I don't believe I've ever seen a fiberglass utility box before. Neat....

I've seen one for sale about a year ago in Mississippi for a couple hundred bucks. I always liked the idea of a small truck with a utility body.

The forestry service around here had quite a few 4x4 rangers with utility boxes way back in the day. They were perfect little trucks do get down small trails while fighting forest fires.

Yeah they probably work just as well as Jeep’s (stock v stock) but can carry more.

Dude is nutso. The bed is also rotted out in places and has been patched with plywood in the bottom. I saw another post on this truck a while back and it showed the bed area, and it looked to be steel in the center and rotted out along the edges.
