Here are our Friday top five.
- With one of the most straightforward company names ever, BedRug makes rugs for the bed of your truck. They keep your stuff from sliding around and provide thick padding so you can kneel, or even sleep, in your truck bed without discomfort. And they’re weather- and chemical-proof. You can soak the thing in battery acid if you want without any effect. Except maybe the EPA will come after you for having that much battery acid. For a closer look, check out our installation walk-through, and follow BedRug on Twitter.

Follow Toyota to keep up with their awesome trucks.

Andy Sheehan is a blogger, aspiring novelist, and relentless hoon. He plans to will his 2002 Subaru WRX Wagon to his firstborn, plans his daily commute around the swoop of its roads, and doesn’t plan to ever buy an automatic. A cool-car omnipath, he loves the common Mustang or Chevelle, but hunts for the weird and wonderful Velorexes and Cosmos of the autoverse. And when he can afford a garage, he’s going to turn an MX-5 into a race car.
