Full Metal Jacket Spray-in bedliners

The Road TripAt Carlson Truck Outfitters we are the specialists when installing the Full Metal Jacket spray-in box liner.

We spend the time properly preparing your truck to ensure the spray-in linings are guaranteed to last the life of the truck. Our Full metal jacket-C is a 100% pure polyurea bedliner coating  and is formulated with high pigment loading as well as the Ultra Violet absorbers and inhibitors to enhance color stability. It can be colour coated and it will not peel.

The Road Trip with Micheal Clark did a Special Project Edition: The Full Metal Jacket Spray-In Box Liner with Carlson Truck Outfitters very own, Dave Conlin. Check out the video here to get the full installation details.

The Road Trip is the only Manitoba automotive talk show and they are online and tune-in every Saturday from 6pm – 8pm on 680 CJOB.

Ordering From Out of Town

At Carlson Truck Outfitters, we love trucks. And we know how frustrating it can be to be unable to find that perfect accessory, the one that says, “This truck is mine.”

If you live in rural Manitoba, you might find that your options for pickup truck accessories are somewhat limited.  We love the traditional “parts and tires” stores too, but they’re selling everything from antifreeze to road salt, and likely don’t have a staff with the same specialized knowledge that a dedicated truck outfitter like Carlson does.

We know we have the best products and the most knowledgeable staff, because truck outfitting is all we do.  Unlike an online store, our staff is made up of real people who are passionate about the products we sell, and the trucks we install them on.

That’s why we do our best to make it easier for truck owners from outside of town to experience the difference a specialty retailer can make in personalizing your truck.  We have Saturday appointments available, and have moved our shop to the south end of the city, making it easier to access from the highway and from communities out that way.

Our website allows you to have a look at the variety of accessories that we sell, keeps you up-to-date with regard to our specials, and puts you in contact with our knowledgeable staff, who are always willing to talk to you about your truck.

Whether you call, email, or just drop in at our new location, – 155 Fennell St. in Winnipeg, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for at Carlson Truck Outfitters.  If you tell us what you need, we’ll do our best to make sure you get it.

Schedule a Visit to Carlson Truck Outfitters on Saturday

It can be hard to find the right accessories for your pickup truck, especially here on the Prairies, where there isn’t exactly a truck outfitter on every streetcorner.

You can always order from the Internet.  The only problem is that, since you can’t actually see the accessory you are ordering, or look the seller in the eye and gauge their honesty, you might find you don’t get what you want or pay for.

That’s why Carlson Truck Outfitters in Winnipeg has Saturday appointments available.  If you live a little further afield, somewhere like Steinbach or Winkler, it might not be easy to get here during the week.  If you call ahead, you can be sure that someone will be here on Saturday to help you choose from our wide array of truck accessories, give you advice and arrange installation service.

Don’t forget the Full Metal Jacket Spray-In bedliner – it’s a must for hardworking trucks, and it’s a product you simply can’t get from an online retailer.

Experience first hand Carlson Truck Outfitters full line of add-ons for your truck – everything from mud flaps to floor mats to head and taillight lenses.  Our staff is extremely knowledgeable, and our installation crew knows their stuff.  There’s a reason that Carlson Truck Outfitters is Winnipeg’s most reputable source of truck accessories.

Note that we are at a new location – 155 Fennell St. in Winnipeg.  To make an appointment to see us on Saturday call (204) 669-5249.

We’re Up and Running on Fennell!

Carlson Truck Outfitters new spray-in bedliner boothIf you’ve been wondering when Carlson Truck Outfitters would be starting our spray-in bedliner service from our new location at 155 Fennell St. in Winnipeg, the answer is we’re way ahead of you!

We’re happy to say that we’re already back up and running with expert truckbed lining services at our new location. As you can see to the left, we’ve got Winnipeg trucks already coming into our shop (as well as a few from outside the perimeter!).

We thank all of our loyal customers who have followed us to our new location and would like to take this opportunity to welcome those who are visiting us for the first time.

We’ll have more updates for you in the coming weeks!

Is It Time for a New Truck?

As truck owners, we get very attached to our vehicles.

Much more than car owners, you’re more likely to get a truck owner having more of that almost indescribable connection with their four wheels. They’ll spend more time adding accessories and invest more dollars in protection (such as a truck bed lining).

There’s good reason for this – a truck is more than just driving to and from work or taking kids to hockey practice. Your truck often is your office, gets called upon when neighbours need help with a project

That’s why it’s hard to let go of your truck, when you know it’s time to trade it in. Maybe that rust spot on your bumper is growing or your brakes need to be replaced again, but eventually you’ll know when it’s time to replace… unlike our dear friend from Arlen…

(Apologies for the poor video quality, it’s the best we could find on YouTube.)

Saying goodbye to your truck can definitely be hard, we won’t deny that – but think of the new adventures that await you with your new ride – A whole new set of tires to get dirty, a body that’s screaming for some highway dominance and a bed that’s ready to haul anything you throw at it.

If you’re investing in a new truck this year, Carlson Truck Outfitters is ready to start your new cycle off with a bang. Call us today to book an appointment. If nothing else, we’d like to see your new pride and joy.

Hauled Your Kid To College? Check Your Truckbed!

Ahh September. The time when kids head back to school. Bliss returns for parents everywhere.

Well, for most that is.

You see, taking your kids to university can mean a lot of hauling. For students from rural Manitoba, this may mean dorm life ahead at the University of Manitoba, the University of Winnipeg or Brandon University; and if this was your kid, chances are you hauled their gear in your truckbed.

What does that mean? Potential ding-ups in your ride!

This is the unfortunate reality of dorm life. Little planning goes on in advance, and as such we’re not always 100% ready for it; so getting things done like protecting your truck with a proper truckbed liner (such as the Full Metal Jacket from Carlson Truck Outfitters) doesn’t always get priority.

We know the pains of going out on a job, whether it’s for work or for family, so we’re happy to help you if your ride has undergone a bit of a beating.

Don’t hesitate to book an appointment if you’re concerned about your truckbed. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

Summer’s Winding Down – Line Your Truckbed Now!

We had a summer?

Okay, it’s the usual joke in Winnipeg, but there is a measure of truth – this summer is going by too quickly. It seems like we’re destined for an early snowfall with everyone’s favourite Halloween costume, once again, being a parka.

This means that we’re headed for, in all likelihood, a rainy fall and a slushy winter. The salts kicked up, once laid down, can do major damage to your truck bed, let alone an unprotected bed can be subject to rusting.

Don’t leave your truck bed to chance with potentially bad weather conditions. Count on Carlson Truck Outfitters to give your truck the extra protection it needs as we head into September. Book your appointment now for our Full Metal Jacket treatment. Our work is guaranteed and you will not be disappointed.
