Starting Grid
Bold styling is a hallmark of Grid Off-Road Wheels. The company’s lineup includes this hoop, the GD1. It’s available in a variety of colors, including this one’s matte-black finish and directional carbon-fiber inserts. If the GD1 isn’t quite the right wheel for your truck, Grid also offers a variety of cast and forged wheels in sizes up to 26 inches. Some feature styling appropriate for an off-road machine, while others have wild designs that wouldn’t look out of place on a Lamborghini.

That Wheel is Poison…
One of the most venomous snakes in the world is the African black mamba, which strikes us as a fitting namesake for this sinister wheel, the König Mamba M19. Its six-D design looks appropriately rugged for an off-road wheel, and it’s available in 18x9 and 20x9 applications, painted either menacing Matte Black or slick Full Bronze. Sturdy construction and an easy-to-maintain finish will keep these wheels looking good for a long time.

Fadeaway
With a load rating of up to 3,650 pounds, the LRG 112 Fade provides lots of strength in a slick, six-spoke package. With subtle milled accents in the spokes’ windows, the 112 Fade also has a really cool, modern design that complements just about any eight-lug truck. LRG’s two-year finish warranty and lifetime structural warranty prove the company stands behind its products, and the Fade is available in a variety of eight-lug fitments.

Syn of the Times
Two different finishes, three different sizes, and a variety of fitments make the Pro Comp Series 44 Syndrome wheel a great choice for most late-model pickups and SUVs. The 12-spoke design looks fresh and modern with either satin black or matte graphite paint, and a simulated beadlock with stainless steel bolts announce your truck’s off-road chops to the world. TPMS compatibility and a two-year finish and lifetime structural warranty make the Syndrome a decent option for any modern eight-lug.

Like all American Force wheels, the 28-inch dualie wheel is forged and made to each customer’s tech specs and colors, making the owner a design partner for his or her new wheels. Customizability and size aside, American Force dualie wheels are already some of the coolest on the market.

Baja Ready 22s
Anyone who knows tires knows the name Mickey Thompson. The company’s built a legacy on high-performance tires, including the popular Baja ATZP3. This all-terrain tire is specially designed with a three-ply PowerPly sidewall, offering a smooth ride on the street as well as great traction off-road. The big news is the addition of two new sizes: 35x13.50R22LT and 37x13.50R22LT. That’s right—22s! Now you can have your beefy tire and big wheel, too, certifying that bigger is better.

Iron Will
If you’ve got skidplates and brushguards on your Ram, you might think you’re set for the savanna. However, there’s one piece of crucial protection missing. Luckily, AEV’s got you covered, literally, with the Ram Front Differential Cover, designed specifically for ’14-and-newer Ram 2500/3500 trucks. The high-strength iron cover is a heavy-duty unit designed to prevent off-road damage, and it’s got an oversized fill hole and vehicle-specific fluid level verification port for added convenience. The fill hole also makes inspecting your diff’s gears and using a dial indicator easier, as well.

Cooling Off
Mandrel-bent aluminum tubing, silicone connections, and an available powdercoated finish set the Sinister Diesel 7.3L Power Stroke cold-air intake apart from lesser products. The aluminum construction helps insulate the incoming air from the heat of the engine bay, and using silicone instead of rubber gives the intake more durability. Sinister builds each intake at its own facility in Sacramento, California, and the intake is easy to install and expected to be 50-state compliant.

Amped Up and RD to Go!
Great in-cabin audio requires several different ingredients, but that doesn’t mean the process needs to be complicated. The JL Audio RD400/4 four-channel amplifier helps simplify building a strong audio system with an LED clipping indicator, which helps installers easily establish the correct signal sensitivity setting. Amplifier controls are hidden under a removable cover, providing a sleeker appearance and preventing inadvertent control adjustment.
