Staff Picks: RealTruck’s Top 10 Categories

It should come as little surprise that many members of the RealTruck.com team are truck enthusiasts themselves. You can find just about every popular pickup truck on the road today sitting in our parking lot. Whether it’s an F-150, Ram, Colorado, or Frontier, most of these trucks are outfitted with at least a few upgrades and accessories. To help you get the most out of your truck, our team of experts has named the top 10 truck accessory categories. 

Tonneau Covers

No other accessory singlehandedly improves your truck’s utility like a tonneau cover. Covering your truck bed not only protects your gear from inclement weather, it also gives your truck a finished look that an open bed can’t duplicate. With dozens of brands and designs to choose from, our staff selected these three as the best representatives of the category.

Running Boards and Nerf Bars

Stop jumping out of your truck! It might look cool, but over time, it can take a toll on your feet and knees. By installing a set of nerf bars or running boards, you’ll be able to enter and exit your truck easily, avoiding wear and tear on your truck’s upholstery and your own lower body. The following three examples run the gamut from simple and affordable to the most advanced running boards available.

Interior

You’ll spend more time with your truck’s interior than any other part of the vehicle. Why not make sure your cab is as clean and comfortable as possible? These interior upgrades will protect your upholstery from damage caused by spills, regular use, and UV rays, preserving the comfort and value of your truck for years to come.
