5 Affordable Ways to Protect your Truck Bed and More

chevy bed accessories miami lakes automall

Chevy makes everything from high performance sports cars to fuel efficient green cars to SUVS and this year Chevy trucks are celebrating its 100th anniversary. With over 100 years of developing and designing trucks, Chevy offers three great truck models, and a number of accessories to help users get the most out of their truck. Don’t worry, these accessories won’t break the bank as they are all under $100!

Bed Mats and Bed Lines

Bed mats and bed liners protect the truck bed from scratches, dents and other damage from cargo and Chevy offers plenty of bed mat options for under $100. Mats and liners come in different materials including foam, rubber and plastic and some of them are sized exactly to the size of a truck bed and others are just made to cover a portion of the bed.

Tailgate Net/Cargo bars – Cargo bars and tailgate nets are built to keep cargo in place and from shifting/hitting the tailgate while the truck is in motion. Both can be easily attached on the back of the bed in front of the tailgate door.

Pocket Tie Downs – Pocket tie downs are another affordable way to keep the cargo in the bed in place while moving. These can be purchased for less than $50 a piece and they are installed on the top of the bed. Once they are in place, drivers can secure items with cargo ropes and cords that get attached to the tie downs.

Bed Caps – There are plenty of bed cap options for great prices. These help the bed rails stay protected from dings, dents and scratches.They go around the top of the bed rails and are generally plastic or aluminum.

Cargo Net – Cargo nets are similar to tailgate nets, but they cover the entirety of the bed. This product is great for those who entirely pack the bed up with cargo often.

Luke Bryan Chevy Suburban Concept For Huntin’ and Fishin’

Country music superstar Luke Bryan has teamed up with Chevrolet

In the last few years Chevy has been partnering up with people and companies to create concept vehicles built for certain activities and lifestyles. Last year Chevy partnered up with Hurley, a surf company, to make the Colorado Z71 Hurley Concept, a concept specifically designed for surfers. At SEMA this year, Chevy introduced the Luke Bryan Suburban and it is designed for people that love country music, as well as fishing and hunting.

The exterior of the vehicle has a couple features one might expect, like camouflage graphics and orange accents, on a truck built for hunting, and some features, like Huntin’, Fishin;’ and Lovin’ Everyday exterior badges, that have never been seen on a vehicle before. The Luke Bryan Suburban also has bronze and dark carbon accents and a liftgate which has been re-engineered to swinger outward (not upward) according to One Country.

Since some of the best hunting spots are off the beaten path, the Luke Bryan Suburban concept has some features that make it a little more off-road capable. Off-road features include a lower skid plate extension and a six-inch lift suspension. The Suburban concept also has 22-inch wheels, dual tip exhaust, and a 8,000-pound towing capacity, which is plenty of weight to tow a boat for a fishing trip or a trailer full of four wheelers for hunting.
