Chassis Cab Frame

The frame of the Chassis Cab trucks is flat from the rear of the cab backwards so that aftermarket upfitters can have a clean slate to build off. When purchasing any chassis cab truck you'll be interested in the wheelbase and the cab axle length, which is measured from the back of the cab to the center of the rear axle. Our test vehicle came outfitted with a Jerr-Dan aluminum carrier deck rated for 5 tons and we used it to carry massive trail rigs, future project trucks, loads of steel, and scrap vehicles we dragged home just because we could. The rollback made us feel important with its flashing amber lights (great for showing your friends where you're camped in the desert), and we looked like true tow-truck drivers when we winched an ex-coworker's old Mustang onto the deck with the Ramsey winch.
