(ANNOUNCER)>> TODAY WE'RE WORKING ON PROJECT ROLLING THUNDER, PUTTING OUR SUPERCHARGED STREET AND TRACK TRUCK ON THE DYNO FOR SOME ENGINE TUNING. THEN WE'RE GONNA SEE JUST HOW MUCH POWER WE'RE MAKING WITH OUR FOUR POINT SIX ALUMINATOR POWERED RANGER. IT'S ALL TODAY HERE ON TRUCKS.

(RYAN)>> HEY GUYS, WELCOME TO TRUCKS.

TODAY WE'RE DOWN HERE AT DBR HIGH PERFORMANCE IN

SPRING HILL TENNESSEE, GETTING READY TO PUT THE RANGER ON THE ROLLERS AND SEE WHAT KIND OF POWER IT MAKES. AND WE'RE GONNA GET IT ROAD READY WITH A CUSTOM DYNO TUNE.

(KEVIN)>> DBR HIGH PERFORMANCE SPECIALIZES IN ALL MAKES AND MODELS, WITH A FOCUS ON IMPROVING PERFORMANCE, AND COOWNER DAVID BRANSON WAS BORN TO RUN THIS SHOP.

(DAVID)>> MY DAD DID REPAIRS AS A KID, CAR REPAIRS, HE HAD A LITTLE IMPORT SHOP, AND I JUST GREW UP.

I LOVED WORKING ON STUFF. I LOVED TAKING SOMETHING THAT WAS BROKEN AND FIXING IT, AND I LEARNED THAT I COULD TAKE SOMETHING THAT

WASN'T BROKEN AND MAKE IT BETTER, AND I LIKE THAT EVEN MORE.

(KEVIN)>> THE ENTIRE STAFF AT DBR ARE SERIOUS HOT RODDERS USING A GET IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME APPROACH THAT STARTS FROM A SOLID FOUNDATION OF FUNDAMENTAL SKILLS. THAT AND THE STELLAR LOCAL REPUTATION LED US STRAIGHT

TO THEIR FRONT DOOR WITH ROLLING THUNDER.

(DAVID)>> WHEN I WAS IN COLLEGE I WORKED FOR AN IMPORT SHOP JUST DOING OIL CHANGES, MINOR REPAIRS, AND THEN OUT OF COLLEGE I WORKED FOR A SHOP DOING CUSTOM WORK. AND THEN I WORKED FOR MERCEDESBENZ FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS JUST A SERVICE TECH.

(KEVIN)>> DAVID'S VERSION OF THE AMERICAN DREAM WAS TO OPEN UP HIS OWN HIGH PERFORMANCE SHOP, BUT NOBODY EVER TOLD HIM IT WAS GOING TO BE EASY.

(DAVID)>> ME AND MY BUSINESS PARTNER TALKED ABOUT IT, PRAYED ABOUT, AND WE FINALLY DECIDED TO OPEN THE DOORS, AND WE'VE BEEN AT IT FOR A LITTLE OVER FOUR YEARS. BUILT A LOT OF COOL STUFF AND HAD A WHOLE LOT OF FUN DOING IT. SO WE STRICTLY DO HIGH PERFORMANCE.

(KEVIN)>> PROJECTS OF THIS CALIBER DON'T END UP AT YOUR LOCAL SERVICE STATION, AND YOU HAVE TO EARN THE TRUST OF YOUR CUSTOMERS.

(DAVID)>> I WOULD SAY 80 PERCENT OF OUR CUSTOMERS SAY WE WANT THIS, AND THEY DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET THERE, AND THEY USE US TO LET THEM GET THERE. THIS IS WHAT WE WANT, THIS IS OUR BUDGET, HOW DO WE GET THERE.

(KEVIN)>> AMERICAN MUSCLE IS DEFINITELY PART OF WHAT THESE GUYS DO WELL, BUT AS LONG AS HIGH PERFORMANCE IS IN THE EQUATION, DBR IS UP TO THE CHALLENGE.

(DAVID)>> BUT IT DOESN'T MATTER, FOUR CYLINDER, VEIGHT, V-12, BOOST, N/A, NITROUS, JUST GOING FAST.

(KEVIN)>> TUNING AND ENGINES ARE NOT ALL THAT HAPPENS HERE.

DBR CAN TACKLE EVERY ASPECT OF A BUILD, WHICH HAS DEFINITELY HELPED THEM GROW THEIR BUSINESS.

(DAVID)>> YES WE HAVE GROWN PRETTY SUBSTANTIAL. IT WAS PRETTY FLUID THE FIRST THREE, FOUR YEARS, AND THEN JUST THIS LAST YEAR HAS BEEN HUGE. WE'RE PRETTY BUSY RIGHT NOW. WE'RE ABOUT TWO MONTHS OUT ON BUILDS.

(KEVIN)>> NOW ALONG WITH THE SHOP THE RETAIL STORE IS VERY WELL STOCKED. AND WHAT'S NOT IN HOUSE IS A CLICK AWAY.

(BRIAN)>> DBR, THIS IS BRIAN, HOW CAN I HELP YOU.

(DAVID)>> YEAH, WE HAVE A SHOWROOM FULL OF A LOT OF STUFF THAT YOUR TYPICAL WEEKEND RACER WOULD NEED. A GUY AT THE DRAG STRIP, REBUILD PARTS FOR

CARBURETORS, NITROUS PARTS, STUFF LIKE THAT. WE HAVE AN ONLINE WEBSITE THAT HAS A LITTLE OVER 30,000 PARTS ON IT, ANYTHING FROM A MODELT TO ANY LATE MODEL CAR, MUSTANG, CAMARO.

(KEVIN)>> NOW WE ASKED DAVID IF THEIR SUCCESS HAS INSPIRED THOUGHTS OF FUTURE GROWTH OR EXPANSION FOR DBR.

(DAVID)>> NEXT ON THE LIST IS GOING TO BE SOME TYPE OF EXPANSION, MORE ROOM, MORE SQUARE FOOTAGE.

(KEVIN)>> NOW WHEN WE FIRST CALLED DAVID TO TALK WITH HIM ABOUT ROLLING THUNDER, IT WAS OBVIOUS THAT THE PROJECT WAS A LITTLE UNUSUAL.

(DAVID)>> IT WAS COOL, WEIRD, IT'S SO WEIRD,

BUT IN A REALLY COOL WAY. MY FIRST REACTION WAS A RANGER WITH A TERMINATOR.

I JUST COULDN'T PUT THE TWO TOGETHER. I JUST PICTURED LIKE A DIRTY RANGER WITH A TERMINATOR IN IT, SPINNING TIRES WITH RUST FALLING OFF. AND THEN ONCE I GOT MORE EDUCATED WITH THE PROJECT, JUST ALL THE WORK THAT'S BEEN PUT INTO IT, THE

LENGTHENING OF IT, THE FENDERS, THE SUSPENSION, SUPER EXCITED ABOUT BEING ABLE TO BE A PART OF IT.

I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE IT, YOU KNOW, ACTUALLY ON THE TRACK.

(DAVID)>> IT'S DONE!

(KEVIN)>> WE'RE READY?

(DAVID)>> WE'RE READY.

THE FIRST THING WE DID WHEN WE GOT ROLLING THUNDER WAS JUST DO A BASIC CHECK OVER THE VEHICLE. FOUND A COUPLE OF THINGS WE NEED TO FIX RIGHT AWAY. GOT THOSE KIND OF IN ORDER. SO TO POWER ON? WITH JOHN LUND WITH LUND RACING WE DEVELOPED A CALIBRATION TO GET THE THING STARTED.

(RYAN)>> I SEE WE'VE GOT A NEW MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR ON HERE TOO.

TELL ME ABOUT THAT.

(DAVID)>> YEAH, WE CHOSE TO USE THE BA

3,000 FROM SCT. A STOCK METER WOULD MAX OUT AT THIS LEVEL. THE BA 3,000 ALLOWS US TO CALIBRATE THE VEHICLE CORRECTLY. AND THE MATH TABLES DON'T MAX OUT SO THEY DON'T GO INTO THE FELL TABLES. ONCE WE HAD THE THING STARTED AND RUNNING WE DIALED IN THE IDLE.

(RYAN)>> IDLE SOUNDS REAL GOOD.

(DAVID)>> GOT THE IDLE TUNED PERFECTLY.

(RYAN)>> NOW ONE OF THE FINAL STEPS BEFORE MAKING OUR DYNO PULL IS MAKING SURE THAT THIS LAB GRADE LAMB

DISCENSOR, OR OXYGEN CENSOR IS CALIBRATED TO THE AMBIENT AIR. SO WE KNOW WE'RE GETTING GOOD, ACCURATE READINGS.

(KEVIN)>> DBR EVEN HAS AN IN HOUSE WEATHER STATION, WHICH REALLY HELPS DIAL IN PRECISE CALIBRATIONS.

(DAVID)>> READY TO FIRE UP?

(RYAN)>> LETS GET SOME HEAT IN THIS THING.

(DAVID)>> WE'RE GONNA START AND MAKE A PULL FROM 2,000 TO 4,000.

IF WE LIKE WHAT WE SEE WE'LL GO FROM THERE. IF NOT WE'LL MAKE SOME CHANGES, GO FROM THERE. [ engine revving ]

(KEVIN)>> I CAN FEEL IT, WOW!

(DAVID)>> WE KIND OF TAKE BABY STEPS. WE LOOK EVERYTHING OVER. WE LOOK AT THE BOOST, WE LOOK AT ALL THE TEMPERATURES, WE CHECK THE BELTS, WE CHECK THE

DRIVELINE, MAKE SURE EVERYTHING'S OKAY. WITH THE HELP OF LUND RACING WE MAKE CHANGES BASED OFF OF WHAT WE SAW AND THEN WE MAKE ANOTHER PULL, USUALLY 2,000 TO 5,000.

(KEVIN)>> THE HAIR'S STANDING UP, WOW.

(DAVID)>> ON, AND ON, AND ON UNTIL WE GET TO THE REV LIMIT OF THAT VEHICLE, UNTIL IT'S DONE. SO TAKING BABY STEPS IS A WAY TO PREVENT ACCIDENTS. [ engine revving ]

(DAVID)>> THE FINISHED PRODUCT IS WE HAVE AN SCT HAND HELD THAT YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TWO DIFFERENT TUNES ON.

(RYAN)>> ALRIGHT ON THE STREET AND TRACK TUNE WE'RE LOOKING PRETTY GOOD. NOW HE'S GOT US SET UP MAKING A LOT OF TORQUE ON THE BOTTOM END AND OUR HORSEPOWER CURVE LOOKS GREAT AND IT'S STILL RISING WHEN HE SHUTS IT DOWN. LOOK AT OUR NUMBERS, 522 HORSE AT THE REAR WHEELS, 525 POUNDS OF TORQUE, 11 POUNDS OF BOOST, ROCK AND ROLL, I WANT TO DRIVE THIS THING.

(DAVID)>> THE POTENTIAL YOU HAVE IS YOU'RE BARELY TOUCHING THE SURFACE. WE'RE ONLY AT 11, 12 POUNDS OF BOOST. THAT ENGINE, YOU COULD EASILY RUN 15 TO 17 ON PUMP GAS. IF THERE'S ANYTHING THAT I COULD DO DIFFERENTLY ON THIS BUILD IT WOULD PROBABLY BE A BIGGER BLOWER JUST BECAUSE I LIKE TO GO FAST AND I LIKE STUFF BIG AND FAST. SO THAT'S ABOUT IT THOUGH.

(RYAN)>> ALRIGHT, NOW ON A PUMP GAS DRAG TUNE WHERE HE

ADDED A COUPLE OF DEGREES OF TIMING, THIS THING RESPONDED BY MAKING 550 HORSEPOWER AND 540 POUNDS OF TORQUE. SO NEEDLESS TO SAY, WE'RE BEYOND SIKED, AND WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO FLIP A COIN OR ARM WRESTLE OR SOMETHING TO DETERMINE WHO GETS TO DRIVE THIS BAD BOY HOME.

(DAVID)>> WE WERE VERY PLEASED WITH HOW WE WERE ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH THE GOAL FOR THIS TRUCK. I FEEL LIKE THE CALIBRATION THAT'S IN IT IS GOING TO BE VERY SAFE. YOU'RE GONNA GET A LOT OF FUN OUT OF IT, AND THERE'S TONS OF ROOM FOR POTENTIAL.

(RYAN)>> HEY GUYS, WELCOME BACK TO TRUCKS.

NOW YOU'VE SEEN US WORK ON AN ECOBOOST F-150 BEFORE, BUT THE LAST TIME WE HAD ONE IN THE SHOP IT WAS ABOUT UTILITY AND SERVICE. THIS IS ABOUT POWER AND ECONOMY.

(KEVIN)>> NOW WE ALL KNOW THAT A POWER PROGRAMMER IS A GREAT WAY TO GET A LITTLE MORE SEAT OF THE PANTS FEEL AND MORE HIGH PERFORMANCE OUT OF YOUR GAS POWERED VEHICLE. BUT LIKE WITH MY PERSONAL VEHICLE, I'VE GOT A PROGRAMMER ON IT, BUT IT LOCKS ME IN TO PREMIUM FUEL, WHICH IS MORE EXPENSIVE. BUT TODAY WE'RE GONNA SHOW YOU A PROGRAMMER THAT ALLOWS YOU TO USE THE LESS EXPENSIVE 87 OCTANE AND STILL GET GREAT PERFORMANCE GAINS.

(RYAN)>> THIS THING FULL YET?

(KEVIN)>> NO!

(RYAN)>> THIS IS THE LAST DOUGHNUT.

(KEVIN)>> THANKS A LOT.

(RYAN)>> THERE'S SOME HEALTH FOOD INSIDE OR SOMETHING.

(KEVIN)>> I'LL GO GET SOME GRANOLA.

(RYAN)>> NOW YOU GUYS KNOW THAT THE THREE POINT FIVE LITER TWIN TURBO VSIX UNDERNEATH THE HOOD OF THESE ECO- BOOST F-150'S GET DECENT FUEL ECONOMY WHILE STILL MAKING A FAIR AMOUNT OF HORSEPOWER AND TORQUE. WELL HYPERTECH'S FIGURED OUT HOW TO IMPROVE ON THAT WITH THEIR LINE OF PROGRAMMERS. THIS IS THEIR MAX ENERGY TUNER. THIS TUNER CAN READ AND CLEAR TROUBLE CODES, RECALIBRATE FOR CHANGES IN TIRE SIZE OR REAR AXLE RATIO. YOU CAN CHANGE WHEN THE COOLING FANS COME ON AND OFF, AND YOU CAN ADJUST THE TOP SPEED LIMITER. AND OF COURSE IT'S INTERNET UPDATABLE. NOW AS FAR AS TUNING OPTIONS GO, WELL YOU CAN TUNE FOR

87 OCTANE OR PREMIUM FUEL. AND ON 87 OCTANE, ON HYPERTECH'S TRUCK ON THEIR DYNO, THEY SHOWED GAINS OF 65 HORSEPOWER AND 58 POUNDS OF TORQUE.

ON THE PREMIUM FUEL SETTING WELL THEY SHOWED GAINS OF 87 HORSEPOWER AND 101 POUNDS OF TORQUE. NOT BAD AT ALL FOR A HALF TON GAS POWERED TRUCK.

SO WE'RE GONNA TAKE THIS THING OVER TO THE HORSEPOWER DYNO AND SEE WHAT IT'LL DO. SO LIKE WE ALWAYS DO, WE STRAPPED THIS THING DOWN TO THE HORSEPOWER DYNO TO GET A BASELINE AVERAGE OF THREE RUNS. WE ENDED UP WITH 312 HORSEPOWER AND 355 POUND FEET OF TORQUE, WHICH IS A PRETTY STRONG SHOWING FOR

A STOCK PICK UP TRUCK. THEN IT WAS TIME TO UPLOAD HYPERTECH'S 87 OCTANE CALIBRATION SO WE CAN MAKE SOME MORE RUNS AND COMPARE IT TO WHAT WE JUST DID USING THE SAME FUEL. NOW THE TUNER DOWNLOADS THE STOCK TUNE AND STORES IT JUST IN CASE YOU EVER NEED TO RETURN THE VEHICLE TO STOCK. THEN IT UPLOADS THE MODIFIED 87 OCTANE TUNE. THE PROCESS IS SIMPLE AND ONLY TAKES A FEW MINUTES, JUST FOLLOW THE PROMPTS.

COOL, LETS TURN SOME ROLLERS. THEN WE MADE THREE MORE RUNS AT WIDE OPEN THROTTLE AND IN DIRECT DRIVE. WHAT WE ENDED UP WITH WAS 326 HORSEPOWER AND ALMOST 359 POUND FEET OF TORQUE.

ALRIGHT WITH THE 87 OCTANE TUNE OUT OF THE WAY LETS PUT SOME 93 IN THIS THING AND SEE WHAT IT'LL DO.

(KEVIN)>> COOL!

(RYAN)>> NOW THIS TIME WE'RE FILLING UP WITH PREMIUM FUEL, AND FOR US THAT MEANS 93 OCTANE. BUT IF YOU LIVE IN AN AREA OF THE COUNTRY WHERE OVER 91 OCTANE IS PREMIUM FUEL, NO BIG DEAL, THIS TUNE WAS BASED OFF OF 91 OCTANE AS THE PREMIUM.

AND WITH THE HIGHER QUALITY FUEL ALONG WITH THE MORE AGGRESSIVE TUNE, WELL WE ENDED UP WITH 332 HORSEPOWER AND 386 POUNDS OF TORQUE, NOT BAD.

(KEVIN)>> WHAT DOES THAT MEAN ON THE ROAD? WELL WE TOOK AN ALREADY SPRY FEELING BRAND NEW PICK UP TRUCK AND MADE IT FEEL VERY, VERY RESPONSIVE.

YOU'D NEVER KNOW THIS WAS A 5,000 POUND PLUS PICK UP ON THE ROAD AS AGILE AS IT WAS. AND WHEN IT CAME TIME TO PASS, YOU FLAT FOOT IT AND IT COMES ON AND KEEPS COMING.

(RYAN)>> SO IT'S GOT GOOD OFF, JUST OFF IDLE THROTTLE CHARACTERISTIC. YOU CAN TELL IT'S IMPROVED OVER FACTORY. TOUCH THE THROTTLE A LITTLE BIT AND IT DOES SOMETHING INSTEAD OF THINKING ABOUT IT.

(KEVIN)>> AND YOU'D NEVER KNOW IT'S TURBO CHARGED CAUSE YOU DON'T HEAR ANY BLOW OFF OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT.

NOW HYPERTECH ELECTED TO KEEP THE FACTORY TORQUE MANAGEMENT STRATEGY MAPPED INTO THE COMPUTER. THIS STILL GIVES YOU THE SUBSTANTIAL POWER GAINS AND THE ABILITY TO EFFORTLESSLY BREAK LOOSE THE REAR WHEELS. BUT AS YOU CAN SEE ON THE SHIFT TO SECOND GEAR, TORQUE

MANAGEMENT KICKS IN AND MAKES SURE THAT YOU'VE GOT A LONG AND HAPPY LIFE WITH YOUR DRIVETRAIN.

(RYAN)>> HEY GUYS, WELCOME BACK. WELL PROJECT ROLLING THUNDER SURVIVED ITS MAIDEN 20 MILE VOYAGE BACK FROM GETTING CUSTOM DYNO TUNED. AND CRUISING DOWN THE INTERSTATE, THE ENGINE WAS RUNNING NICE AND COOL, AND AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS IT WAS ONLY TURNING ABOUT 1,800 RPM. A NICE LITTLE CRUISE UNTIL YOU PUT YOUR FOOT INTO IT.

THEN YOU BETTER BE HOLDING ON TO ITS 550 HORSEPOWER. AND SINCE THIS TRUCK'S JUST ABOUT DONE, WELL WE WANTED TO SHARE WITH YOU THE FINAL STATS ON THIS MONSTER. WE BUILT THIS TRUCK AROUND A FOUR POINT SIX LITER DUAL OVERHEAD CAM ALUMINATOR ENGINE. THAT'S FED BY A TWO POINT THREE LITER SUPERCHARGER STRAPPED TO THE TOP. BEHIND THAT SITS A LIGHTWEIGHT CLUTCH AND FLYWHEEL ASSEMBLY AND A SIX SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION. THE REAR SUSPENSION IS UNIQUE TO SAY THE LEAST. IT'S A BEEFED UP MUSTANG IRS. THE FRONT SUSPENSION WAS DESIGNED ON PERFORMANCE TRENDS SOFTWARE AND THEN APPLIED TO THE TRUCK. TRIPLE ADJUSTABLE COIL OVERS WILL ALLOW US TO DIAL THIS THING IN. SOME 13 INCH ROTORS AND FOUR PISTON CALIPERS UP FRONT OUGHT TO SLOW US DOWN. AND WE ROLL ON SOME THREE PIECE TRUE FORGED WHEELS WRAPPED IN SOME PRETTY STICKY AND PRETTY WIDE BFG GFORCE KDW TIRES. ALL THIS ADDS UP TO JUST UNDER 3,400 POUNDS WITH A LOW CENTER OF GRAVITY AND RESPECTABLE FRONT TO REAR WEIGHT BIAS.

AND FINALLY MOVING THIS THING DOWN THE ROAD IS A THUNDERING 550 HORSES AT THE WHEELS.

(KEVIN)>> NOW AS BAD AS THIS TRUCK IS, BELIEVE IT OR NOT THERE'S ROOM TO PULL MORE POWER OUT OF THIS ENGINE, A LOT MORE. SIMPLE THINGS LIKE A PULLEY SWAP, HECK EVEN A LARGER DISPLACEMENT BLOWER, THROWING MORE TIMING AT IT WITH THE HIGHER OCTANE FUEL. BUT FOR OUR MONEY IT'S FINALLY TIME TO FIND THE APPROPRIATE ROAD COURSE TO REALLY STRETCH THIS PROJECTS LEGS AND FIND OUT WHAT IT'S CAPABLE OF. AND I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU GUYS, BUT AFTER MORE THAN TWO YEARS IN THE MAKING WE THINK PROJECT ROLLING THUNDER IS READY, AND SO ARE WE.

(RYAN)>> NOW IF YOU'RE PUTTING TOGETHER AN LS ENGINE. WELL ARP OR AUTOMOTIVE RACING PRODUCTS HAVE JUST ABOUT EVERY BOLT NEEDED TO GET THE JOB DONE. THIS IS THEIR SMALL BLOCK LS HEX HEAD BOLT KIT, AND

IT REPLACES THE SINGLE USE TORQUE TO YIELD FASTENERS THAT COME INSTALLED FROM THE FACTORY. THESE HIGH QUALITY BOLTS HAVE AN IMPRESSIVE 200,000

PSI TENSILE STRENGTH RATING AND WIDE FLANGES TO HELP DISTRIBUTE THE CLAMPING LOAD. THEY'VE GOT ALL THE DIFFERENT BOLT LENGTHS NECESSARY AND INCLUDE WASHERS AND FASTENER ASSEMBLY LUBE. SO IF YOU'RE REPLACING TORQUE TO YIELD FASTENERS, INVEST IN ARP. NOW IF YOU'VE GOT A LATE MODEL GM TRUCK, WELL THE FACTORY INSTRUMENT CLUSTER HAS WEAK STEPPER MOTORS THAT ARE KNOWN TO CAUSE INACCURATE SPEEDOMETERS. THAT'S THE LAST THING YOU NEED WHEN PASSING THROUGH A SPEED TRAP. THE SOLUTION TO THAT PROBLEM IS A REMANUFACTURED CLUSTER FROM ROCK AUTO DOT COM.

THESE REMANUFACTURED INSTRUMENT CLUSTERS NOT ONLY ADDRESS THE WEAK STEPPER MOTOR ISSUE BY REPLACING THEM WITH STRONGER ONES THAT WON'T FAIL, BUT THEY ALSO TAKE THE TIME TO UPGRADE THE LIGHTING, MAKING YOUR GAUGES EASIER TO SEE. SPEAKING OF WHICH, THESE REMANED CLUSTERS HAVE A NICE CLEAN LENS, NOT THE SCRATCHED UP, HAZY, AND DIRTY LENS THAT'S IN YOUR CURRENT INSTRUMENT CLUSTER. PLUS FOR A PRICE OF LESS THAN $160 BUCKS, WELL IT'LL BE CHEAPER THAN THAT SPEEDING TICKET YOU WON'T GET DUE TO AN INACCURATE SPEEDOMETER. NOW IF YOU NEED CUSTOM BUILT LIGHT WEIGHT ALUMINUM CONTROL ARMS FOR ANYTHING FROM A STREET ROD TO A BUILT JEEP, WELL CHECK OUT WHAT RUSTY'S OFF ROAD HAS TO OFFER. NOW THESE CAN BUILT TO JUST ABOUT ANY LENGTH REQUIRED AND THEY'RE AVAILABLE IN BOTH TWO INCH DIAMETER AND

INCH AND A HALF DIAMETER. THE TWO INCH VERSIONS COME WITH AN INCH AND A QUARTER SHANK ROD END. THE INCH AND A HALVES COME WITH SEVENEIGHTHS ROD ENDS AND THEY BOTH INCLUDE HIGH MISALIGNMENT SPACERS.

NOW THEY'RE DRILLED AND TAPPED FOR LEFT HAND AND RIGHT HAND THREADS ON EITHER END, MAKING ADJUSTMENTS EASY, AND THEIR MACHINED WRENCH FLATS MAKING TIGHTENING DOWN JAM NUTS A PIECE OF CAKE. SO IF YOU NEED SOME LIGHT WEIGHT BUT HIGH STRENGTH CONTROL ARMS CHECK OUT RUSTY'S OFF ROAD. GUYS THANKS FOR WATCHING TRUCKS.

YOU GOT ANY QUESTIONS, CHECK OUT POWERBLOCK TV DOT COM AND WE'LL SEE YOU IN ABOUT A WEEK.
