11 New Rounds in the AutoAnything Glock


Arigato, otearai

On a side note, the phone fairy stopped by AutoAnything’s office last night and left us all Avaya treats. What I can’t get over, though, is how similar the ringer sounds to the jingle the toilets at Tokyo’s Narita Airport play after you’ve made an honorable deposit. Skeevey.

Oh yeah, we also added some new accessories to our digital shelves. Dig these:

Superwinch S3000 WinchWhen not winching crime, Superwinch dons the mild-mannered affect of a hack journalist.

Superwinch S4000 WinchThis Superwinch winch is stronger than the S3000, but also more sensitive to pictures of starving children…a winch that’s not afraid to cry.

Superwinch LP8500 WinchWith 8,500 lbs of line pull, the only thing this 8000 lb winch can’t do is replace your beloved manga body pillow, Kumiko.

Superwinch EP 9.0 WinchThis Superwinch winch boasts 9,000 lbs of line pull, perfect for recovering from a mud hole, but you’ll need a patient shrink to recover from the news that Nazareth isn’t including your city on their 2010 Love Still Hurts tour.

Superwinch EPi 9.0 WinchThe EP 9.0 winch has 100′ of wire rope. The EPi 9.0 has 125′. Do the math—you can go 25% more bananas on your next Jeep jamboree with these winches.

Superwinch EP 12.5 Winch—The perfect winch for rescuing your rig or pulling out the load-bearing supports on that granny flat your neighbor built too close to your property line. Damn you, McGillicuddy!

Superwinch EP 16.5 Winch—For perspective, this brawny winch has enough backbone to reel in almost 23 pairs of McGwire twins simultaneously.

Superwinch S5000 Winch—Compared to its bigger brethren, this winch may seem like a Webster among Reruns, but it kicks like Mister Ed.

Kurgo Combo PackageKurgo Dog On the Go survival kit contents check. In it you’ll find: one bright orange and black Quantum Leash, one Tru-Fit Smart Harness with padded chest plate, one nylon webbed Wander Collar…shoot, a fella’ could have a pretty good weekend in Dallas with all that stuff.

Kurgo Co-Pilot Dog Seat CoverDog may be your co-pilot, but it’s not going to stop her frothy lather of slobber from raining down all over your seat. These seat covers for dogs from Kurgo can help protect you from resenting your dog vs. cat decision.

Softride Ski Rack Attachment—It converts your Softride bike rack into a ski & snowboard rack when you want to convince your coworkers that you do more on the weekends than simply curl up fetal and weep.

New Winter Driving Products – AutoAnything Weekly Product Review


Turkey day is right around the corner, which means that fall is now behind us and we are on the cusp of the winter season. Much like that childhood story of the Squirrel and the Grasshopper, we’ve been working hard in preparation for the cold winter months ahead of us. We’ve got three new seat covers from Cal Trend to help keep your buns warm and your style fresh. Available in three styles;

In our Driving Accessories department, you can find our new line of Thule snow chains. We’ve got five chain-linked styles to help you get through whatever the winter weather throws at you.

  • Thule CB-12 tire chains are a standard, economical tire chain that will safely get you from point A to point B without breaking your piggy bank in the process.
  • Thule CS-10 tire chains are easy to slip on any tire and feature a self-tightening system to keep them hugging your wheels. When you’re ready to take them off, just hit the quick release button and prepare to stow.
  • Thule K-Summit tire chains are the creme de la creme of tire chains. Using a special lug nut mounted ratcheting system, these chains require no rear wheel clearance and feature tightening springs that eliminate wheel-slap and maximize grip.
  • Thule XB-16 tire chains are made from heavy duty chain links to claw through even the thickest road ice. Color coded assembly points make for easy installation in bleak weather conditions.
  • Thule XG-12 tire chains are specially made for heavier vehicles, constructed of hardened steel and designed to give extra grip when you need it most.

With these snow chains, you’ll be prepared to go out in any conditions, whether you’re going to the grocery store or hitting the slopes. Now that you’ve got the ability to drive in snowy weather, you should also be able to bring all your gear along too, which is why we added another ski rack, bike rack and a cargo roof bag line that will keep your necessities dry in rain, sleet or snow.

  • The Thule SnowCat ski and snowboard rack can latch onto your factory roof rails and then secure up to 6 pairs of skis or 4 snowboards for your mogul/shredding pleasure.
  • The Yakima Beddy Jo truck bed bike rack secures two bikes safely in the bed of your truck, keeping them from getting scratched up, dinged or stolen.
  • The Yakima GetOut roof cargo bag offers up to 13 cubic feet of additional cargo space and provides some weatherproofing, perfect for traveling through mild weather conditions.
  • The Yakima GetOut Pro roof cargo bag has all the same great features as the original GetOut, but has durable weatherproof seams and a bug-splatter-friendly finish.
  • The Yakima FarOut roof cargo bag is a campers dream. This triple-duty cargo bag can be strapped to your roof, used as a backpack or a hanging closest for maximum versatility. Offering 7 cubic feet of storage space, the FarOut cargo bag gives you the most functionality and portability for the buck.

If you’re rolling around in the snow, you should do it with some style. We added some more chrome accessories and another grille guard too:

And if you’re looking for more power, we got you covered there too. Remember last week when we added BBK? Well we got two more kick ass BBK performance products and a few from DiabloSport too.

  • BBK cold air intake systems net you an additional 7 to 21 horsepower by feeding your engine cooler air in bigger quantities than your stock air intake would allow.
  • A BBK intake manifold will let your engine produce up to 24 more horses by flowing even more air directly into your cylinders. Made from premium aluminum, this intake manifold saves weight, adds power and looks great.
  • The DiabloSport Mafia Mass Air Flow tuner will let you maximize horsepower gains from the modifications you make to your intake system, netting you maximum bang for the buck.
  • The DiabloSport PC Interface USB cable lets you hookup your DiabloSport Predator tuner to your PC so you can get the latest tunes and the most power from your engine.

AutoAnything Weekly Product Review: Yakima Ski Racks!


Although we haven’t even gotten past Labor Day yet, we here at AutoAnything are bringing in the gear that you’re gonna want when winter rolls through. Thats why we have just picked up 4 new Yakima ski racks that will get you and your gear where you need to go in style! The new models are the FatCat, the FreshSesh, the Big PowerHound, and the HitchSki.

The can all carry 6 pairs of skis or 4 snowboards, they all have big lock/release buttons so you don’t have to take your gloves off, and the roof mounted racks all have integrated binding lifts so you don’t scratch your roof up. So what’s the difference you ask? Here’s a quick break down:

The Yakima FreshSesh ski rack is Yakima’s traditional style ski rack. It’s easy to use, carries lots of equipment, and even comes with two ultra-cool decals to give you some added style on your way to the mountain.

The Big Powderhound is Yakima’s standard rack, but blown up by 10-15% to accommodate equipment that’s a little larger than normal.

The Yakima FatCat 6 is extra wide so you can carry all your powder-day equipment with ease. It also has a sleek, lower profile design than most other ski and snowboard racks, so it should help conserve those MPG’s. This rack got the “Gear of the Year” award from Men’s Journal magazine, so you know its high quality!

The HitchSki doesn’t mount on the roof, but instead to a trailer hitch giving you easy ground-level access to your gear. And since it mounts behind your vehicle, you won’t lose any precious MPG’s since you don’t gain any extra aerodynamic drag.

Here’s a few photos to help you choose what’s right for you.
