What Ford Accessories Are Must-Haves for the Bed of a New Ford F-150?

If you're an eastern Ohio trucker driving a brand-new light-duty pickup, you probably need a little bit of everything. Luckily, Ford makes it easy to accessorize in exactly the way you want. Here are a few things our Ford truck experts here at Sarchione Ford of Waynesburg suggest to help make your ride a capable hauler.

  • Bed rails. These not only provide a stylish look but also act as durable tie-down anchors. Just add straps or use a non-slip rope to tie a trucker's hitch.
  • Illumination. Bed lighting can give you a clearer view of the bed at night or when a better look of what's going on under the tonneau cover or box cap is needed.
  • Lockable side storage. Use it to tuck away tools and small components, so they aren't rolling around in back when you roll out.
  • A bed cover. This comes in handy for securing raw materials or equipment from the elements.
  • A horizontal- or vertical-mount cargo net. Hook one up just about anywhere to keep small items secure. They're great for use with locking cleats, which, like retractable bed hooks, keep a stronger hold on quarry more likely to shift during the long haul. They're also a required pair with a standard interface plate, with which you can also connect a ramp or one of many other universal attachments.
  • A stowable loading ramp. Install one of these, and you can reliably load up big-time cargo, especially gear with wheels.
  • A bed divider. Use this in tandem with an interface plate to create multiple load zones and keep different kit separate.
  • A bed extender. You can set one up over an open tailgate to create more space without exposing the tail ends of your load to traffic or other rear obstacles.
  • Bed liners and mats. These provide rugged protection for the truck bed and keep particulate from digging in where you don't want it.
  • Side steps. With one or two of these on your regular cab, SuperCab, or SuperCrew, you can enter and exit more easily.

Of course, Ford F-150 isn't the only new Ford vehicle you can accessorize.
