Ho, Ho, Ho-ly Cannoli…Only Two Weeks Until Christmas!


The holiday shopping season is heating up like a hung-over mall Santa stuffed in a red polyester suit. If you’re not in the mood to wade through endless lines, battle blockaded parking lots, or endure the stench of commerce, head to AutoAnything instead. Our digital shelves are always stocked with gifts your brood will appreciate, including these nine new accessories:

KC HiLites Wiring Harness—Unless you can convince your Dalmatian mice to hook their jogging wheels up to your KC HiLites, you’ll need this deluxe wiring harness to feed power to your auxiliaries.

PortablePET Twistep Dog Hitch Step—Calm down, people. No complicated footwork need be learned to use the Twistep hitch-mounted dog ramp from PortablePET. It simply swings away from your bumper, giving your pooch a boost up—not embarrassing you like that Crip Walk incident.

Putco Nova LED Bulbs—With 3x the candlepower of the lesser Putco 360 LED Lights, these suckers are almost as bright as the lights you saw right before those aliens slurped you into their intergalactic cruiser for a probing.

Griots Garage Exterior Car Care Kit—9 out of 10 ADHDers standing next to a sudsy bucket agree: these complete detailing kits from Griots Garage are totally packed with everything you need to…is that a cat? Hey, cat. Yeah, you there. Scat. Tsss tsss tsss. Wait, what were you asking again?

Innovate Motorsports OT-2If an OT-2 OBD-II Scanner & WiFi Interface from Innovate Motorsports makes sense to you, it’s time to put down the Phillip K. Dick novels.

GarageMate UtiliStepYour insurance company will likely drop your coverage if you fall off your swivel chair one more time, so step up on this sturdy step from GarageMate the next time you’re rooting around in your rafters for that box of model rocket gear.

GarageMate ShopShelfUnlike your IKEA Nybygge bookshelf, these GarageMate products come pre-assembled—and with enough backbone to shoulder more than just a jar of lingonberry jam.

GarageMate ShopHangerYou have a hanger for your coats, a hanger for your ties, and even a hanger for your Cessna. Why not a hanger for your helmets and hoses? These garage accessories fit the bill.

GarageMate SupplyBinNo one can nag about your obsessive need to collect bungee cords from the side of the road if you stuff them into this wall-mounted garage organizer instead of laying them out on the kitchen table like a proud cat displaying her prey.

Simoniz Auto Detailing Products & Chrome Car Antennas – An AutoAnything Weekly Update


Well, another week has passed. Here in California, the weather’s getting cooler and at 64 degrees Fahrenheit, the ocean is downright frigid! It makes it tough to surf, and somewhat chilly for scuba diving.  But Colorado’s seen a huge snowstorm, leaving several feet of fresh powder behind.  I’m sure a bunch of my friends are out at Vail cutting first tracks and demolishing pints… yes, I’m jealous.

But I can already smell the turkey that mom’s cooking in the oven, so that makes everything better…

Thanksgiving Turkey with all the Trimmings

You know what I also smell?  New product.

Simoniz Products – Simon says Simoniz all you need to make your car shine like new.  Even works great on rusted out 1982 Toyota Tercel’s… really, it does.

Chrome Car Antennas – Because some people just want a shinier place to put their Jack-in-the-Box Antenna Balls.
We also revamped some of our old shopping guides with a better layout, updated information and more detailed descriptions. So whether you’re trying to find the best detailing products, pick out some aftermarket lights, or you need help choosing the right car bra for your ride (hint: just like junior high, it’s probably the push-up bra), we’ve got you covered.
That’s it for now, check back later for your Friday Afternoon 5 O’Clock Countdown post.

Car Vacuums, Tonneau Covers & Light Bars – An AutoAnything Weekly Update


It only comes ‘round once a year, and we’ve all been anxiously awaiting its delivery. Finally, it’s September 4th—national Newspaper Carrier Day! Hey, Barney Flaherty, this morning we’re chucking something onto your lawn: a couple of soggy new products.

Smittybilt Light Bar

Smittybilt Street Light Bar

It looks a little like this with lights: 0000

It looks a little like this without lights: ____

Pretty boss.

Metro 500 Car Vac

Metropolitan 500 Hand Vacuum

We could make a cheap joke about how these vacuums suck, or an underhanded crack about Metro-sexuals—but we won’t.

Undercover SE Tonneau

Undercover SE Tonneau Cover

A more stylish version of the original UnderCover Tonneau Cover, the SE is the James Bond to the original’s Colonel Samuel Flagg.

But wait, there’s more…not only did we get these three new products up, but we have also loaded a brand new dash covers and dash kits department! It the new dash covers department, you can find plush carpet dash covers, swanky suede dash covers, and velvety velour dashboard covers.

In the new dash kits department, we choose to do a similar breakdown, so know you can easily sort through them by material type: carbon fiber dash kits, molded dash kits and wood dash kits.  Pretty slick, huh?  If you want to know more about dash covers and trim, we updated our dash covers shopping guide (and dash kits shopping guide) to help guide you in making the right decision.

New Templates + Car Massagers, Heated Car Blankets, Lap Desks & More – An AutoAnything Weekly Update


After an hour long surf session, a brief swim with some dolphins and a little breakfast, I made it to work and checked my inbox.  Sure enough, we had released a bunch of new stuff on our site…I love the smell of new product in the morning!

And not only do we have all this new product for you, but we also did a little redesign on the site.  Here’s a link to our seat covers department; if you click it, there’s a good chance you’ll see the  new template.  If you see the same old site, dump your cookies and refresh the page.  If that still doesn’t work, check out the snap shot below.  There are a few big changes and a lot of subtle ones, but overall we think the (re)design is a big improvement.  Hover your mouse over one of the products and click the “Quick Look” button for a nifty preview of the product.

Our category pages also went under the knife and they share a similar look and feel to the departments, but now have some filtering options to help you find what you’re looking for.  For example, take a look the left navigation on our neoprene seat covers page.
