Stampede Ox Bodies History

It's not pretty out there. Sweltering heat, brutal roads, and heavy payloads that can send a rig to the graveyard in no time... and this is on a good day. You either make it or you don't. Ox didn't earn its reputation of rugged reliability by sitting behind a desk. We get out and experience the reality that hits you in the face every day of the week, then design products that can take on anything you can throw at them and then some.

The notion of our customized product and service started in a blacksmith shop many years ago working directly with customers. Over time, one thing led to another and business slowly evolved into steel fabrication primarily building logging trailers for the local lumber companies and mills. Fabrication and repairs for farming equipment also took place and together eventually transformed into the products we produce today.

Ox Bodies was founded in 1972 in Fayette, Alabama. Over the course of four decades, we became the industry leader in the manufacture of class 6 to 8 dump bodies servicing dealers and end users in the United States and around the globe. Ox Bodies leadership, ingenuity, and a never give up attitude paid off. We became part of the TBEI Inc. family of companies in August of 2005 without losing a step.

While the product we manufacture may have changed over the years our commitment to you has not. From our first handshake, our focus is and always will be you, delivering on strong value, quick delivery, and exceptional customer service.
