Meet Dave & the team

Dave Kindig is, in a word, a Master. He’s the star of MotorTrend TV’s “Bitchin’ Rides”, and the founder and owner of Kindig-It Design in Salt Lake City. Auto fanatics from around the world come to Kindig-It for one-of-a-kind custom vehicle creations. Dave takes each client from start to finish through the design and fabrication stages, and the end results are rides unlike anything else on the road today. The amazing custom machines coming out of the Kindig-It shop make it easy to see why Dave’s got an extensive waiting list for his services: you don’t rush quality, and that’s what at the heart of every Kindig-It creation.

Since 1999, Kindig has set the industry standard by using state-of-the-art equipment and hiring only the best design and fabrication professionals. He’s one of the most recognized stars of both reality TV and the business world – and of course the world of custom vehicles:
