The Top Automotive Accessories I Use the Most

Now I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not a huge car guy. I don’t mind working on cars and it’s actually fun and relaxing to spend time doing that. But it’s one of those things where I know enough to be dangerous and can start doing more harm than good with what I do know. So generally I try to stay away from fixing any family vehicles on my own. But what I’ve found is there are a few accessories that I’ve come to really count on and use quite often. So those are the ones I wanted to talk about below.

Smittybilt Universal Snatch Block

Smittybilt Universal Snatch BlockOur jeep is one of our most used vehicles. Even though it’s older (1997) it’s still humming right along like a champ. I have a Smittybilt Synthetic Rope Winch attached to it which is always fun to use. And what I found is that after I incorporated this snatch block into the mix, I was about doubling the pulling strength of my winch. I had no idea it was going to make that much of a difference.

Now on the downside the tolerance can be a little loose. But considering the price of this snatch block and how reasonable it is to purchase, I think it’s a very fair price and a good value.

This is one of those items that I think makes a ton of sense to add to your arsenal if you have a winch. It’s a great way to get more pulling power for not much money.  Just double-check to make sure it will be compatible with what your using, but this snatch block is a universal fit, so it should work in most applications.

Briggs & Stratton 30W Engine Oil

Briggs & Stratton 30W Engine OilI didn’t think I’d ever be raving about engine oil but this stuff is worth talking about. I use this primarily with my Yamaha EF2000iS which is a gas powered portable inverter.

It’s a great portable inverter to use but it’s important to have oil on hand for it. And in my experience, this has been the perfect oil to use on a small engine like this. Haven’t had any problems with it and it’s kept my Yamaha working like a champ.

If you don’t want to or can’t get to a store to pick some up you can get it on Amazon. It comes in a 48oz size which I like so you don’t have to worry about running out anytime soon.
