Big Boom, Little RoomIf you have a standard-cab truck and still want big bass, check out the Kicker CompVT line of thin subwoofers from Stillwater Designs. They come in 6.5- and 8-inch sizes and can be mounted directly against the rear wall of a sealed or vented enclosure, permitting the woofers to perform in depths less than 3-3/8 inches.
Keep It CleanEagle One has two new products in its detailing arsenal: Tire Shine Gel and A2Z All Wheel & Tire Cleaner. The thick Tire Shine Gel clings to the tire with no drip or sling. The result is a lasting, glossy shine that will complement great-looking wheels. The A2Z, which now comes in a convenient aerosol can, cleans wheels with a thick foam to dissolve road grime and brake dust. Just spray on and hose off.
Move That TankThe engineers at Performance Online have expanded their classic truck product line by offering the first rear-mount aluminum fuel tank for '73-'87 Chevrolet C10/C20 trucks. These fuel tanks mount behind the rear axle and offer increased fuel capacity and safety and replace the factory-recalled sidesaddle tank. Made of heavy-gauge aluminum, these 19-gallon tanks offer a lightweight design and are fully baffled.
Make It HandleOn The Ground Performance (OTGP) has a suspension upgrade kit for '99-'04 Ford F-150 Lightnings and '97-'03 F-150s. This kit includes tubular upper and lower control arms and a power rack-and-pinion kit. OTGP has redesigned the arms for the performance market. The upper ball joints have been relocated to the rear of the vehicle for an additional 3-plus degrees of positive caster, as well as being shifted outboard to compensate for lowered vehicles to achieve 0 degrees of camber if necessary. The ball-joint angle has been changed to correct angularity problems associated with lowered vehicles with stock upper control arms. The ball joint is now correctly aligned with the spindle. A 15:1 power rack-and-pinion comes with all the lines, fittings, stainless steel universal joints, steering shaft, and idler bearing as well as a fabricated steering-idler bracket and all hardware necessary for a complete bolt-in assembly.
