Winter weather can be enjoyable for many, but it always means more wear and tear on your vehicle. From the colder temperatures, to the ice and snow, winter is something everyone must deal with. Luckily, AutoTruckToys has a great selection of accessories for many different vehicles that work as a perfect solution to many of winter’s problems.
The exterior of your vehicle will receive the biggest portion of the winter weather, so taking steps to protect it is most important. If you are a truck driver, a tonneau cover is a priceless accessory to have during the sleet, snow, and rain of the season. This protects your truck bed and your cargo from water damage and other elements. Mud flaps are another useful accessory that protect your vehicles body panels. These splash guards are great for blocking the salt, snow, and rain that come off of your tires. When the road gets slick, it makes it tough to make the step up into your vehicle’s cab. A set of nerf bars or running boards will solve this problem. With a lower step, you don’t have to worry about losing your footing while entering or exiting your vehicle.
Although your interior is closed off from the winter weather most of the time, there are still crucial places that need to be protected. A set of floor mats is perhaps the easiest and cheapest accessory for your vehicle, yet makes the most difference. These mats will catch whatever you can bring into the cab with you. Your carpet will stay clean and protected and with so many different styles of mats available, they add a custom touch to your interior. On the same note, seat covers should be next on your list. With the high price of replacing fabric or leather on your OEM seats, seat covers are an investment worth making.
The cold weather also has an impact on what is under your hood, and even makes starting your vehicle more difficult. A battery blanket electronically warms your car battery making it easier to start and even extends the life of your battery by preventing the loss of starting power due to cold temperatures. Speaking of starting, who really wants to tread out into the cold and start their car? A remote start system is the ultimate accessory for winter weather comfort. Simply press a button and your car will be warm and toasty when you are ready to drive it.
When winter comes knocking at your door, these accessories, along with regular maintenance will help you to be ready. With your vehicle prepared for what lies ahead, maybe you can even enjoy the snow, knowing that your vehicle is equipped for it.
