Our fire bodies are MIG and TIG Welded Aluminum, Galvenneal, or Stainless Steel. We start the process with 2×3 tubing to form the body skeleton and wrap it with 12 Gauge Stainless, Galvenneal, or 3/16th inch Aluminum. The bodies are built with this type of construction for not only durability but an added layer of safety for firefighting personnel. On our existing Type 3 Engines and our new Type 4 and Tactical Tenders, we have elevated the tube behind the cab to add a layer of rollover protection to our vehicles.
