Put the Clamp Down on Your Cummins

Centerforce releases the 1,700 lb/ft-rated Diesel Twin clutch for 2005.5-2013 Cummins-equipped Rams.

The Cummins ISB straight-6 diesel engines are legendary for their reliability, tuneability, and overall power potential. In recent years, this workhorse has been boosted from nearly 600 lb-ft of torque to over 850 lb-ft. Simple tunes can net increases of over 250 lb-ft of torque. With increased power levels, the stock clutch quickly becomes inadequate for even basic driving, leading many enthusiasts to install an aftermarket clutch system — which historically results in drivability compromises. Centerforce developed the Diesel Twin clutch kit to eliminate common compromises such as stiff pedal feel, rough engagement and annoying noise.The Centerforce Diesel Twin uses two sprung hub discs with a patented floater design that uses spring-loaded bushings to absorb typical “floater rattle.” The floater is drilled and slotted like a brake rotor to dissipate heat. This configuration helps to retain stock-like drivability.

vendor.2015.curt-manufacturing.trutrack-hitch.jpg
CURT Manufacturing, LLC., a leading manufacturer and marketer of premium towing products, has introduced a revolutionary new product into its weight distribution lineup, the TruTrack™. This weight distribution system is an advanced form of the trunnion bar weight distribution hitch, combining precise load equalization and active sway control to deliver the smoothest, safest ride possible. It accomplishes this using three key components: adjustable support brackets, a spring & cam system and interlocking head tilt adjustment.First, the TruTrack™ connects to the trailer frame using a pair of trunnion-style spring bars and heavy-duty, adjustable support brackets. These support brackets are set at fixed positions by the user and hold the spring bars in place, laterally and vertically. While regular spring bars angle from side to side as the trailer rounds a corner or shifts from a crosswind, the active sway control arms resist this movement, keeping the trailer aligned with the tow vehicle and stopping trailer sway before it starts.
