Brute Force
Edelbrock is expanding its E-Force supercharger system to the ’07-’13 Chevrolet and GMC HD trucks, giving late-model eight-lug owners one more way to give their trucks some serious horsepower. An Eaton Gen VI 2300 supercharger provides up to 424 rear-wheel horses on the Silverado and Sierra’s 6.0L V-8 engine, and the rest of the system is optimized for durability and efficiency in all driving situations. Seductive supercharger whine is icing on the cake.

Riding the Ridge
With the new Ridge Grappler light-truck tire, Nitto is entering the hot “rugged-terrain” segment that splits the difference between grippy-but-noisy mud tires and sometimes-inadequate all-terrains. Reinforced tread block foundations provide firm, controlled grip, but the tread’s pattern minimizes highway thrum. With sizes up to 37 inches and available F load ratings, there’s a Ridge Grappler for almost any HD truck.

Well-Adjusted
Sometimes, all you need is an extra inch or two of clearance to fit a motorcycle, some lumber, or a piece of furniture into the bed of a truck. That’s why the ratcheting Tailgate Adjuster is a great fit for pickup owners. Replacing the normal tailgate cable, the Tailgate Adjuster can be fixed in any position, providing a bit more space and cargo security. It’s easy to use, and it installs on most late-model pickups without requiring any drilling.

Orange You Glad?
That corny joke aside, orange hand cleaner is so popular for a good reason: It’s very effective. For really nasty jobs though, Permatex offers its Fast Orange line in a new Xtreme formulation. Grease, grime, and soot are no match for the Fast Orange Xtreme’s proprietary MicroGel technology and pumice-stone scrubbers. Plus, it’s loaded with aloe, vitamin E, and all that other moisturizing stuff, keeping your hands and skin healthy while removing oil odors and residue.

Bolted Down
Broken or stripped exhaust manifold fasteners can happen even on stock trucks. Merchant Automotive can help fix or prevent the problem with the Exhaust Manifold to Cylinder Head Bolt Kit. By using tough ARP bolts and hardware, the kit helps eliminate any power-robbing (and emissions-voiding) exhaust manifold leaks on Duramax engines from ’01 to ’10. The kit installs on both sides of the engine easily without any modifications.

Fresh Air
By swapping out inferior materials for mandrel-bent aluminum and silicone, Sinister Diesel says its Ford 6.4L Power Stroke cold-air intake provides an increase in performance over other products. The aluminum tubing provides better thermal insulation and heat dissipation, while silicone couplers add longevity over comparable rubber units. Sinister’s new cold-air intake is 50-state legal, as are the kits for the Ford 7.3L and 6.0L Power Stroke.

Battery of Trials
Extended idle times, long periods of storage, and frequent start-stop cycles can all take their toll on your 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.

Syn of the Times Two different finishes, three different sizes, and a variety of fitments make the Pro Comp Series 44 Syndrome wheel a great choice for most late-model pickups and SUVs. The 12-spoke design looks fresh and modern with either satin black or matte graphite paint, and a simulated beadlock with stainless steel bolts announce your truck’s off-road chops to the world. TPMS compatibility and a two-year finish and lifetime structural warranty make the Syndrome a decent option for any modern eight-lug.

Steering Committee
Some 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.
