If you’re searching for a new commercial truck, you may be wondering, “Do I need a chassis cab?” What is a chassis cab? To put it simply, chassis cabs are pickup trucks with no beds. Inside, the cab resembles that of a pickup truck and can be configured for more spacious seating. The chassis is versatile and can be converted with a service body, dump body, crane upfit, and more. Read on to learn more about chassis cab configurations and how these models are used in different industries.
What Are the Chassis Cab Configurations?
When it comes to chassis cab configurations, Northern Chicago drivers have plenty of options. Here are a few of the most common chassis cab bodies on the market:
- Chassis Cab with Dump Bodies — easier to maneuver than super dump trucks and semi-trailer dump trucks.
- Chassis Cab with Service Bodies — can be configured to suit a variety of needs and are made from strong yet lightweight materials that are corrosion-resistant.
- Chassis Cab with Crane Upfits — can be rated up to 12,000 pounds and are compatible with Ram trucks, as well as heavier-duty Class IV trucks from manufacturers like Kenworth.
You can find chassis cab variations of your favorite heavy-duty pickup trucks, such as the 2019 Ram 3500, 2019 Ram 4500, and 2019 Ram 5500. We also offer a wide range of Chevy Chassis Cab trucks. These models are as hard-working and versatile as they come, and only increase their capabilities as you move up the line.
What is a Chassis Cab Used For?
The uses for cab chassis trucks are as varied as the ways they can be configured. Depending on its body, you can use a chassis cab for any of the following operations:
- Waste management
- And more!
Additionally, you can outfit a chassis cab with an aftermarket package to make it suitable for your application, such as a recreational vehicle conversion package, ambulance package, fire apparatus, and more.
