Aluminum Heavy Duty Western Style Hauler Bodies by Truck Customs - Ford F650




By Steve Taylor

This is a great walk-around showing the details of the Western Style Hauler Body manufactured at Truck Customs, Augusta, GA. Not only does Chris go over all the nice features of this great product, he points out the value of each detail.

I think the reason that I like this video is that it gets down to the bare product and shows the construction of the body before the paint is applied. Most videos focus on the end-product and you don’t get very much about the body’s construction.

Wait to see the great end-product at the end of the video!

Here is a similar F650 with Truck Custom's Western Style Hauler Body



Here are some of the features of the Truck Customs Hauler:


  • Low Profile sides
  • 3/8 inch thick all-aluminum construction
  • Stainless steel hardware
  • Low Profile Locks
  • Headache rack
  • Front cabinet allows pass thru storage of long tools, it is open from side-to-side
  • Closet  in tall front cabinet includes garment carrier rod
  • Cabinets fore of flared wheel-well
  • Rear facing cabinets for wheel chocks, chains, etc.
  • Top lid boxes over wheel wells
  • Running Boards cut-out pattern by CNC machine for Phenolic Tread Inserts
  • Stainless Steel Gas Shock Struts on doors
  • The fifth wheel is attached solidly to the truck chassis frame, not the body
  • Line-X Spay In Liner in Bed
  • Tie-downs are attached solidly to the truck chassis frame, not the body
  • Integral rear bumper with solid grab handles and recessed license plate
  • LED lights all-around, including back-up lights
  • LED lighted cabinets
  • Class 5 Hitch
In addition to the benefits offered by this design, the benefits of this aluminum constructed Hauler Body includes increased load capacity over steel construction, allowing increased payload of the body and trailer. It also is highly corrosion resistant.

You will find their hauler bodies used as heavy duty transporters for fifth wheel trailers transporting equipment, horses, and boats as well as towing RV’s.
