Patterson Truck Parts was founded by Ricky Patterson Sr. in 1974. In 2005, his son Ricky took over the business, which is still going strong after 40 years. In 2013, Patterson remodeled and expanded to double its parts department and shop area. The shop now includes 7 bays, overhead crane, truck lift, and a computer alignment machine.
Patterson works on heavy duty diesel trucks, trailers and heavy equipment. We have 4 service trucks for 24-hour roadside service. We offer bumper to bumper service and repairs, computer diagnostics, air conditioning repair, welding, tire repair, and sales. Patterson sells a variety of parts and tools for heavy duty trucks, trailers, and heavy equipment. With Patterson's expansion, we are equipped with a customer waiting room with television and coffee.

They make Parker hydraulic hoses and now offer heavy duty tools and jacks such as sockets up to 4.5 inches, wrenches up to 2 inches, hydraulic jacks, hydraulic rams, and air tools up to 1-inch drive.
