Latest Fuel Technology

A new cross-linked polyethylene fuel tank is being shipped by Titan Fuel Tanks.  This new tank is said to eliminate the issue of steel tank lining delamination and other associated fuel path problems attributed to variations in diesel fuels and additives. Titan stated that the new fuel tank is quickly gaining favor among Ford dealers and users who have dealt with fuel line contamination in 1999-2010 diesel powered Fords.  The creators of the new tank say that the tank is virtually resistant to the corrosive effects of diesel and bio-diesel fuels.  In the past, the tank delamination problem, which is fuel related, is not covered under Ford’s warranty policy making the repair costs quite significant.  The polyethylene tank is made to fit 2011-2015 Ford F-350, F-450 and F-550.

The Load'N'Go ST-2000 by Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies is light enough for pickup trucks and a perfect match for continuous fuel and maintenance fleet savings. Load'N'Go truck bodies are completely transferable, on and off a pickup truck in minutes with no-holes-drilled installation. This means flexibility and higher overall value for fleets. An optional 1000 lb capacity drawer can be added to the Load'N'Go ST-2000 to provide extra organized storage in addition to the double-locking side compartments. All Load'N'Go service body models are made of galvanized steel making them durable and long-lasting.

Pickups: 10 Most Stolen Vehicles

As the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) released its annual Hot Wheels report, which lists the 10 most stolen vehicles, it concluded that full-size pickup trucks from the Big Three U.S. automakers made the list.  The report gathers its information from the vehicle theft data that is submitted by law enforcement to the National Crime Information Center.  There they determine the vehicle make, model and model year that were reported most stolen in 2013.  The report also performed a state-by-state analysis and what they found was that pickups were the most stolen vehicle in nearly half of the U.S.  When the NICB puts out their annual report they also include helpful tips to prevent a vehicle from being stolen such as, locking your car and taking your keys with you.  Also, having things like a warning device, immobilizing device or tracking device is a good precaution to help prevent theft.

Load'N'Go service bodies by Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies, such as the SecurityTop, are equipped with stainless steel, double locking T-handles, and made to protect expensive cargo from both theft and weather damage.

Aluminum Work Trucks


The use of aluminum for the bodies of new pickup trucks is said to be used by more than 75 percent of trucks that are produced in North America by 2025, according to a studied that was cited by Hard Working Trucks.  Ford is headed into the direction that the study has foreseen as they just announced that their 2015 F-150 will integrate the use of aluminum into their new models.  By adding aluminum to the body and bed of the pickups has caused the truck to shed up to 700 pounds, which allows the F-150 to tow more, haul more and also contribute to more efficiency, according to Ford.

Prevent Work Truck Theft

A study from an annual construction equipment theft report reveals that light utility vehicles are the most common type of commercial equipment targeted for theft. The National Insurance Crime Bureau records losses close to $1 billion a year in construction equipment and tool theft. Areas with a lot of active construction projects and major shipping ports are the most common for equipment theft. Furthermore, the newer equipment models are stolen more often than older because of a greater resale value, which means even bigger losses for companies. 

Construction and technical businesses are at an increased risk for theft that causes significant monetary losses. Higher equipment theft creates a need for increased security measures in work trucks. Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies Load'N'Go services bodies provide a solution to protect your tools and expensive equipment from theft and damage. It's all in the name for the Load'N'Go Security-Top which has double-locking doors and side-boxes. For added security, tailgates can be kept on and locked with any Load'N'Go truck body.
