28 THE SHOP OCTOBER 2021 Tacoma Electronic Locking Differential Eaton, Galesburg, Michigan, introduces an aftermarket ELocker differential for 2016-current Toyota Tacoma models with an 8.9-inch ring gear and 32-spline axle. Designed for drivers who want full control and traction on demand, the ELocker features net-forged gears for strength and durability. Electronic controls provide driver-selectable operation and added reliability. A dash switch lets drivers engage the differential to a 100% locked position and back to an open position. Eaton offers 14 new aftermarket differentials for a variety of late-model vehicles. Performance ATFs Hot Shot's Secret, Mt. Gilead, Ohio, presents two new Multi-Vehicle Automatic Transmission Fluids formulated specifically for severe- duty and race applications. The formulations protect against some of the major causes of transmission failure, including extreme heat, fluid oxidation and a lack of proper lubrication. Both formulas—Severe Duty Blue Diamond +4/D3/M5 and Adrenaline Pro Shift +4—are developed from combined 100% poly-a-olefin (PAO) Group IV and high-quality Group V synthetic oils. Chevy HD Tie Rods BD Diesel Performance, Abbotsford, British Columbia, presents Tie Rod upgrades for 2011-'19 Chevrolet/ GMC Silverado/Sierra 2500HD and 3500HD applications. The thicker- than-factory tie rods reduce flex and have large inner ball joints for reduced wear. Greaseable ball joints come with sintered bearings and allow for better load holding and increased life. Optional Zerk fittings are included for installation. Diesel & Biofuel Additives LSI Chemical, Mt. Gilead, Ohio, introduces four new Diesel Fuel Additives for diesel and biodiesel fuel blends, all exceeding top-tier detergency requirements. Developed with a powerful cetane improver, the new additives can be used for downstream fuel production to restore power and fuel economy while providing long-term protection against corrosion and waxy polymeric deposits. Products include TotalArmorClean450 multifunctional additive, TotalArmor607 wear protection improver, ArcticArmor523 cold flow improver and TotalArmorW7 winter blend. Universal DIN Switch Panel Nitrous Express, Wichita Falls, Texas, presents a Universal DIN Switch Panel, suitable for stripped- down race cars or street cars that are no longer using a radio and want to utilize the empty space. The panel has four switches: Nitrous, Heater, Purge and Opener. The Nitrous and Heater switches use an on/off switch with a red LED to indicate when they are armed. The Purge is a rocker switch, and the Opener is a double-rocker that reverses polarity to open or close your remote bottle opener. Made in the USA, the panel measures 7-3/8-by-2-1/4-inches.
