Hanson began in
the metal fabrication trade in 1974, used for custom/prototype
projects and assemblies. That was back when kits and
accessories for modifying vehicles were not very
prominent. For motors and transmissions there was Advanced
Adapters, who are now the premier swap house in the US.
These days motors
and trannys are just a small part of a custom, reliable and
street worthy trail rig.
In 1985 Hanson
Enterprise was founded, still working on many projects other
than off-road vehicles. There were conveyor structures,
architectural railing, Shelby Mustang replicas, boat and auto
transport trailers, and 40 ft. semi flat beds to name a

and metal repair work as well.

must be large enough to stand on. Brush guards, gun racks and
cargo racks were also needed. Tow bars and lights were also

bumpers were also a big request. Outdoorsmen began this
trend as well. Today, a mix between off-road use and daily
commuting is required A minor fender-bender on a

||Along the way, the Jeepers Jamboree was found to
be the ultimate test for man and machine. Negotiating this
trail required bumpers with good approach and departure
angles. This, combined with the size of the bumper the
hunters needed led to the Rubicon Series bumpers.
The Rubicon Front
Bumper was patented in August 1995. This shape set the
pace for future product design. The Rear Bumper also has
the angled bottom forms, and with its 60" length, provides
excellent rear corner protection.
Rocker guards had
to have this angle form as well. After all, if it works
for the front and rear, why not the sides? The combination
turned into a nice matched look all around the
During all this
product development, Hanson has assisted other off-road
businesses in development of their own products. We
believe its better to have a good working relationship with
everyone in the industry, than not to.
