  • Grill Guards Give Front End Protection

    Grill Guards are a great addition for any vehicle that goes off-roading or just needs a fiercer look. They enhance the overall look of your vehicle while protecting the grill, bumper, and headlights from damage. Steelcraft's Front Runner Grill Guards are made of high-quality 304 polished stainless steel or of black powdercoated steel. They have a solid one-piece construction, so there are no weak points on the frame. This grill guard is easy to install with no drilling required and comes with a limited lifetime warranty for the polished guard and a 5-year warranty for the black guard.

    The Go Rhino Grill Guard is constructed of high-quality welded steel and is custom fit for your vehicle. It has a black powdercoat finish to protect from stains and rust and required no drilling for installation. This grill guard's pre-drilled cross bar allows multiple add-on accessories to be mounted. It also exclusively features a 2.25-inch Stepguard cross bar, which offers convenient access to your vehicle's hood and engine. The Stepguard is compressed into the steel to retain the steel's strength while still providing a solid stepping surface. Wraparound Brush Guards with contoured 1.25-inch tubes are also available for some models. Each grille guard has a 3-year/36,000 mile limited warranty.

    Steelcraft's Custom Grille Guards feature a solid, welded one-piece construction that is specially designed to resist rattling in all driving conditions. These grille guards bolt directly to your vehicle's frame using existing holes, and thus require no drilling to install. They are available with black powdercoating (which is applied in a 5 stage process for durability) or with highly polished stainless steel. Matching taillight and rear bumper guards are also available for a cohesive look and all around protection for your vehicle.

  • Cargo Securing Necessities

    If you're hauling cargo in your truck this summer, it is essential to have the proper gear to keep your cargo safe and secure while in transit. At a minimum, you will need bungees or straps to hold your cargo down, and some anchors to keep those bungees or straps secure. For heavy and super heavy loads, it is important to have high-quality, heavy-duty anchors, as well as the super-strong holding power provided by ratchets. Highland is a leading producer of both ratchets and Anchoring Systems that are at the tops of their classes in strength and durability.

    Highland's Bull Ring Anchor Points are constructed of heavy-duty stainless steel and provide a safe way to tie down and secure cargo in your truck's bed. The anchors are retractable, so they will not get in the way when not in use, and they are very easy to snap up and push down. They have a universal fit and require no drilling for installation.

    The Force Control Towing Ratchets by Highland are 1-inch by 6 ft. and have a 600 lb. weight capacity. They have a dual control ratchet, which controls its tightening force to prevent damage from cargo that can occur from over tightening. They also have an override button, so you can use them as a traditional ratchet too, which provides more holding force.

    Highland's Universal Anchoring System is the world's strongest anchor system! Each anchor is comprised of an eyelet and a layered plate that requires no drilling to install. The eyelet is super strong and durable,made of die-cast zinc, and can be removed when not in use. The plate's top layer is made of stainless steel and is sized to fit all vehicles with stake pockets. The middle gasket is sturdy yet soft to prevent scratching on the painted truck surface. The bottom has two stainless steel heavy-duty anchor plates that provide an exact fit for your truck. Also included are screws and a mounting stud that are made from stainless steel to resist corrosion. The eyelet and top plate have a nice shiny finish so they will look great even when not in use!

  • Extra Room for a Road Trip!

    Extra Room for a Road Trip! A long weekend is coming up again, and it's the perfect time to head out on a Road Trip! The destination is, of course, the highlight of the trip, but the trip itself can make for some fun family bonding time too! If you're prepared, you can keep the "Are we there yet?" refrains to a minimum by bringing along books, snacks, and games and telling stories. Make sure that your vehicle is prepared for the long trip too and that you have enough room to store everything you've packed. You might want to leave a little extra room for souvenirs you pick up along the way.
