So, you’ve decided to buy a 2022 truck. Congratulations on your vehicle upgrade! Now comes the fun part — purchasing products to make your new truck even better. Adding a few finishing touches and product upgrades is a great way to customize your new truck to your liking. But you don’t want to waste your money on products that may not work with your vehicle’s make or model. Here are a few tips to try when researching products for your 2022 truck.
A Tonneau cover is probably one of the first things you’ll want to buy when you bring your truck home. It’s important to note, though, that tonneau covers are often designed to fit specific vehicle makes, models and years. To make sure you get the right Tonno Pro Tonneau Cover for your truck, search for your vehicle’s make, model and year in the search bar. This should bring up results that are applicable to your vehicle.
If you aren’t absolutely certain what year your vehicle was manufactured, enter your VIN online. You should be able to pull up your vehicle’s history so you can determine which tonneau cover is an appropriate fit.
Heater Hose Quick Connector
A tonneau cover is a pretty obvious upgrade for your truck, but there are less-obvious products that can be just as helpful. If you have a broken or stuck heater hose quick connector, you’ll want to get a new one asap. When one of your heater hose connectors breaks, it doesn’t usually take long for the other one to follow suit. By quickly replacing the worn or broken one, you may be able to save the other. Here are some of the most common indicators of faulty heater how connectors:
- Coolant leaks (which create puddles under the vehicle)
- Visibly cracked hoses
- Problems with your engine overheating
The last problem could also be a symptom of a more serious engine problem. If your engine overheats, check right away to see if your heater hose or connector is damaged. If they seem to be fine, get your vehicle to a professional technician right away. Continuing to drive in a vehicle with a constantly overheating engine could cause extensive and expensive damage.
If you live in a cold environment, you may want to invest in an engine heater. It will help you warm up the engine and the fluids it contains before you start up the vehicle. This extra step could prevent damage caused by trying to start an extremely cold engine. It’s a well-known fact that “cold starts” and idling in very cold temperatures can damage the engine and negatively impact its lifespan. Engine heaters can also reduce premature wear by lubricating your engine’s components before you ever turn the key.
These are just a few of the product purchases and upgrades you may want to make to your 2022 truck. If you have the budget to do so, buy them all at once. Otherwise, begin with the product that’s most important to you and purchase the others once you’re able.
