SUV’s are the family workhorse. Short for Sport Utility Vehicle, they have the space to haul sports equipment, kids and pets, extended family, and more. SUV’s are often two-wheel drive and they never leave the pavement. Where’s the sport in that? Are you ready to stand out from the crowd and put some fun in your summer drive? Here are 4 upgrades that can make the family hauler a cool ride.
Wheels are one of the first things people notice about a truck. Less expensive than alloy, steel wheels are tough. They handle rocks and debris and can be fixed easily. With a range of bolt patterns available and a choice between a matte and gloss finish, these wheels give your ride a fierce look.
Retractable Running Boards
If you have installed a lift kit, your SUV is already taking on a monster truck level of cool. However, hauling yourself in and out of the cab gets old fast. Upgrade the appearance and safety factor by adding retractable steps for lifted trucks. They snug up against the frame for a rugged look when the door is closed and extend for entry and egress ease when the door is open.
Shocks may not get the same level of attention that the wheels and running boards do, but when it comes to performance, nothing else compares. They offer a smoother ride, better vehicle stability and improved control, especially in uneven or inconsistent surface conditions.
Audio and Video Upgrades
Upgrade the quality of your tunes by replacing the factory radio and speakers with aftermarket sound bars and pods. Bring your rig into the 21st Century with high-definition navigation systems and backup cameras. Full-color displays, hands-free calling and smartphone connections boost the summer road-trip fun.
