Why You Want It:
This BladeRunner turbocharger features a gold anodized billet compressor wheel that’s lighter and stronger than the stock cast wheel to help provide quicker “spool-up” and higher airflow than the stock turbo. The compressor features a lightweight billet compressor wheel with 60mm inducer and 80mm exducer (49 trim) to improve turbo spool-up and handle high wheel speeds and boost pressures. A CNC-machined, black anodized billet aluminum wastegate actuator comes preset, but is adjustable and is capable of higher boost pressures with an appropriate tuner. An optional high-flow turbine outlet also helps lower exhaust gas temperature. This turbo can be installed as a direct bolt-on replacement. All connections to the vehicle are compatible with the OE geometry, resulting in a quick and reliable connection. Additional fueling is not required for improved performance over OE, but maximum gains are achieved from fuel system upgrades, either electronic or mechanical.

RAM TRUCK COILOVER CONVERSION

What It Is:
Front Spring/Shock Upgrade

Why You Want It:
If you own a 2003-2012 2500 or 3500 4×4 Ram truck and want to improve the ride, consider this front coilover upgrade. Compared to the stock spring and shock setup, a coilover system provides a much better ride on or off pavement. In addition, this kit can be adjusted for 3 to 5 inches of lift to allow for the added weight of bigger bumpers, winches and snowplows. Not simply a race-style shock that’s been modified to fit this application, but rather a shock that was designed from the ground up with on- and off-road performance in mind. ICON has tested and tuned the Dodge Ram coilovers to ensure stability and drivability over a wide range of terrains.

TOWING TROUBLE SOLVER

What It Is:
Jet Connex Trailer Wire Harness

Why You Want It:
The Jet Connex trailer connection wire harness is the solution to the nightmare problem of the taillight on your trailer not working due to damage and disconnection of the flimsy wire harness that comes with most trailers. The Jet Connex solves this problem by taking those flimsy wires that hang down between the truck and trailer out of the hitch area completely. Just secure those flimsy wires to the trailer frame and bumper area, and after you attach the trailer to the vehicle, attach the Jet Connex across the hitch area, thus eliminating frayed or cut taillight connections. The Jet Connex is a coiled, jacketed power cable with customized connectors. It comes in two (3- and 6-feet) extended lengths. The jacket is made of a water- and abrasive-resistant composite that can handle the rough treatment and conditions faced in marine and desert environments. Combinations of flat and round connectors are offered to match most vehicle/trailer combinations.
