14 Funky Fly Fresh Accessories For Friday


SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM

It’s Aloha Day (R.I.P. IZ) at work today, and we were treated to our usual Free Breakfast Friday. But I have a bone to pick: Were this an authentic Aloha Day, the break room would have been filled with the sweet sweet smells of grilled Spam, sticky rice and ketchup, rather than the usual aroma of Hot Pockets and Activia. Oh well. In spite of this cultural faux pas, we still added a whopping 14 new accessories onto AutoAnything.com. Sneak a peak:

Rhino Rack Ski & Snowboard Rack

  • Feature: These roof ski & snowboard racks from Rhino Rack carry up to six pairs of skis or 4 snowboards.
  • Benefit: If you always drive around with your Burton, you’ll have at least some justification for continuing to wear that fleece jester cap, even though your friends and coworkers really know that you’re just a raging Phish-head.

Rhino Boat Loader

  • Benefit: Makes boat thievery a lot gentler on your hernia.

Rhino-Rack Cargo Bag

  • Benefit: Strikes terror in your children after you threaten to stuff the next one who screams into the time-out roof cargo bag.

Softride Top Tube Bike Frame AdapterUnlike more common cosmetic enhancements, adding a top tube won’t clear up your wrinkles, inhibit you from showing emotion or drain your wallet. But, using one of these Softride bike rack accessories changes its look and functionality all for less than $30—no risks involved.

Wrockit Wrench Open-End Ratchet WrenchesOr, as Scooby-Doo would call them, Wrockit Wrench Ropen-Rend Ratchet Wrenches. These ingenious tools combine the rapid-tightening of a ratchet with the convenience of a wrench. A geneticist would call it a chimera.

Clingo Universal Hands Free PodiumThe difference that separates the Clingo hands free podium from most lecture podiums is that this one doesn’t tend to result in sweaty palms, cracking voices and a roomful of people being pictured in their underwear. But seriously, folks. These deluxe mobile electronics holders are the perfect addition to your assortment of desktop distractions.

Clingo Parabolic Sound SphereEven if geometry was never your strong point, you’re sure to appreciate how Clingo uses parabolas and spheres to create this stylish sound system. It’s both a natural amplifier for your iPhone, iPod or other portable MP3 player, and it’s a helmet in a pinch.

Gorilla Net Cargo NetJust as Tarzan’s jungle canopy provides security for the creatures of the rainforest, the Gorilla Net Cargo Net provides security for the contents of your truck bed. The only way to keep your stuff more secure than with these cargo nets & tie-downs would be if you trained an actual gorilla to lay in your truck bed and hold everything down with her heft.

Tripledge Wiper BladesThese Tripledge wipers are so thorough, even Prince Akeem Joffer would be impressed.

Tripledge Green Wiper BladesThese are the first windshield wipers deemed safe for septic tanks, plastic pipes and municipal water systems. We’re talking greener-then-Woody-Harrelson’s-cigarettes green, and that’s mighty green, baby. Thanks, Tripledge.

Armor All Ultra Flex Wiper Blades

Armor All Premium Wiper BladesJust like “extreme” and “supreme;” adding “premium” to a product name gives it the nebulous distinction of being better. But, these Armor All wiper blades are pretty premium—they leave a thin film of water-repellent goo on your windshield, so water beads up and wipes away easier.

Armor All Ultra Flex Wiper BladesYou can juice up, shave your armpits, get a spray tan, apply a glistening sheen of posing oil and flex like Lou Ferrigno. But, it won’t clear your windshield like these travel accessories from Armor All. They’re curved like a banana, which keeps them pressed against your windshield for more powerful wipes.

AEM Replacement Air Intake FilterMom was right: generic-brand dextro is just as good as Robitussin in purple drank, and AEM replacement air intake filters are just as effective as K&N air filters in air intake systems.

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.
