Morgan Standard Truck Body


Morgan's Dry Freight Aluminum “standard” Class 4 to 7 GVW truck bodies include the innovative design, quality construction, and optional features that make them perfect dry goods delivery vehicles — regardless of what you haul!

With body lengths ranging from 10 to 28 feet, options to specify height and width parameters, and the ability to select door, bumper and lift-gate configurations to satisfy your unique needs — it's no surprise that Morgan's standard box truck body has set the standard for the industry for over 60 years!

Morgan innovation changed the van body industry when they produced an aluminum body that is aerodynamic in design, and features patented poly-tuff corners, a reinforced front-end, rugged rear frame, clearance light protectors, rain deflector and LED lighting sets -- to make it the toughest body on the road.

Aluminum Sheet and Post Design

By using weather-resistant aluminum sheet and post design, Morgan's Dry Freight Aluminum “box truck”/“straight truck” configuration offers a durable body that weighs less, offers improved fuel efficiency, resists corrosion, and provides an excellent barrier between your payload and the elements.

Various Cargo Control Interiors

Morgan attention-to-detail includes a variety of optional features that make it easy to customize the cargo area to accommodate whatever you carry.  From your choice of tie-downs and enhanced lighting and skylight packages, to flexible shelving and rack system configurations — Morgan's Dry Freight Aluminum bodies support improved cargo control, easier, more efficient access, AND a safer work environment.



Every Morgan body is customized to meet your unique needs, so you're ready to meet the unique needs of YOUR customers!


Flooring has two screws per board in a staggered pattern design for added durability; and a dome light bracket that's actually attached to the roof bow for added security, means Morgan delivers an interior workspace that's designed and BUILT to last!

Strength and stability are all that matters when it comes to your sub-frame…Pre-undercoated floorboards, tapered wood sleeper-slats and steel u-bolts, deliver the solid platform you need -- and expect from Morgan.

Ford's Next Generation SuperDuty Goes Aluminum Too



We've known this was coming for a while but Ford made it official when Raj Nair, Ford's head of product development, announced to a group of current and potential investors that the next-generation Super Duty will also be adopting an aluminum body — just like the new F-150.

The Detroit News reported the announcement while automotive journalists are test-driving the 2015 F-150 in Texas.

Ford has not announced when the next Super Duty will debut, but given the fact our spy photographer have caught quite a few Super Dutys testing this past June, August and September, we're guessing the next truck could debut as a 2016 or 2017 model. Our spies even saw one burn to the ground.

Since all Super Dutys (which account for about half of all F-Series sales at a healthy profit margin) are currently produced at only one site — the Kentucky Truck Plant in Louisville — modifying it presents a problem. To prepare for the 2015 F-150, Ford shut down one plant for modification while still producing the half-ton at its other F-150 plant. Ford can't do that with the Super Dutys.

When the Kentucky plant is shut down for the eight to 10 weeks (and that might be an optimistic amount of time) to refit for the new Super Dutys, it will deliver a huge hit to Ford's bottom line. You can bet Chevrolet, GMC and Ram will be ready to take advantage of the changeover by offering special deals on heavy-duty models during Ford's plant shutdown. However, it wouldn't surprise us if Ford had some type of backup plan to produce Super Dutys somewhere else.

Morgan Cut- Away Cargo Body Mounted on Ford Transit


This Transit cutaway box truck is one of 70 in-stock Cargo units in the Work Truck Solutions network. This new Transit chassis includes a Morgan FRP cut-away type body,

The Transit front suspension consists of subframe-mounted MacPherson struts and a stabilizer bar for smoother, flatter cornering, combined with progressive rear leaf springs and heavy-duty gas-charged dampers for wellcontrolled ride quality – regardless of load status

Transmission: Six-speed automatic with SelectShift® capability Configuration/series: Van, wagon XL, wagon XLT

Engines: 3.7-liter Ti-VCT V6, 275 hp, 260 lb.-ft. torque; 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6, 320 hp, 400 lb.-ft. torque; 3.2-liter Power Stroke® turbo diesel I-5, 185 hp, 350 lb.-ft. torque

Morgan Cut-a-way Box:

Fiberglass Reinforced Plywood (FRP) panels are built of sturdy 3/8" plywood for improved durability; and surfaced with a polyester resin reinforced with high strength woven fiberglass, for greater resistance to scratches and dents.

Fiberglass Reinforced Plywood Construction




Morgan's Fiberglass Reinforced Plywood Cut-A-Way bodies are tough enough to handle the same heavy use as full-size models, but offer the advantage of a compact delivery vehicle that makes delivery in tight, urban environments — easier.

Morgan's Parcel Van cab configuration helps to reduce driver exposure to the elements (and traffic) by providing quick and easy access to the cargo area from the cab.

Resists Scratches and Dents

The rigors of heavy use can show up as scratches and dents that compromise the appearance of most bodies — EXCEPT Morgan's FRP. Not only does FRP stand up to minor impacts without showing signs of wear and tear, but the smooth, unmarred finish maintains a professional appearance — even after years of use.

Great for Graphics

The same material that makes FRP extra-strong also creates a smooth, seamless surface that's perfect for custom graphics.

Various Cargo Interior Options




Not only do Morgan FRP bodies make it easy to secure almost any cargo configuration, but a range of options — including lighting and translucent roof packages, flooring, scuff plate and bulkhead selections, and even side door size and placement specifications — are available to make access to your cargo easier, safer and more efficient.

A variety of cargo configurations and E-track, Solid Hardwood-slat and tie-ring securement options are available to make it easy to secure cargo at almost any point…and maximize payload.
