Labour Day Notice

As Winnipeggers prepare to plop down on their couches to watch our beloved Blue Bombers dismantle the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the Labour Day Classic, Carlson Truck Outfitters wanted to provide notice to our valued clients that we will be closed Monday, September 1st.

We will resume regular business hours on Tuesday, September 2nd and look forward to hosting you in our shop, where we’ll be happy to revel in the Bombers’ victory.

Not that we’re making any predictions or anything.

Enjoy the long weekend Winnipeg!

Ready or Not… the Holidays are Coming!

Winnipeg has been enjoying some mild weather these last few weeks, the kind of Autumn weather we’re not accustomed to seeing here in the River City.

What that unfortunately means is we’re living on the bubble before winter rears its ugly head and our still-somewhat greenery in Winnipeg will soon be coated in white.

Now for those of us who aren’t in the snow removal business (a great side business for anyone with a truck… we’re just saying) this might be an intimidating sight, but let’s keep one thing in mind – we’re still in November, which means that there’s a light – or should we say lights – in the dark tunnel ahead.

Yes friends, the holidays are coming. Before you know it, the kids will be out of school for winter break and it will be time for families to once again resume their lives together.

Now far be it from us to start recommending presents for your loved ones; after all, chances are you still have leftover Halloween candy sitting in your bowls at home. Still, it’s not to early to start asking, so you’re not doing that mad dash through retail outlets at the last minute.

Instead, we recommend coming down to Carlson Truck Outfitters for your early holiday shopping. If we don’t have the item that is both functional and meaningful, there’s nothing that shows you care better than the gift of safety for a truck or the added accessory that will aid you in your travels upcoming (particularly over the holiday season).

Remember – early shoppers have the better chance for their request to be filled. Some items may require appointments or special orders.

Call us today at 204 669-5249 to speak with one of our customer reps today.

Happy Thanksgiving from Carlson Truck Outfitters

We’re knee deep in leaves and loving it!

Thanksgiving is the time of year that we can truly be thankful in Winnipeg. It may not seem spectacular but our city truly is a great place to live. We’re proud to call ourselves Winnipeggers and we stand by the quality of our lives. We’re proud of how we work and we’re proud of how we play (well, unless we’re the Bombers… sorry, we just had to say it).

Winnipeg is indeed one great city and Carlson Truck Outfitters is pleased to have met so many of our fellow city dwellers over the last few months.

Enjoy this holiday weekend with your loved ones.

Gimli Dragway is proud to announce our first major entertainment event!

The Mobil 1 Thunder Jam is brought to Manitoba by Chudd’s Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep in Gimli and Walls Rod and Custom of Winnipeg.

Monster Jam heads from the arena to the drag strip and transforms into action packed, high speed Thunder Jam!

The show will feature an incredible line up of thrilling race machines designed to treat Manitoba race fans to a show unlike any other.

Monster Jam superstar Randy Brown pits his legendary 2,000 horsepower Grave Digger against Manitoba’s own IHRA World Champion drag racer Kenny Lang and his hemi powered 2,000 plus horsepower Pro Modified Camaro. While the two machines have very few similarities and are designed for two totally different forms of racing, they both share one very common characteristic – when they pull onto the track, fans take notice. The pair will go head-to-head in one of the most unique, most exciting and most over-the-top drag racing events ever at the Mobil 1 Gimli Thunder Jam.

In addition to the never seen before finale, the Gimli Thunder Jam will also feature a unique match up as Prairie Gold, Canada’s only bio fuel powered jet funny car returns to Winnipeg to take on Scott McVey’s 3,200 horsepower top alcohol funny car. This promises to be an all out test of power and speed.

Local and visiting drag racers will be going for the gusto for the prestigous Ironman trophy throughout the early evening, too. To add to the excitement, spectators will get the chance to be up and close to the feature stars and their cars at the ThunderFest Pit Party.  The entire pit area will be open so that you can see all of the race cars and talk with the drivers and crews. Souvenirs and concession food will round out the fun.

This is the first time that any drag racing event of this magnitude has come to Manitoba.

Fans of fast cars and explosive action are in for some incredible racing and a ton of fun! This is a “can’t miss” event!

Saturday, July 9

Tickets Prices: Adults  $20     Kid’s 12 and under  $5

Parking and an all-access pass to the ThunderFest pit party are free with admission

Gimli Dragway gates open at 2:00 PM with racing action starting at 4:00 and the feature races starting at 8:00 PM

$5 adult discount coupons are available at Walls Rod and Custom, Chudd’s Chrysler in Gimli, Cruisin’ the Peg every Sunday and on

For more information logon to<> or call (204) 642-1336

Catch the stars of the show for a preview on Friday, July 8 at Canad Inns at the corner of McPhillips St. and Jefferson Ave. 12 – 4 PM!

You can visit with Grave Digger again on Saturday morning, July 9 at Chudd’s Chrysler in Gimli
