In 1989 Chris Bashall, disillusioned by the current after market service and accessories available to off-roaders decided to do something about it. His research led to products being sourced from all over the world in pursuit of the ultimate 4x4 products. Surrey Off-Road are main agents for many superior products including brand names such as; WARN, ARB, GKN, Old Man Emu, Teraflex, BF Goodrich, and General Tire, to name a few. We also have our own design and manufacturing facility in house and produce our own range of equipment under the Rokraider® name. Selected customers and ourselves test all of the products sold by us over some of the toughest terrain in the world before we sell them. Any relevant information is shared with the manufacturers to help them maintain the quality of their products.
Surrey Off-Road Specialists limited started out in a small industrial unit in Cranleigh, Surrey. The workforce consisted of Chris, Pip (his mum) and the dog. His attention to detail and quality combined with eagerness to undertake oddball projects meant that the customer demands soon outstripped the small company's facilities. Within a year the Company doubled in size, staff and units and continued to expand. As luck would have it, the premises next door to Dunsfold Land Rovers (Father and Brothers business) came up for sale and here we are.
These days we have established ourselves Internationally and have customers all over the world. We work on most makes of 4x4 and have carried out design work for the Ministry of Defence, Land Rover (military and Government Division), Daimler-Chrysler and Mercedes-Benz. We have designed and built the original "Rubicon Jeeps" for Chrysler Jeep UK. (These predate the production Rubicons currently manufactured by Daimler-Chrysler). We also assist other Companies with Design, Research and Development work (mostly military) and prepare and design specialist equipment for various factory off road teams.
We prepare long range rally and expedition vehicles, Raide vehicles and also do total chassis up rebuilds and customs.
Don’t be put off by the stuff listed above, we are also quite happy to service and repair the everyday vehicles as well. We specialize in Jeeps and Toyotas, but are quite happy to work on most of the other makes as well. We particularly enjoy the older stuff, when they were built to last!
We enjoy a challenge and have a broad range of exceptional talent within the workforce. If you have an ambitious project, you would like to discuss or just want a simple service for your 4x4, please feel free to call.
