Aluminum, three-bar roof-mounted overhead ladder rack, available for all enclosed body models.
Parts are now available to integrate chassis’ power locking systems with the Reading Latch-Matic® keyless entry system. When the Latch-Matic system is integrated to the chassis, the driver’s OEM key fob, and door lock switches, will lock and unlock the service body as well as the chassis doors.
Create a secure seal on your service body compartment doors without sacrificing convenience, all with the snap of a single handle and padlock. The master locking steel slide bar simultaneously locks an entire compartment side to keep your tools and other equipment safe. The bar, which works independently of the Latch-Matic remote system, is spring-loaded for easy operation.
Single or double pull-down assist ladder racks for either 57 or 75 models.
Reading service and enclosed utility bodies are offered with a selection of ‘pooched’ bumpers that improve traction and give you sure-footed access to the cargo area. Bumpers are galvannealed steel for outstanding corrosion resistance, and available either straight, or with a center recess to provide easy access to a trailer hitch.
Designed for heavy-duty usage, galvanized shelves provide 2″ dividers for small item storage. Also available: full access between all vertical compartments for more extended tool storage.
Galvannealed Steel Floor
Reading’s signature A60 galvannealed steel, treadplate floor and inner tailgate surface provide additional corrosion protection and better traction. Tailgate uses double wall construction for durability and longevity.
Compartment lighting is automatically activated with Latch-Matic® keyless remote controller. Programmed to go off automatically after 10 minutes or when doors are locked. Lights feature impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses.
An all-aluminum dish around the fuel cap protects the body from accidental nicks and scratches during refueling, and is more durable than typical plastic brackets.
Two vertical braces inside the shelving area provide additional structural integrity and shelf support (on high-roof 72/75 models).
Undercoated Steel Understructure
Primed and powder coated steel understructure featuring fully unitized welding and U-beam girders braced and reinforced at all critical stress points.
Rear Access Doors
Rear access doors make it easy to load and store long items like conduit or piping. The access doors are positioned so the tail lights remain visible when transporting longer material that requires access doors to be open.
Triple-Protection Finish- Steel
Includes two sided A60 zinc coated galvannealed steel, acrylic E-Coat primer process and an abrasion resistant polyester powder coat finish for the most durable, corrosion-resistant finish available.
