Be the most envied tech in your trade!

When it comes time to up fitting a work truck, there are a few things to consider. Accessories, Accessories, and Accessories! Not only can they help with organization and make you more efficient, but it can also make for a safer work environment. With a Fleetwest service body we have the innovative solutions to create the ideal work truck so you can work smarter, not harder!

Driving a work truck can make getting into parking structures difficult. Fleetwest tackled that solution head on with a ladder rack that does not compromise storage space. This low-profile ladder rack is the first integrated ergonomic ladder rack of its kind. The hydraulic double-drop down ladder rack is 8" shorter and 60 lbs. lighter than traditional work truck ladder racks. Drivers will have improved fuel economy because of the lighter weight and better aerodynamics. Technicians also benefit from the convenience of a low-profile work truck that can drive into parking garages, car washes, and drive-thru restaurants.

Accessories that optimize service body space and make the job easier can take a work truck from good to great. The fiberglass Durashell, by Fleetwest can be equipped with a long list of options for that ideal work truck. A few examples are:

·         100 percent extension, 1000 lb. capacity aluminum slides
           make accessing supplies easy and painless
·         Cabinets and shelving with side access provide organized storage
           to keep track of inventory
·         Dividers and storage bins in various sizes to help with proper tool storage
·         Additional interior and exterior LED lighting for convenience and safety
·         Low profile, hydraulic ladder racks for easy accessibility

Whatever you accessorize your Fleetwest service body with, it will make you the most efficient and envied technician in your trade.

Custom pickup work truck

Finding a truck to fit your inner personality is easier today than it was even 10 years ago. It is now more popular than ever to get a customized truck straight from the dealerships. Special edition pickups are available from all the major manufacturers. Many truck owners in the past would drive a truck off the dealership lot and then start the painstaking customization process, piece by piece. Now you can walk into any dealership and every truck looks custom. Even if it’s the same truck, because of the options available to you the customer. Everything cosmetic with options like custom rims, grilles, emblems, paint jobs, etc. to function such as cab size, tow packages, side steps, bed liners, lights…and the list goes on and on! Take for example the Sublime Green Limited Edition Dodge Ram 1500.

The same process can be done with your work pickup truck. You can start with the truck you have or start shopping for a brand new truck and Fleetwest can help you build a work truck that suits you and your company needs. Choose a Load’N’Go model and then start adding your options, such as:
  • Ladder or material racks
  • Slide out trays
  • Adjustable shelving
  • Drawer dividers
  • Vice Mounts & Tool Holders

The customizing doesn’t have to stop there, either. The service bodies all come to you white powder coated, the perfect canvas for your creation to paint or even wrap it. One of my favorite examples is "Big Red" that Pro Pickup Magazine customized a Fleetwest Load'N'Go for a give away back in 2013.

The Fleetwest service body models fix to the truck bed using a clamping system, making them fully transferable from one truck bed to another.  Even fully loaded! Call Fleetwest today toll-free in the U.S. at (866) 497-7200 and create your own limited edition.
