Look at the market, you will see that there are plenty of ways to customize a pickup truck. But what should you change to really feel that upgrade? Individual parts can make a difference in multiple ways while some target one specific area. Yet others are the small change that can make a big impact.
Here are some of the five custom truck parts we think will definitely improve the quality of your ride.
1.Grille & Guard
The most stylish custom truck parts are those that make your ride stand out from the sea of mundane designs. Custom grilles can up your trucks cool factor instantly. Choose from basic structures like bars, mesh, and punch billet grilles that are classics. Or, let your imagination go wild with elaborate, rare designs that can even include lights.
Grille guards, on the other hand, are stylish but also useful in mitigating risk, especially when it comes to off-roading. Besides shielding you with an extra layer of protection, it can also save you from terrible parallel parkers while driving around the city.
2.We Love an Aggressive Exhaust
Most stock exhaust setups are meant to keep the noise down, and they accomplish that spectacularly. But often that noise dampening comes at the cost of fuel efficiency. Here’s the strange bit though – a substantial percentage of truck owners don’t care about the loud noise.
Now you can reduce turbulence and backpressure while improving power with a new cat-back exhaust system. High-performance cat-back systems have less bends, free-flowing mufflers and wider pipes to make your truck more powerful and fuel-efficient. Get all the thundering aggression and more thrust in one easy change.
3.Bright as Daylight
Truck lighting now includes options for halogen, LED, and HID variations. The market is flooded with kits that offer various specific solutions like more powerful main lights, added bolt-on lights that you can attach anywhere and more.
Never underestimate the value of having the best lighting. Why? Because improved visibility in front of you, behind you and even of the back of the truck, is invaluable. Not to mention seeing behind you while backing up.
4.Improve Your Truck’s Air Intake
Your engine, irrespective of gas or diesel uses clean air to burn gasoline or diesel to power your engine. If there isn’t any proper airflow, both your trucks performance and fuel economy will take a hit. Installing a new cold air intake system can be done quickly and easily. All you need is a few hand tools and a little time.
5.Getting the Coating Right
Scrapes and scratches, bumps and bruises are all part and parcel of owning a truck. A rubbery coating, though, can help protect against impact and corrosion. Easy to apply, mix it and spray it on. It can also give you a better grip on your truck bed. Pick one that you can use to keep up your truck.
