Durashell 370 as alternative to SUV or VAN

Work Truck Online recently published an article on the Durashell 370 that highlights the advantages of a transferable truck body on a standard pickup truck versus an SUV or Van.  Highlights of the advantages and cost benefits of the Durashell 370 include:

  • over 6 feet internal height
  • lower cost 4 wheel drive solution
  • 12.5 feet internal length
  • separate hazardous materials and loose tools from passenger cabin
  • eliminates technician downtime when van or suv is in for service or repairs (simply remove the Durashell 370 fully loaded onto another pickup truck)
  • lightweight solution - only 720 pounds
  • huge storage capacity - 370 cubic feet
  • better fuel economy
Feel free to watch the following YouTube video

Ford Pickup Truck RECALL

We received this e-mail newsletter note from Dale Wickell, your Guide to Trucks -- For the full article, click on title.
Ford will recall about 1.1 million pickup trucks to inspect their fuel tank straps. Not quite a year ago, owner complaints prompted the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to investigate whether or not problems with corroded tank straps were limited to just a few trucks, or signaled a widespread problem. This new recall makes the findings of that study pretty clear.

Recalled Ford Trucks

  • 1997-2004 F-150 pickup trucks
  • 1997-1999 F-250 pickup trucks
  • 2002-2003 Lincoln Blackwood trucks
