About Tuff Country
Tuff Country EZ-Ride Suspension was incorporated over 20 years ago realizing the desperate need for quality suspension products in the after market world. As well as supplying the 4WD enthusiast with the best quality, Tuff Country EZ-Ride Suspension also offers you the most competitive price structure in the industry. Tuff Country EZ-Ride Suspension opened its doors in July of 1988 in a small 1000 square foot facility. We have now expanded into a new 53,000 square foot high tech facility nestled at the bottom of the beautiful Rocky Mountains in Salt Lake City, Utah. Tuff Country EZ-Ride Suspension utilizes the transverse terrain of the Rocky Mountains and the rugged terrain of Utah's southeast desert near Moab Utah as its testing grounds. All brackets are made from high quality top grade steel and cut to precise dimensions by a state of the art computerized laser beam. What does this mean for you? It means every bracket is made the same and will allow a proper fit.
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.
