Best Truck Equipment: Upgrade Your Accessories
Give your truck an upgrade—and enhance your comfort—with these top truck accessories
This tiny, high-tech device provides all the vehicle and driver alerts you need. Its standout feature is that it’s an active GPS tracker that doesn't have a monthly fee.
The GPS tracker does not use a battery and plugs directly into the truck’s OBD-11 port. There's no need to recharge it, so maintenance is virtually nonexistent. It accesses a 3G mobile data network and easily connects to your tablet device or laptop.
The device only updates after three minutes. If you're trying to monitor your commercial trucks, you'll have a difficult time, as the company’s website lacks a map or a route as the main menu tab.
If you have been looking for a basic radio with no frills that get the job done, look no further. This CB radio is reliable and is perfect for commercial and off-road usage.
The radio has all the functions of its predecessor, the Uniden PRO510XL, but comes with additional features, like PA capabilities and RF gain. The radio is designed to last and withstands even the toughest terrain. Its compact size makes it undetectable—if you want it to be.
Its reception isn't the best, and it may miss a few transmissions. Its sound quality is lacking, and it doesn’t have a scanner. A scanner lets you monitor different channels and find the most interesting ones.
This 12-volt stove that looks like a lunch box can be used to cook food in a truck. Plug it into any 12v lighter-type socket, and it will heat your food to 300 degrees.
This portable stove is perfect for warming foods like burritos, soups, and hot pockets on the go. It is made of ABS plastic and has a latching front to ensure all your food stays inside. It is well insulated and keeps food warm while its exterior stays cool.
There is no way to know how hot it is because the stove lacks an indicator showing the temperature. If you forget to pull the cable out of the socket, it may drain your truck’s battery.
