What is a Cab Chassis Truck?

2020 Ford Chassis Cab from the side
When purchasing a truck, you may want a chassis cab instead of a traditional truck with a bed. But, what is a cab chassis, you ask? A cab chassis (interchangeably referred to as a chassis cab) is similar to a pickup truck up front. However, the traditional bed has been cut off! In its place, you can equip any number of variations. In fact, a versatile cab chassis truck can be converted into a service body, dump body, crane upfit, or one of many other forms.


What Are the Configurations of Chassis Cab Truck Models?

There are tons of commercial industries in Milwaukee and Chicago that make use of chassis cab trucks. But, what is a chassis cab truck going to do for you? Take a closer look at some of the most popular configurations below:

  • Chassis Cab with Dump Bodies: Dump bodies on a chassis cab are more comfortable to move than dump trucks and semi-trailer dump trucks.
  • Chassis Cab with Service Bodies: Service bodies allow for customization, and due to their lightweight, corrosion-resistant materials, they are suitable for many industries.
  • Chassis Cab with Crane Upfits: Crane upfits fit best on heavy-duty trucks since they can hold a lot of weight. This type of upfit is useful for anyone who needs to move heavy equipment.
