Matt from Scotland:
Perhaps you remember me, a few years ago I came over and bought some parts
from you and took them back to Scotland with me for my diesel Sidekick.
Everything worked out well with the kit and I’ve enjoyed using it ever since.
Only thing I’ve had to do to it is uprate the Toyota Birfields. It’s always been
admired in the Suzuki community over here and it was voted the best modified
truck at the biggest off road show in the UK. It was also featured on the front
cover of the biggest selling off road magazine in the UK as the best ever
modified Vitara (sidekick). All thanks to your products. I’m not sure if any of this
publicity ever brought you any sales though as most of the Suzuki guys over
here want to run their trucks on a tight budget!"
Matt has Trail Tough"Rockmonster transfer case gears and our "Trail Slayer"
SAS suspension Kit.
"Thank you for the emails for all of the specials that your company has to offer.
I think almost everything on my jeep is from you. I have no regrets on the parts
that you make for my samurai. I am sending some pics of my samurai to share
with you. Thank you again for all your help!
Wally has Trail Tough Front Winch bumper, our "Bad Boy" nerf bars and our
complete YJ Spring Suspension kit.
X90 with Trail Tough kit San Diego Style
"I get an unbelivable amount of people checking out your kit
we installed on my X90. We are still building the X90 cage
but have always wanted to build the 4dr. Kick as you have
on site. ... Will be at King of the Hammers & should have
a few good shots then. (No not entered) Thanx for a
great working product. "
Jim from San Deigo has Trail Toughs "Trail Slayer" SAS
conversion kit on his X-90.
"Hi I thought I would send some pics of my sammy. I bought the
Trail Slayer kit from you guys matter of fact I was the first one in
Utah to buy it. Anyway here are some pics of my little Suzuki buggy."
Rubicon Trip High Desert Roundup '09 (My RTI score was 1154,
best short wheelbase score of the day!)
"Hi Brent, it's Aaron Kahn
I got the Trail Slayer kit from you guys late last year, along with a late model transfer case with
4.24:1 gears, front and rear Toyota axles you bead blasted and welded all the bracketry on for me,
and you rebuilt the front and rear diffs and installed 5.71 gears and Lock-Right lockers.
Ever since I got the kit installed, I have been having a blast with it! The driveshafts have needed to
be reworked some, but otherwise everything has really worked well. I have already taken it
wheeling at the High Desert Roundup 2009, all around Calico Ghost Town, attended King of the
Hammers '09, all around Sliverwood Lake and Big Bear in So Cal, and we just got back from the
Marlin Crawler Rubicon Roundup '09. You wouldn't believe how many compliments I got last
weekend on the Rubicon! Everyone loves the truck and the suspension, people are seriously
amazed how easily it crawls over anything I point it at! We wheeled right through the Rubicon
trail, from Loon Lake to Cadillac Hill and out to Lake Tahoe, without one problem. I didn't even
take all the bypasses! As the weekend went on, my confidence in the truck's abilities grew, and
I started doing the harder routes! (I would like to get a roll cage in it before I get too crazy though)
So long story short, I figured I would send you links to a bunch of my pics, and if you would be
interested in using any pictures of my Sidekick on your website, that would be cool!!! I tell
everyone where I got the suspension kit from and how cool you guys were to deal with
when I bought everything. I'll bet there are a few people out there considering getting a
Sidekick with your suspension kit after seeing in person what mine can do."

I was sending this to in hopes my Samurai is worthy of being on the website.
"My Samurai is set up with Trail Tough SPOA lift and
is sitting on 30" BFG KM2. I have installed the Trail
Tough front Roll cage, Bad Boy Nerf Bars, Gas tank
skid plate, diff guards, and Mighty Kong. I have
added the Sidekick Power steering kit, Spartan
Lockers front and rear, and the 4.9 transfer case
gear set. I love the sound it has with the full Trail
Tough exhaust system. In the future i'm planning
to add the 16 valve engine upgrade, as well
as the rear drive line disconnect installed.Thank you,
Trail Tough for all the great products and superior

Love your company!!!!!!! I have been a member of Deschutes
County 4 wheelers since I could drive. Never wheeled
anything but Zuki's. My wife and I have started our own
Zuki race team here in San Diego where I'm stationed.
We have a couple small time competitions coming up in
September and then hopefully off to the 2014 King
of the Hammers everyman challenge. Your products
that are on my Zuki have lasted the longest. I have
had to replace most of it and the Trail Tough stuff
is still on there taking a beating. Thanks again for
making great and trustworthy products.
