Have you ever wondered how cool it would be if you could get just about anything you needed for your mini-truck from one place that's completely owned and operated by mini-truckers just like you and me? Well, you no longer have to wonder, because Jason Thorbecke and his two brothers, Adam and Luke, have slowly worked their way up the ladder to become the premier mini-truck operation known as Suicidedoors.com. Jason's mission statement - "My mission here is to supply fellow mini-truckers with the goods to modify their rides at an affordable price, while supplying valuable install/how-to information to make things go as easily as possible. I am here to help." - makes it very clear why they offer some of the best customer service in the industry.
Priding themselves on building their parts in-house to keep the quality high and the prices low, Suicidedoors.com is here to stay. Jason has been working on minis since the early '90s, and he quickly opened up shop after his first tech article in Mini Truckin' in '01. Jason soldiered on all by himself for almost a year, and after popular demand increased the amount of orders for quality suspension components, he then approached his brother Adam, who was building custom semi trucks in Seattle, Washington, and offered him a full partnership if he were to drop everything he was doing in Seattle and come to Indiana to keep the business booming. Adam accepted. After only a month they needed a third body, so they forced their little brother Luke into working with them by employing the Big Bro Noogie Submission Hold. After a few minutes of torture, Luke agreed to come on board.
A few years later, and Suicidedoors.com has grown to a total of 17 employees, putting out hundreds of orders a day. And just think that it all started because one mini-trucker, Jason Thorbecke, was tired of crappy customer service and mediocre parts, so he decided to do something about it. Check out what this awesome mini-truckin' family has to offer. You won't be disappointed.
