Reading Truck Body

The Master Mechanic™ Series body includes more standard features and benefits than our competitors’ standard production bodies — Feature Superior + Price Competitive = best overall value available.

Designed and manufactured to withstand the harshest environments and most demanding field applications while providing the user with the highest quality, most user-friendly, versatile, functional, and safe body available.


100-Series heavy-duty service bodies are available with a standard 9-foot body designed for a DRW cab and chassis with a 60-inch cab-to-axle. Like the rest of our Master Mechanic Series line, these versatile utility bodies are built modularly, so you have the power to configure the setup to your unique requirements. Horizontal cross-members serve to reinforce the substructure for one of the most durable and reliable utility bodies available. Prominent features include a Redi-Safe non-skid application that will not get soiled, slick or wet, is safe for use in welding applications and requires minimal maintenance over time. External work lights positioned on both sides of the bed are 360-degree adjustable and fully weather resistant for improved visibility working at night or in challenging weather conditions. Parts and materials are safely stowed in lockable exterior storage compartments, making them easy to retrieve when you’re working on off-site and mobile applications.

Aluminum Service Bodies

Aluminum truck bodies are among Reading’s most popular service body options due to the many benefits users enjoy. Aluminum service bodies are light enough for efficiency yet tough enough for rugged industrial and construction work. These aluminum truck body options allow you to provide dynamic service no matter your industry, taking advantage of their lightweight construction, durability, and toughness. The lightweight construction of these aluminum flatbeds for pickups means cost savings as you operate. These savings come at the fuel pump — and also in reduced maintenance for the vehicle itself, plus an extended lifespan for trucks that carry aluminum service bodies. Reading’s aluminum truck bodies are up to 50 percent lighter than comparable steel bodies and 10 percent lighter than composite fiberglass. You’ll find that your vehicles enjoy an exceptional performance when carrying aluminum services bodies, and you’ll notice the savings when you look at your annual gas and auto maintenance expenses. Aluminum service bodies from Reading are also environmentally friendly, which is essential to many companies that operate with corporate social responsibility as a leading principle. Reading aluminum service bodies are made exclusively from recycled aluminum. Because recycled materials take 95 percent less energy to produce than new materials, your aluminum service truck body will save energy long before it ever hits the road. In fact, it will save even more energy when it reaches the end of the road since it can be recycled and put back into service again.
