#1 | PERFORMANCE UPGRADE
Looking for the best all around performance upgrade for Your Jeep Wrangler? Look no further. Prodigy Performance Turbo kit is designed to eliminate all of those everyday situations Jeep owners face when it comes to lack of power. Many people don’t get the chance to truly enjoy driving their Jeep as a daily driver. The struggle is only worsened after you add hundreds of pounds from aftermarket parts. Your Jeep may become sluggish, unresponsive, or simply not an enjoyable driving experience.
When it comes to power, performance, and reliability we stand in a league of our own. There are others who claim to be superior but simply lack when it comes to real world results. Many claims from our competition state that there are “noticeable gains” do you really want to invest in a product that may or may not even be able to produce noticeable gains in power? With our kit we can assure you the power WILL be felt. You can expect 90%-120% increase in both horsepower and torque. Its like having two Jeeps in one! Make the right informed decision the first time around. Time and time again we see Jeep owners wasting their money on other performance adders just to Ripp them off and install ours.
#2 | GEARS
Time and time again we see people increasing their tire size, adding a lift kit but NOT re-gearing! The most important parts of your vehicle are the parts you never see. Most vehicles are already ‘under-geared’ so the vehicle runs at lower RPM’s on the freeway. Thus, increasing the manufacturer mpg. Even the slightest of increased tire size will alter the RPM at which your Jeep was initially designed to shift gears. In return this leads to a multitude of issues such as; wearing out your transmission and drive train pre-maturely, decreased gas efficiency, and power loss just to name a few. A well educated re gear will result in power, longevity, and efficiency for your Jeep Wrangler!

#3 | TUNER
DIABLOSPORT | INTUNE I3
Tuners are a great way to get your Jeep driving and performing the way you want it. By default your Jeep is set to the manufacture factory settings. This leads room for potentially more power or increased miles per gallon, the two go hand and hand. They’re not going to add any sort of crazy power but they’re are great for those who like to be in control of the small details. Going on a long trip and don’t need substantial power, set your tuner to economy mode and reap the benefits of increased miles per gallon. Alternatively, if you simply want some more pep or power than you can program these devices to push your Jeep a bit harder, typically at a cost of decreased mpg. All in all, tuners are great for anyone who wants to conservatively make the most out of their Jeep. The changes are somewhat subtle but for those who can dial in your perfect setting preference will be the most happy with this product.
#4 | HOOD
JEEP WRANGLER RUBICON | 10TH ANNIVERSARY HOOD
Jeep Wrangler hoods are just as unique as their owners themselves. Some allow for venting which may cool the engine a bit faster allowing for additional airflow and cooling advantages. While others provide aesthetic upgrades based of ones preference. Whichever route you go whether you keep it stock or upgrade keep in mind the construction of your hood in regards to materials used. Also ensure proper sizing for your specific year Jeep to make sure you are guaranteed a perfect fit.

This upgrade features a fierce-looking scoop with a unique bezel. In addition, by default the Rubicon 10th Anniversary hood comes ready to paint to ensure an exact match of your unique Jeep Wrangler paint color.
#5 | SIDE STEPS
RRC | SIDE ARMOR GUARDS
Side steps, also know as wrangler armor. When driving on trails, big rocks, and other obstacles there is a high chance for damage to your Jeep Wrangler. These side steps provide not only a convenient step to assist yourself and passengers when entering and exiting your Jeep. But also, adds a necessary level of protection when using your Jeep for more rigorous off-roading adventures. Dings, scratches, and dents are almost inevitable when off-roading in your Wrangler.

#6 | LED LIGHT BAR / CUBE
RIGID INDUSTRIES | LIGHT CUBE
Rigid Industries is by far the leader when it comes to offload LED lighting. The D series are their bread and butter in our opinion. They are equipped with rugged housing and heavy duty heat sinks, not to mention a custom molded seal. These lights are the ultimate compact lighting package, they can virtually fit anywhere you need them to. Not only are they constructed to last they also have the most optimal performance.

#7 | HOOD STRUTS
RUGGED RIDGE | HOOD STRUTS
Must have for all Jeep Wrangler owners. This product is such a simple yet convenient Jeep accessory, this kit eliminates the need for the factory hood prop rod. No more need for propping up the hood with a space invasive bar. Simply lift the hood and watch as the opening is gently automated. Great for anyone who spends time under the hood of their Jeep. This is especially helpful for those with a lifted Jeep.
#8 | GRAB HANDLES
RUGGED RIDGE | NEOPRENE DOOR AND GRAB HANDLES
There are many variations on grab handles and also grab rails. The main differences are going to be overall construction as well as design. Some feature a wrap around design which will securely and simply install on your Jeeps frame. These handles will come in a variety of constructions such as paracord construction which seems to be a popular option nowadays. Our personal preference would be a grab handle constructed out of nylon webbing for sturdiness and durability and finished with rubberized handle for comfort. While on the other hand, there is another option being metal grab rails. These grab rails are typically mounted closer to the windshield so they are not in the way of passengers heads, if mounted in a poor location be prepared to have some unhappy passengers as well a few bumps yourself!
Thinking about taking your Jeep off-road? Or maybe you already have and realized that you might need something to hold on to. Be sure to pick up yourself a pair of grab handles! This specific model is one of the most well constructed on the market. Made out of high quality neoprene these handles will endure whatever dirty adventures you can throw at them. They can support massive amounts of weight so don’t be afraid to hold on for dear life! These guys can definitely withstand the abuse.
#9 | STEEL BUMPERS
RUBICON 10TH | ANNIVERSARY BUMPERS
I have a bumper! Why would i need a shiny new metal one, aside from the high quality complete look it gives my Jeep Wrangler? Personally, I equip all my Jeeps with steel bumpers they’re much more aesthetically pleasing and serve great purpose beyond just looks! A standard Wrangler bumper may not be able to withstand the immense amounts of force that the Jeep is required to endure when being towed out of a muddy situation. A winch must have a sturdy base to latch onto with a winch hook. Without this rugged steel construction your Wranglers stock bumper may be compromised. There are plenty of options out there find which one suits you best. In addition the sturdier design will protect your Wrangler much better when coming into contact with rocks, obstructions, and other Jeeps!
Here is a great example of a steel bumper that we highly recommend. The 10th anniversary lineup doesn’t fall short of amazing, the quality of these parts are made up to the manufactures specs. Resulting in an almost seamless pairing with the original Jeep Wrangler body. Not only does it exceed quality and appearance. There is no need to worry about parts not lining up properly or inconsistent constructicon 10th Anniversary not disappoint. Fully equipped with a complete steel construction these bumpers also include; a textured black finish which is E-coated and powder coated.
#10 | SOFT TOPS
MONTANA TOP | SOFT TOP
Jeep Wrangler soft tops are indeed a necessity. The true versatility a Jeep has to offer is incomparable. Hard top, soft top, no top. All are interchangeable and usually done depending on the season and or mood. This particular soft-top sports the eye catching fast back design which is not very common for most soft tops. This unique versatile top fits snuggly over the factory roll bar and works with your factory door surrounds and tailgate bar, delivering a uniform air-tight fitment with an aerodynamic style all its own.
#11 | PROTECTION PANELS
JEEP WRANGLER | MAGNETIC PROTECTION PANEL KIT
There is many different types of body armor available for Jeep Wranglers. Such as thick cut steel rock guards, bumpers, and step rails. One of our personal favorites is the magnetic body armor. These panels magnetically adhere directly to the sides of your Wrangler. This easily removable 9 piece kit was designed to provide full coverage for the body of your Jeep. This is especially useful for protecting your Jeeps crisp paint job from tree limbs, gravel, and other inevitable encounters.
