Aluminum TRUCK Body
Low Maintenance Hinge Shoe
Uniquely engineered for longer life, the dump hinge shoe is crafted from hardened ductile steel, with twin grease valleys machined inside for easy 360° lube around the pin.
Longer Floor Life
East uses only premium grade aluminum alloy for floor sheeting with yield strengths up to 33% greater than industry standards. We weld in lower stress areas to minimize points where failures are most likely to occur. And we use only full-box beam cross members at all floor seams for maximum support.
Our tailgates are custom fitted, giving you a precise fit that resists bowing and a tight seal that prevents loss of material during transport. Tailgate pins are plated and surrounded by stainless steel shims to reduce electrolysis.
Full Wrap-Around Bulkhead
The bulkhead is completely wrapped around the sides, including the top and bottom rails for maximum strength, reducing body twist and potential cracking.
Interlocking Strength & Faster, Cleaner Dumping
The bottom rail is an 8-inch extruded design, which includes an inside radius for faster and cleaner dumping. This allows maximum strength welding of side posts and sidewall sheet directly onto the bottom rail, before the dirt shedding wedge plates are added. Then the floor cross members and floor plate interlock into the bottom rail, reducing side deflection, body twist and cracking.
Interlocking Cab Shield
The cab shield interlocks over the bulkhead whenever possible, providing maximum strength and reduced cracking. The top perimeter of each cab shield is double-bent, forming an inverted U-shape to reduce deflection and bending.
