To meet the demands of the diesel dragsters, sled pullers and four-wheelers alike, ARB is offering an impressively strong new model in its Performance Air Locker Series. Designed for the 2000-06 GM 2500/3500 models and the 2003 and newer 2500/3500 Dodge Ram, this new 52 pound behemoth is the first of a new breed of heavy torque handling Air Locking differentials.

ARB’s patented 2-piece case design is manufactured from heavy cross sectioned nodular iron castings for virtually unbreakable strength and has been designed so that the side gears can be optionally upgraded to 35, 37 and 40 spline shafts. These higher splined side gears will be available in spring 2010.

The millions of games in the world drooling over the most anticipated video game launch of the year with Call of Duty: Black Ops have one more thing to get excited about. Jeep recently announced it has been named exclusive automotive partner by Activision Publishing for Call of Duty: Black Ops, which will be released on November 9.

In conjunction with the partnership between Jeep and Activision, Jeep will be producing a limited-edition 2011 Jeep Wrangler Call of Duty: Black Ops Edition, which will be available next month to coincide with the launch of the game. The Jeep Wrangler will be available at a U.S. manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $30,625 for the two-door model and $33,500 for the four-door (Jeep Wrangler Unlimited) model, and Jeep notes that both prices include $750 destination.
