January 29, 2013—Indiana-based All-Terrain Conversions LLC (ATC) announces faster, safer, more durable, flexible and economic vehicle conversions for the 1.7 million Americans confined to wheelchairs. The versatile ATC conversion can be made on several different makes and models of trucks and SUVs. ATC ( will begin with GM models and may expand to conversions of other makes. The door, which goes over head, requires less space while also providing protection from outside weather elements. The lift conversion can be made on the driver or passenger side.

“Our high-quality, versatile conversions are engineered to work effectively and economically with more stylish, desirable vehicles, such as trucks and SUVs,” states Geoff Minnick, Director of Marketing at ATC. “Wheelchair users have had few choices of vehicles that accommodate wheelchairs. In fact, conversions have historically been limited to minivans. Our conversion brings style and freedom to the mobility market. The door opens upward in very tight space creating cover from rain, sun or snow. Our clients love the one remote system that integrates with vehicle to start engine, lock and unlock doors and activate door and lift functions. The best feature might be the speed of the lift. Out and down in less than 20 seconds has brought rave reviews.”

The design of the ATC conversion stores the lift under the vehicle’s back seat. This feature allows space for more than 5 passengers in some models. It’s light weight construction, which runs on a single motor, helps maintain fuel efficiency and decreases wear on the brake and suspension systems.

Minivan sales to the general public have plummeted from 1.5 million in 2005 to 400,000
by 2009. The drop in sales clearly indicates the increase of popularity for SUVs and trucks with drivers throughout the country. ATC’s truck or SUV conversion features a higher quality lift system while providing the mobility market the stylish choices of trucks and SUVs.

Safety is a feature of the ATC conversion, featuring quick release pins for emergency extraction of driver or passenger in wheelchair and bump stop to prevent crushing when anything hits the truck or SUV door. ATC conversions also provide the extensive safety features of trucks. These safety features include all-terrain navigation, locking rear differential to prevent fish tailing, superior ground clearance to prevent getting stuck in mud or deep snow, optional 4 x 4 for all weather conditions and 5-star crash ratings.
Other features of ATC converted SUVs or trucks include:

•ATC conversion baseline costs are much lower than other market choices.
•Quality and product design of the hydraulic lift are made to last the lifetimes of more durable trucks.
•Lighter conversion system reduces wear on vehicle brakes and suspension and uses less fuel.
•Single motor provides quieter operation, and the entire upward/downward operation takes less than 20 seconds each way.
•Adjustable conversion height compensates for larger truck tires.
•Towing capacity to haul boats or trailers.
