With over 50 years of experience So-Cal Truck Bodies has been dedicated to serving its customers with a professional and cooperative approach that is unsurpassed. Jim Peterson, formerly Peterson Equipment Systems, started his career as a diesel mechanic, working on the trucks he now builds. In 1996, a close friend on Jim’s, died leaving a truck building business that was going to close if someone didn’t take it over. Jim took a chance and took over the 16,000 square foot facility in Fontana and started Peterson Equipment Systems Inc..
In the beginning, Jim was installing dump bodies and roll-off units while continuing to do mechanical on all types of trucks including water trucks. In 1997, Peterson Equipment Systems began building their own water trucks. These days Jim and his highly experienced employees build custom water and dump trucks for the construction industry, entertainment industry, municipalities and cities, forestry and fire-fighting industries and for dealer distribution.
