All You Need to Know About Nerf Bars for Your Truck

March 22, 2013 at 2:10 pm

Nerf bars are used for convenience purposes to make it easier for you to enter and exit your truck. They also give your vehicle a sporty look. Nerf bars were initially fitted to the side of race cars to protect them. Race car drivers would intentionally collide their cars with other cars while overtaking one another at turns, which would damage the side of the vehicles. Thus, nerf bars were employed to protect the side of the cars and prevent tires from becoming entangled.

Choosing A Dodge Tonneau Cover

March 8, 2013 at 3:34 pm

One of the first aftermarket dodge truck parts people buy is a tonneau cover. These are the bed covers that fit right onto the bed of your truck. Depending on the type of bed cover you choose, they can be installed in about 30-60 minutes. They’re a great aftermarket part to install on your truck because they don’t require a lot of technical skill to put on and they’re a fairly cost efficient upgrade for your Dodge truck.

Tonneau covers help keep your truck bed clean and will secure the contents as well. Also, many people believe that trucks look much better with a truck bed cover installed. There are 6 popular types of tonneau covers:

  • Rollup: These are soft bed covers typically made from vinyl. They attach to your Dodge’s bed with snaps or with a bedrail attachment. They’re the most popular type of tonneau cover there is. This is partially due to the fact that they’re fairly cheap to buy and easy to install.
  • Retractable: A retractable tonneau cover is a more advanced type of bed cover that you generally see on higher end Dodge Ram trucks. They are classified under the category of hard bed covers. They’re very sleek and have a modern look to them. They’re weather resistant and allow you to easily get in and out of your bed since they retract into a canister on your truck bed.
  • Folding: Folding truck beds are another type of fairly agile tonneau cover. They’re made of multiple panels that stack onto each other. There are several different types of folding tonneau covers available. Some of them are completely removable so that you can have complete access to your truck bed’s contents.
  • Locking: If you’re looking for security in your tonneau cover, then snap covers are one of the best options. They have a locking mechanism built in so that anything you store in your bed is completely safe and secure. Since they are used for security purposes, they’re made of hard material so that they cannot be easily penetrated and broken into.
  • Hinged: The best way to describe hinged tonneau covers is to compare them to a car trunk. They work in a very similar method because they have a hinge on the front of the truck bed so that you can simply lift up the front part of the cover to access the bed. These can be either soft or hard. If you want full access to your truck bed, look for a hinged bed cover that is completely removable.
  • Snap: Perhaps the simplest and most basic type of truck bed cover is the snap tonneau cover. The major downfall of snap bed covers is that they can be a hassle to put on and take off.

There is no best type of tonneau cover. The type you choose will depend on your personal preference for the most part. The same is true of most other Dodge Ram truck parts. If your main concern is security, then a hard cover locking tonneau cover will probably be the best choice for you. If you would prefer something simpler and cost efficient, then you might consider going with a rollup.

Be sure to check out our wide selection of aftermarket Dodge truck parts and other truck accessories including bed covers today.

5 Things To Consider When Buying Aftermarket Dodge Truck Parts

March 1, 2013 at 3:24 pm

As a truck owner, you’re probably not just satisfied with the factory parts that come standard with every other Dodge truck. You want to stand out and add some customizations to your truck. This is done through buying aftermarket parts such as grills, grill guards, lowering/lifting kits, tonneau covers, mud flaps, and more. Through the use of aftermarket parts, you can transform your dull looking Ram or Dakota into a one of a kind road warrior.

Before you dive in and just start buying aftermarket parts like there’s no tomorrow, there are some things you have to consider first. This will save you time and money when you start buying aftermarket parts for your Dodge.

1: How much do you want to spend?

The very first thing you have to consider is what your budget is. The cost of aftermarket parts can really start to add up quickly. You might start out with buying a truck bed cover, and then before you know it you’re buying suspension kits, struts and other aftermarket parts that eat away at your wallet. In order to avoid this, create a budget for truck parts. Outline how much money you want to go toward the interior, exterior, performance parts, etc. This will help you out when it comes time to price parts and figure out how much you can afford.

A majority of Dodge aftermarket parts come in different grades of quality. You might have a low quality lifting kit, mid quality, and high quality. By determining your budget before hand, you’ll avoid the dilemma of having to figure out what grade of parts you want to buy.

2: What aftermarket parts do you want?

The next step will be determining which parts you want to buy. Some people like to focus strictly on performance aftermarket parts, others simply want to improve the look of their truck. Some want to completely customize every aspect of their truck. Take a look at our list of Dodge truck accessories to get an idea of different aftermarket parts you can buy for your truck. Make a list of the parts you want to buy.

Remember to keep your budget in the back of your mind. You can add as many parts to your truck as you wish, but just be mindful that you can’t exceed your budget. Anything that doesn’t fit into your budget will have to wait until later.

3: What order do you want to upgrade?

Most people don’t install a bunch of aftermarket parts on all at the same time. Adding new parts usually happens over the entire period you have your truck. This is done for a few reasons. The primary reason is because of costs. Most people cannot afford to load up on aftermarket parts all at once. It’s much easier to make your upgrades over time and make the changes piece by piece.

Another reason you should plan out the order in which you want to install aftermarket parts is because you may decide that certain parts don’t go well with others. For instance, you may buy a new grill for your truck and decide that a grill cover would detract from the look of the grill.

4: Where will you buy your parts?

Buying aftermarket Dodge truck parts can be tricky. You might not know what parts are compatible with your year and model Dodge. Luckily at Ultimate Auto Accessories we allow you to search your vehicle by year and model in order to ensure that you only get aftermarket parts that are compatible with your truck. Trying to guess and make assumptions leads to buying the wrong parts. Make sure you get the correct parts the first time and order your aftermarket truck parts from us.

5: Who will be installing the parts?

For simple things like adding a truck bed cover or interior alterations, you can easily make the change yourself. However, some people do not feel comfortable installing lifting kits and struts on their truck. If you do not want to make the entire truck a DIY project, you want to make sure you have a mechanic to do the work for you. Some shops will not install parts that are not bought through them. This is usually due to possible liability issues. So if you’re not going to be installing the aftermarket truck parts yourself, find a mechanic that is willing to do it for you.

How To Buy A Classic Chevy Pickup Truck

February 25, 2013 at 3:06 pm

1950 classic chevy pickup truckMaking the decision to buy a Chevy truck is very wise. Making the decision to buy a Classic Chevy pickup truck is even better. A lot of people fantasize about getting their hands on a Classic red 1950’s Chevy pickup truck with a silver grill. Visions of the sun reflecting magnificently off of the brand new paint job are enough to make you head to the nearest junkyard and see if you can salvage anything resembling the classic look. But before you head off too quick and end up blowing all of your money, follow this step by step guide on how to buy a classic Chevy pickup truck.

1: Determine what kind of Chevy you want
Some people will go in blindly with no idea of what they want. They just want a truck that looks old and has the Chevy emblem on it. However, taking the time to really put some research into the decision and knowing a little bit about the ins and outs of classic Chevy’s goes a long way. For one, you might pick a certain truck and realize that it’s nearly impossible to find aftermarket parts for it so you’ll be stuck with a truck that’s just sitting in the front of your house.

Another thing to think about is whether you want to buy a truck that has not been restored, or one that is already restored. Obviously getting a pickup that has not been restored will cost you less initially, but buying a restored Chevy pickup will mean you can enjoy it right as you purchase it. Keep in mind that fully restored Chevy pickups are not cheap by any means and can run you well into 5 figures.
In this first stage, you should also research any recalls the model you want might have had in the past and any common mechanical issues. This way when you actually go to purchase the truck you’ll have a decent idea of what problems you should look for and expect.

2: Look up the pricing
We touched on this a bit in step 1, but the price you pay for a classic Chevy pickup will largely depend on how much work needs to be done to it. With a truck that isn’t road ready, you’ll have to invest some money into Chevy pickup truck parts, so be sure to keep those costs in mind when pricing your options. Exhausts, bed replacements, windows, frames, fenders, flares and other parts can really start to add up.
You can try doing a search on Craigslist to find what price similar models are going for. You will likely run into some issues finding the exact same type and the condition of the trucks will vary considerably. You can also pick up a classic car guide that you find in grocery stores or 7-11’s. These typically have a wide range of classic Chevy pickup trucks so you will be able to get a rough estimate of the price. Again, keep in mind the cost of Chevy pickup truck parts when researching prices.

3: Look for a truck
This is either the fun or stressful part depending on the level of success you have. Search E-Bay, Auto-Trader, Craigslist, local classifieds, classic car forums, and any other possible source you can think of. Compare prices and call up the owners to see how negotiable they are on their price. Just like buying a newer car, you can and should try to haggle a bit with the price.

When you actually go to physically look at the truck, this is a perfect time to see if you can get your hands on some free Chevy pickup truck parts. Some of the people selling classic cars bought them as a restoration project but just never got around to starting or finishing it and just want to get rid of it. They may have tons of extra parts they bought that they’re willing to give you for free or at a discount.
If the car is running, make sure to check out all of the issues you researched in step 2. Ask specifically if the owner had incidents with any of the common problems the particular model has. If the car isn’t running, check and see if any necessary parts are missing such as the battery or even the engine.
Also check and see if the truck has a clear title.

4: Seal the deal
After you have checked everything out and agreed on a price, it’s time to seal the deal. If your state has any laws in regards to registering or titling classic cars (antiques) make sure you take care of all of that. Once the title has been transferred you’re all set to go!

After the sale
Once you have the truck in your possession, look around for Chevy pickup truck parts on Craigslist, forums, and online. Classic Chevy’s have a large community so finding the truck parts should be no problem at all.

You Don’t Have To Be A Designer To Get Camo Truck Accessories

February 18, 2013 at 4:11 pm

Using camo truck accessories is a great way to really bring your truck to life and make it stand out in the sea of other Rams, Silverados, and Dakotas on the road. Whether you’re looking for camo to go off-roading, hunting, or just because you like the look, we’ve got you covered. However, the problem that you’ll run into is figuring out which accessories are the best and also which accessories will work best for your truck. You don’t have to be a fancy designer or pay someone to “Pimp Your Ride” in order to get camo for your truck. Just follow these tips and turn your plain looking truck into a camo machine of excellence!

Types of Camo Accessories

You can pretty much apply the camo look to any part of your truck. Whether or not it will look good is a matter of taste however. But in order to give you some sort of idea as to the diverse options you have, here are some of the different types of camo truck accessories available.

License plates covers: You can get a license plate cover with a camo design for very cheap. This is often a good place to start because it’s easy to do and isn’t overbearing.

Hitch Covers: Another cheap camo truck accessory that you can start out with is a hitch cover. They’re easily interchangeable and a fun little addition to your truck.

Interior: You can get camo wheel covers, floor mats, seat covers, visor covers, and other interior accessories as well. Some people even like to go as far as changing the actual carpet in their truck to camouflage but that requires a bit of work if you intend to DIY.

Rear window: I’m sure you’ve seen the popular camouflage rear window graphics on trucks before. They are a great camo accessory for your tuck that also server a way to keep people from looking inside.

Trimmings: You can add camo accessories to your fender, wind deflectors, and hood of your truck as well. This is when you really start to have fun with camo accessories because they’re no longer just enjoyable from the inside of the cab.

Determine What Accessories You Want to Buy

A mistake that a lot of people make when buying car accessories in general is not having any idea about what it is they want. You know you want camo, but you have no idea if you want camo fender flares, rain guards, wind deflectors, etc. So when it comes time to actually shop, you start spending a lot more time and money than you should.

In order to avoid this, go out and look at your truck. Think about where you would like to see some camo accessories applied. Do you want camo on the interior such as wheel covers, seat covers, etc.? Would a camo hood protector/bug deflector look good on your truck? These are things you need to think about before you start shopping because they’ll determine what you’re looking for. When you skip this step, you’ll go out looking for accessories and find that you don’t know what accessories actually fit your truck or even what you want. Basically you’ll end up leaving empty handed because you had no idea what you were looking for. Either that or you’ll walk out with a bunch of things that you neither need nor want.

Start With the Interior

There really is no right or wrong place to start putting camo accessories on your truck. But if you’re a little timid or on the fence about it, I’d recommend starting with the cab of the truck. Parts like wheel covers and floor mats are cheap and easily replaceable. On the off chance that you decide that you don’t really want the camo look, you haven’t sunk hundreds of dollars into accessories already. Also, it’s pretty much a common practice to have camo accessories on the interior if you have them on the exterior so it’s a logical choice to start inside.

Taking it to the Next Level

So you’ve gotten all of the camo accessories you wanted in the form of attachments, now what? If you have the funds and desire to do so, you can actually start going all in at this point. This means actually changing out the stock parts of your truck for camo designed parts. This could include painting your truck, switching out steering wheel, reupholstering your interior etc. This is really for the die-hard camo enthusiast that really wants to go beyond the basics.

Shop Online

Here at ultimateautoaccessories.com, we offer low priced camo truck accessories. In general, you will usually find that the prices you see online for truck accessories are cheaper than what you’ll get in stores. Not only that, but you’ll have a much wider selection online as well. You don’t have to go broke buying camo for your truck, and shopping online is a great way to lower your costs.

When possible, try to make sure that you’re buying matching accessories made by the same manufacturer. I mean matching in terms of the camo pattern and the build of the parts. It prevents your truck from looking awkward and mismatched. For instance, we have a selection of camo accessories offered from Stampede so you can be assured that each accessory goes together to give your truck a clean and unified look.

5 Ways to Lift and Lower Your Truck

February 14, 2013 at 6:29 pm

Lifting and lowering trucks was once done primarily as a way to improve performance and for off-roading. But today, even the casual truck driver has taken interest in adjusting their vehicle’s height. Many are now performing the change strictly for appearance, although the performance benefits are definitely a nice plus. Before you pursue a job this big, consider the different options/methods you have for doing it. Whether you’re planning on doing some off-roading, turning your vehicle into a lowrider, or just want to sit up higher, we have you covered. Here are 5 ways to lower and lift your truck.

1) Lowering Kits
One of the most popular and convenient ways to lower your truck or SUV is by using a lowering kit. Lowering kits make it possible for even a novice to bring their vehicle closer to the road. The great thing about lowering kit is that they are made vehicle specific. This means that a lowering kit for a Dodge Dakota isn’t going to be compatible with one for a Cadillac Escalade. In other words, it takes the guess work out of things.
When you buy a lowering kit through us, you’ll get all the parts necessary such as coils, arms, brackets, and even shocks when necessary. The specific parts included in your kit will partially be dependent upon your vehicle’s make and model. So don’t be alarmed if you don’t see shocks or leaf springs in your kit. You can be assured that your lowering kit will come with everything needed for your specific truck or SUV.

2) Air Suspension
If you’re looking to really boost your truck’s performance and enable it to be able to handle any terrain, an air ride suspension might be just what you’re looking for. Often seen as an alternative to hydraulic systems, air suspension systems are another easy way to adjust your truck’s height.
Air is released or filled into your truck’s suspension system to provide safe and efficient drops and lifts as you drive. This will help improve your truck’s handling as you go over different terrain, as well as when you add on weight to your truck’s bed. You’ll notice that a lot of trucks that transfer large loads will have high quality air suspension systems because of the demand they put on their truck. We offer a wide selection of air suspension kits for a variety of vehicles.

3) Springs
If you’re not completely comfortable lowering or lifting your truck, a great way to get a feel of things is by installing spring adjustments. These springs are place in between your truck’s wheel and the frame, and are available in specific heights directly from the manufacturer. They are a part of the suspension system, and many lowering kits come with them.
Installing new springs is actually how a lot of people start out with lowering or lifting their truck’s height. It’s relatively inexpensive and can be a great DIY project for beginners. A popular method used to drop your truck’s height is to cut the springs that come with your vehicle instead of just purchasing new shorter ones. However, be advised that this causes several issues. For one, it weakens the springs. Because you’re detracting from the part’s full capacity, it logically weakens the performance. Secondly, you could potentially render the springs completely useless if cut improperly. This could potentially cause a horrendous accident and you will be able to physically feel how uneven your truck drives because of alignment problems. It’s much wiser and safer to simply buy new springs specifically made for your vehicle, rather than try to tinker with the ones already on your vehicle.

4) Suspension Lifts
In order to have complete control over your vehicle’s height in real time, Suspension lift kits are a favorite amongst a lot of truck owners. Through the use of a fluid pressure system, suspension kits give your vehicle quick blasts to adjust your height immediately. If I had to describe suspension lift systems in one word, it would be versatility.
With suspension lifts, you can adjust for steep hills, dynamic weather, and even the most dreadful of speed bumps. However, this versatility and flexibility comes at a cost. I mentioned earlier that air suspension kits are seen as alternatives to hydraulics. This is because of the cost associated with hydraulic suspension kits. A good hydraulic system will run you at least a couple grand in parts alone, and can cost several thousand for higher end kits.

5) Body Lifts
If you want to completely lift your truck or SUV up a few inches, a body lift is a great option. With body lifts, your vehicle maintains its current suspension kit, and the actual body of the truck is raised above the frame. Polyurethane or rubber blocks keep the body in place at the new height. With our DIY body lift kits, you can raise your truck up 2 or 3 inches. We have kits available (with complete step by step guides) for several major manufacturers including:

  • Chevy
  • Dodge
  • Ford
  • GMC
  • Toyota
  • Jeep

Body lifts are one of the best ways to lift your truck without breaking the bank.

Ventvisors for your Car, Truck, or SUV

September 21, 2012 at 6:47 pm

Have you ever had to roll down your window at the bank or drive-through on a rainy day and your arm and inside of your door get drenched from the rain runoff. Ventvisors for the windows will prevent this from happening. You can even have your window rolled down a bit and stay dry. The ventvisors come in sets of four or two depending on your vehicle so that you and your passengers can enjoy the fresh air and stay dry.

Each Ventshade rain guard is made of reinforced impact-resistant acrylic in attractive dark smoke acrylic. Easy to install with strong 3M brand OEM-approved tape. Vent visors are available in 2 models, Tape-On and In-Channel. The Tape-On ventvisor is taped to the outside of the window frame. The in-channel vent visor fits in the window channel and is taped inside the frame. In-Channel ventvisors are more popular because the edges are hidden and offer a more clean installation. The 3M tape is extremely strong and will hold the vent visor in place for the life of the truck or SUV. Vent Visors are also called rainguards or ventshades or ventvisors

Also available are truck vent visors in Chrome finish or Camo finish. Seven distinct patterns may be selected with the camoflage configurator and are Tape-On install only. Chrome finish is available in both Tape-On and In-Channel varieties.

WeatherTech makes a unique precision ventvisor called a Weatherflector. Weatherflectors have a light grey tint or dark smoke color and fit into the window channel without the use of any tape. If you want great looks and the ability to easily remove the vent visor, then this is your choice.
