Interior Aftermarket Accessories
One of the first upgrades many consumers do for their truck or Jeep is upgrade their floor mats. When it comes to protecting your interior, Midwest Aftermarket has you covered. We have all the best floor liners and mats in stock for your truck. And when it comes to organizing your cab, we have great storage solutions too. Let's take a quick preview of all the excellent aftermarket interior accessories we have to make your truck more stylish. These upgrades will help keep your upholstery in mint condition too and your gear stowed exactly where you left it.
First it might be useful to know some of the terms we use to describe these products.
Floor Mats or Floor Liners
One of the most important upgrades you can make to your vehicle, as soon as you can, is adding some great floor liners. These products are easy to install, and they will increase the resale value of your vehicle over time. Floor liners to this by protecting your upholstery and carpet--keeping them in brand new condition for the life of the vehicle.
But sometimes people will talk about floor mats and floor liners like they are the same thing. But are they?
What's the difference between a floor mat and a floor liner?
Both a floor mat and a custom liner will help protect your upholstery in your car, Jeep, van or truck. The difference is that a floor mat is like the stock mat that came with your vehicle. A mat doesn't cover the entire floor board. A floor liner, on the other hand, will fit the entire section of the floor and is custom designed to fit your exact year, make, and model vehicle. In other words, floor liners fit the exact shape of your floorboard, whereas mats just cover a small part of it.
Most floor liners, like Husky Liners, WeatherTech, and SMARTLiners, also are made out of TPO and other thermoplastic like material. This means they are waterproof, designed to last, and they are super easy to clean. A true liner will have a lip or raised edge along the outside part of the liner. This edge or lip prevents liquid spills and mud from running off the liner and damaging your carpeted upholstery.
Whether you're looking for a cargo mat or a car floor mat, a van liner or trunk liner, these products are designed to prevent your interior from getting damaged. And if the inside of your vehicle stays in great condition, it will keep its value and be worth more should you ever decide to sell it or trade it in.
These days, heavy duty floor liners are designed using lasers and digital CAD to credit 3D structures that fit the contours of your vehicle's floorboard perfectly. Some of us in the aftermarket parts industry would even go to bat for or argue that one manufacturer is better than another when it comes to floor liners or cargo liners. We carry a number of great products to protect the inside of your truck or Jeep. At the end of the day, we'd consider cost, material, color, and of course your own personal preference. Some liners just look cooler or are a little thicker.
When in doubt, we want to get you the products you want for your vehicle. And we wouldn't carry anything we thought you might not be pleased with at the end of the day. So shop with confidence. If a truck floor liner is listed on our site, we've used it, tested it, and found it worth our time and money.
Cargo Liners, Trunk Liners, and Van Liners
If you're not just looking to protect your floor boards, we have other options for the rest of your vehicle's parts too. For SUVs and Vans, we carry several types of cargo liners and trunk liners. These products work similarly to the floor liners as they protect the upholstery and interior of your vehicle. But they line your trunk or the back of your van instead of your floorboards.
These kinds of aftermarket accessories are great for people who have dogs and cats who often ride in vehicles. They help if you ever have to haul anything dirty in your trunk of the back of your van. I like our trunk liners for when I need to take dirty oil to be recycled and even when we pick up liquid chlorine shock for our pool. These liners have lips around the edge to prevent these kinds of chemicals from damaging your carpet and interiors.
If you've ever had something slide around and spill or fall over in your trunk, then you know how useful a trunk liner can be. These protective parts prevent sliding and spilling--keeping your trunk clean and in like new condition.
Again all of these products are great for upping resale value and keeping your vehicle up and running smoothly. But what if you're using a commercial grade van? What if you own your own small business or work as a contractor?
Our Van Liners and Cargo Liners, like the BedRug Van Liner and Cargo Mat, are designed to hold up to the wear and tear of any heavy duty job. If you want to keep your cargo space clean and in top condition, you need a liner or mat to protect it. Whether you're in the delivery industry, running baked goods or packages from spot to spot, or you're a part time carpentry, these mats will help your van last longer and keep it clean.
And should you ever have a spill or accident, these liners are designed to be chemical resistant. Most can handle oil, chlorine bleach, gasoline, and just about whatever else you can throw at it. We even offer one that is rated against battery acid. Having done some serious work in my younger days delivering auto parts, I know the danger of battery acid. Been there. Done that. When it comes to spills of caustic and acidic liquids, you don't want to risk permanent damage to your van's interior. Cargo areas are hard to clean and even harder to repair. Get a decent all weather floor mat today and you'll be able to keep your van in perfect condition for years to come.
I have gotten battery acid on my shoes and shorts before. And chlorine bleach / liquid pool shock isn't no joke either. So what are you to do when you spill it all over your van's floor?
When you don't have a cargo liner, you've probably just damaged your floor or carpet interior indefinitely. There might not be much you can do besides live with it. Or you can upgrade to a cargo liner now and lay that over the top and it will be good as new. In fact, had you had one in the first place, you'll be happy to know the damage would not have occured in the first place. And should you have a spill, you could always just spray it out with a hose or pressure washer and get on with your life.
That's part of why when you're doing commercial work especially, cargo liners are a must. You really need to protect your business as a small business owner. And your number one investment is probably your van or truck. Company cars are no joke, and they aren't indispensable either. So protect your interiors with cargo liners and floor mats before something damages them beyond repair.
Most, if not all, of the truck accessories are designed to keep your vehicle in great condition no matter what hardships and tough jobs you throw at them. Whether you're looking to liner your trunk or the cargo area of your commercial van, these products prevent both your vehicle and whatever you're hauling from taking any damage.
Consider too that most liners have some kind of anti-skid surface. These textured skins are designed to prevent any cargo or gear your hauling from sliding around. There's nothing worse than getting your van or truck damaged and breaking your equipment at the same time because some tool box or heavy piece of machinery slammed into the side of your van when you made a quick turn.
And as my grandma always says, it doesn't matter how careful of a driver you are. It matters how terrible the other drivers around you are. Too true, grandma. Too true.
And when you consider the amount of value you are protecting at the limited investment of buying a few floor liners or cargo mats, it becomes pretty clear that the cost is outweighed by the benefit. Heck, even the peace of mind alone is probably worth it.
And once more, even if you just have dogs or kids and aren't putting these products in your commercial vehicle, you're still going to be protected. I always think about working jobs with caustic chemicals when I think about truck bed liners and floor mats, but the truth is kids and pets can do lots of damage too. I know. I have both.
And even if it isn't true physical damage, picking up some seat covers to prevent dog hair from getting all stuck in the seats can save you the pain of having to vacuum the back of your vehicle every other weekend. And we all know how hard it is to get dog hair out of some of these padded seats. With a set of seat covers, say from Husky Liners, you can just pull the covers off, throw them in the wash, dry 'em, and then reinstall. No fuss. No muss.
I prefer simple solutions and using the right tools for the job. And step one in these cases is decking out the interior of your vehicle with an armored layer of protection.
Truck Cab Storage Solutions
But maybe you're less concerned with spills and dogs and more concerned with storing your tools. Of course, there's tool boxes for that, but some of your tools are so valuable, you might not want them to ride in the back of your truck or they might not fit. I always carry some items like jumper cables, flash lights, and tie downs and bungees just in case in the cab of my truck, for instance. But this can become a real issue if they are sliding around all the time or stuck underneath seats.
I've got a confession to make. The first time I touch the young lady who turned out to be my wife on a date, I thought I'd cleaned up my truck real nice. And I did. I did. But I didn't think about all the stuff I had stored behind the seat of my standard bench seat cab. Yeah, I used to be old school like that.
Things were going pretty well, until on the way back from a nice dinner, I had to put the brakes on kinda suddenly for a light change. And no, I didn't stop short. I'm not that kinda guy.
My jumper cables, a bundle of zip ties, a flashlight, and I think a couple screwdrivers came sliding out from under her side of the seat into the floorboard. I just smiled sheepishly. But trust me when I say she gave me hell about it later.
Her point was legitimate too. At first I thought she was just being a nag, before she explained that if this could happen on the passenger side, what if it happened on the driver's side? Tools and jumper cables could interfere with my pedals, and before you know it I could be in real danger.
I didn't have the heart to tell her I had made sure to shove all the stuff back onto the passenger side for just that reason. But seriously, her point rings true.
Even more, how often do you find yourself searching for a tool that you know is in your back seat or stored behind your seat somewhere and you just can't find the damn thing. It would be so much easier if these items were stored properly, inside some sort of organizer.
Later in my life I was introduced to the Husky Liner's Gearbox and other similar products, like those from DuHa. These storage solutions make organizing your truck cab easy and safe. Some are even designed to hold firearms safely and securely. And if you have an Extended or Crew Cab, these style products have been designed to be hidden underneath that back seat. You wouldn't even know they were there until you needed them. Now that's a great product that saves time, keeps your stuff where it's supposed to be, and improves safety. Very smart stuff, indeed.
