  • Weekend Specials: Promo Code

    This weekend (starting today 4/27 and running through Sunday 4/29) use Promo Code PROMO225 and get $15 off your purchase of $225. If you’re looking for a useful $225 purchase, running boards are definitely the way to go. In fact we have some brand new running boards in stock from EGR and ICI that meet the promo code requirements.

    EGR Integrated Side Steps are designed specifically for SUVs. They blend right into the trim accents at the fenders and door bottoms creating a seamless wheel-to-wheel integrated board. They also have injection molded end caps to complete the look. For extra gripping ability, a non-slip texture is embedded into the step. These boards have an aluminum finish with black powdercoating and are OEM tested and approved.

    If you want a unique look, ICI’s Nerf Bar Style Running Boards are the way to go. They feature a 3-inch stainless steel tube with a running board step set into the tube. This extra reinforcement provides for a sturdier step and a much wider stepping area than other nerf bars or running boards. These bars extend from wheel to wheel for a cohesive look, and have E-coated mounting brackets for durability. The running board surface is available in stainless steel or aluminum. The stainless steel models include non-slip rubber runners for a better grip. The aluminum models have incorporated extruded tops. All models have a limited lifetime warranty.

  • Put it on the Roof!

    Before heading out on a driving vacation or road trip, be sure that you have enough room for all of your luggage and cargo. If there’s not enough room in your back seat, trunk, or hatchback, then put it up on your roof! Roof racks and carriers will keep all of your cargo safe until arrival, and unlike rear baskets and carriers, do not require a receiver to use. So if you don’t have a receiver, or you’re already using it to pull a trailer, roof top racks are the way to go. Here are three new products that let you utilize your roof to carry whatever extras you need.

    Curt’s Roof Mount Cargo Carrier mounts to most roof racks, providing the extra storage space you need. It has a two piece design that is easy to assemble and install and is lightweight for easy mounting and moving. Its dimensions are 41.5-inches long by 37-inches wide with 4-inch sides to keep your cargo secure. If you need more room, you can also purchase the extension rack, which attaches between the two pieces for an additional 21-inches of length.

    For extra security, don’t forget to add a Roof Rack Cargo Net. These nets cover your cargo and attach to the rooftop carrier’s bars with hooks. They are easy to install and remove, keeping your cargo safe on the road without causing you any hassles. They are available in a 44 by 38-inch net for the standard cargo carrier and in a 65 by 38-inch net for the carrier with the extension rack.

    If you want a roof rack but don’t want the raised rails ruining the sleek lines of your vehicle, try out Pilot’s Inflatable Roof Rack. This roof rack includes two inflatable pieces made of heavy-duty laminated nylon. The pieces inflate quickly with the included pump, and lay across the front and back of your roof. The attached straps enter your vehicle’s cabin and lock into place with cambuckle tie downs. Installation of this system takes mere minutes with no tools required. This rack fits on most 2 and 4-Door vehicles and has a 45 lb. carrying capacity.


  • Weekend Specials: Get Haulin’

    This weekend (starting today 4/13 and running through Sunday 4/15) get special discounts on select accessories at This weekend we’re offering great accessories on accessories that help you haul ladders, lumber, and other cargo in your truck.

    If you’re hauling around a ladder, then your best bet is Steel Truck Racks. Kargo Master Pro III racks are constructed of high tensile strength 1-5/8-inch diameter steel alloy tubing. They use rugged 14-inch mounting plates that distribute the rack load over a larger area. Other special features include rear grab handles that provide easier loading and unloading, and a removable rear crossbar that allows improved truck bed access. These racks are available for trucks with and without shells and require no cutting for installation.

    If you have to haul lumber, tubing, or other long cargo, you need a Hitch Mounted Truck Bed Extender. This extender mounts to your hitch and extends out past your truck tailgate to provide an extra support surface. The extender expands in four directions; with its arms moving wider (50-inches) and narrower (30-inches) depending on the width of you load. It also expands in height, reaching the height of your truck cab’s roof to aid in carrying rooftop cargo. This extender is made of durable steel and supports up to 750 lbs.

    Finally, no matter what you’re hauling, you need to protect your truck bed with a Pick Up Truck Bed Liner. Bedliner’s BedTread requires no drilling, sanding, or prepping to install. It uses hook and loop fasteners and does not damage the truck bed. It’s made of .25-inch thick TPO composite bonded to water-proof foam. Its textured surface prevents cargo from sliding and its thickness absorbs impact and prevents damage and scratched to your truck bed.
