Right Width Rack

Flaming River introduces their all-new XL Front Steer Power Rack-and-Pinion designed for wide-framed cars and trucks, eliminating the need for an extender and ensuring that the bellow is never overextended. This is a completely new power rack-and-pinion steering unit, not a remanufactured rack, designed and made in the USA, featuring dramatic engineering and appearance improvements. The new rack is based upon the popular front steer 1974-1978 Mustang II platform, but is now offered in a design that is 4 inches longer, for a total length of 49-inches with a 28½-inch pivot, which is perfect for pickup trucks with a Mustang II–style front end.

This is the only new power rack with more than 6 inches of travel for full turning radius—lock-to-lock, stop to stop. Each rack is pressure-tested and certified (certificate included) and made in the USA.

Mounting Solutions

When you’re building a truck, one of the things you’ll eventually need to address is where the battery will be mounted and how it will be secured. Cobra Automotive offers an easy solution with their universal battery tray measuring 12¾ x 7½ x 8½ inches; it is specifically designed for a Group 24 size battery. Weighing just less than 2½ pounds, it also features a side bracket and a hold-down than can be mounted two ways to accommodate different style battery tops.

The tray is also easily adapted to a variety of applications. It can be hung on a side panel or firewall in the engine bay, or mounted in the trunk, directly to the floor. It’s fabricated from laser-cut, CNC-formed .090-inch–thick aluminum and finished in silver powdercoat for a long-lasting, attractive appearance.
