Gas Pedal Industries

Anybody ever hear of these guys either? I believe they're in north west Houston? Do they build custom parts or just order from manufactures?

Never tried them (GPI), or KOKE, did make the mistake of going to CC Plus ONE time.

I work in Deer Park and live in Conroe. There are some good shops in Pasadena and some good ones in Baytown like Pile Brothers for differentials and gearing.

Mail order most stuff and install myself.

I wish there was a good shop near Conroe, I just haven't found one yet.

Yea i went by CC about a week ago. When he told me he only sells Smittybilt i asked of any other places in the area and left. Yea i'm going to start just ordering stuff online since i can do most stuff myself. I went by the Texas Truck Works a few days ago but i won't be going back there. Does anybody in the area do anything? I just moved down here and would like to get out sometime.

Pretty much need to go south of the beltway to find good places. I'm fairly new to four wheel off roading, but used to mess with drag racing cars and so on. I do know there are quite a few shops in Harris county some of which are professional grade fab shops. No experience with any of them. I Used Pyle Brothers (281-421-5878) in Baytown for extensive axle and gear work for racing and so does most everybody who is serious in that area. They can custom cut weld reinforce anything for diferentials and axles, narrowing and lengthening. They do very precise work. I priced air locker and gear installation with them and I will say they are not the cheapest in town but truly are the best.

Never thought of it but they may be able to recommend shops for other work as well... there again thats South of us by an hour. good luck

Yea ill probably just stick to ordering stuff online since i know what are good brands and what to stay away from. Do you know if anybody goes out at all around here? I know there are a few of us around here now but not sure where any good places are.

My only experience close by has been at General Sams in Huntsville. It is a place I would recommend and I will definitely be going back. Its a combination of smaller hills, woods, and depending on the weather lots of Mud. We are not big on mud so we went around most of the deeper stuff.

Would be interested in getting some folks together and going as a group, we have limited experience so still on the learning curve. Their rates are reasonable (I think) and if not mistaken they have about 700 acres to explore.

I work in Huntsville so i may check it out. Thanks.

Wait so they charge to go in there? Yea its always good to go with somebody else if you dont have a winch but sometimes even a winch can't save you. I'd be up for going out with a few people to see whats out there.
