About ARB 4x4 Accessories
Today, we supply and manufacture a complete selection of the most highly regarded 4WD accessories in the world. Unlike many 4x4 equipment suppliers that simply stock a collection of parts with a low cost, one size fits all mentality, ARB thoroughly researches and tests each product before releasing it to the 4x4 public. We consider many factors during this analysis, including specific vehicle characteristics, the conditions the product will work in, and the overall quality of the product itself. Take suspension systems for example. Many aftermarket 4x4 suspension kits ignore the obvious differences between varying vehicle suspension set-ups and driver requirements, offering instead an increased ride height and little else. ARBs Old Man Emu suspension division employs a very different approach. Typically our OME engineers will purchase the vehicle in question, test it in a variety of conditions to determine if and where improvements can be made, then develop a line of finely tuned, totally integrated suspension systems, each offering varying degrees of comfort, load carrying capability and control characteristics. When combined with our state-of-the-art manufacturing plants and a highly skilled workforce, this attention to detail is what sets ARB 4x4 equipment apart. So whether youre new to 4WDing and putting your first truck to the test, or a 4x4 veteran getting set for your next off road adventure, you can rely on ARB 4x4 Accessories we wont let you down.
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.
