First thing you bought for your new truck...


Recommended Posts

Can't wait to get home and add a couple accessories as soon as I buy a truck.  Usually the first thing my trucks get are a phone mount, tonneau cover, and window tint.  Just wondered what everyone else does....the last few vehicles I've added the window vents/visors and we'll see if they get put on the list this time.  I've never really done wheels/tires/lift, so just wondered what everyone else accessorizes their trucks with

The very first thing I would do was exhaust. Most times the very same day. Then the visors, toolbox, nerf bars, hand held tune. Depending on tires KOs. If it was the early days goose neck ball.

I ended up installing/changing the following on ours so far:

  • GM floor liners
  • Weathertech mud flaps and plastic hitch step bumper
  • Bakflip MX4 hard folding tonneau cover
  • DeeZee rubber bed mat (over factory spray in liner)
  • Removed front air dam
  • 6" short flexible radio antenna
  • Memory foam seat bottom cushions for front seats
  • Full rear bench seat cover

Center console organizer

Stubby antenna

LED front turns

LED reverse lights

LED license plate lights

 

If you have the money:

PPF

Ceramic coating

 

If you don't already have rubber floor mats, I'd recommend the GM Z71 mats. They are amazing and I much prefer them over a Weathertech or other brand.

Dealer sells a ceramic coating, polysteel?  Any idea how that fairs for a ceramic coating

I'm not sure about polysteel. But I assume it's similar to what other dealers advertise as "Zaktek".

In my experience and from hearing from others, it's not a true ceramic coating. It's more of a "ceramic spray" similar to what you can pickup at an auto parts store. 

It's not nearly as good and not nearly as long lasting as a true ceramic coating, but should be better than nothing.

 

But if they're charging you something like $1000 for the package, you're better off taking it to a detailer and having them apply a high quality product like Armor Shield IX by Avalon King.
