All-Ter­rain Tire

Bridge­stone an­nounces its next-gen­er­a­tion Bridge­stone Dueler A/T Revo 3 tire for crossovers, SUVs, and pickup trucks. The Dueler A/T Revo 3 is said to be en­gi­neered for smooth han­dling on the high­way while also of­fer­ing off-road ca­pa­bil­ity.

The Dueler A/T Revo 3 fea­tures all-new Trac­tion Claw tech­nol­ogy for bet­ter off-road han­dling and snow per­for­mance. A new tread pat­tern with large tread blocks and stag­gered shoul­der lugs gives the tire an ag­gres­sive look and is said to pro­vide longer-last­ing per­for­mance. The Dueler A/T Revo 3 is de­signed with open shoul­der slots to help re­duce the risk of hy­droplan­ing. It is avail­able in 37 sizes and is backed by a 60,000-mile lim­ited tread­wear war­ranty.

Digital Com­mu­ni­ca­tion

Rugged Ra­dios in­tro­duces the RDH-16C digital 5-watt hand­held two-way ra­dio.

The RDH-16C ra­dio is ca­pa­ble of both digital and ana­log sig­nals and comes pre-pro­grammed with a se­lec­tion of both ana­log and digital chan­nels. Avail­able in ei­ther UHF or VHF, the RDH-16C hand­held ra­dio reaches dis­tances of 1-3 miles de­pend­ing on the ter­rain.

JK Blow-By

Mishi­moto now offers the new Baf­fled Oil Catch Can for the ’12-’18 Jeep Wran­gler. The 2-ounce can is said to re­duce the amount of harm­ful blow-by oil that coats the in­take tracts and cakes your valves with car­bon de­posits. In­ter­nal air divert­ers slow the in­com­ing air for more ef­fec­tive air/oil sep­a­ra­tion as a 50-mi­cron bronze fil­ter helps fil­ter that air, and an in­ter­nal alu­minum baf­fle pre­vents any caught con­tent from be­ing re­cir­cu­lated back into the sys­tem. The one-piece, 2.5mm-thick steel bracket was said to be spe­cially en­gi­neered to with­stand a heavy amount of move­ment and abuse. The mount is se­cured on the chas­sis. Each kit in­cludes black rub­ber hoses, a black pow­der­coated bracket, and is backed by a life­time war­ranty. In­for­ma­tion: Mishi­moto, 302/762-4503, mishi­
