Looking for help with your fleet?
Trucks that idle for long periods of time have different needs than trucks subjected exclusively to highway miles or that tow. We can provide maintenance programs specific to your Fleet’s use to optimize their reliability and longevity. We understand that having a truck down can mean lost revenue. With over 100 years of know-how in our shop, we will be able to diagnose the problem quickly and restore service to your vehicle in an expeditious manner. We have proven experience with small fleets of a few vehicles up to large municipalities and national corporations. We accept most major Fleet Cards and in some cases will extend terms.

Because of our many years of exposure to the Ford Powerstroke, we have extensive knowledge of which parts tend to fail over time and the right part to replace it. In many cases, a Ford factory Motorcraft replacement is the best choice, but in some situations, our research and trials with our own vehicles reveal certain after-market parts that may be a better value or prove greater reliability and performance.
Likewise, Dodge and Jeep are similar to the Powerstroke and we are able to make recommendations for those brands as well.
We also offer Over the Counter and Over the Phone parts sales to individuals and other shops. We maintain a sizable number of commonly used parts in-house for immediate pickup and can obtain most other parts within one business day. We can ship to anywhere in the lower 48 and Alaska.

LOOKING FOR AN UPGRADE? WE GOT YOU!
KEM South is the exclusive diesel dealer for YTS Turbo Chargers. From 7.3L Stock to the 6.4L Stage III Beast. We helped in the research and development process for these turbos and can guide you on selecting the right turbo for your specific needs.
Other common upgrades include injectors, cold air intakes and transmissions. If you spend any time on the internet, you will see more aftermarket manufacturers of these parts than you can count. We help you sort through all that by meeting with manufacturer representatives and engineers each year at SEMA to learn about their products and then test the products on our own vehicles.
Our shop is an authorized dealer for S&B Filters, SunCoast Transmissions, Bostech Injectors, and JMS. We have direct relationships with decision makers or owners of all the brands we represent…when you buy from KEM, you will too.
