What to look for when you want to replace your truck.
How much money do you have to spend?
And how much will it cost?
We know trucks can be expensive, and some may be a lot more than others.
But here are our picks for the best and worst of truck accessories for every price range.
When you’re buying, look for things that have an extended warranty, a warranty term of at least 10 years and, if you’re getting a truck, at least two years of service.
The best truck accessories We’ve found at the best truck stores are also the best for getting the most out of your truck, whether it’s for the price, the quality, or the fit and finish.
We’ve compiled the best of the best at the following truck dealerships and truck sites.
The Good: Good for the money If you’re looking for the cheapest price on a truck with a great-looking interior, this is your spot.
The Ford Raptor is the best-selling pickup truck in the United States.
Its $29,999 MSRP is a fraction of the $60,000+ sticker price of the Chevrolet Malibu, and you can get one with the Ford logo on the grille.
The seller, Joe P. from California, told us that the truck is in excellent condition, which is good news for owners who have a tendency to break their trucks down.
But, the seller noted that the Raptor has an “unfinished exterior,” which means that there are cracks in the paintwork.
“It’s a nice truck but, at this price point, it’s not the best option,” he said.
That said, P. said he’s looking forward to replacing the truck with the more expensive Ford F-150, which has a slightly lower sticker price.
The Raptor, which also gets the Ford-themed paint, also has a limited-service warranty.
And, if it gets a flat tire, it’ll get you a free replacement.
The Bad: Price and fit and finishes We don’t recommend the Raptors for those who want a vehicle that’s easy to get out of.
The truck has an attractive interior, but it’s mostly made of wood.
And it lacks an option for a heated bed.
And the seller notes that the interior has a tendency of chipping, and the rear end is a little too wide for a standard truck bed.
Also, P.’s truck has a small engine, which may make it more difficult to get going.
We don, either, and so we’re not buying.
If you want a truck that looks nice, but doesn’t get the big, big parts, the Toyota Tacoma has a pretty good deal.
The Tacoma comes with a 3.6-liter V6 that gets the big-boy parts, like an automatic transmission, heated front seats and heated steering wheel.
And if you don’t want to splurge on a $49,995 V6, the Tacoma comes equipped with a 4.2-liter diesel that can get the little stuff right, too.
But that’s not a truck for everyone.
The Big Deal: A $50,000 investment The truck that gets you the most value?
The Honda Ridgeline gets a $50 for every $100 spent, which sounds like a lot, but that’s actually $100 less than the best pickup on the market, the Ford F150.
So, for the average price of a pickup, you get two good things: a good-looking, well-built truck with lots of quality, and a little bit of extra cash for your troubles.
Honda is not the only brand that offers these deals.
Ford, Chevrolet and GMC all offer good deals.
For example, Honda will pay you $49.99 per $100 of the truck’s MSRP for the Ridgelines’ top-of-the-line 3.0-liter engine.
Toyota will pay $39.99 for the same engine.
But these deals only apply to a truck in good shape.
You can also pick up a $200,000 Honda CR-V that has an automatic Transmission Upgrade Kit.
And you can also get a $1,500 Honda CRV that comes with the same automatic transmission as the F150, including an option to have it automatic in a pinch.
The good news is that you can buy an automatic-equipped CR-v for under $200.
The bad news is you won’t get a lot of mileage out of it, and if you get a flat or damaged tire, you’ll have to pay to get it fixed.
But if you can afford it, Honda’s Ridgules are one of the better deals.
