Ontario, CA — Total Cost Involved Engineering (TCI) announces its 45th Anniversary Celebration. In 1974, Founder and President, Ed Moss, turned his passion into a successful Classic Car and Truck restoration business, which today has become the first place many 1st-Generation (1963-72) Chevrolet C10 and GMC K10 pickup enthusiasts look to for innovative products to improve the ride and handling characteristics of their Classic trucks.

It began with a clean sheet of paper approach to developing chassis and suspension components that would improve the factory offerings into a more solid foundation for performance, drivability and safety.  Today, that philosophy has evolved into state-of-the-art systems that smooth out the ride, and enhance the cornering and braking potential of the popular line of Chevrolet C10 and GMC K10 mid-size pickup trucks built from 1963-72.  Whether you’re a fan of a “spirited” daily-driver or a “g-force-inspired” high-performance Pro Touring enthusiast, or just in search of the perfect combination of a solid and comfortable ride for your tow vehicle or hauler, TCI has the precision components – from torque arm rear suspensions and Currie 9-inch rear axles to fully independent canyon-carving front suspension clips featuring coilover shocks, dropped spindles, disc brakes and tubular control arms – the company’s model-specific products are designed and built to help your C10 or K10 truck project meet and exceed the level of excitement and performance you expect.

“I’m so proud of our technical sales advisors, engineers, welders and machinists, many of whom have worked with us for 20 years or more…they truly are experts, and they know the importance of what quality engineering means to each customer they serve.” said Moss


Over its 45 years, TCI has perfected the fabrication processes and research and development techniques employed in their modernized, 32,000 square-foot facility, to create second-to-none products that provide thousands of satisfied customers and their projects with the most precise fitting and quality suspension and chassis components available in the market.  And they don’t rely on simply machining, welding or bolting together a part and putting it on the shelf; they are continually and successfully testing many of their products for drivability, safety and performance standards on challenging tracks and real-world roadways across the country.

“We made a promise at our founding: To partner with each customer to help them build the perfect ride, each time. Comfort, performance and safety is at the heart of every part we manufacture — always has been, always will be —that’s our promise to our customers, and to ourselves,” Moss explained.

Quality is “Job One,” and is taken very seriously by every craftsman and professional at TCI.  The company has earned numerous design and track performance accolades over the years, including the coveted “Manufacturer of the Year” Award from SEMA-SRMA. Which is why TCI is proud to offer the best Warranty in the classic car and truck restoration industry:  A 6 year-60,000-mile warranty on wear-and-tear items, plus a Lifetime Warranty on any part manufactured in-house. TCI strongly feels that quality doesn’t cost, it pays real dividends for all.


The company is held in high-esteem amongst its industry peers, partners and competitors alike.  “I installed my C10 complete package with ease—no surprises. And my truck feels amazing… a lot smoother when transitioning from one corner to the next… definitely more control and planted.” – Matt Kenner – 1968 Chevy C10
