If you're a new owner of Ford's standard truck, the F150, you probably don't know much about the different accessories that are created to increase its functionality, protection and even aesthetic appeal. If your truck is the model for this year, here are 2012 Ford F150 accessories, urban motoring shops list as the most in demand.
Tonneau covers' price is rather steep but they are musts for a lot of F150 owners, for these accessories protect the exposed bed (box) at the back of the truck from elements like rainwater and snow. Also, it's a good item to have to completely cover and protect items being transported on a bad weather day. These covers are built from ABS plastic, have precision fit and are very durable. They are also lightweight and easy to remove.
For something much cheaper and ideal for new owners who are still not used to driving a big truck, Bumper Mounted Warning Sensors by Echomaster-Reverse is a highly useful tool. When the truck is in reverse, the ultra-sonic sensors scan the space behind the truck; it has about 7 feet of coverage behind the truck. This lessens accidents when it's hard to gauge the amount of space available especially when parking.
Mud flaps are also quite in demand since most owners of the F150 have a very active lifestyle and tackle difficult terrains through any kind of weather. Mudflaps are helpful in preventing thick mud from building up under the truck. There are many kinds at varying prices and they can be placed over the tires or on the back bumper.
Racks and carriers are also popular despite the size of the truck bed. Many feel that it offers better protection for certain cargo like surfboards, bikes and other irregularly-shaped items that will just otherwise slide freely in the truck bed.
Bug shields are for, of course, deflecting bugs. Though many claim they are not particularly efficient for that purpose since a lot of bugs are really small, but for bigger insects like bees, these bug shields work superbly. These accessories actually work particularly well, however, as rock guards for the windshield and hood.
Consoles and organizers are quite functional and economical. They work really well in keeping small items organized and in place.
There are actually still so many other accessories for the 2012 Ford F150 and they all improve the functionality and protection of the truck. Just think of the ones that you really need to ensure a hassle-free, pleasant driving/riding experience all the time.
