Aluminum dump bodies improve truck life

Tishomingo, Miss., January 11, 2010—DuraClass recently introduced an aluminum dump body to its line of Class 5-8 truck bodies. The corrosion-resistant aluminum design eliminates paint expense and increases body value at trade-in. Aluminum dump bodies can weigh over 30 percent less than traditional steel—increasing payload capacity, minimizing fuel consumption and improving truck life.

The DuraClass aluminum body is available with additional features including upper and lower tarp rails, integrated cab shields, ladders and patch gates. A double arm hoist offers stability and durability.

Truck Bodies & Equipment International Inc. (TBEI) is a leading manufacturer of truck body equipment. The company’s promise to the market, “Precision and Performance in Everything That We Do,” is reflected in the brands sold under the TBEI name: Ox, DuraClass, Rugby, Crysteel and J-Craft.
