  • Weekend Specials: Snow Sale!

    This weekend (starting today 12/23 and running through Sunday 12/25) get special discounts on select accessories at Yesterday was officially the first day of winter, but many states have already seen plenty of snow. To help you cope in the upcoming months, check out these great deals on must have accessories for the snow.

    Snow can wreak havoc on your truck by piling up in your truck bed, melting down to water, and then refreezing as ice. In all three of those iterations the snow/water can be both annoying and damaging to your truck bed.  That’s why you need Venture’s Hinged Tonneau Cover. It keeps water and snow out, protecting your cargo and your truck. This tonneau has a V-Tech honeycomb core which provides extra strength without extra weight. It also uses a quick release V-Hinge for easy opening and closing and has a dual lock system for extra safety. Its brace-free interior means a bigger storage capacity and its flawless, textured finish makes snow removal easy.

    When there’s snow and ice on the ground, it’s important to be extra careful when getting into and out of your vehicle, lest you slip and fall. There are running boards and nerf bars for your door, but don’t forget about a truck step for your truck bed. The AMP Research BedStep is the perfect accessory for the job. It has a rigid, glass-reinforced composite step pad for extra safe footing, and the rest of the step is Teflon coated to resist corrosion. It has a 300 lb. load capacity and uses stainless steel pins for rock solid stability. Best of all, it deploys and retracts with a simple nudge of your foot, so it’s easy to use even when your hands are full!

    Finally, the Extra Wide Folding Cargo Basket by Curt is perfect for carrying your snow blower. Whether you need to cart it home from the store or over to a friend or family member’s house, this extra wide basket should be the perfect fit. It is 24 by 60-inches and is made completely of steel with a durable powdercoat finish. This basket features 6-inch high sides for added security and fits 2-inch receiver hitches. It also includes a folding shank that allows it to fold up when not in use. The total weight of the carrier and cargo must not exceed 500 lbs so be careful to check the weight of whatever you are carrying, and don’t forget to factor in any potential snow accumulation!

  • Bringing Home the Christmas Tree

    The tree lots in my area are still chock full of evergreens waiting for the right family. But we all know that picking out the perfect christmas tree is only the beginning. Once you’ve paid for your tree, you have to get it home, prepared, and decorated. Now I can’t offer advice on the decorating, but I can give some pointers on getting the tree home. With a truck, it’s fairly easy, just stow it in your truck bed and tie it down securely. In a car, SUV, or van, however, you’ll need to secure the tree to the top of your vehicle. This is where roof rails come in handy.

    Aventura Aftermarket Roof Rails are versatile and sturdy. They are available in standard lengths that can be easily cut down for a custom length without ruining the good looks of the rails. These rails have a durable, protective powdercoat finish with a choice between black and silver. Rails are easy to install, but do require drilling, so have your drill at the ready.

    DynaSport Low Profile Roof Rails have a low-profile and aerodynamic design. These rails are made of high-strength tempered aluminum extrusion with a black matte or anodized bright finish. These rugged rails are UV stabilized and pre-drilled for easy installation. They include self-sealing stainless steel tapping screws and self-adhesive roof slats.

    If you like the look and function of a roof rack, and want to convert your rails, be sure to check out Load Bars. They increase stability, support, and load capacity on your roof rails. They will fit both Aventura and DynaSport rails, as well as many other raised side rail style racks and rails. These load bars are adjustable along the length of the rails and have rubber-padded clamps to protect from damage. They are available in two styles, steel rectangular and aluminum aerowing, and have a 220 lb. load capacity for most vehicles. Make Christmas easier with a Roof Rack.
