The Time Is Now for Upfitting Your Vehicle
Light-Weight trucks and Vans look to turn to upfitting to reduce weight to meet regulations. Making the trucks weigh less, will also improve with their fuel economy. Companies are turning toward aluminum and fiberglass to reduce the amount steel used in the truck chassis. This process also looks to standardize trucks, rather than customize them so they fit the standard set out by the EPA. The streamlines process of shipping on these sleeker trucks, vastly decreases the order to delivery time. Some larger fleets are creating upfitted “test trucks” to work out any problems before they send fleets out.
