Utility work trucks: Firestone Industrial Products’ newest addition to its product line-up is the Ride-Rite Ford F-150 Raptor Kit. The kit was introduced at the SEMA show in November. SEMA named the Ford F-Series the Hottest Truck at the 2013 show, representing the models that industry experts -- the show exhibitors -- most often feature in their booths as the hottest rides for the enthusiast market.

Firestone’s Ride-Rite Ford F-150 Raptor Kit fits Ford F-150 Raptor models from 2009 ­ 2014. This no-drill kit uses existing holes in the frame for easy installation including an innovative tapered sleeve air spring for maximum travel while maintaining a smoother ride. The Raptor Kit is the newest product in Firestone’s Sport-Rite line. Sport-Rite air springs improve a vehicle’s handling and supports up to 3,000 lbs (not to exceed a vehicle’s GVWR).

This year, Firestone is also showcasing Ride-Rite Air Helper Spring kits for Dodge, Chevy and Ford, along with air accessories including the Air Command Kit for Android and the Compact Remote Air Command Kit with key fob controller.
