An Exploration of Properly Maintained Automotive Suspension Components

Hi there, my name is Hedrick Simmons. Welcome to my website about automotive suspension components. My first vehicle purchase resulted in a crash course about the importance of excellent suspension components. The vehicle was bouncy and unwieldly while driving along rough roadways. At first, I thought this was normal, but as I learned more, I discovered that there was a way to fix this annoying problem. I decided to upgrade my suspension with helpful components and repair the items that exhibited wear and tear or damage. With this approach, I was able to restore my suspension components and enjoy a smooth ride in my vehicle. My site will explore these matters and much more. Come back again soon.

Starting Up A Tow Truck Company? 2 Types Of Light Bars You Can Put On Your Trucks

by Brandie Gordon

If you are starting up a tow truck company, you will need many things. One of these things you may want to consider is adding tow truck light bars to your trucks. This can help keep you and your drivers safe when they get a call during the night time hours. These bars along with the headlights on the trucks will give the drivers much more visibility. Below are two different types of light bars you can use so you can decide what you would like to purchase for your tow trucks.

LED Light Bars

LED light bars are beneficial because the lights last a long time and they give you great visibility. You can choose LED light bars that are in one color, such as clear or red, or you can choose light bars that are multi colored. You can also choose how often and how long you want the lights to flash, and set the lights to stay solid also, if you prefer.  

Full sized light bars will go across the entire truck, so the lights are easily visible. There are also light bars of varying lengths. The lights can generally go in different directions, such as starting in the center and going out, starting on the left and going to the right, or starting on the right and going to the left.

Once the light bars are installed you simply press a button inside the cab to turn them on or off.

Amber Light Bars

Amber light bars can come with LED or halogen lights. The bar can stretch across the full length of the truck. Amber lights are beneficial because the lights are not bright, so they will not bother other drivers. The lights are still easily seen, however.

When you have the amber lights on this tells other drivers that your truck is going slower than normal. You can choose light bars that are solid, or you can have them blinking.

You can choose amber light bars that permanently attach to your truck, or you can choose lights that have suction cups that you can take on and off easily. Even though these lights are an amber color they still provide you will a bright enough light to increase visibility at night.

No matter what type of light bar you choose, they will either attach to the battery or some plug into an outlet inside the truck, such as a cigarette lighter
