You are out there looking for the perfect truck. You have specific needs. Yet every truck you find is missing this or that. Have no worries. Your perfect truck is still with in reach. That is where shops like us, AJ’s Truck and Trailer Center, come into play. Trucks off the lot may be missing some key elements that you need. Work trucks have so many different jobs, that it’s almost impossible for the dealerships to get it right all the time with the options. I am going to tell you a little bit about this truck we just up-fitted here in our shop last week. The customer had purchased a new stake body truck for business use. It was missing somethings. We added heavy duty running boards, wheel simulators, an under body tool box, and a custom fabricated rub rail with stake pockets and matching ratchet winch tie downs.
First, we added the DeeZee Rough Step running boards. These are perfect for traction when the conditions are less than desirable, wet, and muddy.
Next, we custom fabricated ratchet winch strap brackets and a matching rub rail with stake pockets for securing cargo. This system is similar to what you might find on the big rig trucks. This was perfect, giving them multiple tie down options to make sure their cargo is always secure.
Now that the truck is ready for securing the load, we added an under body tool box to store the straps and other accessories in. This box is lockable and durable to stand up to the weather conditions here in PA.
To finish off the upgrades to this truck, the customer wanted a cleaner look on the wheels. We used Phoenix wheel simulators to tie everything together.
This truck is now everything the customer wanted. All the options they could think of, we were able to provide for them. If you are out shopping for your dream truck, keep this truck in the back of your mind and realize the possibilities are endless for customizing your truck. Your perfect truck is out there, you just might have to add a few things here and there. There are shops that can do this sort of upgrades all over. We are here in Central PA if you ever need a truck up-fitted.
