Why Choose Marlin Crawler
« on: Jun 01, 2009, 03:46:29 PM »
(from http://www.marlincrawler.com/news/2009/jun/awards-and-acknowledgements)

When you order from Marlin Crawler, Inc., you aren't just buying the strongest and longest lasting products on the market. You are buying a piece of heritage and prestige unparalleled in the Rock Crawling industry.

Early in 1984, Marlin became a California Association of 4WD (CAL4WD) member as well as a Toyota Land Cruiser Association (TLCA) member. Twenty-five years strong, Marlin has amassed arguably the largest reputation in Toyota Rock Crawling today, and it came through many, many drops of sweat and blood and sleepless nights all for the advancement of the hobby he holds so dear... Toyota Rock Crawling!

With such an outstanding reputation, it is no wonder why Marlin Crawler products are far superior and better engineered in such a way that they easily out-perform, out-last, and surpass all other products.

If you can't decide where to order from for any reason, choose the company who gives back the most to the Toyota 4WD community... choose the only company who made it possible for Toyota trucks to do what they are capable of doing today... choose the only company based on a 25 year proven track record... choose the most decorated company with the most advanced products... choose the father of Rock Crawling... choose Marlin Crawler!
