What We Do

At O.J. Watson

We’re truck people. We exist because not every truck right off the line works for all the applications a work truck is meant to perform. We outfit your truck with quality OEM and aftermarket parts to build just about anything you can dream—custom and complex.

We are the architects of your mobile workplace. We ask the underlying questions: where you park on the job, how you move around the vehicle, what tools you access from the cab and the frequency. Then we produce a solution that will increase your productivity. Whether your challenges are accessing hard to reach elevations or protecting your tools and materials from theft or weather, O.J. Watson’s pros build the truck you need.

Work Trucks, fundamental to America’s economy

Work trucks are an integral part of America’s economic condition. If you work hard for your money driving a work truck you know that time equals money. At O.J. Watson Equipment, we understand that you have options when purchasing a work truck. It’s one of the reasons we’re so thankful to have the great number of repeat customers we do.

Your work truck is your office. When you’re on the job site all day, you may get a desire for a hot cup of coffee or want to warm up your lunch in a microwave. We install accessories that make your day more convenient.

While we can build any truck you dream up, we also bring to the table our sincere recommendations to be included in your truck project. Those accessories or amenities are what make you more focused while you work. More focus equals better productivity.






Every minute wasted when your truck is out of commission is an expense. We help you minimize your expenses for repairs by building your truck right the first time. We respect your deadlines and take great care to keep you in the know about your project status. We make sure your work truck runs right from the start.

We build work horse trucks and we service them too. That’s one of the great differentiators between our work and other vendors. O.J. Watson is your partner for life.

If you can imagine it, O.J. Watson can build it

REPEAT CUSTOMERS SAY IT BEST
We have a long, long list of repeat customers—from single driver shops to big business with fleets of work trucks. They come back to us because we deliver. New customers are no exception!

Testimonials

Work trucks at altitude must be road-worthy across temperature swings and snow accumulation. We cover that too

With only 30-40 overcast days a year, Colorado has 300 days of partial sunshine. On the flip side, this state has its snowmageddons and avalanches with snowfall in the triple digits annually in Crested Butte and Vail while less than 20" falls in Grand Junction. Elevation comed with the territory. The Arikaree River in Yuma County has the lowest altitude at 3,315 feet above sea level. Mount Elbert tops out at 14,440 feet. We'll get you ready to hit the road.

You, the end-user, is what matters. Your truck is only productive when it's working. O.J. Watson has your back

You've invested in your business when you bought a top-of-line truck. Now you need it to work. The trucks we build at O.J. Watson are revenue-producing machines—from custom paint, tool boxes and nerf bars to unique wholesale truck builds designed from the ground up. Fierce made fancy. Our goal is your satisfaction. And more than that, we want you to experience measurable ROI.

We know that each of our customers has specific needs for their specific jobs. We will work with you to build the perfect job for your application.
