The Rat started in 1975 when the head Rat and lifelong 4x4 aficionado Mike Furrier decided he wanted more out of life than just selling tires in the family tire business. The first load of 4x4 products actually came from Dick Cepek who was a friend of the Furrier family from the tire business. Desert Rat Off Road Centers began in the showroom of one of the Jack Furrier Tire and Auto stores in Tucson, the quickly expanding business then moved into larger facilities to accommodate the mail-order business.
