Top 10 Best New Truck Parts and Products at SEMA 2019 Day 3 #MTSEMA19

Day Three of the Show

Aftermarket manufactures put a huge amount of resources into the development of parts and products to fit pickup trucks. This is very evident at the annual Specialty Equipment Market Association show at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, with all the vehicles and items on display. So, we spent day three of the show wandering the aisles and the New Products Showcase tracking down the Top 10 Best New Truck Parts and Products at SEMA 2019.


Photo 2/11   |   Eaton Performance's new QuietTec ring and pinion gear sets are manufactured with industry-leading gear cutting technology that maximizes tooth contact while reducing the tooth-to-tooth contact pressure. This reduction in pressure delivers improved strength, durability, and heat reduction. QuietTec gears' extremely consistent tooth mesh-and-gear contact pattern makes it easier to achieve a proper mesh, reducing installation time.
Photo 3/11   |   The Duramax L5P Deep-Capacity Cast Aluminum Oil Pan from PPE solves the poor drainage problem associated with stock pans by allowing all the old dirty oil to drain out. The new pan also increases oil volume by two quarts, which helps increase thermal stamina. Using a thick aluminum alloy casting helps to further reduce engine temperatures. There is a convenient NPT tapped port in the side of the pan for a temperature sensor.
Photo 4/11   |   BD Diesel Performance solves the common Ford Single Sequential Turbocharger (SST) failures on '11-to-'14 6.7L Power Strokes with its Ford 6.7L GT37 Retro Turbos. The company did it by replacing the factory GT32 unit with a custom larger GT37 model. Kits include a BD custom cast turbine housing, backing plate, compressor cover, and pedestal for a quick installation. Turbo is available as a stock replacement or a Screamer.
Photo 5/11   |   Dakota Digital's SGI-100BT Universal Speedo & Tach Interface with Bluetooth Control provides the functionality of three devices. It can adjust/split/recalibrate an electronic speed signal, calibrate a tach signal, and aid in creating and adjusting a gas tachometer signal for diesel swap applications. The use of Bluetooth technology simplifies setup and programming.
Photo 6/11   |   TiAL Sport's Dmax 6.6L Exhaust Manifolds are the last set of high-performance exhaust manifolds you may ever need to buy for 6.6L Duramax engines. Manifolds are 3D machined and engineered with an internal flow path to provide maximum exhaust flow. The investment-cast 316L stainless steel manifolds have provisions for EGT sensors at each cylinder and one at the collector.
Photo 7/11   |   The Quick 6 GEN 2 Transmission Controller, by US Shift, is a standalone controller that allows installation of modern clutch-clutch transmissions, like the Ford 6R80 six-speed, behind any engine in any vehicle. The use of self-tuning algorithms and a new innovative OLED display with an intuitive graphical interface make setup and tuning quick and easy.
Photo 8/11   |   Adding additional sensors (boost, wideband, transmission temp, etc.) to a vehicle can be a hassle, but Dashlogic's Sensor Tap P4 simplifies it by converting any 0-5V automotive sensor into a wireless Bluetooth transmitter. Sensor Tap enables data from multiple sensors on a vehicle to be sent wirelessly directly to a smartphone, even on vehicles without OBDII.
Photo 9/11   |   Banks' Ram Air Differential Cover is a patented design that cools five times better than flat-back covers while increasing MPG and extending lubrication life. It's available for '01 and newer Chevrolet, GMC, and Dodge/Ram trucks with AAM 11.5- and 11.8-inch differentials.
Photo 10/11   |   Duralast's new Duralast Gold Ball Joints are specifically designed for truck and SUV applications. The parts incorporate exclusive integrated bearing technology that has a 12 percent larger ball and 25 percent larger bearing surface and uses induction hardened studs to better absorb heavier loads and impacts. Joints come with knurled housing and grab features to provide easier installation.
Photo 11/11   |   One of the newest units in Miller Electric's line of MIG welders, the Millermatic 255 is a machine designed to increase efficiency and productivity for light manufacturing and fabrication. This all-in-one welder has a 7-inch LED color screen with Auto-Set Elite (predefined weld settings) along with Pulsed MIG (lower heat input for less distortion on thin material and less spatter) and can be connected to 208- or 240-volt input power.
