We’re well into the fall season now, and the leaves are finally changing colors and creating beautiful scenery. After the colors change, the leaves begin falling, and while raking them up may be a hassle, it’s always fun to take a bug jump into a pile of raked leaves. Unfortunately, the leaves don’t just fall on your lawn; they fall on the road and in your truck bed too. What you need are some auto and driving accessories to protect your car or truck from the many problems of fall driving.
First think of driving accessories like lights, more specifically driving and fog lights. You never want to be caught out in the middle of a snowstorm with burned out bulbs. They could be very beneficial during severe weather conditions such as thunderstorms and snow fall. It is impossible to control what the condition of the road is going to be, and this is the time universal fog lighting is so great. In reality, they make your drive much safer. Your visibility is significantly increased over that of someone without these types of lights installed on their car or truck. When the road is foggy, there may be a great deal of accidents, particularly among people without the proper equipment. If you're driving in low visibility weather conditions without the use of driving or fog lights, you might be putting yourself on the line. You always should be ready for whatever nature throws in your direction. Expecting road conditions to be good at all times is not practical. On the other hand, in foggy weather, aftermarket fog lights can alert other cars and pedestrians that you're nearby. Nobody wants to be involved in a car accident, so we have to prepare and avoid them no matter what.
With your tires always being in the debris of the bad weather one of the first places a car loses paint and starts to rust is the rear of the fender wells. That is easy to understand considering the amount of mud and gravel that gets thrown against them by the tires. The only thing that you can do is add a set of mud flaps. Mud flaps are designed to take the cleanliness and health of your vehicle to that next level with their ability to deflect debris and keep your wheels going smoothly. Many mud flaps have a special groove design on them that funnels water and debris away from your vehicle protecting it by preventing the water from ever reaching the metal.
With summer gone and the beginning of fall here and winter is near, and unless you want to be cleaning out your truck bed all fall and winter long, it’s time to seriously consider a tonneau cover. Tonneaus are one of the best truck accessories out there. They protect your truck bed from rain, leaves, snow, and ice which can be damaging and lower the resale value of your truck. They also protect your truck’s cargo from both weather and theft by keeping it protected and hidden from view. Finally, having a tonneau can actually save you money, they eliminate tailgate drag, making your truck more aerodynamic and increasing gas mileage. Some tonneaus have been shown to increase gas mileage.
