Hella Optilux 1450 Fog LightsThese smallish fog lights from Hella lights were originally designed 42 years before Columbus sailed the ocean blue, but they were deemed heretical and locked away in the Pontiff’s chifforobe until now.

Hella Optilux 2020 Combo Fog and Driving LightsYou couldn’t even decide on which absurd TGIF cocktail to order last night, but you expect to decide between getting fog lights or driving lights? Son, just get these two-in-one lamps from Hella Automotive Lights and stop your hem-hawing.

Hella Optilux 1200 Series Fog LightsFeature: They’re oblong fog lights, dude. Benefit: Use ’em the next time you’re driving through Colorado in a snow storm after finishing your novel, and maybe you won’t go off the road and end up trapped in a sledgehammer-wielding kook’s basement, you dirty bird, you.

Hella Black Magic LightsAlthough perfectly titled to spotlight your next voodoo ceremony, these Hella driving lights summon black optics—not malicious powers.

A Triple Lindy Of New Products & One Update


Justing Bieber Hearts Justin Bieber

Today’s new product announcement goes out to Justin Bieber. Tiger, you put a beat in our normally bleak, protestant work ethic.

Bestop PowerBoardsIf machines had consciousness, I bet every time these shockingly high-tech auto-retracting running boards from Bestop tuck up against your rocker panels that they think to themselves, “I’d step on me” while Q Lazzarus’s Goodbye Horses plays through their mechanized and weatherproofed brain.

Bonus—There’s a $100 rebate for these Bestop running boards, but you only have until 10/31/2010 to save. So act with moderate haste.

Bestop TrekStepA pickup without a retractable, rear-mounted truck step that works when your tailgate is open is like a key party without high balls and Herb Alpert records—the resulting knee aches, back pains and self-recrimination are rude awakenings, reminding you that you’re not 34 anymore (and it’s not 1974 anymore, either). Hey, pops. Act your age with a Bestop tailgate step.

CalTrend Tweed Seat CoversKing Edward VII’s favourite fabric was tweed, and who are we to question the most dashing constitutional monarch in history? Besides, were we to speak out against his taste in canvas seat covers, especially the finely tailored seat covers made by Cal Trend, he’d repress us lowly peasants and demonstrate the violence inherent in the system.

Truxedo B-LightTruXedo wanted to call these truck bed lights “A-Lights,” but the only celebrities who responded to the endorsement listing were Delta Burke, Rudy Ray Moore and Dave Coulier. Personally, we think that if these LED lights were to show up to the A-list Hollywood club, Voyeur, the bouncer would be so impressed by the powerful bulbs and ease of installation that he’d let them in. Not to mention, these Truxedo lights are backed by a one year warranty.

PlasmaGlow Fire & Ice LED Mud Flap LightsLike a mullet, these LED lights from PlasmaGlow attach to your mud flaps to give your truck a business-in-the-front, party-in-the-back kind of look.

Armed with a Phoenix Systems brake bleeder, anyone can get rock-hard brakes in about 10 minutes. Rock-hard buttocks, though, are not guaranteed…but, hey, there is a lot of squatting involved.

Armor Lid Tonneau CoverDress your truck with the best form of defense since the moat: the new Armor Lid. This tough-as-nails hard tonneau cover boasts a triple Triplex design that can shoulder up to 1,000 lbs (that’s like an entire kindergarten class) and dual twist locks (to keep the grubby, paste-covered fingers of said kindergarteners off your valuables).
