Trucks Built “Like a Rock” – We Stock Accessories for Chevrolet/GMC Trucks

At Carlson Truck Outfitters, we know pickup trucks. We know them because we like them, and because we see more of them than almost anyone else. And what we’ve been seeing lately is evidence that many people in Manitoba are choosing Chevrolet and GMC as their go-to trucks.

As a result, we’ve become very knowledgeable about the products and services available to GM owners. We can fit you with a bed cover, mud flaps, seat covers or just about any other accessory you might want, and we know how to find and install the ones with the best fit to complement your specific truck.

Whether it’s a Silverado or a Colorado, a Canyon, Avalanche or Sierra, Carlson Truck Outfitters can protect your investment in your vehicle with a Full Metal Jacket spray-in bed liner, a one-step polyurea treatment which bonds to the metal box of your truck and forms a layer of protection that is impervious to moisture, inhibits rust and acts as a barrier against the physical damage that pickup trucks are sure to sustain.

No matter what brand of truck you choose to drive, we understand why you drive it and what you use it for. We can provide a full line of accessories and services that can help you maintain its value and reduce troubles down the road, while making it look and perform at its peak today. At Carlson Truck Outfitters, we know what Winnipeg wants when it comes to truck accessories.

TruXedo Tonneau Covers – Protection in Style

For pickup owners, the soft bed (or tonneau) cover sometimes carries the stigma of early models.  Some of the old style, fabric-backed vinyl bed covers that snapped over top of the pickup box were difficult to use and many of them were poorly made and wore out quickly.

Fortunately, the tonneau cover has been the subject of decades of innovation, because they’re a truly convenient way to cover the box of your truck.  Carlson Truck Outfitters has a wide array of tonneau cover options, including the excellent TruXedo line of soft covers that has helped revolutionize the product category.

Each TruXedo cover features a sleek, low profile appearance, because all of the mounting gear is inside the box, hidden from view by the cover itself.  The corners and sides of the cover, which are the traditional access points for moisture, are specially sealed to keep your cargo dry and your pickup’s bed protected.  There’s a one-finger latch system for easy access to the things you need, when you need them.  And, best of all the TruXedo tonneau cover features is a patented automatic tension control system, which will preserve the slick look of the cover while making it easier to open and close.

TruXedo offers several different styles of soft tonneau covers, including the innovative TruXedo Deuce, the first soft roll-up bed cover that also flips open, allowing you greater flexibility in accessing your cargo.  It’s the only soft roll-up that allows you to open the front only, so you can more quickly access tool boxes and other cargo you keep directly behind the cab.

TruXedo tonneau bed covers are available at Carlson Truck Outfitters in Winnipeg.  You can see them in our showroom, and as with all the products we sell, installation is available.

Why Do You Need Seat Covers in Your Truck?

The part of your truck that you have most contact with, day in and day out is the front seat.

Your truck’s seats do more than give you a place to put your posterior; they are an integral part its safety system and one of the best indicators of the quality of a truck on the resale market.

We’re all guilty of it.  We jump into our trucks after a long day at work, when our clothes are dirty, our hands are greasy and there’s a chance we have tools on our belts or in our pockets.  The result, if we don’t make sure to take some kind of protective measure, is a front seat that looks ten years older than the rest of the truck.

The passenger seats, too, are susceptible to damage.  Very often, we’ll use them as a kind of auxiliary tool storage.  We don’t clean up until the job is finished, and by then, the damage can be done.  If you do any of these things, or have children or dogs that occupy the passenger compartment of your truck regularly, you need seat covers.

A good set of seat covers will look fantastic when they’re on your truck, and they’ll make sure that the upholstery in your truck is protected, which means that it will last longer and preserve your vehicle’s value.

Carlson Truck Outfitters has one of Winnipeg’s best selections of seat covers for all makes of pickups, in a wide array of colours.  Come on down and let us help you keep your vehicle looking good while it works hard for you.
