Reading Steel Classic II Service Body
Here is a Reading Classic II that we just finished up. This is a steel body mounted on a 2019 F250 and is painted to match the Ford factory Silver Metallic.
A close up of the paint since it just looks gray in the sun. The metallic puts a nice sparkle to this truck.
Here are couple pictures of the overall truck.
We installed some gas bottle racking in this body so the customer could bring his torch along.
This body has powder coated white interior which really makes the inside of the compartments bright, while providing durably that a mechanic or technician can appreciate.
Here's a close up of the passenger side, rear grab handle and LED Flasher. Grab handles are a simplistic way to make ease of entry to the inside of the bed. This flasher is 1 of 4 with a flasher in each corner of the truck all wired into one factory switch in the cab.
Here is a close up of the rear recessed bumper, backup camera & light, backup sensors, and display in the cab. A recessed bumper makes hooking up trailer's a little easier and also makes changing the receiver hitches more accessible.
The Reading standard tailgate is a slam action gate. We put an aluminum trim piece over the edge on this body so the customer does not have to worry about scratching up the paint as things get slid over.
Just as a note going into the new year, we are stocking extra steel and aluminum service bodies for the end of the year. If you are looking at getting a body before the end of the year give us a call!

I really liked how you mounted the gas bottle racking and how the interior is coated white to make the inside brighter. My oldest brother owns a welding company, and he has been providing a mobile service. It would be beneficial if he gets an aluminum truck body for hid site jobs.

I appreciate that you explained hooking up trailers is a little easier with a recessed bumper, and changing receiver hitches is also easier. My best friend is looking for some info, this should help him. I appreciate that you helped me learn more about utility truck bodies.
