Are you like most enthusiasts -- tired of the boring look of your stock gauge cluster but not ready to upgrade to a completely custom dash yet? Nu Image has been producing new-style gauge faces for many years available for the majority of trucks on the road today. Fresh off its production line are the new stainless steel gauge faces for your Toyota Tundra or Tacoma truck. The installation is as easy as removing the gauge cluster from your dash, popping open the clear cover and laying down the new face.

The new Air Zenith Fast Air Pump is engineered for air-ride suspension vehicles. It features a 200-psi-rated working pressure, 100-percent duty cycle, and moisture- and dust-resistant, oil-free design. The patented Interchangeable Piston Technology allows users to replace piston rings periodically to prolong air pump life. The Fast Air Pump is equipped with a high-performance, racing-style air filter and a stainless steel braided air hose with inline check valve. It takes less than two minutes to fill up a 5-gallon air tank from 160 psi to 200 psi.

Off Road Unlimited is now offering an application for '99-'05 GM 1/2-ton 4WD pickups and SUVs. The GM 1500 2-inch Leveling Kit combines torsion bar cogs with extended-length Bilstein 5100-series high-pressure monotube shocks. The ORU system uses special torsion-bar adjuster cogs that are reindexed to level the vehicle without compromising suspension performance. Installation is straightforward and can be accomplished in less than two hours (excluding the required professional alignment). The job requires a special tool -- also available from ORU -- to safely unload and reload the torsion bars.
