Truck Accessories

Recommended Posts

I added a few accessories to my truck recently.  The rainguards are a must in my rainy climate.  Bugsheild for driving to the lake in the early mornings and dusk (when bugs are at their worst). Tinted the front driver/passenger windows for those hot sunny summers. And an A.R.E. Z-Series canopy w/remote lock for storing rods and fishing gear.  I also added a Bedrug, which I'll post pictures of that later.

 

What do you think?  How do you accessorize your truck?

All of it sounds good. When my truck was newer I put bug shields on and a tool box. My truck's so old Ive stopped putting money into fixing anything but the bare necessities.If I could just figure out how to get my seatbelts unstuck that would be enough 🤔

Looks sweet... for a Ford Glenn 😁. My accessories are a little bit more useless than yours. 10" lift, 22x14s, bed liner, Amp electric steps, Blackhawk intake, straight pipes, black bear tune and full 2% tint.

A.R.E.  Z Series Cap

Borla Exhaust

Bed Rug 

WeatherTech Floor liners Front & Back

 

But the best 'investment' by far -  is the Rock Tamer mud flap system.

Really works well to keep the boat from getting pulverized with road debris.

Of course the Lund is a pretty nice "accessory".

Very cool.

 

My old truck with nothing special, but takes gasoline and drives all the same, my Jon Boat, and the few rods I take, with a little extra hands on care, do all the same thing for thousands saved, but whatever makes people happy.

I have had what my wife calls old lady step bars installed to make it easier for her to get in and out the truck. Also had a spray in bed liner done.

The only few things I've added to my 2016 Tahoe LT is Flowmaster 50 series and the GM performance cold air intake.

My main accessory right now looks to be mayflies? Not much left of them but they leave a bright yellow splat on the window and grill.

My truck is a bit anti accessory...no bed liner, no carpets (vinyl), no power windows, no power door locks, no cd/aux/bluetooth - am/fm only. 2013 GMC Sierra WT - everything I need (a bed, tow hitch, 5.3L v8, 4x4, and a back seat) and absolutely nothing I don't need ha. Bought it just over a year ago with 34k miles on it, great truck.

 

Looking into doing a DIY bed liner with UPol Raptor, and I might pick up a used cargo cover off craigslist. Keeping it basic, which the inner car guy in me has a hard time doing!

I hung a sack between the two seats for trash and a Homer Simpson figure hanging from the rear view mirror.

Anyone have seat covers that they can recommend?  I've only done some introductory googling and nothing's grabbing me thus far.

Not sure if you're referring to the cheaper kind like they sale at stores or what. I've used KatzKin before and they are great quality and fit.

Thanks....I'm not sure, either.  I haven't established a budget yet. 

Never heard of KatzKin...thanks...pricey, no?

 

I have a VERY basic Durango with cloth seats.  I've already got a couple burns in the cloth.  So.....I probably won't invest heavily, but I'm averse to going so cheap as to be more trouble than they're worth (fabric bunches up easily, or doesn't fit very well.)

Although I think Dink Whisperer's truck is the definition of perfect, in my personal opinion, my own truck is nothing close to it, lol.  It's what I want, and would love, but not what I need.  I added a toolbox in my bed, as I lost all interior storage under the rear seats, where I used to keep the essentials.  I put in a sound system and needed the storage, so a toolbox was the next best option.  So the sound system is essentially my only upgrade at all, as I only care about my comfort while in the truck.  It's utilitarian, and I don't flinch when I scratch it.  Doesn't mean I don't love my truck, because I certainly do, but I also use it.

Having had both universal fit, and specific fit, I could not recomment covers that are specific to your Year/Make/Model.  The universal fit may look and feel good, but there is no comparison to covers designed to fit your seats perfectly.

They can get pricey if you want. You can customize the color of each section. I did my old trucks interior in 2 tone leather for about $850.

Weather Tec floor liners that I am about to take a picture of and send to them.  The passenger front has curled down in the front edge of the doorside.  Truck came with a bedliner but stuff still slides a lot so I cut and installed rubber horse stall floor liners from Tractor Supply for over the top of the liner.  I got an OEM tonneau cover that is aluminum and folds to the front of the bed or you can open the cover at the back or front both have locks.  I like the toppers but don't want to have to take it off if I haul anything of any height.  Not a big fan of lifts or leveling kits.  Too much chance to throw off driveline angles and towing stability.  Stock rims and tires look good.  I bought the top of the line trim package (High Country) so that I didn't have to add much of anything.

Check out clazzio. I don’t have any first hand experience but evidently they are the best seat “covers”. Katzkin is actually replacement fabric so install is intense and requires special tools and a lot of time . The clazzio goes on top of OEM seats

Do ripped trick worms and bullet casings in the bed count as accessories?
