You’ve surely heard their motto “Built Ford Tough”. Ford Motor Company is currently the third largest automaker in the world. Today the Ford Motor Company is an American Multinational Company and chances are you would be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t know something about this company. Ford first began its manufacturing of trucks in 1908. Things have changed considerably since that first truck rolled off the assembly line. Commercial vehicles were eventually produced for the Ford truck line in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, India, the Netherlands, the Philippines, Spain, Turkey, the UK, and the United States, although this manufacturing maneuver did not last long. The European venture lasted longer than others although it too is now non-existent. In 1986 the European Ford venture, called the Ford of Britain, was sold to the Iveco group and new models from this company are manufactured under the Transcontinental and Cargo logos. The United States version of the Ford heavy truck division was sold to Freightliner, which is now part of the Daimler truck line. Since 1997 the brand has been known under the Sterling logo. Although Ford continues today to manufacture medium class trucks with the ever-popular F-650 and F-750 names, they have also recently added the new LCF series to the line-up which is somewhat similar to the Ford Cargo trucks of yesteryear.
Ford has received many distinguished awards over the years, including the ever coveted J.D. Power award multiple times. Although the Ford F-250 and F-350, commercial vans and the new E-Series are the main Ford trucks in manufacturing today, the name Ford still stands for quality and many drivers will simply not sit behind the wheel of anything else. You simply have to drive through the southern section of the nation to see how Southerner’s feel about their Ford trucks. Whether you drive a medium to heavy duty semi or simply flit about in an F-150, Ford trucks are synonymous with farming, hauling and heavy duty driving. For many there simply is no substitute. Henry Ford himself must be looking down with pride at the reflection that his life’s work has made on the automotive industry. Auto keychains are now all the rage among vehicle owners. These items are not only perfect accessories, but they also show a sense of pride in owning a particular car. While people in the past may have not cared what they use key rings for their car keys, it is more different now. At present, people place great stock on getting accessories that greatly complement their vehicles because these adds stature to them as vehicles owners. There are also others who buy these items as part of a collection that they started that pertains to the car or truck or SUV that they own.
Ford, being a respected automaker in America, now also has a lot of these accessories made under its name. There are many such items that are made specifically for Ford models as well. So, if you are an owner of a Ford vehicle like a Ford Truck, there are now many available styles of Ford Truck keychains that you could find. Depending on your preferences for them, you could actually find one that is ideal for you. Most of them are at least 3 inches in height and has got a width of at least one and a half inches. They are also mostly made of leather, metal or solid brass and comes either gold or chrome plated. With the many choices and you can find really manly ones made of fine and definitely top grain black leather. These leather variations either have the Ford Truck 4×4 inscribed on them or they just have the Ford Trucks insignia. There are also other types that are made of metal with a high polish chrome finish which might come in white with blue text or blue and red backgrounds with white text. There are also a number of them that are made of metal and solid brass and are plated. These variations could be personalized with perhaps an addition of your name to the usual Ford Truck logo or insignia.
There are now many stores that sell these keyrings. If you could not find one in town stores, then you can probably find lots of them at stores in the city. You can also save on the hassle of going to these stores to try to find the perfect one for you by going online. You can also shop right in the comforts of your home through the Internet where there are quite a lot of online stores that sell these items and deliver them right at your doorstep.

Ford Truck keychains are must-haves for the quintessential Ford Truck owner. This is because most Ford Truck owners are proud of their vehicles and usually show their pride in blatant ways like getting these types of items. For these Ford Truck owners, especially the men, these are not just plain accessories for their hot rod, it is also a symbol of their ownership of such a truck.
Today we will talk about some of the most popular Ford truck accessories that other are installing on their trucks. This is a guide to give you the Ford truck enthusiast some ideas on what you can do to your Ford truck to improve both looks and performance. We hope you enjoy and find some useful information in this article. Pick number one is the addition of a Magnaflow exhaust system. When it comes to aftermarket exhaust systems on Ford trucks the Magnaflow seems to be the top pick. By installing a Magnaflow system you can expect to get more horsepower and torque as well as the signature Magnaflow sound. The dual rear exit system seems to be the most popular. Pick number two is a Bed cover. The most popular tonneau cover chosen by Ford owners seems to be The Extang Trifecta for its ease of use and versatility. The Trifecta fold up in seconds and is easily stowed behind your seat or laid on its side in your truck bed when hauling bigger objects. This cover is very easy to use and one of the best on the market.
Pick number 3 is a remote starter. I think this is because the Northern part of the country tends to be where there is more Ford enthusiast then other brands. That being said the remote starter makes life much easier if you live in colder weather and need to let your truck warm up for a bit before driving (which is highly recommended when below freezing) Pick number 4 is a billet grille. I don’t know why but it seems that Ford owners just do not like the look of the stock Ford grills. Adding a billet grill does really improve the looks of the front of a Ford truck. If any Ford reps are reading this you might want to pay attention to what I am saying. In other words, improve the looks of your grills Ford and we won’t buy the aftermarket ones. Pick number 5 is a bed liner. I know this should probably be pick number one but it is a tough one because more people are installing bed rigs or bed mats these days. Personally speaking, I think the bed liner is the better bet. You can always still add a mat or carpet with a bed liner installed but the liner gives the best protection in my opinion.
So there you have it folks I have given you my top 5 Ford truck accessories picks. Remember these are my picks and it really is personal opinion. Others that came close to making my pick list included wheels and tires, tube steps and of course the ever popular bull bar. These are all good accessories and may very well be on the top of your list. Oh and don’t forget to check out performance tuners as well. I did not get into suspension as you noticed as I tried to keep this simple and not to the extreme. That will be another article for another day. Until then enjoy tricking out your Ford trucks and don’t break the bank doing it. The Ford car manufacturing company boasts of being the best and extraordinary manufacturers in the truck industry. The Ford company have specialized in the manufacture of the truck to be used for many purposes. They have new truck designs with state of the art technology but still maintain the power the old models had.
The new trucks are meant to give the driver a good experience in that the driver might be driving a truck but it feels like he/she is driving a different car. They have improved the exteriors of their trucks and also the interiors and the trucks come at a very affordable price. Some trucks come with some good features which were not in the old models like air conditioning and CD players so as to make the driver enjoy the car more. The previous models of a car are used to judge the new models. People look at the performance of the previous model and its features and judge the new model based on the performance of the older model. Ford has a good reputation in the manufacture of good trucks that are easy to maintain and due to this fact, many people prefer buying trucks of the Ford brand. The prices of the Ford trucks are also reasonable for making them the best option if you want to purchase a truck.
Okay, so here you have it guys. Today I am going to talk to you about some extreme Ford truck accessories. When I talk extreme I am talking about some accessories that the everyday truck driver probably will not install. These accessories are more advanced and are not for the mild-hearted souls that don’t live on the edge. Extreme accessory number one – Skyjacker extreme lift kits for your Ford truck. To install a Skyjacker lift kit one must understand that much more is involved then the kit. First, we must decide how high we want to go. Once this is decided our next task is deciding on wheels and tires. Simply put stock wheels and tires will not work. The Skyjacker Complete Lift Kits will push ground clearance and aggressive looks of your truck to new heights, letting you conquer on or off-road obstacles with complete confidence. As Skyjacker says the sky is the limit when it comes to how much lift you want to put into your truck.
Extreme accessory number two – RBP True cold air intake. The RBP cold air intake will increase the horsepower of your Ford truck and improve torque. Each intake is custom fit for your specific model of Ford truck. RBP is one the best performing cold air intakes for the Ford that we have found on the market. If you are serious about airflow then these intakes come highly recommended. Extreme accessory number three – Borla Cat-Back exhaust system. The Borla exhaust system id for the truck owner that is looking for much more than sound out of there truck. This system delivers performance hands down that is my opinion is untouchable in the aftermarket exhaust industry. The Borla cat-back system offers great gains in horsepower for your truck, and when teamed up with a good intake and a tuner you will gain some extreme horsepower from this investment. Even without anything else, the Borla exhaust system gains are definitely noticeable and the sound is almost nonexistent until you hit the throttle and that is when this exhaust comes to life.
Extreme accessory number four – Bully Dog triple dog tuner. The Bully Dog tuner is a must if you are looking for the full potential of your other additions such as the performance mode mentioned above on your Ford truck. Without getting into too many details on why I feel this is the best choice in tuners I will say that having 4 different power levels and on the fly, control is what brings this tuner to the top for me. The Bully Dog is the best performing tuner in my book hands down, however, I will also give the Superchips two thumbs up for the Ford. Extreme accessory number five – EBC Slotted rotors. Now some may find it strange that I added brakes to the extreme lineup but think of this. If you increase power then you need to increase stopping power. When playing with our new added toys our brakes take a beating. A set of good slotted rotors helps to keep them cool. Don’t forget some good quality pads to go along with them. So there you have it, folks. These are my top extreme picks for now. There are more but I could only fit so much in one article. Hope you enjoyed.
