A Different Kind Of Fire Truck

Harbor Truck Bodies built a different kind of fire truck for a local fire department. This is an 11' Highliner Body, which is essentially an 11' service body with boxes added to the top that has doors opening upward to be able to see inside the compartments. In addition, this unique vehicle has an 18" bumper extension with compartments on both sides for small items and a work space and non-slip grip tread, or as some call it, spray on liner. Then, it has a 19" drop in tailgate with a 3-piece cargo bed enclosure that glides on teflon style pads and is so easy to move. The 3-piece enclosure opens up two thirds of the bed area when fully opened. And, of course, it wouldn't be a fire truck if it wasn't heavy duty and pretty too, so it's sitting on a Ford F450-550 uplevel chassis with Alcoa aluminum wheels. Pretty sweet, don't you think?
