Top 5 Truck Accessories for 2018
Today’s pickup trucks come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and power under the hood. From the factory, every manufacturer makes an impressive truck. Owners of trucks today have great customizability in their trucks with the many accessories that are available to them today. Here five great accessories for trucks in 2018 that can help make the truck even better for the owner.
Backup camera – a lot of newer trucks are coming stocked from the factory with a backup camera. The camera on the tailgate projects an image onto a screen inside the cab of the truck, showing a view of what is behind the truck when it is in reverse. Owners of trucks without this feature know how difficult it is to back a truck into a tight spot. Today, many aftermarket backup cameras are available to help truck owners back their trucks in a safer manner.
Tonneau cover – this item helps give truck owners a versatile mix between having an open bed of the truck and a full cap over the bed. If a truck owner has cargo in the rear to protect from the elements, the tonneau cover will help keep wind and rain out of the rear. When the truck would be needed for a larger load in the rear, tonneau covers either fold/roll up or can be removed easily to accommodate for the larger load. Truck manufacturers now make custom tonneau covers for their trucks and aftermarket covers can also be purchased in a variety of materials.
Spray-in bedliner – the rear box of a truck gets put through quite a bit of punishment from owners that haul a lot of items in the rear. Over time, the bed of the box can become scratched, dinged, dented and rusted due to the punishment it gets put through. A spray-in bedliner can be installed easily and is a permanent fixture in the bed of the truck. The bedliner absorbs all the wear that the box would normally take. A spray-in liner also has the added benefit of not allowing debris like dirt or rocks to get below the surface like a drop in liner does.
Locking toolbox – this can provide the truck owner plenty of security for any items that may be normally left unlocked in the rear of the truck. They are ideal for the working man as they have the ability to store a great deal of items in the back of the truck all while being able to securely lock from intrusion. The toolboxes for the rear can be purchased with many storage options on the inside and they also can come with the ability to move on tracks toward the rear of the truck for easier accessibility.
Bed Lights – last, these lights bring life to the rear of the truck at night. Aftermarket LED lights that tap into the electrical system of the truck make finding items in the rear of the truck at night a breeze. As well, they work great for trucks that have a cap or tonneau cover.
