Next was to test it out and make sure it would hold up. The following weekend a group of us went to the badlands offload park, filled up the mount full of gas and thrashed all over the park for 2 full days. The creation held up, I was shocked myself, not because the design was bad, but because I have never welded anything of substance in my life. Not only did the creation hold up, but it also proved to hold up for a full week of off road abuse through Moab and continued to hold up for years to come. See, 5 years ago, I created the Fuel pax holder for the FJ cruiser. Picture below is from the night it was created..
So back to the miles stone part. I had developed the powered rear window back in 2008, but did not start actually selling a kit until 2013 when we started the business, sure most of the local fj’s had versions of the kit on their trucks but it was just a custom at that point.
The mile stone part did not occur to me until tonight, but I went back in our records and discovered that we sold our 300th powered rear window kit the day before we left for summit. That means that we sold 300 window kits to 300 happy customers on our 5 year anniversary. Kinda Cool! For those that have not experienced the rear window kit. We have 40 kits back in stock as of this moment ready to ship! Come and scoop them up!
