Over the last couple of years, the popularity of car modification or better
known as‘modding’has risen tremendously. This new type of hobby involves adding or changing
parts of the car to enhance either its looks, performance or even both.
Although the modded cars look cool and all, it is still an expensive hobby to
keep up with.
For those who have lots of cash to burn, modding true sports cars and roadsters
can be the coolest thing in the world. After all, who wouldn’t dream of riding in one of these perfectly tuned up and tweaked beauties? But
of course, not many of us is that fortunate, and for us, average Joe on the
street, we will have to content ourselves with modding cars like sports sedans,
hatchbacks or any other cars we can get our hands on, such as the diesel truck
in the garage.
Although the diesel truck does not fit in the same category or class as your
everyday cars, but it is still a metal box running on four wheels in the end.
And because of this reason alone, there shouldn’t be any prohibition from modding the truck inside out.
While the usual exterior modification on cars are skirtings, bumpers, hoods and
aftermarket lamps, diesel trucks offer a whole new list of custom changes such
as bed liners for pickups, bull bars or even high-powered halogen lamps for the
complete off-road experience. If that is not enough, add some custom vinyl and
your truck will be a definite showstopper on the road.
On the other hand, for the interior, the modification is pretty much the same
in all types of vehicles except for maybe some minor additions such as the
truck door sills. However, the main aim is always to design the truck so that
it gives a as close as possible similar driving experience as a normal car.
Popular choices of interior modifications include fancy gauges, redesigned
dashboard panels and leather finishes.
If you think that is all you can do to your truck, you are clearly mistaken, my
friend. Because any real motor-heads will be able to tell you right away that
to really show what’s the car worth is by what’s packing under the hood. This is where the real pride and joy of all modders
come from. Although the practice differs slightly from your normal car, the
essence of performance boost remains the same in diesel truck modification
which consists of air intake modules, boost-increase valves, performance
inclined clutches, and the ever essential, turbochargers.
Although the diesel trucks modding culture is already at a respectable level by
itself, it still failed to keep up with other types of cars. Nevertheless, the
public nowadays is more accepting of these new stylish vehicles which resemble
a luxury car than its predecessor which were built to carry heavy loads.
As the world of diesel truck modding continue to grow at a rapid pace, the day
when the road is filled with roaring engines and fancy bodywork‘pimped’trucks is not so far off. Who knows, you could be the proud owner of one of
