 WHAT  DOES  VEHICLE  UPFITTING  MEAN?

It  is  the  process  by  which  additional  electrical  and/or  electronic  equipment  is  installed  and  wired  into  the  vehicles  factory  electrical  system.  So  whether  you  have  a  Car,  Truck,  Motorcycle,  ATV,  Side-by-Side,  Boat,  Tractor  or  other  Off-Road  vehicle,  having  a  PRO  help  you  choose  and  install  the  proper  equipment  can  save  you  time,  money  and  a  lot  of  frustration.

ARE  VEHICLES  REALLY  THAT  COMPLICATED?

In  the  old  days,  a  vehicles  electrical  system  consisted  of  a  battery,  alternator  and various  loads,  such  as  power  windows  and  power  door  locks  controlled  by  switches. These  loads  would  operate  in  1  direction,  such  as  “up”  for  windows  or  “lock”  for  door locks  and  to  get  the  opposite  direction,  the  control  switch  would  have  to  reverse  the polarity  to  get  “down”  or  “unlock”.    Vehicles  now  use  what  is  called  “Data Communication”,  which  means  the  power  window  switch  on  your  drivers  door  “talks” to the  passenger  window  to  tell  it  to  go  up  or  down.

WHAT  DOES  THAT  MEAN  TO  ME?

One  of  the  most  critical  components  to  vehicle  upfitting  is  the  physical mounting  of product  and  on  every  install,   we  consider  several  things,  a few  of  which  are:

  • Is it safe to put screws / holes here?
  • Will it interfere with front/side/seat airbag deployment?
  • Will this location create a waterleak?
  • Are there any vibration/temperature concerns that could cause the equipment to fail?
  • When the equipment comes out, will there be any permanent damage to body panels?

When  it  comes  to  making  connections  to  your  vehicles  electrical  system, not  every  wire is  simply  a  power  or  ground  like  the  old  days,  so  making  1 wrong  connection  could:

  • Cause  your  equipment  to  work  improperly  or  only  at  partial  intensity
  • Create  a  world  of  bizarre  problems  with  how  your  vehicle  systems  operate
  • Void  your  factory  warranty,  leaving  you  to  pay  the  dealership’s  costs
  • Disable  or  impair  safety  equipment  on  your  vehicle
  • Cause  your  equipment  to  cut  out  intermittently  when  going  over  bumps  or  when  certain  temperature  or  moisture  conditions  are  present

If  the  installer  that  does  the  work  is  not  certified,  you  could  wind  up paying  them  to do a  poor  job  and  then  paying  us  to  repair  their  install AND  correctly  install  the equipment.  We  pride  ourselves  on  doing  installs in  brand  new  vehicles  that  when  the equipment  comes  out,  you’ll  never know  there  had  been  upfit  equipment  installed!!  That means  better  installs, better  operation  and  better  resale  value  for  you – THE  PRO DIFFERENCE
