You’ve waited patiently (or not so patiently) for summer’s arrival, and now that it’s here you can’t wait to get out on the road. But, before you rush into your summer plans, take time to make sure your car is up to the challenge. You want it to handle the pressures of road travel with ease and make you look good while doing it. Here are three ways to upgrade your car for the best ever post-college road trip.
- Add Retractable StepsYour lifted truck demands attention, but it’s not always easy to get into it (especially after an epic day of rock climbing or beach hopping). Conserve your energy for all the summer activities you want to do by installing retractable truck steps. Some retractable steps are intended for the driver’s side, while others are made to fit just the passenger side of your truck.
- Upgrade Your WheelsHeavy travel demands healthy tires, so if your current tires don’t make the cut, it’s time to upgrade. Why not improve your vehicle’s looks and performance at the same time by choosing attractive tire and wheel packages that will get you where you want to go in style? You’ll save money and completely change the look of your vehicle. Black steel wheels are incredibly popular right now and look great with any paint color.
- Get a Lift KitIf you’re planning to do any off-roading this year, a lift kit is essential. Even if you aren’t planning to go off-road, a lift kit can make your truck or Jeep look better. Keep in mind that raising your vehicle more than 3 inches will likely affect the wheelbase. So, purchase your new tires after you decide what lift kit to buy. That way you’ll be able to choose the right tire size for the amount of lift you have.
These three upgrades will take your road trip from standard to epic. To find retractable truck steps, wheels and lift kits, check out the impressive selection at 4 Wheel Parts.
