Durashell Service Body - the lightweight champion

The Durashell 170 is shown in this short one minute YouTube video on a 2011 Chevy 2500 HD pickup truck.

The Durashell by Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies is made from a lightweight fiberglass composite. It is rugged and durable so it will outlast multiple pickup trucks, yet light so you will save in fuel costs and can carry a heavier payload.

Durashells offer plenty of storage space, from 90 to 370 cubic feet depending on the model. The Durashell 170 featured in the YouTube video above offers 170 cubic feet of storage space. Because it is made of fiberglass composite, the Durashell is able to transport many materials and tools safely, from hazardous pool chemicals to fragile materials like glass. Durashell service bodies are suitable for industries such as HVAC, window repair, plumbing, pool installation and care, construction, and cable/internet.

The Durashell fits all major makes of pickup trucks such as GMC, Chevy, Ford, Dodge, and Toyota. Models are available to accommodate both short and long bed trucks. Check out the interactive Fleetwest Fit Guide to find the Durashell service body for your pickup.  If you are looking to create a "greener" fleet, the Durashell is a great option. Not only will a lightweight service body reduce fuel costs and CO2 emissions, but the Durashell also fits new pickup trucks that run on alternative fuels such as CNG and propane.

How could the Durashell service bodies get any better? They are completely transferable. The Durashell can move from on pickup truck to another in minutes. This means less trucks are needed for your fleet, which will be versatile and economical. You and/or your company will also by virtually eliminating downtime. When a technician calls in sick or your pickup truck needs to go in for repairs, simply move the Durashell off the truck and onto another.

No holes are drilled for the installation of the Durashell, creating a higher resell value for both your pickup truck and the service body. The Durashell can be easily installed with either the built-in forklift tunnels, a crane, or optional lifting jacks. Check out the life-cycle comparison to get the financial details on savings with a slip-on service body vs. bolt-on.
