In 1956, Basil Smith, also known as “Smitty”, started a small machine shop in his garage. Being one of the original four wheel drive enthusiasts, his chief concern was to develop four wheel drive equipment for trucks and Jeeps. Smitty’s son Tom was exposed to the four wheel drive lifestyle all his life. Tom was able to create new and innovative product ideas geared towards the growing off-road aftermarket industry.
Today Smittybilt supplies thousands of dealers and distributors worldwide with innovative truck and SUV accessories. Smittybilt has expanded its product offering to over 2,000 different products servicing the international truck and SUV markets. The constant involvement of management in the off-road markets has kept Smittybilt in touch with the latest market trends and on the forefront of engineering and design.
