If you drive in a variety of conditions – off road in hard-pack, off road in dunes, highway travel, etc. – then you’re probably constantly tampering with the air levels of your tires. While it’s easy to let some air out of the tires, putting air back in can be a bit more challenging unless you’re equipped with a high-quality onboard air system. There are several onboard air systems that will get the job done, but when choosing one, you need to make sure it will work with your size tires and perform to your standards. Here are some specs on some of the top-selling models to help make your decision easier.
If you’re a fan of George Harrison, then yesterday must have been like Christmas. Everywhere, everyone was dusting off their Revolver albums and putting Harrison’s “Taxman” into heavy rotation in honor of our annual duty of forking over a chunk of hard-earned cash to the IRS.
Hopefully, though, you got a tidy refund. And if it’s burning a hole in your pocket, we added a couple new accessories onto the site that are worth checking out.
DICE G2 iPod & iPhone Cradles—It’s your typical Ice-T-goes-from-singing-about-dusting-cops-off-to-playing-a-cop story: the O.G. DICE Electronics G2 had a tad too much G for middle-America, but this restyled iPod cradle with diminished G-ness is just right for the amber waves of skittish shoppers. Best of all, this iPod/iPhone car cradle works perfectly with Dice Silverline Pro iPod Car Adapters and the new Dice MediaBridge.
VIAIR 85P Portable Air Compressor—Remember: it’s not the size of the dog in the fight; it’s the size of the fight in the dog. And this 60 psi air compressor from VIAIR packs a mean bite even though it weighs in at a mere 4.25 lbs—that’s less than a Chihuahua!
And if these aren’t of interest to you, here are a few timeless classics worthy of any tax rebate:
- Trailer Hitches: Get where you’re going and bring what you need in style with a beefy trailer hitch. There are many manufacturers to choose from, but Curt Hitch has a solid reputation for superior fitment and quality that can’t be beat.
- Tonneau Covers: Nothing beats the slicked n’ tricked look of a custom truck. Give yours that little extra by donning it with a shiny new truck bed cover from Bak tonneau.
- Performance Chips: Just because your ride looks and sounds stock doesn’t mean it is. Give your ride a stealthy boost of power by tuning it with a Superchips, Hypertech or DiabloSport power programmer.
- Brakes: If you want to stop faster, you gotta beef up those discs and pads. EBC rotors keep their cool under pressure, much better than those stock rotors you got. Mate them to a set of Hawk brake pads and you’ve got a winning combination.
