Customizing your vehicle in order to improve certain aspects has been a time honoured tradition among car lovers ever since one car owner told the other “my exhaust is bigger than yours”. Luckily though, not all modifications are made simply for visual appeal or because someone didn’t like the particular bumper the car already came with, but rather most are done in order to give your car a feature it didn’t already have.
One of the most underrated pick up truck accessories you can get are the side steps. They are great for making it easier for both you and your passengers to get into the car without any difficulty, which is a particularly useful feature for some of the trucks with higher ground clearance. Another great aspect of the side steps is that they are relatively inexpensive, especially when you compare them to the price range of some other pick-up truck accessories. And you also have the option of getting rock sliders which can also help your vehicle by giving it quite a bit of additional side protection by the doors, much like what a bumper does for the front.
If you are interested in improving the performance of your car a bit and also giving it a few extra pretty useful additional features as well, then what you are looking for is called a snorkel.
This car part is meant to be installed on the front of the car and have the opening be placed just above the wind-shield. Its primary purpose is to improve the air intake of the engine by providing air much more free of dust, sand particles and other pollutants that can be found on any standard road.
Needless to say, these pollutants might reek havoc on the internal operation of your engine bay. It also allows you to go deeper in water without having to worry about the engine flooding, though your car won’t exactly be turned into a submarine so still be careful with that.
Leaving aside the types of accessories that could impact the vehicle’s performance in one way or another and moving more towards the recreationally focused ones, the best choice here would be the bike racks or the roof boxes. The choice here is apparent. If you enjoy biking or would like to start doing it by fastening your bike to your car and heading down to some little scenic route that you like, then the bike rack is the choice for you. If however you are not a big cyclist, the roof rack can give you that little bit of extra room where you can put your luggage that always seems to be lacking when you pack for a vacation.
There is a vast assortment of other accessories that you can pick out from so you might want to do your own research as this is only my opinion and you might have your own as to what you think are much more useful accessories that you want to install.
