly metallic composite that offers high friction and low dust.
