Looking to get yourself a little something this Black Friday, but not interested in fearing for your life at a local shopping center? Amazon Early Black Friday Deals are already ramping up, and truck and SUV owners are in for some massive deals.

From camping and overlanding 4×4 gear to towing accessories and truck bed attachments, the following dozen Amazon picks are sure to impress — and we hope they’ll be a part of any Amazon Black Friday deals. Many of these we use routinely (if not daily) on our own vehicles, and have received the PUTT stamp of approval. So, let’s get shopping, shall we?

1. SEAAES 35-inch extendable ice scraper and snow brush

Is your ice scraper/snow brush entirely too wimpy? Does clearing winter’s wrath from your rig cause you to strain and swear in frustration? Then it might be time for an extendable snow brush, and after years of testing, we’ve discovered the SEAAES 35-inch extendable ice scraper and snow brush is easily the best of the bunch. Here are a few reasons why you’ll want to get your own on Amazon as well…
