Dakota Bodies Unveils Second Generation Service Body

Dakota Bodies announced the release of its new weld together service body. From what started the company in 1997, the traditional weld together design has seen many improvements over the years. Dakota Bodies recently introduced some further developments to improve price, performance, and appearance.

The weld together design of the Gen II Service Body provides a long-term, solid connection between parts to achieve exceptional structural integrity. The most notable update to this body is the included universal mounting kit designed to fit 2020 and newer Ford, Ram, and GM chassis. Other major design updates include:

  • Compression T-handle door latches
  • Cast aluminum fenderettes
  • Silver zinc finish tailgate brackets
  • Fuel filler cup in streetside fender
  • Modernized bumper appearance

Excited about the release, CEO Jeff Orthaus says, “I think customers will appreciate the modernized design elements, new price point, and ease of upfitting with the universal mounting kit. Times change, and it’s important that we adapt and continuously grow our products to fit current and future needs.”

Additionally, the Gen II Service Body is completely customizable to fit each customer’s needs. It is also immediately available for quotes.
