Stryker Welding was tasked with fabricating a stainless steel truck bed for a customer from the trucking industry. Using a variety of tools and processes, we created a quality truck bed of varying gauge 304 stainless steel.
The bed, also featuring a ball hitch for towing trailers, weighs 1,600 pounds and costs $6,500 installed. We made sure to consult with this customer throughout the fabrication process to ensure we were meeting the customer’s specific needs.
