For me running multiple businesses and keeping up with a family at home sometimes I think it would be nice to just keep my sanity and have a good time here and there... but all of us would like to do way more than time and sanity allow.
As far as Chitown4x4 goes there are some very cool things coming down the line for us with manufactures and with customers. We are embracing the Jeep JK platform as a legitimate expedition platform and working on a complete build up of one for everyone to see along the way.
1.) We are working on bringing to market our first wheel for the Jeep Jk crowd from Konig. It is a light weight and strong wheel aimed at the customer that understands adding a bunch of weight with a cast wheel makes a big difference in the way your rig drives and handles.
2.) Chitown4x4.com is looking at launching its first line of Skid plates for the Fj Cruiser, 4Runner and Jeep Jk. We are looking at producing a Stainless version and an Aluminum version for full under body protection on all models.
3.) The rear window kit was so popular that we have sent in for custom parts to be water jetted instead of modifying current Toyota parts for the kit. These will start shipping In February with the upgraded hardware. We have also dumbed down the kit to make the install more custom for the user and less problems with install.
4.) The GasPaX product continues on as our best seller at this point with 10 units out on the trail to date! Look for us to be running a number of promotions tied to this product for the new year including free Trasharoos with purchase.
5.) Vendors that we are working with to offer direct support and products here in the midwest for 2014 is, Baja Rack, Front runner, Rugged Ridge, Icon, Metaltech, Terraflex, Toytec, Konig, Rotopax, Gobi Rack, and Warrior Products.
All of this is very exciting and the dreams that we have are always larger than what can be done, but this above is what is most likely to be seen from us here at Chitown4x4 in 2014.
We wish you all of the best in your own quests for the new year and hope that you can join me for some of the fun parts!
