In 1956, Basil Smith, also known as "Smitty", started a small machine shop in his garage, called Rock-ett Products. Being one of the original enthusiasts of the 4x4, his main concern was to develop equipment for 4x4 like trucks and small SUVs (Jeeps).
Over the years, his son Tom Smith took control of the company by being able to create new and innovative product ideas geared towards the growing off-road after-sales industry. As the business grew, Tom created more and more exciting new products, including the original "Nerf Bar" side stand and front and rear tubular bumpers for Jeeps. Today, Smittybilt proudly supplies thousands of dealers and distributors active around the world with innovative products and accessories for light pickups and SUVs.
The constant participation in management in the off-road and 4x4 markets has kept Smittybilt in touch with the latest market trends and at the forefront of engineering and design. Welcome to the new Smittybilt, where innovation and quality are once again at the forefront of product development. "Get the Original", Get Smittybilt!
