Wilkins' Oklahoma Truck Supply, one of the largest big rig chrome accessory shops in the Plains States area, is owned by a father and son partnership, Clifford and Brett Wilkins. Opened in 1987, with two shelves of chrome and a lot of hard work, Wilkins' Oklahoma Truck Supply has grown to be one of the most extensive accessory shops around. With their love of vintage trucks and an appreciation of the over-the-road lifestyle, Clifford and Brett run a shop that caters to the wants and needs of today's truck driver. Besides carrying accessories such as chrome and semi truck bumpers they offer diesel maintenance and repair, and have a wrecker service available. When they can manage to squeeze a few spare hours out of their busy schedules, they enjoy restoring old trucks to a luster and shine that rivals the original models. These restorations "pieces" are often displayed on the lot, the most memorable projects is the 50-foot "sign" that draws the eye and admiration of passing motorists. Made from an actual semi truck raised on its nose and firmly cemented in place, this unusual advertisement has been featured in several magazines both here and abroad, and never fails to bring comments of awe and surprise.
Also playing a major role in the operation of the business are Clifford's wife, Dolores, and Brett's wife, Kimber. Kimber is in charge of ordering the many varieties of parts and big rig accessories, while Dolores keeps everything running smoothly in the office. Even Brett's daughter, Kyla, is part of the team. When she is not busy with her collegiate studies she is helping in the store with the many varied duties to be done. Kyla has also learned to operate most types of vehicles, and isn't afraid of getting the job done. Brett's son, Tanner, is often around, amazing everyone with his already impressive knowledge of trucks and truck parts, learned first-hand from their father and grandfather. Karen joined the team in 2007. Karen assists with all the duties that keep the store running smoothly. Karen is there daily to greet customers with a friendly smile and a helping hand. With a love of the business that spans three generations, it's easy to see why Wilkins' Oklahoma Truck Supply has become such a successful and lasting enterprise.
