Flat Deck Truck Beds
It’s no secret that the flatbed is the king of the job site. Whether installed as a standard bed, plumbed to allow the ability to use it as a dump bed, or a custom variation, flat deck truck beds have been a hallmark of the Expertec upfitting process since we opened our doors over a decade ago. The advantages of a truck flat deck are many – virtually limitless customizing options, increased durability, and higher retained value over the life of your truck.
At Expertec, we’ve done the research for you and our choice for the best decks in the world are simple – our partners at CM Truck Beds, Bedrock, Future Line and Rugby.
CM Truck Beds is one of the best-known names in the aftermarket flat deck industry and offers loads of styles in both steel and aluminum. Expertec’s partnership with CM goes back nearly to the founding of both companies. Due to the constant research that CM does to make sure they have perfect-fitting decks for every truck, CM has long guaranteed to provide their customers with stability, innovation, and value no matter what CM Truck Bed they choose. Not only does a CM deck look great, they are built to last – giving you durability and usability as well as the ability to haul trailers better than any truck body in the industry.
Bedrock Truck Beds have been leading innovation in the truck bed industry not because they have been around for decades, although they are a part of a century-old group of companies, but by offering simple but critical solutions such as adjustable headache racks, plug and play wiring adapters and pre-assembled installation kits. One of the key reasons that Expertec choose to partner with Bedrock was the confidence they show in their craftsmanship – they offer a 3-year, 36,000-mile comprehensive warranty. Bedrock has proven that after a hard day’s work, you’ll come to appreciate the dependability and durability of the right Flatbed.
Rugby Manufacturing is one of the most respected names in the industry when it comes to Dump Bodies for light duty trucks. The Eliminator LP and Eliminator MD offer the durability and versatility that you need when looking for a true dump bed for a light duty truck. The most important part of the Eliminator Dump Body is this – the sheer number of ways you can order them! For heavier loads, the Eliminator LP gives you the advantages of a 9 to 12 foot body, plus critical cab protection. Do you need pinpoint placement of the load on the jobsite? The Eliminator MD gives you the option of either a traditional rear-dump or side dump capabilities – perfect for tight spaces or hard-to-reach job sites. No matter which Rugby Dump Body you choose, you’ll have the advantage of Rugby’s 3 year warranty, heavy gauge steel construction, and the Expertec team’s commitment to excellence.
Future Line Manufacturing is another innovator in the truck deck industry and Expertec is proud to have partnered with another leader in the design and manufacturing of the most advanced aluminum work-ready truck decks. Future Line represents the cutting edge in aluminum beds and decks and are relentless in their pursuit to be the best in the industry. Future Line manufactures their aluminum truck bodies for nearly any chassis and their use of aircraft grade aluminum for strength, weight reduction, and corrosion resistance represents real value to the buyer that reduces fuel costs for the lifespan of the truck.
The Expertec Difference? The truck bed you need, not just the bed that fits…
Over the years, we’ve installed, built, or customized hundreds of flat decks, dump bodies and bale decks. In all that time, with all those flat deck truck beds, we’ve come to realize there are three primary styles for our flat bed clients and dozens of ways we can set those up to be the perfect upgrade for a truck including headache racks, lighting, hitches, and storage. We know how to help you to get everything you need for your next flat deck, no matter what style you need.
Traditional Truck Flat Decks are exactly what most of us think about when we see a flat deck truck on the jobsite. Built out of tough steel or lightweight, aircraft-grade aluminum, these decks offer plenty of ways to haul what you need exactly how you need it, but, as experts in customizing, Expertec helps you to take these to the next level with LED lighting, heavy-duty hitches, headache racks, and the extra storage capacity that many flatbeds are lacking.
Pickup Dump Beds might be the single most effective way to double the abilities of any truck. Retaining all the functionality of the traditional flat deck, the dump body can have the “knockdown” sides for hauling or they can be removed for more traditional flatbed uses. In either case, adding a dump bed to a traditional pickup gives you the best of both worlds – increased functionality, easy drivability, and a huge time savings – on the jobsite or in the field.
