Monroe Magnum Strut Assemblies Are Designed for Half-Ton Pickups

Nov. 1, 2018

Tenneco Inc. has designed a ride control product specifically for half-ton pickup trucks that might play nice on the roads during the week, but on the weekend need some extra stability when pulling a boat, hauling a load of mulch or pushing a snow plow.

The Monroe Magnum loaded strut assemblies will be available in early 2019 in eight skus. Fitments include the 2007-2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, 2006-2018 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD, 2004-2013 Ford F-150 4WD, and 2007-2018 Toyota Tundra. The assemblies will be engineered and assembled in Tenneco's U.S. ride control facilities.

Monroe Magnum loaded strut assemblies feature the components needed to maintain exceptional ride characteristics and durability under a wide range of loads. These include a premium, gas-charged Monroe Magnum strut featuring 10-stage, acceleration-sensitive damping technology (most applications), nitro-carburized piston rod and PTFE-coated bearing; a variable-rate coil spring; OE-style upper strut mount and bearing; enhanced-design dust boot; and jounce bumper.

Each unit is covered by the Monroe brand’s limited lifetime warranty and “Feel the Difference Guarantee” money-back consumer offer.

“Consumers and businesses purchase pickups for their unique versatility,” says Adam Richardson, senior product manager for the Tenneco North America Aftermarket business. “A single truck might be used as a daily driver on weekdays, to haul a boat or other trailer on weekends and then to be fitted with a snow plow for the winter. Monroe Magnum strut assemblies are engineered to provide outstanding control and other positive ride characteristics under each of these uses.”
