Best Vehicles for Towing

My name is Louis Alexander, and I want to thank you for stopping by my website. I have an active family that consists of my wife Janice, our three children, two dogs, three horses, and me. We needed not only a truck that could tow, but also one that would comfortably seat my family. We are on the road for many hours when traveling to horse shows or on camping trips. We needed a new vehicle. One that would be capable of towing our horse trailer and travel trailer. I did a great deal of research online before venturing out to test drive trucks. I learned a lot about tow capabilities and capacities. I also discovered some differences between trucks that ran on diesel and gasoline. I’m going to share some of the information I found out about trucks and hope you find it of value.

Tips For Customizing The Toughest Four Wheel Drive Truck

Automotive Blog

The truck you drive plays a huge role in the impression you on people around you, whether you know them or not. If you drive a four wheel drive pickup truck, you most likely know how driving up in a tough looking, customized truck turns heads in a crowd of people. When it comes to four wheeling and mud bogging, nothing is better than having the truck that not only looks good, but also produces tough performance as well.

Packing The Stacks

Some customized four wheel drive trucks look great with tall exhaust stacks in the bed. Exhaust stacks are generally placed one on each side of the bed front, each one producing a billowing black cloud of smoke. The current fad in big tough trucks is the black cloud of smoke. The bigger and blacker the cloud, the tougher the truck is. Some trucks have begun to also place one large stack in the bed or in the hood for producing an even greater cloud of black smoke. Bear in mind, however, dual stacks help to improve performance or maintain stock performance while single stacks do neither.

Wheels That Make A Statement

Nothing looks quite like black machined wheels on a set of forty fours on a jacked up four wheel drive. The wheels you choose make a huge impact on the overall look of your truck. Many styles and colors are available for customizing your wheels. Remember to select a color that matches the colors of the paint job or bumpers. Choosing a color that is not included on the body could cause your truck to appear off balanced and cheap.

Lift Kits Are Essential For Making An Impression

Jacking up your truck can give it an intimidating look, especially if you have the entire truck customized with large chrome stacks and cool wheels. However, when making choices about jacking up your truck, remembering the difference between lift kit and a suspension kit is important. A lift kit does not include suspension benefits, only lifting the body up off the frame. A suspension kit replaces the suspension parts while also providing lift.

If You Plan To Get In The Mud

Adding an extended bumper from a company like Pacesetter Truck Caps & Accessories Inc across the front of your four wheel drive truck should be for more than just appearances. Adding a winch to the front of your truck can not only add to its tough look, it can also be a lifesaver when you or a mud bogging partner gets stuck in a mud hole up to the driver's windows. Adding a winch that can pull the weight of your own vehicle is a good idea for adding both class and functionality to your four wheel drive truck.
