Noise Reduction

Isn’t it absolutely peaceful to drive your truck on a straight smooth road with the good ol’ truck’s vibration lightly humming in the background? But sometimes your peaceful journey can be disrupted by rattling and other unfriendly noises; and this can really annoy and even worry you about what is wrong with your truck.

Sometimes the noise may be because of a serious defect in the body or the engine and has to be fixed by an expert; however, most of the time the unwanted sounds your truck produces are because of the aging process. With time, the bed of the truck wears out and becomes thin. Hence, loose objects in the truck’s bed which move as you drive along, such as tool boxes or cargo and even the drop-in panel bang and clang, echoing loudly.

In order to prevent the sounds from disturbing you, you should keep your drop-in bed liner well maintained. Go for a Full Metal Jacket™ because it comprises of 100% pure polyurea which provides the strongest and most flexible protection. It recovers the loss that your truck’s bed has gone through due to aging, rusting, denting and other sorts of damages by adding a metallic protective coating which becomes part of the bed itself. The Full Metal Jacket™ makes the truck-bed as good as new and absorbs all unwanted clanging, rattling or banging.

If you’d like to get rid of the noises your truck makes at its back you should consult with the experts of Full Metal Jacket™, Carlson Truck Outfitters. We operate in Winnipeg, Manitoba and offer you durable and long-lasting jackets for your truck.

Full Metal Holiday Gifts?

We all have that person in our lives – the one we care about enough to ponder a gift for during the holiday season in Winnipeg.

Maybe it’s your brother-in-law, a close friend or even your boss (especially if you’re going to be angling for a raise come 2012).

Gifts, however, are not an easy purchase. Some may think a bottle of wine, a box of chocolates or a floral arrangement may be the perfect gift for the someone in your life who deserves recognition, those aren’t always the most appreciated presents. Sure, you’ll get a thank you on-site, but they may go home thinking, “another box of Turtles from Joe.”

So instead of getting a gift that will either be consumed or forgotten, consider taking a different route (if you can pardon the pun) and provide your cohort with a gift they will truly appreciate – a new truck lining or accessory.

Now I know what you’re thinking – will someone have the same smile on their face as they would with a restaurant gift certificate? The answer is quite possibly.

Many people today are not wanting yet another snowglobe or similar knick-knack that will sit in their office for three months, then be moved to storage and later a garage sale. Instead, these individuals crave something practical – a piece that helps them in their everyday lives.

And what could be a more practical gift than one that helps improve the life of their truck? After all, you know yourself that a bit of money spent now can save you thousands down the road.

All Weather Truck Beds – Do Full Metal Jackets™ Really Help?

A few years go down the lane and you start treating your truck without the respect it deserves. It is important to take care of its sensitivities which if ignored, might lead to big disasters. Just like the engine, the body too needs frequent maintenance that keeps the truck working day in and day out. Especially the truck bed which is the most important part of the vehicle because of the purpose it serves.

As time passes, the truck bed faces a number of factors which decrease its strength and efficiency such as dents, scratches, rust, abrasions and wearing out with age. Also, climate conditions affect truck beds a lot; dry weather makes it easier for scratches to take place on truck beds, frequently wet weather may accelerate the rusting process while freezing temperatures may make it more prone to dents. These factors make it difficult for the person handling the truck to carry out tasks in an optimal way because of the deteriorating condition of the truck bed.

Smart truck owners keep administering cutting-edge technological solutions to their truck beds such as the Full Metal Jacket™ in order to keep it running flawlessly throughout the year. FMJ™ is the latest innovation in the automobile industry that guards truck beds against all sorts of bad weather including heavy rainfall and scorching heat while following the original contours of your truck bed and does not make you lose out on any cargo space.
