Best Truck Accessories for Under $100.00

For truck owners who want to upgrade their vehicles on a budget, it can seem like there just aren't that many products out there that don't break the bank. However, there is no shortage of items under $100.00 that can add utility and style to your ride. With the budget builder in mind, here are our top 10 truck accessories that clock in for under a Benjamin.

Carr Hoop Step II

If you need a step between your cab and the ground but you don't have the budget for a full set of running boards or nerf bars, a set of Carr Hoop Step II truck steps makes an excellent alternative. While you could spend over $100.00 on a set of four steps, a pair won't set you back that far, making these a viable choice for work trucks or vehicles that don't often get multiple passengers. Choose from silver, polished aluminum, and black finishes to get the perfect step for your truck. Installation can be done at home with basic hand tools and a drill. If you also need a bed step, Carr still has you covered with its folding hitch step.

AVS Bugflector II Bug Shield

One of the most popular truck accessories that has stood the test of time is the bug shield, and the AVS Bugflector II Bug Shield is perhaps the most popular shield available. The bug shield easily attaches to your truck's hood via clips or automotive-grade 3M tape, making installation simple and free of guesswork. Once installed, the bug shield causes most bugs and other small, lightweight objects to fly over your hood and grille area rather than hitting it. This helps keep your truck clean and protects the paint from damage. Matte-black and chrome versions are also available in the low-profile Aeroskin design.

Gator Rubber Truck Bed Mat

Speaking of protecting your truck's paint from damage, the scuffs and scratches that come from cargo shifting in the bed of your truck can add up over time, devaluing your truck and exposing the bare metal to corrosive elements. One of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to protect your truck bed is with the Gator Rubber Truck Bed Mat. Made of heavy-duty, 5/16” rubber, this mat can absorb dents, dings, and scratches that would otherwise damage your truck bed. The truck bed mat is held in place by rubber cleats, which also facilitate draining water away. Pair it with the Gator Rubber Tailgate Mat for even greater protection.

AVS In-Channel Vent Visor

The advantage of a wind deflector is that it allows you to roll your windows down slightly even during stormy weather, letting you enjoy the fresh air without soaking you or your vehicle's interior. AVS is one of the biggest names in wind deflectors and its In-Channel Vent Visors are durable, resistant to UV rays, and easy to install. These visors are also available with tape-on installation. Looking for something with a little more flair? Get a lot more WOW for a little more cash with the chrome plated visors.

WeatherTech Molded No-Drill Mud Flaps

Whether you actively seek it out or not, if you drive a truck, then it's likely that you'll deal with mud from time to time. Minimize its effect on your truck's paint and body with a set of WeatherTech Molded No-Drill Mud Flaps. The best part about these flaps is right in the name: no drilling is required to install them. The flaps are made of a thermoplastic resin that is corrosion resistant and protected from UV rays. They're sold in pairs and made right here in the USA.

Core Trax Tie Down Track System

While many trucks these days come with cargo management systems such as the Utilitrak, not all trucks are so equipped. If you want the convenience of adjustable cargo management in your truck bed, take a look at the Core Trax Tie Down System. Available in multiple lengths with a black or silver finish, this tie down system has adjustable cargo rings that allow you to secure items in your bed and keep them from shifting while driving. The load locks have a capacity of 500 pounds apiece. Mount them along the sides of your bed, the bottom of your bed, or even on a cargo trailer.

Access Truck Bed Accessory Smart Pack

This pack of truck accessories from Access works great as either a standalone upgrade or as a finishing touch to a full truck build. The pack includes a tailgate seal, cargo retrieval tool, and a 12-inch LED bed light. These items synergize well with a tonneau cover, where the seal provides a final layer of protection against dust and the light illuminates the bed when you need to see items in the dark. The light wires to your truck with just power and ground wires.

Core Big Maxx HD Cargo Bar

Adjustable and easy to install, the Core Big Maxx HD Cargo Bar is a no-nonsense truck bed upgrade that keeps your cargo separate and prevents excess movement while driving. The bar is held in place with ratcheting neoprene feet and is made of steel over an inch in diameter. Appropriate even for heavy-duty and work truck use, this cargo bar expands the utility of your bed and organizes your payload.

K&N Washable Cabin Air Filter

One of the most commonly forgotten filters on modern vehicles is the cabin air filter. This filter is a barrier between your interior and pollen, dust, germs, and other irritants. Replace yours with a K&N Washable Cabin Air Filter and you'll never have to buy a new cabin air filter for your truck again. When the filter gets dirty, just wash it and apply K&N refresher spray. Over time, you'll save money and be ready to refresh your vehicle's interior at a moment's notice.

Stampede Smooth Bed Rail Caps

Exposed bed rails can lead to scratches, dents, and other damage if you load items over the side of your bed. To protect your bed rails, equip your truck with a set of Stampede Smooth Bed Rail Caps. ABS construction prevents these caps from warping or corroding over time, so you’ll get years of bed protection at a low price.
