• Adjustable bolted on large diameter striker pins combined with automotive rotary door latches provide positive door closure.

• Exclusive vertical “legs” of intermediate cross members rest on truck frame to provide maximum body support in critical wheel well area.

• Strongest understructure of any service body 7ga. full-width formed channel cross members vs. competitor’s 11ga. cross members 50% thicker material. Front cross member reinforced with 7ga. plates at body mounting points. Cross members are bolted to side compartments to give maximum support. Entire body underside has automotive type undercoating.

• Standard stainless steel paddle latches .

• Blind bolt stud mounting vs. competitors’ riveted on metal latches results in greater security and ease of replacement. Optional stylized automotive rotary paddle latches match truck door handles and are available for a slight upcharge.

• Full perimeter weatherproof automotive bulb type neoprene door seals. Double spring door retainers on full-sized vertical doors to hold doors in positive open or closed position.

• Entire body exterior made from 14-ga A-60 two sided galvannealed zinc coated steel.

• Interior light guards provide light protection and routing for wire harness. Light guards are bracket mounted and easily removable for light maintenance. Competitors’ light guards are welded to body making it difficult to install/service the lights.

• Omaha Standard PALFINGER service bodies receive complete electrocoat prime paint coverage. Because they are e-coated before the doors are installed (unlike the competitors’ bodies) Omaha service bodies get total paint coverage, including behind the door hinges. This means superior rust protection in a critical areas.
