- .125 Diamond Plate Aluminum Construction
One piece side packs and heavy gauge double panel door are much stronger than flimsy sheet metal seen in some service bodies and provide the rugged construction our customers need.
- Stainless Steel Hinges and Vector Latches
Stainless hinges are good looking and long lasting. The Vector T-Handle compression latch ruggedly holds the doors tightly closed.
- Super Light Weight.
The finished utility bed weighs less than 500 lbs.(compared to 1,300+ lbs for a steel bed the same size).
- All beds are computer designed and built off of isometric CAD drawings.
We draw 3-D pictures of every bed we build and then use state of the art computer controlled machines to fabricate them. This enables you to see your bed BEFORE it's built. If we can draw it, we can build it and give you exactly what you want.
An aluminum service bed doesn't weigh much more than the original pickup bed. How much will not packing around an extra 700 lbs. save you in fuel costs, brakes, tires and other wear items? Plus, there will be NO RUST!
We custom build each truck bed, so we can add whatever options you need to get the job done. This bed has top opening compartments and pull out drawers with the best slides and latch system we've ever offered.
Our side packs are formed out of one 1/8" thick sheet of marine grade aluminum, so there's no seams. This results in a smooth reveal - good looking and long lasting. Most steel beds are made from flimsy 14 GA (.08") or even thinner material! The floor is 1/8" diamond plate, with 1" side flanges and formed in front and rear cross members, eliminating potential for cracking.
The truck bed is wrapped using the same 3M vinyl seen on every thing from race cars to semi trucks. Using just a base color looks very good, or the wrap can easily be printed with your company logos and information.
An aluminum bed does not cost much more than a steel bed, so there is absolutely no reason to ever put on a heavy steel service body on a small truck again. Call us today so we can get to work adding aluminum truck beds to your fleet.

but is it tough enough for heavy duty use?
This is a question I'm often asked. Here's proof it is. I had these two semi truck wheel hubs on a pallet near the tailgate. I had to hit the brakes hard when someone turned in front of me, and the front hub went sailing off the pallet and banged loudly into the front bulkhead and flipped over. All it did was nick the aluminum and left a small dent. Not too bad.
