Ideas for customizing a pickup truck include installing custom interior lighting, gauges, audio and video accessories, shifters and pedals. An owner can also add custom bumpers, tonneau covers, tailgates, running boards and mud flaps to their trucks' exteriors for customization.
An owner can also customize his pickup truck by giving it a custom paint job. This can include custom murals on the tailgate. Professional vehicle paint shops can help owners design unique paint schemes for their vehicles.
Unique gauges or pods help drivers monitor their stats, gauges and readings while driving. Intellitronix produces LED speedometers, tachometers, volt meter gauges and fuel level gauges with red, blue, white or green lighting for customizing vehicle interiors. Five-gauge panels combine a digital speedometer with volt, oil pressure, water temperature and fuel gauges in one instrument.
An owner can also add custom suspension to his pickup truck. He can add custom leaf springs to two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive models as well as antique pickup trucks for on-road or off-road driving. Custom leaf springs include Teflon pads, removable spring clips, diamond-cut leafs, military wraps and original equipment manufacturer bushings. The owner can choose leaf springs that are softer or stiffer than the originals. Manufacturers individually build custom leaf springs for each vehicle to meet owners' needs.
