My love for everything off road started after I purchased my first truck. It was a 1986 Ford Ranger 2WD that eventually was replaced by a 1991 Ranger. I became even more enthralled after I got a job at a local tire store changing tires and doing modifications on my truck. In Oct 2000, I was invited by BF Goodrich to be on a pit crew for the Baja 2000 race. I changed tired, gassed up trophy trucks and performed various repairs to broken down buggies. After that experience my love for all facets of off roading only grew.
I Joined the United States Air Force on Feb 02 2002 in the wake of 9/11 and was stationed in Germany for 3 years. It was a great experience and I was able to do a large amount of traveling but never lost my love of trucks. I decided to get out of the Air Force and return to sunny Southern California where I could once again enjoy the sun, beaches, and mountainous terrain. I bought another Ford Ranger and took to the dirt. I had always been good mechanically and when I got a new job at a local BMW dealership I quickly picked up the skills to become a master mechanic. I then worked as a Master BMW mechanic for the next seven years. I enjoyed working on cars everyday but It wasn’t my true calling. Still yearning to be a part of the US military I joined the California Air National guard.
I bought my first Nissan Xterra in 2008 and immediately fell in love. I immersed myself in the Nissan off road community and started modding my X. After participation in the GONE Moab event in 2009 I decided that my truck needed a lot more work. I met my business partner, Raul, in 2009, he was selling Ford diesel performance parts through his online business, Stealth-automotive.com. After brainstorming with him about a new off road company that catered to the Nissan community, we set out to get our brainchild, Off Roar Performance Parts, off the ground. Unfortunately that plan would have to wait as I ended up getting deployed to Afghanistant with the 146 Channel Islands Air National Guard in 2011 and put my business plans on hold. After my return from Afghanistan I was chomping at the bit to full-fill my dream of opening up my own off road performance company. Jan 2012 Off Road Performance Parts came to fruition.
We are dedicated to giving unsurpassed customer service and the best off road products to the off road community. We work hard to become the best resource for all things Nissan off road. It has been a long journey to get to this point but it has been worth it. We are a new company and there is still a lot of work to do but I look forward to helping my fellow off roaders do what they love!
