new-truckWhen you are looking for trucks to purchase, another important factor to consider is the extras that are available, which not only personalise your truck but can also increase efficiency, comfort, and safety. There are many optional extras available for trucks from all manufacturers, and sometimes, choosing these extras is as important as choosing the truck. When you spend a lot of your time behind the wheel of your truck making a living, you want to feel comfortable and safe. Here are some of the optional extras that you should consider when looking to buy a new truck for sale.

Air Deflector

When you are looking to buy a new truck, the one optional extra that you should get is an air deflector to sit on top of the cabin.

It will pay for itself in the savings on fuel costs of the vehicle as well as make journey times faster. Best of all, an air deflector makes your truck look good!

Auxiliary Lamp Covers

These may seem like they are not very important, but these covers will help to protect the lamps whilst you are driving along the highways of and road networks of Australia. It is very easy for gravel and loose stones to be turned up by vehicles in front of you, and these can smash your auxiliary lamps. Fixing the lamps or buying new ones can be unwanted added expenses. Invest in lamp covers; they hardly break the bank. and they are a lot cheaper to replace than a new lamp unit for your truck.
