Our Awesome New Brakes Review Pages


Brake Lines

We’re rolling out some great new pages to let you know how other customers feel about their brakes.  It’s nothing but hard-hitting honesty that leaves a hunger hole deep in your gut, pushing you to find more and more candid thoughts on our popular braking products.    Yes, that last sentence was packed full of alliterations, like an Old Country Buffet at 4 p.m.  But that doesn’t mean these pages are any less thrilling.

Get the word on pure stopping power from the folks who bought our rotors and brake lines.  We’ve also made a billet grille emblems review page and a mass air flow sensors review page with the same customer candor that any of our other review pages have.   And as usual, let us know what you think.

Truxedo B-LightTruXedo wanted to call these truck bed lights “A-Lights,” but the only celebrities who responded to the endorsement listing were Delta Burke, Rudy Ray Moore and Dave Coulier. Personally, we think that if these LED lights were to show up to the A-list Hollywood club, Voyeur, the bouncer would be so impressed by the powerful bulbs and ease of installation that he’d let them in. Not to mention, these Truxedo lights are backed by a one year warranty.

PlasmaGlow Fire & Ice LED Mud Flap LightsLike a mullet, these LED lights from PlasmaGlow attach to your mud flaps to give your truck a business-in-the-front, party-in-the-back kind of look.

One New Product And Some Love For Old Favorites


headgearI wonder: would North Korea have lost 7 : 0 to Portugal had their top striker, Kim Jong Il, not fallen ill? According to state sources, the Pyongyang Pele averages 37 goals a game, more than enough to have shifted the team’s fortunes in their favor. Oh well. As a consolation, we’ve got the digital equivalent of orange slices and Capri Sun waiting on the sidelines—a new product.



Rampage Frameless Jeep Soft TopRampage did for Jeep soft tops what children with London smiles wish their orthodontists could do for them: eliminate the headgear. These frameless tops mount to your roll cage, so there’s no clunky frame to adjust and no embarrassment at sleepovers.

Rampage Frameless Jeep Soft Top

Now, we spend a lot of time on this blog talking about the all the shiny new automotive toys we’ve added up. But, we started hearing some squawking coming from the stock room. Apparently, some of our best-selling accessories and brands are jealous about all the attention the upstart accessories have been getting. So, to stave off a mutiny, we’re giving a special shout-out to all the unsung heroes:

Seat Covers

Seat CoversWe all sit on mustard packets from time to time, but your auto’s upholstery should not have to suffer because of the office hazing we’ve been enduring for the past five years. Wait, am I the only one? Hey, Jerry! WTF?

  • Sheepskin Seat CoversIf you’ve walked through downtown Manhattan, shopped at American Apparel or read the latest issue of Vice, you know ’80s fashion is back. Nothing complements your Yaz reissues and neon sunglasses like vintage sheepskin seat covers.
  • Rampage Seat CoversJeep heads know that Rampage crafts seat covers that are tough enough to keep up with their busy rock-crawling schedules and mud-bogging appointments.

Brakes

Brakes. They’re the invaluable parts that keep you from plowing into the Benz in front of you when you’re rubber necking that Brazilian barista brewing up café con leche at her sidewalk cart.

  • Brake PadsBrake calipers without quality brake pads are like two slices of buttered Roman Meal without the bologna. Complete the sandwich.
  • Brembo BrakesThe pros know that Brembo Brakes are the bee’s knees. They come from Italy, for Mama Celeste’s sake. What more has to be said?

Car Covers

Car CoversIn a garage or out on the street, stray cats will find your warm hood and will knead biscuits with their paws and claws on your finish. Protect your investment from felines by slipping on a car cover and throwing out your catnip air freshener.

  • Outdoor Car CoversThey’re the thin grey line between your ride’s pristine finish and a sludgy slurry of bird squeeze.
  • Covercraft Car CoversThe biggest cheese in the car cover fromagerie is none other than Covercraft, who’s been crafting artisanal covers for decades.

Exhaust Systems

Exhaust, Mufflers & TipsCar go BOOM.

  • Universal MufflersGetting 50 guys to agree on universal healthcare is impossible. On the subject of universal mufflers, though, the support is unanimous.
  • Borla ExhaustWhat sets Borla apart from other exhaust builders? Besides the generations of experience under their belts, they craft every exhaust from choice stainless steel, just like those fansy-pants Japanese kitchen knives you’re still paying off from last year.

Running Boards

Running BoardsWhile they might not be as exciting as Schwarzenegger’s classic Running Man, installing running boards won’t give you nightmares about Captain Freedom and Dynamo chasing you down.

Bike Racks

Bike RacksYou believe in the Critical Mass ethos, but you also live in the ‘burbs. What’s a sympathetic 30-something scenester to do?

  • Hitch Mount Bike RacksTired of aggravating your hernia every time you hoist your Huffy into your roof bike carrier? A hitch mount bike rack eliminates the strain.
  • Thule Bike RacksJust as Joy Division sowed the post-punk seeds and Neutral Milk Hotel fine-tuned indie-rock’s roots, Thule bike racks have laid the foundation for how a proper bike rack should be built.

Tonneau Covers

Tonneau CoversLike a toupee for your truck bed, a tonneau covers up the bald spot, boosting your MPGs and your opposite-sex appeal.

  • Truxedo Tonneau CoversPink tuxes and zoot suits  have all be done before. If you want your wedding video to go viral, try draping yourself with a Truxedo tonneau. They’re the Armani of tonneau makers.

Truck Tents

Truck TentsStaring up at the stars is fine, but being bitten on your eyelid by a centipede in the middle of the night kind of ruins the camping experience. Truck tents smooth out the rough edges of roughing it.

  • SUV & Minivan TentsWhether you’re taking the family out on a camping excursion or simply need to take a little break from your family, an SUV or minivan tent is there for you and won’t ask any questions.
  • SportzNot to be confused with Bratz, Sportz builds some of the finest truck tents around. They have nothing to do with sassy plastic dolls.

No Taxman Here: Just A Pair Of New Accessories From DICE Electronics and VIAIR


Taxman

If you’re a fan of George Harrison, then yesterday must have been like Christmas. Everywhere, everyone was dusting off their Revolver albums and putting Harrison’s “Taxman” into heavy rotation in honor of our annual duty of forking over a chunk of hard-earned cash to the IRS.

Hopefully, though, you got a tidy refund. And if it’s burning a hole in your pocket, we added a couple new accessories onto the site that are worth checking out.

DICE G2 iPod & iPhone CradlesIt’s your typical Ice-T-goes-from-singing-about-dusting-cops-off-to-playing-a-cop story: the O.G. DICE Electronics G2 had a tad too much G for middle-America, but this restyled iPod cradle with diminished G-ness is just right for the amber waves of skittish shoppers. Best of all, this iPod/iPhone car cradle works perfectly with Dice Silverline Pro iPod Car Adapters and the new Dice MediaBridge.

DICE G2 iPod and iPhone Cradles

VIAIR 85P Portable Air CompressorRemember: it’s not the size of the dog in the fight; it’s the size of the fight in the dog. And this 60 psi air compressor from VIAIR packs a mean bite even though it weighs in at a mere 4.25 lbs—that’s less than a Chihuahua!

VIAIR 85P Portable Air Compressor

And if these aren’t of interest to you, here are a few timeless classics worthy of any tax rebate:

  • Trailer Hitches: Get where you’re going and bring what you need in style with a beefy trailer hitch. There are many manufacturers to choose from, but Curt Hitch has a solid reputation for superior fitment and quality that can’t be beat.
  • Tonneau Covers: Nothing beats the slicked n’ tricked look of a custom truck. Give yours that little extra by donning it with a shiny new truck bed cover from Bak tonneau.
  • Performance Chips: Just because your ride looks and sounds stock doesn’t mean it is. Give your ride a stealthy boost of power by tuning it with a Superchips, Hypertech or DiabloSport power programmer.
  • Brakes: If you want to stop faster, you gotta beef up those discs and pads. EBC rotors keep their cool under pressure, much better than those stock rotors you got.  Mate them to a set of Hawk brake pads and you’ve got a winning combination.

Anzo USA Halogen Fog Lights

What’s the difference, you ask? Well, the Edge CTS has a touch screen and the Edge CS doesn’t…that’s it.

New Brake Controllers, Tow Bars & Tool Cabinets – An AutoAnything Weekly Update


How many of you have ever driven up the Grapevine? It’s a beautiful pass, but it’s a mighty steep and mighty long stretch of road. Now, how many of you have ever seen an out-of-control truck screaming down the Grapevine with its trailer rocking dangerously side-to-side? It’s a startling sight, like waking in on your grandmother in the toilet.

Luckily, the tow-minded engineers over at CURT Mfg have devised a ton of quality trailer hitches and towing accessories to keep you in control of your load. Last night, we added a few more CURT accessories to the site. And, we added a few new garage toolboxes from Viper for good measure. Here’s the skinny:

CURT Discovery Brake Controller—Christopher Columbus may have discovered the New World, but CURT has made a Discovery of their own. It’s a timed brake controller, so it applies your trailer’s brakes at a steadily increasing rate the longer your foot’s on the brake pedal in the cab.

Curt Discovery Brake Controller

CURT Reflex Brake Controller—You brake, it brakes, we all brake with the Reflex. More advanced than the Discovery, the Reflex is an inertia brake controller, so it senses how hard you’re braking and applies an equally strong or light amount of braking strength at your trailer.

CURT Reflex Brake Controller

CURT Tow BarWith a 5000-lb rating, this tow bar can haul just about anything. Not that you should haul off with anything you can fit onto your flatbed trailer. For example, we recommend that you put baby Shamu back where you found him.

CURT Tow Bar Kit

Viper Tool Chests—When you’re done riding the snake to the lake, the ancient lake, you can think about organizing your tools inside one of these handy Viper tool storage cabinets. They’re available in 4 sizes, from the 2-drawer cabinet that fits perfectly on top of a rollaway to a full-blown 5-drawer rollaway.

Viper 26" Tool Chests

Viper Garage Cabinets—You won’t have to worry about tripping over River Phoenix in front of your Viper Garage Cabinets, unless you happen to concoct a time machine, head back to 1993, and set it up in front of the Viper Room. That’s a pretty remote possibility, though. Besides, the point of these rugged tool cabinets is to keep your garage organized and free from stuff you might trip over.
