Durability Makes The Difference!
For over 44 years Drake has been building exceptional truck bodies that well exceed the industry standard! We are known for manufacturing the strongest, most durable truck bodies sold anywhere in North America. We offer a seven year structural warranty, but our customers find they have relied on our truck bodies to last fifteen years!
We have overall 75% more structural aluminum content than any other truck body!
This focus on durability means from the frame to the sills and bows we've got you covered!
Our 2-inch-thick aluminum Zed posts are exclusive to Drake! These high-tensile upright sections have flange reinforcement for unheard of structural strength!
Extruded specially for Drake, these extra-deep lower rub rails are engineered for:
Rugged open box end cross member undercarriage construction, using continuous electronic weld process to main frame assembly, extending full length for integral tie-in points at lower rub-rail and rear frame.
Another plus feature found in Drake Truck Bodies is the fuel-saving 45 degree angle front post designated to ward off direct blows and cut down wind resistance. Snap-lock construction allows the sides and front to be self-aligning and ensures watertightness.
We produce sleek, seamless panels on our truck bodies without the use of plastic corner caps.
This makes Drake not only the clear choice when it comes to quality, but also in terms of the perfect canvas for your promotional needs!
