While all makes and models are welcome, club nights are ruling the summer, including back-to-back Fabulous 50′s Ford Club of Manitoba nights through the remainder of July (20th and 27th’).

So shine up your baby, and bring her down.  Grab some grub from our Co-Sponsors at Pony Corral Restaurant and Bar, and have a look at some fabulous cars.

While you’re there, you might bet some ideas for improvements for your own truck.  Whenever you’re looking for accessories to make your truck more beautiful and functional, remember Carlson Truck Outfitters, 155 Fennell St. in Winnipeg.

Of course we’ll be at the show, because we love your truck almost as much as you do!

Floor Protection by WeatherTech

If you’ve ever looked underneath an old rusty pickup truck, you’ve probably seen that the nastiest damage to the vehicle is to the floor on the driver’s side.

This section of the floor doesn’t rust because water, grime and salt attack it from the bottom. The assault comes from the top.

We often say that we work our trucks. This isn’t really true. Our trucks take us and our stuff to places we work. We are always getting in and out of them, and in a get-it-done world, we don’t always take the time to wipe our feet.

Protecting your trucks floor is serious business. A ruined carpet and a rusty floor can be an indication of other problems brought on by lack of care, and can significantly lower the resale value of a vehicle.

Carlson Truck Outfitters is proud to offer WeatherTech FloorLiners to combat the unique hazards that harsh Manitoba winters bring to your trucks floor. These aren’t a “one size” solution. Each one has been DigitalFit – which means that the interior of your truck model has been measured with a laser, and the FloorLiner manufactured to those specifications.
This USA manufactured product has specially engineered channels that route water and debris into an easily emptied reservoir, never coming into contact with your vehicle’s carpet or vulnerable floor surface.

Protect your truck, and your investment, without slowing down to wipe your feet. WeatherTech FloorLiners are just one of the many quality accessories available from Carlson Truck Outfitters. Come on down and have a look, and feel free to leave your shoes on.
