  • UnderCover Swing Case – The space behind a truck’s wheel wells often goes to waste. With an UnderCover Swing Case, this area transforms into the perfect storage space for tools, small cargo, and even drinks & snacks. 

  • BAKFlip MX4 - This hard-folding tonneau cover combines security and versatility with a sleek, matte-black finish. Capable of supporting up to 400 lbs of evenly-distributed weight, this is one of the toughest tonneaus available. 

  • AMP Research Powerstep – Perfect for a lifted truck like Zak’s, the AMP Research Powerstep deploys when the truck’s door is opened, providing 8 to 10 inches of drop. When not in use, they retract under the vehicle, which keeps them from interfering with ground clearance.

  • DECKED Truck Bed Storage System – The ultimate truck bed storage solution, DECKED transforms your bed into a secure vault with two drawers that protect your gear from harsh weather and would-be thieves. Since the DECKED system covers your wheel wells, it also increases your bed’s usable surface area. 

  • Rhino Rack Hitch Mount Bike Rack – Bicycles never sit quite right when you just throw them into your truck bed. This bike mount from Rhino Rack lets you easily transport your two-wheeled toys from the house to the trail while keeping your bed available for larger items. 

  • Ranch Hand Legend Series Grille Guard Bumper – Aftermarket bumpers do more than just protect your truck; they also provide a platform for additional accessories like a winch, LED light bars, shackles, and other recovery gear.

  • Fuel Nitro Wheels with Nitto Ridge Grapplers – If you want your truck to stand out, a set of aftermarket wheels is one of the first upgrades you should make. Nitro Wheels from Fuel are made of durable, rust-resistant cast aluminum, and the classic five-spoke design looks great on any truck. 

  • Bushwacker Pocket Style Fender Flares – Aftermarket wheels are often wider than their OEM counterparts, which leads to partially-covered tires that may not conform to your state’s laws of the road. Bushwacker fender flares not only increase your truck’s wheel and tire coverage, they also impart a tough, off-road look to the vehicle. 

  • Coverking Custom Sunshield – While not as glamourous as aftermarket wheels or fender flares, the humble sunshield does protect your interior from UV damage, which plays a big part in preserving a vehicle’s value. It also disperses heat and keeps your interior cool while you’re running errands.
