Black Widow Off-Road Debuts The Black Widow Series Jeep YJ Sliders (TJ and JK applications in fabrication now)
Company’s First Product Offerings Include Cost-Effective, High-Quality Components
SANDY, UTAH, November 20, 2008 — Black Widow Off-Road (BWOR), a design and manufacturing company of after-market, 4x4 off-road accessories, has unveiled their next revolutionary product in the company’s proprietary line of quality, safety, self-recovery and storage devices. This off-road solution is designed to be easily installed by Jeep owners, making self-retrofitting an affordable, simple option.
“I am excited to launch Black Widow Off-Road and offer 4x4 off-road professionals and enthusiasts the gear and accessories they need to independently go anywhere with confidence,” says Black Widow Off-Road Founder and President Erik Schranz. “My goal is to make it easy to upgrade components on a four-wheel drive Jeep, truck, or SUV with superior, innovative products that are simple to install and durable. BWOR products are designed to offer the HIGHEST quality, safety, convenience and creative storage solutions at significantly lower costs than comparative quality components currently available on the market today.”
Black Widow Off-Road: Black Widow Series Jeep YJ Rock Sliders
The Black Widow Series Jeep YJ Rock Sliders are constructed of CNC bent and laser cut 3/16” inch plate steel, wrapped around the rocker panel and mount directly to the body mounts at the frame with little to no lost ground clearance. Carriage bolts go through the plate steel body armor and the rocker panel. They are attached with a 1/8” plate steel backing plate inside the body and bolted through. Additional support comes through integrating the roll cage mounts in the floor. A 2x2” 3/16” wall thickness square tube is welded to the rocker panel running from end to end providing superior support and that unique Black Widow Off-Road look.
These are hands down the most solid, well mounted, best constructed body mounted Jeep YJ sliders on the market today.
Retail pricing starts at $599.99 per set for these high quality rock sliders (taxes, shipping & Handling not included).
Precision CNC cuts and bends finished by hand with 100% American craftsmanship. Designed, constructed, and assembled proudly in the USA.
Black Widow Off-Road is currently accepting phone orders by calling toll free 1-888-85-WIDOW (94369).
Other Black Widow Off-Road products and patent-pending product concepts tailored to the 4X4 off-road after-market accessory industry are also available to preview on the Web site (www.blackwidowoffroad.com). Schranz notes that Black Widow plans to announce an entire catalogue of additional, original products proudly made in the USA for four-wheeling Jeeps, trucks, and SUVs.
“As an off-roader and consumer myself, I believe Black Widow can provide those added solutions that make driving anywhere only limited by the imagination,” he adds. “I want to create a better and more affordable way for consumers in this market to improve the safety, quality, and the appearance of their vehicles. The voice of the customer is the foundation of BWOR. I will measure my success by the positive feedback we receive from those buying, using and self-installing our off-road, after-market solutions.”
