Parts That Can Make a Difference
Coiled UpBDS Suspension’s new 6.5-inch coilover upgrade kit helps owners of the ’11-to-’17 Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD turn their already BDS-ized trucks into high-riding kings of the road. Starting from the company’s own smaller lift kits, the 6.5-inch coilover upgrade kit eliminates the factory torsion bar setup in favor of Fox 2.5 Factory Series coilovers for better performance in a variety of conditions. Also included in the upgrade kit are chromoly upper control arms, internally gusseted lower control arms, bolt-in upper coilover mounts, and weld-in support gussets. The Fox units also include remote DSC reservoirs for improved longevity.
Single-Year ServiceMobil 1 Annual Protection is a full-synthetic motor oil that provides guaranteed engine protection for one year or 20,000 miles when combined with the Mobil 1 Extended Performance oil filter. Tested over a 120,000-mile extreme-duty interval, the test vehicles’ engines were dismantled and inspected. In each, the bearings, cylinder heads, and turbochargers were found to be in as-new condition, according to the company. And there’s a green element to the lubricants, since Mobil 1 claims the yearly oil change interval could save millions of gallons of waste oil.
Economical IlluminationBuilt from aircraft-grade aluminum and certified with an IP68 dustproof and waterproof rating, Project LM’s all-new lineup of lights offers LED performance at a discounted price. In addition, Project LM’s lightbars use military-grade breathers that preserve the lights’ performance, even at altitude. With spotlights, floodlights, and curved and straight lightbars available, there’s a Project LM application for your truck or ATV.
Severe Weather ConditionsDickies and Cordura are teaming up to bring hardworking customers a line of durable jackets and pants. With six times the abrasion resistance than other work clothing, the Dickies Pro with Cordura collection gives those who work in severe weather conditions a warm, wind-resistant product that withstands lots of punishment. Our favorite of the lineup is the Bomber Jacket, which features a military-inspired camouflage inner lining, a removable hood, a headphone stabilizer, adjustable cuffs, and reflective accents.
Toolin’ AroundA good set of tools is vital for everyone, whether you’re a master mechanic or a novice DIYer. True to its name, the lineup from OEMTOOLS offers quality at a reasonable price. A GreatNeck company, OEMTOOLS offers a 42 piece 3/8-inch–drive Master Impact Set that includes a variety of metric- and SAE-size sockets, an extension bar, and a universal joint, making under-the-hood and around-the-house jobs a bit easier. The included custom-molded tray keeps the sockets organized and ready for use.
Stability and SimplicityAvailable for the all-new ’17 Ford F-Series Super Duty, Hellwig’s forged front and rear sway bars can help improve handling and stability when the big truck is loaded down. Hellwig designs its sway bars to reduce body roll and lean while cornering, making it safer and more fun to drive. They can be installed in just a few hours using only simple handtools, making installation fun and easy, and Hellwig offers a lifetime warranty on all steel parts.
UnfazedAmerican Force is one of the most trusted names in custom wheels, and its built-to-order lineup gets a bit wider (literally) with the Faze MP8. Forged from T-6061 aluminum and held together with stout ARP stainless steel bolts, one of the newest additions to American Force’s multipiece lineup is also one of its boldest. The snowflake design can be customized to each truck’s exacting design specifications, and it’s available in 24- or 26-inch diameters, with three different widths each.
