Choosing the right flatbed for your pickup truck can be a tough decision. With todays gas prices more people are choosing aluminum over steel because aluminum flatbeds are 50% lighter than steel flatbeds. Reducing the weight of your flatbed truck increases fuel economy and allows you to carry more cargo. Aluminum is just as strong as steel and its strength to weight ratio far exceeds steel. Aluminum will never rust and no matter how much paint you put on steel, it will find a way to rust. Our standard flatbed package comes with options that you would normally pay extra for. We offer over 20 additional options that you can add; guaranteeing that you will get what you want. We have been building flatbeds for over 30 years and trusted by the government, fire departments, loggers, ranchers, and truckers.
Highway Products flatbeds are constructed from heavy gauge marine grade aluminum and they are fully welded without the use of rivets. A standard deck is 1/8" diamond plate with square corners. Channel sills are full length and each cross member is placed on 12" centers. The side rails are 6" extruded "C" channels that house LED lights and rope hooks. We frame in the tail apron and use gussets to maximize strength and durability.
If you are planning on loading things onto a flatbed in tight areas that a forklift can’t get to, you might consider adding a lift gate.
This is a great option if you plan on carrying long items on top of your flatbed.
Nobody likes to have their trailer plug-in dangling from the tail apron. We install the 7-prong receiver right into the tail apron, saving you time and limiting frustrations of poor connections. The weather tight seal on the trailer plugin expels water and dirt when not in use. We use a convoluted plastic tubing that houses and protects the wires that run from the truck to the flatbed.
While other manufacturers headboards are typically a “One size fits all”, HPI beds are built specific to each truck. This ensures the best fit and the best possible look. We contour each headboard to fit the curve of your truck. The super tough frames are constructed from a 4" aluminum channel that is completely seamless. The vertical bars or mesh backboard is then fully welded to the contoured frame. This non-rivet design adds super strength and good looks. Highway Products Flatbeds are hands down the sexiest looking beds on the market.
Fuel filler bezels are cut into the bed at the time of install. The placement of the truck's fuel tank determines where the bezel is installed. The fuel filler bezel comes with all Highway Products utility bodies.
Most Flatbeds have fuel fillers low in the side rails, which makes for slow fueling - the Pickup Flatbed by HPI has it up in the headboard so it fills up to 5x faster. (Please note: This equipment is possible only with certain tank location configurations from the manufacturer. Please check with our sales team).
Most flatbeds cannot incorporate your stock camera or sensors - HPI does this every day. Make sure to ask your sales rep.
Some trucks are ordered without a receiver hitch - HPI solves the problem with a custom hitch made specifically for your truck/flatbed.
Optional strap winches are an easy option to add to any flatbed that's built tough enough. Don't try to bolt these through a riveted bed!!
Great spot for tools and equipment you need to get to in a hurry. We can make them in any size or shape.
Great organizational tool - we can make them in any size and we have different weight capacities to meet your needs.
Just one more way to make your truck bed work for you and your business.
Every year truck manufactures change designs, styles and models. It is impossible to make one utility body that will fit properly on a thousand different chassis. We take pride in building aluminum service bodies that will fit your truck. Our salesmen and engineers create detailed drawings for every truck body. This fail-proof system ensures a perfect fit, every time!
We place LED lights in the bumper on all flatbeds. These LED lights are maintenance free. They are brighter and have a longer life span than conventional lights. If you left these lights on all day every day, they would last over 2,000 days.
Good tie down spots on a flatbed are essential. Highway Products has you covered with our proprietary Billet aluminum tie down hooks. These tie down spots have aluminum hooks for ropes or motorcycle straps as well as holes for installing D-Rings(clevis’).
We stock and install all of the major brands of 5th wheel hitches, but highly suggest the Reese 30K with the Goose neck Combo. We mount a 1/2" Steel plate directly to your frame and mount the 5th wheel hitch to the plate. Remove the double pivot Reese head and you are ready to use the 30k lb. rated gooseneck ball mounted to the plate or close the hatch and put your bed to work. This is the same hitch we use on our Highwayman RV Hauler bed. Flatbeds make the best All-around hauler and work platform possible.
Air ride suspensions are very popular on heavier trucks because they give you such a smooth ride and are so much easier on your trailer. The more advanced systems will raise or lower your truck as well as adjust to the load you are carrying so your truck doesn't sag in the rear. We sell and install Kelderman Air rides for both 2 and 4 wheel drive trucks and can recommend the best option to suit your needs.
One of the most popular options for a flatbed. Easily removable, lightweight, and super tough. We can make them short or tall depending on what your needs are. We have multiple styles and finishes available.
Whether you plan on getting aluminum side rails from Highway Products or you want to make your own out of wood, your covered. Our Flatbed comes standard with 2x4 stake pockets that allow you to add or remove stake sides at any time. The stake pockets are sized just right for 2”x4” ‘s so you can easily change the setup of your flatbed.
Underbody Boxes, low side boxes, high side boxes, boxes with steps, boxes with drawers, boxes with an air compressor and/or custom boxes; regardless, adding boxes to your flatbed makes it completely customizable.
Available as an option on Highway Products service bodies, flatbeds and The Highwayman RV Hauler are custom fabricated pull-out steps, made from the same heavy-duty aluminum as the rest of the body. Easy to open and close, built securely into the body and right where you need it to be.
Aluminum is half the weight of steel; allowing a heavier load which gives better fuel economy while carrying additional cargo.
Many of our high quality products can be shipped via common carrier truck. We can ship this package to your door or to your favorite up fitter, body shop, or weld shop.
Highway Products proudly uses premium Alcoa aluminum to build the highest quality American made metal products available.
