Photographers: Manufacturers
Spotless Shine
Who: Mothers
What: Detailing supplies
Why: Whether you've got a truck, car, bike, or boat, keeping it shiny and clean is the key to making it look good. We've tried a lot of detailing supplies over the years, and we'll be the first to say you can't go wrong with Mothers products—they even smell good.

Tough Timepiece
Who: G-Shock
What: GA1000-1A Aviation Series watch
Why: Every guy needs a solid watch, and there are few more solid than a G-Shock. They're insanely durable, look tough, and this model even has an integrated digital compass. So ditch your lame bargain-bin watch, and pick up something truly manly.

Fast Furniture
Who: Dream Fast
What: Real fiberglass racecar bed
Why: This fiberglass racecar bed lets your kids' imaginations run wild, and provides a fun addition to any little gearhead's room. It's available in several bright and durable colors, and you can have it custom-painted or add stickers for the ultimate in realism. Best of all, it's made in America and won't break like those cheap Chinese plastic ones at the shopping mall. (Mattress, box spring, and sheets not included.)

Pneumatic Power
Who: Chicago Pneumatic
What: CP7748 ½-inch impact wrench
Why: Reliable, affordable, and powerful, the Chicago Pneumatic ½-inch impact is a true workhorse. Finding one of these under the tree would make any gearhead crack a smile, and it'll certainly make his life easier in the garage.

Smooth Pipes
Who: PaceSetter
What: 17⁄8-inch long-tube headers for '99-'06 GM trucks and SUVs
Why: CNC-machined and milled flanges ensure these long-tubes fit flawlessly, and mandrel-bent steel tubing allow exhaust gases to flow freely. These PaceSetter headers will significantly improve your truck's horsepower and torque, and they're even made right here in the USA. What more could you want?

Tunable Dampers
Who: QA1
What: Stocker Star adjustable aluminum shocks
Why: Riding in a truck with worn-out shocks is miserable, and even if your truck's shocks are still functioning properly, they're not designed for performance. QA1's adjustable Stocker Star shocks, on the other hand, ride smoothly and can be fine-tuned for precision handling.

Brutal Protection
Who: G2 Axle & Gear
What: Brute aluminum differential cover
Why: The best mods for any truck are those that make it both look better and function better. The Brute aluminum cover does both, by cooling and protecting your differential and also providing your truck with a menacing new look.

Tunes To Go
Who: Soundfreaq
What: Sound Kick wireless Bluetooth speaker
Why: The Sound Kick is perfect for playing music on the go, and it pumps a surprising amount of sound out of a compact package. These speakers are ideal for tailgaiting, truck shows, or working in the garage, and they're available for under $100.

Hybrids Beware
Who: EEM Productions
What: One Less Prius sticker
Why: The Prius is the mortal enemy of anything cool and custom—it's basically an appliance on wheels. Show the world that you're proud to have a vehicle that stands out with this sticker. It also makes for a great stocking stuffer.

Who: Rancho
What: Level It suspension kit for '03-‘12 Ram 2500/3500
Why: Lift the frontend of your Ram for an aggressive look, and clear 35s with ease. Precisely tuned springs and monotube shocks give a smooth, controlled ride, and Rancho's included sway bar relocation brackets provide improved steering response.

Bird's-Eye View
Who: Rydeen
What: RDV360 multi-camera system
Why: A few years ago, several luxury manufacturers introduced 360-degree overhead camera systems to provide drivers with total visibility around their vehicles. However, this feature was reserved only for expensive luxury cars—until now. Rydeen's ingenious four-camera system makes sure you know your truck's surroundings at all times.
