Twenty years ago we made our first BACKRACK. Since then we have seen competitors come and go trying to copy our design. While they might add a one size fits all product to complete their product line, they cant match our attention to detail that results in a custom fit, no drill application tailored to fit your truck. BACKRACK is our only product and all our energies are focused on offering you the best product possible. Drilling holes into the sheet metal of your new truck is against the male code of ethics. Like applying suntan lotion on another guys backits just wrong. It also costs you big money at the end of a lease so we design our install kits with clever bolts that dont require drilling. If however your truck doesnt have stake pockets we must break the code. Trucks come in different widths. Cabs come in different heights. One rack to fit all trucks might be convenient for the manufacturer but wont look so good on your truck. Our competitors try to take the easy way out by making a one size fits all deal at the expense of your trucks good looks. We however have taken the time to design our products for each and every truck. Use our Choose your Ride feature to get the right product for your truck. Oh yeah, one size fits all is another way of saying lets drill some holes in your truck. Twenty years ago we designed the BACKRACK. Twenty years later the same man still owns the company and still gets dirty in the shop on occasion. When a business owner is involved in the day to day operations of a business he is personally invested. The result is a quality product created by caring employees. Although our manufacturing processes are modern, our commitment to quality is old school.
About Chux Trux
Chux began as an idea back in 1990. At the time there were very few automotive accessory stores and mini trucks were very popular. I was a mini truck enthusiast. After working in the world of auto parts for most of my life and after that the cell phone business and part time pin-chaser in a bowling alley, I put together a business plan using books from the library, consulted with some guys I knew from a local wholesale automotive supplier and started going to banks for funding. I visited quite a few banks but after about 9 months, I was granted an SBA backed loan and started looking for buildings. After a long search I ended up at a small shop that sat way back off the road in Independence, Mo. on the east side of Kansas City. The building had been a Taylor Rental store (division of Stanley Tools) and Taylor had many years remaining on the lease even though they had closed the store. On June 1, 1991 Chux Trux opened for business. The first day I sold 1 bugshield. That’s all. The first month we totaled 12,000 in sales. Same the second month. There was one other employee at the time but he didn’t always show up for work. After a month went by, I let him go. For the next two months I sold and installed everything. The business was growing. In September, Shawn Shipers wandered in and we hit it off. I asked him if he needed a job and he said yes. He was from Pattonsburg, Mo. I had never heard of it. Today, we have grown to multiple locations with over 2 dozen employee’s, including a commercial division selling B2B including car dealers, contractors, municipalities and more.
