DECEMBER 2018 THE SHOP 67 Grille Guards ARIES, Eau Claire, Wisconsin, presents its line of truck, Jeep and SUV Grille Guards featuring one-piece, 1-1/2-inch-diameter, heavy-wall tubing in high-strength carbon steel. The guards include: durable semigloss black powder-coat finish for rust resistance; two predrilled holes in the crossbar for mounting LED light bars or work lights; removable headlight cages for extra protection and a customizable look; and vertical rubber stripping along the risers to help maintain a clean finish. The no-drill, vehicle-specific applications provide a custom fit. Camry Sport Springs H&R Special Springs, Bellingham, Washington, introduces Sport Springs for 2018 Toyota Camry models.

The long base kits have 350 square feet of insulation. Body Mounts Daystar Products, Phoenix, presents new Body Mounts for 1999-2018 Ford F-250 and F-350 trucks. Precision- engineered to be a direct replacement for factory mounts, the body mounts are constructed in the USA of a polyurethane blend that helps insulate the cab while maintaining improved holding power.
