-Advertisement-

WHY YOU WANT IT:
Titan’s new 55-gallon fuel tank for Ram trucks equipped with a Cummins mill will help those vehicles to a 27-gallon increase in fuel capacity. This almost doubles the stock tank’s fuel load of 28 gallons, nearly doubling the distance that can be driven between fuel stops. The extra heavy-duty, military-grade tank is manufactured with cross-linked polyethylene, a material that makes Titan tanks very tough, while also being rust and corrosion free.

The tank is loaded with additional features such an exclusive low-fuel trap design, galvanized steel mounting straps, roll-over safety vent valves and shock-absorbing mounting bushings. The tank is offered with a custom-molded shield formed to the bottom of the tank, which is recommended for trucks that are used off-road. This extra-large replacement fuel tank fits  2013 through 2015 Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 crew cab, long bed diesel pickup trucks.

Cetane Boost For Large Fuel Loads

Cool Your Exhaust

WHAT IT IS:
Muffler Heat Shield

WHY YOU WANT IT:
DEI now offers a muffler heat shield kit for your truck. The heat from a diesel engine can be many times greater than that produced by any hot rod and muscle car. This heat can be transferred down the exhaust pipes to your mufflers. From there, it’s often concentrated and transmitted to the cabin and/or bed of your rig. This can make your interior uncomfortable and cook your cooler in the bed of your truck.
DEI’s New Muffler Shield Kit is constructed of 10-mil dimpled aluminum with a 1/8-inch needle glass insulator. The result is a clean-looking shield that greatly reduces radiant heat, resulting in a cooler cabin interior. The same can be said for any covered bed space. This is protection from the extreme heat of your exhaust.

Runaway Preventer

WHAT IT IS:
Emergency Engine Shutdown

WHY YOU WANT IT:
BD Diesel Performance now offers positive air shutdown kits for Ford Power Stroke and Duramax diesel-powered rigs. Originally introduced for use on the Dodge Ram Cummins-powered trucks, as well as for use in the oil and gas industry, the BD positive air shutdown kits are now becoming a common safety device in diesel drag racing and dyno competitions where a stuck nitrous solenoid can have disastrous results.

As most diesel enthusiasts know, a diesel engine requires only fuel and air to run. Loose flammable vapors that are common in oil and gas trades can cause engine run-on after being keyed off. The same can happen with a stuck nitrous valve when making big power at the track or on the rollers. BD’s positive air shutdown kits solve this issue for all diesel owners, at work or at play.

Hot Fuel

WHAT IT IS:
Dieselsite Fuel Heater

WHY YOU WANT IT:
Diesel fuel is subject to waxing or gelling at lower temperatures. This is the transition of your diesel fuel from a liquid to a solid. Of course, this doesn’t make for a happy diesel engine. To keep your fuel from gelling next winter, consider installing a diesel fuel heater from Dieselsite. This will reduce and prevent waxing or gelling in cold weather, keeping your rig running strong. Kits are available for 1994-1997 PSD, 1999-2003 7.3L, 2003-2007 6.0L and 2011-2015 6.7L Fords. They will also fit most aftermarket fuel filter/pump setup with a #6 SAE (3/8-inch O-ring) inlet port.

Diesel Van Load Help

WHAT IT IS:
Hellwig Helper Spring For Ram ProMaster

WHY YOU WANT IT:
Owners of the new 2014-15 Ram ProMaster 2500/3500 vans can now increase load capacity. Hellwig offers a helper spring kit that’s said to provide additional load support to Ram ProMaster vans by adding an additional leaf below the factory leaf pack. The added springs provide the additional support when loaded, without the jarring ride when empty.

This is due to the fact that they engage as load is added, more as the vehicle suspension is compressed from added load. Unloaded, they maintain an almost stock ride. The Hellwig kit includes everything necessary to install the product. Never exceed factory GVWR rating for the vehicle. Fits both diesel- and gas-powered 2500 and 3500 ProMaster vans.
