Caring for Your Truck Caps

The warm weather has finally arrived and Chicago is coming out of hibernation. From washing cars to tackling long overdue yard work to taking trips, Chicagoans are getting outdoors again. One must-have for spring and summer is a pickup truck. Pickup trucks can haul what’s needed for work and play. And, what’s a pickup truck without a truck cap?

Why truck caps?

For one, buying a truck cap is a great investment. In addition to increasing your trucks cargo holding capacity, they also give your truck that nice custom look. Many truck caps come equipped with locks, so you can keep your tools and other valuable items secure in your truck bed. 

Plus, commercial truck caps can be configured to meet your specific workload. Made out of commercial grade aluminum, these rugged truck caps enhance your truck’s storage capabilities and the way you work out of your truck.

They are also incredibly easy to care for! The best way to keep truck caps looking great is with proper cleaning and care. You can learn plenty more about how to keep them clean and many of the other the benefits of truck caps at our showroom. However, truck caps are relatively easy to care for, so here’s the truck cap care 101. Here are a few things to keep in mind and you’ll be good to go:

Treat any fresh paint with some extra TLC for the first 30 days. Go ahead and use a power washer or a touch-less car wash during this “paint curing” period. Just avoid letting anything rub on the paint. No microfiber clothes, and no car washes with brushes and so on.

Do not wax for the first 60 days. After 60 days, go ahead and wash and wax your truck cap as you would your truck using the same cleaning and wax products.

With proper cleaning and care your topper will last for many years to come. Come on down and see us, and we can show you many of the other the benefits of truck caps at our showroom.
