Save Fuel and Wear and Tear on Your Truck’s Interior

We’re busy, and we tend to keep our trucks that way, too.

The best thing about a pickup is its capacity to carry stuff.  Sometimes, though, it’s easy to abuse that capability.  It’s nice to have things handy when you need them, but we often carry unused items for days or weeks at a time.  This extra weight costs us in fuel, and the extra items rolling around in the box or in the interior of the truck have the potential to damage our trucks or worse, become dangerous in the event of an accident.

We all need to remember to remove unneeded items from our trucks when we’re done with them, and make sure we properly secure all of our truck cargo.

For your truck’s protection, you can visit Carlson Truck Outfitters in Winnipeg and check out a full line of equipment designed to keep your truck at its best, no matter what cargo you’re carrying. The Full Metal Jacket Spray-In bed liner will protect the bed from scratches and abrasion, a full line of bed covers from brands like TruXedo, Bakflip, and Retrax, floor protection from Weathertech and an assortment of box rails, tie downs, and seat covers will help protect your truck and its occupants no matter what you’re hauling.
But the best advice we can get when it comes to moving cargo is that we should only carry those items that we need.
