8 Must-Have Truck Accessories

8 Must-Have Truck Accessories

If you prefer roads that actually start where the blacktop ends, then you better have a vehicle that is extra-tough, durable and can handle whatever you decide throw at it.

Let's face it. Slinging mud, kicking up gravel and busting through brush, briars and overhanging limbs requires an off-road beast-mobile, not some high-class luxury wagon. You need to be able to conquer and dominate swampy sinkholes, deep-pitted ruts and steep rocky inclines without any doubts or fears.

You can't be worried about getting stuck or dealing with scratches, dings and dents after a backwoods adventure. Check out these eight must-have truck accessories.

Custom Seat Covers

Hatchie Bottom Armour Suede seat covers are made from an automotive grade upholstery fabric that incorporates state of the art micro-suede construction. This 11-ounce material is ultra-lightweight, super comfortable and easy to install. Plus, it's water-resistant and contains a special UV treatment, which provides added protection against everyday spills and long-term damage from the sun. Available in Mossy Oak and Realtree camo patterns.

Price: $249.99

Perfectly Fitting Floor Mats

All dirt-road enthusiasts and mud-hole addicts need some serious floor and carpet protection, too. Husky Liners' top-of-the-line X-act Contour Floor Liners are actually comfortable to your feet because they are soft rather than most others, which are rigid. They fit carpeted or vinyl flooring to a T. You can go to huskyliners.com, answer a few questions and order a custom fit for your specific vehicle.

Price: $99 for two front liners for a 2014 Ford F350

Line-X Platinum Bed-Liners

You know that carrying tree stands, canoes, coolers, dog boxes and everything else will put your bed paint job through the wringer. Line-X developed their spray-on bed liners years ago, but now they have a new platinum edition that is 300 percent. It's guaranteed not to crack, bubble or flake for the life of your truck, and it will handle anything you can throw in it.

Price: $495 for the regular finish; $645 for dual cab

Line-X Body Armour

Wouldn't it be nice if there was some kind of magic formula you could simply rub on your truck to keep it scratch and dent free? Well, the folks at Line-X have actually done just that with Body Armour. This innovative, quick-drying coating provides a strong skin that can be applied to any part — or all — of your vehicle including the rims. It's a bit heavier than traditional automotive paints, and adds about 50-75 pounds to your vehicle. It really is revolutionary and can transform your vehicle into an off-road tank.

Price: $6,000-$9,000 for dual cab

Ruff Riderz Fender Flares

All it takes is a few trips to the mountains or back in the sticks to completely cover your fenders with a coating of dents, dings, marks and scratches. You can shield vulnerable areas with Stampede's new Ruff Riderz fender flares. They have an aggressive bolted-on look and are constructed from a super tough tri-blend material that can handle anything the road dishes out. Color options include standard black or your favorite camouflage pattern.

Price: $769 for a 2014 Chevy Silverado set of four Mossy Oak New Breakup

Side-Wind Deflectors

Without question, Stampede's Side-Wind Deflectors make a cool addition to any off-road vehicle. These innovative accessories enable you to safely ventilate your interior without letting in rain or much else. The aerodynamic body style of the deflectors channels airflow around the outside edge and creates a small low-pressure area underneath it. This generates suction to prevent strong wind from entering the cab of your vehicle, but still draws stale air completely out. Smoke, chrome and camo options.

Price: $96.76 for a set of four

Ultimate Bull Bar

It adds some extra front-end protection to your 4WD, especially if you plan on driving to hell and back. The Westin Ultimate Bull Bar will definitely help safeguard your grill, and give your truck that mean and aggressive off-road appearance. This heavy-duty accessory is manufactured from 3-inch diameter tubing and offers maximum ground clearance. You can choose from a chrome plated stainless steel finish with a lifetime warranty, or a black powder-coat finish that boasts a five-year warranty.

Price: $285-$375

Bushwacker's Bedrail Caps

Bedrail caps shield the top of your truck's bed from scratches and dents that you will get from everyday hauling and use. A pair of Ultimate Diamond Backs from Bushwacker will get the job done and add some rough-and-tough country charm. These are CAD engineered for a perfect fit, install in minutes and require no power-tools or drilling. You'll get 100 percent UV protection and an unbeatable lifetime warranty.

Price: $99
