    Truck of the Month“Here’s my 2011 Ford F-550 with a Chevron Renegade twin-line. It has a bunch of LED running lights as well as LED warning lights front and rear and cones to set up a safe scene. Additionally, it has plenty of rigging to recover even the heaviest vehicles from the toughest spots, dollies, a back up camera and tow bar adapters to make sure I can bring in even the worse wreck after I recover it.

    “Six pair of work lights light up even the darkest blizzard conditions and the tunnel box gives me room to carry all of my tools of the trade.”

    JJThis is JJ, a 14-year old lab that has been on 24-hr tow call since he was six weeks old.

    In 2012 JJ was attacked by coyotes and lost a foot due to the injuries, but that has not slowed him down. He loves to go so much his owner made a brace for his leg so he could get around and still make the tow calls. He’s always ready to go on a good tow.

    Our repeat customers and local law enforcement always want to know if JJ is in the truck when we arrive on the scene. Best buddy ever.
