Mission & Vision
Trinity Motorsports is driven by three core values: Service, Integrity, and Craftsmanship. We are passionate about custom cars and trucks and we are dedicated to treating the car enthusiasts of Pooler, Savannah, and the Effingham communities with unequaled customer service. It is our mission to turn your vision of a custom car or truck into a reality while continually exceeding your expectations. Custom—it’s what we do, specializing in Trucks, Off-road, & Performance.
Our 1,000 sqft showroom features a full 3-D wheel wall with the latest styles and best brands, lighting upgrade displays, performance parts showcase complete with fully assembled LS engine, dozens of display parts, 65-inch HDTV to show you how we can transform your ride, and customer lounge complete with complimentary gourmet coffee, water/sodas, HDTV with Blu-Ray player, more than 25 magazine brands, and free Wi-Fi. Also on display in our showroom are the many magazine feature articles and covers we’ve been fortunate enough to be a part of over the last 11 years. You’ll find our showroom to be different than any other in the area, as we want you to feel comfortable and enjoy your experience while working with us. We built our shop around you, so feel free to stop in and see how we can help you achieve your custom goals.
Performing all of our installations in the same facility as our showroom, we work in a 3,600 sqft, two bay shop complete with epoxy-coated floors for a cleaner working environment, two Challenger 10,000-pound 2-post asymmetric lifts, one Challenger 4-post extended alignment rack, and trio of top-notch Hunter machines, including HawkEye Elite alignment equipment, Road Force GSP9700 touch-screen balancer, and TC3900 center-mount touchless tire mount. We also have a complete fabrication area with welder, plasma cutter, drill press, hydraulic press, chop saw, band saw, and full complement of Wurth hardware. In addition, we have a 35-ft wall of custom truck wheels and performance tires in stock, as well as the latest in tire TPMS tools, computer scanners, and specialty tools to work on even the most difficult applications. Also located in our shop is a NOS nitrous station with digital scale to ensure your bottle leaves as full as it can be.
What we do?
At Trinity Motorsports we don’t conform to traditional opinions of what a custom truck or car is. Rather, we listen to you, the custom truck and car owner to hear exactly what you want. We’ll then make detailed suggestions on part choices, combinations of parts to make the process quick and easy, and get you the best price that fits your budget. We believe good customer service is selling quality parts that actually work—a novel idea in the aftermarket world. We’ll leave the junk parts for the internet. Our attention to detail includes using state-of-the-art Hunter Engineering equipment to mount your custom wheels, balance your performance tires, and align your new suspension. You can rest assured that when your car or truck rolls out of our shop, it leaves as unique as you desire it to be and it leaves right—every time. We have a fully-equipped shop so we can install everything we sell on-site. No job is too big or too small for our highly-trained technicians.

Trinity is lead by two life-long gearheads—Dan Ward and Allan Settles. The duo cut their teeth selling auto parts to Pooler, Bloomingdale, and Guyton residents from 1996 to 2005. During that time, we saw a large void in local mechanic shops who were knowledgeable and qualified to customize trucks and performance cars. Fast-forward to 2015, and we present Trinity Motorsports—a shop designed to meet the needs of local residents looking to add their own style and personality to their ride.
After living in Pooler for 23 years, Dan Ward spent 11 years living in Southern California working for Truckin magazine, the World’s Leading Truck Publication. Promoted to Editor-in-Chief in 2008, Dan traveled the country looking for the best trucks showcasing the latest in custom truck trends. During his tenure, Dan visited with local SoCal and national shops to establish his idea of a true custom truck shop—one where the customer would be paramount, craftsmanship would be first-rate, and the surroundings would be both welcoming and unlike anything else Georgia has ever seen. An accomplished designer and builder in his own right, Dan and his team have partnered with Dodge, Ford, and GM to build show trucks for the annual SEMA show in Las Vegas and has multiple cover truck builds under his belt. Dan is an alumni of Savannah Christian Prep School and Armstrong Atlantic State University and is currently raising his two young boys in Pooler with his wife of six years.
Allan Settles was raised in Guyton and now works for a leading aerospace company, having earned a Mechanical Engineering degree from Georgia Tech—all while building and racing one of the fastest street Mustangs in the area. Performing nearly all of the work himself, that very Mustang was featured on the cover of a national Ford magazine. His daily driver, a lowered and supercharged Tahoe, is a great example of his custom truck passion. Clean styling with a European flair, Allan’s Tahoe stands out in the Chatham and Effingham area. His heavily-modified Lightning is also an under-the-radar custom with a laundry list of upgrades and performance goodies. A master fabricator with an engineer’s mind always at the forefront, Allan understands that if a part doesn’t currently exist, he can design and build it himself. If it’s loud and fast, Allan most likely knows how to make it louder and faster. Allan is an alumni of South Effingham High School and Georgia Tech and is currently raising his daughter in Guyton with his wife of nine years.
Trinity Motorsports is a locally family-owned business dedicated to Southeast Georgia residents. We were born here, grew up here, and understand the importance of taking care of our own. We enjoy getting to know our fellow car and truck enthusiasts and believe in buying local and supporting small businesses. Trinity Motorsports is committed to honoring the good Lord in all we do by operating the company in a manner consistent with biblical principles. The customer is our most valuable asset and we will treat you with respect, dignity, and constant appreciation. Both Dan and Allan attend Compassion Christian Church.
