If you use your truck to the fullest, then you probably get more than a little mud on it. Paint protection is the perfect Reno truck accessory for someone who wants to wear their work without it leaving a mark.
Increase the performance of your truck with cold air intakes. This accessory allows dense, cold air to enter the engine. Because cold air is dense, the combustions it makes is larger and more powerful. A more powerful combustion means a more powerful truck.
Just like cold air intakes, performance exhausts provide the power. Normal factory exhausts are bent, meaning air and gas have a harder time escaping. Many aftermarket truck accessories are better constructed to allow much more air and gas to escape. Your truck will run better than ever before.
Your truck isn’t complete without a pair of running boards. TSA Custom Car and Truck has a large inventory of running boards, including nerf, steps, and automatic folding boards. Make your life easier with the perfect running boards for you.
Keep those dark nights bright when traveling through Reno and the Sierras with driving/fog lamps. We’ll install them and make sure they will brighten up your drive.
Your truck isn’t ready for mudding without some splash guards. Keep your paint protected from rocks and gravel as you tear through the mud, and look good doing it too.
Half the fun about upgrading your truck is making it feel like your own. Custom wheels are undoubtedly the first accessory all truck owners will upgrade. At TSA Custom Car and Truck, we carry a wide range of brands from American Eagle Wheel Corporation, Mickey Thompson, Large Rim Group, Fuel, ProComp, and Wheel Pros.
You can’t just have custom wheels without our custom tires. Some of our premier brands include Toyo, Nitto, Firestone, Dunlop, and BF Goodrich, just to name a few. Once you have your tires picked out we’ll mount and balance them too.

When you love your car, every knick hurts. Whether it’s your dream car or fresh off the lot, we understand that you would want your car to stay in perfect condition. You may have looked into the many ways to protect the paint job on your car. Luckily, there is one option that stands above the rest: car paint protection film.
What is Car Paint Protection?
Sometimes referred to as a clear bra, clear film, or PPF, paint protection film is a clear or colored polyurethane film that is applied directly onto a vehicle by a trained professional. In what was originally only used for military purposes, paint protection film has been adopted throughout the world from commercial cars to professional Nascar race car teams.
1. Protects Damage to Your Car
So what does paint protection actually protect against? When applied to a car, the film absorbs a wide range of damages. These include
- Rock scratches
- Winter Salt
- UV Rays
Paint protection film is essentially a shield for your car.
2. Preserves Your Car’s Paint
As mentioned on the list, paint protection film preserves you car’s paint job. Everyday your car is hit with UV Rays that slowly wither away the paint on your car. Clear bras absorb those harmful rays that would be otherwise be causing discoloration on your car.
3. Enhances the Appearance of Your Car
Not only does protection film protect you car’s paint job, but it also enhances the look of your car. Paint protection film adds a polished and sleek-look combined with a high-gloss finish that will make your car look better than when it was on the lot.
4. Saves You Money
When you are passionate about your car, you want to keep it in tip-top shape all the time. Unfortunately, the costs for constant upkeep can really add up. Paint protection film, or “clear bras” keep your car from ever needing upkeep in the first place. That extra saved money can be used to further upgrade your car even more.
5. Increases the Value of Your Car
The moment you drive your car off the lot, your car significantly depreciates in value. Unless you are willing to spend money towards upkeep, every scratch and knick on your car decreases your re-sale value.

The Right Truck Parts for the Right Tow Job
It doesn’t take a truck enthusiast to know that towing is a huge deal. Whether you consider yourself a truck expert, or just a towing novice, knowing what you’ll need streamlines the task at hand. TSA has the ultimate selection of truck parts Reno and Carson City area. We have made a list comprising of all the towing products you’ll need, novice or not.
Cabover Tie Downs – Security and Stability
If you are looking to haul a camper, securing it with a cabover tie down will keep your camper steady and secure. There are two kinds of tie downs that can achieve this, bed-mounted and frame-mounted. Bed-mounted tie downs are cheaper, but over time their mediocre durability will wear down and even damage your truck bed. On the other hand, frame-mounted tie downs are both durable and strong, giving your truck the most stable foundation.
TSA carries a wide variety of camper tie downs including popular products such as TRUE Frame-mounted tie downs and FastGun turnbuckles.
Hitches – Something you should get attached to
When it comes to towing, a good hitch is vital to the success of your job. Whether it be towing your ATVs or motorbikes out to the desert, your RV up to the Sierras, your boat out to the lake, or just hauling some building materials back home for a project, you’ll need a hitch that can pull its weight (literally!)
TSA Custom Car and Truck has a full selection of hitches ranging from Super Hitch to B&W Trailer Hitches. Ready to get hitched? Get your’s here!
Tow Bars should be on the front of your mind, and your truck
While a hitch is attached to the back of the car for towing, a tow bar is attached to the front of the vehicle or trailer being towed. And just like a hitch, a tow bar is just as important. TSA is the premier stop for all truck parts Reno.

Paint Protection – Keep Your Car Looking Good
Of all the car accessories, the easiest and most effective way you can upgrade your car is with paint protection. Paint protection film is an invisible shield that prevents your car’s paint job from degrading. Brands like Llumar and XPEL provide incredible paint protection films that protect against:
-small road debris
-bugs and insects
-winter sand and salts
Not only do paint protection films keep your car looking great, but they also enhance your car’s resale value!
Cold Air Intakes – Better Air, Better Performance
Many engine modifications are expensive, time-consuming, and not really worth it. Cold air intake may just be the most undervalued car accessory you can put on your engine. Fairly inexpensive and easy to install, cold air intakes make your engine more powerful. Cold air intakes move the air filter outside the engine so that cooler air can enter the engine to combust. Colder air is more dense, which means better combustion, which means more power coming out of your engine. Sounds pretty good, right?
Performance Exhausts -Making Your Car Breath Better
Where cold air intakes improve your vehicle’s “inhale”, performance exhausts improve your vehicle’s “exhale”. Factory exhaust systems, typically referred to as “crush-bend” systems, contain a crinkled area of the pipe that slows down the escape of gas. Less gas that can escape means that your car won’t be able to perform as well as it should. One solution comes in the form of an aftermarket exhaust product referred to as a “mandrel bend”. A mandrel bend keeps the diameter of the pipe consistent throughout the whole pipe. This consistency allows for more air and gas to exit the pipe. Performance exhausts make some of the perfect car accessories.
When you think of suspension, you probably automatically think of off-roading. However, your car can benefit from a suspension upgrade even if your car is just used for cruising. Car accessories that upgrade suspension with sway bars and coil springs will make your car more grounded and stable. A more grounded car will have an easier time accelerating and turning.
Of course, if you live in Nevada, then off-roading is probably why you are looking for suspension. According to TSA Custom Truck and Cart, replacing your shocks, struts, sleeves, springs, and mounts will make your car ready for the dirt trails. Your shocks and struts will make your car capable of taking on rocky and uneven roads. Upgraded sleeves make your car’s struts rebound better when taking a hit while also reducing the nose dive your car does when braking. Lastly, new motor mounts will lessen engine rocking and give it more pull when you accelerate.
Wheels and Tires
Nothing improves the look and feel of your car like a new set of wheels. Whether it be for performance, luxury, or just to raise your truck even higher, TSA’s has the perfect aftermarket tire and wheel packages to satisfy your needs. TSA’s selection ranges from classic brands such as Firestone and Bridgestone to more advanced products from the likes of American Eagle Wheel and Mickey Thompson.
