  • Weekend Specials: Boards and Bars

    This weekend (starting today 6/29 and running through Sunday 7/1) get special discounts on select accessories at BuyAutoTruckAccessories.com. This weekend, all of the specials we blogged about last week are on sale, as well as a couple more. These new specials are for boards and bars, but not necessarily the boards and bars you might be imagining.

    EGR’s Integrated Black Side Steps are similar to running boards, but with a unique styling and design. They are special integrated steps made specifically for SUVs. They blend right into your trim accents at both the fender and door bottoms, keeping your SUV looking cohesive and seek. Injection molded end caps keep the steps’ ends looking trim and finished, and a non-slip texture gives you and your passengers sure footing. These steps are OEM tested and approved, and have an aluminum finish with a durable black powdercoating.

    Mont Blanc’s load bars are not nerf bars for stepping, but support bars for your Mont Blanc Roof Rails. They have a 220 lb. capacity for most vehicles and attach to most OEM and aftermarket raised-side-rail-style roof rack and rails. They fit Perrycraft Aventura and Dynasport roof rack and rails, as well as their bed rails, which let you load cargo above your truck bed for extra storage space. These bars are available in two designs. The rectangular bars are made of galvanized steel with black vinyl covers to prevent scratching of your vehicle and any cargo you’re loading. The AeroWing bars are made of anodized aluminum extrusion with black vinyl inserts along the top. Both of these bar types have adjustable, theft-proof locking clamps that are rubber-padded to protect your existing rails and racks from damage.

  • Planning A Road Trip.

    No matter your age or occupation, everyone could use a little fresh air from time to time. Taking a road trip with your friends or family can be an excellent way to shed some old skin and live a little, distress and forget your troubles for a while, and to make some fond memories along the way. Summer is the perfect time to set up a road trip with your friends or family. A chance to get on the open road and explore the great states around you. It also helps get you and your loved ones off the couch and out of the everyday routine. While it requires lots of planning, the end result and experience will be worth it. Now let’s get down to the who, what, and where’s of road trippin.  You want to try to leave as much room as possible inside of your car, or truck so people and stretch and get some rest in between driving. So what are some good ways of packing? Driving trough different locations and not knowing what the weather may bring you want to make sure your stuff stays dry and safe. Get a good hitch cargo rack which is weather proof and durable.  Are you using a pickup truck and worried about everything shifting  around in the bed, use a cargo gate to keep everything in place. If you or driving in a car, hope in has a nice size trunk.  So is it a coast trip or a cross county trip, make sure you check out what “the must things to see are”.  We bought a folding bike rack a few years ago so we can bring our bikes with us which is a great way of getting around on our stops. Road trips are all about having a good time, making a memory, and enjoying the open road, so don't just go from point A to point B; take the scenic route, take detours, and see what happens!

  • Weekend Specials: Reward Your Rear End

    This weekend (starting today 6/22 and running through Sunday 6/24) get special discounts on select accessories at BuyAutoTruckAccessories.com. This weekend we have special deals to reward your rear end – the rear end of your vehicle, that is. Save on bumper protectors, hitch accessories, and replacement taillights.

    When unloading cargo from a trunk or hatchback, it is common to slide the cargo across the bumper. When the cargo is groceries or maybe a new pillow, this isn’t a problem, but when it’s something heavy or misshapen, you can quickly damage the top of your bumper with dents, sings, or scratches. That’s where a Universal Bumper Protector can come in handy. This protector is available in two sizes (37x3 and 30x2.5) and is made from black OEM material. It has a textured surface that will not fade in the sun and installs with 3M automotive tape. Once this bad boy is in place, you can load and unload without worries.

    If you’ve ever needed to check your trailer hook-up at night, or worse,tried hooking up your trailer at night,you know what a hassle it can be. You need both hands free to work, but need to get a flashlight in these to see what you’re doing. Well, Bully’s solved this problem with their Hitch Mount Backup Lights. These lights mount on any 2-inch ball mount and take only minutes to install. They light up when you are in reverse, but also have a switch that can turn the lights on independently. Best of all, they can remain in place while towing. The lights are 70 watts and are in a secure and protective high-impact ABS housing.

    A good location for a spare key can be hard to find. If you make it too obvious, potential thieves might find it too easily, and if you make it too hard, you might forget yourself! Not to mention a spare car key at your house isn’t going to do you much good if you’re on the road. That’s why the Hitchsafe Key Holder is a perfect location. It’s safe and convenient, with an extremely durable all metal construction. It secures inside any 2-inch hitch receiver and you set your own 4-digit code in the combination lock. I know what you’re thinking: isn’t a receiver with a combination lock going to be a giveaway that there’s something hidden inside? That’s why each hitch safe also includes a rubber dust cover to conceal the combination dials.

    Okay, all of these specials so far have been for nice and practical accessories, but what if you want something that just looks cool? LED Tail Lamp Replacement Kits are the accessories for you. These kits give your vehicle a custom look with Euro style tail lamps that use the latest in LED technology. Their diamond cut reflectors provide uniqueness even when the lights are off, and they meet or exceed all SAE/DOT standards. These lights are precision engineered for a perfect fit, which is why they are factory replacement legal. Finally, they're easy to install and are available in both chrome and black housing.

  • Gear Up For Surf Fishing!

    It’s that time off the year, summer. Family vacation to the beach which means you have a few hours of packing and loading the truck with the family’s luggage. You don’t mind doing this because you know that it means surf fishing is only hours away. You get the roof top basket secured to the truck just enough room to load the beach essentials as well as some luggage. The cargo carrier system goes on next, for the more valuable items, and maybe some food. Now for the most important part loading your gear, don’t need much so a tubular cargo rack is plenty. Enough space for the cooler, your rod, and your tackle. Off to the beach you now go. You wake up the next morning and look outside and it’s a perfect day at the beach. A cloud covers the sun, there’s a gentle ocean breeze blowing towards the shore and the waves create a commotion in the surf! What a perfect setting for a day of surf fishing! No matter how you look at it, surf fishing can be an awesome outdoor adventure. Compared to boat or pier fishing, surf fishing is more, “out there and in it”. With the cool sand and water washing at your bare feet, surf fishing blows away the experience offered by any other type of sport fishing. With surf fishing, you can enjoy getting down to just the basics. In the U.S., we’re lucky to live in one of the largest and most geographically varied countries in the world. Taken as a whole, it’s a fisher’s paradise. We have huge rivers, mountain streams, huge lakes, small lakes, saltwater lakes, and, of course, thousands of miles of diverse coastline. Practically every coastal region in the country has its own unique fishing opportunities, but there are some that really stand out,

    Top 5 Surf Fishing Spots

    1. The Florida Keys
    2. Washington State
    3. Louisiana
    4. Southern California
    5. North Carolina

    Now that you know where to go, what’s keeping you?

  • Not Another Tie For Dad, Need Ideas?

    Father's Day is a great reminder to show Dad your appreciation for all the times he has helped you out. Chances are he taught you to drive and perhaps maintain a vehicle. Well Father’s Day is coming soon and don't wait to the last moment, like every other year.  Dad doesn't want socks or a tie again; he already has heaps to keep him going. Why not buy dad something special this Father’s Day, something for him? Ever consider car accessories? If dear ol' dad is a truck enthusiast, you're in luck. There are a slew of truck-related gift options from which to choose. Sixty-nine percent of male drivers work on their car, truck, minivan or SUV, according to the Car Care Council. Whether it's just light maintenance, like changing the oil and replacing the wiper blades, or heavier projects, such as replacing brakes, most dads enjoy taking care of their vehicles.  Most men define their image by the car, or truck they drive. Men convey their individuality by the way they accessorize their set of wheels much like a woman defines her image with jewelry, hairstyle, and clothes, so maybe he might like some bling as well like a new set of chrome wheel skins. Ever hear, or see your husband admire another man’s rack, well why not get him his own for his truck.  What is it with a man and the size of his bed? The bigger the better, well have you noticed that the more room a man has just means the more room he has to store with “junk”. How about a tool box to put his junk in? Does  the man in your life likes attention, does he easily lose his patience due to  the other drivers out there, because we all know he is not the problem, how about something that will help him with that stress like an electric horn. Whoever the man is on your list, whether he is your dad, boyfriend, son, husband, or nephew, he will like something for his car, or truck.

  • Going Camping? Try Truck Camping.

    Muddy ground, creeping critters, leaking tents! All disadvantages of tent camping. Add the fact that you have to do something with that muddy, soggy tent the next morning and tent camping becomes even less attractive. No mud, no bugs, no leaks! Just some of the benefits of truck camping. So you might think who would want to sleep in their truck, or on their truck bed? How can that be comfortable? What about privacy? Let’s cover each topic and see what can be done to make truck camping more attractive. Well, before you head off and begin construction on your very own redneck RV, take a minute and think what do I really need? I can understand not wanting to sleep on the bare metal of the truck bed so get a bed liner, want extra comfort get a carpeted bedliner. What if it rains, no problem you have a few choices here, is cash a problem, buy some tarps. Have a few extra dollars to keep you and your “companion” dry maybe a cap for the bed or even a truck bed tent (yes there is such a thing) this will not only keep you dry bit it will also provide privacy. Get crafty with some wood and make the back of your truck bed into a bi-level.  You can sleep up top and store your gear on the bottom.  Worried about not fitting your gear in the bed, along with you, try using a bed extender. That will give you that extra space you need. So now just get some blankets and pillows and you are good to go. When you arrive at the campsite open that beer, sit back, and watch your friends try to figure out how that damn tent went up.
