I learned a lot studying this guide but what I heard that the most is that Chevy guys are much different then Ford guys. Chevy truck owners tend to have a great deal of pride in regards to their trucks (perhaps that is because so many come from Texas). Anyhow with this in mind they are extremely cautious when choosing accessories. So with all of this in mind we’ve narrowed down what we believe are the best five RAM truck accessories.
Accessory #1 – Louvered flow through tailgate. I was sort of amazed at how popular a leak through louvered tailgate actually is. It seems that Chevy men are concerned about gas mileage as much as anything? Nah I think they just enjoy the looks of this tailgate on a Chevy. Either way this tailgate does indeed help on gasoline mileage.
Accessory # 2 – Putco chrome trim. I agree this easy to put in addition does help the appearance of this truck. We are speaking about the Putco Chrome trim accessories like door handle trim, mirror covers latch covers and even the cool third brake addition. It actually takes minutes to add these cool chrome pieces to your truck and it does really change the appearance. Just be sure to wash everything with alcohol first before installing.
Accessory # 3 – Aggressive tires and wheels. Chevy owners aren’t bling oriented guys from what I see. These men are searching for something which makes their trucks seem more like a truck and much less like an oversized pimped out car so generally they stick to nearby stock sizes most commonly being 17 inch rims. From what I see some of the popular rims comprise Mickey Thompson and American Racing. Tires are often all mild or terrain mud terrains. The design of these wheels is usually simple but aggressive and many times is polished aluminum rather than chrome.
These are very popular accessories for Chevy owners. Generally they are set up to level the truck at front to help the overall look of the wheels seem exactly the same in all the wheel wells. Just a note ahead bumpers men they can be adjusted forward to help accommodate a somewhat lager tire. The biggest downfall with a Chevy truck is the little wheel wells and this limits drill dimensions and this si where the bumper alteration and leveling kit will help.
Somewhat different then Ford owners who lean toward the louvered appearance, Chevy owners ten to direct toward the chrome grills like the Putco grill. These grills often have round holes and actually increase the other chrome that these guys add to their own trucks. I must admit a Putco grill does look fine on a Chevy or GMC.
These are my top 5 Chevy truck accessories I see being sold. Each person is different but based on my observations the above accessories are extremely popular among Chevy owners. Watch for my article coming soon on Extreme Chevy truck accessories.
