Just take a moment and imagine. You are driving a truck at night in a road that stretches on for miles and miles. When you look around you, you can only see the darkness as trees block the path of the moonlight. There is no hint of other vehicles or even a house. There is nothing. Just you and the road ahead of you. Then all of a sudden, your headlights flicker and die down. A shiver runs through your spine and your fingers tighten their grip on the wheel. Fear grips your heart as darkness envelopes your vehicle.
You quickly switch on the lights within the vehicle but it is not enough. You still cannot see most of the road. However you continue to drive. For a while everything seems alright. Yes the headlights are not working but then everything is working perfectly fine but then all of a sudden, you start losing speed. You press the accelerator but nothing happens. At that moment you can smell the smoke. Panic starts to flood your brain as you realize your engine has burned out.
What just happened?
The above would be the consequence of not maintaining your truck.
When you do not carry out regular maintenance on your vehicle, crucial components can fail. Be it the engine, the gear, box, the suspension or even the lights. Maintenance is like the shower you take. If you go without it, you would ultimately have a heat stroke and die. The same way when a vehicle is not maintained components could wear off and break down. Sometimes you can fix the components; otherwise you would have to replace them. Either way it is very expensive.
Regular maintenance on the other hand is much cheaper. Certain components would require maintenance checks everyday sucks as air compressors would have to be checked for water after every trip. On the other hand in frame engine service should be done after a million miles.
When it comes to lighting on the other hand you should make sure you have good lighting installed. So buy LED flood lights or fog lights. Just make sure your vehicle has a good pair of lights and if they flicker, you should get it fixed.
The same goes to tires. Always make sure that you put a good pair of tires for your truck. Never try to buy cheap tires of a lesser quality because they could wear easily and you would have to replace them more often. Thus always conduct regular maintenance on your truck and buy good quality tires and truck lighting accessories.
This could cost you far less in the long run and ensure that your vehicle does not break down and isn’t that something you would want?
