11 New Rounds in the AutoAnything Glock


Arigato, otearai

On a side note, the phone fairy stopped by AutoAnything’s office last night and left us all Avaya treats. What I can’t get over, though, is how similar the ringer sounds to the jingle the toilets at Tokyo’s Narita Airport play after you’ve made an honorable deposit. Skeevey.

Oh yeah, we also added some new accessories to our digital shelves. Dig these:

Superwinch S3000 WinchWhen not winching crime, Superwinch dons the mild-mannered affect of a hack journalist.

Superwinch S4000 WinchThis Superwinch winch is stronger than the S3000, but also more sensitive to pictures of starving children…a winch that’s not afraid to cry.

Superwinch LP8500 WinchWith 8,500 lbs of line pull, the only thing this 8000 lb winch can’t do is replace your beloved manga body pillow, Kumiko.

Superwinch EP 9.0 WinchThis Superwinch winch boasts 9,000 lbs of line pull, perfect for recovering from a mud hole, but you’ll need a patient shrink to recover from the news that Nazareth isn’t including your city on their 2010 Love Still Hurts tour.

Superwinch EPi 9.0 WinchThe EP 9.0 winch has 100′ of wire rope. The EPi 9.0 has 125′. Do the math—you can go 25% more bananas on your next Jeep jamboree with these winches.

Superwinch EP 12.5 Winch—The perfect winch for rescuing your rig or pulling out the load-bearing supports on that granny flat your neighbor built too close to your property line. Damn you, McGillicuddy!

Superwinch EP 16.5 Winch—For perspective, this brawny winch has enough backbone to reel in almost 23 pairs of McGwire twins simultaneously.

Superwinch S5000 Winch—Compared to its bigger brethren, this winch may seem like a Webster among Reruns, but it kicks like Mister Ed.

Kurgo Combo PackageKurgo Dog On the Go survival kit contents check. In it you’ll find: one bright orange and black Quantum Leash, one Tru-Fit Smart Harness with padded chest plate, one nylon webbed Wander Collar…shoot, a fella’ could have a pretty good weekend in Dallas with all that stuff.

Kurgo Co-Pilot Dog Seat CoverDog may be your co-pilot, but it’s not going to stop her frothy lather of slobber from raining down all over your seat. These seat covers for dogs from Kurgo can help protect you from resenting your dog vs. cat decision.

Softride Ski Rack Attachment—It converts your Softride bike rack into a ski & snowboard rack when you want to convince your coworkers that you do more on the weekends than simply curl up fetal and weep.

We snuck a few motorcycle covers and ski racks up onto the site last night


I know, I know. You were expecting this post to herald in the launch of the new BAK BakFlip tonneau cover and the intakes and filters from our mysterious new brand. That’s still coming soon.

In the meantime, you can wet your whistle on a few new motorcycle covers and ski racks:

AutoAnything Weekly Product Review: Yakima Ski Racks!


Although we haven’t even gotten past Labor Day yet, we here at AutoAnything are bringing in the gear that you’re gonna want when winter rolls through. Thats why we have just picked up 4 new Yakima ski racks that will get you and your gear where you need to go in style! The new models are the FatCat, the FreshSesh, the Big PowerHound, and the HitchSki.

The can all carry 6 pairs of skis or 4 snowboards, they all have big lock/release buttons so you don’t have to take your gloves off, and the roof mounted racks all have integrated binding lifts so you don’t scratch your roof up. So what’s the difference you ask? Here’s a quick break down:

The Yakima FreshSesh ski rack is Yakima’s traditional style ski rack. It’s easy to use, carries lots of equipment, and even comes with two ultra-cool decals to give you some added style on your way to the mountain.

The Big Powderhound is Yakima’s standard rack, but blown up by 10-15% to accommodate equipment that’s a little larger than normal.

The Yakima FatCat 6 is extra wide so you can carry all your powder-day equipment with ease. It also has a sleek, lower profile design than most other ski and snowboard racks, so it should help conserve those MPG’s. This rack got the “Gear of the Year” award from Men’s Journal magazine, so you know its high quality!

The HitchSki doesn’t mount on the roof, but instead to a trailer hitch giving you easy ground-level access to your gear. And since it mounts behind your vehicle, you won’t lose any precious MPG’s since you don’t gain any extra aerodynamic drag.

Here’s a few photos to help you choose what’s right for you.
