2010 Truck Owner Gift Guide

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

We’ve rounded up some of the most popular gifts from years past as well as some new stuff we saw at this year’s SEMA show below. If you own a truck (or know someone who does), this is good place from some gift ideas.

Also, if you’re looking for a gift but don’t have a lot to spend, be sure to check out 10 Truck Gifts for About $50 Bucks on TacomaHQ.com.

WeatherTech Extreme Toyota Tundra Floor Mats

Extreme duty floor mats from WeatherTech are custom-molded to an exact fit, and they hold lots of gunk.

1. Heavy-duty floor mats for front and/or rear seats. Every year, heavy-duty¬†floor mats¬†are one of the best selling Toyota Tundra accessories available. WeatherTech Extreme-Duty Floor Liners are the top choice because they’re precisely matched to your truck, they have a “reservoir” that will trap dirt, mud, and water, and they extend right up to the door panel, so you can empty them out without spilling any gunk on the carpet.

If you want to spend a little less, check out Husky’s WeatherBeater mats which have many of the same features.

2. A truck bed tent. Truck bed camping gear is a nice gift for the adventurous truck owner. Setting up camp in your pickup means that you’ll always be sleeping on a level surface, not to mention that a truck tent is often easier to setup and take down than a conventional tent. There are two popular truck tent options – one from Napier Sportz and one from CampRight. Be sure to check out our Napier vs CampRight truck tent comparison for more info.

Hot for the holidays: Truck tents and air mattresses

3. Truck bed air mattress. If you already have a truck bed tent, you might want to consider an air mattress custom designed for your truck. TruckBedz sells an inexpensive (about $69) air mattress that works well for most trucks, but take a look at an AirBedz air mattress with air coil construction and an integrated, rechargeable pump. It’s a little more money (about $200 with optional inserts), but because wheel well inserts are available, it’s something you can use both in the truck and in the house.

Undercover Swing Case Tool Box

Note: Each case is sold separately

4. UnderCover Swing Toolbox. If you have a solid tonneau cover, your toolbox options are sort of limited. UnderCover has solved this problem with a nicely designed “swing case” toolbox that mounts behind the wheel well on either the driver side or passenger side and wings out over the tailgate. The construction quality is excellent, as is the security and ease of use. Cost? About $220.

LED truck bed lighting

LED truck bed lighting is low cost, durable, and the LED's will probably last longer than the truck itself. Kits start at about $40 and go up from there.

5. LED Truck Bed Lighting Kits. LED lighting is quickly becoming the new standard because of it’s low cost, light weight, and high durability. There are numerous truck-bed lighting kits available (see Anzo, Access, and TruXedo) that can provide a ton of lighting without getting in the way of cargo, LINK tonneau covers, etc. LED bed lighting kit prices start at $40.

6. Window Deflectors are one of the most popular truck accessories there are. WeatherTech, EGR, AVS, and Westin all offer wind deflectors for the front and rear windows of your truck. Prices range from $28 for a pair of front window deflectors to more than $200 for a set of chrome deflectors for all four doors.

The video above is for the Bakflip G2, but the Extang Trifectas work the same way.

7. Extang Trifecta Folding Tonneau cover. One of the most popular tonneau covers on the market, the Extang Trifecta is a lightweight folding aluminum frame wrapped in vinyl. Install and removal are very easy for one person to manage, and they can be folded up and secured to the bed as needed (see our Extang folding tonneau review for more info). The only downside to this product is security – take a look at the Bakflip G2 if you need a folding tonneau that will also protect your gear.
