About Performance Accessories
For the past 25 years Performance Accessories has continued set the industry standard for truck and SUV body lifts. We have the most comprehensive line of body lift kits available on the market today for two and four wheel drive vehicles and continue to dominate the market share with over 90% of all body lifts sold being Performance Accessories. Body lifts came into the market approximately 30 years ago to fill a much needed gap that suspension lifts could not provide. Performance Accessories body lift kits are a very affordable option when considering lifting a vehicle; in some cases a body lift can be as much as three times less than a comparable suspension system. The primary reasons consumers choose to lift their vehicles is to allow for the installation of larger tires and wheels, thus increasing the off-road ability of the vehicle and the desired custom look the consumer is trying to achieve. Performance Accessories body lifts on average allows the consumer to increase tire size by two to three sizes. Performance Accessories body lift kits include the highest quality, laser cut, CNC machined steel components, steering extensions, shift adaptors, body lift blocks, bushings and body mounts. All our hardware is zinc plated and or powder coated for corrosion protection and come with complete detailed installation instructions. We also offer urethane gap guards to fill the gap between the frame and the lifted body to give the consumer that completed OEM look. When you combine the many reasons listed above along with our commitment to total customer satisfaction in our products and services we are sure you will agree that Performance Accessories will continue to lead the way in value and performance for many years to come.
About Chux Trux
Chux began as an idea back in 1990. At the time there were very few automotive accessory stores and mini trucks were very popular. I was a mini truck enthusiast. After working in the world of auto parts for most of my life and after that the cell phone business and part time pin-chaser in a bowling alley, I put together a business plan using books from the library, consulted with some guys I knew from a local wholesale automotive supplier and started going to banks for funding. I visited quite a few banks but after about 9 months, I was granted an SBA backed loan and started looking for buildings. After a long search I ended up at a small shop that sat way back off the road in Independence, Mo. on the east side of Kansas City. The building had been a Taylor Rental store (division of Stanley Tools) and Taylor had many years remaining on the lease even though they had closed the store. On June 1, 1991 Chux Trux opened for business. The first day I sold 1 bugshield. That’s all. The first month we totaled 12,000 in sales. Same the second month. There was one other employee at the time but he didn’t always show up for work. After a month went by, I let him go. For the next two months I sold and installed everything. The business was growing. In September, Shawn Shipers wandered in and we hit it off. I asked him if he needed a job and he said yes. He was from Pattonsburg, Mo. I had never heard of it. Today, we have grown to multiple locations with over 2 dozen employee’s, including a commercial division selling B2B including car dealers, contractors, municipalities and more.
