A dog may be a man’s best friend but a pickup truck is his favorite ride. I can look gladly at my high-school days when I showed up in my brand new truck the envy of my classmates clearly visible. What made my truck was not that it was the most expensive or the most powerful, what made my truck special was the special care and attention I had taken to truly make it my own. I accessorized the hell out of my truck to make it absolutely custom made. But what was popular then needn’t necessarily be popular now, so today we’re going to be looking at the best truck accessories in 2019.
Truck Accessories for 2019
1. Running Boards
If there’s been one thing consistent across the ages is that running boards have been a fan classic. Everyone looks a sleek running board on your truck that adds a bit more oomph to the body. Back in the day, we did some pretty stupid things on our running boards that I definitely would not recommend. However, it does have its uses. Makes it so much easier to get in and out of the truck, especially for the ladies, and if you have any ladies around, they’ll definitely appreciate the running board.
2. LED Lights
Led lights are not just a favorite accessory for the truck enthusiast but car lovers in general. There can be two types, internal LED lights and LED lamps that light the way for you even during the darkest nights. Personally, we’ve had a lot of customers come in and have their truck fitted with LED light on the inside to give the interiors a dash of color and some unique flavor. The LED lamps for trucks too are a powerful truck accessory that you should consider installing on your vehicle.
If you have a truck and want to show off its pulling/lifting capabilities than you’ll definitely need a truck winch. They come in a wide variety of weight load capacities from a mere 1000lbs all the way to 12000lbs and higher. Now the kind of winches you’ll need for your truck will depend entirely on the workload you’re looking to set, but in our humble opinion, it’s always better to have a heavy load winch to ensure that you have enough pulling capacity that matches the strength of your truck.
4. Fender Flares
Trucks already have quite an imposing look, however, if you want your truck to really make an impression then how about adding a thick fender flare to give the body a little bit more muscle. Fender flares fit directly above your wheel well and although they may only serve an aesthetic purpose they’re quite popular in North America especially on smaller trucks. If you’ve ever been off-road you’ll also quickly realize that a fender flare can help keep your darling truck nice and clean and you dash up and down the trails.
5. Tailgate Step
Getting in an out the truck bed can be quite troublesome especially if you’re not too tall. A tailgate step, or hitch step as it’s popularly known fixes all those problems. Easy to use, easy to kick away when not needed the tailgate step makes for a perfect accessory for those that need to load and unload their truck quite frequently. When buying one, look for something very sturdy, and with a lot of grips during all weather conditions.
