Buyers Products Expands Line of Service Body Equipment and Accessories

Buyers Products

Buyers Products recently announced an expansion to its line of equipment and accessories for service bodies. Newly released is a Kabgard headache rack system, an extended ladder rack and a universal class 5 hitch receiver for both Ford and GM mounted service bodies.

The Kabgard™, offered in a black or white powder-coat finish, is bundled with the mounting brackets and fasteners, giving the user everything needed to install and mount to the service body. It also serves as a tie-down point for securing ladders and other cargo. The rack, designed to protect the cab’s rear window from damage, is available in two sizes to accommodate either a single-rear-wheel or a dual-rear-wheel service body.

The service body ladder rack has built-in tie-down points for cargo, along with built-in grab handles for added stability when climbing in and out of the truck bed. The over-cab design allows for an enhanced capacity of up to 1,000 lbs. Available in 13-½-ft, 14-½-ft and now 15-½-ft lengths, and is ideal for crew cab chassis.

The universal class 5 service body hitch receiver fits cabs and chassis with 60-in. or 84-in. cab-to-axle dimensions. It features a bolt-on frame and a 20,000-lb capacity. There are two new models, one designed for Ford F-350, F-450 and F-550 bodies, the other designed for GM 3500, 4500 and 5500 bodies.

“We’re always mindful of the unique demands of the construction, municipal and utility fleets,” says Dan Doerr, director of new product development at Buyers Products. “Our Kabgard systems offer cab protection for out on the road, while the growing popularity of crew cabs led us to offer the extended 15-½-ft ladder rack. And, lastly, the robust 20,000 lbs rating of our new hitch receiver ensures the versatility and durability required for heavier loads.”
