44 THE SHOP NOVEMBER 2019 Winches Warn Industries, Clackamas, Oregon, introduces an all-new series of standard- duty truck/SUV Winches. The VR EVO line is the evolution of the VR series of winches and includes IP68 waterproof construction for reliability in all conditions. A new two-in-one remote allows for wireless or corded operation, and a dependable Albright contactor provides added efficiency and durability. A cast-aluminum tie plate gives VR EVO extra strength under load, and the winch's control pack is relocatable, allowing for various mounting configurations. Ford Super Duty Load Support Air Lift Co., Lansing, Michigan, presents its LoadLifter 7500 XL product line that includes applications for 2017-'19 Ford F-250, F-350 and F-450 four-wheel drive models. The company's heaviest-rated load support solution is specifically designed for 3/4- and 1-ton vehicles that tow or haul heavy loads. The system works with the vehicle's suspension to eliminate problems frequently faced when towing or hauling including squat, trailer sway and bottoming out. The 7-inch, double-convoluted-bellows air springs offer 10% more volume than the LoadLifter 5000. Light Bars HELLA, Peachtree City, Georgia, presents the new ValueFit LBX light bar range, designed for daily lighting applications. The bars are available in four configurations: 8-inch with three LEDs; 14-inch with six LEDs, 21-inch with nine LEDs and 27-inch with 12 LEDs. They are all equipped with a die-cast aluminum housing, and the 21- and 27-inch models include two light beam patterns: Driving and Combo (driving and spotlight). They can be used in all- terrain applications including cars, trucks, utility vehicles and sport utility vehicles. 4-Inch Recovery Ring Overland Vehicle Systems, Santa Fe Springs, California, offers a new 4-inch, 41,000-pound Recovery Ring. Lightweight, easy to store and simple to use, the ring works with a soft shackle to replace a conventional pulley block in off-road rigging and recovery situations. It can change the direction of a winch line, provide a mechanical advantage or slow down the winching process. Attached to a recovery point by the soft shackle, the recovery ring becomes a sheave, where a synthetic winch line runs through the groove around the ring's circumference. Tonneau Toolbox BAK Industries, Springfield, Missouri, a Truck Hero company, offers the BAKBox2 tonneau toolbox, designed to work with the company's Revolver and BAKFlip series. The versatile BAKBox2 folds out of the way quickly for full access to the truck bed cargo space and includes a sliding tray for small items. Made in the USA, it features a sturdy, no-drill, clamp-on installation and solid-core, 1/2-inch-thick FRP composite panels. RESTYLING PRODUCTS Film Pattern Software 3M, St. Paul, Minnesota, introduces the 3M Pattern and Solutions Center (PSC), an advanced tool that features more than 500 new paint protection film patterns added in the last 18 months, including approximately 120 full-vehicle patterns. 3M Automotive Films will continue to support improvements to the 12,000-plus paint protection film kits already available in the system, and a review process is built in to engage with installers after they cut and install a pattern. The next phase is the integration of automotive window film patterns.
