The Best Chevy Silverado Accessories You Can Buy
The Chevy Silverado is one of Chevrolet's most popular trucks, for work, play, and everything in between. They have consistently sold more than 300,000 Silverados every year since 2000, with peak sales topping 700,000 per year. With long-term popularity like that, it is no surprise that there is a thriving market for after-market customizations and accessories for the Silverado. The sheer volume of Chevy Silverado Accessories 2021 sold could match the GDP of several small countries.
Today, we’ll be looking at some of the most popular Chevy Silverado accessories from a variety of different manufacturers, but most especially from DECKED. Before we do, though, let’s look at the iconic American pickup, and why it has been so popular over its 24-year life so far.
The Chevy Silverado Line
The Chevy Silverado was introduced in 1999 as the successor to the Chevy C/K. The Silverado line includes medium-duty trucks, chassis cab trucks, and full-size pickups
The first generation of Chevy Silverado (GMT800) models had an unusually long run, lasting as it did into the 2007 model year. Mechanically, the first generation of Silverados had a great deal in common with the GMC Sierra. The 2008 model year saw both the Silverado 1500 and 2500 released, alongside sister models Sierra 1500 and Sierra 2500.
The second generation of Chevy Silverados (GMY900) lasted from 2007 to 2014, another very respectable run. This generation saw redesigns of the body, frame, interior, and suspension, as well as power increases for some of the engines. This was the model that won both North American Truck of the Year and Motor Trend Truck of the Year in 2007.
The third generation (K2XX) lasted 5 years, between the 2014 and 2019 model year. This was considered by some to be a shaky period, as both the 2015 and 2016 models were recalled 8 separate times. However, customer satisfaction with the line remained high, and the later models in that generation had fewer problems.
As of 2019, the Chevy Silverado is in its 4th generation. This model of Chevy Silverado 1500 features headlights integrated into the grille, daytime running accent lamps, and a more sculpted exterior than earlier generations.
The Silverado is among the best-selling vehicles in the United States, and serves as a direct competitor for the Toyota Tundra, the Nissan Titan, the Dodge Ram, and the Ford F-Series. Heavy duty versions of the Silverado are sold as the Chevy Cheyenne in Mexico. We make versions of the DECKED Drawer System and the DECKED Tool Box especially for late model Chevy Silverados, as well as for many other popular truck types.
Now let’s take a closer look at some of the best Chevy truck accessories you can buy today, both from DECKED and other manufacturers:
2021 Chevy Silverado Accessories
The DECKED Drawer System – Storage And Bed Protection In One
The DECKED Drawer System might be one of the most useful 2021 Chevy Silverado accessories on the market. At first it might appear to be just another bed protector, but there is a lot under the surface – literally. Beneath the high-impact resin deck lies a pair of utility drawers which can each hold up to 1,000 pounds of equipment.
The DECKED Drawer System is completely weatherproof and securely lockable, so you can transport tools, sporting gear, or other supplies in safety and security. It also makes your gear easily accessible, as the drawers open at waist height.
DECKED’s revolutionary tool and cargo solution even eliminates the need for a tonneau cover. It improves the aerodynamics of your Chevy Silverado dramatically without interfering with the use of the bed. In fact, since it mounts over the wheel wells, you can use the entire length and width of the bed for more types of cargo.
The DECKED Drawer System is made of recyclable material, and already includes post-recycled materials. Don’t worry, though. It has plenty of steel and aluminum reinforcement to help carry any load you need it to.

Perhaps more importantly, though, they keep air moving without allowing rain and weather into the cab. They even reduce wind noise when driving with the windows down.
Most vent visors are very easy to install using only a strip of 3M automotive tape each. Because they keep your windows vented, you will notice dramatically less heat build-up when parked in the sun.
How Environmentally Friendly Are The Chevy Silverado Accessories You Buy?
This isn’t something we’re used to thinking about, but the ecological value of the plastics used in the construction of Chevy Silverado accessories is something we should really be considering. You don’t have to be a climate activist to care about the state of our environment, after all. Just by making informed buying decisions, you can shoulder some of the responsibility of keeping our world clean and habitable for future generations.
This is one of the many reasons we spent so much time working with the plastic resins we use to make DECKED accessories. We decided it wasn’t enough to make our products strong, resilient, and durable. We also had to make sure that our products were both easy and economical to recycle.
We succeeded so well that we found it was less expensive (and much greener) to recycle our own plastic wastes in-house than to buy new products. That’s why all of the Chevy Silverado accessories we sell (and those for all over makes) contain a great deal of recycled material already.
We know that it is important to protect our planet, and that our customers would want DECKED’s carbon footprint to be as small as possible. We are proud to source our materials from suppliers who feel the same way.

DECKED is proud to be an American company, and we manufacture all of our fine products out of our factory in Defiance, Ohio. We do all of our assembly, shipping, quality control, and warranty work there, too. Not all Chevy Silverado accessories manufacturers can say the same.
