New BOLT Mounting System Wins SEMA 2015 New Product Award

BOLT J-MOUNT JEEP HI-LIFT JACK MOUNT WINS SEMA
2015 NEW PRODUCT AWARD

MILWAUKEE – The new BOLT (Breakthrough One-Key Lock Technology) J-Mount(tm) 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.

SEMA used a number of important product aspects as judging criteria for the award, including potential, innovativeness, consumer appeal, quality and workmanship, and availability (cost). “We designed the J-Mount and our other Jeep products to offer the simplified, convenient security of BOLT’s one-key lock technology to Jeep owners, on-the-go consumers that really benefit from easy access to protect their vehicle’s accessories, spare tire, under-hood contents, trailers and equipment,” said Erika Garcia, BOLT national sales manager. SEMA attendees can learn more about the J-Mount and all of BOLT’s products at Booth #35133 Upper South Hall. For more information on the complete selection of Jeep lock products, visit BOLTLock.com.

BOLT and other SEMA New Product Award winners will be recognized at the annual SEMA Industry Awards Banquet on the evening of Thursday, November 5.

RAM Power Wagon

America’s Most Off-road Capable Pickup, 2015 Ram Power Wagon Named Four Wheeler ‘Pickup Truck of the Year’

•2015 Ram Power Wagon beats the competition in a series of in-depth on- and off-road tests
•2015 Ram Power Wagon is the most off-road-capable pickup truck with electric-locking front and rear differentials, electronic disconnecting sway bar, Bilstein shocks, 33-inch off-road tires, underbody skid plate protection, 4.10 axle ratio and a custom-built Warn® 12,000-pound winch
•Power Wagon now available in three distinct trim models—Tradesman, SLT and Laramie

March 2, 2015 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – The editors of Four Wheeler have named the Ram Power Wagon “2015 Pickup Truck of the Year.”

 

“Factory-built and engineered, our Power Wagon is, by far, the most capable off-road pickup available in production,” said Bob Hegbloom, President and CEO of Ram Truck Brand — FCA US LLC. “The Four Wheeler magazine staff is loaded with off-road expertise. We’re honored that they have again named the Ram Power Wagon with their Pickup Truck of the Year award.”

To qualify for the competition, a vehicle must have been entirely new or have substantial mechanical revisions from a previous model year. The award winning Ram Power Wagon features a 6.4-liter HEMI with best-in-class 410 horsepower and 428 lb.-ft. of torque. A class-exclusive 5-link rear suspension system was added and the front suspension is uniquely modified with Ram’s “Articulink” to allow additional axle flex and traction.

“The 2015 Ram Power Wagon is simply everything you want a real pickup to be,” said Christian Hazel, Editor of Four Wheeler. “Plenty of power and load-carrying capability for hauling and towing, well-appointed interior comfort and convenience features, great on-road ride and handling, and jaw-dropping capability in virtually any off-road terrain. The Ram Power Wagon didn’t just win Four Wheeler’s 2015 Pickup Truck of the Year, it blew the competition away.”

The 2015 Ram Power Wagon is based on the Ram 2500 Heavy Duty 4×4 Crew Cab, but features a number of off-road-specific engineering enhancements, which give the truck a significant advantage over all production pickups.

Vehicles participating in the annual Four Wheeler Pickup Truck of the Year competition were subjected to a week of rigorous testing in five key areas: Trail Performance, Empirical Data, On-Pavement Performance, Interior, and Exterior. Visit FourWheeler.com to learn more about the 2015 Four Wheeler Pickup Truck of the Year competition.

POWERTRAIN
Compelling numbers tell the best-in-class story of the standard 6.4-liter HEMI 16-valve V-8 engine: 410 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and a peak torque rating of 429 lb.-ft. (582 N•m) at 4,000 rpm. The engine calibration is unique to Power Wagon in order to enhance its off-road maneuverability and finesse. When driving in four-wheel-drive “Low,” the throttle response softens and the idle speed increases by 100 rpm (from 650 to 750 rpm) — providing added control when ascending and descending off-road obstacles at slow speeds.

The 2015 Ram Power Wagon is equipped with Fuel Saver technology, delivering more power yet better fuel efficiency than previous generations. When conditions allow, as in highway cruising, the Fuel Saver system seamlessly shuts down four cylinders to conserve fuel.

The engine also features an active dual-runner-length intake manifold optimized specifically for the Ram Heavy Duty lineup. The result is improved low-end torque without sacrificing high-end power.

The 6.4-liter HEMI is offered with the 66RFE six-speed automatic transmission and connects to a part-time, manual-engagement BorgWarner BW 44-47 transfer case.

Built by American Axle Manufacturing, the axles measure 9.25 inches in the front and 11.5 inches in the rear (increase from 10.5 inches), delivering power via a 4.10:1 ring and pinion ratio. Robust rear axle shafts are upgraded to 38 mm, providing rotating force directly to the 33-inch tire/wheel combination. Both axles include electronic locking differentials driven by electro-magnetic actuators. All Ram Heavy Duty trucks incorporate a segment-exclusive front axle disconnect system to reduce parasitic loss and improve overall efficiency.

Additional axle data:

FRONT REAR
9.25 AAM 11.5 AAM
Front Pinion: 98.3 mm Rear Pinion: 121.3 mm
Front Ring Gear: 235 mm (9.25 inches) Rear Ring Gear: 292 mm (11.5 inches)
Front Axle Shaft Diameter: 35 mm Rear Axle Shaft Diameter: 38 mm

SUSPENSION
The Ram Heavy Duty features a unique suspension system, some of which was specifically engineered for the Power Wagon, including Bilstein shocks at all four corners, control arms, spring rates and more than two inches of lift.

In the front, the entire Ram Heavy Duty line features an advanced three-link front suspension to ensure roll stiffness. The Ram Power Wagon packages a unique-to-model design of the standard three-link suspension system. The Ram Articulink design incorporates high movement joints at the control-arm-to-axle mount, allowing for additional flexibility and axle articulation. Additional suspension flex is achieved via the class-exclusive electronic disconnecting sway bar, which allows the front axle to move more independently of the truck’s frame.

Heavy Duty trucks generally have rear suspension equipped for constant, heavy payloads. This usually leads to a harsher ride when unloaded. All Ram 2500 Heavy Duty trucks, including the Power Wagon, feature an exclusive five-link coil design provides better articulation over obstacles than a leaf spring system. The robust coil springs are more than up to the task of handling heavy payloads. Although the 2015 Ram Power Wagon is loaded with off-road components, owners appreciate payload up to 1,490 pounds and towing capacity up to 10,810 pounds.

The 2015 Ram Power Wagon’s combined axle and suspension package adds to greater suspension articulation, a determining factor when negotiating extreme obstacles. With Smart Bar engaged, the Ram Power Wagon reaches a Ramp Travel Index (RTI – a measurement of a vehicle’s suspension articulation) of 510 (26-inch vertical height).

GROUND CLEARANCE AND PROTECTION
Providing optimal balance between on-road civility and off-road capability are 33-inch tires, which feature a beefy tread pattern to help grab ledges along the trail and deliver optimum traction through sand, mud and snow. Larger tires and a suspension lift contribute to the Power Wagon’s 14.5-inch ground clearance, compared to 12 inches on the Ram 2500 Heavy Duty. The truck’s approach angle is boosted to 34 degrees, the departure angle is increased to 23.5 degrees and the breakover angle is enhanced to 25.5 degrees. This gives the Ram Power Wagon significant clearance for navigating a variety of severe inclines and declines as well as providing up to 30-inches of water-fording capability.

Underneath the Ram Power Wagon are generous underbody protection components. Fore-aft bars bring together the transfer case and fuel tank skid plates, resulting in armor that minimizes underside damage and rock wedging.

Ultimate truck capability is now available in three trim levels: Tradesman, SLT and Laramie. The Ram Power Wagon Tradesman offers off-road enthusiasts all of the Power Wagon’s legendary capability in a value-oriented package. The Power Wagon SLT provides a mix of comfort with off-road components and the Power Wagon Laramie offers more comfort and luxury features. Each of the three Ram Power Wagon models has its own distinctive look.

The Power Wagon nameplate was produced from 1945 through 1980. Early trucks were based on the Weapons Carrier (WC) series of Dodge ¾-ton military-use trucks built during World War II. The Power Wagon went on to become a well-known civilian vehicle and continued the lineage of Dodge four-wheel-drive trucks from the 1930s, proving basic four-wheel-drive design concepts and representing a significant predecessor to the many four-wheel-drive trucks in modern use today. The iconic truck was reintroduced in 2005 and now exists as an independent model under Ram Truck Brand.2015 Ram Power Wagon Crew Cab 4x4

GEARWAGON Trailer For Small Cars

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Let’s Go Aero (LGA), manufacturer of innovative gear transport and outdoor lifestyle products, brings the RV experience to the small car owner with its ultra-lite and versatile GearWagon 125 Camper. A dual-purpose cargo and camping trailer weighing only 560 pounds, the GearWagon can be pulled by any vehicle including those with Class I, 1,000 pound tow ratings.

An economical and convenient alternative to pop-up or tear-drop campers, the GearWagon 125 Camper provides outdoor enthusiasts with 137 cubic feet of cargo carrying capacity for hauling everything from bicycles, motorcycles and ATVs to camping equipment, sporting gear and lawn and garden tools. For the small car traveler, the GearWagon 125 Camper makes comfortable camping possible by providing a mobile habitat that is easily towed by Class I-rated vehicles, with the capacity to conveniently pack and transport all the outdoor living gear needed for camping and road trips. “Well-suited for off-road use, it can carry an ATV or an ATV can pull it. Then, with the ATV removed, GearWagon 125 becomes a bed for sleeping,” said Marty Williams, president, LGA.

Designed to comfortably sleep two with a large storage area below deck, GearWagon 125 offers a combination of lightness, capacity, transformability and toughness. Measuring 93 inches long, 60 inches wide and 51 inches high, it features a durable, twin-wall polyethylene base and an aerodynamic tonneau-cover style lid that keeps cargo dry, secure and out of sight.

Campers can quickly and easily set up for overnight camping using the GearWagon’s expanded tent enclosure, decking panels and leveler kit components. The waterproof, marine-grade fabric tent includes a main body and a vestibule, which expands the traveler’s living and storage space, providing an enclosed entry way over the trailer’s endgate for more gear, family pets, or just sitting comfortably.

To create a platform for positioning a queen size air mattress or to add another level of storage with 500 pounds weight rating, modular, four-panel decking fits along the width of the trailer using the base’s integrated ledge. When not in use, the panels store along the sidewalls of the trailer.

The Solar Vent feature removes condensation accumulation during the night and prevents mold and mildew from occurring. The solar powered ventilator moves 1,000 cubic feet per hour, and will run for up to 48 hours without sunlight.

For leveling and standing when the trailer is off the hitch, the leveler kit consists of two adjustable stabilizer jacks on the rear of the trailer which provide support for sitting on the endgate and standing inside the trailer bed.

Air Lift Kits For RAM 1500

Lansing, Mich. – New load support solutions from towing safety experts Air Lift Company are available for the suspension system on 2009-2015 RAM 1500 half-ton pickup trucks. The LoadLifter 5000 and LoadLifter 5000 ULTIMATE are industry-leading air spring kits designed to improve ride quality, handling and safety when towing and hauling heavy loads.

To provide additional support for the new five-link-coil rear suspension system of the two-wheel and four-wheel drive RAM 1500 models, Air Lift engineered two heavy-duty towing options featuring application-specific brackets and air springs. Air Lift adjustable air spring kits ensure that weight is properly distributed to all four tires to maximize vehicle stability, safety and comfort. Working with the existing suspension, air springs improve braking and steering, eliminate squat and sway and maintain ideal ride height.

According to Chip Rabey, group marketing manager, Air Lift, “A spring placed inside the coils, which is the typical air spring solution for a coil sprung suspension, wouldn’t provide the level of support that can be achieved by using these heavy half-ton kits.”

For heavy-duty or frequent use, Air Lift’s LoadLifter 5000 kit (#57365) features durable, fully-adjustable air springs, which work with the existing suspension to provide up to 5,000 pounds of leveling capacity. For even more ride support, and to withstand the rigors of commercial duty use, Air Lift’s LoadLifter 5000 ULTIMATE kit (#88365) provides all the benefits of the LoadLifter 5000 with the addition of an exclusive shock-absorbing internal jounce bumper to protect vehicles with heavy loads and eliminate jarring on rough roads. Virtually maintenance-free, LoadLifter 5000 ULTIMATE is adjustable for a safe, comfortable ride, loaded or unloaded. Both kits, which are currently available for pre-order, are easy to install and are backed by Air Lift’s exclusive lifetime warranty.

“Our company is dedicated to providing towing safety, comfort and convenience for a wide variety of trucks, and these kits will provide those important benefits to 2009-2015 RAM 1500 owners,” said Kevin Mehigh, president, Air Lift.

For convenient air spring inflation and deflation from inside or outside the vehicle, Air Lift offers a variety of wireless and wired on-board air compressor systems. Air Lift air springs and related products can be purchased at most truck accessory retailers and online outlets.
