Gear Up for Summer - Outdoor Expedition

Now that winter has come and gone, it’s time for fishermen, campers, and many other truck owners to get out of the house and head for the great outdoors. No matter what your reason for visiting the lakes, forests, mountains, and rivers of the USA, these truck upgrades will make sure you get the most out of this year’s outdoor expeditions.

Truck Tents

The average tent suffers from one big design flaw: it’s stuck on the ground. That’s fine if you want to deal with uneven terrain and the company of ants, but for the rest of us, truck tents are a better option. Napier and Rightline offer several such tents that mount over your truck bed and turn your truck into a mobile campsite. Tack on the added comfort of an Airbedz Truck Bed Air Mattress and you’ll find yourself in no great hurry to get home.

Nerf Bars

Getting in and out of your truck easily is a big part of using it as a base of operations for outdoor activities, so a set of nerf bars makes a great upgrade. Wheel-to-wheel bars, such as these N-Fab Nerf Bars, are a particularly good choice as they offer a step not only into your cab, but to the side of your bed as well, allowing you to reach your gear with ease.

Retractable Tonneau Covers

Why retractable tonneau covers? First off, covers such as the RetraxONE and RetraxPRO feature some of the best water resistance around, which is perfect for trucks that will be spending hours outdoors in unpredictable weather. Secondly, the sliding action of a retractable cover makes it easy for anyone to operate, so if you have family members with you, they’ll be able to use the cover with no trouble at all. Lastly, covers like the RetraxPRO XR can be accessorized with Rhino Racks, which are perfect for maximizing your truck’s cargo and gear-hauling capacity.

Bed Liners

Most outdoor hobbies require some kind of gear, whether it’s fishing poles, rifles and shotguns, or general camping supplies. A bed liner offers protection for that gear and the bed of your truck, shielding both from damage that can occur from items shifting around while driving. BedRug offers its namesake Bed Liner, which covers the surface and sides of your bed with a durable carpet-like material that resists dents, dings, and even chemical spills. Not a fan of the carpeted look? Check out the BedTred Ultra with its flat-black appearance reminiscent of traditional spray-in liners.

Extra Storage

Making the most of your available storage space is key to maximizing the amount of gear you can bring on your outdoor expeditions. DU-HA offers its inventive under seat storage units, which mount - you guessed it - underneath your truck’s rear seats to provide organized storage. Tools, rifles, fishing gear, and anything in between stows away with ease. Back in the bed, UnderCover Swing Cases mount in the space behind your wheel wells to provide a secure storage unit for small items. Or just throw some drinks in there. We won’t tell.
