KYB ‘4Trainer’ Training Vehicle Hits the Streets

The custom-built Toyota 4Runner will provide onsite education programs and access to the KYB video training series.

KYB announced it is taking its Video Training Series on the road with a custom-built Toyota 4Runner overlanding vehicle, in a move to continue its focus on education and training.

The KYB “4Trainer” will utilize an audio/video system and product displays for onsite education programs, as well as provide immediate access to the KYB video training series. The 4Trainer will showcase KYB products and it features the newly introduced KYB JAOS adjustable suspension lift kits. The vehicle will also be used to educate consumers on the need for increased performance when running larger wheels and tires, hauling, or towing.

The integrated KYB Video Training Series consists of a series of short videos and quizzes for Parts Pros and Service Technicians. Professionals will learn how critical shocks are to vehicle control and safety systems, how to determine if shocks are worn enough to recommend replacement, and techniques focused on increasing their ride control replacement business.

KYB says each Service Technician who completes the program will receive a KYB long sleeve t-shirt, and Parts Professionals completing the program will receive their choice of KYB hats. The interactive, self paced KYB Video Training Series can also be found at

A special 4Trainer feature on Truck U will air on December 4 on MotorTrendTV. The KYB 4Trainer will be making appearances throughout the U.S. and Canada. Automotive Professionals can contact their local KYB Sales Manager to request an appearance, the company says.
