46 THE SHOP NOVEMBER 2018 UTV Folding Cover Extang Truck Bed Covers, Ann Arbor, Michigan, a Truck Hero Inc. company, presents the all- new Solid Fold 2.0 UTV Edition folding cover for the Polaris Ranger. The system fully covers the cargo box and folds back to haul heavy loads. Designed for strength and weather protection, the cover features an articulating front hinge that allows for full bed access and exterior tie-down cleats for maximum versatility. JL Rear Step AMP Research, Tustin, California, offers its new BedStep cargo area step for 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL models. Designed to provide safe and easy access to the Wrangler's cargo areas and roof rack, the BedStep supports up to 300 pounds. It compactly frame-mounts under the rear bumper, keeping it out of the way when off-roading, and easily pushes down and folds up with the nudge of a foot. The system includes a rugged, die-cast aluminum linkage assembly and a composite step for corrosion protection, weight reduction, strength, stability and durability. JL Rear Sway Bar Hellwig Products, Visalia, California, offers a new bolt-on Rear Sway Bar for 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL models. Designed to improve handling and safety with little effect on overall suspension travel and articulation, the 7/8-inch-diameter rear sway bar is forged from 4140 chromoly steel, heat-treated for durability and include a forged two-hole adjustable end for tuning. Each bar is finished in a hammertone powder- coat and includes upgraded polyurethane bushings. The system reuses the factory end links and mounting points for easy installation. JL Bumpers Smittybilt, Compton, California, offers Gen2 XRC/SRC Bumpers for new Jeep Wrangler JL applications. The hardcore stubby bumpers provide increased clearance and have raised corners, allowing for more aggressive approach angles in extreme conditions with oversized tires. They are constructed with 3/16-inch cold rolled steel with a stylish textured black finish and include integrated light mounts and room to accommodate up to a 12,000-pound winch. Solid D-ring and jack point mounts welded on the inside and out provide strength in recovery situations. Powersports Winches Warn Industries, Clackamas, Oregon, introduces the WARN AXON and WARN VRX powersports winch lines, created specifically for ATVs and side-by-sides. AXON winches include Motactor—a combination of a powerful motor and digital contactor that increases performance and efficiency. A new clutch system based on the WARN hub lock allows for easy transitions between free-spool and engaged winch modes. Meanwhile, the VRX offers full IP68 waterproofing and stout, all-metal construction with a gloss black powder-coated finish. All-Purpose Truck Tire Dick Cepek Tires & Wheels, Stow, Ohio, introduces the Trail Country EXP to its light truck tire line. Based on the original Trail Country tire, the premium 2-ply, all- terrain hybrid Trail Country EXP features a new tread pattern with an 18.5/32-inch depth. Features include: large surface area tread elements, wide voids, ultra- thin interlocking siping, stone ejector ribs, notched and stepped outer lug and a silica-reinforced compound that offers on-road tread wear, cut and chip resistance, and improved wet handling and braking performance.
