Performance-Accessories-Website-2014-1-24-14Chino Valley, AZ -Performance Accessories launched its newly redesigned website that allows visitors to easily find the correct leveling kit, body-lift, or Premium Lift System for their specific vehicle application. The new website navigation tools and menu allow vehicle owners to search for Performance Accessories products by category, or by entering their specific vehicle make, model, year, and application.

“Our newly redesigned website is a great resource for truck, Jeep, or SUV owners who want to lift their vehicles anywhere from 3/8 of an inch to 5.5 inches, but without the need to heavily modify the suspension or drivetrain,” says Steve Rezek, President at Performance Accessories. “More people are realizing Performance Accessories leveling kits, body-lifts, and Premium Lift Systems won’t affect the vehicle’s electronic stability controls or void the factory warranty. So we needed to upgrade our website to handle the additional traffic and make it even easier to find the right product for their application.”

2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Altitude
Houston -
New special-edition ‘Altitude’ models of the 2014 Cherokee, Grand Cherokee and Wrangler were introduced yesterday at the Houston Auto Show. Featuring unique “blacked-out” exteriors with a distinct and aggressive flair, the vehicles arrive in Jeep showrooms this spring – thanks to a positive consumer response from earlier Jeep Altitude models.

Two years ago, Jeep introduced a production-intent concept Grand Cherokee at the Houston Auto Show, and connected with customers to name the model. More than 100,000 entries were submitted by Jeep enthusiasts, with ‘Altitude’ emerging as the winning vehicle name. The brand then created a limited run of Altitude models across the Jeep lineup.

Auburn Hills, Mich.

Weddle-Type-2-VW-Transaxle-1-2-14Maximize traction with Weddle Industries new VW Type 2 transaxle. In a standard “open” differential, torque is divided equally between the wheels. If one wheel slips and spins, only a fraction of the total torque is utilized. The Mini Locker eliminates this problem by delivering power to the wheel with the most traction. This will help you keep moving instead of getting stuck.

How it works. The Type 2 Mini Locker consists of two bi-directional over-running dog clutches. Each clutch has a driving member (the driver) and a driven member (the existing sidegear). Both clutches are rotated by the differential cross shafts to form a fully locking combination when engine torque is applied. The Mini Locker provides differential action when cornering by allowing the rear wheels to rotate at different speeds. Because the outside wheel is “ground driven” faster than the inside wheel, the dog clutch disengages, allowing the outside wheel to rotate freely; power continues to be applied to the slower (inside) wheel. In low traction situations, the Mini Locker will always deliver power to the wheel with the most grip, with up to 100% of the engine’s torque available to either wheel.

The affinity for Jeep gained traction as the first civilian Jeep (“CJ”) vehicles – the Willys-Overland CJ-2A – reached the public in 1945.
