Running Boards Help Children, the Elderly, and More!

Running boards are a wonderful and very useful addition to any truck. They are especially great for the truck owner who has small children. If this includes you, then you probably already know that it’s difficult for children to get in and out of your truck. After all, trucks are large and well off the ground in most cases, and that’s quite a big leap to make for little feet and legs! If you’re tired of hoisting your kids into the truck, then running boards are for you! They provide a secure and easy step that allows your children (and their friends!) to step right up into your truck with ease. The same goes for the elderly and for people who are just generally small in stature.

Of course, that’s not all these boards are useful for. Many of the models currently available have rubber step plates, which provide a great, no-slip surface, perfect for safety in winter weather. Plus, they just plain look great, which adds to your truck’s beauty and style! Since there are so many different boards to choose from, you can achieve the exact look that you are going for with ease.

If style is your thing, then we recommend the FX stainless steel model. Not only is it made of the most high quality materials possible, but it also looks absolutely great on any truck! It certainly isn’t lacking in performance either. It gets the job done right, but without having to sacrifice a great looking truck. It’s also much more affordable than you might think and is readily available, along with many other great models, through Auto Truck Depot.

What Can You Use a Truck Box For?

Image 1
Most everyone has seen a truck box or two in his or her day. You may look at these products and think that you couldn’t possibly need one. Most people think of them as only being for tools or other items that those who work outdoors would need. The truth is, however, that a truck box is useful for just about anyone—and anything! While you certainly can use your box to hold tools and other important equipment, it’s also a quick and easy way to store items that need protection, whether from the elements or from sticky fingers that might be tempted to take your items when you leave your truck unattended.

Since these boxes come in a wide array of sizes and styles, absolutely anyone really can use them! Whether you want to cart fishing poles down to the lake or just throw in your wallet from time to time, these boxes will come in handy so much more than you realized! Since most current models lock, they are much more secure than hiding items under a truck seat or sticking them in the glove compartment.

While you are encouraged to browse through the many models available at Auto Truck Depot, one in particular seems to stand out above the rest. That’s the Flush Mount Truck Box, and it’s easy to see why people love this model! It has angled bottoms that allow it to work with sloped bed walls and wheel walls, as well as an offset lid for opening without back wall interference. You can choose from different finishes too, so that you get the exact look and style you want!

If you don’t have a lot of money to toss around, then you need to exercise caution and to choose only the very best, most long lasting, and most necessary truck bed accessories.

There are Many Truck Canopies to Choose from at Auto Truck Depot

Many auto supply and accessory stores out there only offer you a few truck canopies to choose from. At Auto Truck Depot, however, you can choose from a very wide range of truck canopies, allowing you to find the perfect canopy to meet your needs. Right now, if you browse through the store, you can find canopies made from fiberglass, steel, plastic, leather, and even synthetic leather. While soft covers are a good choice if you want to save money, harder covers are better for keeping expensive or important cargo safe from all of the elements.

One canopy that comes highly recommended is the Snugtop Super Sport Truck Cap. Much more affordable than many similar products on the market, the Snugtop is a sleek and sophisticated little model that keeps your cargo safe while also keeping your truck’s beautiful lines intact and visible. This canopy even features tinted windows for privacy and additional security. The high quality locking systems and the canopy’s easy removability are other big pluses of this model.

You can decide which canopy out of all the many choices available is the right one for you by thinking about what you plan to haul in your truck. If your cargo is going to include items that absolutely have to stay safe and that require that extra bit of protection, then you’ll definitely want to go for a tougher, more durable model. However, you also have to take into account your budget, the size of your truck, and how often you plan to remove the canopy. Obviously, you have a lot of thinking to do, but the Depot makes it easy to find your perfect product match!

Trailer Hitches and More at Auto Truck Depot

Image 1Many people buy trailers to use with their trucks or other vehicles. Lots of times, though, these people forget that trailer hitches are also very necessary! Without these hitches, you can’t properly hook up your trailer, and without the right hitch, you can’t guarantee the safest, smoothest transport possible. This is why we suggest only purchasing your trailer hitches from a reputable seller, like Auto Truck Depot. The store has many hitches available, so you can find the exact product (and the exact price range!) you need. Furthermore, there are lots of wonderful accessories to go along with your new hitch. Some accessories are just designed for a better, more streamlined appearance, while others increase your hauling performance and keep you safer while on the road.

One awesome product available through the store is the weight distribution hitch. Especially useful for carrying larger loads, this special hitch allows for even distribution of weight, for a balanced load and for a smoother ride all around. Whether you choose this particular hitch or a different one, don’t overlook the accessories that are also available. Choose from covers, adaptors, wiring, and so much more—it’s never been easier to find everything you need all in one convenient spot!

Remember, anytime you go on the road without the right hitch and the right accessories to back it up, you are not only risking your safety but the safety of other drivers as well. Furthermore, you run the risk of losing or ruining all of the cargo that you are hauling in your trailer. Protect these expensive items, plus yourself and other drivers by making smart purchases through the Depot.

Enable Safe Stopping with Brake Controllers

Image 1If you drive a large vehicle with a trailer in tow on a regular basis, then you need to be using brake controllers! Stopping when you’re just driving a car or truck is easy, but stopping correctly and fully with a trailer is not. Without brake controllers, everything might not come to a stop at the same time, or your stop could be jerky and rough, instead of smooth, leading to trouble for you and your possessions. Don’t worry though; you can keep such problems at bay by getting the right controller from Auto Truck Depot.

The store is proud to offer a wide range of helpful products, including the Prodigy brake controller RF. This particular product is great for many different reasons. First of all, it is capable of making automatic adjustments, meaning it literally changes itself as you switch terrains, allowing you to enjoy a smooth, easy ride without any work on your part. It has automatic safety checks as well. They routinely check for shorts or other problems in the controller and alert you if they should turn up. This controller is surprisingly affordable too, allowing you to get the protection and enjoyment you deserve while on the road, without spending an arm and a leg.

Of course, if you still find the product is out of your budget or if it’s just not what you had in mind, there are many other controllers you can choose from. The Depot prides itself on having a huge selection with something for every driver and every vehicle. So, take a look around and take your pick; you’re sure to find what you need in no time at all.

Take Care of Your Automobile with Auto Care Service

Red Lamborghini Gallardo, to be used as an icon.

Many car and truck owners don’t just view their automobiles as transportation methods. No, a lot of people truly care about their vehicles and take great pride in them. If you are one of these people, then you could likely benefit greatly from auto care service. Auto care service can apply to any service you have done to your vehicle in order to increase its performance, appearance, or that benefits it in some other way. There are services you can do yourself and services that are left up to the professionals. While you don’t need every service, it is important to practice regular upkeep of your vehicle and to use special services as needed.

One way to get a whole lot of what you need, all in one easy package, is to take advantage of the Auto Spa offered by Auto Truck Depot. For one low price, your vehicle will go through a proven combination of services, all of which are sure to leave it looking and running its very best. The “spa” professionals will go to work on the inside of your vehicle first, adding fabric protection to keep your interior looking great! Then, they’ll work on protecting the paint for a shiny, new outer appearance. The service will end with rust proofing to keep your vehicle free from unsightly and damaging rust, and with undercoating to keep water at bay and to allow for a smoother, more enjoyable ride. When you take your vehicle away from the spa, you’ll wonder if you’re even driving the same vehicle—the difference will be that noticeable and that wonderful!
