Per the motto of House Stark, winter is coming. While winterizing any vehicle is important and includes the basics like testing your battery, topping off your fluids, and checking your heater, trucks need some special attention, especially if you plan to take them out for some joyrides in the snow. Make sure your Silverado or Colorado is ready for a Rocky Mountain winter with these helpful tips to prepare your truck for winter.
It’s All About the Lube
If you want your truck to truly enjoy the longevity it was built to have, you’re going to need to spend some time lubing it up ahead of winter. Lube all the locks and door hinges, as well as the tailgate latch and spare tire mechanism.
Don’t Forget the Wax
Your truck can handle the extreme road conditions of the Rocky Mountain winter, so it’s likely you’ll leave your car in the garage in favor of your truck. With potentially increased use this winter, you’ll want to give your truck a good coat of wax on the paint and bright surfaces.
Take Care of Your Weather Stripping
Snow and freezing rain can “glue” your weather stripping together, which could make it difficult to get in your truck doors. Use a silicon product to treat the stripping.
