How To Ungovern A Truck
All trucks come with lots of accessories, but some buyers may get carried away adding too many features. This is especially true if you are buying your first truck or want slightly less expensive wheels than top of the line models.
Trucks can become very pricey as time goes on. Luckily, most things can be undone! If you find that your new vehicle has too much junkware (or unnecessary add-ons) it is easy to take off.
There are several ways to do this. You can contact the manufacturer directly to see about getting your product removed, contacting local dealerships to see what services they offer, looking online for review photos and descriptions, and more.
In this article, we will talk about one of our favorite stealthy ways to remove unwanted equipment from your car or truck. It’s staying focused on price while also checking out sellers who have their items listed on eBay.
Write down all your rules
The second key factor in keeping your vehicle under control is knowing what rules you have for the car, and how you will enforce them if you break one. This can be done by making sure you do not have any illegal modifications or additions to the vehicle that violate the regulations.
For example, if you added some aftermarket wheels then you must know which category they fit into under the Vehicle Registration Act (VRA). For instance, alloy wheels are categorized as “tyre-faced” so they would fall under this regulation.
Making it very easy to prove why you broke the law because you modified the vehicle. By having knowledge of the VRA, you have proof that the vehicle was breaking the law before you made the modification.
Make a checklist
The first step in ungowning a truck is making sure you have all of the necessary tools. You will need an old truck that you do not use for work, as well as some plastic zip-lock bags or heavy blankets to pack up the pieces of the vehicle.
It’s also important to be aware of your surroundings while dismantling the car. If possible, take it down somewhere with easy access to supplies and help.
You should also know what kind of engine oil your current engine has so you can get matching lube for the new one. Some oils are different for each other, and buying the wrong one could cause expensive repairs!
Lastly, make sure to cross off every item on your list! Do this once everything is packed away and then go back and check if anything got left behind.
Put up a sign
The first thing you will need to do is put up a warning or disclaimer for other drivers when your truck has no gear! This could be putting up a “Ungoderned” sticker, writing down notes about how to handle an ungoaded vehicle, or even creating your own warning like some people did with their car.
The second step is to make sure there are not many cars around so that anyone can help if needed. If possible, it would also help if someone was already at a parking lot or somewhere close by where they usually park.
If all of this fails then hopefully others have tips such as calling the police, neighbors, etc. but only after trying everything else. Having more witnesses may help get you help faster.
Tell your coworkers
Letting people know what you’re going through can help them be supportive, even if they don’t agree with your decision.
Some of us feel uncomfortable asking for help because we think we should handle things on our own or that we’ll look bad if we ask for assistance.
But by sharing your plans, and hopefully having conversations about why you are making this choice, you will not only get support, but also understanding.
People who love you will try to talk you out of it, but that’s okay — remember, you made this decision, so do what you want to do!
Everyone is different when it comes to how much emotional energy they have, and for some, saying goodbye to someone they’ve worked with for years may take more than others.
This could make work impossible at times, which is definitely not ideal, but there are ways to address this.
You may need to find other jobs quickly, or at least reduce the hours you work while you cope with these changes.
Alternatively, you might consider staying in one position longer rather than finding another job right away, as long as you know what you’re looking for and can wait for it.
How to ungovern a truck depends on the person and their situation, but being aware of what options exist can help you deal with the challenge of leaving your current workplace.
Tell your boss
Sometimes, things just seem to get out of control with people under you. You work really hard for the company, so it is important that someone in management notices this and takes action.
If you are constantly being interrupted by the phone or something seems off about how an individual acts, talks, or carries themselves then tell your boss!
Get into the habit of telling your bosses when they are doing or saying something that could be considered bad behavior. Make sure to be specific and not vague.
Take down your sign when you are ready
The second most annoying thing about old, rusty trucks is having to look for their favorite truck hangout or getaway spot while they are parked.
If you have ever tried to find out where your car would like to go during its downtime, then you can probably relate to this!
It is very difficult to tell what kind of vehicle someone is unless you have done business with them or seen it before – and even if you have, it is hard to know exactly where everyone keeps their cars!
In fact, some people don’t even know themselves! This can be really frustrating because you may want to take advantage of the fun opportunities that vehicle has to offer, but now you are looking for it all day every day.
Ungoing a truck can start off easy and become harder as time goes on.
Stay calm and collected at all times
Let’s say you find yourself in a situation where your car is out of commission, there are no cars around, and it looks like someone just took their vehicle. What do you normally do? You probably pull over, try to figure out what happened, and see if you can talk them into giving back your belongings.
But with trucks, things can get ugly really fast! When vehicles are being tooled around or even raced, things usually escalate quickly. Thankfully, most people are good about letting go of the handle when they realize that person isn’t going to start harming others or themselves.
That doesn’t mean, however, that staying cool is easy. While some may think they’re acting with self-control, anger always lies just beneath the surface.
So how can you stay calm while engaging in an ungovernable truck? Here are some tips for stepping up as the bigger guy.
Try to keep your cool
Let’s say you find yourself in a situation where someone is trying to take control of your vehicle away from you. They may be chasing you, attempting to make a fast getaway or they might just want to hurt you for being too aggressive with them.
It can feel like there are no good options. But there are! The best option is usually to remain calm and collective. Don’t let anyone intimidate you – speak up, threaten them if necessary but stay focused on keeping yourself safe.
If they seem like they’re going to pull out a gun, run their car off the road or do something else potentially harmful, call the police. Hopefully an officer will arrive and handle things for you.
Keep looking around for help and see what resources are available to you. Some people don’t know how to drive so maybe you can ask some friends to come and pick you up or at least offer your assistance.
Try not to engage with the other person unless it seems inevitable that you will have to go somewhere together or leave together, but even then try to remain calm and collect. You aren’t likely to succeed in protecting yourself if you lose your temper.
