Owners of '07 Toyota Tundra Double Cab pickups equipped with the standard/short (78.7-inch) bed can now add an Xtra Vision fiberglass cap with "the perfect fit" that SnugTop is known for. Key design features of the XV include an all-glass rear door and large side windows that are tinted to lessen glare and provide extra security. The SnugTop Xtra Vision cap delivers such key benefits as secure cargo storage, a marked improvement in fuel economy over an open-bed truck, and enhancement of the Tundra's bold factory lines. It features a rugged one-piece construction, a built-in drain channel, and finished edges that allow the XV to literally blend into the truck's body. It's painted to match Toyota factory colors using the DuPont ChromaPremier basecoat/clearcoat process, and it's covered by a lifetime rain warranty. For more information, contact: SnugTop, (562) 432-5454,

ARB 4x4 Accessories has just introduced a new Deluxe-style winch bumper for Dodge trucks. Dodge Ram owners can now venture off-road in total confidence knowing that their vehicle - and their investment - are protected with the finest front-end armor system. The new bumper is available for 1500, 2500, and 3500 Ram-model Dodge trucks for years '03 to '07. The strength of this bumper comes from premium-quality steel that has been optimally folded to withstand impact. ARB's five-fold, upswept-wing design is also engineered for improved approach angle, but its unparalleled advantage is in the mounting system.

Designed for airbag compatibility, the ARB mounting system allows this aftermarket bumper to work precisely with the manufacturer's safety mechanisms and crush ratings. This winch-compatible bumper is the perfect housing for a Warn winch and will fit a variety of low-mount Warn models up to the 16,500-pound unit. Recessed indicators, Hi-Lift jacking points, driving-light provisions, and twin CB-antenna mounts are among the features of this versatile bar.

LC Engineering has taken over the complete product line of S.A. Alpine, the manufacturer that took over rights to the 2RZ/3RZ TRD supercharger kits when TRD discontinued them. Alpine is known for its supercharger and turbo kits, with applications ranging from Toyota to Hyundai to Chevy Ecotec. LCE has already stepped up the quality and performance of the 2RZ/3RZ superchargers in numerous ways. All 2RZ/3RZ supercharger kits will now be available with 8 pounds of boost (previously available on '00-and-newer models). LCE will also have a kit available to upgrade your old 4-pound kit to an 8-pound application that requires minimal modifications. For more information, contact: LC Engineering, (877) 505-2501,

Off Road Solutions (ORS) is proud to offer new motor mounts for vehicles equipped with Toyota's 3.4L 5VZFE V6. These laser-cut, 1/4-inch mild-steel mounts bolt in place of the factory Toyota motor mounts and fit all 3.4L engines, regardless of front or rear oil sump. The ORS motor mounts are MIG-welded and fully boxed, and they use two additional factory bolt-hole locations to provide excellent shear resistance for extreme wheeling or racing.

New from Advanced Flow engineering (aFe) is the BladeRunner charged-air manifold (PN 46-10012) for '03-'07 Dodge Ram HD Cummins turbodiesel pickup trucks. This new line of charged-air manifolds utilizes a patent-pending Multiple Directional Vane (MDV) technology to improve air delivery to the engine. The multiple internal vanes smooth the airflow at critical transition points for up to 32.9-percent CFM better airflow than stock. The combination of internal vanes and a less restrictive mounting-bolt design produced dyno results up to 17 hp and 50 lb-ft of torque at 1,975 rpm over the stock manifold.

In addition to the internal vanes, the BladeRunner charged-air manifold offers multiple ports (four tapped and three untapped) for various probes and injection options. For more information, contact: advanced Flow engineering, (866) 503-9911,
