Truck owners really appreciate and value their vehicles
Clifton, NJ (PRWEB) October 16, 2008
Major online retailer BuyAutoTruckAccessories recently announced their annual list of top truck accessories for protecting pick-up truck finishes based on customer purchases and results.
The list indicates that today's truck owners are investing the time and money to make sure their truck will continue to look good and perform well long after they've purchased it. Rather than neglect upkeep, owners are seemingly willing to spend some extra money to protect a truck's finish and prevent damage such as scratches and dings that would otherwise bring down a truck's resale value.
"Truck owners really appreciate and value their vehicles," explains Marketing Manager Bob Moore. "They love their trucks and want to take care of them. To them, truck accessories like mud flaps and running boards aren't frivolous; they serve a purpose beyond looking great on the vehicle. These items protect a vehicle from potential damage and can add real value to the truck. It's a win-win situation when you add these accessories. Our top five are all good investments."
The top five, according to Moore, include:
1: Running Boards
Buyers can order running boards in hundreds of different styles, including aluminum, stainless steel, anti-slip and diamond plate to name just a few. Running boards are a top seller because they not only make getting into and out of a truck or suv easier, they protect the finish along the sides of the truck from mud, debris and gravel that can chip the finish. Running boards are a versatile accessory, providing safety, good looks and paint protection.
2: Mud Flaps
One of the most inexpensive ways to protect a car or truck from gravel and debris flung up by the tires. One of the first places the paint may chip on a truck is on the lower rear panels if one doesn't invest in mud flaps. Why take this risk when mud flaps are so reasonably priced? These are also a very popular gift item.
3: Bed Liners
This is a higher end but incredibly popular form of truck protection. Bed liners protect the finish in the truck bed from chipping and denting and can even provide some shock absorption. Drop-In Bedliners can even provide insulation and prevent shifting of items in the truck bed during transit.
4: Bug Shields
Everyone knows how damaging to paint finishes insect smears can be. They literally eat away at the finish and can be very difficult to remove. Bugshields reduce the amount of bug splatter on hoods and windshields and deflect debris that may be kicked up by other vehicles, protecting the windshield from potentially expensive cracks. Since these come in all kinds of customized styles with logos and messages, they make great gifts.
5: Grille Guards
Obviously, grille guards are what they sound like and protect the front grille of the truck or sport utility vehicle from damage. They're definitely worth the money if someone backs into the pick-up even once - no crushed headlamp, no damage to the truck's grille. And much less worry knowing that steps were taken to protect the grille from unexpected hazards.
"By investing in these top five protective accessories, a pick-up truck, suv or car owner is ensuring the highest possible resale value for his vehicle," Moore went on to say. "It will pay for the investment many times over, and in the meantime, one can take pride in how terrific his vehicle looks every time he drives it."
