We're experts in customization
We will work closely with you to achieve your needs on your truck.

How a truck is set up has a direct effect on driver performance. We will work closely with your drivers to ensure that all components are set up to suit their needs. We understand that the cab of the truck is the driver's home-away-from-home for half the day and ease of use can make the difference between a good day and a bad one.
We build trucks that we'd want to use ourselves
Quality of fit and finish
We don't just apply a top coat to your truck, we use a multi-step process before the final color is applied to ensure that the final product will look good and last for years. We prep and clean everything to ensure adhesion, sand down the entire unit to clean up rough edges and scruff up the primed surface, re-prime the entire unit and use a high-quality two-part urethane top coat for gloss and protection. If a sealer is needed on your project it is applied as well. We will apply top coat in the colors you need to fit your company image. This process takes time but will result in a superior longer lasting finish.
We tend to over-build our trucks because we know that this equipment is a massive long-term investment and that down-time can be super costly costing you money, lost time and potentially lost customers. Extra mounting plates, extra steel thickness, high tensile fasteners, extra welds extra gussets are our motto.
As with most projects the smallest details are most likely the most important long-term details. Proper securement and routing of wiring, proper hydraulic hose securement and routing, tank and toolbox placement are all part of what we focus on here to ensure that your truck stays on the route. An inch here, an inch there can make the difference in quality and usability.
