Top 10 Accessories for Customizing Your Truck’s Interior

A truck isn’t just a vehicle—it’s a statement of personal style, functionality, and tailored-to-you comfort. Whether you’re exploring rugged terrain, cruising down interstates, or navigating urban streets, customizing your truck’s interior can transform your driving experience—enhancing your well-being and elevating the aesthetic.

Here’s our “Top 10” list (well, actually, 11!) of accessories that will make your truck look and feel like your own:

1. Custom seat covers

Custom seat covers are a great way to add a personalized touch to your truck while safeguarding your seats from spills and general wear and tear. With materials like neoprene, leather, or durable fabric in a variety of designs, patterns, and colors, there’s no shortage of ways to customize your ride. If you really want to go all-out, consider working with a company to develop custom embroidery or embossing with your initials—or coordinate with your favorite sports team!

2. Floor mats and liners

Keeping the floors of our trucks clean is a never-ending battle, especially if you do a fair amount of off-roading. Investing in high-quality, custom-fit floor mats or liners not only makes keeping your truck clean a breeze, but they also provide an added layer of protection to your truck’s flooring. Similar to seat covers, floor mats and liners are infinitely customizable, too. 

3. Interior LED lighting

How about a little mood lighting? LED light strips can be installed under your truck seats, along the dashboard, or in footwells to add a subtle yet striking effect every time someone enters your vehicle. Choose from a spectrum of colors, or opt for a smart lighting system that syncs with music or can change according to your preferences—the possibilities are endless!

4. Custom steering wheel

From sleek, leather-wrapped designs to sporty models with ergonomic grips, a custom steering wheel has the ability to upgrade your daily driving experience almost instantly. However, remember that not all after-market steering wheels may fit your truck, so keep a lookout for those that are easy to install, complement your style, and offer a comfortable grip for those long drives or days out in the elements.

5. Center console organizer

For some of us, our trucks are our mobile offices as well as our preferred way to travel long distances—and all the items we attempt to jam into our center consoles are proof of how much we use our vehicles. Maximize storage and keep essentials within easy reach by adding a center console organizer. These accessories are designed to optimize the available space, providing compartments for phones and other electronics, sunglasses, writing utensils and documents, and other items. Some organizers even feature built-in charging ports so you don’t have to worry about cords and adapters. 

6. Entertainment systems and audio 

Let’s be real: long journeys—or days out adventuring—are so much more enjoyable with your favorite music or movies. Consider installing an upgraded, high-quality sound system, a multimedia touchscreen, or even a rear-seat entertainment set-up to keep passengers of all ages entertained. Options such as Bluetooth connectivity and smartphone integration can further create a seamless entertainment experience. 

7. Custom dashboard covers

UV rays are your car interior’s worst enemy. Unprotected, the temperature on your truck’s dashboard can climb well past 100 degrees Fahrenheit in a matter of minutes, contributing to the breakdown of a variety of interior materials, including plastic, leather, carbon fiber, and wood—causing both fading and cosmetic damage. Avoiding this damage can be as easy as investing in a custom dashboard cover. Bonus: these covers come in a variety of colors, materials, and textures, allowing you to match them to your customized steering wheel and seat covers. 

8. Performance gauges

Monitor your truck’s performance with aftermarket gauges. From keeping an eye on your engine temperature and oil pressing to observing boost levels in turbocharged trucks, these gauges can provide valuable real-time data—and can be mounted directly to your dashboard or your truck’s A-pillar for easy visibility.

9. Front and rear multi-mount panels

Developed and manufactured by the team at Desert Does It, our front multi-mount panel is a specialized under seat molle panel system that mounts to the front of your truck’s driver or passenger seat. Our unique honeycomb design allows you to use basic hardware, nylon or velcro straps around the panel—creating easy access to frequently-used tools or emergency equipment such as flashlights, fire extinguishers, handguns, axes, knives, or tool rolls. The flexible design means you can mount items to the front, back, or both sides of the panels.  

10. Under seat air compressor mount

If you’re like us and have never liked the idea of mounting your air compressor out in the elements, this accessory is for you. Our air compressor mount offers easy access to your compressor without fumbling through your engine bay, truck bed, or rear cargo area—and allows you to mount any ViAir or ARB compressor under your driver or passenger seat. Front and rear seat jackers are required to install the under seat air compressor mount—the compressor won’t fit otherwise—which leads us to…

BONUS!! Best interior mod is Seat risers or Seat Jackers

As much as it would be great if all truck seats were custom-built for their owners, that’s simply not the case. However, there’s a cost-effective solution to increase seat comfort and support—Seat Jackers. These easy-to-install accessories slide under the legs of your truck’s seat to lift it to an optimal angle for better leg support—anywhere from .3 to 1.25 inches. It’s that shift in angle that makes a huge difference, with many of our customers reporting better posture, less lower back pain, improved blood circulation, a better line of sight while driving, and easier entry and exit of their vehicles.

Seat Jackers are available for most mainstream truck makes and models—and Desert Does It also offers Seat Jackers specifically designed to fit popular trucks like the Toyota Tacoma, Jeep Wrangler, and Ford F-150. 

Customizing your truck’s interior gives you the best of all worlds—it allows you to express your personality through the lens of your vehicle, and it also helps you to feel more comfortable while driving in it from day-to-day. Whether you prioritize style, convenience, or utility, these accessories can give you the tools to take your truck’s interior to the next level.

One reminder: before purchasing any accessories, be sure they’re compatible with your truck’s make and model for a seamless fit and installation. It’s all part of the process to transform your truck into your own high-performing haven.
