New products are always exciting! We have had a great response to the latest products that we introduced at SEMA, and now all of these new products are in production and ready to ship!
What's new for this year? We expanded our line of direct-fit Flex-a-fit® aluminum radiators and electric fan combinations to cover some very popular vehicles. One that we're very excited to offer fits the '87-'01 Jeep Cherokee (XJ). People have asked us for a cooling solution for this application at nearly every off-road and 4x4 show we've attended in the recent past, and we heard them! Continue reading

If you own a Flex-a-Fit® radiator, mounting a transmission or power-steering cooler to it is a breeze with Flex-a-lite radiator bracket sets. These kits include brackets and mounting hardware that use the patented "T" channel side tank design as the mounting location. This lets you easily move the brackets up and down, as well as eliminating the need for you to fabricate brackets or drill holes in your vehicle. Continue reading

If you own a 2007-2012 Jeep Wrangler (JK), you already know how cool this vehicle is. But if it has an automatic transmission, it might turn out to be a hot vehicle. In fact, last year, 88,000 of them were recalled for potential automatic transmission overheating. The fix at the dealership is to install a trans temp warning light.
