Made for the Rocks
Poly Performance introduces a durable and affordable shock for your rockcrawling rig. They are available in 11-, 13-, and 15-inch travel applications.

More Power demands More Brakes
Heavy loads create stress and ultimately increase truck operating expenses. One way to help extend the life of your brakes is to add a BD Exhaust Brake and Auto/PressureLoc. BD's variable-orifice brake valve design gives you peak retarding power in town and on the road. The electronics integrate with your engine and transmission by controlling the torque converter lockup clutch apply time and increase transmission clutch apply pressure to increase retarding efficiency and maintain low transmission temperatures.

Simple Propane Power
Injecting your diesel engine with propane not only increases horsepower and torque, but it also improves fuel economy and promotes cleaner and more efficient combustion. This system automatically adjusts to the amount of propane needed by monitoring the engine's vacuum levels. This not only ensures the right mixture of propane to your diesel fuel, but it also keeps it within safe levels. The TS Performance system also includes a vaporizer that eliminates the possibility of liquid propane from entering into the engine, and in some applications, the TS Performance Propane System can deliver as much as 100 extra horsepower. The TS Performance Propane System fits all Ford, GM, and Dodge applications and will work with your new or existing propane tank.
