I was looking for a thread to guide people on best practices as a whole for doing things proactively on your car (not just normal required maintenance). Solid good things that at least the majority would agree to. Not to create performance or looks just good things to make the truck last or create a better experience. I know everyone is different. My car has 2k miles on it now.
- Washed, polished, and waxed (as dealerships suck at detailing that lasts)
- Bought new floor mats that can handle nasty mud and snow (I personally use Weathertech but everyone has their faves)
- I have two kids and a sloppy eating wife, so I Scotchguarded the heck out of everything absorbent carpet/seats (plan on doing it a few times a year)
- Under seat storage or under front seats for supplies based on your needs (I currently have a real tire iron, rope, bungee cords, towel, track cleats, spare hitch pin, etc. which works for me but will change constantly)
- I am thinking to move to synthetic after 3k miles
- Possibly moving to a better air filter
- Better fluids?
