Rollin' On 19s
Nothing on the market compares with ROH's 19-inch Fury wheel. This wheel has that classic five-spoke look, but the difference is the incredibly smooth spoke-profile, which lends a stunning visual effect when the truck is stationary. Available now for Chevy S-10s, Ford Rangers, or Toyota pickups in 17x7-, 17x8-, 18x8-, and 19x8-inch sizes. There are three available finishes to match your mini: Sparkle Silver, Black Ice, and Classic Chrome. For more information, contact: Group A Inc., Dept. MT, 251 E.

If you want to back up that custom mini-truck look with real-world performance, you should check out the HoseLock from Pi-Thon Design Inc. Your cooling system, along with all the other components of your engine, is only as strong as its weakest link. This is why Pi-Thon offers the HoseLock to replace practically all the conventional hose clamps in your engine compartment. Simply remove the old clamp, slide one of the billet-aluminum HoseLock compression fittings over the end of the hose, push the hose back into place, and tighten. The internal ring compresses the hose against the neck for a positive seal and bulletproof connection. Each HoseLock is CNC-machined, then brightly polished or anodized in wide variety of eye-catching colors. Whether you prefer stealthy truck performance or have your hood open at every truck show across the country, replace the boring hose clamps on your truck with Pi-Thon HoseLocks and know that you have the ultimate look and performance.

Have you realized that when it comes to exhaust tubes, bigger isn't always better? Here's a simple and inexpensive solution. Power Squeeze venturi tubes are designed to boost low- and mid-range torque without losing top-end power, and are especially effective in 3-inch-and-larger exhaust systems. The Power Squeeze venturis slide into your existing collector or pipe and simply bolt into place. The venturi effect allows for better scavenging, makes it possible to fine-tune for maximum torque and horsepower, and can reduce the likelihood of reversion.
