By ordering a component body you’re able to customize various parts of the body while maintaining a standard price point. Choose from an “H” or “V” configuration, flip or standard tops and even pick a bumper style plus a few other options to make this standard body right for you.
The modular designs also allow for quick and easy repair of individual components. If a side pack is wrecked, you can replace it within a few hours by simply un-bolting the old one and replacing it with a new one.
The CB body is available in Aluminum, Galvanneal and Stainless Steel making it the most versatile product in the market for light and medium duty service bodies.

The Component Body (CB) is a modular design that allows the various components to move through the manufacturing process more efficiently. All components are powder coated at the piece part stage allowing for superior paint coverage. The painted components are assembled in the final production phase resulting in a complete service body. Customers can choose from a variety of options that can be swapped out in the field or in an up-fitters facility. Due to the modular design, parts are readily available for shipping or assembling into a specific body configuration as needed. All components of the CB body may be replaced if damaged, rather than replacing the entire body.
The Service Body (SB) is a traditional weld together design using the same compartment configurations as the CB body. Options include a crane reinforced compartment, transverse front compartment and also a raised front compartment. Side-packs welded to the universal frame/floor eliminates the ability to easily replace the side-packs if damaged. Several bolt on options are available with this option as the overall size of the bodies are the same.
The Cutaway Stock Body was designed to replace the one-piece E-Series van and are full of features and add-on accessories that will make any job easier. This body can be fully customized to serve multiple applications including: integral aerial device mounting kits and splicer body packages.
Line bodies are a staple in the utility industry and greatly range in size and function. With a custom line body, you can be certain that when the job comes you will be able to handle it. To maximize storage, you can add top boxes and punched metal baskets or let Dakota Bodies be creative with finding other storage options for your gear.
Enclosed bodies can protect your gear and your staff almost anywhere. By building an enclosed body you’re able to keep your exterior storage and access but you also receive the added work and storage space of a trailer. These custom enclosed bodies can also be insulated for added protection from the elements.
