Billet aluminum is AMI’s material of choice, and it’s a versatile metal. It can be finished in an as-machined state, brushed or polished to mimic chrome. AMI specializes in aluminum: they’ve got finishing it down to a science. Spruce up the exterior of your car or truck with fuel doors, replacement door handles, grill and tailgate emblems, short stubby antennas, exhaust tips, and the traditional license plate frames.

Similarly, AMI has replacement knobs for your radio and heater, seat adjusters, shifter and more, whether in polished or brushed aluminum with o-ring accents. Add in a set of billet-style pedals covers, some shiny, self-adhesive dash accents and a billet mirror, and your ride will be complete. All of these accents are either self-adhesive or attach in seconds with a simple setscrew.

One innovative product from AMI that is genuinely useful is their Hang-A-Hitch. It’s the answer to a problem inherent to the receiver hitch: what do you do with the ball mount to your hitch when the trailer isn’t attached. If you keep it with the truck, it has to go in a toolbox, or inside the cab, or simply left to rattle around in the bed. If it’s left with the trailer, it either sits on the ground, or perches on the tongue. In either case, it’s probe to damage or theft. The Hang-A-Hitch provides a bracket to hold the ball mount safely out of the way, whether it’s inside the pickup bed or alongside the tongue, safe and dry. Drilling a second hole in the mount will allow you to lock it to the vehicle and prevent theft or unauthorized usage.

Killer Upgrade To My Tahoe
2007 Chevy Tahoe
| Posted by | (La Quinta, CA)

These are nice heavy aluminum bow-tie emblems. They fit perfectly where the old emblems go, once you remove them. The front one comes off easier but goes on a little trickier, just to reach around to screw the nuts onto the bolts. The rear one comes off harder then it goes on, due to the fact that there is a lot of adhesive holding that old one on. You definitely should use a heat gun on the low setting, and a plastic spatula or knife to pry it off. I used a very small flathead screw driver to carefully get under it and not scratch the paint. Once it's off, make sure you get the outer edge of old adhesive off the vehicle. You'll thank me later, because when you put the new emblem on, there is a gap between the emblem and the surface, and you'll be able to see the messy old adhesive underneath. Use Acetone carefully around the border of old adhesive to get it off. That brings me to my other point; the only thing wrong with the back emblem is the double stick tape it comes with...it's a little to thick, not resulting in a flush mount to the surface. I went to a hardware store and got thinner heavy duty double stick tape to use, now it looks awesome. Overall, great product.

Works Like The Old One
2010 Toyota Prius
| Posted by | (Olathe, KS)

This replacement antenna works at least as good as the original, which broke. It came with several adapters. The one that worked was very long though and I had to use a bolt cutter to trim it to size. Other than that it was easy to install. Even comes with a small section of hose so the pliers doesn't scuff the antenna.

Installation On 2014 Toyota Tundra
2014 Toyota Tundra
| Posted by | (Houston, TX)

Looks great. Every vehicle is different. Installation was very easy, but removal of the old fuel cover for the 2014 Tundra requires removal a whole containment unit, then removal of the cover from that unit, and then the installation of the Billet Fuel Door. It would be nice to know that.

The only way you could mess this job up is to install this product upside down. Two stainless screws are provided to complete the look.

Looks Great!!!
2014 Dodge Ram
| Posted by | (Sebastian, FL)

Product is awesome!!! Quality is great and looks it too!!! Install is tricky and a little more intense if you want it to look perfect as I do. They do not tell you all mods that you might run into. Vary vague. Ease of install for people who have not done this is not that simple. On my 2014 Ram where the factory rubber plugs were at , I had to take a die grinder to grind them flush with the inside lip. Also had to remove on same side existing gas nozzle screw , due to when installed per instructions it created to much of a gap on locking side of it. I had to install a flat flush screw to mount like two that were sent so all three on top of the plate. Also the other side to make flush had to add a couple of washers to each of the long studs before attaching it to the truck to make sure it was even and flush with other side. When installed locking gas cap was to loose . I had to bend lock to make it a tighter fit so it did not flop back and forth while driving. So if you are unfamiliar with having to do modifications it can be frustrating.

Awesome Product

You may need to widen the clips for easier on and off abilities. They come as a very tight fit and taking the clips out could cause hood scrapings.
