Who We Are
Fat Fender Garage started as a hobby and a dream before it turned into a reality in 2013.
We feel that becoming good at something requires being consistent at it. The trucks gave us the joy and opportunity we were looking for to become specialists and hone our craft.
We specialize in Coyote Swaps, Full Classic & Hot Rod Restoration Builds which opened up the doors to developing brand new custom chassis' and our own custom products so you can bring the Fat Fender Garage experience to your garage at home.
Jason started out as a bus boy at a Mexican restaurant here in Arizona, then went on to become an airplane pilot, then carpenter, then real estate agent, then truck builder, which he’s been for the last 8 years. Although he’s been a Ford guy all his life, he has a soft spot for all vintage trucks. His favorite FFG builds are usually the last one built, and his favorite decade of truck seems to change by the week. When he’s not working on/ managing builds, he’s usually found studying, learning, and reading. A little known fact about Jason: he has a deep hatred for sharks.
A former dairy farmer and bull-rider, Charlie has now been in the automotive industry for over 20 years. He ended up here at FFG after seeing we were hiring through Instagram, and has become one of our best mechanics. A Dodge guy at heart, his dream daily driver would be adding some mods to his sweet ’75 D100. He loves 70s era trucks, especially our ’72 Blue Bronco we built. On the weekends you’ll more often than not catch him riding his Harley, but deep down his favorite things in life are his wife and kids, but most of all his beautiful grand baby.
Interests include archery, guns, and anything involving the great outdoors. His first job was on the farm tending to cows, chickens, haying, and fencing, where he drove his 65 2wd F250. His favorite decade of trucks happens to be the 60’s styles, and his favorite ride of all time is the classic Ford Mustang. He’s been in the industry since his 18th birthday, and is now “blessed” to work here at FFG with his favorite build being the first he worked on, our ’67 F100.
