This Is How You Transform Your Boring Truck

If you love vehicles, you must surely be aware of the fact that the Transformers series has gained mass popularity with its giant robots transforming into vehicles. The good Samaritan Optimus Prime will probably be everybody’s favourite.

With Optimus Prime being a Mack truck that can transform into many different shapes, we are sure you must have wished at some point of your life that your truck could transform too. This is probably not going to happen anytime soon unless you find the Cube or Energon to put life into your otherwise boring truck. But, you can surely improve its usability by adding these accessories to it in the meantime.

Tow Hook and Tie Down
A pickup truck has one job. To carry all the heavy load efficiently. So, to make sure that your pick up truck gets the job done properly, you need all the help you can get. When you are transporting important goods tow hooks and tie down straps can come in handy. Though many vehicles come with accessories, they may not suitable for your work scenarios if you are transporting some serious weight. A cheaper option for you would be to use some rope tie-downs. You can also look for ratchets since they don’t need to be tied down, are versatile and stronger. They also have hooks that you can attach to the truck’s bed frame.

Truck Bed Extender
You can increase your trucks hauling capacity by adding a bed extender to your truck’s tailgate. This will also provide you with additional carrying space that will help you carry heavier loads. The one disadvantage you might face is if the tailgate gets used as a bed extender it will face a lot of abuse as it’s an extension of the truck bed. To be ready for such situations you can always have a spare tailgate ready at your garage as you might have to replace it on certain time periods throughout your truck’s life.

Loading Ramp
Putting up heavy loads without proper tools in your truck’s bed can be risky for your truck and yourself. To put up some heavy loads in your pickup truck like lawnmowers, wheelbarrows and recreational vehicles you can make use of a loading ramp. This will make the process far easier and safer. Since, they can occupy less space you can also store one on your truck bed itself and go around the town.

Heavy duty toolbox
You never know when your truck might fail and leave you stranded on a lonely road. The best way to handle such a situation is to install a wheel nut safety device which keeps your wheel intact for longer durations.

Additionally, regular maintenance of your vehicle is a must. To carry this maintenance you will definitely need some quality tools. So, always have a lockable steel box containing all the necessary tools under your seat or any other storing position you fancy. If you are storing your toolbox outside, it could face corrosion because of constant exposure. To avoid such a situation make sure that your tool box is made up of aluminium and has a powder coated steel finish as such materials offer more security and has less chances of wearing and tearing out.

Winch
If you are involved in the regular transportation of heavy loads, a cable winch will be the best accessory for you. A cable winch is powered by either its own battery or the engine of your pickup truck. If you are looking forward to installing one on your pickup truck better get it done by a professional. A powered winch will come in exceptionally handy if you are pulling out a vehicle stuck in snow or mud. If a powered winch sounds a little out of your budget, you can opt for its cheaper alternative- an unpowered winch with a crank shaft.

Camper Shell or Truck Cap
You might have used a cargo net or a basic tarpaulin to protect the goods you are carrying from extreme weather, but a camper shell or truck cap can do a much better job for you. Getting a large camper shell will transform your truck into a campervan provided you add in some sleeping gear. You can also change the look of your pickup truck by getting a quality truck cap, which transform it into a cool SUV.

Now a good transformation won’t occur overnight and you might have to have to add some more accessories and make some necessary modifications in order to transform your pickup truck and take its performance to next level. We hope that the above mentioned accessories will help you transform your truck and ease up your daily workload.
