Join us at World of Wheels in Winnipeg

As the winter months start to fade away, Winnipeggers emerge from their near-hibernation to re-join the active world, just in time for show season.

Tucked into our calendars just before the start of gala season in mid-spring, venues like the Winnipeg Convention Centre open their doors wide to the public for unique events based around relaxation and innovation. Melding the world of tradeshows and consumer expos, these events draw huge crowds with guests from local, national and even international businesses.

Arguably, the most popular of these events is the World of Wheels show, taking place just a couple weeks from now. Running from March 16 to 18, World of Wheels draws car guys and gals to see hot rods, celebrities like Billy the Exterminator and the latest innovations in the car and truck-buying market.

This year, Carlson Truck Outfitters is pleased to announce that we will be at World of Wheels. While we’re not just ready to divulge our secret plans for the show just yet, we can tell you that we’ll be there in a big way.

Stay tuned to the Carlson Truck Outfitter blog for more information on the coming days, but in the interim pick up your tickets for World of Wheels by visiting the show website here.

All about mudflaps

Your truck works.  It’s on call 24/7/365, regardless of what’s falling from the Winnipeg sky or splashing up from underneath.

Mudflaps perform a number of valuable tasks as your truck rolls through less-than-pleasant weather.

First, they protect the wheel wells, which are prone to rust.  The more water, salt, grit and mud we can keep out of these sensitive areas, the better.  They defend the painted surfaces of the rocker panels (beneath the doors) and the sides of the box where it’s most susceptible to rust, right behind the rear wheels.  By keeping stones and debris from chipping the paint and exposing the metal underneath to corrosion, mudflaps make trucks last longer.

They also protect other drivers; you won’t create nearly as much visibility-hampering spray, and the amount of gravel and other debris that gets kicked up as you drive will be greatly reduced.

Towing trailers and other objects presents specific needs, as they’ll follow your truck much more closely than other drivers.  Oversized mud flaps and special hitch-mounted guards are available.  If you tow anything you’d like to keep, this type of protection is a must.

Regardless of the season, it’s always time to be thinking about your truck.  Mudflaps are an essential tool in the preservation of your trucks appearance and value.

In recognition of their importance, Carlson Truck Outfitters in now offering a sale on not one brand, but our entire selection of Mudflaps.  Any pair for $74.99 including installation.  Because we love your truck almost as much as you do.

All Weather Truck Beds – Do Full Metal Jackets™ Really Help?

A few years go down the lane and you start treating your truck without the respect it deserves. It is important to take care of its sensitivities which if ignored, might lead to big disasters. Just like the engine, the body too needs frequent maintenance that keeps the truck working day in and day out. Especially the truck bed which is the most important part of the vehicle because of the purpose it serves.

As time passes, the truck bed faces a number of factors which decrease its strength and efficiency such as dents, scratches, rust, abrasions and wearing out with age. Also, climate conditions affect truck beds a lot; dry weather makes it easier for scratches to take place on truck beds, frequently wet weather may accelerate the rusting process while freezing temperatures may make it more prone to dents. These factors make it difficult for the person handling the truck to carry out tasks in an optimal way because of the deteriorating condition of the truck bed.

Smart truck owners keep administering cutting-edge technological solutions to their truck beds such as the Full Metal Jacket™ in order to keep it running flawlessly throughout the year. FMJ™ is the latest innovation in the automobile industry that guards truck beds against all sorts of bad weather including heavy rainfall and scorching heat while following the original contours of your truck bed and does not make you lose out on any cargo space. In short, Full Metal Jacket™ makes your truck bed as good as new! Is there anything more that a smart truck owner could ask for?

Using Polyurethane Truckbed Liners to Protect Your Ride

Polyurethane truckbed liners are one of the best improvement decisions not only to make your pickup truck, SUV, or other vehicle a better workhorse, but also a better ride as well. Truck beds see a lot of use and a lot of impacts over the years, as you move large objects in and out of them, carrying building materials or ponderous power tools, and you can’t slow your energetic pace of work to carefully place every object down as gently as a feather – and then see it tip over and damage the bed anyway.

A good truckbed liner offers you a high degree of impact protection for your vehicle’s carrying surfaces, greatly lessening the chances of damage. The sharp corner of a generator that would once have left a long gouge in the paint as you push the heavy object into the back of your vehicle – a gouge that would have been an open invitation to rust – will skim harmlessly over the tough surface of a truckbed coating and leave no mark.

A bundle of heavy pipes tossed over the tailgate during rapid cleanup at a construction site will no long pit the floor of your pickup bed with a series of small, curving dents, but will instead have the shock absorbed and diffused by the hard, rubbery polyurethane or polyurea.

Polyurethane truckbed liners don’t just make your truck better able to keep up with your pace of work or the gritty, masculine leisure activities you prefer, but they also make the ride more comfortable for you. A sturdy coating of liner, with its flexibility, resilience, and shock absorbing qualities (those same traits that make it so tough and lasting) also absorbs vibrations and makes loads less likely to shift by “gripping” them where they rest against the truckbed.

Rather than being jostled by the shocks of objects gyrating and bouncing around in the back of your truck, you will enjoy a smoother ride without sacrificing any of your pickup truck’s fortitude or dependability.
