Matt from Scotland

By | Readers Rides | No Comments

Hi Brent/Linda
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!”

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. ”

Marlin Crawler Rubicon Roundup ’09

By | Readers Rides | No Comments
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.”

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.

Suzuki Snowplow

By | Readers Rides | No Comments

Hi there,

I recently ordered and received a front bumper with bullbar from you for a Suzuki Sidekick. I am pleased to say it fitted perfectly and we were able to mount the snowplow onto this unit very easily. The only problem we had was that the bullbar stuck out too far forward and was resting against the electric motor mounted on the frame of the plow. This motor rises up and down which pulls a chain which lifts the plow blade.

So the only thing we could do to fix it was to cut off the bullbar, and now the mount with the plow works perfectly. I have attached a picture to show it mounted – please let me know if you want to see more detailed pictures on how the plow fits and why we needed to cut the bullbar off.

As I had been looking for a mount for my Suzuki for a plow for a long time on the internet and other places, you guys may want to consider marketing this unit as it seemed an easy adaption of your regular winch design.

The snow plow I am using is this one from SnowBear which fits into a 2 inch receiver hitch. http://www.truckaddons.com/Catalog/subpages/snowbear_polarpro.htm

Again thank you for the swift response in making this unit and getting it shipped to me. It has been used already in 2 deep snowstorms and I am very very happy with it.

Many Thanks,

Hey Crew at Trail Tough

By | Readers Rides | No Comments
Hey crew at Trail Tough!

Just wanted to drop a email and tell you guys how grateful I am for
your products and service over the years!  There really is no one out
there like trail tough!  I attached a photo of my recent trip to Moab
and although I'm really just playing around  In this photo the truth
of the matter is trips like these are not possible unless you have
products that are built right and built tough. Pretty much everything
on my rig is from you guys and I owe you a big thank you for the fun
we have each time we go out wheeling and each time we seem push your
products to my perceived limits. Your products just flat work, provide
hours of fun, entertainment, and will get you home safe!

Keep up the good work!
