TruckCraft Metro Makes Your SRW Rock!

I love looking at TruckCraft products. They have so many interesting and even unique items that serve a lot of people around the country. They have a network of 135 dealers in 160 locations to serve customers coast to coast. Since the headquarters is in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, they have more distributors east of the Mississippi. Nonetheless, I saw TruckCraft bodies on the lot of a Ford dealer in Washington, so I know they get around.
This is a very interesting product.

I'll let TruckCraft tell you the news:

"The new TruckCraft Metro will convert your single rear wheel pickup to a handy, aluminum dropside flat with over 56 sq ft of enclosed deck space that can be accessed cleanly by a forklift from any side. A typical 8 ft pickup box has around 32 sq ft of flat deck that can only be accessed from the rear, over the tailgate. The METRO’s extruded 6061 T6 alloy dropsides and tailgate are instantly secured with rugged, load-rated latching hardware that allows a completely open access with no corner posts.

Need a dump truck? The Metro can easily be converted to a sharp, three-way dump with the optional double acting hoist kit. That’s right – switch to dump left, right or rear in a matter of seconds by re-positioning two tool-free pull pins.

Other options include: A canvas cargo top complete with sliding bows; a set of 36” high hinged screen sides; a rear ladder rack, and a center belly pan for ramp storage.

Ask for the TruckCraft METRO when you order your next truck, or when you need more from your existing truck.

I think this is an awesome product well suited for light duty work and looking great in the process. The lightweight aluminum body is still super strong--just look at the underside photo! And, best of all: TruckCraft appears to be quality all the way. What I have seen has demonstrated this. We reviewed their gorgeous Zeus Aluminum Dump a short time ago. Here's the link to that piece: Zeus Dump.
