You love your off-road truck. You appreciate it for its dependability, durability, practicality and fun-factor. Still, you may find over time you want to add aftermarket features either to enhance its looks, increase its functionality or improve its performance. When adding accessories or technical upgrades, you can go as far as your funds or needs allow: options are plentiful. From the ground up, the following three aftermarket improvements will add value and give new life to your pickup.
Rims and Tire Combinations
Heavy duty does not have to mean leaden. The unsprung mass of wheels and tires is one of the more performance sapping features that can be easily improved. If your truck is riding on heavy steal-rimmed wheels and aggressive deep-tread tires, swap them out for light, yet strong alloy rims and tires with shallower studs – if your driving terrain allows. Don’t go overboard on reducing tire bite if you drive extreme trails that might prove too challenging for them.
Lift kits, or leveling kits, can be a cost-effective upgrade that provides functional and subtle visual appeal. These kits fit on top of springs, shocks and struts, functioning to create level symmetry between the front and rear while adding a bit more ground clearance. As a bonus, when you add those new tires and rims you can choose a slightly larger size.
An approaching truck either sends a visual message to the viewer, or it blends into the background. Make your front end stand out by adding statement front-end protection from bumpers Amarillo TX. Aftermarket bumpers can be far more elaborate than stock; you can include grill and bar components as part of the new look. They not only look fierce and elaborate, but they offer substantial reinforcement.
For a minor outlay, you can easily enhance your truck’s appearance. The benefit to choosing these few upgrades is that they not only look good, but provide practical benefits as well.
