28 THE SHOP JUNE 2019 Diesel Pistons United Engine & Machine, Carson City, Nevada, presents new Dualoy Diesel Pistons. Made from two alloys, an aluminum casting with an iron top ring carrier bonded in, the piston design gives the top ring a much harder surface to operate on. Cast and machined in-house for quality and consistency, the pistons are available for most popular diesel light- and medium-duty truck applications and include a high-strength top ring carrier to improve strength of the top land and resistance to the extreme heat of diesel engines. Jeep TJ Steel Flywheel Centerforce Clutches, Prescott, Arizona, introduces its new High Inertia Billet Steel Flywheel with integrated timing trigger for 4.0-liter I-6-equipped 2005-'06 Jeep Wrangler TJ applications. The new 39-pound billet steel flywheel equates to a 47-percent increase in inertia over the stock flywheel and the extra stored energy helps maintain engine rpm and improve low-speed crawl capability. The precision-balanced flywheel was developed as an easy- to-install replacement to complement both light- and heavy-duty off-road setups while maintaining highway usability. All-Terrain Tires Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels, Stow, Ohio, presents its updated Deegan 38 All-Terrain Tire line, now with nine models featuring the company's new longer, deeper Sidebiters design. The tires boast a larger, open-void tread pattern; proprietary compound; and durable construction designed for today's pickups and SUVs. Silica-reinforced tread compound and siping offer all-weather performance, cut/chip resistance and longevity, while high- tensile, 2-ply body cord provides increased durability with reduced weight and an improved ride. Wire, Hose & Cable Protection Thermo-Tec, Greenwich, Ohio, presents Express Sleeves that offer heat protection for wires, hoses and cables. The easy-to- use sleeves feature a combination high- temperature insulation material and highly reflective Mylar foil construction designed to provide maximum protection from the damaging effects of radiant heat. Simply pull the material apart, wrap the wire, hose or cable, and re-close the sleeving with the simple hook-and-loop system. Made in the USA, the sleeves are available in 1/2-to-1-inch and 1-to-1-1/2-inch diameters in 3-, 12- and 50-foot lengths. New Pourers LIQUI MOLY, Santa Ana, California, introduces new Pourers for Fuel Additives that prevent gasoline additives from going into diesel tanks and diesel additives from going into gasoline tanks. The pourers use a protective mechanism that many car manufacturers now install in their vehicles: a flap on the fuel tank opening that does not open until a pipe of the correct size is inserted. LIQUI MOLY additives now have different pourer diameters for gas or diesel use. The new pourers also work on vehicles without a protection flap on the fuel tank. PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS Ram Cat-Back Exhaust Flowmaster, Santa Rosa, California, a Driven Performance Brand, presents the FlowFX Cat-Back Exhaust System for 2009-'19 Ram 1500 5.7-liter (classic body style) pickups with factory dual rear-exit exhaust. The system is manufactured using 409 stainless steel for trouble-free service and features a 3-inch inlet pipe leading into a single-inlet/dual-outlet FlowFX straight-through muffler. The dual 2.50-inch mandrel-bent tailpipes exit out the factory rear bumper cutouts with large 4.50-inch-diameter black ceramic- coated 304 stainless steel tips.
