Summer’s over, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to end. From the ski slopes to the muddy off-road escapes, we love to truck around in any season. But a good time can quickly head south if you’re not equipped with the proper truck accessories. Here you’ll find some of the most popular aftermarket add-ons that truck owners are flocking to like flies on…well, you get the point.
Tonneau covers come in two main varieties: hard top and soft top. Of the two, fiberglass or hard-top tonneau covers are consistently the best seller for their rugged appearance, which can be painted to match your rig, and their ability to lock, making them more secure than their soft-plastic counterparts. The soft-top variety is not without benefits, though. A roll-up tonneau is constructed of a single unit mounted directly behind the cab, housing a retractable fabric or plastic cover. This design allows the cover to roll out and retract completely, something that comes in handy when hauling oversize loads.
Tow hitches, also commonly known as trailer hitches, mount to the chassis of your vehicle and enable you to safely tow campers, boats and a wide selection of other ball-mount-compatible recreational equipment. Trailer hitches are available as either receiver hitches or fixed-drawbar. Of the two, receiver-trailer hitches tend to be more practical as they accept almost any aftermarket accessory, like hitch covers.
No matter what you’re hauling, the bed of your truck can suffer a sizeable amount of damage. These nicks, scratches and dents are completely avoidable simply by tossing down any number of vehicle-specific bed liners, like Ford F150 truck bed liners. Combining the appearance of spray-in liners with the simplicity of something that can be pulled out and hosed off, Ford F150 truck bed liners are constructed of five pieces that connect together in minutes, custom-formed to fit your truck bed’s specific shape and size without obstructing its factory tie-downs.
One of the more costly components on your vehicle is also the one that takes some of the most frequent hits: your grille. Protect your appearance and save yourself hundreds in repair costs with grille guards. Grille guards are crafted from heavy-duty steel tubing and feature a no-drill installation that bolts directly onto your frame. They’re the easiest way to protect your front end from catastrophic damage.
Nerf Bars & Running Boards
Nerf bars and running boards are two of the handiest inventions to accompany the raised cab. Whether you’re in a truck or SUV, nerf bars and running boards provide a convenient step up providing a valuable combination of safety and functionality by supporting up to 300 pounds and 500 pounds of evenly distributed weight, respectively. Each is constructed of heavy-duty aluminum or stainless steel, providing a long life of durable reliability that’s custom-designed to your specific make, model and year. In addition, they include all the necessary mounting-hardware and install without drilling onto the factory mounting position already on your rig.
Whether you’re in the market for Chevy Silverado lift kits, Toyota Tacoma exhaust systems or any of the other thousands of aftermarket truck accessories produced by leading manufacturers that include Putco, Bassani and Extang, you can be sure of one thing: by picking them up online and installing them yourself, you’re saving a ton money compared to what your local dealer would charge.
The aftermarket industry caters to the automotive enthusiast. Chevy accessories and Toyota accessories are just two of the hundreds of vehicle-specific brands that enable you to boost power, performance and appearance, easily and affordably.
