Who Really Wants Scars?
The Ringers' glove has strategically placed gel pads in the palm designed to absorb impact and vibration. Ringers' gel pads reduce the amount of harmful impact and vibration transferred to the hands when using tools such as impact guns, wrenches, and air tools. Clarino synthetic leather on the palm and fingers provides excellent wear qualities, and all the seams around the fingers are hidden to prevent snagging. Impact-resistant, free-flex Airprene covers the backs of the hand, knuckles, and index finger and keeps the hands comfortable and dry. The SplitFit Air Gloves are lightweight, machine washable, and available in blue, black, yellow, or red, from sizes XXS to XXL. For more information, contact: Ringers Gloves, Dept.

AVS, the manufacturer of AirTronix air ride controllers, presents its new Cadillac-style taillights, dubbed Kadeez. Kadeez come with your choice of red or clear acrylic lenses. What makes these lights stand out is a row of high-intensity LED lights that glow from top to bottom. You'll never have to worry about blowing a bulb out again. Kadeez makes installation on a truck a lot easier because the lights are about half the depth of a factory Cadi' light, so cutting is minimized. More good news if you have regular Cadillac lights on your truck: Kadeez will swap right in! All that's involved is a simple three-wire hook-up for running brake and signal functions. Chrome trim rings are included. The lights are available by themselves or in a complete kit that includes taillight fillers and buckets for most trucks. For more information, contact: AVS, Dept. MT, 2040 E. Home Ave., Fresno, CA 93703, (559) 486-5444, www.airbagparts.com.

Nissan frontier owners can enjoy the added power and fuel economy from a Volant cold-air intake system. Designed for the 3.3L V-6 Nissan engine, the Volant kit number 12633 comes with a unique cold airbox and high-flow intake tube that eliminates restriction and increases airflow without added noise. The high-flow, reusable air filter has deeper pleats for more surface area, and the polyurethane construction will not bend or warp. The Nissan 3.3L V-6 system connects to all OE hoses and sensors and is manufactured from high-grade, X-link polyethylene. This system seals out hot underhood air and keeps dirt and moisture away from the air filter to provide longer protection and a cleaner, colder air charge for increased performance. All Volant cold-air intake systems come with a faux carbon-fiber lid, stainless-steel hardware, and Volant's special compound silicone sleeves, which maintain a tight seal under extreme temperatures.
