Making your Toyota Tacoma look good in front of others is one thing but making it more functional than before is another story.
In this article, we’ll help you find the best accessories that’ll make your trusted 4×4 both looking bad ass and extremely useful for daily activities.
WHAT DO TACOMA OWNERS NEED?
When getting accessories for your Toyota Tacoma, these are the items that’ll give more bang for your buck:
HOW DO VENT VISORS WORK?
Vent visors are like small umbrellas placed on the sides of your vehicle windows. Their purpose is to “deflect” rain, heat, and wind so they don’t make their way inside. In other words, a portion of the elements simply slides off of them, even if your windows are a little open.
HOW DO FLOOR LINERS WORK?
Floor liners aren’t ordinary carpets. They’re the ones you put on top of them to serve as a layer of protection because they collect dirt, water, mud, and other debris before they reach your truck’s carpets.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FLOOR MATS AND FLOOR LINERS?
If there’s one thing floor mats and floor liners have in common, then that’s the fact they’re both layers of protection for your truck carpets. But in terms of design, quality, and other purposes, they have some distinctions including the price – the former starts at $100+ and the latter at $200+.
HOW DO DOOR SILL PROTECTORS WORK?
Door sill protectors are usually a strip of vinyl or rubber that you stick in between your truck’s door and body (where your feet are situated when stepping out). Their function is to prevent your truck’s body from acquiring scratches from the to-and-fro movements. They also serve as shields against the sudden impact of opening and closing the doors.
HOW DO GRILLE GUARDS WORK?
Grille guards for trucks are like bull bars because they absorb a portion of the impact from collisions to reduce fatalities as much as possible. However, unlike bull bars which only cover the center or middle part of your truck’s front end, the grille guards cover the entire front part and even extend to the headlights.
HOW DO TONNEAU COVERS WORK?
Tonneau covers are also called truck bed covers because they protect your valuable items on your truck bed against the elements, theft, and prying eyes. They vary mostly on the design and material where they’re made from, which obviously determine their price.
For instance, retractable tonneau covers are expensive because they’re a combination of vinyl and aluminum that make your items secure. Whereas the rollup varieties are inexpensive because of their light level of protection and availability even to older trucks models.
