Our Parts Department

The Brands we Sell

Why do we sell the brands that we sell? Well, here at Fat Lad 4×4, we only supply and fit the best products on the market.  The vehicles prepared by us are all about function, reliability and longevity. The parts we fit need to work, without fail when they are called upon.

If you want low priced, low value products then there are literally hundreds and hundreds of other companies out there that are happy to sell you inferior parts.  If you want to pay £200 for a 2″ lift that will become a 0″ lift within 18 months. Or buy a £400 winch that will work 2 or 3 times then the motors fails, just as you need to winch yourself out? That’s money just thrown away. Low price yes, but at a HIGH cost in the long run. The £200 suspension kit is no good after 18 months, that’s cost you just over £11 a month . You need to buy it again and pay for it fitting….Again.

Fit an Old Man Emu suspension kit, and it lasts you 10 years, performs way better than the cheaper kit, and works out at less than £5 a month. High price? Yes, but LOW COST in the long run, and you have the pleasure of driving a vehicle with superior suspension!

As you would expect, all our products come with market leading warranty and after sales.

How to Buy

Fat Lad 4×4 does not sell on-line. Why? Well, simply because there is so much choice with the brands we sell. This is what makes our products unique. You can have the exact product that fits your needs without compromise. What this also means is that, because of this overwhelming choice of options, the correct parts selection can become confusing. The last thing we want you to do is buy an unsuitable product. This is the reason why we prefer for you to speak to us first.

You can then use our knowledge, expertise and experience to get the right products to fit your exact needs. Also remembering the fact we use the products we sell in the real world, we don’t just know the product range, we know how the products work in the field. Call us on 0113 2536388.
