When it comes to getting a fast response, efficient, versatile tool, designed to help deliver high-quality services, regardless of where you are, nothing compares to specialty vehicles. A specialty vehicle is a mobile unit designed or custom upfitted to serve and meet specific needs and professional purposes, and it has quickly become trendy in Colorado.

There is an endless range of vehicle and feature combinations applied in custom specialty vehicle engineering. Depending on each of the business or projects' specific requirements, one combination will work better than the other. For more than two decades, Summit Bodyworks has been a leader in the specialty vehicles industry, and we can make your custom specialty vehicle engineering project a complete success.

Popular Specialty Tool Truck Configurations

In Thornton, each day, more and more businesses and organizations are finding the fantastic benefits of having a specialty vehicle. You can find them all over Thornton and offering all sorts of services and products, from food trucks, health clinics, spas, community reach, and of course, tool trucks.

At Summit Bodyworks, we have noticed how many Thornton businesses are getting tool trucks. They can serve for a wide range of purposes, and depending on your specific custom specialty vehicle engineering needs and goals, one configuration might work better than the other.

If you want to succeed on any custom specialty vehicle engineering project, it is vital to take an internal analysis of business and staff requirements. It is essential to listen and consider all the suggestions and comments that your staff could have. They are the ones that will be using the vehicle in the first place. So this is important because all businesses, their needs, and their goals are different, and your custom specialty vehicle engineering should be designed and built to answer all of these particular aspects.

At Summit Bodyworks, we understand how important it is to work with our customers and their staff closely. We also know how useful it is to have a good reference or start line, especially when you don’t know much about custom specialty vehicle engineering projects. Therefore, here are the three most popular tool truck configurations among Thornton businesses for you to have a better starting point.  

Cab-Chassis Tool Trucks

When it comes to tool truck custom specialty vehicle engineering projects, the cab-chassis on a Freightliner M2 is our most popular custom specialty vehicle engineering choice. We can also build it on Peterbilt, Kenworth, Isuzu, Ford, Hino, and International chassis, so you have several great custom specialty vehicle engineering options to choose from. We can build it whatever length you wish, depending on the frame you choose.


Step-Vans are another popular custom specialty vehicle engineering choice we commonly build on – either a Ford or Freightliner chassis. Step-Vans come in 16’ to 24’ body options with a locking bulkhead sliding door for store security, and you can choose a gas or diesel model, making it a great and versatile choice.


Tilt-Cabs are another option from Isuzu and Hino. This custom specialty vehicle engineering configuration is perfect for urban routes where maneuverability is of most importance. However, a smaller body doesn’t mean we need to skip on options and design; we will work with you to make every inch of the body count. Contact Summit Bodyworks today and learn more.

Whether you are a startup, entrepreneur, or an already established business, a specialty vehicle is a practical and powerful solution. It will boost your income and expand your services while getting access to a broader target audience, among many other amazing benefits your project or business could get from a custom specialty vehicle engineering solution.

If you are in the healthcare industry, a service provider, a social or community reach organization, being able to provide your staff with professional equipment will exponentially boost the quality of their performance.
