    Hi so ever since I got my truck I’ve always had an air fresher to obviously keep it smelling good inside. For now, I use the little trees ones that hangs from the mirror. I’m coming up on my last one right now and saw these:

    Little Trees CTK-52231-24 Black Ice Vent Wrap Air Freshener, 16 Pack https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B01H7D7BH2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_8YEHQ0W4QQPDZGF7WXTY

    The little trees “vent wraps” they don’t seem to look to fit the first gens vents. Does anyone know if these would fit them? I would buy them but don’t want to go through the hassle to return such a little thing. Thanks.

    Stick with the trees...those vent things suck!


    Vanilaroma and Black ice are a good combo or switch around
    And the cherry cups found at Dollar Tree offer some enticing smells occasionally as well.

    Funny thing about Air Freshers is you get used to it and no longer can smell the scent so keep adding more .

    Some one else gets in eyes watering and nose running I gave up on them years ago .

    I run an ozone machine in mine overnight sometimes a day a week. Keeps things smelling freaky fresh. I also like the "new car smell" tree.

    I use the Drift scent-of-the-month air fresheners in my truck. I also use Vanillaroma in my patrol car because vanilla is a calming scent. I say stick with the trees, but replace them out, don't just add to the stack or you'll get suspicious looks from people like me. :rofl:

    I've ridden in cars with the vent ones, and I hate them. Sometimes (most times, lol) I just want regular unscented air blowing on my face.

    I keep a small spray bottle of my favorite fragrance nearby. Every week or so spritz/spray a few pumps under seat. In glove box, in vent etc. Smells like a french whorehouse ,at $50 or so, a 3.4 oz bottle it ain't cheap. DRAKKAR NOIR it says on the label. Girl with the long eyelashes and heavy make-up behind the cosmetics counter says its "no longer available" . That means I'm on my last bottle. Guess I'll have to switch. Hi Karate ?? Brute ?? Old English ?? Lucky Tiger ? It'll probably be "AXE". Drives the women crazy, so it says on the bottle. The girl at the Micky D's drive through window ,watch out, next time I roll down the window to pay and you catch a whiff of the vapor trails ... well I'll be speeding off, as I want nothing to do with her, she's 2-bagger material. You do know what a 2-bagger is right ??

    Go to Bath & Body Works (I know it’s lame) and buy a small can of concentrated room freshener. Spray into the vents and your carpet, then turn your AC on full blast. Thank me later.

    Spray some Fabreez into your cars air intake. Lysol disinfects but doesn’t have any odor killing enyyemes.

    Maybe it does now...if not...lol.

    Lysol not being like Fabeze with it’s odor killing enzymes. What a dinosaur brand Lysol is.

    I personally don't care for any of those air fresheners, they all give me a headache. I will use a spray of Ozium now and again to keep it fresh and I change out the cabin filter regularly.

    Hum, I've had dozens of vehicles over the years and never had to put an air freshener in any of them.
