No doubt about it, trucks are tough. However, there’s always room for improvement. Depending on how you work your truck, different parts can be bolstered in order to promote even safer use and more efficient functionality.
Boost Your Bed
The bed of your truck usually takes the brunt of the wear and tear, depending on what you use your truck for. Both drop-in bed liners and spray liners are available, to fit your budget and needs. Liners can protect against water, debris, skid marks, dents and chemicals. Some even include useful molded in holding slots and cup holders. It’s also good to keep in mind that a bed liner is much easier to replace than an entire truck.
Guard Your Grille
If you take your truck off-roading or use it for farm work, you could do with some front-end protection. Bull bars and bush guards can be installed to protect your grille, bumper and lights from tall grass, debris or whatever you bump into. They can also provide mounting for additional lights or a winch and tow hooks. A guard can even help protect your vehicle should you hit an animal or get in an accident.
Get a Lift
Installing a lift kit or lifting the suspension of your truck does more than just make it look cool. This addition also allows room for larger tires and gives you a higher clearance. This means that you can drive over obstacles, like railroad tracks or large potholes, without worrying about damaging your vehicle. You probably won’t ever have to worry about a bent rim. Certain tires can allow for better traction and better towing capability, as well.
If you own a truck, you have probably seen the various customizations that can be made, but you may not have known why. Turns out, there’s a reason! Now maybe you’ll consider joining the club.
