Reading Introduces Isuzu NPR With Tool-Pro Body


Reading Truck Body has introduced the Isuzu NPR ECO-MAX work truck with Tool-Pro body. The truck is on display at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis.

The Tool-Pro aluminum body offers "plenty of room to store a wide variety of equipment," according to Reading. It offers a reinforced understructure, hidden hinge technology, rear access doors, Dual-Pro door seals, galvanized shelving, LED lighting and a nitrogen strut door. The truck gets Reading's E-Coast primer and powder-coat finish. Its aluminum material provides as much as a 50 percent weight savings over comparable steel bodies, which yields up to 10 percent in fuel savings.

The body offers a B-10 rating of 310,000 miles. The truck is powered by Isuzu's 4J four-cylinder diesel engines, including the 4JJ1-TC 3.0-liter DOHC turbo diesel that produces 150 hp and 292 lb.-ft. of torque.

The vehicle is initially available exclusively through authorized Isuzu dealers. It will also be offered from authorized Reading Truck Body distributors.


We love what they've done with the interesting redesign of the two front vertical compartments into one long compartment underneath and two large square compartments above it. Great design! High Five to Reading! -- CTS
