Wood Pickup Boxes Never Rust or Dent
"Reaction to the new boxes has been tremendous," says Steven Lamphier, Lamco President, about the new boxes. "Wood gives your pickup a distinctive look and maintains that look for the life of the pickup - unlike metal boxes which, because of rust and dents, can ruin the looks of a new pickup in just a short time."
Lamco boxes feature "classic" wood stake sides that are easily removed to turn the pickup into a flatbed. Although the standard size bed is 8 ft. long with 20-in. sides,
Lamphier says they can be built longer, and with higher sides, to fit most any need. All feature a standard drop tailgate and have no wheel wells.
The bed and sideboards are made from 1-in. tongue and grooved Southern pine, and the stakes and other structural pieces from oak. The entire rig is coated with a clear preservative. An optional coat of varnish turns it into a "Sunday Special". The box weighs 400 to 500 lbs.
Wood pickup boxes retail for $370. Lamco also makes wooden truck and pickup cattle racks.
