Brute Jug
FasTrak Performance Products has DOT-approved Brute utility jugs built from Borocene, a material that provides very high impact resistance and more stability in extreme temperatures. The very low porosity allows far less absorption over the life of the jug. The jugs have two extra-stout handles, an extra-deep bottom grip for use with gloves, and every jug is pressure-tested before shipping and available in white, red, blue, or purple.

Heads-Up Display
You might never take your eyes off the road again with TS Performance's new MPD monitor with Heads-Up Display. The MPD monitor is a stand-alone digital monitor that works with any model diesel engine and displays EGT, boost, fuel pressure, and rpm. The MPD works on stock vehicles, with any of TS Performance's modules, or even with any other brand of power module. An optional Heads-Up Display lets you project one of its functions onto your windshield. The MPD can be reset on the fly and is easy to read and mount.

Monster Exhaust
Gale Banks Engineering has introduced its Monster Exhaust for the newly designed '06 325hp Cummins-equipped Dodge Mega Cab. The bolt-on 4-inch constant-diameter after-cat exhaust system features Banks' free-flowing, straight-through polished stainless steel Monster Muffler. The expansion chamber produces an authoritative sound without the annoying mid-range drone and allows the removal of the factory resonator. Backpressure is reduced by 60 percent, lowers EGT, and improves performance. Available in both single and dual kits, these kits are mandrel-bent and accommodate the spare tire, shocks, and brake lines. All Monster Exhaust systems come with Banks' lifetime warranty.

ATV Storage Boxes
Lund International's Deflecta-Shield aluminum front and rear ATV storage boxes now offer more features, more convenience, and they're quieter, too. A new gas-mounted shock replaces the former chain/hinge for better access and less noise. The removal of outward handles also reduces chatter while out on the trails. More weatherstripping was added to the lid's interior for better protection from the elements and more noise reduction. The rugged diamond-plate construction remains the same, as do the drain holes and vents. For more information, contact: Lund International, (260) 562-3406, www.lundinternational.com.

Zinc Anode Kit
Flex-a-lite has developed a new zinc anode kit that is installed in your radiator as a replacement for the drain petcock in radiators that are equipped with a 1/4-inch NPT bushing welded into the tank. Or, it may be installed in any 1/4-inch NPT hole that is available in the cooling system. For years, anodes have been used in heavy duty and marine applications to protect the cooling systems and its many components from damage due to electrolysis or coolant additive failure or breakdown. With so much aluminum and aluminum alloy being used in modern trucks, the effects of electrolysis can lead to disintegration of some parts. The introduction of the zinc anode will protect your cooling system from galvanic action by allowing it to "eat" the zinc rather than your cooling system. For more information, contact: Flex-a-lite, (800) 851-1510, www.flex-a-lite.com.

Turbo Timer
Edge Products is now shipping the long-awaited Juice with Attitude application for the second-generation 24-valve Dodge Ram diesel. Edge engineers spent three years developing this system, which reliably adds as much as 120 more horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. Plus, its built-in Turbo Timer prolongs turbo life by allowing the engine to run for a specified cool-down time or until a predetermined EGT is reached. The Edge Attitude also includes high-idle adjustment, low-boost smoke control, automatic defueling to prevent excessive EGT, turbo boost, transmission slip, and cold-start protection.

Sway Be Gone
Sway bars can be the difference between a fantastic ride and a poor one. Federico Racing has come up with a sway bar for the 2500HD Duramax truck that really makes the truck feel stable. Solid bars, as opposed to the factory hollow ones, are available for front and rear, and we recommend you install both. This is a relatively inexpensive mod, and you will really appreciate the improvement in performance. For more information, contact: Frederico Racing, (619) 501-3521, www.fredericoracing.com
