The Best Accessories for Your Truck

There are many excellent advantages to owning a truck. One of them is the fact that there are so many wonderful truck bed accessories and general truck accessories available today. At Auto Truck Depot, for example, you can find awesome truck bed accessories, including the Access Adarac Truck Bed Rack System for easy storage and transport of items. The fun doesn’t end there, however. There are many other great products available, and it’s all about deciding what you need and are likely to get the most use out of and then choosing quality items that match your needs.

Another excellent item to have, for example, is a grill guard. Not only will it add charm and sophistication to your truck, but it can also offer protection to your vehicle’s front end in the event of a collision. You can also get some great tie-downs to make transporting items easier and safer. These and a host of other awesome items are available at Auto Truck Depot.

Traveling with a Trailer

If you’re about to start driving with a trailer for the first time or even for the first time in a while, it’s important to remember the basics of trailer-towing. To start with, make sure you’ve got a quality trailer and, even more importantly, that you’re using only the best trailer hitches. Cheap, poor quality trailer hitches could cause your trailer to become detached, causing some serious (and dangerous!) problems for you. The last thing you want to do is cause an accident with your trailer or lose all of your possessions when your trailer suddenly comes unhitched.

Also, remember to slow down your speed! You’re carrying extra cargo, and you need to accommodate for it. Be particularly adamant about slowing down when making turns. It’s also wise to give yourself ample stopping space—more than you normally would. If you’re smart and remember that you can’t drive the same way with a trailer as you do without one, all your travels should be happy (and safe!).

Want a Terrific Truck Bed?

TonneauCovers.jpgThere are many wonderful advantages to owning and driving a truck. You’re higher up off the ground, enabling you to see anything and everything, and your truck bed allows you to easily transport cargo and other goods. Truck beds, in fact, are one of the very best things about trucks, but it’s important that you do your part to make your truck bed as terrific as it possibly can be. That includes protecting your truck bed from scratches and dings, which you can easily do with the right tonneau covers. 

Tonneau covers, such as the Access Roll Up Tonneau Cover from Auto Truck Depot, tend to be very affordable and to prove incredibly useful.

You can also do a little truck decorating if you want! Consider adding in some mud flaps that feature a cartoon character you like, a band name, or anything that showcases your personal style. And, of course, keep your truck bed clean and clutter-free, for a neater, more streamlined appearance.

Reasons to Choose a Sprinter Van

So, you’re thinking about purchasing a Sprinter Van? If so, you should know that this is a very wise choice! Sprinter vans are built to last and come with a host of other advantages. To begin with, vans are super-easy to get into and to get out of. Unlike trucks, which usually require some major stepping and maneuvering to climb in and out, vans tend to be low to the ground, making for easier exit and entry without sacrificing space.

Another great feature of Sprinter vans is the amount of people (and items!) they can carry. Vans are big and roomy, and you can easily sit as many as seven or eight people in the average Sprinter van. Plus, there’s plenty of room for cargo, work equipment, and more, all without leaving you feeling cramped. And, as an added bonus, don’t forget the huge line of Sprinter products that you have at your disposal. You can find affordably priced Sprinter products through Auto Truck Depot.

Drive Safely This Winter

Winter is just around the corner and, before you know it, there’s likely going to be snow on the ground and dangerous ice on the roads. To ensure that you brave the snow, ice, and cold successfully, it’s a wise idea to start making plans now to make your vehicle safer and more reliable this winter. Many drivers will choose to invest in snow plows, for example. Snow plows, such as the Snow Pusher from Auto Truck Depot, are a great way to clear a path and get your winter driving started off right, but there are many other options available, such as ice scrapers and tire chains. Plus, there are a few general safety tips to keep in mind as well.

When driving on icy roads, for example, it’s always wise to go slower than usual and to keep an additional amount of space between you and other drivers to account for any accidental sliding. You can brush up on more of the basics by doing some searching online or taking a winter driving course.

Enders-Stevens takes Husky Liners to semifinals in Charlotte

Enders-Stevens takes Husky Liners 
to semifinals in Charlotte
CONCORD, N.C. (Sept. 15) - Erica Enders-Stevens and her Husky Liners Pro Stock team made some gains at the Carlyle Tools NHRA Carolina Nationals on Sunday at zMax Dragway.

Enders-Stevens moved up one spot in the Pro Stock points standings to eighth with a semifinal finish in the first race of the Countdown to the Championship, and she also gained ground on several drivers still in front of her in the points.

"We've always got to look at the positives," Enders-Stevens said. "At this moment we're the underdog, and we've got some fighting to do to get this car up to the performance level of the rest of the pack. Being back in the car and getting seat time is only going to make it better, and I know that."

Sunday's performance was truly a team effort, as Enders-Stevens and her Cagnazzi Racing team were both on top of their game. She overpowered one opponent and then won another round on a holeshot.  

"Today was a good start to the Countdown," Enders-Stevens said. "A semifinal finish is nothing to be ashamed of. There are a lot of guys who would have traded spots with us today."

Enders-Stevens moved within 10 points of seventh place and is 109 points - a little more than five rounds - behind leader Mike Edwards.

"I'm glad to have made up some ground on a couple of the guys ahead of me," Enders-Stevens said. "The good news is in three days we go to Dallas. We'll get another shot at it and we'll keep fighting."

Enders-Stevens kicked off her return to full-time Pro Stock competition with a win over Rodger Brogdon. Her pass was 6.578 seconds at 210.28 mph to defeat Brogdon's 6.626 at 208.71 mph.

That matched her up against defending Pro Stock champion Allen Johnson, and though her good friend was quicker, Enders-Stevens scored the victory. The difference was her .029-second reaction time that gave her a .031-second advantage. That was enough to overcome Johnson's pass of 6.567 seconds at 211.16 mph, which was slightly quicker than her run of 6.586 seconds at 209.36 mph.

"That was nice," Enders-Stevens said. "I came back and had a meeting with Dave (Connolly, her crew chief alongside Tommy Utt) and went over some things with the car. I'm always up on the wheel, but that was an important round for our team. I love Brutus (Johnson) and he's my best friend out here, but when the helmets go on, I'm ready to rip his throat out. That's the mindset I took, and he left the door open for us.

"She then faced No. 1 qualifier Jason Line, who led the whole race with a run of 6.579 seconds at 210.73 mph, beating Enders-Stevens' 6.597 at 210.05 mph.Next up for Enders-Stevens and the Husky Liners team is the AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals next weekend in Dallas.

Your Guide to an Accessible Vehicle

If you or someone you love has recently developed some kind of handicap or a mobility issue, you might think that your truck is too big and too hard to get into to be of use any longer. Depending on the handicap or other issue, however, that’s not necessarily true. There are a handful of things you can do to make your truck more accessible for all passengers. If passengers have a difficult time getting into or out of the vehicle because of their limitations, for example, there are many different running boards on the market that can make entry and exit safer and easier.

Your options don’t end with running boards, however. No, there are many other wonderful products you can look into, such as wheelchair lifts, hand controls for easier driving, and so much more. You can find many of these types of items at Auto Truck Depot.

Keep Your Vehicle Clean and Pristine

Your vehicle should be something that you take pride in, something that you feel good driving and showing off to everyone you pass. It’s hard to feel good about a vehicle that’s dirty on the inside and marred with scratches and dings on the outside, however. That’s why it’s a good idea to take steps to keep your vehicle looking its very best. One great thing you can do to keep dirt off your vehicle and to keep debris from flinging up and dinging its backside is to install mud flaps. You can get mud flaps through Auto Truck Depot; in fact, the seller offers the Dually Mud Flap, which is one of the best products around.

Another simple tip is to avoid eating in your vehicle, and to hold everyone who rides in it to the same standards. Not only will this keep your vehicle’s interior free from stains and splotches, but it will also keep all those candy bar wrappers and fast food containers away, leaving you with a vehicle you can be proud of.

Drive Safely by Utilizing Your Vehicle’s Lighting Correctly

Think back to when you first learned to drive. If you’re like most people, you were probably a young teen, and an instructor or parent likely taught you all the basics before letting you climb behind the wheel of the car. Hopefully, these basics included how to properly use a vehicle’s lights.  If it’s been a while since you were a driving student, however, you might have forgotten a few of those basic rules, and it’s never a bad idea to brush up on them.

D2 LED Light Wide at
For starters, you’ll want to make sure that your vehicle has ample lighting, including all of the required lights. And, of course, you’ll want to make sure that all of those lights are in good working order. If you regularly drive off-road or are still having trouble seeing, it may be a good idea to think about adding in little extras, such as light bars. You can find light bars and other wonderful lighting accessories at Auto Truck Depot.
