Bigger is better; and when you're talking about big, high-performance trucks, such as the Ford Super Duty and the GM Heavy Duty pickups, there is little doubt about their ruggedness and off-road capabilities. These heavy-hitters pack a punch, with the Ford Super Duty powered by either the smooth-running Triton V-10 or the 7.3L Power Stroke diesel, boasting 250 peak hp and 505 lb-ft of torque. The Heavy Duty is also powerful, equipped with the Duramax 6.6L turbodiesel with 300 hp and 520 lb-ft of torque or the legendary power of the big-block.
The following list of component and accessory manufacturers highlights companies that would like to help you bring your off-road Ford and GM truck full circle with boosts in performance, protection, and looks.
