Protect Your Truck Upholstery With Weathertech Floor Mats


We wanted to share a few reviews with you from some of our happy Weathertech floor mats customers.  Here’s what they’re saying:

“These are heavy-duty, thick, and durable floor liners. I’ll never buy a “mat” again, a “liner” is much better since it covers the majority of the carpet and is molded to fit your vehicle. The bottom of the mat is smooth (I would prefer some non-slip texture). Other than that, it’s perfect!”

“The Weathertech floor liners are exactly as advertised. They are well constructed and fit my vehicle perfectly. I was concerned about the color match but was pleasently suprised that they matched very well.”

“The fit and appearance are very nice; the WeatherTech emblem is classy. Only suggestion for future improvements is to extend the back lip, for when my seat is fully extended backward, my foot rests on top of the back ream lip. How much water will these things hold; I bet alot.”

Pre-holiday Specials Going on N-O-W


You’re a card-carrying member of NOW, and we’re dyed-in-the-wool advocates for the N-O-W principle of online commerce. I won’t bore you with the philosophical maxims of N-O-W (just skim over some John Stuart Mill to get the gist), but I will share with you its core ideal: deals should involve instantaneous freeness not contingent on snail-mail rebate forms and goofy catches hidden in fine print.

To wit, we bring you the latest round of AutoAnything promotions (a silver-tongued way to say free stuff, dude).

DiabloSport: Equip your speed demon with the unholy power of the DiabloSport Trinity, and you’ll get a free 2 1/16″ gauge pod mount. That’s a $24.99 value, son, and it’s good until supplies run out.

WeatherTech: Order a set of WeatherTech Floor Mats (front mats or a mat set (hey, this isn’t fine print, bro…just a minor caveat. No N-O-W tenets have been trampled here.)), and you’ll get a pair of mini floor mat coasters. That’s a priceless value because how can you put a cost on adorableness? Plus, it’s valid from 11/16/2010 – 12/16/2010.

Borla: Buy a boss Borla exhaust system, get a free Borla hat. Simple as that.

Surviving a Sales Trip with a Roof Top Cargo Carrier and a Cargo Liner


As a sales representative for a large medical supply company, it seems like my entire life is spent behind the wheel. I’ve crisscrossed the United States more times than Jack Kerouac. Every May, my boss sends me out on what he’s dubbed my “Summer Safari,” which basically means making the rounds between Baltimore and Milwaukee. This year, I’m arming my auto with a roof top cargo carrier and a cargo liner to keep my ride comfortable and protected.

If you asked me 10 years ago what I would be doing today, I would never have imagined saying that I rep compact kidney dialysis machines. I used to have dreams. When I started in college, I chose environmental studies as my major because I wanted to work for Greenpeace saving the planet from corporate and governmental pollution. Not to toot my own horn, but I was pretty brilliant. Then, I fell in love with one of my classmates: Gina. Her politics were similar to mine, but she had a more anarchistic sensibility. When she quoted McTaggart and Rousseau, I was putty in her hands. Unfortunately, she convinced me to take part in a midnight Lab Rat Liberation over at the Biology building. Someone must have tipped off campus security because they were waiting inside when we showed up. The whole crew was expelled, and Gina left me to go live in a redwood.

After the incident, my life spiraled into a tailspin. I went on a 2-month bender and woke up in Cincinnati with a gnarly gash on my forehead, a pocket full of beer caps, and $7 in my wallet. I had to donate plasma and sleep in the park for 3 weeks to save up enough cash for a bus ride home. I worked some odd jobs for a while—nothing I’m too proud of. And I kept drinking, heavily. There didn’t seem to be any reason not to be in an altered state. Sobriety just gave me an excuse to dwell on my failures, and that was the last thing I wanted running through my head. So I suppressed my reality with booze, and it was working well enough. However, I woke up one morning after a particularly hard night, and I spent 3 hours vomiting bile and blood. That’s when I knew I had to turn things around.

I checked myself into a local treatment center and started detoxing. I won’t lie; it was a rough couple of weeks working that poison out of my system, but I was determined and I persevered. Not only did I kick the sauce, I also made friends with a sales representative from a medical supply company. He said that he’d put in a good word for me once I got out, and I landed a junior sales position a week out of the center. Now, I’m a senior sales agent, which requires regular road trips to see clients.

Every May, my boss sends me on a 2-month whirlwind tour of the Eastern markets. He calls it my “Summer Safari,” but I hardly think that name is appropriate since I don’t really see any beaches. What I do see is a lot of fliers, samples and fast food in my car. Rather than let my Kia get wrecked, I’m making some upgrades. I added a roof top cargo carrier to hold my product brochures, and popped a cargo liner in the trunk to shield the carpet from all the samples. Now, I’m set.

Not all roof top cargo carriers are alike, the same is true about Cargo Liners.  I would avoid the corner auto parts stores that sell those cheap brands you’ve never heard of.  I found that Thule and Husky were the best, at least so far.
