Let’s face it, the best way to make something good look even better is to accessorise – you can never go wrong with this! When it comes to adding both functional and aesthetic value to your bakkie, accessorising can be the best way to go. From tents and water tanks to lights and racks, there are so many ways you can add a bit of flair to your bakkie.

In this blog, we’re going to take a quick look at a few of the best bakkie accessories you can invest in today.

Roof racks

At the top of today’s list is the always-classic roof rack. Roof racks are a functional accessory you can add to your bakkie, provided that it’s fitted with a canopy. Roof racks give your bakkie that much more capability to carry more loads, something that is almost priceless for service bakkies.

Bakkie roof racks come in different shapes and sizes and are mostly used to carry items that wouldn’t fit on the bed of your bakkie, including ladders, pipes, and brackets. Roof racks can also be used to haul around bicycles with ease and safety. Get in touch with us today to learn more about what a quality roof rack can do for your bakkie!


Bull bars

Ready to get your tough on by transforming your bakkie from a road vehicle to an off-road beast? You sure? Great! Bull bars are the exact bakkie accessory you’re looking for. Bull bars are bars that are fitted to the front of a bakkie; they come in several different shapes, materials, sizes, and configurations.

Bull bars offer protection against a myriad of harmful obstacles (especially when travelling off-road, including logs, banks, and scrubs. Bull bars are also effective at protecting your bakkie should you get into a front-end collision with a wall, a barricade, or another vehicle. Not to mention, riding around in a 4WD with the toughest bull bars on the market can also make you feel like you own the road – why not give it a try?


Spot lights

Last, but certainly not least on our list are spotlights. If you go all in on a set of tough bull bars, it would be a crime not to invest in macho LED spotlights. If you’re an off-road junkie, spotlights might just help save your life when you need to navigate in the dark – this applies to on-road use as well!

Spotlights allow you to pierce further through any veil of darkness that may hinder your journey, all the while giving your bakkie a sporty look and feel. Spotlights do however have a problem of being too reflective on the bonnet of your vehicle when at full blast, thus compromising the gain of visibility, but this can be easily fixed by painting your bonnet with a darker shade.
