A Ford F-150 interior trim kit can help you transform the cabin of your favorite truck and make it more aesthetically pleasing. While even the standard F-150 features some of the best interior gadgetry, cost constraints mean not every model has everything owners want, and that is where you can use kits to get the best out of your pickup.
What Is a Ford F-150 Interior Trim Kit?
Interior trim accessories are items you can use to improve the aesthetics, function, and style of your F-150 truck. These accessories can help enhance your pickup’s looks, add bespoke capabilities, and improve safety and performance. Whether you want to add wireless charging functionality, cover up stains or scratches on your dash or seats, or add a luxurious feel to your controls, interior trim kits can help you achieve premium results on a budget.
There are several interior trim accessories, with different installation processes. Some come with an installation kit that may be as simple as a glue backing while others only require clips to function. Whatever the interior trim kit you want to buy for your F-150 truck, the most important thing is to choose a product that is compatible with your vehicle.
Types of Ford F-150 Interior Trim Kits
The following are some of the most common interior trim kits for the Ford F-150 truck:
Dash Trim Kit
The dash trim is one of the most popular interior trim kits F-150 owners buy. They come in a wide range of designs, including flat and molded dash trim kits. These kits are designed to conform to the shape of your dash and you can choose from a wide range of materials such as wood, veneer, aluminum, carbon fiber, fabric, and other synthetics.
Floor mats can help keep the interior of your vehicle tidy and also make it more beautiful. These accessories can also make it easier to clean your truck and can accentuate the overall feel of your interior styling. Floor mats come in a wide range of colors and materials and are also relatively affordable.
Shifter Plate Trim
If your shifter is old and tearing or breaking on the sides, a chrome-plated trim can add more sizzle to its look. Not only do these trims make your shifter more beautiful, but they can also make the figures on an automatic transmission gear stick more legible, which can make it easier to change driving modes.
Many people love their F-150 truck to have knob controls because they provide a physical connection and a more retro feel. However, many knob controls are made of plastic and may feel cheap. With knob covers, you can upgrade the look and feel of these important interfaces. Knob covers can come in various designs and colors, but many people prefer chrome colored and even woody types.
Interior Dim Switch Trim Plate
If you travel at night, chances are the area around your truck’s dim switch will be dirty from constant fiddling. One way to make the area more pleasing to the eyes and easier to clean is by adding a dim switch trim plate. You can choose from a wide range of colors to match your interior styling or even make that part of your truck stand out aesthetically.
Seat covers provide an affordable and practical way to make your old, worn, or stained F-150 truck seats look pristine, like new. You can choose from leather, fabric, and a wide range of other materials. Besides helping to cover the deformities on your old cushions, seat covers can also make your pickup interior more comfortable and visually appealing. Plus, they are very easy to install, protect your seats from moisture and stains, and are easy to clean.
Front Door Handle Pull Plates
The front door handle pull plates, especially on the driver’s side, are probably the most used part on a vehicle after the exterior driver door handle. This means they can wear quickly and lose color, thanks to the consistent contact with your hands. Thankfully, you can upgrade the look of the door handle pull plates with an interior trim kit. You can choose from chrome or wood designs and even fabric and leather trims.
AC/Vent Trim Covers
You can also choose from a wide range of AC/vent covers to make your car interior look beautiful. Chrome trim covers deliver excellent results in this role, but you can also get other materials and colors of your choosing.
How to Choose Ford F-150 Interior Trim Kits
Consider the following when choosing Ford F-150 interior trim kits:
When choosing an interior trim kit, the design is an important consideration because it can affect the overall finish and utility of the product. If you are installing dash kits, molded trims are more suitable for cars with larger, curvy dashboards. For a vehicle with a smaller, flatter dash surface, flat-shaped kits may work better.
The material of the product is another important factor. Chrome, veneer, and wood interior trims deliver the best visual appeal and may also last longer. However, they are also more expensive. Plastic and synthetic interior trims are cheaper to buy, but may not be as rugged. Whatever you do, make sure you get the best value for your budget.
Before buying any interior trim, you want to make sure it is compatible with your truck. Now, this can be difficult to achieve since most people buy these items online. However, you can save yourself a lot of trouble by going through the reviews to check for honest feedback from people who’ve bought the product. Some vendors will include pictures of how the interior trim kit will look after installation on specific model years and makes.
Most interior trim kits are easy to install. However, read through the instructions to understand the installation process before you buy. If you have to get a professional to install the item, you are going to spend more on the kit. It may be advisable to choose DIY-able interior trim kits so you can stay within your budget.
