The fi ve hottest products as determined by readers of The Buzz Mud fl ap kits, other aftermarket products NEWSTAR has introduced nearly a dozen new prod- ucts to its aftermarket product offering. NEWSTAR says the new parts include straight and angled mud fl ap hanger kits, an EGR module, EGR valve kit, oil fi lter cooler and accelerator pedal with sensor for various International ProStar and LoneStar tractors, an air spring and Y-pipe exhaust for many Pe- terbilt tractors, and an ignition switch for Freightliner Cascadia and M2 Class tractors. ABS for trailers Dayton Parts introduces its Gen2 anti-lock braking system (ABS) for trailer applications. According to Dayton Parts, the Gen2 elec- tronic control unit (ECU) offers exceptional trailer monitor- ing, control and advanced communication activities with the incorporation of an industry-fi rst WiFi access point that sends diagnostics to any mobile device. Gen2 is available as a 2S/1M single-channel system or a 4S/2M multi-channel system to cover a variety of trailer ap- plications. Dayton Parts says the ECU can be used on existing Meritor WABCO ABS platforms and is covered by a three-year warranty. All other Gen2 system components are covered by the Dayton Parts one-year standard aftermarket warranty, the company says. Driver comfort, spray suppression tools Minimizer has expanded its Fast Flaps product line and intro- duced a brand-new truck mattress for over-the-road drivers. The company's Fast Flaps' expansion is a mounting bracket for standard tractors and trailers and was designed to accom- modate Fast Flaps on all major truck and trailer applications. Minimizer says the carbon steel and powder-coated black bracket attaches to a frame using multiple slotted holes com- monly found on most pieces of equipment. Minimizer says the mattress is made using 100 percent natural, organic latex foam. Unlike memory foam, which retains body heat and conforms around your body, Minimizer says latex offers breathability and buoyancy, regulating body temperature during sleep and reacting instantly to sleeping position changes. It is backed with a lifetime guarantee. Mud fl ap aftermarket products Growing electrical, body and cabin product lines Automann has debuted a new crop of electrical switches and expanded its body and cabin components offering. The new switches cover Freightliner, Kenworth, Mack, and Peterbilt applications and complement Automann's existing electrical components offering, the company says. The body and cabin products include fuel tank bands, turn signals, washer fl uid reservoirs, interior cabinet latches and lower cab steps, and cover Freightliner, Kenworth, Mack, and Volvo applications. The company says its distributors can combine these items on orders with other Automann products, with no minimums. Diagnostic combo kit MAHLE Service Solutions introduces its TechPRO Diagnostic Systems VDS Combo Kit. The VDS1000HD provides more than 54,000 heavy and medium-duty fault codes with detailed OEM level component and trailer descriptions. MAHLE says the easy-to-use design allows users to view and print log fi les, obtain fault management information, store and save data, and review total vehicle health status. MAHLE says the VCI1000HD adapter is fully RP1210c and J1939 type 2 compliant; making it simple for technicians to connect with other OE diagnostic software systems.
