A Better Built Body
U.S. Truck Body’s Aluminum truck body has set a new standard in its class through decades of evolution. This sheet and post body combines premium materials and optimum manufacturing processes resulting in a body that will take abuse and continue to look good over the years.
The bodies are available in lengths from 10’ to 28’ and with a wide range of heights and widths. Choose from a standard or completely custom interior, a variety of doors, bumpers or liftgates and we’ll build a body that fits your application.
Stainless Steel Rear Frame
A 12 gauge stainless steel rear frame comes standard on all truck bodies. All corners are internally reinforced for strength, as well as externally gusseted at the top corners. This frame will look good throughout the life of the body. No need to worry about chipping paint or corrosion.
One Of A Kind Roof
Our unique two-piece roof-rail design not only increases strength, it also means the roof can be easily replaced (if damaged) without disturbing the sidewall structure. Durable, aluminum castings on each corner increase strength while front “zephyr” improves aerodynamics.
LED Clearance Lights
Brighter, longer lasting LED clearance lights are standard and are FMVSS-108 compliant. LED tail lights are also standard with the recessed taillight option.
DuraPlate Swing Doors
Our swing doors are an industry benchmark. We custom build each door using 13mm thick DuraPlate panels solely for toughness and durability. Stainless steel bar lock hardware, aluminum hinges, and replaceable stainless steel pins are then installed creating an extremely strong door that’s corrosion resistant.
Corrosion Resistant Hardware
The swing doors are not the only part of the truck body with corrosion resistant hardware – the exterior is assembled using aluminum and stainless hardware.
Superior Strength Front Wall
We use a 7 post front wall construction along with heavy-duty extruded aluminum radius corners that don’t compromise strength. When scuff plate is optioned in, we extend it below the floor and weld to the front cross member to withstand abuse from forklifts.
Domestic Hardwood Floors
We use only 1-1/8” or thicker laminated domestic hardwood, which run the full length of the body, to ensure durability. No need to worry about delamination or warping down the road.
Understructure & Undercoating
To protect from the harsh environment, the underside is coated with a durable weatherproof undercoating once the body is installed to seal the interior. Steel wheel pans are standard over wheel area unless the body is going on a tandem axle chassis.
For tandem axle trucks, we increase the strength of the body with the following package:
- Fully boxed 10 Ga. stainless steel rear frame
- Front and side angle or scuff welded to crossmembers
- 4″ tube longsills
- Heavier crossmembers
- Full-width crossmembers instead of wheel cutouts
