Repairing Stone Chips

Everyone wants to have a pristine truck, but, unfortunately, keeping a truck looking great is no easy feat. Regular driving, even on well-paved roads, can often lead to stone chips on your truck; stone chips, which occur when rocks fly up, hit your truck, and take a tiny bit of your truck’s paint with them, can show up anywhere on trucks but are most common on the front and sides of trucks. While you might not notice one or two stone chips, several chips or one large chip can be quite noticeable and unattractive. Fortunately, these chips are also relatively easy to fix.
All you really need to do to fix them is to select touch-up paint that matches your truck’s color; matching up paint can be tricky, so give this first step some careful attention. Once you’ve got the right paint, fixing stone chips is just a matter of sanding the damaged area and carefully applying the paint.

Of course, it’s much better to just prevent chips from occurring in the first place, something you can easily do with a good running board. The right running board can protect the sides of your vehicle, while mud flaps can protect the back end. You can find both of these products and many other excellent protective products at Auto Truck Depot.

Choose a Running Board That Will Work All Year!

A running board is a smart feature to add onto your truck, especially if children, elderly passengers, or anyone who is on the shorter side will be driving or riding in your vehicle. Trucks can be quite hard to climb into for people in these categories, but a running board can make entering and exiting your truck easy for everybody. Just make sure you choose one that’s strong and durable and, if you plan on having any larger passengers, consider the weight-holding capacity of different boards as you make your selection.

While almost any board will work during the summer months, be careful that you choose a board that will also serve you well in the winter! To avoid slips and falls, you need to make sure you choose a board with a no-slip surface that provides traction or “grip.” You can find quality boards that will get you and your passengers through the entire year safely at Auto Truck Depot.

Tube Steps are a Great Running Board Product

A running board serves many important purposes for a truck. First and foremost, it simply makes your vehicle look very stylish and modern. It adds sleekness and sophistication to your truck, making it the beauty you’ve always dreamed of owning. These products are also protective, keeping your truck free from the harm that flying stone chips and other debris can inflict. A running board is also helpful at assisting passengers with entry into the vehicle. They are particularly helpful for children, the elderly, or anyone who just happens to be short in stature.

One of our favorite products of this type is tube steps, which are incredibly durable and can stand up to just about anything! They have a masculine (but still trendy!) look to them with their integrated aluminum frame, which can be finished in chrome or black. The steps come in a standard size that will work with just about any truck and, best of all, they are super easy to install. There is no drilling or damage to your vehicle necessary; you can get the whole job done yourself, with no special tools, in just a matter of minutes.

You can find these steps and other similar products at Auto Truck Depot. This store, in fact, has just about every truck related product and accessory you could ever want. So, while you’re seeking out your favorite steps, also be sure to check out the store’s other great offerings. You will find that everything is offered at a lower than average price and that many of the items are discounted even more beyond that. For your truck needs, there is absolutely no better place to shop!

Shopping for a Running Board? Achieve Style with a Silver Running Board

If you own a truck, then you absolutely need to own a running board to go on that truck. These great products are designed to lend a unique style to your truck, but they do more than just look good. They also help to keep your truck’s body safe from stone chips, which can cause expensive and unsightly damage to your prized possession. A running board can also make it easier for passengers to get into and out of your truck. For this reason, they are ideal for drivers who regularly transport children, the elderly, and anyone who just happens to be a little short of stature.

When you shop with Auto Truck Depot, you will quickly find that you have a wide variety of these products to choose from. One of the best, though, especially for those who want to add a little sophisticated style to their vehicles, is the silver running board. This product offers the perfect way to take a truck from a mere pick-up to a classy, elegant automobile.  You might think silver would be too flashy, but it actually tends to blend in with the overall appearance of the truck, rather than detracting from its natural beauty. Plus, you can’t beat that awesome shine that only a silver running board can offer.

While these boards look great with just about any truck, they tend to look especially good on dark, solid colored automobiles. However, you really can make them work with any color. Just give it a try, and you’ll see—the compliments on your truck’s appearance will start to pour in.
