The Blue Ox Experience
A great testimonial on how
Blue Ox helped to prevent a major accident. Watch this video and see how Blue Ox can help keep you safe on the road.
Friess & Summit is an authorized Blue Ox dealer..
They take their time with you and answer all your questions. Honest people work here.,...showed me a bad weld and a food weld. Turned down a chance to make money by fixing a problem instead of a more expensive alternative.

I placed my 2004 F150 Super Cab in their hands and they did an outstanding superb welding job on the frame of my truck they put me all back together in one piece and took care of my needs and what I wanted. My frame to my truck was completely rusted out and Fred the welder helped me completely and took care of me. I highly recommend everyone that needs welding and fabrication done to any of your vehicles and I’m hi giving them five stars for service.

Over the years, Friess Welding has installed a number of trailer hitches on my SUV's and trucks. They also welded the frame on my 4 Runner which now has 250,000 miles. Saturday, they welded the exhaust to the muffler of my GX-470 for $30. Prices are always fair and the work is excellent. For any automotive welding or trailer hitches, I always recommend Friess Welding.
