Pride Bodies switches to aluminum, cuts weight from mechanics bumper

Pride Bodies has released a new service truck body mechanics bumper that is 200 lbs. lighter due to the use of aluminum in place of steel.

Aluminum reduces weight, fuel costs and provides a material that will withstand the ravages of salt and liquid calcium chloride, the company said.

“Durable aluminum bodies allow our customers to consequently reduce the truck class while increasing the payload.   With the cost of fuel and the intensity of DOT monitoring of truck weights assembling the right combination of chassis and truck body is important in today’s economy,” said Russ Lanthier, president.
