Truck Accessories You Should Be Using
Step bars have a variety of different names, and you may have heard them referred to as nerf bars, truck steps, or step rails. Regardless of which moniker you choose to use, step bars all have one primary purpose: to make climbing into your truck as easy as possible. You may be able to get into your truck without any issues, but your friends and family might not be as comfortable climbing in as you are. Young children, older adults, and those with injuries or disabilities can all benefit from a step bar installation. If you’re worried that a new set of step bars won’t match your truck’s color, don’t be! Step bars come in a variety of styles and colors that make your truck even more aesthetically appealing. We have all the brands you know, and we’re also one of the exclusive dealers of Truck Gear by Line-X. Check it out!
You probably bought your truck because you needed a vehicle that could handle any and every terrain. Maybe you’re an avid hunter who needs to be able to navigate muddy roads easily, or perhaps you love going off-road for beautiful hikes in the summer. If you haul a trailer, you also don’t want rocks and debris from your tires kicking up onto your trailer or to those driving behind you. This is where a mud flap can protect from chipped paint and other forms of damage.
“Tonneau” is a French word that means “tunnel,” and a tonneau cover is designed to provide your truck bed with added security and protection. Have you ever had to make a stop and leave items in your bed unattended? A tonneau cover functions just like a trunk, leaving you free to make as many pit stops as you need to without worrying about your belongings being stolen. Even if you don’t store valuable objects in the back of your truck often, an open bed is vulnerable to damage from the sun, rain, and other weather conditions. It can be expensive to repair and repaint a truck bed, but a tonneau cover will help you maintain your truck bed for the years to come. As an added bonus, you’ll never have to wait for a storm to clear before using your truck to transport something!
Also known as camper shells, box shells, and truck caps, truck canopies are the perfect way to outfit your truck with a functional and efficient storage space that doubles as a camping space. We noted earlier that a tonneau cover functions just like a regular trunk, but many truck owners find that they need more space than a tonneau cover provides. Canopies are generally flush with the top of your truck’s cab, providing you with enough space to move furniture during a storm. Alternatively, you can take your truck up to the mountains for a night of camping without having to worry about buying a tent!
As a truck owner, you’re surely aware of how frequently you have to stop to refuel your vehicle. While it can certainly be an inconvenience to fill up once or twice a week if you live in the city, a lack of fuel can leave you stranded on the side of the road when you need to drive your truck for several hundred miles. Fuel tanks, as you might expect from the name, provide you with varying amounts of extra fuel that are automatically fed into your primary gas tank. Fuel tanks are often designed to be installed in conjunction with other truck accessories like tonneau covers, making them a great combination for those making long trips with a bed full of cargo. With a variety of fuel capacities to choose from, you’ll never have to worry about running out of gas again!
Is your truck’s weight evenly distributed? You’re not alone if you’re not sure. While many truck enthusiasts focus on lifting their trucks, one way to significantly boost your truck’s performance is to make sure that the front and back tires are level, especially when towing or hauling. This will usually require lifting one set of tires without lifting the other, and this is precisely what leveling kits are for. A level truck not only looks great, but it will reduce the wear that your suspension system incurs over time. Leveling kits can also be used to make room for larger tires, making them perfect for those who frequently tow heavy items. We carry a variety of leveling kits here at Trademasters, so get in touch with one of our truck accessory experts to learn more about your leveling kit options!
