Lighting Made Easy

It’s very likely that you’ve found yourself in this situation more than a time or two: You’re driving late at night, and you can’t see very well. In an effort to improve your vision, you turn on your brights, which work great. You’re seeing everything clearly…and then a car comes by. You flick off your lights out of courtesy and flick them back on again once the car passes. If you’re like most people, you probably wouldn’t mind flicking your lights on and off if you didn’t have to do it constantly—if cars weren’t approaching every few seconds or minutes.

Well, believe it or not, there’s an easier way to burn your headlights now! SmartBeam recently released its Lighting Assist technology. The special Lighting Assist device is made up of a Gentex Smart Mirror that reacts when it sees a car coming your way; the mirror cues your lights to dim to the appropriate brightness and, once the other vehicle passes, puts your lights back on the setting you’ve selected. All of this happens automatically, without you lifting a finger or taking your eyes off the road!

While you probably already have a wish list of truck accessories, a list that likely includes truck bull bars, stylish seat covers, and everything in between, you’re strongly encouraged to go ahead and add the awesome new Lighting Assist device to your must-have list! #CalgaryTruckBullBars

Driving Around with a Chassis Cab?

Are you currently driving a chassis cab? These cabs are fully mobile vehicles but do not feature a bed. The purpose of the chassis cab is for you, the owner, to attach a specialized bed to it, but not everyone gets around to that right away. If you haven’t yet attached the bed and if you’re actually driving your chassis cab around, it is imperative that you do everything you can do to protect it. Drive slowly and carefully for starters and always obey the rules of the road. Remember, you are not in a big, powerful truck anymore, but in a small cab!

You should also consider adding on safety features to your chassis cab. This might prove difficult if you’re saving up for that bed, but your truck needs it. Truck bull bars are a great thing to consider since they attach to the front of your truck and keep it safer and stronger. Truck bull bars are also attractive and can provide a nice distraction from the fact that you don’t yet have your truck bed, which you should get as soon as possible.

Deer Present a Driving Hazard

When you see them on the side of the road, deer can look cute, gentle, and sweet. Behind that innocent veneer, however, lurks an animal that can do serious damage to your vehicle. Collisions with deer are some of the leading causes of accidents. You don’t have to hit a deer head-on to do damage to your vehicle either. These animals have been known to run right into the side of vehicles unexpectedly. You can protect your truck’s front end from deer by installing truck bull bars. As the name implies, these devices were invented to protect against run-ins with bulls, and if they are strong enough to stand up to bulls, they can certainly stand up to deer!

Don’t rely on your truck bull bars alone though. It’s also important for you to utilize safe, smart driving techniques. In order to do that, however, you have to be informed about deer. You should know, first and foremost, that deer are most active during dawn and dusk. If you can avoid driving, especially in heavily wooded areas, during these times, do it. If not, just make sure that you are extra alert, watchful, and careful during these hours
Part of being careful is not speeding, especially if you are driving through an area known for a hearty deer population. When you travel in such areas, go as slowly as the speed limit allows and slow down even more if you happen to see deer in the area. The slower you are going, the easier it is to stop if a deer happens to run in front of you.
