Thumbs up The Truck Shop, Crossville Tn

I was in Tenn around Christmas and decided to make a trip over to see Jerry Brown at The Truck Shop in Crossville. He and his staff were all very nice, Jerry showed me all around his shops and answered all my questions and didn't seem to mind when I drooled on parts. He sold me some parts for cheap and even gave me a piece of trim I had asked about. Great southern hospitality. Don't tell my wife, but it was the highlight of my trip (and it was a good trip too). Thanks Jerry and the gang.

I`ve known Jerry for years and it`s true,he`s as nice a guy as you`ll ever meet.He won`t do anything 1/2 way and you can see it in all he does.

Re: The Truck Shop, Crossville Tn

When I did the majority of my restore - 95% of it came from Jerry. Excellent to deal with. He even got me a small letter (1967) GMC tailgate! Sorry 1967 guys, it's a 1971, but I like yours better. Hehe.

Re: The Truck Shop, Crossville Tn

And,collects Schwinn Sting Rays...
Who was that big boy that worked with him?He wore glasses,had a beard and redish hair?I want to say Clarence or Cletus.It`s been awhile,I just wondered if he was still around.
That Jerry`s a fool for details,I`ll give him that.(did I say that earlier?)

Re: The Truck Shop, Crossville Tn

They are great to deal with, I ordered some bolt kits, fender rubber, and brake lines a couple of months ago.... They called me back with the total, and it arrived about 3 days later.....

That is great!!! I will definately be a repeat customer.....

Re: The Truck Shop, Crossville Tn

Unfortunately, I think ďthe Truck Shop has closed its doors. I tried calling the numbers listed today, and all I got were ďnumber no longer in serviceĒ messages.
In the past, I went in to their shop a few times, and they were real good people to deal with.
I hope Iím wrong, because I now drive through Crossville about ever other month, and was actually planning a stop for next week. Bummer
