T-Rex Grilles: An American Original

By John M. Arnaud

Southern California–based T-Rex Grilles might be a relative newcomer to Total Truck Centers, but the company has been pumping out cutting-edge grille designs for nearly two decades. With a variety of series to choose from—X-Metal, Torch LED, Graphic, and Billet, to name a few—T-Rex has a style to fit your aesthetic.

Last week Total Truck Centers had T-Rex National Sales Manager Tom Ameduri in the office to share ideas, swap stories, and build a more effective partnership. Tom learned about all the programs we’ve put together to support local jobbers, and we discovered a few things as well. Like when T-Rex says its products are made in America, they really mean it: everything, from materials and labor to manufacturing and shipping boxes, originates domestically. The company is also ramping up production with a faster, more efficient laser cutter.

We love having these meetings because they give us the chance to connect people with people, from warehouse distributors and manufacturers to all of us here at headquarters and our nationwide network of aftermarket jobbers. Thanks for coming out to see us, Tom: without the support of manufacturers like T-Rex, our program wouldn’t be possible!

Getting BAK to Business

By John M. Arnaud

All right, I couldn’t help myself with that headline. My failed attempt at cleverness aside, there probably aren’t many such phrases that VP of Sales Ryan Herman and Director of Sales – East Chris Fleeman from BAK Industries haven’t heard. When they dropped in to see us last week for a vendor strategy meeting, however, we hoped to share some new information they’d find of interest. Turns out they had some to offer as well.

With ramped-up manufacturing to meet increasing demand, a reinvigorated customer service team, and fantastic truck covers on the rise, BAK Industries is one to watch in the tonneau segment. In addition to taking in our standard partnership briefing, the BAK team stayed on an extra day to help us shoot some installation video for their Revolver X2 cover. The below photo with Chris and In the Garage host Stephen Fillers is a sneak peek of some of the footage. Stay tuned to our Total Truck Centers YouTube channel for the full release!

In the Garage with UnderCover

By John M. Arnaud

UnderCover, a leader in the truck tonneau industry, spent a couple of days with us this week brainstorming marketing plans and shooting some exclusive videos we’re looking forward to sharing with you soon.
