We know that business owners rely on their vehicles as workhorses. Accessories can play a big role in making your job easier. Accessories can help by either adding additional storage, protecting the interior, making entry and exit easier, and so on. There are plenty of pick-up truck accessories available. In this article we will highlight some of the best pick-up truck accessories for your municipal fleet that can make the biggest difference for your operations.
Running Boards and Tailgate Steps
Pick-up trucks usually have very high ground clearance, and this can make getting into and out of these vehicles cumbersome. Adding running boards located just below the doors makes it far more convenient to get into the truck by giving you a small step to climb on before entering. This makes it essential for people who may have difficulty climbing onboard or getting off your pick-up work truck. It’s usually built from an aluminum frame and is very simple to install.
Despite the seemingly large volume of space that pickups have at the back, sometimes you need additional storage that you can place inside the cab and is discreet enough not to get in the way of the passengers. Storage cases are polyurethane tubs that come in all shapes and sizes to fit in almost any nook and cranny available in your vehicle. It helps with organizing small items inside the truck and secures your items from prying eyes. These are also easy to install provided you get the right ones that are made specifically for your truck.
There are many features built into trucks that are designed to make your ride as comfortable as possible. One of the simplest and probably most overlooked of these are the seats. Having the right material on your seats can mean a lot for passengers who have to sit in it for extended period of hours. It also can spell the difference when it comes to protecting the seats from spills, mud, or scratches.
If are inclined to cover the entire bed of your pickup, then there is no better option than to use a tonneau cover. It is a simple vinyl tarp that has an aluminum frame to provide a firm and sturdy cover for the bed. It only takes a few minutes to install and is just as easy to remove.
Floor Liners and Bed Mat
To keep the interior clean and protected from the elements, using floor liners for the interior and a bed mat in the back can save you money in cleaning costs since they can act as a barrier from mud, snow, and dirt and can also protect the original lining from scratches and wear. Installation is a breeze and it is easy to remove for cleaning before reuse.
Tailgate doors are quite heavy, and some models may not provide the means to gently flip the door down. Tailgate assists can be added to slow the descent of the doors when opened. All you need is one attached to the door to help it glide down. It also does not require any drilling to install and does not need any additional adjustments to make it work.
