CTEK Co-Pilot Jeremy Johnson 

Starting with a small shop in 1999 Santee, California, owner Jeremy Johnson had a passion for combining his welding skills and love of the desert. This combination drove his new business to success.

Since Day One of that Santee shop, WeldTec Designs has stood behind the belief that they should build quality products at reasonable prices. The staff and design team at WeldTec have more than 20 years of experience in the automotive industry and off-road and metal fabrication. As their website says, they're ready for your project from "concept to completion".


Road to SEMA Gets to Know WeldTec Designs

As a copilot on the Road to SEMA, we wanted to get to know Jeremy and his crew a little better, so we asked him some questions to find out what a road trip would be like with this off-roading welder.

What was your favorite road trip and why?

San Diego to Overland Expo West 2019 in Flagstaff, AZ. The kids, my wife and I left a week before the expo so we would have time to do some exploring. We spent a few days in Sedona and it was beautiful! It was great being able to relax with my family!

What are your top 3 songs you must have on your road trip playlist?

ANY Guns N' Roses will do just fine!

Who would you choose as your road trip co-pilot, alive or dead, to join you on the ultimate road trip and why?

I would choose my son, Kaiden. He is six years old and so much fun to be around. Since he was six months old Kaiden and I have taken "boys only" trips all over. He loves trophy trucks and vans. He is always willing to give me a helping hand in the shop. Has even started his own YouTube Channel, Growing up Garage, to show you guys all the cool stuff we do in the shop!

What is your favorite vehicle/bike you have owned or built?

My favorite vehicle I have ever built was my 2018 SEMA build. It is a 2016 Chevy Express 3500 with added 4x4 Coil-Over Conversion built by myself and my team at WeldTec Designs. This van has the works for sure!

What is the one vehicle/bike you wish you owned? Or what was one you owned and foolishly sold it?

Who wouldn't love a Bugatti Veyron or at least be able to drive one...

What fueled your passion and got you into this industry?

Since I was a child I loved building things as well as going to the desert to ride and play. These passions fueled me to start my company, WeldTec Designs. Now I have the ability to do what I am most passionate about every single day!

Do you have anything coming up between now & SEMA that you would like us to feature?

We will be at OffRoad Expo in Pomona, CA.

Tell us about your experience with CTEK product(s).

We haven't used any of your products yet but would love to be able too! We have heard great things about your products and we would love to put them to use!

“Having owned several of another ‘popular’ brand of charger, the CTEK is far and above superior in every possible category. WELL worth the miniscule additional cost. ”
