National Outdoor Accessories has introduced its 4 In 1 bumper. It’s more than a bumper, it’s a bumper system. It allows you the ability to convert your two- or four-door JK into a camper that can easily sleep two. You can add a hitch haul to carry extra gear, convert the frame into a hardtop stand so one person can remove the hardtop or use the bumper as a toolbox for extra storage. The system is designed so that all the frame components fit inside the bumper. The 4 In 1 bumper is completely bolt-on so there is no drilling required.

There are more than 20 applications available.
Vision X Light Bars are now more versatile with the release of the brand new End Cap Mounts.

The end cap mounting bolts are manufactured from high-grade stainless steel, utilizing Nylok nuts and a shaker washer for a tight and secure fit.

It’s hard to deny the usefulness of a vise, but it’s sometimes difficult to take with you on the trail. Now Wilton makes it easy with the All Terrain Vice (ATV). The ATV can transform anything with a 2-inch receiver hitch into an instant workstation, without interfering with the tailgate. A patented mounting bracket (provided) also converts the ATV into a bench vise when attached to a workbench, trailer, or other stable work surface.
Not a Bumper
Don’t call the Pronghorn MFES-JK C5 a bumper. Pronghorn considers it a front-end system. It’s a modular, umm, bumper made in the USA for ’07-to-present Wranglers. It’s built from fully boxed 6061-T6 aluminum and weighs just a bit more than the plastic factory bumper. The full-width system is targeted towards overlanders, and a stubby system is available for more trail-centric users. The C5 includes many standard accessories and everything about the system (bumper) is easily upgradable and interchangeable. You can opt for any model and upgrade as you go to create a unique front-end system (bumper) all your own.
Flare with Flair
Routing new hard brake, tranny, and fuel lines can be a ton of work, but Inline Tube can make it easier with its Metric and 45 Degree Flaring Tool. The tool includes the dies needed to form both double flares and metric bubble flares in steel, copper, aluminum, and stainless steel tubing. Dies are included for 3⁄16-inch, 1⁄4-inch, 5⁄16-inch, and 3⁄8-inch standard lines. Metric sizes include 4.75mm, 6mm, 8mm, and 10mm.
