Everyone knows someone who drives a truck, so the odds are good that there’s a truck lover on your list this holiday season. With the enormous variety of trucks on the road today and wide range of jobs for which they can be put to use, truck fanatics are notoriously tricky to shop for - so we’re here to help.

Join us as we run-down the top 10 best-selling holiday gifts for the truck enthusiast and you won’t find a single tie on the list.

1. Tonneau Covers

Truck beds are one of the biggest incentives when it comes to driving a pickup. But, that doesn’t mean they’re not vulnerable. Whether it’s inclement weather or the prying eyes of potential thieves, the bed needs to be protected to take full advantage of its versatility. There are many options to choose from for your loved one, like the TruXedo TruXport Roll-Up Tonneau Cover that features straight bows and cross member for a flush fit. Or, if roll-up truck bed covers aren’t their style, the TonnoPro TriFold Tonneau or the BAK BakFlip Mx4 Folding Tonneau can provide the protection they’re looking for.

2. Running Board & Nerf Bars

We all need a leg-up every now and then, and with a set of running boards you can gift yourself as much as your beloved truck owner. Capable of providing you with that much-needed boost, the right running board or nerf bar can also add a rugged style to his rig that can’t be matched. For example, N-Fab Nerf Steps are all-welded, non-modular, have been tested at an impressive 465 lbs and come in high-gloss black or a textured matte-black powder coat to set any pickup apart from the competition.

3. Seat Covers

There’s no use crying over spilled milk, except maybe when it stains the truck’s seats as a result. But, you can protect their interior and keep it feeling fresh, clean and new for all the trips in the future by simply gifting protective and stylish seat covers. Covers like the CalTrend NeoSupreme Seat Covers are a surefire way to give him or her some peace of mind. Custom-designed for their specific truck, these first-rate covers are crafted from soft, yet durable, nylon-bonded NeoSupreme and are available for all rows of seats. Strong and UV-resistant, these covers are more than up to the challenge of everyday life.

4. Suspension Systems

Raise the bar when it comes to both gift giving and his pickup’s comfort with a new suspension system. With a plethora of components to choose from, you can finally give him that upgrade that brings a smooth ride without sacrificing towing ability. One of the best gifts around, an Air Lift Air Bar Suspension Kit is fully adjustable and allows him to specify the firmness of his suspension – add more air when towing and let it out when commuting. And, it even includes everything he needs to make installation as easy as pie, truly making it the perfect gift.

5. Floor Mats & Liners

From the job site to off-road trails, there’s no shortage of places where she can track dirt, mud and grime into her rig. As such, every floor mat and liner in our extensive selection, whether custom-fit or universal, provides the protection her truck sorely needs. For example, boasting indestructible strength and a soft, durable cushion, Husky Liners X-act Contour Floor Liners, utilize an innovative FormFit measuring process to ensure an exact fit that adapts to every contour in her pickup.

6. Brakes & Rotors

Being able to stop on a dime – no matter how much your buddy is hauling – is an ability he needs. And, the quickest way to make that a reality is to upgrade his overworked, stock braking system with brakes, rotors and pads from AutoAnything.com. Power Stop Z23 Evolution Brake Kits, for example, are a top-seller that utilize custom-matched components and ceramic pads to deliver up to 20% more stopping power than the competition. Or, EBC Brake Kits provide the vehicle specific pads and rotors needed for a whole system overhaul and come in a variety of configurations to suit various vehicle applications.

7. Exhaust

It’s easier than ever to take a pickup’s performance, sound and MPG to previously unimaginable heights – all that’s required is an upgraded exhaust system. And, with our unbeatable selection, it’seasy for you to impress the truck lover on your list with the perfect exhaust system. Take Flowmaster Exhaust Systems for instance - they’re custom designed for their specific year, make and model and provide jaw-dropping horsepower gains, a much-needed boost in MPG and the most famous exhaust tone known to the automotive world. Other exhausts such as Gibson and Borla systems also provide impressive gains and make great gifts.

8. Air Intake Systems

Don’t let dear old Dad settle for the less than stellar power and performance that comes with his quiet, stock intake. An upgraded air intake system from AutoAnything.com, like the K&N 57 Series FIPK Air Intake (50-State Legal), is a surefire way to boost power and torque across the RPM band and serves as a great gift idea for any truck owner looking to create more power and performance. Custom-engineered for his specific, year, make and model to improve its MPG, this high-quality intake delivers cooler air than conventional metal tubes and installs in 90-minutes or less.

9. Deflectors

Splat. It’s a sound that no one wants to hear, but one that’s all too common when you’re cruising down the highway. And, that’s why deflectors make such a perfect gift for the truck owner who’s looking to keep their rig’s front end looking as good as can be. One option to help your front end preserve its rugged style is AVS Bug Deflectors. Custom- shaped for a perfect fit on their make and model, these top-tier deflectors provide edge-to-edge protection and sport a sleek, aerodynamic performance. If you’re shopping for someone who likes to crack the windows, AVS In-Channel Ventvisors and AVS External Mount Ventvisors also make great gifts.

10. Performance Chips & Programmers

Exhausts and air intake systems aren’t the only way to improve a pickup’s performance. Performance Chips and Programmers are a surefire way to optimize performance. Specifically, Bully Dog GT Platinum Tuner (49-State Legal) serve as an all-in-one tuner, monitor, gauge and diagnostic device that improves engine efficiency (diesel) or fuel economy (gas) making them the perfect gift to leave under any truck lover’s tree. Other tuners like the DiabloSport inTune i2 Tuner and the Range Active Fuel Management Disable Device can provide the performance gains that will make your rig the envy of the road.
