Remember the good old days when you could talk, text and drive all without The Man sticking his nose up your liberty? Plowing into the backs of buses while chewing the cud used to be our inalienable right. But that right to talk and maim has eroded, and you’ll need a hands free car kit to legally spread rumors about your coworkers in the Dairy Queen drive-thru. Luckily, we added up the king daddy of hands-free kits onto our site, along with a few extra automotive goodies to go along with it. Dig it:
Vizualogic BLU Logic Bluetooth Hands Free Car Kit—Here’s an idea. The next time a cop pulls you over for talking and driving, use the Ike defense and tell him, “Listen now Mr. Kansas law dog—law don’t go around here. Savvy?” Then, when you’re out of the joint and had your cudgeled-teeth replaced, install one of these hands free kits from Vizualogic.
Sherwood Factory Match Dash Kits—Warning: Heidi Montag is proof that plastic surgery is an addiction. Once your interior gets this Sherwood Innovations dash kit transplant, it may start thinking about a bumper augmentation or a grille job.
Ranch Sportwrap Tonneau Cover—Not to be mistaken for a Ranch Chicken Wrap, this hard tonneau cover from Ranch Fiberglass adds delicious looks to your rig’s rear end. Custom shaped from premium fiberglass, it sports a flat deck that wraps over the edges of your box rails for a seamless fit.
Ranch Legacy Tonneau Cover—It used to be that if someone wanted their accessory to sound cool and rugged, they’d start its name with a capital X. Ranch Fiberglass is rocking the boat by swapping out the X with the word “legacy.” We’ll let you decide whether this contoured, custom-sculpted tonneau cover lives up to its namesake.

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 Street Light Bar
It looks a little like this with lights: 0000
It looks a little like this without lights: ____
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 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.

A German BMW owner over at e90Post.com got tired of how bland his black 335i was. Rather than taking it to an auto body shop for an expensive repaint, he decided to use a technique that the German military employs when camouflaging it’s heavy equipment: it’s called “foiling” and it involves carefully applying a 3M adhesive tape to the surface of the vehicle. The tape is thick enough to protect the paint from getting light knick’s and scratches, but it “is highly recommended that it be removed after 3-4 years”. Why? The post at e90Post.com doesn’t really say, but I’d venture to guess that the tape degrades after that and can be difficult to completely remove, OR it’ll bond to the surface and can then never be removed. Either way, the shiny tape dramatically changes the look of the vehicle and really opens up the doors to exterior customization! Check out the picks below during the foiling process!

Do you want to customize your ride, but don’t want to go to the trouble of foiling your whole car? Consider looking at some car floor mats, an aftermarket backup camera system or even wood dash kits.
