Pressurize It
According to Magna Charger, by installing the company's supercharger system, you can enjoy a 30- to 40-percent increase in power from your 6.0L V-8 Chevy or GMC truck without affecting reliability. The system is 50-state emissions-legal, and features an Eaton twin-rotor, rear-inlet Roots-type supercharger. Information: Magna Charger, 805/289-2044,

High Voltage
If you're running an electric fuel pump, consider picking up a Holley 30 Amp relay kit. Electric fuel pumps, generally mounted toward the rear fuel tank, require long-wire runs which can occasionally result in voltage loss. This Holley kit should help ensure that the electric fuel pump receives full voltage from the battery-always a good thing. Information: Holley, 270/782-2900,

Cocky Camshaft
Want responsiveness, torque, and reliability from your camshaft? Comp Cams says its new Xtreme Energy line of cams should do the trick. The company says that the faster valve opening provided by these cams increases engine vacuum and enhances throttle response, providing more cylinder pressure without excessive valvetrain noise. Information: Comp Cams, 800/999-0853,

Bumper Corps
You can't tame your Dodge truck, but you can add a good-looking wrap-around winch bumper to that puppy. Consider Trailready's new Roadarmor Extreme Duty front bumper. Featuring a 1/4-inch gusseted subframe with a 3/16-inch steel outer skin, this bumper can be ordered with recessed light ports and in a multitude of colors and configurations. Information: Trailready, 425/353-6776,
