GearJunkie Motors Editor Bryon Dorr hand-selected his favorite 2022 Black Friday deals worth looking into. Whether a gift to yourself or a loved one, these product deals are worth grabbing before they’re gone.
Every year most companies step up with big deals to close out the year and get people in the holiday-buying mood. This year many deals are staying around longer and starting earlier — many well before Black Friday and beyond Cyber Monday.
We get emails from companies far and wide asking us to spread their sales. Keep in mind, we are picky, and we’ve hand-selected the deals to share with you here. These are products we’ve used and/or know are worthy of your hard-earned money. And, they are deals that jumped out at us as great values.
Automotive Black Friday Deals
All BOXO USA tools are on sale for 20% off with the code BLACKFRIDAY.
I’ve been using BOXO tools in my garage for about two years now. The tools are well labeled, organized, and have held up to some serious abuse. BOXO toolboxes are also loaded with useful features and can take a beating.
If you need a proper full set of metric tools, especially if you have a motorcycle, BOXO’s latest 103-piece metric MotoBox tool set in a white, 26-inch, five-drawer portable toolbox is a great buy. The regular price is $1,120, and it’s now $896 for Black Friday.
The sale runs through Nov. 27, 2022, at 11:59 p.m. PT.
I travel all over the globe and try to stay off the beaten path as much as possible, almost always preferring dirt over pavement. In the US, I haven’t found a better off-road navigation tool than onX Offroad. Using a combination of the web and app versions, you can plan, organize, and execute some pretty wild remote adventures. This includes off-road, overland, motorcycle, UTV, and even snowmobile adventures.
Get a Premium or Elite subscription to onX Offroad for yourself or a loved one this holiday season for a 30% discount. Use code BLACKFRIDAY when checking out.
This Black Friday offer ends Dec. 1, 2022, at 12 p.m. MT.
I was able to transform a cracked-cement detached garage into a real thing of beauty with the installation of SwissTrax Ribtrax Pro flooring tiles. These tiles were easy to install, looked amazing from day one, and hold up to some serious abuse. I wish I had negatives to tell you about them, but there really aren’t any.
Yes, a quality product like this isn’t inexpensive, but it is a great value when you look at the alternatives for garage floors. This flooring comes in 15.75 x 15.75 x 0.75-inch tiles and normally costs $5.87 per square foot.
SwissTrax is running a Black Friday 20% off sale, bringing the price per square foot down to $4.70. Now that is a good value!
No discount code is needed. The sale is live now and ends Nov. 28, 2022, at midnight PT.
Fire bans are everywhere these days, but when camping it’s still really nice to have some flames to gather around and be entranced by. Solo Stove makes a full line of smokeless fire pits that are great for camping and your patio.
The Solo Stove Ranger 2.0 is a full-sized (15 x 12.5 inches), portable (15 pounds) fire pit that is great for overland travel, RVing, and car camping. It comes with its own carrying case and has great cooking accessories. The Ranger 2.0 retails for $300 but is on sale for $180.
Now through Dec. 4, 2022, a variety of Solo Stove products are on sale for up to 40% off. For that entire period, the Ranger 2.0 will be 40% off.
RYOBI tools are exclusively sold through Home Depot, and this Black Friday/Cyber Monday there are going to be some great deals. RYOBI’s ONE+ cordless system spans an insanely wide range of tools and is perfect for the garage mechanic and occasional handyman.
I’ve been using the RYOBI cordless system for nearly a decade now and have been really impressed with the value you get for your money. Of course, if you can snag one of these holiday deals, that value will be even higher. Expect 20-34% off.
I know — a cellphone case and mount don’t seem like automotive products to get excited about. But here’s the deal: I swear by this product and use it all the time in my four-wheeled vehicles and on my adventure motorcycle. The case is slim, sleek, and looks great. The mounts are simple, easy, and secure.
The Peak Design moto mount in particular has vibration isolation built in and is super quick and secure to use. I recently used it on a 900-plus-mile adventure motorcycle trip and the system worked flawlessly.
The Peak Design holiday sale this year is now live and runs through 11:59 p.m. PT on Monday, Nov. 28, 2022. Most mobile phone cases are 30% off (10% off for iPhone 14 cases), and all mounts and accessories are 10% off.
Ten percent might not seem like a huge deal, but these products are very rarely on sale at all. These Peak Design products make perfect gifts, although you’ll likely want to pick some up for yourself as well.
The perfect gift does exist! Whether for yourself or a loved one, the gift of performance-driving training is one that will create lasting memories and skills.
I’ve attended the Radford Racing School outside Phoenix, Arizona, myself and can attest to the expert instruction, impressive training facilities, and really fun cars on offer. If you get the chance, you should experience an open-wheel race car for yourself, and Radford offers Formula 4 programs. I’ve driven a lot of fun cars, but never before one with the mechanical grip on offer in one of these proper race cars.
For Black Friday, Radford Racing School is offering 30% off all courses and gift certificates over $500. Use RADFORD30 at checkout before this deal ends on Cyber Monday.
It’s rare that the world-class DirtFish Rally School is discounted, but most years around Black Friday there are some deals to be had. This year you can sign up for a half-day, one-day, or three-day course in both rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive rally cars for a 20% discount.
That’s such a good deal that I’m planning to sign up for a course and talk a few of my friends into joining in on the fun as well.
DirtFish’s sale runs from Nov. 24 (at 12:01 a.m. PT) through Nov. 28, or until all the seats in the courses offered at the discount are filled.
Adventure trailers don’t come any more quirky and cool than those from TAXA Outdoor. While I still haven’t spent a night in one of these camper trailers, I have crawled around most of the models. They seem well-constructed, lightweight, and full-featured.
For the holidays this year, TAXA Outdoors is offering some big savings and special offers on its seven habitats.
- TigerMoth: $1,000
- TigerMoth Overland: $1,000
- Cricket: $1,500
