NAPA Shopping Guide: Best Truck Accessories For Winter
Whether you are shopping for a loved one this holiday season or hoping to treat yourself after a long year, NAPA Accessories has what truck lovers need! Winter truck accessories are hot items that never go out of style. But aftermarket vehicle upgrades are designed for more than just trendy personalization. Most pickup truck accessories are engineered for protection, safety and lifelong performance. The NAPA truck accessories catalog features trusted, popular brands like BAK, Trident, Coverking, Bestop and WeatherTech.
When it comes to winter accessories for trucks, there is no better protective feature to start with than floormats and liners. If you are searching for heavy-duty floor mats with a universal application to any vehicle, our NAPA experts recommend the Husky Liners Heavy Duty Floor Mats. This line of high-quality floor mats is geared for any budget. The deep ridges and raised edges are guaranteed to trap melting ice, snow and muck dripping off construction boots. The raised perimeter keeps messes in the mat and off your interior surfaces. These mats will not shift or slide, and can be easily trimmed for a perfect fit. Husky Liners can be quickly removed, sprayed clean, and repositioned in a matter of minutes.
If you are shopping for laser-measured liners that are manufactured to pair precisely with your exact make and model, we highly recommend the WeatherTech DigitalFit Floor Liners. Built from High-Density Tri-Extruded (HDTE) material, this all-weather interior accessory combines strength and flexibility. Each set comes in your choice of Black, Cocoa, Gray or Tan. This product is made in the U.S. and backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty. If showing off your team spirit is the goal, you can’t go wrong with a set of Logo Floor Mats. Including a wide range of sports logos and military insignias, this line of vinyl or carpet mats is sure to gain you the traction and attention you want from an interior truck accessory.
A deluxe set of exterior accessories for any vehicle can be an investment. When it comes to truck bed accessories, the choices, styles and brands can seem endless. But, if you delay installing robust exterior truck accessories, you may not be using your powerful vehicle to its full potential or might even be risking your safety!
One of the most common truck exterior accessories is the tonneau cover. A soft-rolling cover is the perfect stylish addition to your pickup, which helps keep rain, snow and harmful UV rays out of your truck bed and off your cargo. A hard-folding or automatically retractable tonneau cover, coupled with a locking tailgate, can deliver the security you need. Don’t just take our word for it. Check out this 2022 product review by AutoGuide.com on The Best Truck Tonneau Covers, which also includes things to consider before making a purchase.
Speaking of keeping items in your truck bed secure and safe, now’s a great time to install a built-in truck toolbox. A standard crossover toolbox, fabricated from solid aluminum, is sealed to prevent water from seeping in. This strong, long-lasting upgrade keeps your tools easily accessible, while protecting your truck bed liner from scratches and dings.
If you are concerned about retaining as much visibility as possible out of your rear window, opt for the Dee Zee Red Label Low Profile Crossover Tool Box. It still generates up to 9.5 cubic feet of storage space, and incorporates lockable paddle handles so all of your tools stay right where you left them. If a toolbox behind your cab isn’t accessible enough, or the contractor in your life requires multiple truck bed toolboxes, our experts recommend our full line of side mount toolboxes.
Personality meets protection with the most visible aftermarket truck accessory: a billet grille. A grille cover creates a barrier against hard ice and broken-apart asphalt that kicks up from roadways, which have deteriorated over a long, grueling winter. A grille also promotes faster warming of your engine in cold weather.
A customized grille is a great display of your truck’s personality. Take a look at the Putco Flaming Inferno Grille, which is made of stainless steel and comes in many finishes and flame colors. This innovative product fits over your factory grille with no need for drilling or cutting. Too much? Take it down a notch, while still displaying a touch exterior, with the T-Rex X-MetalGrille. Available in a chrome finish or a black powder coat, this grille is engineered for a precise fit.
Another simple, DIY exterior upgrade that any truck owner can tackle is adding on mud flaps. Also called mud guards, these winterized features are designed to cover the back of your tires. Mudflaps are great for preventing rocks, mud, sleet and standing water from spraying the sides of your truck and the vehicles behind you. Not only do mud flaps improve visibility and traction, they also keep your paint job in better condition and your undercarriage free of dents. This protection product is typically sold in pairs, and is often made of rubber with optional steel accents.
For many truck owners out on the road, the improvements and replacements performed on their vehicle is never ending, and always exciting. Winter is a great season to shop for truck accessories, from ski and snowboard racks to dynamic light bars. And when you shop on NAPAOnline.com/accessories, all direct shipping to your door is free!
