We might not have a chocolate waterfall...by Torklift Jen

…We do have a number of engineers who work very hard to build parts.
Okay maybe not!
Our engineers have reported to me they are pumping out new parts including tie downs and SuperHitch parts for the 2014/2015 seasons.
I find our testing and fitment process to be very interesting. On a daily basis, new trucks are brought in.
Let’s take a walk through what happens to a vehicle when it gets fitted for parts.
It pulls into our factory and is lifted onto an enormous hoist. From there a number of engineers, R&D fellas, and welders start to tackle this truck like perfectly coordinated defensive football play.
One person approaches the overloads to verify the proper StableLoad fit. Another person will take measurements at the hitch installation locations and tie down attachment locations. From there, that person will design a hitch and tie downs that work with the truck frame using only the pre-drilled holes to make for an easier installation. Then comes the Hidden Power battery mount. This attaches directly to the frame underneath the truck bed and provides a spare battery that trickle charges for spare power. This person must determine where exactly the mount will go on the frame and just how many can be installed at one time
It’s so coordinated that multiple parts are fitted onto the truck and that same truck is out the door in a matter of just a few days.
We make it a point to test all fits on every truck we make a part for because we are committed to providing no-drill applications for easy DIY. Can’t argue with that!
