Bent and Twisted will now be Tri Alliance Four wheel Drive

Thats right guys! the only thing changing is my location to a 18 bay shop plus full alignment ect.. I was given the chance to run the sales end for Tri Alliance Automotive Group. There are 4 buisnesses in the INC right now and they want to add a Four Wheel Drive Service to the lineup.. Well I got the Call and After all the meetings I am now a member of the Group and will be running Tri Alliance Four Wheel Drive. We will doing all of the same things as before in sales but backing off the FULL Frame up projects and complicated SAS swaps... We will be selling all of the same products as before including mail order. Phone number is the same but our new facility is amazing... I will still do everything I can to help with raffles and give aways ect.. It will just be under Tri Alliance Four Wheel Drive... Thankyou to all the PBB members who have supported Bent and Twisted and I hope you will give me a call at my new location.

I can finally focus on selling parts and phone tech and have a full team of awsome people backing me up to do the service, fab work and we even have a Director of Marketing! I will still be on the board all the time so all my long time PBB homies can still see me on the trail ect..

THANK YOU PBB!!!

Mike Ladd Soon to be Head of Tri Allaince Four Wheel Drive in Chico Ca

Still in Chico and actually if you know where the current shop is... you drive by the new shop on your way there. It's on the corner of Park and Meyers.

I love my old name but guys Ill be real with ya... i lost the 40 year old deer hunter that just wants a winch for his rig and a bolt on bumper ect... We are going after the easier stuff with a more marketable name.. Bent and Twisted is a little to (extreme) I know thats sounds gay but we are chasing a more diverse rabbit at Tri Alliance and not so much the hard core only group. So marketing wise its a better move and Ties in the INC that the other 4 buisnesses are in... Anyway it comes down to the numbers and the name change along with the killer location its the right move..

I am also typing on my new PC at my New counter in my new showroom we are still putting together... I get to look through a wall of glass at the new four wheel drive facility .... SICK!

We understand the change but the new name still sucks. 'Tri Alliance' sounds like something from Battlestar Galactica. Maybe 'Bent & Twisted' does sound a bit extreme but that's what I thought you were. You must be gettin old. Work on that name, eh...

Oh, and best of luck in your new adventure.
