2. Tie-Downs and Tow Hooks
Since the whole point of having a pickup truck is to carry around large loads, you’ll need to make sure you have all of the necessary steel hooks and tie-down straps. Although many vehicles come with these essential truck accessories, they’re often not adequate for securing larger and heavier loads. Although rope tie-downs are the cheaper option, those featuring ratchets are stronger and more versatile, and they don’t need to be tied, since they have hooks that attach directly to the frame of the truck bed.
