My Truck as a Reflection of Myself
If you are a truck fanatic like me, you’ve probably gone crazy on truck accessory purchases. One of my favorite things I’ve done is raise my truck. Every time I purchase a new truck I go out looking at leveling kits. Although I drive off-road a lot and enjoy camping trips, the truth is that I really don't lift just for better clearance; I enjoy having much larger tires. Here are some more accessories I love to buy:

There are several accessories I have purchased for the purpose of extending the life of my truck. One of them is a good truck liner. This is a great way to reduce the wear and tear on the bed of the truck.
I also like role-up bed covers because they are easy to install and allow you to easily retrieve items from the truck bed when you need them. I am also told that they help improve gas mileage. Bed covers come in assorted colors to complement the color of the truck, and they last for a quite a long time.
Bull Bars and Grill Guards
Regardless of whether you are off-roading or simply driving down the interstate, debris has a way finding and destroying the most delicate part of your grill. With a bull bar or a grill guard you can protect the grill and enhance the look of the ride. Some of them come with pre-drilled holes for mounting off-road lights.
Mud Flaps and Panels
Driving in the mountains in the mud or even down the highway during a rain storm can result in an unhappy ending if you don't have mud flaps. They not only protect the truck from mud but also from gravel and rocks that are kicked up by the tires. A good set of Mud Flaps will help keep the paint job shiny and protect the truck body from scratches and pockmarks.
Racks and Carriers
Other accessories that extend the transportation potential of your truck include various types of racks and carriers. If you transport bulky and heavy objects for work or fun, it is well worth getting the correct type of rack or carrier. For instance if you are a painter, you should invest in a ladder rack. Bike racks are also a good idea for bikers, naturally.
Regarding the inside of your vehicle, you may choose from a wide range of floor mats and cargo liners to help protect it from dirt, dust and the ravages of the weather and pets you may have. All of these items will help to keep your truck looking like new, enhance resale value and extend the life of your truck. Who knows, it may even help you look and feel better too.

The point of all of this is that I, like my truck, need constant care and maintenance. I want to meet a woman who can take care of me too. I want her to understand trucks like I do and use that to grow closer to me. That’s what I really want.
