2. No More Hot Floor
Thermo Tec has the answer to your hot floor needs with the Kevlar muffler cover. The Kevlar side can handle continuous temperatures up to 1,100 degrees F while the mylar side is very tough and abrasion resistant. The Kevlar cover reduces radiant heat inside the vehicle, dampens muffler noise, improves life expectancy of muffler, and has a nice appearance. The kit includes stainless steel straps for easy installation.
3. Night Vision Bumper
Fiberglass high-visibility bumpers for popular late-model trucks are now available from Ansani Designs. Not covers, these are direct replacements for factory bumpers. These bumpers are manufactured by hand using a combination of uni-directional fiberglass and ’glass mat along with polyester resin. The design incorporates mounting pods for three auxiliary lights (not included). The bumpers utilize factory mounts and brackets and come with Grade 8 hardware for a simple install. Applications are currently available for ’03-’07 Silverado/Sierra 2500HD, ’07-’09 Silverado/Sierra, ’08-’09 F-250, and ’07-’09 Tundra.
4. No More Key Fob
The Essex Keypad Keyless Entry System can be used to operate factory installed door locks or one of the A1 Electric power door lock kits. The keypad allows keyless entry to a vehicle by entering a three- to eight-digit code. The door lock interface and optional outputs may require additional relays for operation, depending on vehicle make and model. The standard unit comes with horizontal mounting hardware. Order the vertical mounting option if you wish to mount the unit vertically on the door. It comes with a paper template for drilling holes. This unit interfaces with A1’s MES door lock systems without the addition of any relays or extra components.

5. Tuff Tire
The Open Country H/T with Tuff Duty is the newest roller in Toyo’s lineup of tires. It has been specifically engineered for high-torque diesel pickup trucks that tow trailers or occasionally haul heavy loads. Tuff Duty three-belt construction reinforces and stabilizes internal tire construction while less tread-void results in a larger surface area for more rubber on the road. Also contributing to longer tread life and longer wear is a deeper tread depth, up to 17/32. At the same time, the tire delivers the exceptional ride comfort and balanced all-season performance of the traditional Open Country H/T. The new tire is available in five 16- to 17-inch sizes and all are load range E.
