Chrome-Plated Brake Booster Assemblies From Stainless Steel BrakesWhile the readers of OFF-ROAD don't necessarily go whole-hog with the chrome-plate treatment, a few super-shiny components here and there can really add a lot to a truck's - even a functional truck's - appearance. Thus, we present the Stainless Steel Brakes Corporation's Chrome-Plated Brake Booster Assemblies. Available in 7- and 9-inch-diameter versions, the single-diaphragm boosters include a new dual-bowl master hydraulic cylinder; are equipped with nickel-plated mounting brackets; and sport a chromed master cylinder cover with a slick, non-chromed billet aluminum cover as optional equipment. Beyond the shiny stuff, each SSBC booster and master cylinder is covered by a one-year warranty, and is available for nearly every Ford, GM, or Mopar truck built during the past several decades. For more information, contact: Stainless Steel Brakes Corporation, Dept. OR, 11470 Main Rd., Clarence, NY 14031, (800) 448-7722,

Superlift 6-inch Suspension System for Chevrolet Tahoe/GMC Yukon and Chevrolet AvalancheSuperlift, one of the true legends in tall, yet functional suspension systems, is at it again; this time with a complete 6-inch lift system for '00-and-newer fullsize GM SUVs and the Avalanche. Because of the complex design of the OE independent front suspension on the Tahoe, Yukon, and 'lanche, Superlift deemed that a complete system that would lower the entire front suspension and differential of the GM trucks would be required if chassis and suspension integrity were to be maintained in the Superlift tradition. To engineer such a system was no small task, but Superlift was able to drop the entire front suspension with 3/16-inch, laser-cut steel brackets (1/4-inch steel on 3/4-ton trucks). The use of these brackets means that all factory suspension angles and steering geometry are retained, and the Tahoe, Yukon, and Avalanche will retain factory alignment settings. There's more: Superlift's system allows the OE steering linkage to be retained, and 1/2-ton kits are supplied with dual shock hoops. For the rear suspension, Superlift offers preset, lifted coil springs; an optional skidplate; and kicker braces to upgrade the system. For more information, contact: Superlift Suspension Systems, Dept. OR, 300 Huey Lenard Loop Rd., West Monroe, LA 71292, (318) 397-3000, (800) 551-4955 (tech support),

Modular Chassis Wiring Harness From Painless Performance Whether you're scratch-building an off-road prerunner or race truck, restoring a vintage 4x4, or simply adding a few electrical circuits to handle a winch, powerful lights, or a thumpin' sound system, you'll need a wiring harness, and it seems only natural that the crew at Painless Performance would introduce an electrical assembly to make adding those circuits a breeze. The new Modular Chassis Wiring Harness from Painless is a basic four-circuit system that includes a wired fuse block and dual interlocking cradles that lock the fuse block in place. If you need more than four circuits, the modular design of the Painless fuse block allows additional pre-wired fuse blocks to snap into place on the first fuse block, producing a total of 8, 12, or 16 circuits. Painless offers an array of flashers and relays for use with the Modular Chassis Wiring Harness, allowing a custom electrical system to be built with little hassle. Painless Performance's Modular Chassis Wiring Harness is covered by a lifetime warranty. For more information, contact: Painless Performance, Dept. OR, 9505 Santa Paula Dr., Fort Worth, TX 76116, (817) 244-6898,
