Thunder Creek Expands Truck Upfit Fueling and Service Product Line with Class 5 Isuzu NRR Chassis


Thunder Creek Equipment has announced the expansion of its truck upfit line of fuel and service solutions with the addition of the Class 5 Isuzu NRR truck chassis. This expansion includes both the No HAZMAT Fuel & Service Upfit (MTU) model, as well as the Service & Lube Truck Upfit (SLU) for daily fluids and preventive maintenance.

“The addition of the Isuzu NRR truck chassis to the Thunder Creek family of upfits is engineered to meet customer demand around this very popular commercial truck platform, and to further improve maneuverability and visibility — both on- and off-road,” says Seth Schreur, vice president of engineering, Thunder Creek Equipment. “The success of these truck upfits is built on the ability to deliver fluids to jobsites and customers in a truck that costs significantly less to own and operate than larger, higher-volume trucks. The Isuzu NRR chassis does that and more with best-in-class maneuverability, a heavy-duty six-speed automatic transmission, and the proven performance of a turbocharged Isuzu diesel engine.”

The Isuzu NRR truck chassis features a GVWR of 19,500 lbs and is built sturdy to handle bulk fluid delivery to sites ranging from paved commercial and institutional sites to off-road construction sites. The primary benefits of the Thunder Creek upfit platforms compared to larger, higher-volume bulk tanker trucks include lower total cost of ownership, the ability to get in and out of more compact/crowded sites, less disturbance and lower ground pressure, and the ability to deliver critical fluids to each site without requiring a HAZMAT endorsement or a CDL.


It’s ultimately more practical for business owners and fleet managers to own and operate — helping them take greater control of their fluid delivery schedules, equipment uptime and customer satisfaction while not limiting the labor pool that can drive each truck.

The innovative No HAZMAT and no CDL design developed by Thunder Creek has transformed various industries, including construction, equipment rental, dealer service departments, home heating oil delivery, disaster relief operations and widespread fuel distribution networks. Thunder Creek accomplishes this through the innovative design and engineering of each truck to keep bulk fluid quantities below mandated levels while delivering an operator interface that makes fueling and daily fluid delivery easy.

The No HAZMAT Fuel & Service Upfit (MTU) features a total capacity of 920 gallons of diesel (eight 15-gallon tanks) along with options for DEF, grease and power systems. The Service & Lube Truck Upfit (SLU) features 690 gallons of service fluids configured in 25-, 55- and 115-gallon tanks and can include fresh oil, reclaimed oil, coolant, reclaimed coolant and diesel. Select configurations can also be equipped with DEF and grease.
