Touch Of A Button
Anyone who has struggled with the task of manually opening a tonneau cover with an armful of truck parts, Mini Truckin' magazines, goodies, etc. will appreciate SnugTop's new PowerLid option, which provides a hands-free operation.
At the push of a button, a compact, powerful actuator opens the tonneau cover. By hitting another button on the remote the tonneau will close tightly. A third, unlatching button merely opens the lid and allows it to be raised manually. The PowerLid also has a built-in safety feature that stops or reverses the direction of the lid if an obstacle is detected. The PowerLid option can be ordered with any SnugLid SL or SnugLid F2 tonneau cover.
For more information on the PowerLid, call (562) 432-5454, or visit www.snugtop.com.

Damn The Man
Kenwood's newest technology, the KOS-A200 Black Box OEM audio system interface is for those pesky factory radios that can't be removed. It's sort of like sticking it to the man! Many new vehicles come with radios that are difficult to replace because of non-standard sizing or location, or concerns over lease restrictions, and even affecting the performance of the vehicle. However, many people want to upgrade the sound systems, or add a number of aftermarket features that didn't come with the vehicle. This small hideaway box allows for product and accessory expansion through either RCA inputs, a 5L connection Bus, or a USB connection permitting attachment of a Kenwood CD changer, Sirius or XM satellite radio tuner, an iPod adapter, an HD Radio tuner, or direct playback of recorded music via an external portable music player or music storage device (flash stick, etc) all easily controlled through a hand-held remote control. All of the text information from these sources will be displayed on the factory head unit RDS display including: station name, artist, song title, and more.
