16 n Performance & Hotrod Business n January 2015 OFF-ROAD PRODUCTS PRODUCT FOCUS: Off-road products can lift your business to new heights, offering real-world vehicle improvements and good looks to match. Many enthusiasts rely on their local shop to sug- gest and install the latest and greatest off-road equip- ment, be it shocks, axles, wheels & tires or complete lift kits. The following are some of the latest off-road prod- ucts available to the aftermarket. See which ones will get your year started off right. X-Lock Spindle Nuts Stage 8 Locking Fasteners, San Rafael, California, presents two locking spindle nuts—the XN-11, which replaces the N-11 nut on 40-spline axles used in extreme 4x4 applications, and the XMT-30, a 42mm nut that fits 1984-'89 Toyota 4-Runners and 1979-'89 Toyota pickups. Designed to replace the dual jam nut system, the nuts are constructed from 4130 chromoly steel and can withstand up to 250 foot-pounds of reverse torque. The X-Lock applications are lockable in any position so there is never a need to over-/under-torque, and are reusable. Dodge Steering Box Stabilizer Sinister Diesel, Roseville, California, presents its Dodge Steering Box Stabilizers, now including 2013-'14 applications. The system helps eliminate the infamous "death wobble" and steering play that is common in Dodge pickups by coupling the two frame rails together, providing maximum support and stability for the steering box. Sinister's stabilizer fastens at the absolute highest leverage point of the two frame rails for the utmost in strength and durability. The kit includes all of the hardware needed to do the install, usually in less than an hour. JK Performance Aluminum Radiator Mishimoto, New Castle, Delaware, offers an All-Aluminum Performance Radiator for 2007- '14 Jeep JK Wrangler applications. Precision-engineered for direct bolt-in fitment that requires no modification to the vehicle, the radiator provides significant increases in efficiency with a 1.5-inch-thick core and 160-percent increase in volume over the factory radiator. The Mishimoto Jeep JK radiator is constructed from high-quality, aircraft-grade aluminum with TIG-welded end tanks and a 100-percent brazed aluminum core to handle the rigors of off-roading. Ram Dual Steering Stabilizer Kit BDS Suspension, Coldwater, Michigan, offers a redesigned Dual Fox Steering Stabilizer Mount for 2008-'13 factory 4-link-equipped Ram 2500/3500 trucks. Engineered to mimic the styling and high clearance design of the 2013-'14 factory radius arm-equipped Ram 2500/3500 trucks, the system improves drivability of lifted Ram trucks by reducing front end shimmy caused by oversized tires. The center bracket is built from 3/8-inch steel and provides improved ground clearance without interfering with steering or track bar components, (minimum 2-inch lift).
