New from Mar-K are hidden tailgate latches specially made for stock Dodge '53-85 Highside Stepside tailgates. These hidden tailgate latches are designed to fit in the tailgate end structure, so that only the knob is visible on the inside of the tailgate. These spring-loaded latches have the unique Mar-K latching system that allows them to stay in the open position for convenience. This latch can also be used in conjunction with Mar-K's tailgate link assemblies that eliminate the original tailgate chains, and provide a smooth custom look to the tailgate area.

Dakota Digital has introduced the PAC-2700 Electric Fan Controller. The PAC-2700 was designed for the ultimate in flexibility, and to be a simple add-on in any application using an electric fan.

Not to mention, the PAC-2700 has the capability to leave the electric fan operating after the engine has been shut down for a user-adjustable time, and it has a full digital LED readout for displaying temperature readings. Included in the kit is a 70-amp relay.
Al's Liner has announced its new acrylic/polyurethane do-it-yourself bed liner coating system. The new liner is a urethane coating that can be sprayed right at home.

Al's provides the ability to apply it as thick, or as thin as you like, with a variety of textures and colors of your choice.

Art Morrison Enterprises and Wilwood Engineering have joined forces to develop a state-of-the-art replacement for the venerable Mustang II front spindle, the Wilwood Pro/AME spindle. There are several important features that set the Wilwood Pro/AME spindle apart from the OEM Mustang II. For starters, the spindle's design has been refined to greatly reduce roll center migration, and it is taller than the original for improved geometry. Another key feature of the Wilwood Pro/AME spindle is that it can accommodate radial mount calipers and brake rotors up to a 14-inch diameter. The new spindle is precision CNC-machined from a high-strength steel forging, and it can be retrofitted to any front suspension currently using Mustang II type components.

The latest creation from The Original California Car Duster Company is a multi-purpose device, the Versa Duster, which features interchangeable elements and a switchable handle position. This new tool is excellent for cleaning vehicle windows from the inside, and also keeping it free from dust. Included is a washable string microfiber pad for general cleaning and dusting; a special microfiber glass cloth bonnet for cleaning windshields, interiors, and windows; and a dusting unit with baked-on wax-treated cotton strands for removing dust. The Versa Duster's handle can be positioned to focus on reach or pressure by simply popping it out, rotating it 180 degrees and snapping it back in. The handle can also be left loose to facilitate glovebox storage. Both the red duster and white microfiber pads are attached to the base with Velcro closures, while the blue microfiber glass cloth bonnet has an elastic band to secure it around the base. All three elements can be cleaned and reused, with the microfiber being machine washable.
