Without a doubt, SEMA is the world’s largest automotive aftermarket show. It attracts over 2,000 vendors, thousands upon thousands of visitors, and more show cars than you can imagine. For a car guy, it’s the closest thing to heaven on earth you’ll probably ever find—oh, and it’s in Las Vegas, which doesn’t suck either. Each year the automotive aftermarket launches their best new products at the show, while it took a bit to sift through the Chinese knock-offs, we ended up finding quite a bit of gear you’re going to love.

WARN has a pretty serious track record of building exciting, purposeful, and totally badass show vehicles. We’ve seen rock crawlers, lifted pickups, and tricked out Jeeps, but this is the first time we’ve seen all three of those combined into one. WARN’s usually show truck is nothing more than a vehicle with a few graphics simply applied and the company’s applicable parts installed, but the WARN AEV Double Cab Brute takes it to the next level. The Brute is a custom-built conversion for the Wrangler Unlimited JK, which stretches the chassis, and adds four full doors and a truck bed to the coil-sprung vehicle. The result, when combined with WARN’s gnarly accessories, is worth taking a closer look at. Read More→

As the first solid axle model vehicle ARB Engineers tackled for skid plates, the Jeep Wrangler JK presented many new issues that needed to be overcome. Among those, the skid plates panel had to mount in such a way that it allowed full movement of the front axle and all of its locating components during suspension cycling. Next it had to allow for the many different suspension systems and aftermarket control arms available on the market for this popular vehicle. Read More→
West Monroe, LA — The JK series Wrangler is an enjoyable daily driver with considerable off-road capabilities; a true “double duty” vehicle with mass appeal. The question is how to make a good thing better without sacrificing the on-road driving traits that have helped make this Wrangler the best-selling Jeep in history? Superlift provides the answer with their new 2.5″ lift that allows clearance for 33″ diameter tires, even during extreme off-road articulation. For 35″ tires, Superlift’s optional compression travel dampener kit is recommended to prevent tire / fender scrub during extreme articulation. Read More→
