Cool Hand Luke
The 6.0L V-8 found in the ’14-to-’16 Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD leaves little to be desired, with smooth power and a great sound from the tailpipe. Still, adding a dose of durability is an easy install away with the Volant Closed Box Air Intake. The high-flow air filter and Volant air duct help increase airflow for maximum throttle response and power, while an optional pre-filter sock helps keep mud, fine dust, and water out of the intake. Silicone connectors and stainless steel clamps provide a measure of durability as well.

It Don’t Mean a Thing If It Ain’t Got That Swing
The list of available in-bed storage solutions for the new Nissan Titan XD grows by one with the UnderCover Truck Bed Covers SwingCase. Although it’s not compatible with Titan Box, it adds extra versatility by swinging away from the bedsides for easier access. It’s also easily removable for when you need to haul large loads and, like Titan Box, it’s lockable, weatherproof, and easily hidden under a bedcover. It can be installed on one or both sides of your Titan’s bed.

Crystal Clear
The lighter the body is, the more weight your truck will be able to carry. That’s the idea behind the Crysteel Aluminum Landscape Body dump bed. Manufactured from heavy-duty aluminum, the new body offers 13 percent more payload capacity than comparable steel units. It’s a great match for hauling mulch, gravel, and other landscaping material, and a standard Lo-Boy hoist makes unloading a cinch. It also brings better fuel economy and performance along for the ride.

Battery of Trials
Extended idle times, long periods of storage, and frequent start-stop cycles can all take their toll on your work truck’s battery. The AutoMeter BEX battery extender can help, though, by providing energy-efficient charging, drain protection, and battery conditioning. Two different power levels make it a good fit for motorcycles, RVs, power toys, and other vehicles.

Break Into a Sprint
Here at Work Truck Review, we love the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. And we’d love it even more if it were lifted for off-road tasks and weekend playtime duties. Luckily, Van Compass can deliver. Its 2.0-inch suspension lift system provides clearance for up to a 33-inch tire, while retaining stock suspension geometry and payload ratings. Made in the U.S., the kit is constructed of high-quality materials and comes powdercoated for corrosion resistance and added style.

Rose-Colored Glasses
Miller Electric has a new welding helmet, offering outdoor enthusiasts an option, particularly if they like feeling pretty in pink. The Digital Elite helmet in question features Realtree AP Pink Camo with a matte finish, and the 9-inch-square viewing area and four operating modes add function to the helmet’s flashy form. The modes are easily selectable for a variety of welding tasks and protection levels.

Diamond in the Rough
A.R.E.’s Diamond Commercial Unit might be a bit more attractive to contractors and businessmen thanks to its newly available LED lighting solutions. Interior dome lights turn the DCU into a sheltered, enclosed workspace, while shelving lights and LED ropes give a clear picture of what cargo is stocked. Rigid Industries work lights can also be installed on the exterior, making dusk work even easier. The LEDs should last four times longer than comparable incandescent bulbs as well.

Steering Committee
Some work trucks put in long, hard miles on city streets, and that kind of severe service can take its toll on a power steering system. After all, how many times have you heard that distinctive screech and found a well-worn single-cab longbed making the noise? Royal Purple’s Max EZ power steering fluid and conditioner is formulated for just such situations, bringing the benefits of synthetic oil to resist the heat damage that stems from severe service.

Glovebox Must-Have
There is no such thing as being too prepared in an emergency situation or even for a casual weekend camping trip. Secur Products’ SP-4004 Emergency Flashlight & Powerbank 5000 is a 7.4-ounce, waterproof, fireproof, life (and cell phone) saver with its 220-lumen LED flashlight, 5,200-mAh lithium-ion battery, window breaker, and seatbelt cutter. There might not be a more perfect gift for every vehicle’s glovebox.
