Zip's Smart Body Is An Interesting New Idea In Truck Bodies









While doing our annual pilgrimage to the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis, I ran across a very interesting design of truck boxes that accommodate a wide variety of items and maintains a low profile so that the rear visibility is not hampered. The lids open like a gull wing and show off a large area that comes with some dividers to manage items effectively. As one photo shows, this makes perfect sense with a gooseneck flatbed with two boxes installed at the front of the bed, while the double box version is much more like a service body.

The boxes are a deep 34" and have a combination of shelving and dividers. Since this is a modular concept, the boxes are available individually and can be shipped around the country. They also offer a 24" cross frame Tunnel Box as shown in the last photo. I think this box is great looking and could be used in so many different ways.

Here's a blurb from their brochure: "Zip's Truck Equipment introduces a completely customizable SMART modular service body designed to meet all the needs of your unique customers.

Customized and clever storage compartments allow your customers to build for their exact needs. Improve the efficiency, productivity, and profitability of their business, and the business of your customers."
