Ironstar Bed with Custom Mounted Tommy Gate Liftgate

Our customer came to us for one of their customers looking for four Ironstar flatbeds and all with a Tommy Gate Liftgates. They showed Jason what they wanted, and he and Mike got on it!

Jason then got all the parts together and gave them a quote on what they were looking at cost wise. They agreed to it and brought all the trucks to us at once. Once we received all the parts, we started to assemble them all.

The customer had already removed the regular truck beds from the trucks, so we were able to jump right in.

They began with a 3/8X3 Flat strap and drilled a half inch hole into it. They then secured the flat scrap to the truck using ½ inch bolts. Next the flat bed is placed with the lift onto the truck frame.

After the bed is placed and squared, we place the flat strap up onto the bed runners and Robert welded it into place.

Once all of those were done, he then had to run different wires along with a fuel filler neck.

To custom mount the liftgate Robert had to create different supports onto the bed to hold the liftgate. He then welded them on and then began installing the lift. Multiple people helped place it and he did just enough welds to hold it into place and then he completed it.

Finally, all of the wires and lights had to be placed in order for the job to be done.

The customer was extremely satisfied with the work that was done. So satisfied that they are now a repeat customer of ours!

Box Truck Into Mobile Office

I love working at this job because I get the opportunity to transform someone’s ideas into a reality. A very nice woman stepped into our showroom looking for a way to turn her Chevy box truck into a mobile office. She worked for a non for profit company that receives funding from the community and buys supplies for homeless and less fortunate people. Wanting to branch out her company and reach more people in need, they came up with a plan to bring the supplies to the people, rather than the other way around. The whole team came together and we yet again made the impossible, possible.

This is the space that we had to work with. Not a lot of room for a whole office, but just enough to really create something nice. We already installed a Maxon Lift gate on the truck previously, and now it was time to focus on the office space. We hoped online and began researching the best custom layouts that would fit in this box truck. We searched everywhere from weather guard, to Kargo master, to Adrian steel shelves, all over.. then we found EZ Stak.

EZ Stak is a company that offers many different designs and customizations of shelves to be mounted in box truck, vans, and even food trucks. With the help of EZ Stak, we were able to pick and choose the right parts that the customer found beneficial to their company, including this locker cabinet and 60″ long shelves. She also ordered a 48″ long shelf and a counter top with a 6 drawer unit underneath it for added space. These shelves aren’t just any ordinary shelf, they are steel 18″ deep shelves that were very heavy and durable. One of the best looking products I have seen in a long time. If you look at the first picture of this blog, you can see that we tapped off areas in the box truck. Once the customer found the parts she was looking for, we took some painters tap and measured where that shelf or cabinet would sit in the truck. We then labeled that tap according to what the part was and how long it was. Once the parts came in we looked at the tap and knew exactly were each shelf would go. It was now time to install the office.

The office space looked amazing once finished. Every shelf, cabinet, and drawer lined up perfectly to our measurements, and was secured to the floor and through the wall of the truck. The customer was so amazed by the professional look of the truck and she decided to include our logo in their wrap design. We were so happy to see her vision come true, and now she can travel outside her stationary office and help those who are maybe in your community.
