Are you getting the most out of your pick-up truck?

You might think that going with the bare minimum matches your style. Especially if you’re more of the rough and tumble type.

But with just a few accessories for pickup trucks, you could not only prolong the life of your truck but make your life a little easier to boot.

Consider These Accessories for Pickup Trucks

While there are so many ways you can juice up your truck, we’ll take a look at six of the more common accessories:

1. Storage/Toolbox

Are you sick of miscellaneous items rolling around in your truck bed?

With a custom-designed storage/toolbox tucked in right near the tailgate, you can keep everything organized and easily accessible. Or you can use it to hold drinks and snacks when tailgating.

It comes with a lock and key to keep everything secure. And you can easily remove it if you need the space.

2. Bed Cover

No pick-up trucks are complete without truck bed covers. And a soft-folding tonneau cover is your best bet.

Opt for one with sturdy construction, lightweight underframe and topped with a dual-coated vinyl tarp. It’ll keep all your belongings safe from the weather, as well as prying eyes.

3. Backup Camera

If you have a newer truck, this may not apply.

But if you have an older model, then you already know how tough it can be to park your pick-up truck. Those inherent rear blind spots are even more challenging when you have a full load.

Backup cameras are available in many shapes and sizes, from simple models all the way to wireless systems that tie directly into your rearview mirror.

4. Contour Floor Liners

When you’re working outdoor jobs, it doesn’t take long for the carpet in your cab to get pretty grimy.

A contoured floor liner will keep your carpet protected and looking good.

Look for one with raised edges to help keep dirt and spills contained within the mat. Plus, those raised edges will keep your feet dry in wet weather.

5. Bed Liner

Sure, your pick-up truck is tough enough to handle whatever you need to haul – whether it’s dirt, plywood or your friend’s furniture.

Even so, you want to keep the bed safe from scratches, dents, and dings. And a bed liner will do just that. Plus, it creates a skid-resistant surface to keep cargo from rolling around.

If you really want to protect your bed from rust, choose a spray-in liner. It doesn’t allow for dirt, water or other debris to collect underneath it.

6. Hitch Step

Do you find it tough some days to climb in and out of the bed of your truck? You’re not alone.

It can be especially cumbersome when you have your hands full.

But a hitch step allows for better footing and a reduced likelihood of injury. Look for one that easily kicks out of the way when it’s not needed, and doesn’t require drilling for installation.

Accessorize Your Pickup Truck

Adding even just one of the above accessories for pickup trucks could make a big difference in how you utilize your truck.

So why not make your life a little easier?
