Product Testing Confirmed Successful!

Addictive Desert Designs was fortunate to be invited to this year's Trail of Missions trip hosted by Desert Assassins. The trip was a week-long excursion covering 1600 miles of tough Baja terrain, which started in Tecate and ended in Cabo. Some of the terrain along the way included previous Baja 1000 race course sections and other terrain that most would consider too rough to drive on. Along the way we visited various Missions which included San Ignacio, San Javier, San Borja, and Loretto. We also visited The Rancho Santa Marta Orphanage and gave donations to the children there.


With the release of our new Lower Control Arm and Spindle just before the trip, we decided what better way to put it to the test then to drive sections of previous Baja 1000 courses making our products Baja Tested and Baja Proven. The new ADD Spindle is the perfect upgrade for your Raptor or F-150 Raptor conversion. One of the many unique features that this specific spindle offers is the integrated progressive turn stop, which ensures matched factory turning radius without having to limit or modify any of the stock components to operate safely. This spindle was rigorously tested ensuring smooth operation, optimal strength, as well as eliminating any possibility of crashing between components.

In addition, our new Lower Control Arm will work with a stock shock or aftermarket shock and the arm can work with a stock spindle or can be upgraded to our new ADD Spindle. It is made using 3/16" steel plate, Race Quality Bushings and Stainless Steel Spacers making it the strongest Lower Control Arm on the market. The engineering team at ADD spent a great deal of time perfecting the geometry that was needed to make the best optimized product for your off-road adventure and racing needs.


We put our new suspension products into the toughest elements known to man to ensure they would endure the torture and they all passed with flying colors. We are ecstatic with the outcome and for more information on the new lower control arm or spindle, contact us or click here.

Special thanks to Cameron Steele, Desert Assassins and everyone else that made this trip an epic adventure. We can't wait for next year!
