Truck lovers, this is for you.
We purchase our pickup trucks as do-anything Swiss Army knife vehicles that we can depend on, no matter what. Sometimes even their great utility from the factory can use some enhancement, which is why we personalize our pickups for our own purposes.
Here are some of the best accessories on the market today.
1. BIGGER WHEELS/TIRES.

If your truck doesn't have a receiver, then call AutoZone to get one from a company like Reece Hitches,
Manufacturers are increasingly offering protective bed liners as a factory option, so check that box if you can. If not, most dealers provide it as a dealer-installed option, which lets you roll the cost into the financing of a new truck.
Alternatively, you can go with a universal slide-in plastic liner from AutoZone that provides even stricter protection.
If you're hauling hefty loads with your truck, then more power
If you add more 'go' to your truck, you'll want more 'pizazz' to match. Electronic trailer brake controllers operate the brakes on your trailer, so your truck's brakes don't have to stop both vehicles on their own.
Most new trucks have available integrated trailer brake controllers, but neglecting that you can add on a sophisticated aftermarket unit from AutoZone that is much better than the old controllers that always seemed to either lock up the trailer's brakes or not provide enough braking capability to help.
All-weather, all-season truck utility
Used to be that trucks had rubber platforms in their cabs, but with modern plush carpeting, today's vehicles can look a little precious for dirty work. That's where AutoZone floor mats can help, providing sacrificial floor covers to protect the carpet from mud and snow.
8. RUNNING BOARDS
High-riding pickups are great for driving over barriers, but those who are shorter in stature can struggle with the climb into the cab. Running boards from AutoZone provide an easy step into the cab that delivers driving a truck just a little more convenient and comfortable.
