Load'N'Go Frequently Asked Questions:
1. What are key benefits of a removable utility body rather than a cab/chassis mounted standard utility body?
Load'N'Go Removable Truck Body has several advantages over the traditional style utility bodies:
No limitation for the uses of a specific vehicle - increasing the flexibility and actual value of the vehicle
No need to purchase, maintain and insure multiple vehicles – one truck can be used for several operations or as both a work and a "play" truck
Simplifies purchasing or leasing
Standardization is becoming more important to fleet managers. Load'N'Go allows you to purchase or lease a standard pickup trucks that will satisfy several user groups
With a purchased or leased work truck, when the vehicle arrives you can quickly install the Load'N'Go and the crew can go to work. No waiting weeks for a body to be installed
Load'N'Go utility bodies outlast chassis-when the chassis is replaced, or you're at the end of your lease, there is no need to pay for a new utility body, with Load'N'Go, simply transfer the body to the new truck
Load'N'Go will outlast most standard utility bodies in harsh environments due to large portion of the body being protected from the elements, road debris and salt by the truck bed.
You never lose access to your body, tools and equipment
If your truck requires service or is in an accident, simply transfer the entire body to another truck and continue working and earning
The vehicle does not require recertification
Factory fuel lines, bumpers, electrical are left untouched
Resale value on a pickup truck is typically higher than on a used chassis with a utility body
Unload the body at a job site and use the body as a job box

2. How do I remove the body and do I need to unload it first?
The Load'N'Go body is designed to be removed without unloading, if applicable the material rack might need to be unloaded. There are only 8 bolts (4 on each side) inside the toolboxes which need to be removed. Making removal easy and fast. Load'N'Go bodies can be removed with a forklift with built in forklift tunnels, or our optional lift jacks or crane lift tubes.
3. Does the Load'N'Go have as much storage space as a standard 8' utility body?
The Load'N'Go actually has MORE. An 8' utility body has 40-45 cubic feet of storage space, the Load'N'Go Open Bed for example has 60 cubic feet of storage space.
4. Can I carry a full width sheet of material in the bed?
Yes, the bed area of the Load'N'Go is 48-1/2" wide to accommodate full 4' wide sheets of material.
5. I have had my utility body broken into many times, is the Load'N'Go secure?
Load'N'Go has addressed the security issue with several items:
Each compartment has a "T" handle that can be locked with a padlock and cylinder key
Compartment doors are attached with a full length stainless-steel piano hinge, not hinge blocks
Load'N'Go has 14 gauge double panel doors
If you do not need your tools and equipment, remove Load'N'Go and secure all of your tools and equipment in the shop or garage
6. How much weight can I put on the bed?
The Load'N'Go bed floor has a rated capacity of 2,000 pounds!
7. What are the dimensions and weight capacity of the rear drawer unit?
The Long Bed drawer dimensions are: 90" long x 41" wide with 7 1/2" Side Rails (8 7/8" height clearance) and 1000 Lbs Load Capacity.
The drawer also includes adjustable dividers and a Heavy Duty .188" thick rubber floor mat.
8. What trucks do the Load'N'Go fit?
Load'N'Go bodies are universal fit for Ford, GMC, Chevrolet, and Dodge 1/2, 3/4, and 1 Ton pickups with standard 8' long and 6.5' short beds.
The Sportsman and ST-2000ND models are light enough for any 1/2 ton truck including Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan. We DO NOT offer models for 5.5' short bed crew cab 1/2 tons, as there is simply not enough fleet demand for service bodies for small trucks.
Also view our Truck Fit Guide for quick details.
9. Do I need special mirrors?
No, most of the current Load'N'Go users are utilizing the standard factory mirrors.
10. How is the Load'N'Go attached?
The truck is not drilled to mount the body. The truck bed remains in its original condition. The Load'N'Go is bolted to 4 mounting blocks that are clamped to the bed rail. Installation and removal of the body requires the installation or removal of 8 bolts.

11. Can I keep my tailgate on with the body?
Yes, when the Load'N'Go is mounted the tailgate can still be on the truck and closed. (Even on the short bed Dodge w/ 74" Bed) This is a great feature as you can use your factory backup camera!
12. Are they available in other colors?
The Load'N'Go Bodies are finished in a rugged White Powder coat inside and out (Sportsman model has a black Load Liner finish). The coating is applied during the production process before final assembly, so these only come in white for low quantity orders. Black or factory paint/color match powder coating is available on qty orders of 10 or more units for an additional charge. Minimum order for black or color is 10 units ordered at the same time...NO EXCEPTIONS.
The Load'N'Go can also be painted at your local body shop with minimal prep, like any service body and the powder coating is a great base coat.
