Missed us? Sorry. Someone forwarded us over a link to the My Brother, My Brother and Me podcast, and we’ve been incapacitated with a serious case of the funny bones. And, between the peals of laughter, we’ve been trying to come up with the perfect question to ask these modern-era advice dispensers.
So, it goes without saying that the workflow has gone from the raging river of a frat boy with 80 ounces of Natty Ice in his gut to the sad trickle of an aging insurance adjuster with an engorged prostate. For the sake of appeasing the suits, though, we did bust out these two new products. Check it:
Edge Attitude CT/CTS Upgrade Kit—In the old days, an attitude upgrade came from dad’s swift backhand. These days, it’s done with fancy electronics found inside of highfalutin performance chips. Since all electronics eventually become obsolete, Edge Performance Chips created a special upgrade kit that lets you swap out your old-school Edge Juice with the new-school CS (color screen) or CTS (color touch screen). Here are the new performance chips:
Truck Pal Tailgate Ladder—There’s a lady who’s sure all that glitters is gold / And she’s buy-ai-ing a Westin tailgate ladder to heaven. If ever there was a truck bed accessory that inspired generations of teens to suck face behind the school bleachers, it’s this tailgate accessory from Westin. ZoSo!
P.S. We’ve been working on putting together a gaggle of install videos, showing you just how easy it is to bolt raw power onto your ride. Whiiiiiiiieeeeeeee, Whaaaaaaawwwwwwww, Waaaaaaaaaaaaa. That’s a little guitar solo that plays in our head every time we think of automotive horsepower. Squeeeeeeeeeeee, Squaaaaaaaaaaaaa, Doooooooooowaaaaaaaaa. So, check out this trick AutoAnything Airaid Throttle Body Spacer install video, and see what kind of soundtrack your mind comes up with.

Quick: what’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “Austin.” Stone Cold, right? Maybe SXSW? How about deep discounts on deluxe automotive accessories?
Did that last one just blow your mind? Well, scoop up all those little bits of gray matter, squish ’em back into your skull through your nasal passages, and hold on because we’re about to drop it like the Enola Gay: the Austin Community College District is hosting a special AutoAnything discount of $10 off order of $99. Check out their site to get your hands on these exclusive AutoAnything coupons, and don’t forget to do your homework.
Lets face it; there are many choices in this world and sometimes they aren’t always easy to make. But fortunately, there are a few resources at hand to simplify our decisions so we can get on with our lives. We’re working on a few things to make shopping for auto accessories easier, but I thought this might be a good time to revisit an old classic; customer reviews. So lets look at a few fan favorites from our floor mats department.
Weathertech floor mats are a tried and true design made from a premium rubber compound. We have 1302 reviews, scoring a solid 4.75 / 5 stars for appearance, ease of installation, price, value and quality.
Weathertech Extreme Duty floor mats are a more rugged version of the OG mats. Made from harder plastic with taller side walls, these rubber mats will do a fine job of controlling spills. And out of 1985 reviews, these mats score an average of 4.25 stars.
Husky Liners are bringing in big numbers in the review arena; you can read 5652 reviews on our site, all with an average rating of 4.87 / 5. An extra-tall side wall and bulletproof plastic rubber make these liners perfect for any workhorse vehicle.
Husky Weatherbeater floor mats offer a more refined look than their liners, but still boast the same solid construction and custom fit. After 526 customer reviews, we can see they also score an average of 4.87 / 5 stars.
Clearly all of them are winners, but only you can decide which set of car mats has the right style, fit and price for you.

Sit yourself down, Glen Campbell. You won’t find a load of compromising on the road to AutoAnything’s horizon, but you will find a star-spangled rodeo of rebates and special sales. Giddy up on it:
Right now, INNO (famed maker of roof rack gear, cargo boxes and hitch mount bike racks) is offering a duet of deals. First, all of their roof cargo boxes are $50 off. The savings are instant, so there’s no monkeying around with mail-in rebates—the price you see now is $50 less than what it was. Plus, they’re offering 10% off on all INNO Aero Light hitch mount bike racks. But, you have to act, like, now because this deal’s done on August 20, 2010.
Vizualogic has done so much for road-tripping families already, what with their high-quality car monitors & DVD players giving everyone a reprieve from making nice with the chit-chat. But, they’ve going above and beyond the call of duty with their special promotion: a free all-in-one video game system when you purchase a Vizualogic Advantage headrest monitor or a Quantum overhead monitor. The thing is packed with 50 games (probably 8-bit arcade classics), so you’re sure to find something that’ll take your kids’ minds off asking you stuff. Act now, though, because this deal’s dead on August 31, 2010.
Though not quite as popular as a NYC dirty water tube steak, Westin tubular products are probably the most admired and most muscular tube bars out there (excluding San Diego’s own Brass Rail). So, when Westin announced their “get a little green back” rebate of $10 to $25 off select nerf bars and running boards, it’s like being told your grandmother’s going to buy you your first post-college suit and she’s not insisting on the pants being pleated. Win-win. For this deal, you’ve got a little time to procrastinate—it doesn’t end until 9/30/2010.
We’ve always got some deluxe deals a-brewing over at AutoAnything.com. So keep an eye open for the latest news here.
Today’s new product announcement goes out to Justin Bieber. Tiger, you put a beat in our normally bleak, protestant work ethic.
Bestop PowerBoards—If machines had consciousness, I bet every time these shockingly high-tech auto-retracting running boards from Bestop tuck up against your rocker panels that they think to themselves, “I’d step on me” while Q Lazzarus’s Goodbye Horses plays through their mechanized and weatherproofed brain.
Bonus—There’s a $100 rebate for these Bestop running boards, but you only have until 10/31/2010 to save. So act with moderate haste.
Bestop TrekStep—A pickup without a retractable, rear-mounted truck step that works when your tailgate is open is like a key party without high balls and Herb Alpert records—the resulting knee aches, back pains and self-recrimination are rude awakenings, reminding you that you’re not 34 anymore (and it’s not 1974 anymore, either). Hey, pops. Act your age with a Bestop tailgate step.
CalTrend Tweed Seat Covers—King Edward VII’s favourite fabric was tweed, and who are we to question the most dashing constitutional monarch in history? Besides, were we to speak out against his taste in canvas seat covers, especially the finely tailored seat covers made by Cal Trend, he’d repress us lowly peasants and demonstrate the violence inherent in the system.
PRODUCT UPDATE: TruXedo Lo Pro QT Harley-Davidson Soft Roll Up Tonneau Cover—Good news from the Lo Pro QT Harley-Davidson Tonneau front: TruXedo has redesigned these soft roll up tonneau covers with a more tastefully-sized, embossed bar and shield logo. They’re still the same tonneau covers that hog heads have known and loved for years, only a lot easier on the eyes.
