Smittybilt Aftermarket Truck Accessories

Smittybilt was founded nearly 50 years ago by people with a simple but clear vision: develop products that work, last, and look great!

Smittybilt continues to engineer and manufacture products with the same philosophy of its founders. Smittybilt’s innovative products are designed from consumer demand, and are engineered, manufactured and shipped in our state of the art 130,000 sq. ft. facility in Corona, California. Over the past several years, we have instituted an intensive quality program to inspect and verify every part we manufacture before it leaves our facility. We are dedicated to ensure that our customers receive superior goods and at the end of the day are satisfied with their purchase.

The stylish look, quality, value, and legendary fit of Smittybilt products has consistently ranked high with customers, resulting in the expansion of the company to a national level. In September 2002, Smittybilt was acquired by a small group of investors with over 50 years experience in the Automotive Aftermarket sector. With their drive and industry expertise, their goal is to continue the corporate vision of supplying a wide range of accessories for cars, sport utility vehicles, pick-up trucks and heavy over-the-road vehicles.

Smittybilt offers the broadest and finest line of tubular products in the industry. Applications are constantly updated for new vehicles while applications for the classic and older vehicles still remain. The newest products include the Outland™ series of products and five finishes of Sure Step™ side bars. The new Predator series front and rear bumper guards provide great fit, and strength, but in a new unique design. Also new for 2005 are a vast array of new and exciting products such as the Titanium Sure Step, Grille Savers, Ultra Bar Sport, The Smittybilt Rock Crawler Bumper Series and the Predator Double Tube Side Steps. Each product exhibits a sleek new design and is available in our Exclusive Smittybilt Finishes.

Smittybilt’s dedication to quality, engineering, and excellence are unmatched in the industry. Our company is determined to make our brand, the brand you trust. Thank you again for visiting us and enjoy the ride!

Where Smittybilt Began
Basil Smith, also known as “Smitty,” started his business as Rock-ett Products in 1956 in his garage, with his main operation as steel machine work. Being one of the original four wheel drive enthusiasts, his chief interest was to develop special four wheel drive equipment. Among the items Mr. Smith perfected were overdrive conversions for four wheel drives, automatic locking front hub caps for Jeeps, full floating axle conversions, a variety of engine adapters and hangers, oversize brakes, improved soft tops for Jeeps, accessories for Jeeps and tow bars.

In 1962, “Smitty” purchased a house with a large lot in South El Monte, California. Here he built the original Smittybilt building, and within three years had several people working for him. In 1973, Basil tore down his house and built a new building to help accommodate his expanding business. In the same year, the company was incorporated and changed its name to Smittybilt, Inc.

Over the years, Smitty’s son, Tom worked at Smittybilt and ultimately took over the management and ownership of the company in 1979. Having been brought up around the shop and being constantly exposed to the four wheel drive lifestyle, he was able to introduce new and exciting ideas into the truck and sport utility aftermarket.

In 1992, Smittybilt relocated to a new 50,000 square foot facility in Corona, CA and in October of the same year added on another 50,000 square foot warehouse. Continuing to grow and profit, Smittybilt was sold to Lund International Holdings, an Atlanta based Corporation in January of 1999.

Back in September 2002, Smittybilt was acquired by a small group of investors with over 100 years of combined automotive aftermarket experience. The purchase included both Smittybilt, Inc. and Trailmaster Suspension, Inc., combining them under one name “Smittybilt Automotive Group, Inc.” At the time of this acquisition, a new truck and SUV accessory line focused on accessories for Jeep, cargo management and travel and towing products was created under the name of Outland by Smittybilt.

Where Smittybilt Is Today
Since the acquisition in 2002, the Smittybilt Automotive Group experienced exponential growth due to it’s expanding product line, innovative new products and a commitment to the same quality standards that “Smitty” set forth in his original business plan. In April 2004, Smittybilt Automotive Group, Inc. sold the Trailmaster Suspension Division of their business to concentrate on their core strengths – supplying consumers, active dealers and distributors worldwide with innovative functional accessories for Trucks and SUV’s.

Now in a brand new 130,000 square foot facility in Corona, California, Smittybilt Automotive is committed to provide our customers with fresh trends and superior quality parts. With over 100 new products and an annualized growth rate of over 35%, the Smittybilt Automotive Group has stayed in touch with the latest movements and is on the forefront of engineering and design. Our quality control department ha been doubled over the last year to ensure our product is only the finest available.

Where Smittybilt Is Headed
In expanding growth, Smittybilt Automotive Group is determined to provide consumers with consistent quality and design that symbolizes trust and excellence. We are dedicated to supplying products that stay in tuned with customer demand as well as offer accessories that raise the bar with our sleek new designs and innovations.

Our path to success is modeled by the philosophy of our founders –

“Develop Products That Work, Last, and Look Great!”
