A truck is a conveyance that is useful for transporting goods and passengers between points. Your truck is your workplace. It’s your recreation centre. It’s your second home.
And that’s why we like to put our own personal stamp on the truck’s appearance, to make it more our own.
Just be careful. Some of the accessories that you love about your truck can actually age faster than the truck itself, especially if they’re not built to withstand harsh Winnipeg weather. Next time you walk around your truck, take a good hard look at your accessory equipment.
Are any items loose, or do they show any signs of degrading? If you’ve got box rails, running boards, or steps, check to make sure they’re firmly affixed. If anything comes loose from your truck out on the roads, it can become a hazardous missile. Someone could be hurt, and even if a piece that falls from your truck does no damage, you could be charged.
Pay special attention to anything that can be caught by the wind, or is prone to ice buildup. Mud flaps can easily pull away from the body, and a ripped tonneau cover can be taken completely away by a strong wind.
If any of your accessories looks suspicious to you, visit Carlson Truck Outfitters at 1392c Regent Avenue in Winnipeg. Our professional staff knows how things should be, and we can help you determine if there’s a problem with your equipment, and help you put it right.
