TRP® Chrome-Plated and Stainless Steel Parts Help Truck Operators Stand Out
RENTON, Wash., Aug. 1, 2011 — TRP Aftermarket Parts announces the availability of a chrome and stainless line of accessories for image-conscious owners and operators.
TRP chrome-plated and stainless steel parts are manufactured with tested 304-grade or 430-grade stainless steel to resist corrosion, while chrome plating provides a uniform, attractive finish.
“They’re also made using high-quality tooling,” said Everett Seymoure, global brand manager for TRP Aftermarket Parts. Tooling gives the parts smooth lines, symmetry and excellent fit, an important detail for those truck owners and operators who appreciate quality aesthetics.
“Truck owners looking at keeping their trucks a few more years or selling them on the used market should consider the potential value to be gained from having TRP chrome and stainless accessories,” Seymoure said. “If you want to have an edge over the competition, your trucks not only have to look clean and run like clockwork under the hood, they really have to stand out in a crowd.”
“TRP Aftermarket Parts chrome and stainless parts help truck owners and operators make the best first impression with potential shippers and customers or with equipment buyers at resale,” he added. “You don’t usually get second chances to make a good impression. Plus, they make trucks look great for the pride and polish shows.”
“There’s also the benefit of durability with long-lasting performance and attractive appearance in choosing quality chrome and stainless accessories,” Seymoure said.
“For example, TRP stainless steel or chrome-plated axle and hub covers with screw-on wheel nut covers, instead of pop-on installation features, are less likely to fall off. That reduces replacement costs,” he added.
“Another example is the 10-gauge TRP steel bumper, which strikes the right balance between weight and strength. It can protect the truck and its tires from damage from road hazards,” he said. Plus, its stainless steel won’t crack, pit, peel, rust or fade and can be polished to restore its original finish.
“Or for operators who need to watch their weight, TRP offers OE-quality stainless steel clad aluminum bumpers that offer a mirror-bright finish 20 times thicker than chrome-plated bumpers,” Seymoure said. “And they can be rebuffed to original condition.”
