The new LED lights are said to provide the brightest, most dependable light for nighttime off roading and other challenging weather conditions. All Roadshock LED lights feature a lightweight die-cast aluminum housing with a high impact polycarbonate lens. Each light is IP67-rated, making it dust tight and waterproof. Roadshock lightbars are said to provide complete lighting coverage with both wide area floods and long distance spot beams. All lights feature cooling fins and anti vibration mounting points.

Power Stroking
Bullet Proof Diesel now offers H-Core EGR coolers for all model years of the Ford 6.7L Power Stroke. The new EGR coolers are said to be designed to provide durability, reliability, and longer service life. H-Core EGR cooler technology was developed to resist the common causes of EGR cooler failure. The H-Core technology allows for the natural expansion and contraction of the cooling tubes inside the EGR cooler. This limits structural failure, which can occur at the ends of the tubes, rupturing the EGR cooler, rendering it useless, and leading to possible engine component damage. The H-Core construction is also said to increase the surface area of the coolant tubes within the EGR coolers, making them more effective heat exchangers than other tubed designs.

Twenties
Icon Alloys introduces a new size for the popular Compression wheel design. A 20x10 size is now offered in a 5-on-5 bolt pattern for style-focused Jeep customers. The wheel features a 5-inch backspace and -12mm offset. These measurements are said to maintain the Compression's reduced scrub radius and maximize brake caliper clearance. Each wheel yields a 2,750-pound load rating and they are available in bronze, satin black, and titanium finishes with color-matched rock ring bolts.

Smoother Super Duty
Carli Suspension now offers a torsion sway bar for the '17-current Ford Super Duty trucks with 4.5 and 2.5 inches of lift. The new sway bars are said to hold the body steady while cutting your line through the street or dirt, providing a smoother ride thanks to the lighter-rate sway bar. The Carli torsion sway bar runs drop brackets specific to the 2.5- and 4.5-inch lifts and works in conjunction with the company's frame drops and stainless extended endlinks. There are no disconnects on the endlinks or multiple holes in the bar to change the leverage applied. It is said to be refined to work in conjunction with Carli custom-tuned suspensions. The rate is set and the bar will not hinder articulation. Info: Carli Suspension, 888/992-2754, carlisuspension.com

Camp Cook
MSR introduces a variety of new WindBurner Stove Systems and cookware options. Each WindBurner stove system option features a pressure-regulated, radiant burner and a windproof design, which is said to give users a consistently high level of performance in real-world conditions, like wind and cold. They feature a remote-canister stove design that is said to improve stability with taller and larger-volume pots, minimizing the chances of toppling over your gourmet meal or freshly boiled pot of water. The skillet and pots feature either a heat-capturing ring that protects the flame from the wind yet allows for more even cooking, or a built-in heat exchanger that ensures fast boil times. The new WindBurner systems and cookware are modular with nesting components to produce all-in-one systems that are customizable. Info: MSR, 800/531-9531, msrgear.com

Soft Shackle
Bubba Rope now offers the NexGen PRO Gator-Jaw synthetic shackle made from high modulus polyethylene fiber rope. A new slider design is said to make for an extremely easy-to-use synthetic shackle that has a higher break-rating for its size than any other synthetic shackle available today. It can be used as a safe replacement for heavy steel shackles or hooks, making it ideal for off-road use as well as industrial applications. It weighs in at only 6.5 ounces with a break-strength rating of 47,000 pounds, a strength increase of 46 percent over the original Gator-Jaw synthetic shackle. Additionally, all Gator-Jaw synthetic shackles contain no metal, so they will not rust and are lightweight enough to float. All Bubba Rope products are made in the USA.

Scale-Free Cooling
Old World Industries introduces the new Peak Antifreeze + Coolant. It's said to be designed with an advanced formula that guarantees superior lifetime protection. The proprietary formula is said to include a combination of scale-fighting inhibitors and organic acid-corrosion inhibitors to prevent scale and corrosion. These deposits can reduce coolant flow in the radiator and other parts of the cooling system, significantly reducing heat transfer and leading to engine overheating. Peak Antifreeze + Coolant is designed for use in all North American, Asian, and European passenger cars, SUVs, motorcycles, and light/medium duty trucks, regardless of make, model, or year. The universal formula is compatible for use with any type of antifreeze/coolant. Info: Old World Industries, 800/323-5440, peakauto.com

Diesel Lube
Hot Shot's Secret now offers LX4 Lubricity Extreme diesel fuel and gasoline lubricant. LX4 Lubricity Extreme is said to improve lubricity up to two times better than the leading top competitive brand by providing an increase in diesel fuel lubricity up to 56 percent. Developed for use in either low-lubricity ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD) fuel or gasoline, LX4 Lubricity Extreme is said to prevent unnecessary wear and scarring of key components inside the fuel system—particularly the injectors, the fuel pump, and upper cylinders. For any vehicle utilizing ULSD low-lubricity fuel, especially GM Duramax owners as well as semitrucks and farm equipment, LX4 is said to restore the fuel's lubricity, exceeding the Engine Manufacturers Association's recommendation for fuel lubrication.
