Co-Founder Dennis Overholser Acquires Ownership of Painless Performance Products

Lately, it seems like all you ever hear is one giant conglomerate buying up another group of performance brands. Thankfully, we’ve got some really great news coming from the world of performance aftermarket auto wiring: Painless Performance Products’ co-founder Dennis Overholser recently secured ownership of the company. Under Overholser’s direction, Painless skyrocketed to prominence in the 1990s, and has remained a mainstay of the performance aftermarket until today.

We at Mopar Connection Magazine have enjoyed working closely with Overholser and the Painless team while our 1969 Dodge Charger project car “Brazen” underwent a complete rewiring during 2020 and much of 2021 (see video below). With this experience, we can firmly state that Painless Performance Products is in the best hands possible. Expect to see some impressive new things from Painless for the Mopar market as well as other applications. Oh yes, and Painless is all American made in Texas.

Here’s the original press release:
