I am pleased to announce that we have another ExploringNH.com site sponsor. I have been working to get sponsors and partners with companies that cover more than just Jeeps and off-roading. American Trucks is willing to work with ExploringNH.com and in addition have donated some awesome giveaway prizes for the upcoming Anniversary Run.

Please take a minute to welcome our newest site sponsor and shop them first when looking for your truck parts.

One of the most popular topics we, at AmericanTrucks (AT), find Silverado owners searching for includes lighting—specifically, headlights. Second generation Silverado owners take a keen interest in upgrading their headlights due to the lackluster performance of their factory halogen bulbs and stock housings.
To help Silverado owners everywhere remedy their dim factory lighting setup, the writers at AT have compiled their definitive Silverado headlight and upgrade guide. Equipped with detailed information, imagery, and video on bulbs and housings, AT’s Silverado lighting guide gives bowtie fans the info needed to improve their truck’s nighttime visibility.

Crazy to think we've almost hit the $100k mark with our college scholarships program. Just last week the team at Turn5 - the parent company to AmericanMuscle.com (http://americanmuscle.com/), AmericanTrucks.com (http://americantrucks.com/) & ExtremeTerrain.com (http://extremeterrain.com/) - selected another 5 students to receive Spring 2020 academic awards. It's nationwide - Connecticut to Washington state this time - and it is supporting students striving to be our next great automotive designers, tradespeople and stewards of off-roading recreation.
As you may remember from previous news releases on this topic, we have been supporting college students for 6 years with these scholarships. Ultimately, giving back to students pursuing dreams in the automotive, and other relevant industries (land management for Jeeps on ExtremeTerrain, and the trades for AmericanTrucks) is the perfect way for our company to support the enthusiast community we serve with our auto parts business.

Throttle enhancement can often be a questionable area for truck owners. Often times, our customers ask us "how is this different than a tuner?" or "will a throttle enhancement device give me more power?"

For this reason, the writers at AmericanTrucks (AT) have compiled their definitive guide to everything you need to know about Chevy Silverado throttle enhancement devices in their handy technical guide. The guide includes what these devices are, how they work, and why you may need one, as well a newly added review and install video!
