Dakota Gen 2 MinDakota Bodies has released its new and improved weld-together service body.

Dakota Bodies’ traditional weld-together design has seen many improvements since its release in 1997 and the company says its updated Gen II body offers developments to improve price, performance and appearance.

“I think customers will appreciate the modernized design elements, new price point and ease of upfitting with the universal mounting kit,” says Jeff Orthaus, CEO. “Times change and it’s important that we adapt and continuously grow our products to fit current and future needs.”

According to the company, the weld-together design of the Gen II Service Body provides a long-term, solid connection between parts to achieve exceptional structural integrity. The most notable update to this body is the included universal mounting kit designed to fit 2020 and newer Ford, Ram and GM chassis.

The company says other major design updates include:

  • Compression T-handle door latches
  • Cast aluminum fenderettes
  • Silver zinc finish tailgate brackets
  • Fuel filler cup in streetside fender
  • Modernized bumper appearance

Dakota Bodies says the Gen II Service Body is completely customizable to fit each customer’s needs and is immediately available for quotes.
