A chain is as strong as its weakest link. If rephrased to be used appropriately for vehicles, the sentence would be altered to: A vehicle is as strong as its weakest component. Imagine having a high-powered, multi-purpose vehicle using diesel and providing a great output but a single part, let’s say, for example, the tyre is weak. What would happen to the vehicle then?
Well, let’s consider a scenario here. You are driving your 4x4 in the desert, and all of a sudden, a huge sound is produced followed by skidding of your vehicle before it comes to a full halt. Upon inspection, you realize that the air in the tyre leaked from a miniature hole produced during such a vigorous driving. A small hole brought your car to a complete stop. The same is the case with everything else. The strength of anything depends on the weakest part of it. Word of advice; make sure everything is top class and since we have considered you driving a 4x4, Ironman 4x4 provides top-class components for your 4x4.
We are going to review what Ironman 4x4 is, what it does, how does it do what it does, and what do you need to know about the company.
Introduction to Ironman 4x4:
The company well known for its suspensions, leaf and coil springs, Ironman 4x4, is an Australian based venture which designs products specifically for 4x4s. The products can be considered premium due to their costs but the value is all they are about. Despite the suspensions being around $1000, they are good enough to catch a viewer and any 4x4 fan’s eye and if he or she purchases it, they would surely not be disappointed.
The company produces all sorts of stuff for the 4x4s these days. It is one of the most popular 4x4 accessories companies in not only Australia but in other parts of the world too. Although the parts are manufactured in Australia, their chain is strong enough to deliver to other countries too.
Ironman 4x4 was originally established in 1958 in Melbourne as Jacob Spring Works. It was a manufacturing house for leaf and coil springs for all sorts of vehicles; cars, trucks, jeeps, 4x4s, etc. With the increase in popularity, the company soon began to mass-produce its products and eventually took a leap of faith by introducing newer products to their list. The owner realized that the modern vehicles were not supposed to carry really heavyweights with their current suspensions, so he decided to design something that would help cope with this problem. This ended up being one of the best ideas for the company, and JSW Parts or Ironman 4x4 gained recognition throughout the world.
Today, Ironman 4x4 still manufactures all sorts of parts but they have shifted their focus more towards 4x4s (as the company name suggests). As per the company’s official website, the vast continent of Australia serves as a perfect testing ground for their products. Not only does the company provides to the general public, but military purposes also require assistance from Ironman 4x4.
