Top 5 Accessories for Upfitting Your Work Truck

Pickup trucks are a great asset. Not only are they functional, but they’re also stylish. It’s not uncommon for individuals to pull double-duty with their pickup trucks and use them for work-related purposes. If this is the case for you, it’s important to maximize the benefits of your work truck by upfitting it. If you’re looking to make a change, here are the top 5 accessories for upfitting your work truck!

GEN-Y Hitch

Without a doubt, one of the greatest decisions you can make is to upgrade to a GEN-Y hitch. Obviously, we’re a little biased, but our happy customers speak for themselves about the benefits and features of our wide selection of hitches.


What makes GEN-Y hitches so different is their use of our patented TORSION-FLEX technology. This technology reduces inertia between trucks and trailers by up to 90%. This helps you save money as it limits the wear on your tires, truck, and trailer, as well as increases your fuel efficiency. GEN-Y hitches help you experience a smoother ride and more control while towing. Regardless of your line of work, a GEN-Y hitch is sure to make your towing experience more enjoyable.

Truck Toolbox

Truck toolboxes are another great addition to your work truck. There are many types to choose from, and each material has its own pros and cons. However, a stainless steel waterproof toolbox is a great option. Not only are they durable, but their sturdy fabrication offers enhanced protection. Plus, as an added benefit, they can withstand harsh weather conditions for years to come, making them an excellent choice for your work truck. 

Truck Bed Cover

Harsh weather such as rain, sleet, and snow can cause a lot of damage to your truck bed over time, causing you to have to pay big bucks for repairs. Truck bed covers help mitigate these concerns by protecting your truck bed and any supplies in it. Furthermore, their sleek design can help your truck appear more professional, which is great if you’re using one truck for both personal and professional purposes. 

Cargo Slide

One of the best accessories for upfitting your work truck is a cargo slide. This operates as a drawer of sorts, allowing you to slide out a portion of your truck bed to easily reach whatever you need. For those who are constantly going back and forth to their truck for materials, this can save a lot of time and effort. 

Ladder Rack

At GEN-Y Hich, we understand that work trucks aren’t the only vehicles pulling double duty. Cargo vans are another great way to take of personal and professional work. Not only can cargo vans be outfitted with a GEN-Y hitch, but they can also be equipped with a ladder rack. Commonly used by painters and other contract laborers, a ladder rack is a perfect way to securely attach ladders to the roof or side of your van. This frees up space inside your van for any other materials you may need.
