Accessories and parts to improve your Truck Gas Mileage

May 3, 2013 at 7:34 pm

With the Gas pricing going up, truck owners are looking at ways to modify their vehicles to improve the mileage. Below are the accessories that will help you improve the gas mileage of your truck

Tonneau Covers

Tonneau Covers not only protect your truck bed but also improve the aerodynamics of your truck which results in better gas mileage. Tonneau Cover improve the air flow by letting the air flow over the truck rather than into the truck bed, which creates drag. Each type of Tonneau Cover; Rollup, Retractable, Folding, Snap and Hinged help in giving the truck better aerodynamics and improved gas mileage.

Learn More about Tonneau Covers

Air Filters & Intakes

Dirty air filters stop the engine from sucking in clean air thereby reducing the efficiency of the engine which results in poor gas mileage. Hence it is highly advisable to replace the air filters on a regular basis. There are also filters available that are reusable and easily cleanable and last the life of your truck. Either way a good clean air filter helps in improving the gas mileage of your truck

In order to further improve gas mileage and also get the most horsepower out of your truck, you need to remove the restrictions put in the size of the air box and the air path running into the engine. An air intake completely replaces the airflow assembly which results in improved gas mileage, increased horsepower and torque. In short air filter and air intakes are like lungs, they help your truck to breathe better.

Learn More about Air Filters and Intakes

Exhaust Systems

The passage of air from the engine should be easy and should not make the engine choke up in its own dirty air. Mainly the stock exhaust systems have narrow pipes and tight bends which restrict the easy flow of air out of the system. Replacing the stock exhaust system with one which has wider, straighter pipe will result in a easier release of dirty air from the vehicle’s engine.

Apart from these modifications, regular truck maintenance and little TLC will help in improving your truck gas mileage and the life of your vehicle.

10 Reasons to Buy a Pickup Truck

April 26, 2013 at 3:53 pm

You don’t have to live in the country to own a pickup truck. The style and utility of today’s models are perfect for both men and women in the market for a new vehicle. Long gone are the days when only famers, construction workers and the like can rock a sturdy, efficient pickup. There are many reasons to buy a pickup truck, below are the top 10 deciding factors:

Tundra-pickup-truck

• You’re safer in a truck.

Trucks are big and heavy by nature, and they’re also safer than a regular compact car or sports vehicle. There are many factors that contribute to the safety of an individual involved in an accident, but when it comes down to it—would you rather be in a sturdy, lofty truck upon impact or a tiny crushable vehicle?

• Trucks grab a crowd’s attention.

Forget high-powered, bright yellow Ferraris; few cars grab the attention of the general public like a bright, shiny well-tailored pickup truck. What’s more, with the height you get while sitting atop your pickup perch, you’ll feel like the king of the road.

• You can haul anything.

Obviously towing stuff has always been a perk of owning a truck. However, with today’s models (many including a fifth wheel trailer hitch) you have more options for hauling than ever. Easily transport toys like motorcycles, jet skis, boats, and more, and be a hero to anyone that needs a little help getting a large item from here to there.

• Trucks are more comfortable than ever.

Those used to the old-style pickups might remember the cramped, overheated feeling of riding in an older truck model, but these days pickup trucks can come with comfortable seating for five, with a spacious amount of leg room, modern air conditioning, and luxury features like heated seats.

• Trucks can handle the toughest landscapes.

Luxury features don’t mean a wimpier model. Though today’s pickups are soft and cushy on the inside, they’re still rough, tough and adaptable on the outside. You won’t think twice about cruising down an uneven, rocky dirt road in your new pickup.

• Chicks dig ‘em.

Cute country girls love pickup trucks. And before the ladies reading lose interest in this post, remember: Dudes dig trucks too. A nice pickup can do a whole lot for your social life, way more than the latest compact care, anyway.

• You’re going to love having a truck bed.

The benefits of a cargo area are limitless. You can pretty much carry anything you’ve ever wanted to put in your car in your truck. You know that dirty mountain bike you wish you could transport? Chuck it in the back of your truck, strap it down and go! All you need to do to get rid of the evidence is simply hose off your cargo area.

• Your neighbors will love you.

Pickups are the saving grace for many people in need. But most don’t have the power of a pickup hiding away in their garage. With your modern pickup, you’ll be the hero of the neighborhood for anyone that needs a little hauling or a little help moving a big item. Before your lazy bone turns you off of this perk, remember that most return the favor with a delicious home cooked meal, a bottle of wine or a fabulous gift card. Score!

• Trucks are virtual toolboxes.

In essence, trucks are the ultimate tool for hauling and working on the road. But they’re also the ultimate toolbox to have at your disposal. Trucks can hold and haul pretty much anything you need for work or life, and they can even tow another vehicle altogether!

• Everyone should own one at some point in their life.

Most people think that the midlife crisis sports car purchase is the ultimate in vehicular obligation. But there is a new trend emerging. The solidarity and confidence that emanates from a truck owner gives others a sense of reliability and trust. You and your truck will be the saving grace of many people for many reasons, whether they are broken down on the side of the road or they need someone to bring a new mattress to their home. Be the person that everyone wants to rely on, and get a truck.

The Benefits of Having a Floor Mat for Your Truck

April 4, 2013 at 8:50 pm

So, what’s the big deal about floor mats? Why the need to have a good quality mat when your truck carpet is enough?

floor-mats-trucks

Without any further ado, let me just mention some of the hazards of common truck carpets:

  • All the mud, moisture, dirt, and gravel from your shoes gets stuck to your carpet, making it dirty and foul smelling overtime
  • If you like eating in your truck (which I sure you do) then any soda, food, or coffee dropped on the carpet will make a permanent stain
  • There is very little or no friction between your feet and your truck, which can also be hazardous while entering or exiting the truck
  • Gum or pieces of mud from your shoes dries and turns into a sticky-or worse-hard mess.
  • A dirty carpet smells bad and makes the truck interior look dirty and unappealing to both drivers and passengers

Now that you have looked at the downside of not having floor mats, let’s look at some of the benefits of having a floor mat for your truck:

  • Floor mats protect your truck from the stains that could devalue your vehicle
  • Any food, coffee or soda you drop can be easily cleaned and also does not leave a stain on the interior of your truck’s original carpet
  • If you install all-weather floor mats, you can have protection from severe weather all year round
  • Any mud, water, dirt, etc. gets trapped in the floor mat and doesn’t reach your truck floor, preventing it from getting stained and dirty
  • Floor mats provide better foot friction while entering, exiting or driving the vehicle
  • Finally, floor mats also give a nice and stylish look to the interior of your truck

You can get floor mats based on the region you live in and the weather conditions there. If you live in a region where you experience all sorts of weather, all-weather floor mats are for you. They will protect your vehicle from muddy, water-drenched shoes and/or dirty, snow covered boots. If you live in the southwest, where the weather gets dry, you can settle for stylish floor mats.

At Ultimate Auto Accessories, you will find floor mats of different types and brands to serve your needs.
The various brands we carry are:

  • Lloyd Custom Made Floor Mats
  • Nifty Mats
  • Husky Mats
  • WeatherTech Mats
  • Fan Mat Team Logo Mats
