Here is a job we finished up early fall. This is a landscape and lawn maintenance van body named the Morgan ProScape. The rear door duals as a heavy duty aluminum ramp.
A view of the side with a drop down step and an wood clad aluminum door. This body also has vents in the front and rear sides to provide air flow while hauling gas cans.
The inside of this van body has a hardwood floor, hard wood scuff 10in high, ply wood lining, and 3 rows of hard wood slats to provide locations to tie off equipment.
A rear view of the bi-fold ramp open and closed. This ramp uses a counter balance similar to roll-up door to offset the wait of the ramp and makes storing the ramp a breeze. The fiberglass roof is translucent which provides great lighting throughout the day and there are LED lights on the ceiling to give visibility when the days get long.
The cab over design on this truck provides a shorter wheel base which gives an advantage out in the field and customers drive ways, making turning and backing easier. Thanks for looking and feel free to contact us about any van body needs you have!
Here is a shelving package we just installed in a Ram Promaster Van. The package includes a bulk head, 2 shelves, and a parts keeper organizer storage cabinet.
Here is a view of the bulk and the parts keeper organizer storage cabinet. The bulk head is made from galvanized steel and has a walk through door. The parts keeper organizer storage cabinet has 8 carrying cases that store securely and can quickly be pulled and carried into the job.
Here are some views of the carrying cases. Within each case are individual boxes that fit tightly together but can be moved around so the boxes can be setup just how the technician
Here are views of the 2 shelves. The drivers side has a longer shelf to utilize the entire side of the van and the passenger side shelf fills the entire wall of the van too.
Here is another view of the rear of the van. Thanks for checking out the post! We do offer Ranger Van equipment online which can ship directly to your shop or house if you prefer to do the installation.
Here is a Ram chassis that we just installed a 9ft Hillsboro flatbed on. The rounded design of this bed pairs really nice with the truck's curves and makes it looks like it belongs.
A view of the side/rear. We mounted flaps on both sides of the rear wheels to stop debris.
All the lights on this bed are LED. They really stand out at dusk/night and also give some added visibility when stopping. The top bulk head is also notched out to allow the Ram factory high mount stop light to be visible.
Chamfered corners are an option to give the back a more rounded rear. Besides giving the bed a little more "curb appeal" the chamfered corners also give a little more clearance when turning with a goose-neck trailer connected.
This view in the rear shows the backup camera we installed between the licence plate and the center rear light cluster. The camera sits below and behind the aluminum rail extrusion and behind the aluminum diamond plate. This gives the camera some added protection.
Thanks again for looking! We have quite a few in-stock of flatbeds ready to go or be installed. Feel free to give us a call!
Here is an enclosed service body we just finished on a Ford F350. This enclosed body provides lots of interior storage and is ideal for an operator or mechanic that needs extra dry, lockable space for storing equipment and parts!
We installed 1/8" aluminum diamond plate on the front of the body as rock chip protection. It is amazing how chipped this portion of the body will become overtime without these "chip guards."
Here is a view of the spray-lined interior of the body. The liner adds durability to the areas were the majority of the wear with take place. Above the side packs are were the interior storage shelves are located. These shelves as well as the entire body is powder coated inside and out.
The customer wanted spray-liner on the horizontal doors. He uses these doors much like a work bench at times and wanted them to have some coverage from scuffs and scratches.
Here a view of the pooched bumper complete with a custom vise mount, hitch, and 7-way trailer socket.
As always, thanks for looking and feel free to call us about how we can help you with your next up-fitting project!
Here is a job that just left today. It's an 11ft dump bed with a PTO drive hydraulic pump, drop down sides, double acting rear gate, underbody box, and chain basket. The truck really turned out great!
Driver's side profile view of the truck and body.
The customer needed storage for items that needed to be out of the weather and he wanted a place to hang chains with ease of access. We paired them up with an underbody box on the driver's side and a chain basket on the passenger side. The underbody box is lockable and weather resistant and the the chain basket provides ease of access and no pooling of water for chains.
Here is a view of the rear skirt, LED stop/tail/turn/backup lights, and 7-way socket. The customer is going to be pulling some large loads so we reinforce this hitch to handle their needs.
To operate the PTO the engine is started and the Chevy factory PTO button in the center of the dash, shown in the first picture, is pressed. When the button is pressed the engine will automatically idle up and the light on the console shown in the second picture will activate. The bed is then raised or lowered with the up/down toggle button in the third picture.
Thanks again for checking out the post! Feel free to give us a call about your truck idea!
Here is a job we just finished! It is a Reading Crane Master Body. We also installed a work bench bumper, Palfinger Crane PSC 3216 Crane, work bench bumper, manual out-riggers, Vmac G30 air compressor, auxiliary work lighting, drawer unit, and a few hose and welding cable reels.
Here is a view of the driver's side showing the location of the Vmac G30 Rotory screw air compressor(top left), Ctech drawer unit(bottom left), welding reels(top center), and the rear hose reel/air regulator(right).
The Vmac G30 is a rotory screw air compressor that is capable of producing 30CFM at 100psi. This compressor has optional triple 4 gallon tanks which gives a total of 12 gallons. The tanks are nice for some extra burst capacity but the G30 will still produce 30CFM at 100psi with a 100% duty cycle!
The Reelcraft cable reels are mounted half way down the body. One reel is a grounding cable and the other reel supplies a welding lead. Each reel is capable of reaching 50ft. The customer has a used welder that they are planning to install behind these reels.
The hose reel is located in the top of the rear driver's side compartment. The filter/water separator/regulator/lubricator is located just beneath the reel. The reel empties out on the back of the body were it can easily be pulled out up to 25ft.
The workbench bumper is not only a bumper that provides a flat surface, it also has internal storage for longer tools. This customer had a large piece of machinery that they were wanting to pull so we reinforce this hitch to handle his load!
Here's view of the Palfinger Crane PSC 3216 Crane. This Crane is electric over hydraulic and has a 3200lbs capacity. It is power up/down, in/out, angle, and rotation. The remote is wireless push button(show in the pic on the right). This is a very smooth running crane!
As always, thanks for checking out the post!
We just finished this flatbed up! This is a Hillsboro, 8ft, steel flatbed with a drop down side option. The bed is mounted on a Ford, F350, that had a pickup bed on it originally.
All Hillsboro steel flat beds come standard with a goose neck ball hitch built into the bed and a rear hitch to accommodate bumper pull style trailers. This bed has LED stop/tail/turn/ backup lights with additional lights in the bulk head of the bed.
Thanks for checking out the post!
Here is a service body we just finished up for a local general contractor. The truck is a used Ram 2500. We removed the pickup bed and installed an steel, Classic II, service body. We painted the paint gray metallic to match the truck cab.
We intentionally made the interior of the body white to make it brighter and easier to locate items.
All Reading Classic II bodies come standard with hidden hinges and gas props. The hidden hinges are a patented hinge that is all internal. There are no rust points and the hinge is stored out of the weather. Gas props offer resistance to the wind bowing your doors shut and do it in quietly controlled matter.
This is a view of the side of the truck. The clear coat on a dark color really makes nice reflection.
Here is a view of the back with the backup camera and backup sensors in the bumper. Thanks for checking out the post!
We finished this job last week for a local customer. This customer has heavy flooring equipment that he needs to load and unload on a regular basis. The matching aluminum van body with stainless steel corners, the aluminum liftgate, and the fiberglass nose cone help create a professional image in the field!
We set this customer up with a Maxon, 3,300lbs capacity, aluminum liftgate and a large liftgate platform. This gives them ample room load/drive their equipment on an off safely and the capacity to lift large loads. In addition, the aluminum platform will continue to provide a great image for many years to come!
The inside of the van body is lined with plywood with two rows of "E" track for ease of load securing. The bottom 10.5" of the wall is lined with Apitong hardwood to handle the normal skids and bumps of being used. Additional galvanized steel plate behind and above the hardwood in the front of the body gives added protection. The floor is our standard 1.125" laminated hardwood and the rear few feet is overlaid with 1/8" steel.
Fiberglass nose cones are a huge fuel savings over the life of a truck. Light weight and corrosion resistant, nose cones allow the wind to slide around the truck in more laminar flow. This results in less resistance and directly influences vehicle mileage!
Thanks for checking out the post! We would love to help you with your next truck project!
Here is a custom rack we built for Caterpillar Inc. This truck will be base for test equipment. It's always fun to do something new and working with Caterpillar Engineering to get an exact fit was enjoyable!
A view of the front of the truck. The rack is tied into the truck frame through the tow hook mounts.
