Mar-K now makes Chevrolet and GMC Stepside tailgates modified with hidden latches and link assemblies. These excellent quality tailgates are GM Licensed Parts-available with or without the script. The latches are inside the tailgate with only the knob visible on the inside. This tailgate is perfect for those who want the traditional tailgate without the chains, which are noisy and sometimes damage the paint finish. The tailgates are made from 16-gauge electro-galvanized steel. Included with the tailgate is a customizing kit to convert stock bed sides to work with the hidden latches and links.

Cut It Out
Race Ready Performance now offers electric exhaust cutouts. Depending on the vehicle's exhaust system, Race Ready Performances' kits come complete with one or two cutouts, wiring harness, switch, installation hardware, and instructions. The cutouts range in size from 21/2 to 5 inches in diameter. Race Ready uses T6061 billet aluminum and 304 stainless steel in the construction of their cutouts. They also offer a lifetime warranty on all cutouts.
"We are so confident in our product that we back it with the RRP Lifetime Warranty," said Steve Garske, owner of Race Ready Performance. "If there's ever a problem with one of our products while the original purchaser owns it, we will replace or repair it. That's anything short of physical damage."
