Once you have your diesel truck, it will only be a matter of time before you start adding on upgrades. Diesel trucks have a large selection of accessories and performance-enhancing upgrades that are designed to not only improve your vehicle but also customize it. You'll be spending a lot of time in your truck, shouldn't it show? Here are some of the most popular upgrades.
1. Exhaust Systems
Most exhaust systems are built today to be inconspicuous, but this can also reduce the power of your engine. Larger diesel exhaust systems improve performance, increasing the size of your exhaust can also increasing torque, fuel mileage and horsepower.
2. Suspension Systems
A new suspension system is exactly what you need if you're going to be hauling heavy items or even off-roading. An air suspension system improves upon stability, levels loads and also creates a more pleasant driving experience on any terrain.
3. Turbo Upgrades
A diesel turbo upgrade can increase horsepower while also ensuring that exhaust gas temperature is kept low. If you want the best in performance, you probably want to invest in a turbo upgrade, exhaust system and air filter upgrade — all of this together will vastly improve performance.
4. Tonneau Covers
A tonneau cover improves the appearance and lines of your truck while also providing for better aerodynamics, reducing your gas mileage and allowing your truck to achieve higher speeds even faster. Different styles let you customize your truck however you want.
5. Exhaust Brake
An exhaust brake will improve upon your stopping power, which is very important when you're already improving your engine power. The more powerful your truck is, the more powerful your brake system has to be. This is highly advisable for trucks with a lot of upgrades.
6. Performance Chips
Performance chips are software that enhance your truck in a high-tech way, creating multiple settings for the performance that you need and showing your engine data in a readable format — so you can adjust your driving at any time.
7. Seat Covers and Floor Mats
If it's an appearance change that you need, seat covers and floor mats are an easy way to customize your interior without having to spend a lot of money. This upgrade will also protect the interior of the vehicle which can help with resale value in the future
8. Air Filters and Air Intake Systems
Alongside an exhaust system, these systems improve upon torque, economy and horsepower, by letting your engine take in and release more air and therefore operate with greater power.
