A New Exhaust for a New F-150

Huntsville, ON (Aug 20, 2009) : MBRP has matched Ford's re-design of its top selling F-150, innovation for innovation. Available in your choice of single side, dual split side and dual split rear these performance exhaust systems perform, look and sound like no other.

At the heart of these new kits is MBRP’s new chambered muffler. This muffler produces a civilized rumble at idle and aggressive growl when you put the pedal down. Equally important, it is able to rapidly and efficiently move hot exhaust gases to ensure that your engine is operating as cool and clean as possible.

MBRP was able to utilize state-of-the-art technology in developing its systems for the new F-150. Central to this development process was MBRP’s Mustang 1100 AWD dynamometer which allows precise prototype refinement simulating a wide variety of load conditions in both 2X4 and 4X4. By testing and retesting a multitude of prototypes our R&D team was able to ensure that every ounce of raw horsepower and torque is converted into performance.

Available in three material grades, MBRP has a system priced for every pocketbook. The top of the line Pro Series is crafted from T304 stainless steel. XP Series is constructed using T409 stainless steel. Both stainless products are backed by MBRP’s Lifetime warranty. Also available is MBRP’s Installer Series built from aluminized steel, value priced and backed by a three year warranty. Regardless of the grade selected every system is built to the same exacting specifications to MBRP's "fits right the first time" quality. And regardless of grade every kit comes complete with T304 mirror polished stainless steel tips.

2009 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited: More Doors, More Fun

Auburn Hills, Mich., Sep 1, 2008  -  The 2009 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited remains the only four-door convertible on the market. With room for five adult passengers, it features the most cargo space ever offered in a Wrangler, plus class-leading off-road capability and everyday practicality.

The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has won over customers who always wanted a Jeep Wrangler, but also needed more space and versatility. By adding 20.6 inches to the standard Jeep Wrangler’s 95.4-inch wheelbase, the 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited’s wheelbase equals 116 inches, which allows for a larger rear seat and significantly more occupant and cargo room.

Unlike the four-wheel-drive-only configuration of the standard Jeep Wrangler, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited also is available in two-wheel drive. All Jeep Wrangler Unlimited models use the same tough body-on-frame construction, full-framed or half doors, exposed hinges, fold-down windshield and innovative removable convertible tops as their Wrangler siblings.

In addition, 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited models add refinement to the mix with standard Hill Start Assist (HSA) that prevents rollback on a graded surfaces. Trailer Sway Control (TSC) also is available to monitor vehicle movement relative to the intended path and activates the Electronic Stability Program (ESP) if the trailer begins to sway outside set parameters.

ENGINEERING

While its legendary off-road capability is a given, the 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited also boasts another feature that appeals to a growing number of customers: a spacious interior that takes comfort and convenience to new lengths.

Interior space in the 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited equals 102.9 cu. ft., providing room for five adult passengers and delivering more cargo storage and seating configurations than any previous Wrangler.

Capability has always been the core attribute of the Jeep Wrangler, starting with the basics. While improving its legendary 4x4 Jeep capability, the 2009 Jeep Wrangler benefits from a frame that is 100 percent stiffer than its predecessor and a body structure that is 50 percent stiffer.

Suspension is a refined five-link coil setup with tuned shock absorbers. This setup works with a Dana 30 front axle and next-generation heavy-duty Dana 44 rear axle. The 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon model uses front and rear Dana 44 axles. The 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon model also offers an electronic-disconnecting front stabilizer bar, called the Active Sway Bar System, which delivers additional wheel travel for challenging terrain.

With high ground clearance combined with short front and rear overhangs, the 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is able to conquer incredibly challenging off-road obstacles, especially severe inclines. Off-road aficionados recognize the key numbers: for the Rubicon model, an approach angle of 44.4 degrees, breakover angle of 20.8 degrees and departure angle of 40.5 degrees. Underbody protection is provided by three skid plates – protecting the fuel tank, transfer case and automatic transmission oil pan.

The powerplant for the 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is a 3.8-liter V-6 engine producing 202 horsepower (151 kW) and 237 lb.-ft. (321 N•m) of torque, backed by a standard six-speed manual gearbox (not available on Wrangler Unlimited two-wheel-drive models) or an available four-speed automatic transmission.

2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited X and Sahara models are equipped with the second-generation Command-Trac® NV241 part-time, two-speed transfer case with a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio. An optional Trac-Lok® limited-slip rear differential provides extra torque and grip during slippery, low-traction situations, such as driving over sand, gravel, snow or ice.

The 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon model is equipped with an Off-Road Rock-Trac® NV241 two-speed transfer case with a 4.0:1 low-range gear ratio, as well as electric front- and rear-axle lockers, an electronic sway bar disconnect and 32-inch BF Goodrich off-road tires.

On-road ride balance in the 2009 Jeep Wrangler lineup is refined, with minimal body lean when cornering and braking. Suspension geometry provides precise ride-and-handling characteristics, while lower suspension spring rates provide a softer, more comfortable on-road ride. An Electronic Stability Program (ESP), which aids the driver in maintaining vehicle directional stability in severe driving maneuvers on any type of surface, is standard on the 2009 Jeep Wrangler. The ESP system features three modes – “full on,” “full off” and “partial on.”
