3 Best Accessories for Your Lifted GMC Truck

New GMC Sierra 2500HD With Side Steps | Stillwater, OK

If you went all-out when you bought your GMC truck and upgraded it with a lift kit, odds are you’re no stranger to vehicle modifications. To bring your lifted model to the height of capability and fun, there are tons of accessories you can buy right here at Wilson Buick GMC in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Here are the add-ons we recommend most.

A Drop Hitch

If you plan to use your lifted GMC truck to pull a boat or camper, you’re going to need a drop hitch. This helpful accessory extends the hitch down to match the height of the trailer, so everything stays on the same level.

Side Steps

Getting in to or out of a massive truck like the GMC Sierra HD can be tricky under normal circumstances, and adding a lift kit only makes it more of a climb. Adding side steps or a running board gives you easy access to the cabin, which is particularly helpful for young passengers.

A Cylinder Assist Steering Kit

The gargantuan tires on lifted trucks can make turning feel less responsive, which is a problem for a vehicle that’s meant to be fun to drive. A cylinder-assist steering kit can mitigate this issue by optimizing your engine’s torque to compensate.

Tips for Working From Your Car

Working From Your Car | Stillwater, OK

If you are currently working from home, moving your office from your house to your car may be a great idea if you are wanting a change of scenery. To be productive while working from your car, be sure to follow these three tips.

Use your car’s Bluetooth®

If you need to take a business call while in your car, connect to your car’s Bluetooth® in order to minimize background noise. Many Bluetooth® systems allow the person on the other end of the call to hear your voice clearly and hear little of road noises. Take advantage of this convenient feature to ensure a quality call, even when you’re not driving.

Move around

Your vehicle presents multiple options to have a comfortable working space. If you’re working in the driver’s seat, raise the steering wheel and push your seat back to have more room. You can also sit in the rear row, where the center console can function as a desk. If you work from a truck, you can use the truck bed as a standing desk.

Clean the area

It’s important to keep your workspace uncluttered to maximize productivity, whether that be a conventional office space or your car office. Regularly get rid of trash and sanitize the cabin to better stay focused and relaxed in a clean car.

Midterm Studying Tips

Studying Tips | Stillwater, OK

You can always tell when midterms are approaching because every college student starts chewing their fingernails, drinking more coffee, sleeping less. Fret not college brethren and sisters. Here are a few midterm studying tips to help you ace those exams so you can focus on the joys of being home for the holidays.

  1. Bring your books with you everywhere

You never know when you’re going to get a few minutes to yourself, perhaps in a waiting room, and sometimes fifteen minutes is all you need to memorize a few terms or solve a few test prep questions. This is especially true if you are doing any traveling for the holidays, as long car trips are perfect opportunity to do some serious reading.

  1. Find an isolated place to study

This doesn’t always necessarily mean hiding behind the stacks in the library; perhaps you just got a new car for Christmas. Drive it to a quiet library, coffee shop, or other solitary place where you can get some studying in a distractions-free environment.

  1. Take a drive

Make sure to take a study break from time to time, to help you stay sane from now until midterms.  Going for a leisurely drive is an easy way to do this.
