Utility work trucks: A.R.E. recently displayed at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis, Indiana. The display was centered around the expansion of its WorkCover LS™ fiberglass tonneau cover line to include 2009 to 2014 Ford F-150 short bed trucks.

“The WorkCover LS was originally designed for small trucks, but demand has increased for a fiberglass cover for full-size trucks, such as the Ford F-150,” said Jim Blayne, national fleet sales manager for A.R.E.’s Commercial Fleet Division. “Our latest tonneau cover for the commercial market turns the bed of the truck into a well-organized, weatherproof tool container ideal for service workers.”

Starting at $1,450 MSRP, A.R.E.’s WorkCover LS features two doors on each side. Additionally, the entire cover opens effortlessly from the rear of the truck using a hinge system at the front of the cover. Painted to match the vehicle, the WorkCover LS features approximately three extra inches of storage room above the bed rail and offers the driver excellent rear visibility from the cab of the truck. Designed to keep products secure and out of sight, A.R.E. offers options such as remote keyless entry and LED strip lighting technology to illuminate the bed.

Other items on display included an updated Deluxe Commercial Unit (DCU) showing improved roller rods for rear and side doors, LED Lighting, and a CargoGlide sliding bed system. A.R.E. also displayed their ToolMaster Series cap equipped with an AluRack ladder rack, LED lighting, and side “windoors” for easy access.
