Top 5 Truck Accessories to Upgrade Your Ride

Around here, we are celebrating Truck Month! Auto Accessories and More is part of the Arrow Ford family and Truck Month is all about celebrating the best-selling pickup for 47 years running, the Ford F-series. While we love our Fords, we really LOVE trucks of all kinds!

Your truck is more than just a vehicle; it’s a workhorse, an adventure companion, and an extension of your personality. Whether you use it for hauling cargo, hitting the off-road trails, or cruising around town, there are a variety of accessories that can enhance its functionality, comfort, and style. Here are the top 5 truck accessories to consider adding to your ride:

1. Bed Liner: Protecting your truck bed is essential, especially if you haul cargo regularly. A bed liner safeguards the metal bed from scratches, dents, and rust caused by tools, equipment, and other materials. There are two main types of bed liners: spray-in and drop-in. Spray-in liners offer a more custom fit and a smoother look, while drop-in liners are typically less expensive and easier to install yourself.

2. Tonneau Cover: A tonneau cover keeps your truck bed’s contents secure and protected from the elements. It also improves fuel efficiency by reducing wind drag. Tonneau covers come in various styles, including hard folding, soft folding, retractable, and roll-up. Our truck accessory experts can help you choose the best bed cover option based on our needs, preferences and budget. If you frequently access your truck bed, a folding or retractable cover might be the best option. If you prioritize security and weatherproofing, a hard cover might be a better choice. We carry the top brands of tonneau covers including BAKFlip, Retrax, Rough Country, and more.

3. Assist Steps: Getting into and out of a lifted truck can be challenging, especially for shorter passengers. Assist steps, also known as running boards or side steps, provide a secure and convenient step-up point, making entry and exit easier and safer. They also help to keep the truck’s interior clean by minimizing dirt and mud tracked in from shoes. Assist steps come in various materials like steel, aluminum, and plastic, and they can be chosen to complement the style of your truck. Auto Accessories & More also offers powered running boards that extend for your convenience needed and retract under the vehicle for a sleek look when not in use. Schedule a consultation to discuss step options for your vehicle.

4. WeatherTech Floor Liners: Protecting your truck’s interior from dirt, mud, spills, and wear-and-tear is crucial. WeatherTech floor liners are custom-fit for specific truck models, ensuring a perfect fit and comprehensive coverage. They feature a raised lip and channels that trap liquids and debris, preventing them from reaching the carpeted floor. WeatherTech floor liners are easy to remove and clean, making them a practical and stylish choice for any truck owner.

5. LED Light Bar: If you frequently drive at night or in low-visibility conditions, an LED light bar can significantly improve your visibility and safety. LED light bars are much brighter than traditional halogen lights and use less energy. They come in various sizes and configurations to suit your specific needs. Whether you’re navigating off-road trails or driving on dark country roads, an LED light bar can provide the extra illumination you need.
