Protect That Bed With A Truck Bedliner

truck bedNow that you just spent tens of thousands of dollars for the pickup truck you’ve always wanted, it’s in your best interest to protect your truck with a truck bedliner. There are several different kinds of bed liners to choose from, while spray in Bedliners can be costly and hazardous to your health, try a Drop-In Bedliner or a Carpeted one,  this sometimes makes it difficult to decide which type is right for your pickup truck.  How do you use your truck? Will the bedliner protect your truck from constant hauling of heavy objects? Do you need slight protection for occasional use? Or is the bedliner strictly for looks? You want protection no matter what, and a truck bed liner will protect the body of the truck bed from damage while hauling items. Since trucks are designed to be used heavily, the beds will benefit from an extra layer of protection. A bed liner will keep your truck looking great, even if you haul a lot in it. You will not have to worry about covering scratches and dings to the finish of the bed later on. Bedliners do not permanently alter your truck in any way, they are easy to install and can be easily removed. Most have thick, rigid bodies that provide protection against dents in the bed of your truck, and are long lasting and easy to clean. Bedliners can mount under the bedrail or can be placed over it to add more protection.  My husband just purchased an F150 and wanted a quality plastic liner, he decided on one from Duraliner, which has amazing write ups. No matter what type of liner you choose for your pickup truck a plastic liner or a rugged liner, make sure the one you choose is high quality. There’s no sense in investing in a product if you’re going to buy something that won’t last as long as you own your truck.

New Hunting Technology and How It Can Help You.

hunting

Deer hunting is an age-old tradition. While there are different methods used today, the underlining motivation for most people is the thrill of the hunt. Nevertheless, new technology and accessories are different today than those used for hunting thousands of years ago, but it is the anticipation and excitement that truly makes the sport of hunting.

Throughout history we have found many ancient cave paintings of deer being speared by man. They have also found remains of stone weapons and animal bones that were used to assist in the kill. Archaeologists know that ancient humans used every part of their harvest. Bones were used for tools, skin was made for clothes. Because deer were plentiful in many areas across the world, they became a main source of food. Hunters in those days used slings and spears to take down the deer and kept the antlers as trophies, the same way hunters do today.  Today hunters have so many more useful tools at their hands. The internet can give details to the best regions for deer hunting. You can also find out the best time of day to find your kill. Some state parks can also provide you with maps as to deer paths that have been marked.  Today we still use most of our harvest, like we did then. We still rely on the meat for food and enjoy hanging the bucks head as a trophy.

Today, with the tremendous deer population many states are choosing to manage it by supporting deer hunting with specified guidelines to ensure that hunting enthusiasts are still intrigued and challenged. Hunters are still allowed to use modern technologies, such as rifles and crossbows. Each state outlines specific dates for hunting and put limits on what is hunted, what type of weapon is used and how much can be taken. This allows time for the deer to reproduce allow for hunting to continue.

 

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!

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.

Weekend Specials: Get Haulin’

This weekend (starting today 4/13 and running through Sunday 4/15) get special discounts on select accessories at BuyAutoTruckAccessories.com. 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.

Spring Showers Are Coming!

Spring showers are coming. It is time to make sure you have your truck bed protected. While a tonneau cover keep your bed covered, they cannot always be used. When carrying large or cumbersome cargo, you must remove you tonneau, and if it starts raining you may have some problems. However, with a bed liner, you have protection 100% of the time. It will protect your bed from the elements and from the scratches and dents that can be cause by the cargo as well.

The Duraliner Pickup Truck Bed Liner is a plastic drop-in liner that is custom molded to fit your specific truck. It is made from a durable material that stands up to heavy use and is UV-protected so it won’t fade in the sun. It has a ribbed design that prevents heavy skidding and sliding of cargo and also provides for better water drainage. It is available in both under-rail and over-rail designs and most designs include board and cup holders. All necessary hardware is included.

Plastic liners offer good protection, but if you do a lot of tailgating you may prefer a carpeted Truck Bed Liner. Bedrug’s liner is made of closed cell foam and looks and feels like carpet. The floor of the liner is .75-inches thick, providing a comfortable surface for sitting, kneeling, or even lying down. This foam prevents cargo from sliding, stands up to bleach, gas, oils, and chemicals, and will not absorb liquids. It is fade-resistant, and the foam will not scratch your paint. It installs in seconds with no power tools needed.

While you’re installing that Liner For Your Truck Bed, don’t forget a tailgate liner too. They prevent scratching of the tailgate surface and fit right over the existing tailgate.  The Duraliner models are made of polyethylene to be extremely long lasting and offer the same protection as a plastic drop-in liner. They are custom designed for a better fit and most include a protective lip to cover the top of the tailgate. Installation hardware is included, and they are easy to install.
