Compton, CA (PRWEB) March 15, 2013
4 Wheel Parts, prominent retailer and service provider of aftermarket parts for off-roaders, has named a new monthly winner through its Team 4 Wheel Parts website. Alex Chan of Oakland, California was awarded a $500 promo card for entering the drawing and showing off his rig. His 2006 Toyota Tacoma was selected to be the Featured Vehicle for February and is slated to appear in Off-Road Adventures Magazine.
Chan won in a drawing from among the hundreds of entrants who joined Team4WheelParts.com. Winners receive upgrades and parts for their vehicle and users enter by visiting the Team 4 Wheel Parts entry page and sharing their photos and videos. At the website, community members give and receive advice and display their 4x4s – trucks, Jeeps, and ATVs.
“After taking the truck off-road a few times, I started to see the direction I wanted to go,” says Alex. “I wanted to be able to go off-road and hit some decent trails, but also have the ability to drive across the country to explore. Certain parts aren’t available for the long bed Tacomas, so some items had to be custom made.”
Some upgrades and parts added to Chan’s Tacoma were:
- King Racing Front Coilovers
- Pro Comp Xtreme Mud Terrain Radials
- ARB Rear Air Locker
- Smittybilt XRC8 Comp Series 8,000 lb. Winch
After the build, Alex was eager to describe the truck’s improved performance. “With the addition of the ARB air locker, it can get through a lot of trails that it couldn’t before,” he says. “The King coilover shocks improved ride quality and performance and the ARB awning has come in very handy when out wheeling or at an event.”
