In early Novem­ber, thou­sands of man­u­fac­tur­ers un­leash their new prod­ucts at the Spe­cialty Equip­ment Mar­ket­ing As­so­ci­a­tion (SEMA) show. Man­u­fac­tur­ers cloak these new re­leases in se­crecy un­til the show, so that no one can copy their ideas be­fore they are un­veiled. Most wheel­ers have to wait un­til then to see what’s in store. But not you. In the fol­low­ing pages, 4WDrive shines the spot­light on some cool prod­ucts that will take the stage at the up­com­ing SEMA show.

A FULL LINE OF 3 PIECE TRUCK BUMPERS DV8 Of­froad, has in­tro­duced a full line of truck bumpers for Ford, Chevy, Dodge, and Toy­ota. The truck bumper line con­sists al­most en­tirely of three piece plate bumpers. These mod­u­lar bumpers al­low for ul­ti­mate de­sign flex­i­bil­ity and al­low the de­sign­ers at DV8 Of­froad to cre­ate a stout and light­weight bumper that can ship via stan­dard ground ship­ping. The three-piece de­sign al­lows for easy re­place­ment if one of the pieces is dam­aged in an ac­ci­dent and also pro­vides the op­por­tu­nity to swap out the end pieces for a dif­fer­ent style i.e. Baja, Plate, High Clear­ance etc.

Cus­tomers will no longer have to pay up­wards of $250 for ship­ping, or have to deal with the headache that comes with ship­ping a large one-piece bumper LTL (less than truck­load). They did not sac­ri­fice style when mak­ing these bumpers mod­u­lar, us­ing ra­zor thin ad­join­ing edges to keep the full size bumper look. DV8 Of­froad prod­ucts come pow­der coated in a sand tex­ture black fin­ish. This fin­ish can be left as is or can be sanded down and painted over to colour match the bumper to the ve­hi­cle.

This full line of truck bumpers is able to ship in­ex­pen­sively and comes in at a frac­tion of the cost to the end user. For a full list of ap­pli­ca­tions and to view all of their prod­ucts visit DV8Of­froad.com or call to re­quest a cat­a­log at (951) 680-9595.

COVERKING’S NEW TON­NEAU Jeep Wran­gler own­ers who store gear be­hind the rear pas­sen­ger seat of­ten find it wet or cov­ered with dirt, es­pe­cially when driv­ing with­out the ve­hi­cle’s top. Coverking® came up with a so­lu­tion in the form of a re­mov­able ton­neau cover that is man­u­fac­tured from the com­pany’s durable Rhi­no­hide™ ma­te­rial.

Coverking’s Ton­neau Covers for Jeep Wran­glers eas­ily at­tach to the ve­hi­cle in three key ar­eas. One is from the back of the fac­tory rear seat us­ing heavy-duty straps that wrap around the head­rests. The ton­neau’s sides tuck into the ve­hi­cle’s fac­tory rear win­dow re­tain­ing groves and also use the OE fac­tory top re­tain­ing bolts to se­cure it tightly to the deck of the rear quar­ter pan­els.

The Rhi­no­hide™ fab­ric re­sists abra­sions, ac­ci­den­tal tears, and is punc­ture re­sis­tant. The ton­neau cover also wraps around the Jeep’s rear roll bar, and has a wide flap that fits over the rear tail­gate, pro­vid­ing a flex­i­ble and durable shield that’s sim­ple to in­stall yet pro­vides easy ac­cess to your gear when you’re on the trail.

The cover fits 2007 to 2018 Jeep Wran­glers and is avail­able for JK, JKU, JL and JLU mod­els in Black, Sand, and Steel Gray. More in­for­ma­tion on all Coverking’s prod­ucts specif­i­cally de­signed for Jeeps, are avail­able on the Coverking® web­site at www.coverking.com/Jeep.

TAKE A KITCHEN ON THE TRAIL Bring a func­tion­ing kitchen to the trail with the Trail Kitchen from MORryde. This com­pact bolt-in kitchen sys­tem takes up min­i­mal space to pro­vide max­i­mum stor­age in the cargo area in the back of a Jeep Wran­gler or any ve­hi­cle with a flat floor. The Trail Kitchen in­cor­po­rates a slid­ing tray and col­lapsi­ble ta­ble that pro­vides over 5 1/2 square feet of counter space along with a stor­age com­part­ment that of­fers over 300 cu­bic inches of space. Own­ers can cus­tomize the Trail Kitchen with ad­di­tional ac­ces­sories to make it their own. Ac­ces­sories can in­clude a fold-out counter, a clip-on coun­ter­top, and a Molle Grid. The Trail Kitchen can ac­com­mo­date the most pop­u­lar re­frig­er­a­tors and freez­ers in-use to­day (Dometic, ARB 50 quart, and oth­ers), can be eas­ily in­stalled, and is re­mov­able for off-road adventures or tail­gat­ing. www.morryde.com

SKID PLATES & WINCH MOUNT FOR TOY­OTA 4 RUN­NER ASFIR has de­vel­oped a new prod­uct line for the Toy­ota 4 Run­ner. It is a full set of 6 mm alu­minum skid plates, which pro­tect the front, trans­mis­sion, trans­fer, fuel tank & ex­haust.

Alu­minum is strong but flex­i­ble, so it can be straight­ened af­ter im­pact while driv­ing off-road. Alu­minum is also lighter than steel, and the weight sav­ings may im­prove your gas mileage, sav­ing you a few bucks at the pump.

All skid plates are bolted on to orig­i­nal holes in the chas­sis so there is no drilling, weld­ing or cut­ting in­volved.

The side steps bolt onto the chas­sis, but they are not just for good looks. A steel pro­file be­neath the alu­minum cover of the side step al­lows them to be used as a jack­ing point all along the side of the ve­hi­cle.

The new hid­den winch mount is in­stalled in­side the orig­i­nal bumper and looks great on the ve­hi­cle. It ac­com­mo­dates a 9500lbs winch.
