Gear Guide 58 | Overdrive | December 2017 Performance enhancer BoostBox H2's patented technology is a fuel cell-based hydro- gen-on-demand system that the manufacturer says can help enhance fuel efficiency, improve emissions, lower maintenance costs and extend engine life. The product uses a small Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel-cell technology that doesn't use chemical additives in the process, which is designed to make the system more reliable while removing hazardous materi- als. The company says the system's rugged design has been test- ed to real-world strict standards required of truck manufacturers around the world, including millions of miles of on-road use for thermal performance (-40 to 55 degrees Celsius) while under shock and vibration, and also has passed the MIL-STD-815 tests for offroad shock of up to 40g. The unit weighs about 40 pounds and measures 17-by-16-by-18 inches. BoostBox H2, boostboxh2.com, 719-582-6678 Flaps for trucks, trailers Minimizer's Fast Flaps, initially available for vocational trucks, now can accommodate all major truck and trailer applications. The Fast Flap Mounting Bracket attaches to the frame, thanks to multiple slotted holes designed to fit most patterns commonly found on trucks and trailers. The bracket is manufactured with carbon steel, and the holes on the bracket arm are predrilled to facilitate quick and easy flap attachment.
