Brake Controllers

An Electric Brake controller is a device that regulates and actuates the electric brakes of a trailer. They allow the drive to activate and monitor trailer brake activity form the cab.

Brake Controllers generally have a few different controls however they are either time based or inertia based.

If you plan to haul a trailer with electric brakes you will need a brake controller installed.

Air Bags / Air Springs

Installing Air Bags on your truck will allow for improved handling, braking, and load carrying capacity when towing. Keeping your vehicle level means less tire wear as well. This system will allow you to change air pressures in the bags for larger or smaller loads. Then allow you to deflate the bags for a better ride when you are not towing.

We can also add an on-board air compressor for you to fill and drain the bags from the driver’s seat of your vehicle. Do you own a smart phone? We can even give you the ability to change pressures with your phone!

Bike Racks & Luggage Racks

Bike Racks are very popular for those with a Car or SUV attempting to haul a bike around. We stock several different bike racks that can be inserted to a 1 1Ž4 or 2 inch receiver hitch. Many bike racks will allow 2 to 5 bikes to be carried at one time.

Luggage racks allow for easy Cargo Management when you lack space in your truck or truck bed. Most of the luggage racks we carry fold up vertically to move out of the way when you are not using the rack. The most common style is a large tray. Stop in today and take a look at our luggage racks!
