Larry H. Miller Group Acquires Proffitt’s Cruisers

Company to expand to Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele , Utah

SALT LAKE CITY (October 14, 2010) – CEO of the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies (LHM Group), Greg Miller , announced today that the company has acquired Proffitt’s Cruisers of Austin, Colorado.  Proffitt’s Cruisers has been restoring and building custom Toyota Land Cruisers for more than 12 years. The LHM Group plans to continue operations in Austin , Colorado , and will open a new headquarters facility at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele , Utah .

“Land Cruisers have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember,” said Greg Miller . “I have enjoyed my relationship with Jeremiah Proffitt as a friend and fellow Cruiser enthusiast. Having had Proffitt’s build and modify several of my personal Land Cruisers I am familiar with the premium quality of their work as well as their excellent customer service. I am excited to welcome Proffitt’s Cruisers to the Miller family of businesses.”

The company plans to expand the operation by offering a wide array of products and services including OEM, aftermarket and custom parts. They will also manufacture custom parts such as suspension components, bumpers and conversion kits, and make them available for retail customers. Many other exciting ideas are in the works.

“When Greg Miller approached me about joining forces, I knew it would only result in success,” said Jeremiah Proffitt. “I am excited for the opportunity to be a part of a legendary group of companies with both a long history and future in the automotive industry. Furthermore, I am looking forward to developing our new location at Miller Motorsports Park , a truly world-class facility for both on- and off-road racing.”

Miller and Proffitt also plan to open a Land Cruiser museum at Miller Motorsports Park by the end of this year. The museum will house Toyota Land Cruisers from Miller’s and Proffitt’s personal collections as well as “Guest Land Cruisers” from other collectors. Toyota Land Cruisers dating back to 1959 will be included with models ranging from Toyota ’s earliest Land Cruiser, the FJ25, to modern exotic Land Cruisers from all over the world.

The Utah location is scheduled to be operational in early December, 2010. For more information on Proffitt’s Cruisers, please visit http://www.proffittscruisers.com.

    This is great news. I worked with Proffitts a couple of years a go, on a spring over, power steering, and V8 conversion on my FJ40. They helped me every step of the way answering many questions. Congratulations to Jeremiah and his crew and the Miller Family!

    Go Jazz!

    Interesting news. I had heard about it through the Rising Sun grapevine several weeks ago. I have known Jeremiah for many years through his and his staff’s involvement in Cruise Moab. A lot of Rising Sun members have had Jeremiah’s shop work on or build their cruisers, and only is his reputation impeccable, but he’s a hell of a nice guy. I wish him continued success!

    Wow great news! Jeremiah has been great to talk with as I purchased a couple parts from him on my FJ40 rebuild. Hope the museum will be in Co! I want to visit when it opens! Also very interested in seeking info on the LC Pickup.

    ????? I bought 2 ford trucks from Miller in 2006. Wasn’t the best experience. But then again I wasn’t from “Utah” Good Luck.
