Parts That Can Make a Difference
A Brush With GreatnessIf you’re gonna spend hard-earned cash on a slick set of wheels, don’t let them get caked in brake dust and road grime to the point they’re unrecognizable. Brush Hero can help, providing gentle scrubbing power ideal for polished and painted metal surfaces. Using the standard pressure of a garden hose, Brush Hero spins to cut through brake dust and gunk, and it is available with interchangeable heads for tougher jobs, like scrubbing barbecues or cleaning off work boots.
Take a BiteMickey Thompson is bringing its signature design to the Sidebiter Lock wheel lineup. With a machined lip, cast-in beadlock, and satin dark finish, the Sidebiter Lock is available in nearly two dozen different configurations in sizes ranging from 15 to 20 inches. With a max per-wheel load of up to 3,640 pounds, it’s also a tough wheel with a limited lifetime warranty against structural defects.
The Bottom LineThanks to 3/8-inch–deep channels, the Rugged Ridge All Terrain Floor Liner is substantially better at keeping dirt, mud, and slush away from your carpets. Now available for the ’17-and-up Ford F-Series Super Duty, the liner is injection-molded for a precise fit, with raised contours that keep the muck confined to the easy-to-clean liner and away from floor, transmission tunnel, and footwell upholstery.
Heavy-Haul Sway ControlAs some of the biggest trucks on the commercial market, the Ram 3500, 4500, and 5500 chassis cabs deserve fittingly tough suspension components. That’s why Hellwig Products now offers a heavy-duty forged rear sway bar for the truck, which is only equipped with a front sway bar from the factory. Constructed of 1¼-inch 4140 chromoly steel, the sway bar is also adjustable for various situations, and it installs easily using only basic tools. Hellwig says the bar makes the Ram chassis cab easier and more comfortable to drive, giving plenty of control even when loaded down.
Stopper Cleaner, QuickerOver time, even the best brakes get subjected to oil, dirt, and brake dust buildup, leading to added friction and reduced braking performance. But thanks to 3M’s High Power Brake Cleaner, gearheads can keep their stoppers clean and free from residue. The low-VOC formula works eight times faster than comparable products, according to 3M, making the cleanup process easier: Just spray the brake cleaner onto the drum and let it drip into an approved container, and watch it take months or years of oil and dust buildup with it.
Slimline SubwooferIf your ’14-to-’18 GMC or Chevy pickup is equipped with front bucket seats, put the center console space to work by improving your audio system. JL Audio’s new Stealthbox subwoofer installs invisibly inside the center console, leaving storage space and cupholders totally unaffected. The sub enclosure’s location hides it away from thieving eyes while still providing audiophiles with deep bass reproduction for a full sound experience.
