Skyjacker’s DEF Tank Skid for 2011 Chevy Diesels
Modern low-emission diesel engines are beginning to use DEF/urea tanks as part of the emissions control systems. The 2011 Chevy 2500HD has such a tank, and it greatly benefits from the protection of a Skyjacker skid plate underneath.

  • Made from laser-cut, heavy-duty P&O steel, finished with an attractive black powdercoat
  • DEF/urea skid plate is a stand-alone product that fits stock as well as lifted vehicles

Bushwacker 4.5-Inch “Cut-Out” Super Duty Flares
Bushwacker’s latest flares for the ’08-to-’10 Super Duty are 4.5-inch “Cut-Out” style flares. They offer extended tire coverage and are built to be as rugged as the truck they’re attached to.

  • Made from Dura-Flex material that flexes back into its original shape without breaking. Dura-Flex is also 100-percent UV-protected to guard against chalking, cracking, and warping
  • Flares are backed by a limited lifetime warranty. The 4.5 inches of tire coverage provides protection from mud, debris, and rocks that can get caught in the tread of aggressive tires

Desert Rat DRX with Free Shipping
Being lightweight isn’t a good thing when it comes to winches, but it’s the best thing for shipping. Fortunately, the burly Desert Rat DRX 8,000-pound winch now comes with free shipping for a limited time. It’s a bargain priced winch that’s packed with high-value features.

  • The DRX uses a series wound motor which lives longer and takes heat much better than a permanent-magnet style
  • Other features include a 5.2hp motor, steel housing and frame components, power-out and power-in modes, automatic load holding brake, freespooling clutch, and hand-held remote control

Diesel Rx Glow Plugs
Glow plugs are a small part of a diesel engine, but their performance reverberates throughout the whole powerplant. Diesel Rx glow plugs outdo the OEM offerings.

  • Dual-coil design regulates and concentrates temperature response at the tip of the plug where it’s needed most
  • Diesel Rx glow plugs not only outperform factory plugs, they cost less too

Hook-Nosed Rack Ramps
Most four-post lifts come with a set of ramps, but they’re usually overly heavy and can scratch epoxy-coated floors. Hook-Nosed Rack Ramps are the answer.

  • Weight is as light as 9 pounds each, and Hook-Nosed Rack Ramps will not scratch floors
  • Hook-Nosed Rack Ramps bridge over the lift’s control cables, and securely stay in place during use. Three sizes accommodate tires up to 16 inches wide.
