Slick Spot Farm and Truck Tire History

Slick Spot opened December 26th, 2011 at our new location 37624 Highway 385, just outside of Wray Colorado. It was a mess and after one year of unbelieveable expansion, its still a mess but we have it under control.

 

Six employees moved from the old location to the new facility, and of the six, four remain with the addition of ten more part-time and full-time. Our business has increased to over five times the old shop and we have added 5100 square feet to our facility. This includes our trailer rebuild and repair shop and a 2100 square foot parts facility featuring parts from Peterbuilt, Frieghtline and K-W, which bolsters our springs, berrings, and other parts we already carry.

 

Seeing the high demand and lack of availability in the area of Trailer Rebuilding we ventured into this area in the summer of 2012. While we already fixed brakes, frames, springs, equalizers, and made minor mechanical repairs, we now have the capability to, replace grain hoppers on trailers, subframes, and new 5th wheels. We can take off side panels, and replace stakes. We are currently completing our second belt trailer from mild steel to stainless. We have aquired welders to weld aluminum, and stainless steel. We can handle all your rebuild projects from grain trailers, to van boots, to bull racks.

 

In the truck repair side of the shop we now have four full-time diesel techs as well as a part-time aprentice. We have computer software to diagnose all truck engines including, Cat, Cummings, Mach, Volvo, and International. We also have all the tools to change seals and berings on all engines. We also have tools that make changing bushings on air ride trailers easier. We still feature and have gained more knowlege on fixing refrigerator units on Reefer trailers and have equipment to vac and ecuate freon and check for leaks. Auto Cave is another area we have expanded with our master technician Jim whom has the reputation of fixing things others can't fix. From air-conditioning to a total over haul Jim has the reputation of making everything his specialty.

 

Troy our tire tech has been a welcome addition. Having someone with the experience to go out a tackle both hard and easy changes as well as adding the new and improved tire truck has made things even better.

 

Tire sales have also boomed this year surpassing prior expectations by a great extent. We sell all kinds of tires and have even had inqueries about tracks for John Deer, IHC, and Cat Trailers.

 

This year we have a new slogan from "Dealing Dena" the tire lady!

"We will match or beat any bonafide quote on new tires or we will give you the tire!"
