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.

A Score of New Accessories Now Available: From Hitch Locks to Floor Mats


Abraham Lincoln Surveying the Antietam Battlefield

Lo, on the eve of Honest Abe’s birthday, 4 score minus 4 score and 1 day Ago, AutoAnything brought forth on this Website a multitude of new products, conceived in Convenience, and dedicated to the Proposition that all Vehicles deserve to be better than Stock. Here’s what we’re now serving:

Trimax Wheel Chock Lock —Like a death grip on your tire, this Trimax lock makes your car or trailer’s wheel un-rotatable. Plus, it’s got a built-in chock, so you can chuck that make-shift 2×4 you’ve been wedging under your tire.

Trimax Trailer LockBecause you want to wake up with your trailer where you left it, you need this ingenious trailer lock. It fits into your trailer’s coupler, making it impossible for goons to hitch up and drive off with your trailer.

Trimax Keyed-Alike Trailer Hitch & Coupler Lock Set —Look, janitors may have to tote around 10-pounds worth of keys, but they’re paid to bear that jangly burden. Why should you have to fumble with extra keys when only 1 key works with both the hitch lock and coupler lock in this deluxe set?

Trimax Receiver LockYou can either lock it or lose it, and the former is the smart choice. Luckily, Trimax makes a wide array of hitch locks to keep your towables secure.

From new seat covers to vintage signs to iPod car adapters, get’em while they’re hot!

  • Dice iPod Adapter – Have you been wanting to thump the tunes like you pump your shoes? Well Dice Electronics has got the hooks you need to pimp your iPod or iPhone on your stock stereo.  This is our first iPod car adapter, but we’ve got more on the way, so keep your eyes peeled.

Jeep Accessories & Mobile Electronics, Plus New Garage, Travel, Tailgating, Tire & Wheel Accessories – An AutoAnything Weekly Update


Under Construction

It’s true. Big changes don’t just come after getting your fortune read by an unplugged Zoltar Speaks machine. Case in point: AutoAnything’s Accessory Aisle section underwent some hefty construction last night, resulting in a new, improved way to shop, here’s what happened:

New Departments

  • Mobile Electronics: The high-tech home to everything from power adapters to backup sensors and cameras.
  • Tire & Wheel Accessories: Everything you’d ever need for your wheels and tires (save for aftermarket wheels or new tires…for now).
  • Winter Driving Accessories: Here’s where you’ll find snow plows, snow shades, snow chains, snow men, Snow Patrol, and the latest Macintosh operating system, Snow Leopard.

Improved Departments

  • Garage Accessories: Updated with new categories and a new piece of carpet positioned under your Dodge’s leaky oil pan.
  • Tailgating Accessories: Remember the Automotive Gear department? This is now that, only trimmed down to showcase the stuff you’d use to party in a parking lot.
  • Travel Accessories: Dead is the Driving Accessories department and its hodgepodge of automotive bric-a-brac. From its ashes rises Travel Accessories (now with approximately 43% less bric-a-brac).

Oh, and we also launched some new products for good measure:

  • Clean Tools Ultimate Car Cleaning Kit – Since that orbital power-waxer and rolling cooler/stool combo don’t quite define you as a clean-car guy, there’s this, the Ultimate Car Cleaning Kit from Clean Tools.
  • Clean Tools Ultimate Detailing Kit – If Obsessive Auto Detailing were a spectator sport, this would be akin to pro swimming’s Arena X-Glide.
  • Clean Tools Ultimate Car Wash Kit – If you wash your car like a mysophobe washes his hands, this is the kit for you.
  • Clean Tools Absorber Synthetic Chamois – You know, there always seems to be a time and place for synthetic leather. And this little guy puts more shame on  ShamWow than Vince Shlomi.
  • AlphaTherm Windshield Washer Heater – Writing your name in the snow was never this much fun.
  • Rampage Jeep Seat Covers – Rampage: it’s not just a classic arcade game or a side effect of the HGH you’ve been injecting between your toes. It’s also a company that makes stuff for your Jeep, like this new set of seat covers we launched.  Also comes with a matching steering wheel cover because, as Rampage’s demographic studies indicate, people with messy bottoms often have cruddy hands, too.
  • Smittybilt Nerf Steps – Dress your vehicle to the nines with the style and strength of these tough new steps.
  • Smittybilt Sure-Step Nerf Steps – Unlike those other slippery nerf steps, these ones give you a firm stepping point.

A slew of new Jeep items came in from Rugged Ridge:

  • Jeep Air Intake System – Power-up your Jeep’s lungs with this oxygen-sucking system.
  • Jeep Throttle Body Spacers – If your Jeep needs some space, it doesn’t mean you need to start packing your bags. Just pick up one of these.
  • HID Off-Road Lights – Because driving in the dark never works out very well. Light up your trails with the power of HID lights.
  • Jeep Exhaust Headers – Built for both extreme and Xtreme conditions, these headers take on your toughest challenges.
  • Jeep Exhaust System – Adds style and tone to the back of your Jeep with its dual-tip design and cat-back goodness.

That’s it for this weekly installment, check back later for some slacker-friday fun.

An Underground Garage Would Be Perfect for Hiding Your Exotic Cars, No?


From Honda making everybody listen to the William Tell Overture to someone wrapping their entire car in automotive foil, we’ve had a lot of strange and funny stories come buy our desks and the creativity of some peoples projects are simply amazing.  I don’t know if you can really classify this as creative or just very James Bond-ish, but whatever you want to call it, there’s no denying that it’s cool.
