While a hybrid may save the environment and an economy-class might save your wallet, they remain pretty limited when it comes to the customization often required to suit performance activities. That's where trucks come in. Trucks are built for guys who aren't big on limits. Accommodating a wide range of aftermarket accessories and boasting custom designs, these handy add-ons, like Dodge Ram accessories, Chevy Silverado accessories and Toyota truck accessories, give you the guts to do just about anything (and often streamline your performance to save you some gas on top of it). Here are a few of the most popular add-ons for truck owners looking to break the stock mold.
Tonneau covers provide an attractive and easy way to store and protect your cargo. They come in a variety of styles, including hard and soft top tonneau covers, to suit both your needs and your budget. Between the two, hard-top tonneau covers remain the most popular for their style and durability. They're made from a wide range of materials, including fiberglass that comes either painted or paint-ready to match your truck (as opposed to soft covers which are usually only available in black). Hard-top tonneau covers are much sturdier in construction and are lockable, allowing you to instantly secure your truck bed by turning it into a vault on wheels.
Simply put, nerf bars provide a convenient step up into your cab, making them an attractive upgrade to your exterior while providing safety and functionality at the same time. Supporting weights of up to 300 lbs, they're constructed of heavy-duty aluminum or stainless steel. These materials enable them to easily resist rust, corrosion and oxidation, providing a long life of durable reliability. Plus, oval nerf bars are computer designed to ensure a perfectly-tailored fit to your make, model and year. They come with custom mounting-hardware and install without drilling onto the factory mounting positions already on your rig.
From city driving to off-road trails, anything located on your front end takes serious abuse, especially your grille and truck headlights. Aftermarket headlights are custom designed and bolt on to provide a direct replacement for your stock headlights when they become foggy, cracked or broken. They plug directly into your factory wiring harness, so there's no splicing, soldering or rewiring required. In addition, most headlights come sealed against the weather and have the reliability that comes with DOT approval.
Performance exhaust components, like those produced by Basani exhaust, are engineered to maximize your engine's exhaust flow and provide a smoother conduit for spent gases to escape, allowing the engine to breathe easier for an immediate boost in your horsepower and torque (from 5 - 10 percent for many vehicles). Through parts that include mufflers, headers and specially-bent pipes, these improvements create an overall efficiency that translates to a greater fuel economy and a noticeable savings at the pump—if you don't have too leaded a foot.
Next to your brake pads and rotors, brake lines are one of the major contributors to an effective brake system. Left exposed to the hazards of the roadway, flimsy rubber brake lines can be easily damaged or punctured by rocks, sticks and other debris. To counteract that vulnerability, performance brake lines are crafted from stainless steel, resisting corrosion and abrasion while enhancing pedal-feel and greatly improving the performance of your entire brake system.
Truck accessories, like truck bed covers and exhaust components, take a good thing and simply make it better. Each aftermarket component is designed specifically for your make, model and year, providing a simple installation and guaranteed fit.
