Shop Tour by Race Dezert
Race Dezert was granted full access to our facility to share on their large off road community platform, race-dezert.com. Here's what they had to say...
If you’ve ever been in the market for off-road accessories for a newer half ton truck then you’ve probably came across Dirt King Fabrication. They do everything from manufacturing to retail sales to installing products at their facility in San Diego CA. Dirt King primarily manufactures performance suspension systems commonly referred to as mid travel and long travel. Brothers Dustin and Nick Weaklem started the company out of a garage in 2008. In the beginning they mainly installed lift kits and did custom fabrication but what they found to be most successful was manufacturing niche products that the rest of the industry ignored. When they transitioned from the garage to a shop they started with subleasing 500 sq ft and little by little they took over the entire 15,000 sq ft building that they’re in today.
Dirt King Fabrication does nearly all their manufacturing in house. Everything from engineering, laser cutting, plate forming, machining, welding, assembly, and packaging. They have control of every step throughout production allowing them to consistently release quality products. It also helps that their team is made up of motorsport enthusiasts that take pride in what they do.
Not only do they manufacture their products but they also do installs. Anyone can book an appointment with them for services ranging from wheels and tires install to a complete custom built off road truck. Their most common upgrades are upper control arms, 2.5” shocks, wheels, and tires. This will lift or level the vehicle while improving it’s off road handling and overall appearance.
