NFL Tailgating Essentials

NFL Tailgating

To me, Fall means NFL tailgating and football of course. What’s not to like about football? It offers something for everyone. Whether you’re into the competition, big hits or touchdown celebrations, football, in my opinion, is the greatest sport on earth. It also gives fans the opportunity to do something every weekend their favorite team is playing at home: tailgate. Even for non-football fans, it is something everyone from kids to adults can enjoy. If you aren’t familiar with parking lot gathering, you’re missing out. If you enjoy hanging out with friends and family, grilling up some food and playing games, tailgating is for you. However you want to make sure you have all the right tailgating accessories.

How do you plan to grill burgers, brats, hot dogs, etc. without a grill? While some people go all out and bring their backyard grills, a small charcoal grill will suffice. You will be the envy of the people around you with the smell of the food you are grilling. Now you need some chairs and a folding table so you can set up your beer pong, a tailgating must. Try to keep all your tailgating accessories together so it is easier to find.  That heavy duty storage bag that you got last football season really comes in handy keeping all your tailgating gear in one place.

You will be glad when you and the boys are throwing the ball around that you spent the extra money over the summer to get the carpeted bedliner for your truck. You don’t want your girl sitting on a bare metal bed now she and her girlfriends can stay a little warmer and more comfortable. Along with the comfort it will also help with protecting the bed as well.

Game time, is near. You now start breaking down the canopy, folding the chairs and cleaning up everything else you set up. Pack up everything back in the storage bag and load everything into your truck bed. Once you have all that down you can now lock up and go enjoy the game with your friends. Make sure you lock your truck cover, you don’t want to come back and find out that all your gear is now gone. After locking up, put the key back in the hitch receiver key safe. No worry about losing that key, you just have to remember the combination. Game Time!

One of the top interior accessories is leather seats. They’re comfortable and luxurious, and are usually found in the highest quality trim packages.

Whether you have a boat or just want one, this whimsical yet cool cover is the way to go.

This last accessory will have a narrow appeal, as it only fits Jeep Wranglers, but nevertheless, these Jeep Front Bumpers are really cool. They are replacement bumpers, so they require removal of your existing bumper, however, no drilling is required for installation. These bumpers are made of 3-inch diameter steel tubing, so they definitely look rugged.
