How do you affix a flag to your truck in an OHV area that requires them? We’ve seen and tried it all—duct tape, closing the whip in the tailgate or door, or some permanent hard mounts that get hard to use when old. These StickyWhips suction cups work with 1/4-inch, 5/16-inch, or even 1/2-inch flag whips (depending what cup set) and stick to any clean surface on your vehicle. We ran around an entire weekend without either suction cup coming loose even once. Without a doubt, this will be the only way we secure our flag whips from now on.
If you don’t have some of this in your glovebox, then you’re doing yourself a disservice. In fact, this is one you might even want to share. It’s better than electrical tape on wires, can fix a burst radiator hose when you’re stranded in the middle of nowhere, and can even temporarily fix fuel lines and resist other harsh chemicals. Rescue Tape is made from silicone and actually isn’t sticky to the touch. It’s very flexible and once looped over itself sticks almost instantly in place with a chemical bond that has a 950-psi tensile strength! It even works on surfaces that are covered in oil and dirt.
Give yourself the gift of light! LED light, that is. If you’re thinking of upgrading your headlights for better performance, we’d suggest skipping straight over the HID retrofits and getting a complete LED replacement housing. The LEDs and housing are matched for optimum light output and you’ll get the most effective light pattern without a ton of light bleed (which ticks off oncoming drivers). JW Speaker has these high/low-beam 8900 models that fit in place of the old 5x7 rectangular headlights (old fullsize Jeeps, XJ, etc). The install was as easy as changing headlights, and the difference in LED light performance (over halogen bulbs) is impressive. On top of that, the service life and vibration resistance of an LED light is unrivaled.
Portable Nitrogen Tank
We wouldn’t use this to put nitrogen in your tires, but this N2 Inflator Kit from Power Tank is perfect for filling up shocks and bumpstops on your truck at home or out in the dirt. It’s portable, refillable (using a larger nitrogen tank), and has an inflator with a readout that goes up to 400 psi. If you’re into off-roading and running remote reservoir shocks, it’s a staple that you wouldn’t want to go without. The plastic suitcase comes with all the tools and adapters you’ll need to fill the nitrogen tank and subsequently fill the shocks.
