5 Must-Have Truck Accessories

Your truck should be an extension of yourself. Customizing it is what helps makes it stand out. What you are planning to use your truck for, will affect the modifications and overall look of the vehicle. 

No matter how you plan to use your 4X4, BumperStock.com has a variety of must-have truck accessories that will not only make your vehicle look better but help give you an upper hand. Even if you don’t plan on doing major off-roading, the accessories on this list will help get the most from America’s favorite vehicle. 

We’ve put together a list of the top 5 must-have truck accessories for your truck in 2021. In our eyes, a build is never complete, but rather an ongoing project, just don’t tell your wife or girlfriend that.  

Tonneau Covers 

A truck’s bed is essentially a big trunk. It's only right that should be able to keep certain contents secure. Tonneau covers come in several designs that allow you to have exactly what you want and nothing you don’t. 

The solid, one-piece Tonneau covers are usually made from fiberglass and can be custom painted to match the color of your truck. They were popular years ago on trucks, and have been recently making a strong comeback.

Nowadays, soft top tonneau covers are the most popular thanks to their ability to not only help keep your contents dry but also by keeping prying eyes and hands at bay. Keeping your tools and another equipment safe is crucial if you want to keep getting to work the next day.

Aftermarket Bumpers 

Aftermarket bumpers are one of the most important and best-looking upgrades a truck or Jeep can receive next to wheels and/or suspension. At first, aftermarket bumpers were a purely functional upgrade used by hard-working ranchers and farmers. 

But, like with anything, things have evolved. Nowadays, a quality aftermarket bumper like the ones sold on BumperStock.com is not only functional but will also help your truck look like nothing else currently on the road. 

We have everything from simple, low-profile bumpers meant to look at lowkey as possible to models like the Road Armor Titan II, which turns your front end into a literal battering ram. 

Are some bumpers overkill? Sure! But if you are really into modifying your truck, there is nothing better than adding a quality aftermarket truck bumper from BumperStock.com

Winches 

Wheels, tires, and bumpers cant be considered a complete truck “build” in our eyes. A custom truck is made up of several components and is never really done. Some owners will call a build complete after basic upgrades. But those are the same people that get left behind on the trails, literally.

A good quality winch is a necessity if you want to go anywhere that doesn’t involve a paved road. For the price, it is the best form of insurance. A winch doesn’t get used every day, but when you need it, you’ll be glad you have one. 

The trails are unpredictable, and having a way to get out of trouble easily is crucial. BumperStock offers a wide variety of winches from simple and lightweight to heavy-duty 16,000 lbs. ones for even the biggest and heaviest off-road trucks!

Light Bars 

Lightbars are not only useful but have become a must-have accessory for anyone who customizes trucks. Even though headlight technology is getting better, adding a high-quality lightbar to your setup will help illuminate dark nights that much better. 

We, here at BumperStock.com have a wide variety of LED light bars ranging from small 3” cube lights and going to full, wrap-around ones that go across the entire front end of your truck. Recently, aftermarket truck bumper manufacturers have incorporated light bars right inside each unit. If that is not badass, we don’t know what is! 

Even if you didn’t buy a bumper with an integrated lightbar, we have you covered. Our wide selection of available lightbars is sure to give you exactly the style and type to make your truck look unique functional. 

Roof Racks/Headache Racks 

Sometimes, even the room of a big Jeep or SUV isn’t enough. This is where a roof fack comes in. Even work trucks will have a roof rack built in their headache racks for added storage. Big or oddly shaped items will just not fit in the bed or trunk of a vehicle. 

Luckily, truck owners can just put oddly shaped items in the bed or box. If that is not long enough, they can be easily put up on the headache racks. While we agree that headache racks don’t look the best in certain cases, it is a necessary evil for those who use their trucks are they were initially designed. 

Roof racks have been used on cars for decades, so they are nothing new. But getting a good quality roof rack can be the difference between keeping your stuff dry and secure or just helping mother nature speed up the aging process. 


If you plan to get a roof rack, make sure you put it to good use to increase MPG’s. the good news is that they can be easily taken off when not in use. On top of that, they will increase the height and center of gravity of a vehicle. So, an already lifted 4X4 that may have had trouble getting into underground parking lots, for example, will only have a harder time now.
