LED Strip Lighting

Truck-Lite’s LED Super Strip-Lite is a new form of lighting using Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) evenly spaced on a fabricated aluminum channel. Four-foot strips use 12 diodes, while two-foot strips have six diodes. Both have diodes spaced every four inches. The lightweight LED Super Strip-Lites are available in two styles of extrusions, shaped either for mounting flat or into corners. They can be mounted almost anywhere, but are most effective in corners, evenly spaced on roof interiors or in vocational trucks, along horizontal or vertical shelf and cabinet surfaces. Lamps draw only 0.7 amps for each 6-diode, 2-foot strip. A 12-diode, 4-foot strip draws 1.4 amps.

Lund’s new LynxWing features a universal trunk mount design, allowing it to be installed on most sport compact cars, and its 58 inch length, with two tiers measuring just over 10 inches high, makes for a super touring style. Durable, blow moulded ABS construction prevents cracking, and its primed surface is a breeze to paint. Copper nut inserts and stainless steel screws eliminate hardware corrosion. Lighted style includes DOT approved LED lights.

Steppin’ Out Assistance

The AMP Research Power Step is the most convenient and easiest way to enter or exit the cab of a 1999-2005 Chevy Silverado or GMC Sierra. The automatic running board extends and then retracts by simply opening and closing the cab door. Everything is automatic.

Titanium WRX Strut Bars

DC Sports has introduced race-inspired Titanium upper front and rear Strut Bars for the Subaru WRX and WRX STi (part numbers STT4301 front and STT4401 rear). Strut bars reduce a vehicle’s chassis flex by connecting the vehicle body at the shock towers for added stiffness. The company’s strut bars vastly improve a car’s road manners and handling characteristics, work with the factory suspension components, and are a must for road race applications or spirited drivers with heavily modified street vehicles. Manufactured from ultra-light 6AI-4V aerospace titanium with titanium mounting pads, the units feature TIG-welded fittings and mounting pads to ensure lasting durability, and mount directly to strut tower with no modifications required.
