After a busy winter and early spring, I have finally found time to install upgrades some on my Dodge Ram! First up was the new Truxedo Deuce 2 tonneau cover http://truxedo.com/deuce/land.php . This is a 2nd generation of the Deuce and is a much easier install (15 minutes). Available anywhere truck accessories are sold. The second addition was a Bright Source HID conversion kit http://brightsourcehid.com/store/#all . This is the hottest HID company on the market with vehicle specific kits for Ford, Dodge, and GM, among others. Retailers across Canada are taking inventory of this product and are enjoying selling an HID kit they can have confidence with!
Next up was the installation of the new Hypertech Interceptor for Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep vehicles. The Ram application adds an advertised 33hp and 40 ft/lbs with premium fuel and they are bang on! Completely changes the throttle response and the pulling power is very impressive! After installing this harness, we got a Magnaflow cat-back installed and now the truck drives and sounds like a champ! Very impressed with the sound of the Magnaflow kit (16869).
More to follow.......

Happy New Year from Alliance Sales! 2012 turned out to be a great year and we appreciate all the support from our vendor clients and our valued customers in Western Canada.
A busy spring was taken up with trade shows from Vancouver to Banff along with customer open houses in Kelowna, Edmonton, and Nanaimo. Derrick also debuted his 1949 Chevrolet station wagon in "unfinished" form as part of the Lordco booth at the B.C. Classic & Custom Car Show in Abbotsford, BC in April. In July, the wagon hit the road and was in attendance at various shows for the rest of the summer months. We also attended the Lordco Bridgeview store Grand Opening car show presented by the BC Chevelle Club and offered sales support to the Lordco event trailer at the large Langley Cruise in September. The wagon should be a great help in selling much of our products, especially Surf City Garage! We would like to thank Magnaflow Exhaust Products, Maradyne Fans, Surf City Garage, BBK Performance, Bright Source HID and PRW for their support with this project!
In August, the drag racing bug hit Derrick after 12 years of retirement and he took possession of a 1966 Chevrolet Impala that is an NHRA legal Stock Eliminator car currently running in Q/SA. He hopes to hit the track in the spring and enter the Lordco BC Nationals in June. Also purchased was a second hand enclosed trailer that Derrick will use for sales support at customer open houses and shows through the summer months. We have already outfitted this with BedRug TrailerWare which should be a hit with the car show and drag race crowd!
September kept us busy with PWA in Phoenix and a great trade show in downtown Vancouver. We continued in the Fall with SEMA 2012 in Las Vegas and finished up with a quick trip to Detroit for some training with our newest client, Extang! We are excited to be associated with a great company like Extang and along with our addition of Hypertech in November, we look forward to some great sales growth in 2013 and beyond!
