Upgrades and accessories to light up the dark winter nights, boost safety and help your truck really stand out from the crowd.

With the winter nights still well and truly drawn in, good vehicle lighting is a must. But rather than simply bring a boost in safety, some creative use of additional lamps can add a lot of character to a commercial vehicle and turn heads just as effectively as a blinged-up livery or airbrushed paintjob.

From working lights, side lights, position lights and spot lights, there are some cracking new models on the market for 2020. Here’s our pick of the latest releases – along with some well-established favourites – that will provide long operating hours and look the business on any working truck.
