Max Energy for Towing Use

Help is on the way for diesel drivers. Hypertech, the worldwide leader in performance tuning for computer-controlled vehicles, has developed the Max Energy Programmer for popular late-model trucks and SUVs with both diesel and gasoline engines.

Towing Performance

Towing performance is all about being strong and smart. It doesn't necessarily mean having the most power - because power doesn't equal performance. The most powerful engine and drivetrain combinations have no business on a dedicated towing rig, which needs to be strong, consistent and reliable.

Gas Savings, Save Money At The Pump!

As truck enthusiasts, convincing any of us to run out and buy some compact, fuel-efficient hybrid is just unrealistic. But, there are some things you can do to fight back at the pump (and gain a few extra horsepower on the way). Interested? We thought so.

Off Road Survival Guide

Now, we’re not suggesting that you go hardcore rock-crawling your first time out; but a quick romp through the hills and mud can be enough to get your adrenaline pumping in a major way. I mean honestly, what could be more fun than flying through the hills at full- throttle, goin’ sideways around corners and throwin’ mud all over the guys behind you?

How can I start saving gas?
Your engine creates power by burning fuel. The amount of fuel your engine burns is directly connected to your vehicle's accelerator, and how you use it has a major impact on gas mileage.

Fast acceleration and speeding use more fuel than consistent, conservative driving. Anticipating traffic patterns, maintaining suggested speed limits (including the use of cruise control) and going easy on the throttle on acceleration improve mileage instantly. Log your mileage, adjust your driving and check the results; you might be pleasantly surprised.

 I want to put a grille on my truck. Are bolt over or cut out grilles better?
That's a personal choice depending on what you're looking for. Bolt over grille inserts are easy to install and look good; however, you will see some of the factory shell through the openings of the insert. With a cut-out grille, you get a cleaner more custom look. The grille shell must be removed and the center cut out. The new insert then replaces the factory center. Carriage Works and TRENZ offer both styles so you can choose.
