StreetWires, the inventor of premium power distribution products
for vehicular use, was chosen as an aftermarket upgrade for
the "Suburban Gorilla Project" on Xtreme 4X4 which aired for the
first time Sunday, March 18th. This episode aired again on
Spike TV on Saturday, March 24th at 1:00pm EST/PST.
The "Suburban Gorilla Project" consists of a Suburban chassis that
was stripped and restored to be the structure for a Banks
Engineering twin turbo diesel engine and aftermarket fiberglass
Hummer H1 body to create the "ultimate" tow vehicle. The idea was to
create a vehicle that was cool enough to travel in to and from the
trails but powerful and versatile enough to tow a custom made
trailer with a rock crawler on it and use it to pull disabled
vehicles off the trail if necessary. The entertainment while
traveling was solved by adding a complete MTX system consisting of
TX6001 separates in all four doors, TC8001 amp, TC6004 amp, and two
10" Thunder5500 subwoofers.
On the episode that aired last Sunday and will air again this
Saturday, Ian Johnson, one of the hosts of Xtreme 4X4, explains that
the 6 foot cables that are shipped with the winch that he had
installed just wouldn't cut it especially since the battery was
mounted over twenty feet away from the winch. In order to solve this
problem, he turned to StreetWires 1/0 AWG cable which contains OFC
(Oxygen Free Copper) which will resist corrosion thus maintaining
maximum current flow throughout its life. The wire also contains
high strand count which ensures maximum current flow and minimal
voltage drop in the wire.
This type of exposure for the StreetWires brand is something that is
necessary to educate consumers on what makes great wire and
automotive electrical accessories. Far too often people buy high
performance electrical components such as car audio amplifiers,
winches, auxiliary lighting, etc... but they do not supply these
components with the electrical power they need to perform at their
optimum level. By using StreetWires electrical accessories, the
investment in high performance components is maximized because the
components aren't starved for power. The Suburban Gorilla also use
s StreetWires battery terminals which can be seen on the episode
with multiple runs of StreetWires 1/0 AWG power and ground cables
attached to the dual battery setup.
