1. Fatman Bolt-In Front Suspension Kits
Fatman Fabrications proudly announces the newest addition to their line of bolt-in front suspension kits. This kit will cover the ever-popular ’65-79 Ford 1/2-ton pickups. By using Fatman’s industry-exclusive 1/4-inch wall crossmembers as a base and adding in a 3/16-inch wall inner and outer structure, these kits will once again be the strongest on the market. These kits are available hub to hub with Ridetech HQ series coilovers or ShockWaves. They include OE-style brakes in Ford 5-on-4.5 pattern to give you the widest selection of wheels possible. They also include bolt-in engine mounts currently available for the Ford FE and big-block engines with more to follow soon. Options such as Wilwood brakes, OE-style brakes in the factory 5-on-5.5 pattern, drop, or raised spindles and sways bars are available.

AMD’s Wider Tub Bed Floors for the Squarebody Truck
2. AMD’s Wider Tub Bed Floors for the Squarebody Truck
Auto Metal Direct (AMD) is at the forefront of all things GM truck. Their newest development is the new ’73-87 Chevy/GMC bed floor for the shortbed Fleetside truck. But this isn’t just an ordinary bed floor; it will accommodate 4-inch-wider bed floors to go with their very-popular 4-inch-wider wheeltubs. AMD has eliminated the need to fabricate the bed floor to install the wider tubs, so now you can purchase the all-new bed floor and directly bolt in the wider tubs! This saves huge on time and money having to fabricate the floor.

But wait, there’s more. They went one step further on the new bed floors for these ’73-87 GM Squarebody trucks. The new AMD bed floors have a one-piece construction just like the original. Until now, these have been reproduced in the aftermarket as a five-piece bed floor. The area in front and behind the tubs were separate from the center floor. This was not the case from GM, originally it was a one-piece stamping. AMD has reproduced these new parts to GM spec. They feature a one-piece floor stamping and all the braces underneath for an OE-correct bed floor. The 4-inch-wider wheeltubs are sold separately.
