AFe's New Mach Force-XP Exhaust for 2009 Dodge Ram with the V-8 5.7L
Advanced Flow Engineering (aFe) is pleased to announce the release of its new Mach Force-XP Cat-Back exhaust for the 2009 Dodge Ram with the V-8 5.7L motors. This exhaust system fits trucks with factory dual exhaust equipped trucks only.
The Mach Force-XP dual exhaust system is constructed from huge, mandrel-bent 3-inch diameter 409 stainless steel and utilizes bayonet-style hangers for a complete installation that won't shift under high heat conditions. Two monster-sized 4-inch 304 stainless steel tips put the finishing touch on this exhaust system. All hardware, including band-style clamps, is supplied for an easy installation.
The Mach Force-XP out-flowed the factory exhaust by 130 percent and will increase horsepower, torque and MPG.

Amsoil Diesel Recovery Emergency Fuel Treatment
Amsoil has introduced an addition to its premium line of diesel fuel additives. In cold-weather climates, diesel fuel can become gelled and prevent fuel from reaching the engine due to clogged fuel filters. Amsoil Diesel Recovery is a diesel fuel treatment that liquefies gelled diesel fuel and thaws frozen fuel filters. Naturally forming wax crystals found in diesel fuel are the leading cause of gelled engine components, and Amsoil Diesel Recovery breaks down these molecules that prevent diesels from starting in cold temperatures.
Formulated with no alcohol, which can degrade components over time, Amsoil Diesel Recovery is non-corrosive and contains no chemicals that interact with fuel system components. The new product is safe for repeated treatments.

Bed Ryder
BedRyder offers a comfortable, light weight poly seat with padded all-weather seat covers. The seats and seat covers allow for water drainage so you can leave them in your truck when not in use. The seats measure just 33-inch tall once mounted on the seat frame so they will work with most bed toppers and have a low profile stance to allow for visibility. The seats have a nice recline so you can lean back, stretch out your legs and enjoy the ride.
At the heart of the BedRyder Seating System is the patent pending removable seat frame. The seat frame is constructed of 14-gauge steel tubing and is the only truck bed seat frame to meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards for passenger seating.

Retro Look, Modern Touch
If you own a truck with big, round stock headlights, this may be for you. Chevs of the '40s now produces 7-inch replacement round headlights with LED parking lights/turn signals built in. The bulbs appear monochromatic when the turn signals aren't being used, but as soon as the switch is thrown a bright LED section kicks on to tell the world that you need to turn. The headlights install easily and can be adjusted using conventional methods, and come with complete instructions. The signal function requires an LED flasher unit, which is sold separately.
