Accessories

  • Truck bed cover with rails: I’m about 95% sure I’d have one to at least keep rain of the hitch. Might be nice to have one with a lock for those days we stop at the store – on the way to the beach!
  • Tool box below the rails of truck: I’ve owned several and prefer one solid lid rather than two lids that have to be opened from individual sides of the truck.  I like silver metal rather than painted in terms of durability, however black may be an easy color to match with the truck and they can be painted.
  • Tire pressure monitoring: There is a good chance this will be an option already installed in the truck, however, as of 2015 I’m thinking one unit that handles both the truck and trailer tires would be best. I’m also wondering if Garman makes a GPS that can link to a system.
  • Air compressor: I’ll wait to find a good one when we are closer to the purchase date. Technology may change by then. Figure we will have at least a portable generator to run it, or just leave some air in the tanks in the event we do not have electricity. I’ve got this 135 psi 3.5 gallon unit now and if it holds up it may go with us. One attachment I like is the blow gun nozzle for blowing grass off my pants or dirt off stuff. Or dust from under the refrigerator and it’s cooling parts which we all should be doing.
  • Lube Ring: Goes between pin and hitch to stop scratches.
  • Edge Evolution Engine Tuner: Claims you get 2 mph better when towing with more power when you need it, 3 mph when not towing. I’ll bet they will void the trucks warranty.
  • Auxiliary fuel tank: Doubles as a tool box. The tank feeds into the main tank, no switches or gauges.  It keeps main tank full, once auxiliary tank is empty then the trucks fuel gauge starts down.
  • Portable Power Pack: Used to jump start a vehicle and charge devices. Bought one in 2016 and it’s worth the $70.
  • Powerbuilt Step: Light weight step that hangs on a tire so you can reach inside the bed of a truck.
