Whether you tack them on for looks or for function, bolt-on accessories can make all the difference in your Ford truck. Do you use your truck more like a work truck? There are accessories for that! Just looking to cruise the streets in style? Yep, accessories got ya covered. But we think that #stocklife is overrated, so that’s why we rounded up our top 5 must-have accessories for your Ford truck.
Protect Your Six with a Headache Rack
First on our list is the low-pro headache rack. This heavy-duty rack doesn’t just beef up the look of your truck; it can also provide much-needed protection. This headache rack comes in three different flavors, depending on your style preference. You can opt for a full-coverage rack, a rack with a window cutout or a hollow point rack-the choice is up to you.
And don’t worry. If low pro isn’t your thing, Magnum also offers high profile, standard, and service body headache racks as well.
Form Meets Function: Tonneau Cover
Next on our list of must-have accessories for your Ford truck is the BAKFlip MX4 tonneau cover. This cover is equipped with an automatically engaging lock and can be installed without drilling into your truck bed. Even better, right? It ranks a 4.7 out of 5 stars on average according to past customers.
Once it’s closed, it can hold up to 400 pounds of evenly distributed weight. Finished in matte black and made of lightweight aluminum, this tonneau cover will beef up the look of your truck and provide protection for any precious cargo you might be hauling. It comes with a 3-year warranty – which is a plus for any of you hardcore haulers out there.
Easy-to-Install Bed Rails
If you’re going for a rugged and beefy look for your Ford truck, then bed rails might just do the trick. Coming in at number three on our list are the Magnum Bed Rails.
We know what you’re thinking. You don’t want to have to drill into the body of your truck, right? We don’t blame ya.
The great thing about these bed rails is that they install without needing to drill into your truck. Plus, they come in two different finishes. While we are really digging matte black trends, you can also get these rails in a milled finish.
Beef Up Your Front End with a Brushguard
The Barricade Brush guard is number four on our list – and for good reason. Adding a brush guard to the front end of your Ford truck isn’t just to protect your vehicle. A brush guard will take your truck from blah to bold in only a few hours. The installation is simple enough that you can install it yourself, so you don’t need to worry about spending money on pro installation.
Cut Through the Darkness with an LED Light Bar
And last but not least, an LED light bar is our final recommendation for the top five must-have accessories for your Ford truck. The range of aftermarket lighting accessories for your truck is nearly limitless.
However, one of our favorites is the 52” Double Row LED light bar. This light bar consumes 100 3W high performance LEDs to produce over 20,000, insanely bright lumens. This light bar use corrosion resistant die cast aluminum, along with high impact polycarbonate that resists yellowing. Installation is simple and can be done in an afternoon for a quick and easy way to amp up the style of your truck with minimum effort.
