Weather Guard Truck Box Review – Saddle Box Style

Having a truck for work is crucial.  On any given day, you have no idea what you will be hauling around.  Having the bed in the back is great and makes your life so much easier.  However, there is one small problem or price we have to pay for the ability to have an open bed.  We lose the ability to securely store and transport certain items.  Now if you have a crew cab, sure you have some room to lock up your tools, but for a single cab, how do you lock your stuff up and protect it?  As...

Longacre Racing Tire Gauges – Check Them Out

A while back I was surfing on our Power Tool Forum and came across an interesting post called Do you have a favorite tire gauge that was posted by jbw55.  He posted a picture of his Longacre tire gauge and I thought it was very cool looking, much nicer than my cheap $5 gas station gauge.  Right after that we received a bunch of emails asking us to review and show these gauges off.  After doing a little research I found out these are from Longacre Racing Products who mainly deals with racing and performance items.  I looked around and...
