K&N (57-3077): 2011-2014 Chevrolet and GMC Duramax

The K&N 57-3077 FIPK air intake system replaces the restrictive factory air filter and air intake housing in specific Chevrolet Silverado 2500/3500 HD and GMC Sierra 2500/3500 HD models with a turbo V8. K&N air intakes are designed to dramatically reduce intake restriction as they smooth and straighten air flow. This allows your engine to inhale a larger amount of air with less effort than the factory air filter assembly. More air means more usable power and acceleration throughout the engine’s RPM range. This air intake comes with a black rubber-topped K&N high-flow air filter and a heat shield that installs into the original air box space. Air is directed through an aerodynamically engineered intake tube into the engine’s turbo inlet for a guaranteed power gain. The tube accommodates the factory mass air sensor and air filter minder. The oversized cone-shaped air filter can be used for up to 100,000 miles before servicing is needed, depending on driving conditions. This air intake is relatively easy to install, usually in 90 minutes or less using existing factory mounting points. The tools needed are a couple of screwdrivers, a ratchet set, and an Allen wrench.

T-Rex Grilles: An American Original

By John M. Arnaud

Southern California–based T-Rex Grilles might be a relative newcomer to Total Truck Centers, but the company has been pumping out cutting-edge grille designs for nearly two decades. With a variety of series to choose from—X-Metal, Torch LED, Graphic, and Billet, to name a few—T-Rex has a style to fit your aesthetic.

Last week Total Truck Centers had T-Rex National Sales Manager Tom Ameduri in the office to share ideas, swap stories, and build a more effective partnership. Tom learned about all the programs we’ve put together to support local jobbers, and we discovered a few things as well. Like when T-Rex says its products are made in America, they really mean it: everything, from materials and labor to manufacturing and shipping boxes, originates domestically. The company is also ramping up production with a faster, more efficient laser cutter.

We love having these meetings because they give us the chance to connect people with people, from warehouse distributors and manufacturers to all of us here at headquarters and our nationwide network of aftermarket jobbers. Thanks for coming out to see us, Tom: without the support of manufacturers like T-Rex, our program wouldn’t be possible!

Putting in Work with Putco

By John M. Arnaud

Known for its broad range of truck and SUV accessories, Putco is a giant in the truck aftermarket industry—and rightly so. From bed rails, grilles, and aesthetic trim to protective finishes and an astonishing selection of premium lighting, Putco has something for just about anyone wanting to set their pickup apart.

That’s why Total Truck Centers was thrilled to have National Sales Manager Scott Majors and Western Regional Sales Manager Desia Anderson in house to talk shop and get a sneak peek at what’s coming down the pike on Putco’s production schedule. (Don’t ask, we can’t tell you…yet!) What we CAN say is that we have Putco down to shoot some In the Garage and AAM University videos next year, so you can look forward to detailed installations as well as some educational series straight from the horse’s mouth.

Many thanks to Scott and Desia for taking the time to come out to see us. Without the support of manufacturers like Putco, our program wouldn’t be possible!
