Velvet Ride Shackles

Velvet Ride Shackles, made by BF Goodrich Aerospace, are designed to replace the rear spring shackle, and create a more comfortable, less buck-board feel ride by absorbing some of the harsh bouncing of the stiff heavy duty springs. They basically use a rubber torsion device inside of the shackle.  I bought mine from 4 Wheel […]

Custom Fuel System

Bigger injectors require more fuel. Lots more fuel than what the oem system can put out. And the OEM stuff has many faults, which just makes it that much more appealing to replace the whole darn system! I was planning on doing some work to the truck and I knew it would be laid up […]

Hunting For Horsepower by Alligator Performance

It was a busy Saturday. Trucks were lined up in the vacant lots behind Alligator Performance waiting to get dyno’d. This was Alligator Performance’s first event – and for a small, relatively new company, this was a big event. Alligator Diesel Performance opened their doors in Las Vegas in 2005. In 2009, they moved to […]

Mixing Gasoline with Diesel Caution

At one time information was released suggesting that a small amount of gasoline mixed with diesel fuel for use in cold weather was an acceptable practice. This information was eventually retracted due to conditions that may result from such a mixture. First and foremost is a safety factor. The gasoline fumes from gasoline are very […]

Tired of always finding the weather strip laying on top of the turbocharger in the engine compartment? A bead of silicone rubber RTV in the weatherstrip groove will keep the strip attached and eliminate the fire danger. Red RTV or high strength gray RTV is my favorite for this type of work. Black RTV would […]
