Hi-Po Hybrid
With 950 reliable hp, your Cummins 5.9L or 6.7L would be almost unstoppable. Luckily, that kind of output is achievable with BD Diesel Performance’s S400 turbo kits. Available for many BorgWarner S400-series turbochargers, the kit consists of a fresh-air intake, a washable air filter, and a velocity stack, along with turbochargers mounted to a wastegate-ready BD Diesel Pulse T4 exhaust manifold. BD also includes all related hardware for quick installation. Kits are available in a variety of outputs starting at 600 hp.

Flexibility Guaranteed
We’ve all seen it: Some dude driving his truck down the highway with his tonneau cover open and his cargo dangerously hanging out. The ATC Truck Covers SXT helps you avoid that problem altogether. Modular in design, the tonneau kit is comprised of four low-profile sections that can be removed individually by a single person, then stored in the included padded vinyl bag for safety. The design allows for on-the-fly customization of the tonneau cover, meaning you get secured cargo when you want it and an open bed space when you need it. Aircraft-grade composite-and-aluminum construction only adds to the SXT’s appeal.

Bulletproof Billet
Almost everyone agrees billet is one of the most durable construction methods out there, plus it looks really cool. For those reasons and more, Bullet Proof Diesel chose to build its newest Power Stroke 6.4L water pump kit from billet. The housing and impeller are hewn from a single piece of metal, meaning far greater reliability than the vulnerable plastic stock unit, and everything bolts right up for an OEM direct fit. The days of getting sidelined by a cracked plastic impeller are long gone.

Three Lifts for the Price of One
Can’t decide how high to take your coil-sprung Ram 2500? ProRyde’s SuperBLOK 3-in-1 Rear Coil Spring Block Kit can help. With rear-lift options of 1 inch, 1.5 inches, or 2 inches, the blocks are made from machined steel with nine interlocking points of contact for maximum durability. Ideal for towing, hauling, and adding clearance, the lift kits are compatible with the company’s front leveling options and give the Ram 2500 a sleek, subtle rake that’s adjustable for the truck’s specific needs.

Lose the Sway, Keep the Size
There’s no reason to leave a fullsize SUV out of the adjustable-sway bar fun, so Hellwig now offers two different rear sway bars for the late, lamented Ford Excursion, available for stock-height or lifted SUVs. With the company’s signature powdercoated steel components and heat-treated chromoly steel, not to mention the three levels of sway adjustment, the durable piece will help keep the Excursion’s rear end firmly planted even when towing and hauling, making it an even better long-haul family tow vehicle.

Ready to Go Pro?
This Rigid Industries Capture LED lightbar is one of the most interesting products we’ve seen in awhile. It looks like a simple, 11-inch lightbar; but look a little closer, and you’ll notice a mount for a GoPro adventure camera, providing it with consistent power supply and charging capabilities. Mounting this lightbar anywhere on your eight-lug will give you a unique perspective from which to record your off-road or performance antics. It’s available with a black or white finish, and both colors come with removable amber light covers for safe night vision.

Skull and Bones
Formerly known as BMF Wheels, SOTA Offroad builds one of this author’s favorite hoops: the S.K.U.L. in Death Metal Black. The S.K.U.L. combines a sinister matte-black finish with machined rim and spoke accents for a look that pops. Available in a variety of eight-lug designs in many different finishes, SOTA’s wheels have a good reputation for quality and style, regardless of what you use your truck for.

Stopping Power
Logic would suggest that if you’ve got more clamping force biting down on your brake discs, then you’re going to stop shorter. Logic would be right, in this case. That’s why Brembo now offers the B-M8, an eight-piston caliper suitable for front braking systems of trucks and SUVs. The massive caliper fills the space behind a large wheel quite nicely, and it gives fullsize trucks and SUVs the same kind of performance engineering one would expect of Brembo, including internal fluid passage and a seamless appearance. With four brake pads per caliper, the B-M8 also provides consistent braking power and better pad wear, with good brake feel as well.

Clean and Tidy
Cleaning brake parts is nasty business: You pull out the aerosol can of brake cleaner, mask off your delicate rubber brake lines, cover your nose and mouth, and hope there’s not too much overspray. But with Permatex Brake Cleaning Wipes, the job is quite a bit simpler. These wipes feature a water-based cleaning solution designed to easily lift oil residue, and the formula helps promote proper brake pad wear-in. They’re available in single-use pouches or a 50-towelette dispenser, and it’s easy to keep them close at hand when doing brake work.
