Wanting your truck to be more versatile? Adding a truck cap can do just that! Truck caps extend the usable interior cargo space of your truck, by creating a space that's similar to that of an SUV. Meanwhile, cargo boxes add an extra storage option to the back of your truck. Read on to learn more about the available options
The Advantages of a Truck Cap
A truck cap is a relatively expensive modification, but it radically alters the look of your truck and gives you a lot of additional space. If you regularly find yourself carrying valuable items, whether it be for work or play, a truck cap is an easy way to secure and organize it. Truck caps can even be used to customize the appearance of your vehicle, as they can either be color-matched to fit your vehicle or purchased with a custom design.
Truck caps are installed securely to the make and model of your truck, so they are considered to be a permanent modification. Though they can be removed, it's difficult to do so. This addition is not a suitable customization for those who only occasionally need to haul items. They also do permanently enclose the truck bed, so they are not suitable to those who may need to move large or oversized items.
The Advantages of a Cargo Box
A cargo box is a small box that locks and fits inside of the bed. They come in a variety of sizes, but all types are heavy duty and secure. Understandably, a cargo box is not going to be able to hold and secure as much compared to a truck cap. But a cargo box has a lot of other advantages, especially for those who aren't hauling a large volume of items. They can be removed easily, to make space in the truck bed, and they are also more affordable.
Like a truck cap, there are different styles of cargo boxes available. They also often come with organizational options built-in, so that you can keep your items safely tucked away while in motion. They are exceptionally popular with those who go fishing or for those who have to carry around tools, such as tradesmen. They're also an excellent option for those who only occasionally need storage, and would otherwise prefer to keep their truck bed clear.
Depending on your needs, a truck cap or a cargo box may be better. Either way, both of them extend the usefulness of your truck's storage and make it easier for you to keep your work tools and your recreational items with you.
