A New Exhaust for a New F-150

Huntsville, ON (Aug 20, 2009) : MBRP has matched Ford's re-design of its top selling F-150, innovation for innovation. Available in your choice of single side, dual split side and dual split rear these performance exhaust systems perform, look and sound like no other.

At the heart of these new kits is MBRP’s new chambered muffler. This muffler produces a civilized rumble at idle and aggressive growl when you put the pedal down. Equally important, it is able to rapidly and efficiently move hot exhaust gases to ensure that your engine is operating as cool and clean as possible.

MBRP was able to utilize state-of-the-art technology in developing its systems for the new F-150. Central to this development process was MBRP’s Mustang 1100 AWD dynamometer which allows precise prototype refinement simulating a wide variety of load conditions in both 2X4 and 4X4. By testing and retesting a multitude of prototypes our R&D team was able to ensure that every ounce of raw horsepower and torque is converted into performance.

Available in three material grades, MBRP has a system priced for every pocketbook. The top of the line Pro Series is crafted from T304 stainless steel. XP Series is constructed using T409 stainless steel. Both stainless products are backed by MBRP’s Lifetime warranty. Also available is MBRP’s Installer Series built from aluminized steel, value priced and backed by a three year warranty. Regardless of the grade selected every system is built to the same exacting specifications to MBRP's "fits right the first time" quality. And regardless of grade every kit comes complete with T304 mirror polished stainless steel tips.

SuperSteer Introduces Steering Upgrade for GM Trucks

SUPER STEER IDLER SUPPORT ASSEMBLY ELIMINATES STEERING SLOP IN GM 1500-2500 SERIES IFS TRUCKS

Owners of ’93-’98 GM 1500-2500 IFS trucks can now enjoy responsive steering with SuperSteer’s new SS170 idler support assembly. Designed as a direct replacement for the factory part, the SS170 features a robust cast-aluminum, powder-coated housing and tapered roller bearings instead of sleeve bushings. The tapered roller bearing design is not only better at carrying load, but can also be adjusted to remove side play for precise movement. The SS170 comes with Grade 8 hardware and instructions. SuperSteer also offers a complete steering upgrade package (#SS170K6) that includes the idler support and a brace kit that ties the pitman arm, center link and idler support together to prevent premature ball socket wear and toe changes.

Rough Country Offers Support for HD Tie Rod

Chevy Tie Rod Sleeve

Dyersburg, TN (Jun 16, 2009) – One area seriously lacking on the Chevy HD is the steering link.

That problem is only intensified when you beef up the truck’s appearance with an off-road tire and wheel package. Rough Country combats this issue with its new HD Tie Rod Sleeve. Taking the outside diameter from .5” to 1”, this steel sleeve strengthens the steering components on the HD with an install time of only an hour. Rough Country’s HD Tie Rod Sleeve simply takes the place of the stock jam nut giving you sturdy assurance that handling issues are not a concern for you anymore.
