“For people having difficulty climbing in and out of their truck, power boards that open automatically when the door is opened would be a much appreciated gift.”

One week left until Christmas, which sure came quickly.

If you, like me, thought you still had lots of time to buy presents, then you can officially start to panic. In a bid to ease that terror, I have listed some of the new truck products that came out this year.

Smittybuilt has many off-road items for under $50. R.U.T Utility tool is a foldable military style shovel that has a serrated edge and a double position neck. Storage bag included $20.89. U.F.O is a safety light that is actually an emergency flare with visibility up to a mile with a built in flashlight. It is waterproof and comes complete with a high capacity lithium battery. $25.69. Have you ever hit the trail and do nothing but rub the dust away from your eyes. Trail goggles will come in handy, made from high impact material, three interchangeable lenses (yellow/clear/gray), anti-fog, anti-scratch and only $28.19.

Rigid industries are the makers of popular LED off-road lights. Many new models have come out lately including curved versions that work perfectly over the windshield. Sizes range from 20” all the way up to 54” and mounting brackets are available. Price ranges from $924–$2,149.

Is cold weather affecting your battery’s ability to hold a charge?

CTEK has a battery charger kit that regulates how much power it gives to the battery and automatically slows down when fully charge. It stands by only giving power when required to maintain your battery for a longer life.

For people having difficulty climbing in and out of their truck, power boards that open automatically when the door is opened would be a much-appreciated gift. Close the door and they tuck up nicely out of the way. They are made from carbon steel and have a built in anti-pitch safety feature that senses pressure to keep the board from retracting on your hands and feet. $1,325.

Snow is coming and what better way to get it off your driveway than a Snowsport plow. It is an easy to install with a front receiver hitch. Self-adjusting and does not require cab controls. The Snowsport is a quick and easy solution to snow clearing. $1,816 – $2,205.

Winter debris melting from your car can make a mess of anyone’s garage floor. Tapson has garage mats that are designed to keep mud, slush and other debris from depositing on your floor. Easy to slide outside and hose off and you’re ready to go again. Available in two sizes 7’ 4” x 18’ 4” and 7’ 4” x 21’ 4” – $289.09–$317.69

Fabtech is a suspension company and is very popular with the off-road community. They have built a unique item that will appeal a wide range of people. It is a 38,000 BTU propane barbeque made to look like a mechanics toolbox. Door slides upon to access a propane tank and the top opens like a traditional grille. Check it out at Fabtech.com
