Here is a super functional cantilever liftgate on a job we just finished! Cantilever liftgates give operators the ability to access the rear door and cargo space without having to lower an original style gate to the ground before climbing over it to get inside.
Here it is unfolded and lowered on the ground. The gate has a nice gentle taper for carts to roll up on.
Cantilever liftgates come with dual cart stops. Oftentimes, customers are using these liftgates to lift carts with their products or supplies. The cart stop makes it easy to keep the cart from rolling off the end of the liftgate. Also, they are super easy to operate!
Here is a quick video of the gate working at 4x the speed.
The customer needed a bulk head/partition. We paired them with a Ranger galvanized partition. It really puts a finished look to the van and most of all provides a wall of safety between the driver and the cargo!
Here's a nice delivery rig that we just finished up! The body is a 16ft Morgan Gold Star Reefer aluminum insulated van body
The van body is paired with a Thermo-King Model T-680R-50 Refrigerator/Freezer unit. This unit has a 230V Electric Standby so the customer can keep things cool at the dock without running the engine.
This body has a stainless steel rear frame. Over the course of 15-20yrs, most users will repaint the rear frame of their truck at least once. The cost to repaint the rear frame once is about the cost difference between stainless steel and paint steel. So if you are planning on running a rig for a while and want it to look nice, stainless rear frames seem like a no brainer!
The customer needed a liftgate with large platform and capacity to lift heavy loads of ravioli. We pair them with a Palfinger Model ILT-35 with a 3500lb lift capacity. This tuck-away liftgate allows the customer to load at locations with a dock and delivery to places were ground unloading is necessary.

Here's a job we just finished! This is a Reading 8ft aluminum service body with diamond plate flip top lids and a tri-coat paint job to match the pearl metallic cab. This beauty turned out great!
The customer specified a spray-in bed liner, rear grab handles, and E-rail.
We also spray-lined the rear bumper. This truck had back-up sensors which we installed into the new bumper. What a great way to keep your truck looking nice for a long time!
Here's a close up of the metallic since most of the pictures were making the body look white
With some serious towing needs we paired this customer up with a 20,000lb hitch and 7-way/4-way trailer socket . We also fabricated and spray lined a vise-mount and reinforced it to the frame.
