Wheelie Clean

Modern truck wheels have come a long way from their simple forebears, featuring brighter finishes and intricate designs that wouldn’t look out of place on a sports car. Unfortunately, that also makes them a bit more difficult to clean. But Brush Hero can help. Using the standard pressure of a garden hose, Brush Hero spins and to cut through brake dust and grime, while the soft-bristle scrubber prevents damage to the finish. It’s also available with a heavier-duty interchangeable head, perfect for roughing up the mud on your work boots or the gunk on your barbecue grille.

Invisible Sound

If your ’14-’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, incredibly 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.

Stepping Up

AMP Research, the company known for making it a bit easier to climb into lifted trucks, is turning its Powerstep magic to the Ford Transit van. Like the Powerstep Xtreme, the Ford Transit application will come with dual motors for better performance and long-lasting durability. It will also be available in a single 79-inch step for just the passenger-side doors (including the rear doors) or dual steps for both sides of the van. The power-deploying side step automatically extends when one of the side doors opens, making it easier to climb aboard. Then, once everyone’s out of the way and the doors are closed, the step retracts, preserving aerodynamics and ground clearance.

Intercooler Improver

Thanks to its unique design that takes advantage of otherwise wasted space behind the front bumper, Mishimoto’s direct-fit intercooler for the ’11-’14 Ford F-150 equipped with the 3.5L EcoBoost V-6 lowers intake air temperatures by 50 degrees Fahrenheit compared with the factory intercooler. The result is up to 11 hp and 13 lb-ft more to the wheels on a stock tune or 39 hp and 33 lb-ft more on a performance tune. It also gets Mishimoto’s signature lifetime warranty.

Storage from Summit

Now available from Summit Racing, DECKED In-Vehicle Storage Systems can help even the most untidy owners keep track of their trucks’ cargo. With two storage drawers and a variety of accessories, a DECKED system offers lockable, out-of-sight organization, and the high-strength deck can handle all the stuff that’s too big to fit in the drawers (properly secured, of course). With some fishing poles in the boxes and an ATV up top, DECKED could be ideal for a trip to the great outdoors.

Surf’s Up!

Thanks to sturdy construction, the new LongArm from Yakima helps secure long items that wouldn’t otherwise fit in a truck bed. With three load-carrying positions and a rated capacity of 300 pounds, it’s ideal for surfboards, kayaks and canoes, lumber, ladders, and more. It attaches to the truck’s trailer hitch, and height extensions and arm pads are available as well for more cargo flexibility. As expected from Yakima, a durable black powdercoat finish is standard.

Listen to your Mother

Look, it’s not polite to expect your mother to clean up after you. Unless, of course, you’re talking about the Mothers Speed lineup of car-care products. The latest in the line is the Foaming Bug & Tar remover, which sprays on and safely penetrates bugs, tar, tree sap, and other contaminants for easy cleanup. Used as either a spray-and-wipe spot treatment or a pre-wash, Mothers Foaming Bug & Tar Remover is also great for intricate body details, like billet grilles and hard-to-reach areas. It’s safe for glass, chrome, paint, metal, plastic, and even vinyl wraps.

Lose the Leaks

While they might seem inconsequential at first, leaks in a cooling system can quickly escalate into overheating and engine damage. If you’re not up for a total cooling system overhaul, you might be able to stop the leaks before they cause problems using Prestone’s Triple Seal Protection lineup of stop-leak. The three-part system includes engine block, head gasket, and radiator stop-leak, with each product designed for the unique heat and pressure of the specific location. Prestone also says the products will not block or corrode the cooling system, and Triple Seal Protection is safe for all colors of antifreeze.

Hit the Road

Although Nexen Tire has been in the truck and SUV business for awhile now, it’s calling the all-new Roadian MTX the company’s first-ever hardcore off-road tire. Designed for extreme off-roading, the MTX offers three-ply sidewall construction, a patented block design that reduces tire noise on asphalt without sacrificing mud traction, and distinctive dual sidewall designs that provide aggressive sidewall bite and rugged styling. The Roadian MTX also gets rim protector bars on the 20-inch wheel fitments, protecting your chromies from curb rash and rocks.
