MILWAUKEE – The new BOLT (Breakthrough One-Key Lock Technology) J-Mount Jeep hi-lift jack bracket mounting system was named a 2015 SEMA (Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association) New Product Award winner in the Van/Pickup/Sport Utility category. With 16 different award categories, this popular annual competition recognizes outstanding achievements in the development of products being introduced to the specialty automotive aftermarket at the SEMA Show.
BOLT’s uniquely-designed Jeep accessory, the J-Mount, allows Jeep TJ and JK off-road enthusiasts to securely attach their hi-lift jack to the side of their vehicle for easy, vertical access, and features the one-key convenience of BOLT lock technology. This patented innovation permanently programs the lock to the Jeep owner’s vehicle ignition key, eliminating the need for extra keys. Once the ignition key is inserted into the lock cylinder, spring-loaded plate tumblers move up and down and the first time the key is rotated, the cylinder is uniquely coded to that key. An auto-return spring locks automatically when the key is removed.

Las Vegas, NV – For 2016, WARN Industries introduced a bumper crop of WARN new products at SEMA last week. Led by the winch-ready WARN Ascent Bumpers for Ford, Chevy and Dodge full size trucks, the new product lineup includes everything from the 12,000 pound ZEON 12-S Platinum Winch spooled with WARN Spydura Pro to an appealing lineup of Epic Winch Accessories.
WARN Ascent Bumpers
The WARN Ascent Bumper gives truck owners a low-profile aftermarket bumper option that not only blends fit and function, but facilitates easier bumper and winch installation. The Ascent™ Bumper was designed to complement the look of popular, 2015 year model full-size trucks from Ford (F150 and Super Duty), Dodge (Ram 1500-3500), or Chevy (Silverado 1500-3500). These bumpers come fully winch ready, with a winch plate that accepts most WARN mid-frame winches up to 12,000 lb. capacity (including WARN ZEON Platinum, ZEON, M8000, xp, cti and others). Quick access cutouts make it easy to mount winches even after the bumper is in place.
While the Ascent Bumper was designed to look great, it’s also extremely functional. When it’s time for work or play, truck enthusiasts will appreciate the built in high-performance features, such as welded recovery points right up front, durable textured black powder coat finish and a low-profile design that easily accommodates oversize tires and enhances approach angles for optimized off-road performance. Bumpers include light bezels and knock outs for mounting auxiliary off-road lights (lights sold separately).
WARN ZEON 12-S Platinum and ZEON 12-S Winches
Now the world’s most technologically advanced winch, the ZEON Platinum, and its popular cousin, the ZEON Winch, come in 12,000 pound capacity versions spooled with extra-strong Spydura Pro synthetic rope. Both the new ZEON 12-S Platinum and the ZEON 12-S come with 80’ of 3/8” Spydura Pro, a synthetic rope formerly reserved for intense industrial uses. This style of rope delivers the strength to exceed the 12,000 lb. capacity rating due to being heat treated under pressure, which adds strength without more bulk. Already packed with performance features, the ZEON 12-S Platinum is known for 20% faster lines speed, added durability and an Advanced Remote Control. These new members of the WARN ZEON winch family have aluminum hawse fairleads.
Since WARN Winches have long been the performance leader, it’s only logical that WARN Winch Accessories should also lead. Introducing WARN Epic™ Accessories, our new high performance accessory lineup. Designed to tie in with the look of WARN ZEON Winches, each top-of-the-line Epic accessory is carefully crafted to hold up under difficult winching situations. A multi-layered E-coat protects forged steel components from both corrosion and abrasion. Accessories include the Epic Winch Hook, Epic Shackle, Epic Snatch Block, and Epic Tree-trunk Protector
Gen II Trans4mer for Ford F150
How can WARN Industries improve on the much-lauded Gen II Trans4mer®, our most popular bumper/grille guard mounting system? By pairing it with the world’s most popular truck, the Ford F150. Now 2015 Ford F150 owners can discover the versatility of these Gen II Trans4mers, from the durable winch tray that attaches directly to the frame, to the integrated grille guard and light bar.

Although we had a chance to test-drive the new diesel-powered Colorado recently at a press launch in Solvang, California, what we didn’t know then is exactly what the fuel economy would be, as the EPA testing wasn’t completed at the time. Today, the wait is over, as Chevrolet can lay claim to having the most fuel-efficient truck in the U.S. with its 31 mpg highway fuel economy for the two-wheel-drive version of the diesel Colorado.
