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.

Top Holiday Shopping Ideas


It’s that time of the year again.  The holidays have arrived and that means travel, family, friends and gifts.  Yes, time to empty your bank account and top off your credit card while dealing with the throngs of shoppers, foaming at the mouth searching desperately for the best deal.  Sounds awful, right?  I’ll tell you a secret, there’s this thing, it’s called the internet.  Using it will save you money, time and your precious sanity.  Here at AutoAnything, we have your best interests in mind and that’s why we’ve pulled out all the stops this holiday season.  We’ve put our best products on sale and made them easy for you to find.

Do you need to give a gift that packs a leonine roar?  Snag a Magnaflow exhaust system, one of the most trusted names in aftermarket performance accessories.  After giving this gift and witnessing its unequivocal power, you’ll be installing one on your vehicle before the New Year.


And if you’re looking for exhaust components, our exhaust headers are ready to ship—from the best manufacturers, including Magnaflow, Borla and Flowmaster—straight to your door, with a more dependable delivery date than Jolly ‘Ol Saint Nick.  They’re built to last, and designed specifically to increase your vehicle’s power and performance.  How many gifts boast that much potential?  Not many, that’s for sure.

Not all power rests in exhaust components. Performance chips, specifically Bully Dog Chips, install within minutes and add an extra punch to performance, horsepower and torque.  Adding one of these to any ride will make it like driving a brand new vehicle.

Beside power, everyone needs a stable and comfortable ride.  A pair of KONI shocks will ensure smooth driving no matter the terrain.  These adjustable shocks make it a breeze to shift from casual country driving to high profile racing and everything in-between.


Stop, you almost forgot about brake pads.  No way you can stop on a dime with your basic factory braking system.  With performance brake pads from Hawk, Posi or EBC, you’ll have no issues this winter season when the roads transmorph into sheets of ice.

A hard tonneau cover is the ideal gift for any truck-driving gear head in your life.  Not only does it protect cargo, but it increases gas mileage.  With this economy, every penny counts, so give the gift that keeps on giving month after month.

No matter what part of the country you live in, whether it’s upstate New York, the cold prairie of Kansas or the sunny streets of SoCal, all weather floor mats are a must have.  Easy to clean, affordable and made for every make and model, these mats keep your interior clean and the grit of the outside world off your floor boards.


Another dirt deterrent are Garage floor tiles.  They keep oil stains (you should get that checked out), mud and other muck off your garage floor.  Like all weather floor mats, garage floor tiles are easy to clean and a snap to install.


If you’re looking for something easy, like a gift for White Elephant, a specialty license plate frame is your best bet.  It’s affordable, personable and great way to show your vehicle loyalty.

For great deals on these products and more, come over to AutoAnything.com.  We have the answer to all your holiday shopping questions and needs.

Have you been paying attention to your advent calendar? There are only 7 more crappy pieces of chocolate left, and you know what that means. You’ve got to get cracking on your gift-buying. Your cousin, Jedidiah, in Provo is expecting you to make up for last year’s thoughtless (and mildly blasphemous) gift: a beard trimmer. Not sure what to get?

Du-Ha Storage Cases

Du Ha StoragePerfect for the person on the go, Du Ha underseat storage cases are ideal for holding everything from road flares to rifles. Depending on the make of your truck, DuHa cases may also be offered as a “behind the seat” storage bin.

Trick or Treat: New Bumpers & License Plate Frames – An Auto Anything Halloween Update


Happy-Halloween

I know it’s a little early, but Happy Halloween! It’s another crazy day here at AutoAnything and we are celebrating it in full costume. Togas, clowns, and the whole Beetlejuice crew have joined the AutoAnything team for a day fun tricks and good treats. We also got some new products to help us celebrate the mummies return.  For starters, we now have a proper area for our license plate frames, broken down by type to help you find what your looking for. So if you want a standard plate, or maybe some palm trees, bamboo, a US flag or some sexy looking ladies to accent your plate, we’ve got what you need in an easy-to-sort manner.  With this new build out comes two new products from License 2 Bling:
