8 THE SHOP JULY 2017 MADE -IN-THE- USA PRODUCTS 8 THE SHOP JULY 2017 JK Front & Rear Axle Trusses Synergy MFG, San Luis Obispo, California, presents Front and Rear Axle Trusses for Jeep JK applications. The front axle truss replaces the front axle bushings and weak passenger-side upper control arm mount that are prone to premature failure with lifts and larger tires. Dual Durometer Bushings (DDB) are integrated into the front truss design, eliminating weak links in the factory housing and offering improved performance in a maintenance-free package. The weld-on rear axle truss strengthens the factory housing with a CNC formed design that reduces installation time. Running Boards Luverne Truck Equipment, Brandon, South Dakota, presents its Grip Step 7-inch running boards for fleet pickups, commercial vans and other professional vehicles. Combining fleet-approved, expanded metal treads that cover the entire length of the boards and powder-coated aluminum construction, Grip Steps are designed for strength, weight savings and rust resistance. Made in the USA, they offer a highly durable, textured black powder-coat finish for maximum corrosion resistance, and each board is accented with durable ABS end caps. Fender Flare Trim Trim-Lok, Buena Park, California, presents Trim-Lok Fender Flare Trim, an ozone-resistant EPDM rubber seal that mounts between the flare and the vehicle's body. The trim is easily installed before the fender flare is positioned against the body using peel-and-stick 3M automotive- grade tape. It eliminates the need for screw-on mounting and aids in the installation, creating a solid bond between both surfaces. Trim-Lok products are made in the USA in Buena Park and Elkhart, Indiana. Billet Shackles Road Armor, Dallas, offers Billet Shackles made in the USA. Precision-machined from 6061 aluminum with an ultimate failure threshold greater than 40,000 pounds, the shackles feature a rugged industrial design and are available in a variety of finishes. They feature a 7/8-inch-diameter 304 stainless steel double-shear pin and quick-release retainer pin for on-the- go use. Snap rings are included for both ends of the pin to deter theft, and the shackles are compatible with InfiniteRule Security universal locking pins. Snap & Grommet Installer HooVer Products, San Jacinto, California, presents the versatile and easy-to-use Pres-N-Snap snap and grommet installer. Pres-N- Snap is capable of setting numerous brands of fasteners, simply by changing the dies. Many of the dies have rubber retainers to hold the fasteners in place during installation, and the company offers dies for standard and baby-sized snaps, regular and self-piercing grommets, and other specialty applications. The Pres-N-Snap, its components and all of the company's other products are manufactured in the USA. Black Wheel Locks, Lug Nuts & Lug Bolts McGard LLC, Orchard Park, New York, offers Black Wheel Locks, Lug Nuts and Lug Bolts. The black chrome finish has a deep, reflective appearance that provides a monochromatic look on black wheels and an attractive contrast on silver or chrome wheels. McGard lug nuts and bolts won't chip, peel or rust, while the one-piece wheel lock is easy to use. Most applications are available in Wheel Installation Kits that include everything needed to install new wheels in one convenient package. The parts are also available in bright chrome. Corvette Power Programmer Hypertech, Bartlett, Tennessee, offers its updated Max Energy 2.0 Power Programmer for 2014-'16 Chevrolet Corvette 6.2-liter LT1 applications, adding new custom tuning features and 8-speed transmission tuning.
