Must-have truck accessories 2019

Have you been considering upgrading your pickup with accessories? Or perhaps you’re in the market for a new or pre-owned truck and are looking for ideas of how you can make it feel like your own? We’ve got you covered. There are a variety of great accessories available that will give your truck the functionality and capability you need. That said, we highly recommend these accessories at truck must-haves.

Your pickup truck’s bed is tough, but its painted surface is just as susceptible to scratches and dents as your truck’s exterior is. A spray-in bedliner forms a skid-resistant surface that protects your truck’s bed from rust, offers great traction, is easy to clean and defends against damage. Some trucks offer this as a standard feature, but if you’re doesn’t have it, we highly recommend adding it.

Running Board

Strong running boards that are attached to the truck’s frame provide a sturdy stepping surface. In fact, running boards really make stepping in and out of the truck’s cabin easier and safer. You can even get articulating running boards that move out when the door is opened. No matter which type you choose, we highly recommend adding running boards to your truck.

A Backup Camera

While backup cameras are standard on most new trucks, some older models don’t have the feature. The good news is a backup camera is relatively inexpensive to install. You can also get backup cameras in a variety of different styles, including wireless systems and cameras that direct video feed to the rearview camera.

Bed Lights

Nothing is quite as frustrating as trying to get cargo out of your truck’s bed and not being able to see what you’re doing. This is where bed lights are invaluable. The lights sit in the upper edges of the truck bed for easier loading and unloading.

All-Weather Floor Mats

Keep dirt, dust and grime off your truck’s carpeted floors with quality floor mats. All-weather floor mats do a great job of keeping your truck’s floors clean and protected from mud, water and much more.

Bed Cover

Having your truck’s bed open to the elements can be frustrating, especially when you need to transport important cargo. A bed cover is a great way to protect the contents in your truck’s bed and keep rain, debris and dirt out.
