Built-To-Last Truck Box
Originally designed for the logging industry, Quest now makes the built-to-last boxes for farmers and anyone else who does the kind of heavy hauling that destroys conventional truck boxes, or anyone with a rusted-out box on their pickup.
Quest does factory installations at its facility in Calgary, Alberta, or it sells readyto-assemble kits that farmers can put together and paint themselves.
Inside dimensions of the tough-built boxes match those of factory boxes. They're made of 11-ga. steel with a heavy-duty sub frame of 1 by 2 by 1/8-in. sq. tubing and a double-walled tailgate. They're available as either long or short box to fit both domestic and import trucks as well as 1-ton duallies.
Options include headache rack, side rails, notched tailgate, removable tailgate, spare tire carrier, step-on bumper, and 1/8, 3/16, or 1/4-in. steel floor. A polyurethane box liner is available and box can be galvanized.
Factory installation includes removing the old box, mounting the new box and matching company paint colors as well as installation of a new light package and wiring. Four days is required at the factory to install, paint and wire a new box.
A complete installation sells for under $3,000. Do-it-yourself, weld-together kits start at under $900.
