Quick Response Fire Truck Flatbeds

We Use Your Input and Design Ideas - Then Build to Fit Your Needs

Fire Truck Flatbed quick response fire truck body

With the rough terrain you encounter, you need a truck body to go with it.


Why give Highway Products a Hot Shot at your business?

Here's 10 great reasons!

1. We give you the opportunity to outfit your quick response fire truck body the way it works for you. Some options can only be added while the body is in production. Like this under-bed hose storage (shown at right). Place your cursor over the picture to see.

Highway Products manufacturers the body to your requirements.

2. You have a demanding job with your fire trucks on call 24-7, loaded to the max with as much water as they can carry. Traveling off-road to get to the hot spots puts these small but incredible rigs in some tough spots. Twisting the truck frame and flatbed are a given.  

This means: No skimping allowed on understructure with our brand of Strongback™ flatbeds. T-6061 aluminum alloy SAE structurally proven and designed extrusions are standard material demanded by our engineering staff. The outside channel beams are six inch T6061 aluminum with 4"inch cross members welded every 12" inches. No rivets to pop loose on a side-hill here.

3. Just as you can pick the perfect flatbed, you can also pick the type of pump system from the manufacturer you like. Some fire companies, with in-house mechanics, prefer to build their own. Most will purchase a "slip-on" unit which has a water tank-pump combination that can simply be slipped on your truck bed. Notice the spare tire racks on top of these well thought out fire trucks.




4. Not only can we build flatbeds to your spec, Highway Products is the largest manufacture of custom truck tool boxes on the planet.

Optimum storage solutions is our business. Building semi truck tool boxes was our beginning and is the base of our manufacturing. So you know you will get the best tool boxes made. We guarantee ours for as long as you own it.

5. Hinges are the back-bone of any tool box. As you can see, we don't skimp here. Stainless Steel is standard and we don't use rivets to fasten them. Stainless Steel Torx® screws are as tough as it gets. Plus, just in case of damage, you can replace the hinge or door yourself without having some fancy rivet gun.

6. Your choice of locks. The most common is our Tee Lock. The same lock we use on our semi truck tool boxes. We also have the D-ring style preferred by some fire fighters. The D-ring style lock is easier to open with gloves on. Regardless of the style you choose, your compartments will all be keyed alike. Or, we can key one separate for special reasons.

5. If you need accessories, we've got plenty. Receiver hitches, 5th wheel and goose-neck hitches, tie-down eyes, tie-down winches, baskets, tool boxes, stake pockets, LED lights packages, backup alarms, backup cameras and sensors and....Take a look at our flatbed web page where you'll see some of the same pictures and the many accessories we carry.

6. Need installation? What's better than having your flatbed installed at the factory. Highway Products is registered with the (USDOT) U.S. Department of Transportation & National Highway Traffic Safety Administration as a final stage manufacturer. We are also an approved drop-ship facility for all the major brands of trucks.  



7. We can ship to your door. Many of our flatbeds can be shipped via common carrier truck. This 9 foot bed easily ships in one package. The tail board comes pre welded with head board and under bed tool boxes predrilled and ready to bolt on the flatbed.

We can ship this package to your door or to your favorite up fitter, body shop, or weld shop.

8. Carry more water. The less your truck weighs the more water you can carry. Weight is a problem. Highway Products Strongback™ is 100% Light-weight aluminum.  
9. Service - Repeat customers are our biggest asset. We know getting an order from you the second time depends on how well we performed the first time. Our goal, give you that good of product and service to where you will not only buy from us again, but brag about us to your friends.   Quick Response Fire Trucks for wildland fires by Highway Products, Inc.
10.Want to know about Warranty? - Warranties are only as good as any company wants them to be. We don't have a one year limited or any of the fancy small print to send you. Our simple warranty is, if something breaks, we fix it.
