Great Googly Moogly: 1 New Shock & 1 Zappa Tribute


August 9th may be Baltimore’s official Frank Zappa Day, but AutoAnything’s holding a repeat celebration by launching a product in honor of his seminal track, Don’t Eat The Yellow Snow. With a vigorous circular motion hitherto unknown to the people of this office, we brought forth a deluxe new suspension system accessory that’s sure to give your sled the stability it needs to watch out where the huskies go.

KONI Sport Yellow Shocks—First there was the novel, Yellow River, by I.P. Freely. Now come the shocks, Yellow Shocks, by KONI. These suckers are the best street shocks KONI has to offer—they come custom damped and valved for your ride, they’re fully adjustable at each wheel, and they’re perfect when paired with lowering kits and sway bars.

And if you want to strut these shocks in style, head on over to Real Vicious Truck Beds, they’ve got some good looking whips that you can draw style cue’s from.

Just Say No To Chillaxin’, But Yes To New Auto Accessories


Willy Wonka

Like a coveted golden ticket hidden within the wrapper of a Wonka Bar, this week’s new product announcement promises a lifetime of wild wonder and rotted teeth. Read up, rinse and spit.

KONI RAID Red ShocksHuffing a sock full of Raid bug spray could leave you feeling like a six-legged character from a Kafka short story. But, equipping your street demon with these boss shocks from KONI will make you feel like Viggo Mortensen’s trusty mustang, Hidalgo, racing across Arabia in the ’04 blockbuster Hidalgo, a movie about a horse named Hidalgo. These suckers are perfect for serious off-road racing, Baja 500-style.

KONI Heavy Track Red ShocksNeil Diamond said it best (yes, better than The Hollies, you audio-snobs): “He ain’t heavy, he’s my shock absorber.” If the welfare of your suspension system is of your concern, these Koni shocks deliver the goods your rugged off-roader demands…they’re just a notch down from the race-ready RAID Red Shocks.

Licensed Logo Hitch Covers by PilotGo down the right alley in Hong Kong or Los Angeles’s Garment District, and you could find an unlicensed version of these hitch covers by Pilot Automotive (not to mention knock-off Big Johnson shirts). But, bypassing licensing fees means you’d be stealing bread out of the hungry mouths of mammoth corporations, whose coffers are not yet lined with enough gold-plated diamonds.

New Auto Accessories for a Nearly New Season


Springtime

Spring has nearly sprung, but we’re growing impatient. So in an attempt to coax our favorite season out of its shell, we added a few new products. These are for you, Gaia—wake up!

ORV Jeep Shocks—The only thing I’m shocked about is that you’re still off-roading without these deluxe shocks. These bad boys are charged with 150psi of pressurized nitrogen gas. You’d have to eat about a half-pound of dried prunes to generate that kind of gas charge.

ORV_Jeep_Shocks

ORV Jeep Steering Stabilizers—Couldn’t your Jeep use a little more support? ORV Jeep is here with quality steering components to carry you through your times of trial and suffering—it’s the one set of footprints in the sand for your chassis.

ORV Jeep Lift Kits—Your Jeep could use a pick-me-up, too. But it needs something a little stronger than a slug of Monster to conquer the badlands. Beef it up with an expertly engineered suspension lift kit.

ORV Jeep Drop Pitman Arms—Working like a marriage counselor, the drop pitman arm bridges the divide between your suspension and steering system.

Putco Halogen Headlight BulbsWith an assortment of 5 brilliant colors, these headlight bulbs let you cast Skittle’s flavored light onto the streets.

7 Fresh Automotive Accessories Available Now


Today’s a special day that only comes once every 4 years—it’s the closing ceremonies of yet another Winter Olympics. Finally, NBC will get back to airing stuff worth airing, and your neighbor will stop droning on and on about the intricacies of the Nordic combined and get back to droning on and on about The DHARMA Initiative.

To celebrate, we added some new product to the site. Check it out:

Pewag Cable Tire ChainsTrust us—bedazzling your tires with rhinestones is not going to give you all-weather traction like these snow chains. Conversely, strewing Pewag chain links across the back of your Canadian tuxedo is not going to score you any girl’s digits at the next flapjack social.

Pewag V-Trac Cable Tire Chains—Say goodbye to skid marks. V-Trac tire chains keep your sled fleet footed when Old Man Winter dumps his powdery load on your neck of the woods. Plus, these Pewag Glacier chains have a built-in rubber tensioner that keeps them snug against your tires.

Anzo USA LED Truck Bed Lights—Cargo doesn’t like to admit it, but it’s scared of the dark. Cut it some slack already. These universal truck bed lights from Anzo USA are like high-powered nightlights for your truck’s bed.

Anzo USA Stealth Vision LED Fog Lights—Stealth vision: the next best thing to x-ray vision (and way more reliable than those x-ray specs you bought from the back of your Boy’s Life). In fact, these LED fog lights are so powerful, you might be able to convert them into grow lights.

Anzo USA Rugged Vision LED Off Road Lights—If your spouse has a hard time waking up in the morning, shine one of these Anzo off road lights in his/her face…that ought to do the trick.

Rancho My Ride Wireless Controller—Unlike social networking giant MyFace, the Rancho MyRide does something useful. This wireless shock controller gives you the ability to make on-the-fly adjustments to the stiffness of your Rancho shocks; it doesn’t provide a platform for self-absorbed chatter masquerading as communication.

Apple iPad

Yes, yes. Everyone’s been busy this week checking out Apple’s latest fruit, the iPad. Strangely enough, most people are talking less about its technological advances and more about its hygienic double entendre name.

Lloyd Velourtex Floor Mats—Not only are these the most affordable custom-made carpet floor mats in Lloyd’s lineup, they’re also made of genuine Velour pelts harvested from the finest out-and-about pajama suits in Texas.

New Air Suspension, Chrome Trim & Cargo Bags Available Now at AutoAnything


Rainstorm

It might not be fleet week in San Diego, but it’s been raining men since Monday. Well, not literally men, but droplets of water the size of a pre-diabetic 5th-grader. It’s as though the heavens have been swilling Natural Ice for months and picked this week to see a man about a horse.

In other words, it’s been wet. Damn wet. But AutoAnything isn’t deterred by a deluge. Instead, we went postal. Not that kind of postal—we went postal in the “neither rain, nor sleet, nor hail shall stop us from deliver junk mail” sense. Instead of coupons and credit card applications, we’re delivering 5 new products from 3 deluxe brands: Air Zenith, Dee Zee and Heininger.

Air Zenith Air Struts—Tyra Banks may think she knows the catwalk, but these new Air Zenith Air Struts can teach her a thing or two about strutting. The ideal alternative to traditional hydraulics, these air suspension kits are custom engineered for a perfect fit on your ride and deliver 12-way adjustable dampening.

Air Zenith Air Struts

Air Zenith Dual OB2 Air Compressor Kit—Air struts by themselves are pretty boss, but you need a way to control them. That’s where the Air Zenith Dual-OB2 Air Compressor Kit comes in handy. Available in either a basic or pro kit, it comes with everything you need to put some bounce in your air suspension: air compressors & air tanks & all the connectors.

Dee Zee U-Cut Chrome Pilar Post Trim

Heininger SofTop Roof Top Cargo BagAlles klar, Herr Heininger? This is the same roof cargo bag that Austrian pop-rocker Falco used to carry his gear from gig to gig. With 15 cubic ft of storage space, this roomy roof bag has enough space to stuff a Kommissar and the bones of Amadeus.
