Jeep Drop in Mirror 220x220 Steinjäger Magnet Drop in Side Mirror for Jeep WranglersSteinjäger, Inc. introduces a new ‘patent pending’ drop-in mirror to fit JK and TJ Jeep Wranglers. This new product uses a magnet to lock the mirror in place in the door’s upper hinge, eliminating the need for tools or set screws.
Drop In Door Side Mirrors have been popular for a number of years with Jeep owners, but most designs require the use of a set screw or other threaded attachment methods to keep the mirror locked in place once it’s installed in the door’s upper hinge.  Steinjäger’s new mirror uses a high strength magnet, in conjunction with a highly toleranced pin that fits inside of the hinge, to hold the mirror firmly in place just by simply dropping it into the hinge.  The mirrors are manufactured in the USA.  Steinjäger will personalize the mirrors for an additional charge.

PML Ram diff cover 220x220 Ram 2500 & 3500 Trucks Can Have Extra Capacity and  Clearance with New PML Front CoverInglewood, CA – PML designed an extra capacity cover for the front differentials on 2003 to 2012 Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 trucks. This cover is a bolt on replacement for the stock cover on the American Axle Manufacturing (AAM) 9 1/4 inch ring gear differential used in these trucks.

Because of many clearance problems with steering, U-bolts, and suspension , PML maintained a low profile with partial fins with this cover. Starting in about 2008, Dodge added a U-bolt to the front end design that would contact larger aftermarket covers when at the limit of the steering. This U-bolt was retrofitted on early year trucks during service visits. The suspension on Megacabs would also contact a larger cover when the truck was loaded. PML designed this cover to avoid these problems. Read More→

ICON RAM 2500/3500 Coilover Conversion Systems

Friday, February 14th, 2014

ICON Ram 3500 with coilovers 220x132 ICON RAM 2500/3500 Coilover Conversion SystemsThe 2003-2013 RAM 2500 / 3500 chassis is a solid foundation that makes for a competent heavy-duty work truck or a tough weekend warrior that’s able to take some serious off-road abuse. While these heavy-duty RAM trucks perform quite well off the lot, ICON Vehicle Dynamics engineers have spent a significant amount of time at the drawing board developing suspension systems to extract higher levels of performance. ICON’s new 3-5” Coilover Conversion Systems address the issue of a lack of adjustment in OEM components that may force RAM owners to set up their trucks for one situation or another. For example, maximum wheel travel and comfort may be experienced at a particular ride height, but when a winch setup or a snow plow is outfitted to the truck the front end is susceptible to a loss in height or ride quality. With the features of the ICON Coilover Conversion System, RAM owners can now make a simple change to the coil adjuster to acquire the look and performance they desire without adding parts or sacrificing ride quality.

The RAM Coilover Conversion System has been tested and tuned to offer comfort, stability, and drivability over a wide range of terrains. 2.5” remote reservoir coilover shocks provide exceptional ride characteristics while tubular steel or billet aluminum link arms add strength and decrease bushing bind. ICON offers several staged systems that include upgraded components and additional features along with all parts required for a straightforward install. ICON’s unique CDC (Compression Damping Control) Valve can be incorporated into the RAM Coilover Conversion System for the ultimate in adjustability and user-defined tuning.
