  • Painted Vent Visors are Super Stylish

    Vent visors are a useful addition to any vehicle, and can especially fruitful in areas with hot and warm weather. By shielding the tops of your windows, the visors let you keep your windows cracked in the parking lot without potential thieves seeing the openings. This can greatly improve the comfort in your vehicle, especially in the first few minutes of travel when you are waiting for the AC to kick in. You can also keep windows open in rainy weather, since the visors will block out the rain. Again, this air circulation will keep your vehicle interior cooler and much more comfortable for passengers. Circulating air also can help reduce window fog that can accumulate and block your vision. If you like off-roading, visors can come in handy there too, as they provide extra protection from mud, sand, and dust. If you like the idea of vent visors, but don't like their generic coloring, keep in mind that Painted Vent Visors are available too.

    AVS manufactures an In Channel Ventvisor that is constructed of long-lasting reinforced acrylic. It is available in a dark smoke color or can be painted to match the factory color of your vehicle. It is very easy to install, with no drilling required; each ventvisor installs inside the window channel using automotive-grade tape. This visor is designed with no leg to obstruct your side view mirrors, so you do not have to worry about visibility problems. These ventvisors are available in 2 piece and 4 piece sets and are covered by a limited lifetime warranty.

    Auto Ventshade Visors like the Aerovisor are a larger type of vent visor that are more prominent and rugged. Like the inchannel visors, they come in a dark smoke color that can be painted to match your vehicle's factory color. They also install with automotive-grade tape, with no drilling required. However, they install on the exterior of your car or truck, along the window frame. They are available in 2 piece sets for your vehicle's front doors and have a limited lifetime warranty.

  • Truck Visors are Functional and Stylish

    Truck visors can be an infinitely useful accessory for your truck or SUV because they keep the sun out of your eyes while you drive! Unless you've only ever driven at night, you know how annoying it can be to make a turn and be suddenly blinded by the sun, or to have it shining right in your eyes when you have a lot more miles to go on the same highway. A sun visor can alleviate this annoyance, while adding some style to your ride too.

    Since visors are mounted in a very prominent place on your truck, they will catch a lot of attention. If you want to avoid the "add-on" look and be sure that your new visor blends right in, you should order Painted Truck Visors, which are painted to match the factory color of your vehicle. Some unpainted accessories can complement the look of your vehicle, but a visor is so large that it will look mismatched. You may also be tempted to paint it yourself, but matching the color can take a lot of searching, and even a slight discoloration will clash with the rest of your vehicle.

    STK's ProVisor Truck Sun Visors have the same styling as the original Lund Sunvisor and Sunvisor II and offer a custom fit for each application. Their aerodynamic design is functional without looking clunky, and will keep the sun out of your eyes while maintaining the sleek lines of your vehicle. All necessary mounting hardware and paint-to-match caps are included. Each truck visor can be painted to match the factory color of your vehicle and an LED light kit is also available to enhance your nighttime driving experience.

    Lund's L2R Visor is made from black, UV-resistant ABS and has black accent gridding to give a distinctive look. It has a low profile design to reduce the vibration and whistling noises that can sometimes occur with truck visors. These visors are very easy to install, with minimal drilling required. They make a great addition to any vehicle, and can be used in combination with other Lund L2R accessories for a complete integrated look.

  • Remarkable Running Boards!

    Why add a Running Board to your truck, SUV, or van? There are plenty of reasons! First of all, they are practical. They give you and your passengers an extra step up into the vehicle. Second, they look good and add an extra touch of style. In some cases they can even complete the look of your vehicle, as off-road or raised trucks can look bare without them. Third, they can differentiate your vehicle and make it stand out. There are so many varieties: paintable ABS, shiny chrome, powdercoated black steel, narrow and sleek, thick and rugged, boards, bars, drop step, full-length, cab-length, etc., that you are sure to find the perfect fit for your vehicle.

    If you're looking for something sleek, that will enhance your truck or SUV without standing out, Painted Running Boards like Owens Side Effects are the right choice for you. They are constructed of impact-resistant ABS plastic with a black matte finish, or, of course, they can be painted to match the factory color of your vehicle. They have full-length steel reinforcements added along the length of each board and a UV protective coating that will keep boards looking new. Boards are available in eight lengths that will fit a variety of trucks, SUVs, and vans. They have custom fit body mount brackets for easy installation and come in pairs: one running board for each side.

    If you would like a running board that stands out, with a little shine and a more rugged look, Delta III Premium Extruded Running Boards are a good choice. They are constructed of heavy-gauge, ribbed aluminum and include large stone guards to prevent damage from road debris. Boards have a durable and corrosion-resistant clear or black anodized finish and have grit tape running along the length of the board for secure footing. These boards are sold in pairs and run from wheel well to wheel well on vans and SUVs and run the length of the cab on pickup trucks, with box boards also available to give a full length look if desired.

    Another way to achieve the rugged look is with nerf bars or Side Bars, like STK's 3-inch Round ProBars. They have a 3-inch diameter and are available with a high-quality mirror polished stainless steel or a 5-stage black powdercoat finish. Each application is custom designed to fit the specific model it is intended for and custom mounting brackets ensure a perfect fit. These STK ProBars have custom polyethylene step pads for maximum slip resistance and an easy, no-drill, bolt-on installation. They are sold in pairs.
