AMP IT UP
PowerBastards’ 250-amp GM truck alternator delivers more than twice the power output of many OEM alternators and is a direct fit for most applications. The alternator powers high-amp accessories such as winches, HID headlights, mobile office components and more with full output at 1,200 rpm. The internally regulated unit has a one-year warranty and is available in a range of powder-coated colors or a chrome finish.
Dick Cepek’s Gun Metal 7 wheel, a gunmetal gray and machined aluminum wheel, features a seven-spoke design and is available in 17- and 20-inch sized in both low and high offsets. The wheel has a glossy clear coat that provides UV protection in harsh climates, as well as improving durability and simplifying wheel care.
LOTS OF LIGHT
The Sleekster Light Bar from Randy Ellis Design holds up to four 9-inch-diameter lights, and fits the 2006-2012 Dodge 2500/3500 models. The frame mounted bars are manufactured from C&C mandrel bent 1 3/4-inch .120 wall steel tube for durability, and finished with a powder coat. The light bar bolts on using factoring mounting locations and requires no drilling, cutting or welding. Visit propickupmag.com/info
LET IT FLOW
Corsa Performance Exhausts’ cat-back exhaust system is now available for the 2011 Toyota Tundra Double Cab and Crew Max 5.7L-engine models. The stainless single-side exit exhaust has twin four-inch Pro-Series tips and a non-restrictive design that enables a 16-percent increase in exhaust flow, allowing for 3hp and 9 lb.-ft. of torque performance improvements.

KEEP IT COLD
Experience convenience and portability in a premium cooler with the Roadie 20 model from Yeti Coolers, designed for areas with limited space. The Roadie 20 has a full-length stainless steel handle that locks upright for one-handed carrying, and the body accommodates long neck bottles and handles dry ice. The rotational-molded design ensures sturdiness while the PermaFrost Insulation walls provide thermal resistance for ice retention. Additional features include T-Rex lid latches, the NeverFail hinge system, AnchorPoint tie down slots and a full-frame ColdLock gasket. Visit propickupmag.com/info
Maximize your pickup’s towing capacity and tongue weight rating with Cequent Performance Products’ Draw-Tite Class 5 Ultra Frame hitch, which features a cast center section instead of tube construction. The heavy-duty next generation hitch also has a large chain hookup for easy access, and the trailer hitch interacts cleanly with the electrical harness and other parts. The Draw-Tite line is manufactured in the United States.
BD Diesel Performance’s Positive Air Shutdown kits feature a compact inline butterfly valve which, when activated by a heavy duty electrical solenoid, will shut down your engine within seconds. A locking lever prevents accidental closures caused by vibration, and a bead boot-lock design keeps rubber boots in place under high boost pressures. Composed of aluminum and stainless, the kits have waterproof electrical connectors to minimize corrosion. The kits are available for 3- and 4-inch post turbo engine intakes. Choose from either an RPM over speed sensor or manual shutdown option.
Advanced Flow Engineering’s Wastegate Actuator for the 2003-2007 Dodge Cummins I6-5.9L is manufactured from black anodized CNC T6061 billet aluminum, maximizing both strength and style. The aFe Power actuator has a fully adjustable actuator arm with a locking jam nut, ensuring precise boost pressure settings. The system is preset to 40 psi, with little or no adjustment needed.
Experience horsepower and torque gains with the 2011 Ford F150 3.5L Eco Boost Rapid Flow cold-air intake system from Bully Dog, which replaces the stock air intake lid, air filter and second tube assembly. The Rapid Flow system has an eight-layer cotton cause air filter that Bully Dog says improves airflow by 25 percent over stock models while filtering out more than 99 percent of particulates. The system is fully enclosed to prevent radiant engine heat from entering the air intake stream.
