Better Braking
EBC Brakes' 3GD series rotors are designed for cooler running and are constructed from high-quality grey iron for rigorous quality control. The slots in the rotors draw cooler air under the pad, which can shoot up to 1,000 degrees during heavy periods of braking, and the 'full sweep' slots help remove dust, debris, and water from the braking area. For additional braking power, add EBC's YellowStuff brake pads into your truck's stopping arsenal.

Performance Floor Liners
These floor liners are perfect for the winter months since trucks get used a little heavier when traveling through snow and slush this time of year. Rugged Ridge has unveiled their all-terrain floor liners for '97-'10 Ford, '02-'10 GM, and '02-'10 Dodge models. The patent pending design features a deep ribbed floor mat and deeply molded tread pattern that will channel dirt, water, and sludge away from the driver. If you're out playing or working hard in your truck, there is no reason to abuse regular carpet floor mats when a more utility and safety-minded solution is available.

Easy Speedo
Classic Instruments is now offering a module that will offer one-touch calibration with any electronic speedometer on the market. When wired up, the SN74 module converts all known signals and includes an 8,000 rpm signal output to utilize your electronic cruise control. To fully calibrate your speedo, all you need to do is push a button, drive a measured mile, and push the button again-it couldn't be easier! Once your gauge has been properly set, the module and button can be stashed out of sight behind the dash or completely removed if desired.

The 900-page, full-color catalog covers '47-'08 Chevy and GMC model trucks and features everything you'll ever need while restoring or customizing your ride.

Fit For A Hemi
MBRP is a name that is synonymous with raw power and a rugged exhaust note. Since the '09 Dodge Ram has proven to be a widely embraced model amongst the custom truck scene, MBRP has developed three new exhaust systems for the powerful Hemi powerplant-single side, dual-split side, and dual-split rear. MBRP's new, chambered muffler puts out a civilized rumble at idle, but once the throttle is mashed, the sound is simply monstrous. There is a system available for every budget, as MBRP has built their exhaust system in three different material grades. But no matter the material grade, all of MBRP's exhaust systems are built to their 'fit right the first time' quality standard.

The AM/FM unit also comes with 30 presets and an enhanced LCD display that will show MP3 and WMA track info. A full-function 18-button remote is also included in the kit, but the stereo's greatest feature is its low price tag.
