I've been searching the web for a box where you can put onto a cab and chassis and make the truck into a crew cab. So you can buy a single cab and put this box on and it holds men. almost looks like an I pack you but on dumps. If you have ever seen the Brickman Group they have them on there trucks. If any one knows what it is call or where i could find it please help me out.

Thanks ShadyTree

All the brickman group trucks around here are Ford crew cabs with dump body mounted on them.

Oh ok, in Jersey they have single cab trucks and then they put this box right behind the cab that fits another three guys and then an 8ft rack dump on the back. Ive been lookin all over for it, Its a great idea an probably cheap.

Thanks for the help

I've seen them on trucks around here, I've seen fiberglass ones that fit inside the bed's of trucks to make it extended cab with a door at the back and i've seen big ones like on that truck but i dont know where to get them.

i'm sure any upfitter could build one for you. most people call them personnel carriers. they are made with steel supports and sheet metal for the skin. Most of the time these cabs are built outside a truck factory. the big ones in kentucky for ford are manning truck equipment or mchenry equipment. the way truck prices are these days, it is actually cheaper to buy a crewcab chassis over upfitting a two door cab and chassis.
