Pickup Dump Inserts
TruckCraft was the first with an all aluminum pickup dump insert, the TC-120 ULTRA. We were first to offer a three-year warranty and first with a 150 amp resettable circuit breaker standard in every wiring harness. There are no grease points on any of our dumpers because they are designed to use no-lube nylon bearings at every pivot point. We continue to innovate with our steel TC-101 MAGNUM, Providing a 6,200 pound true lift capacity. The unit uses a 3-stage front telescopic cylinder to get your load down low in your pickup bed for a safer center of gravity. The MAGNUM’s all 6061 T6 aluminum subframe cuts weight and never needs paint maintenance.

TruckCraft’s TC-131 D-ICER is a premier spreader made entirely of aluminum and stainless steel. The system is designed to fit our TC-121 Ultra Aluminum Pickup Dump Inserts, and with adapters can fit any brand of pickup dumper. The TC-131 is made of marine grade* aluminum and stainless steel, so is non-rusting and provides low maintenance and operational costs. *All aluminum used by TruckCraft is 6061 T6 or 5052- H32, classed as grade A or B by the Aluminum Association Standard. Grades A and B are recommended for use unprotected in industrial or seacoast structures.
TruckCraft’s TC-140 D-ICER PLUS tailgate replacement spreader for one-tons requires no hydraulic system and is easy to install.
TC-160 LIGHTNING 12V ELECTRIC UNDERTAILGATE SPREADER. All TruckCraft spreaders carry a two year factory warranty. Made of tough, corrosion resistant 6061 T6 Aluminum alloy and stainless steel you get the best of both worlds, weight savings and extreme durability in high-salt conditions. And check out innovative designs by TruckCraft, such as the completely enclosed 90 degree-angled gear reducer on the SPINNER DRIVE. It not only provides maximum road clearance by positioning the motor up, horizontally, but the 2:1 gear reduction doubles torque, allowing you to slow the spinner down without sacrificing torque. Heavy, factory assembled wiring harnesses carry power from the USA-made Electronic Control Unit to the enclosed, LEESON Wash-Down-Grade motors, made with type 304 stainless shafts, double seals, epoxy coating, and sealed housings. It doesn’t get any beefier than this.
Aluminum Service Body
TruckCraft’s new LANCER is a green-focused aluminum service body available for Single or Dual wheel pickup chassis that will save fuel every driven mile while providing years of secure storage. The deck floor and understructure are made from custom-designed aluminum alloy extrusion with tensile strength equivalent to steel for real durability, but weighing in at only 640 lbs(SRW), 840 lbs(DRW). That’s about what your pickup box weighs now. Combine classy powder-coated cabinet doors, the near-zero maintenance of aluminum, stainless steel hardware and you get TruckCraft’s great fuel saving service body that will likely be moved on to your next truck.
The details of the Single or Dual wheel LANCER are where the value of this new TruckCraft-designed body really shines through. Compare the welded double panel door construction, stainless steel door hinges, the black and chrome twist lock T handles, bright diamond plate cabinet tops and adjustable cabinet shelving, and we believe you’ll see greater value than in any other comparably priced service body. How about these additional features – single handle top-drop/slam-shut tailgate, gas springs on vertical doors, rubber mounted LED lights with factory wiring harness, D-bulb style rubber door weatherseal, and a five year factory warranty. Mounting hardware is included for certain box-delete single rear wheel pickups. *NOW AVAILABLE WITH REMOTE KEYLESS ENTRY & INTERNAL LIGHTING!
Aluminum One-Ton Dump
Our aluminum ZEUS dump bodies for one-ton chassis save about 500 lbs over steel dumps, but offer the same hoist ratings to get your jobs done quickly using less fuel. ZEUS features three to four yard capacity, double acting hoist, 50 degree dump angle, up to 3/16” floor thickness and cross sills every five inches. This item ships completely assembled, with subframe painted, and comes with all stainless steel hardware.
Never sandblast or re-paint your one-ton steel dump body again to try to get another few years out of it. The new ZEUS will stay looking sharp with little maintenance, and you will be able to move it to a new chassis someday without having it crumble apart because of all-too-familiar cancer rust. Saltwater boats, aircraft and automotive applications have demonstrated time and again that if selected properly, aluminum will withstand saltwater and moisture corrosion much better than steel without costly paint maintenance. According to The Aluminum Association’s website, www.aluminum.org , “Automotive and light truck applications accounted for almost 6 billion pounds of aluminum shipments in 2006.” That’s a lot of rolling aluminum, and TruckCraft knows how to design and build rugged and durable products using aluminum!
If clean design and well executed workmanship, rugged but easy-to-use controls and latches, 500 lb weight savings over steel, maintenance free appearance are things you want, see the ZEUS all-aluminum body at your local TruckCraft dealer today.
Available models include heavy duty flats(200 lb/sf load rating), extra heavy duty flats(350 lb/sf load rating), dumping, towing, and specialty flats. In the Dumping Aluminum Flats section see our Reversed-Hoist dumping flat with a 17,000 lb hoist capacity plus a 30,000 pound tow-capacity gooseneck ball factory installed . All TruckCraft flats are made of 100% 6061 T6 alloy extrusion in a proven design that gets more strength and rigidity per pound of aluminum than even many steel flatbeds (but at just 60% of the weight). Sizes and capacities are available for pickup trucks, up to 19,500 pound capacity one-tons.
All construction materials are 6061-T6 aluminum alloy extrusion with 37,000 PSI minimum tensile strength. The floor is made of plank extrusion that is designed with a tongue-in-groove joint on each plank top, and two crossills every 5″ for rigid reinforcement that will take heavy punishment in stride.
The standard long sills are 4″ high x 2 1/4″ wide structural aluminum channel, with optional 6″ or 7″ longsills available for hoist, or extra heavy duty applications.
Rub rails are a custom shape providing 5 1/2″ side height with extruded ribs for added strength and improved appearance. The rub rails, as well as the front and back rails, have stake pockets cut into the tops. Bed corners are mitered for safety and improved appearance.
Body comes complete with flush mounting 2 1/2″ grommet style LED clearance and marker lights, with wiring harness.
RATING: TC 500 is rated for 200 lbs/SF evenly distributed load. e.g., 96″W X 110″L= 73SF = 14,600lbs rated load.
