If your hubby is anything like mine, his truck is one of his most prized possessions. He takes pride in it, and if there is any way for him to increase the value of his truck, he's all for it. (Not to mention that usually means he gets to add a few more goodies to it, and he loves that, too!) 🙂
We've partnered with Miracle Chrysler Dodge Jeep to bring you these 5 Easy Ways to Increase the Value of Your Truck.

Here they are, in no particular order.
Having a bed liner installed will not only increase the value of your truck but it will allow you to haul stuff without worrying about the bed getting scratched up. And protecting your asset means that you won't lose value because of damage.
Okay so this is a sore subject for me. I kid you not, every single time my husband gets new tires on his truck, he trades the sucker in before we even get them paid off. Every. Single. Time.
But the truth is, new tires really do increase the value of your truck. If the tires are in excellent shape (or brand new) you're sure to get more bang for your buck when you go to trade up. Trust me on this, I know.
I was browsing on gearhungry.com and I found a great way to protect your fenders from rock chips, fender flares are also pretty stylish oops I mean manly (ha ha!). The cool thing is that you can get them to stand out or to match the color of your truck, and both are totally different looks.
Now this is a way to increase the value of your truck that I can really get excited about. Installing a kickin stereo is something that, if you're a music lover, you might want to consider.
Then again, many new models these days come with an awesome stereo already. But if you're looking to upgrade your older truck, installing a good stereo before you do so will help you get a little more cash when you go to trade it in.
If I had a nickel for every time we took our truck in for one of these…let's just say I wouldn't be blogging for a living. Ha!
But really, a lift kit does make a truck look nicer, and dealerships do notice it when you go to trade it in.
So there you have it, 5 easy ways to increase the value of your truck. Even if you can't do all of these, even doing one will help. Also, do what works for you and what you and your guy like the most.
And honey….don't even think about looking at tires right now, I mean it! 🙂
