Yuba Ultralight L6 Rain Anorak – Beyond Clothing
Redefine your overland vehicle’s everyday kit with the highly packable Yuba Ultralight L6 Rain Anorak from Beyond Clothing. Ultra-lightweight three-layer Pertex® construction maintains breathability and ease of movement while delivering complete wind and rain protection and the full array of features you expect from a professional-grade waterproof layer. The self-stowing pouch allows compact storage when not in use, ensuring comprehensive weather defense is as close as your vehicle’s trunk, travel bag, or cargo container.

The Pertex® 3-layer ripstop hardshell is a 7-denier making it abrasion and tear-resistant.

5th Gen 4Runner Lo Pro Front Bumper & High Clearance Additions – C4 Fabrication
This trail-proven bumper from C4 Fabrication is the perfect blend of function and style to fit the avid off-roader or weekend adventurer. The bumper fits right in the lower section of the 5th Gen 4Runner, and the fit is so perfect you would almost think that Toyota designed that section specifically for aftermarket replacement. This bumper offers you functionality while still retaining a lot of the original OEM front-end look. One of the biggest selling points for this bumper over a full-sized bumper is the overall weight you’re saving. The Lo Pro Front bumper is designed to fit a 30-inch single row light bar and to accommodate 10k-12k lb winches. Made with CNC cut and press brake bent from 3/16 inch P&O steel, this bumper is trail-ready and built to last. The Lo Pro Bumper fits 2014 and up 4Runners.
While this bumper doesn’t give you any additional clearance, you can gain more clearance at the front of your 4Runner by adding High Clearance Sides. High clearance sides will give you more room for larger tires and create a better approach angle for large obstacles. They are a direct bolt-on application to the C4 Lo-Pro Winch Bumper and give a more aggressive look to the front of your vehicle.
Prinsu Roof Rack for Polaris RZR XP 1000/900 — CBI
If you’re looking to add ample storage and side of style to your RZR, the Full Prinsu Rack from CBI is a great option. The RZR 1000/900 Full Roof Rack for 4-Seat UTVs is engineered to work with aluminum roofs and without roofs. It doesn’t currently work with plastic roofs.
Its lightweight aluminum structure offers great strength and durability, with a low-profile design that perfectly matches the RZR body style. Multiple crossbars with drop points offer lots of mounting and accessory options, including a wind deflector with a 30-inch light bar cut out. With plenty of versatility, this is a roof rack that can carry almost anything you need on your next trail ride.
